Salem Alaska Menthol cigarettes go cold and furry

If Sarah Palin were a smoker, her brand of choice might just be coming from Japan now. Salem has just released a special Alaska Menthol edition that plays up its “cool” (as in “cold”) factor in both packaging and product. Featuring “triple menthol” with package design that incorporates antlers on a white box, these are clearly a winter brand taking advantage of the 49th state’s recent publicity overload.

As an added bonus, the new packs come with a branded portable ashtray designed with a fake white “fur” material, but don’t think these are just targeted at women!
