What are the best selling cigarette brands in US? If you smoke you probably have suggestions what they are, but now Insider Monkey has come up with an arresting article with lots of data in it. Check it out together! The U.S. cigarette industry has made several changes in response to new regulations like completely removing terms such as ‘light’ and ‘mild’ on cigarette packets. In 2003, the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control also mandated displaying pictorial as well as textual warning messages on the cigarette packs to dissuade smokers from smoking. The industry also witnessed an increase in federal excise tax in 2009.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of best selling cigarette brands in US from their list.
The first one is Lucky Strike. Another British American Tobacco’s brand Lucky Strike is one of the best-selling cigarette brands in the U.S. British American Tobacco’s top five brands constitute about 50% of its total annual revenues. The brand was created in 1871 and lives up to its true and original American cigarette reputation till date. The next cigarette brand on our short list now should be Camel. Camel is another best-selling cigarette brand in the USA manufactured by R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. It is largest and fastest growing brand of the R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co.’s portfolio. With a history dating back to a century, the Camel brand of cigarettes is best known for its unique blend of flue-cured, burley and exotic Turkish tobaccos. The success and popularity of the brand can be measured by the fact nearly half of all cigarettes sold in the U.S. were Camels in the early 1920s. Today the brand is expanding with further innovations such as Camel Crush and Menthol with Cool Burst technology. At last, but not least we are mentioning Newport. Originally manufactured by Lorillard, Newport cigarettes are now a part of the R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co.’s brand portfolio. Launched in 1957, today Newport is America’s #1 selling menthol cigarette brand. The brand also offers non-menthol cigarettes with a unique and rich taste. Its latest Newport Platinum is being launched for adult menthol smokers with a refreshingly smooth menthol taste that is different from the traditional Newport family.
