(Newser) – If a toffee-flavored cigarette is your idea of a good smoke, you should have stocked up earlier this week. New FDA regulations banning candy-flavored, fruit-flavored, clove-flavored, or any other kind of flavored cigarettes bar menthol have now come into effect, Consumerist reports. The new regulations also ban cigarette makers from using terms like "mild" or "light" for their product, meaning Camel Lights are now Camel Blues.
