    I'm always wanting something that closely resembles shisha and I wondered if supermarkets do flavoured cigarettes?

    If so, what are they called?

    Just menthols AFAIK, and the EU is trying to make flavoured cigarettes illegal.

    I dont know of any, but electronic cigs come in all sorts of flavours and feel very much like shisha. Much safer, too.

    Just make sure you get the juices WITHOUT nicotine, unless you fancy adiction.

    Would you mind if they were electronic cigarettes? I know you can get some of those cola flavoured (my mum smokes them), amongst other flavours.

    Why is the EU trying to make them illegal?

    Because they think it encourages people to take up smoking, especially young people. They are also trying to ban 10 packs.
    I know a lot of social smokers who will just buy the odd menthol 10 pack for the weekend, these are the people they're trying to target I presume.

    Supermarkets in this country tend not to sell flavoured tobaccos (aside from the aforementioned menthols), you'll mostly find them in specialist tobacconists.

    If you want a quick/easy/cheap but altogether less authentic experience (and are happy with the funny looks), you could always buy some flavoured rolling papers and wrap them around your normal cigarette.

    I'm not really sure what's available in the shops (I've never used them myself, I just have a peculiar friend who does it quite a lot and insists it's great) but having had a quick look on Ebay, the most common brands seem to be Rips, Juicy Jay and E-Z Wider.

    Flavoured cigarettes are disgusting if you're an actual smoker. The smoke feels different from a shisha and just gives you this weird feeling in the back of your throat. Avoid them.
