Raspberry cigar? Prime Time's Raspberry Flavored Little Cigars

Pros:It's a little cigar, and it's raspberry flavored

Cons:Not a serious cigar by any means

The Bottom Line: If you're in the mood for a flavored cigar, try Prime Time's Raspberry Flavored Little Cigars.


Sometimes, you’re in line at your local convenience store, and suddenly, the need to smoke a cigar strikes you. (OK, not everybody, but it happens to a lot of us.) Convenience stores, and gas stations, and sometimes, even supermarkets, only stock little cigars. And if you’re going to smoke a little cigar, you may as well smoke a flavored one. I happen to like little cigars, and in this case, I’m smoking Prime Time’s Raspberry Flavored Little Cigars. And while I might prefer some of their other flavors, this is quite good.

Headquartered in Phoenix, AZ, but manufactured in North Carolina, Prime Time International has been making their flavored cigar lineup since 1989. They are hip and trendy; the preferred smoking option among sharply-dressed club goers and the like, which instantly gives you street cred for smoking them. They are great conversation starters: I’ve had women, old guys outside of bars, aspiring local hip hop artists, and homeless guys approach me and ask what I’m smoking, and sometimes, can they have one? They come in flavors as diverse as peach, strawberry, vanilla, cinnamon, chocolate mint, rum, and yes, raspberry.

Open up a pack of these and you’re instantly greeted by a nice raspberry scent (which is fantastic as long as you happen to like raspberries.) And while the smell isn’t quite as strong as I’ve found with their peach and strawberry flavors, it’s still quite pleasant.

Put one to your lips and you’ll notice an enjoyable raspberry flavor. Again, it’s not as noticeable as the peach or strawberry flavors, but it’s real, and it’s spectacular. I often just leave one on my lips for a few minutes just to get the taste. Light it, and it lights easily—this cigar is the same size as a regular-sized cigarette, and lights just as easily—and you’ll get a nice raspberry flavor as you smoke; the filter is simply packed with flavor.

And as you inhale these (and I know that you’re not supposed to inhale cigars, but these smoke like a cigarette, so you may as well inhale away as I do,) you’ll notice that they inhale quite easily. They’re about as smooth as their Swisher Sweets counterparts. Not quite as smooth as an American Spirit cigarette, but much, much smoother than a Winchester Little Cigar.

As with all little cigars, Prime Time Raspberry Flavored Little Cigars are made from “predominantly natural tobacco ingredients with non-tobacco ingredients added.” Of course they don’t tell you just what these “non-tobacco ingredients” are. Flavor, naturally, but what else is lurking inside this tasty smoking experience?

Obviously, something that can, according to the label, cause lung cancer, heart disease, emphysema, and can complicate pregnancy. Also, according to the State of California, they can cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.

Still, you’re in line at, say, 7-Eleven, and you suddenly feel like smoking something. And maybe, just maybe, you like raspberries. Well, I don’t ever recall seeing a Swisher Sweet Raspberry Flavored Cigar. But Prime Time has one. It’s smooth, it’s got great flavor, and it’s honestly hipper than a Swisher. You can find them at convenience stores, gas stations, Smoker Friendly, and, in this case, at Safeway. They come in boxes of 20, 10, or in singles. Average price that I pay in Colorado for a 20 pack is $5.36, including tax. So if you’re looking for a raspberry-flavored little cigar, look no further than Prime Time’s Raspberry Flavored Little Cigars.
