Yesterday, Blumenthal was quoted as saying:
“Most of the smokers who use e-cigarettes as devices to stop smoking prefer the tobacco flavored cigarettes, not the candy flavored,” he says. “The candy flavors are designed to appeal to children and people who are not smoking now.”
“There is no evidence to support that claim. He just made it up,” retorts Carl V. Phillips, scientific director of the grass-roots lobbying group Consumer Advocates for Smoke-free Alternatives Association (CASAA).
In a recent article, Greg Conley said:
Two surveys of thousands of adult e-cigarette users, the vast majority of whom were ex-smokers, have been released in the past year that discussed flavor choice. Both surveys found that fruit flavors were the most popular. The most recent study demonstrated that approximately two-thirds of the respondents were primarily using a flavor that was neither tobacco nor menthol. Clearly, just as there is an adult market for flavored vodka and schnapps, there is also an adult market for flavored e-cigarettes
