Are you a fan of Backwoods blunts? You may have seen dope flavors like grape on the internet but never in-store. That’s because there are several discontinued backwoods flavors you won’t find easily in the United States. Some of the discontinued flavors can still be found in other countries, creating a market for rare Backwoods in the states.
Discontinued Backwoods Flavors
One of the most sought after discontinued Backwoods flavors is the banana cigars. You’ll have to get them from England, Italy, or other European countries that still carry them. We’ve seen packs of banana Backwoods with “Smoking Kills” written in Italian, Romanian, and English from when they were available in North America. You’ll have to look for a source overseas or find someone who hoarded a pack.
Another one of the few fruity discontinued Backwood flavors to ever exist: grape. These were once available in Canada in the U.S. but now you’ll have to look in the same places you’d find the banana ones. Europe is your best bet.
Americans used to be able to get ice wine backwoods in Canada but they’re no longer available there either because of bans on menthol and flavored tobacco products. We’re not sure if these were released outside of North America so what’s left might just be what Canadians haven’t smoked yet.
For some time Americans were getting their rare Backwoods from Canada. That may still be possible but they became banned in certain parts of Canada. Ontario and many other parts of Canada have banned flavored tobacco products that might be appealing to children. So you’ll have to look to the U.K. and other European countries for a shot at some Vanilla Backwoods.
One of the less heard of backwoods, the white rum, is not available in the United States but we’ve spotted a few printed with French text. So they may be available in France but don’t book your flight just yet. They may be from when they were available in Canada since French is commonly used there. Unfortunately, we’re not sure where else you can get them.
Wild Rum Backwoods have been discontinued in the United States. There are other alcohol based flavors like the limited edition Honey Bourbon. However, you can still find the wild rum Backwoods outside of the country. In fact, you can still get them in many European countries. There are a couple of German websites selling them online but we’re not sure how reliable they are.
There’s definitely a demand for these discontinued Backwoods and blunt smokers across the nation await their return. Until then you’ll have to look across the globe if you want to collect the rarest Backwoods flavors. If you’re planning a trip to Europe make sure you stock up on some because they’re like gold back here. If you’re lucky enough to find any in the U.S. they’re 3 to 4 times the price of regular backwoods. Connoisseurs fortunate enough to come across grape or banana ‘woods like to fill them with appropriate strains like Grape God or Banana OG.
