As long as Virginia Slims and Capri keep the menthol 120s going, that's all that matters to me. I've heard a few store clerks say that the Virginia Slims menthol 120s are very popular. Which surprised me, you don't see people smoking them all that often. But apparently they are one of the more popular brands at some gas stations near me.
Capris are a little harder to find, but not super hard.
There's a [South Dakota] gas station right across from me that sells the entire line of both Virginia Slims and Misty cigarettes. There's a limited line of Virginia Slims, Misty, and Capri at the local Walmart on the opposite side of town. Limited line of Virginia Slims, and Misty at a grocery store called Kessler's just blocks away from me, and I think Ken's (that's on the opposite side of town) has a limited line, I believe of both Misty and Virginia Slims. I believe that most other gas stations in town have a limited line of Virginia Slims and Misty cigarettes.
Thanks for this info! I did a bit of research, and found this:
"In 1999, L&M sold its Chesterfield, L&M and Lark brands to Philip Morris Cos. for $300 million, leaving Eve the only premium brand produced by L&M."
So it seems Eve are still produced. This is great news! If you can send in a photo, I can add this to the thread, or if I send you $20, could you ship me out a pack?
Miss Diamond 120 are also sold around the Illinois region.
I really like this board, Dan, thanks for making it. If you like Eves, and have any fond memories of the colorful flower bands from the 70s, 80s, and 90s, you might like these 2 pdf files I made of high quality scans from my collection. They are formatted to print in color on easy-peel clear labels (Avery 5663 or 15663) and they print in perfect actual size. When trimmed to wrap around the filter, they cover the vent holes of the Eves exactly. Just be careful with the Ultra Lights (Turquoise or Sapphire), because the nicotine goes up from 0.6 - 0.7 mg to roughly 2.0 mg just by covering the holes. Enjoy!
