Cigars came in boxes of 25!

jw517jw517 Wi.Posts: 236 ✭✭✭
Way back when,I always saw cigars sold in boxes of 25,a pak of 5, or singles. I know the answer to this question,but it just hurts me in my gizzard. Why do they have to mess with the counts all the time? Now you see box of 18. Pak of 15. Box of 21! Do they really think we don't get the fact they are hiding the price. Making it hard to compare prices. Just selling less for more! Yes ,this might be a dumb thread but it pisses me off a little. I'll buy 25!  Signed: Grumpy Old Man

    I'm going to go get a 9 pak of beer now. And a pak of 17 cigarettes for my brother!

    ok,fine! I'll just sit here all alone thinking back to when my 6th grade teacher told me there are no dumb questions. Tear,tear.

    This should really be redirected to the "things I hate" discussion. Remember the good old days when there was just one discussion per topic  :p

    That's what I was crying about! I see a good deal and then see its 15 cigars or 18 or 10. The only 50 boxes I've seen are the machine made or the cazadores.

    I think Davis is on the right track with his idea of boxes coming to the factory in a size that won't accommodate all vitolas.  It never dawned on me that those occasional blocks of cedar we find in some boxes might be a result of that.

    Not to change the subject but,anyone who can guess the exact number of tobacco seeds in this pint jar will win a half teaspoon of seed! I don't know how many so I'll have to count them.

    Wow I didn't know tobacco seeds were so small. Hows the germination on them and where did you buy them? Been thinking about growing some

    My guess is 3,987,258

    I took them from the plants I grew. Germination was 95 percent . I'm testing them again as we speak. They came from these.

    got to be enough to plant 2 square miles I'd guess.

    @WaterNerd ; I grew some CT shade leaves last season. 
    Germination was fairly decent but they are finicky little seedlings. 

    Overall the plants did pretty well and topped out around 6 feet tall.

    Unfortunately I didn't end up keeping any leaves because something (looked like aphids) just devoured the leaves when we were away on vacation. 

    I ordered mine here --- http://www.victoryseeds.com/tobacco.html.  
    Pretty sure I have some left.  Let me know if you're interested, I'll check next week and if so, I can certainly send you some. 



    * I have a new address as of 3/24/18 *

    Aphids are a big problem! I took the garden hose and sprayed them off the underside of every leaf. It was hell! I then used a safe pesticide. This was long before harvest! It's amazing a insect could survive eating nicotine like that.

    I bought two boxes of Big Paybacks on different occasions --- fifty apiece.

    Love those boxes. Absolutely the best cedar flanges I've seen. Inch and a quarter high.

    The La Zona Habano comes in a box of 80.  If only I had a walk-in humidor, and money to burn.
    I'll gladly bomb you Tuesday for an Opus today.
