The article focuses on the flavored tobacco products that have increased the tobacco sales to a great extent. Flavors have been added to tobacco for thousands of years, and that innovation is driving sales today. While flavored tobacco is nothing new, it is enjoying a welcome renaissance by tobacco companies these days, since it is one of the few segments in the tobacco category that is experiencing increased sales. The flavored segment includes mostly cigars, smokeless tobacco and, to a smaller degree, cigarettes, since flavored cigarette production, by comparison, is very low.
