We’ve all heard the argument that e-cigs and vaping are targeted towards children because they have flavors like cotton candy and bubble gum. I don’t believe that argument but it doesn’t help our case when some e-juice manufacturers are using the actual names of candy products.
Owners of brands geared toward children of all ages are battling to keep notable names like Thin Mint, Tootsie Roll and Cinnamon Toast Crunch off the flavored nicotine used in electronic cigarettes.
General Mills Inc., the Girl Scouts of the USA and Tootsie Roll Industries Inc. are among several companies that have sent cease-and-desist letters to makers of the liquid nicotine demanding they stop using the brands and may take further legal action if necessary.
Let me speak for all vapers everywhere to the makers of e-juices with these trademark infringing names. YOU’RE NOT HELPING!
You’re just giving the ill-informed anti-vaping zealots more ammunition for their ignorance guns. Change the names dumbasses.
