It would’ve been one of the stories of the year for smokers if it wasn’t for the distraction of the COVID-19 pandemic. But believe it or not, it was only about three months ago that the sale of menthol cigarettes – including capsule, dual and click products – was banned in the UK.
More specifically, it was 20th May this year when the legislation for the ban came into force across the UK and EU.
However, with the coronavirus having understandably recently hogged the limelight, headlines and people’s attentions, it’s understandable that according to new research, awareness of the change remains low among the British public.
Only about half of you apparently know about it
The survey of 2,000 consumers reported by multiple outlets found that only just over half (54%) of people were actually aware of the legislation banishing menthol cigarettes from stores.
Of those who did know about the ban, a third of them learnt about it two to three months before it was imposed, most frequently by word of mouth. But 18% said they did not find out about it until after its introduction.
As for the respondents’ opinions of the ban, it seems that they’re generally positive about it, three months on. 44% of them even reckoned it should have been introduced sooner.
But if you’re mad for menthol...
...the menthol cigarette ban may have been far from good news for you these past few months.
It’s just as well, then, that here at £1 Vape, we enable those who may be switching from smoking to vaping for the good of their health, to also shop for fresh mint & menthol e-liquids from an extensive range.
But it’s not just the broadness of our selection of menthol and mint e-juices – from the fabulously cooling Ice Menthol, right through to the luscious and juicy Cherry Menthol and the strong and distinctive Peppermint – that gives you ample reason to buy from us.
That’s because we also combine quality and price, our 10ml e-liquids being British-made to ISO 9001 Quality Standards in an ISO Class 7 clean room, and yet also being priced – as our name suggests – at just £1 each.
