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


A cigar company was given to David Swisher in 1856. Swisher Sweets were introduced in 1957.

Use in cannabis culture[edit]

Although Swisher Sweets are a tobacco product, it is estimated that as many as three-fourths of all Swisher Sweets bought are not used as intended. Instead, many people buy them as "blunt wraps". Emptying a Swisher Sweet or other cigar of tobacco and refilling it with cannabis is known as rolling a "blunt". The explosion of the cannabis industry in the United States since the mid-2000s has more than likely contributed to Swisher Sweets being the top-selling cigar in America.[1]

This was highlighted in an episode of the TV show Atlanta "Atlanta (TV Series)" with a parody of a Swisher Sweets commercial where several customers are seen purchasing the cigarillos for use in rolling blunts.[2]
