Newport

Newport, introduced in 1957, is a brand of menthol cigarettes produced by Lorillard Tobacco Company of Greensboro, North Carolina, United States.  In the United States it is considered to be one of the most selling and preferable brands from the menthol category. Newport cigarettes are commonly referred to as “newies,” “new-pees,” , “ports,” and “ghetto breath mints.” They also have many slang terms such a “shorts” “longs” and “loosies”, all of which could be used for other brands but started in the 60’s with Newports and still usually refer to Newports. Newports are particularly popular among the African-American community; a 2005 survey states that 49.5% of cigarette sales to African-Americans were Newports.

Newport has these flavors: full, medium, lights, and “M Blend” — a mixture of a light and a medium flavor. Each is packaged in Regular (Kings, Shorts) and 100’s. The 100 mm has a longer filter. There is also a 25 mm package.
