Don't know if this is the right place to ask this but since there is a lot of discussion about 120s, I'll do it and hope for the best. Does anyone know for sure if Carlton 120s have been discontinued? Sheetz used to carry them all the time but no longer do, and I've looked at every pharmacy I pass. Thanks in advance.
I thought that about maybe in the early 2000's I saw an ad in a magazine for Carlton ultra lights 120's and the same advertisement was also for a superslim version of Carlton 120's. I'm surprised that Salem hasn't had a 120mm length cigarette as part of the brand. I haven't seen any More brand cigarettes for a while, and I wish there was a Virginia slims 120's soft pack. I know a smoke shop in Champaign sold Malibu 120's, but it was different packaging and the cigarette itself looked similar to what Misty slims 120's looks like now. I haven't even seen any Eve or Saratoga brand cigarettes for a long time. I haven't seen any Tourney slims 120's for a long time either. Wish there were more brands that did 120mm length cigarettes.
Just bought a pack of the new Misty Slims 120's, and even though the look of the pack has changed, the cigarette itself hasn't changed. It went from 2 blue bands (for the original blue pack) and two green bands (for menthol) to a cigarette that just has 1 greyish silver band. When Virginia Slims 120's came out, the brand name was on the body itself. Now it's just on the filter like most cigarettes.
Hi, I thought I would mention a couple of things I found out recently regarding 120 brands. Apparently, Saratogas have been discontinued. I called Phillip Morris to ask about it and I couldn't get anyone to tell me anything about the current status of Saratogas. I have looked for them everywhere I go and this includes some large cigarette suppliers such as JR Cigar which used to carry them. At least in North and South Carolina, it seems as though there are none to be found.
Eves are readily available in North Carolina. Walgreens carries them and you will occasionally see them in convenience stores, though not many.
Mores have recently undergone a revamp of the packaging. I like the old package much better as the new one looks like an old Winston package. My understanding is that Mores are available in the normal red and green (menthol) packs and in gold and silver packs which are lights and lights menthol. I have seen the red and green on the shelf but never the gold and silver. The White Lights are gone but I'm thinking the gold and silver are the same cigarettes.
After a call to RJ Reynolds I found that Carlton 120s are still being made; however, all the places I used to see them on the shelf no longer carry them. JR Cigar still had them by the carton a few months ago but I think all of those stores have been converted to upscale cigar lounges now, so I think cigarettes are gone. Sheetz used to carry them all the time but they stopped, I guess because they weren't selling enough to justify shelf space. May not hurt to look there in other parts of the eastern seaboard, though.
What I do see a lot of on the shelf in convenience stores is Virginia Slims (the phrase "a lot of" is relative), Misty, Capri and Eve. I have seen Seneca in a few places.
I have never seen Miss Diamond, Cigaronne or Jackpot. I used to see Tourneys but they've been gone a long time in this area. Maybe about as long as Max, and we saw the last of those in 2010.
