The Phillies cigar is immortalized in Edward Hopper‘s painting, Nighthawks, in which a diner is topped by a board containing an ad for Phillies along with an illustration of a cigar.

Phillies Blunt

A Phillies Blunt, often Phillie Blunt or simply blunt, is a popular name for a particular size of Phillies cigars, marketed as “Blunts”, which are commonly sold at convenience stores and gas stations, as well as specialized smoke shops. Recently, this name has come to refer to all “marijuana cigars“. An inexpensive cigar with a tough wrapper, it is often emptied and re-rolled with other smoking mixtures, the most common being marijuana. With its variety of flavors, a new market for ‘blunt wraps‘, a prepared tobacco leaf paper similar to rolling papers, were introduced. Phillies Blunt cigars are available in several flavors, including banana, berry, chocolate aroma, coconut, coffee, cognac, greene de menthe, honey, mango, peach, pina colada, sambuca, sour apple, strawberry, sweet vanilla, sugar, tequila, watermelon, grape, and cinnamon. Barrel O’ Blunt cigars are Phillies Blunts packaged in 50-pack “barrels”. Phillies cigars also produces Mini Blunts.
