READ MORE ABOUT BACKWOODS SMOKES AT WIKIPEDIA……Backwoods Smokes were released in the United States shortly after the Public Health Cigarette Smoking Act was enacted by President Richard Nixon on 1 April 1970. They were a part of a wide attempt by cigarette manufacturers at the time to circumvent the national ban on cigarette advertising, which came about as both consumers and professionals became more aware of the harmful effects of cigarette smoking.
Fearing loss of profit from being unable to advertise cigarettes through the heavy influence of television, several companies began to market “little cigars” instead. This allowed their new products to be advertised to the television-viewing public without violating the new ordinance enacted by President Nixon. Bakkwoodz Silver Bullet
Backwoods Smokes were designed to have a rustic, “manly” appeal to them, and to appear as natural as possible. It can be seen from the cat – and even the product name – that marketing was directed heavily at outdoorsmen and similar groups. Emphasis is placed upon the fact that the cigars are made from all-natural tobacco with no homogenized components. They are frequently classified as mild and flavorful. Over the years, the company began to produce different flavors and types of these cigars, much like most other small cigar companies in the market today. Bakkwoodz Silver Bullet
Backwoods Smokes were advertised heavily throughout the 1970s and 1980s, with virtually no changes being made to their target group during this time. An example advertisement from 1983 shows a man climbing the side of a snowy mountain, with the phrase “If you ever wanted to climb Mt. Rainier, you’re a natural Backwoods man” in large print. In the foreground, a hand is holding up a pack of Backwoods Smokes that says “Wild ‘N Mild Smokes, All Natural Tobacco”. In a sidebar, the advertisement also reads: Bakkwoodz Silver Bullet
