Individual Woodtip Swisher Sweets Cigar

Swisher Sweets are cigars manufactured by Swisher International, Inc. in Jacksonville, Florida.

History[edit]

The company began in 1861 when David Swisher received a small cigar business in settlement of a debt. Back then, cigars were only a sideline for Swisher and his four sons, just one of many products that they hawked across the Midwest for the "rolling stores" or wagons. Today, Swisher International, Inc. is a leader in the tobacco business, accounting for one-third of the United States' cigar sales and is America's largest cigar exporter.[1] Much of their sales come from consumers looking to empty the contents of the cigar and refill them with Marijuana as "blunts."[citation needed]

Swisher Sweets were introduced in 1958.
