I have been looking all over for these Camel Exotic Blends I see advertised everywhere. I want to try the "Crema" kind (with vanilla) and the "Dark Mint," but noplace seems to have them. "Mandarin Twist" sounds interesting as well.
Anyone tried them? Know where to buy?

I suppose I could start the "continue smoking together" thread!

Actually, I'm not a big smoker. I have maybe two or three on average in a week. More if I have a pack, but if I don't want to spend the $, I can easily go forever without. It's just something I enjoy from time to time, but I'm too cheap to spend more than $5 every few weeks on it.
I just wanted to try these new "flavors."

i've tried the dark chocolate and the madarin mint. i must say i prefer the mandarin mint flavored ones better than the chocolate. something about chocolate and smoke just don't go together for a flavor. the madarin mint had a twinge of a sweetness to it. i cut open the filter and there was a piece of charcoal or something (looked like a zippo flint) that had the mandarin scent on it. they're nothing special though...just a mild hint of flavor so you're not really missing much to be honest.

The Turkish Jade is a pretty good menthol. It's much smoother than other menthols. But for the best flavor, nothing beats a Sampoerna XTra clove cigarette. Those make my tongue go numb!

I used to like those Djarum dark clove cigs.Those are the best alternatively flavored cigarette.
Thanks for the thread Joel, as I have now become a part in the "Quitting smoking with Rain" thread.

I really like the Turkish Golds.I have been smoking them for along time,great flavor and the a.m hacking aint too bad.I tried a few packs of the Turkish Jades,I usually do not smoke menthols but theese were pretty tastey.I might have to look into some of the other flavors mentioned.Are they the same price or cost both arms?

Actually, I find this thread oddly inspiring.
I was starting to feel like a smoke...now that I've read this thread, I don't.

I used to be a big fan of RJ Reynolds specialty brands (the Honey Bees were awesome) but I'm not that big into menthols anymore. I bum one every now and then from my friend who smokes them, but they are much, much worse for you that regular cigarettes (the worse of two evils, I know).
Still better than cloves though. Sure they aren't addictive, but the clove smoke is actually corrosive to your lung tissue and can cause burns and perforations.

Joel-
you're in chicago, cool. I purchased an entire set of the tins from a cigarette girl at the Martini Ranch, located at Chicago and Franklin.
I liked the orange ones best, my gf liked the creama (with coffe)
