Tijuana Smalls are a brand of flavored cigarette that was produced after a prohibition on advertising cigarettes on television in the United States was signed into law by President Richard Nixon in 1970. They were advertised as "Little Cigars". The brand's catchy jingle contained the lyrics, "Tijuana Smalls, ten for the road baby, for you maybe, you know who you are, you know who you are." (Those revised lyrics were written by Susan Dias Karnovsky.)

This brand of cigarettes was also mentioned in the chorus of Primus song "Shake Hands with Beef" on their Brown Album.

In the mid-1970s, "Wacky Packages" used a parody called "Tijuana Smells" among its stickers.
