Virginia Slims Types?

I was looking around the gas station I usually get my cigarettes from, and I decided to try salems but they didn't have any. So I decided to get a pack of Virginia Slims instead, but I don't know what kinds are what, and neither did the cashier.

I bought a silver pack that has blue along the side, thinking they were menthol lights, but it seems they're regular lights. Does anyone know what colors are what for Virginia Slims? These aren't bad, but I'm in the mood for a menthol cigarette that's light.

The New Packs Can Be Confusing

Without words like "Lights" and "Ultra Lights" even clerks that are smokers aren't sure sometimes with some brands, especially less popular ones. Non smoking clerks are even more clueless than ever. I think you actually bought "VS Silver Pack" based on your description which was the old VS Ultra Lights. If you want VS Lights Menthol you need to ask for VS Gold Pack Menthol. It should be on the top and bottom of the pack. With VS, you substitute the name "Gold Pack" for "Lights" and "Silver Pack" for Ultra Lights. This is the same naming convention that is used for Marlboro Lights and Ultra Lights.

If you decide to go with Benson and Hedges, Lights are now "Luxury" and Ultra Lights "De Luxe".

With Merit, regular Merit is now Gold Pack, Merit Ultra Lights are Silver Pack and Ultima is Bronze Pack.

Parilament Lights are now "Parliament White Pack" and the full flavor "Parliament Blue Pack"

BTW - I'm not guessing on these. I found a brochure from PM for retailers someone was kind enough to post up on the internet. I wish I could remember where I found it.

Congratulations on wanting

Congratulations on wanting to try VS menthol. I smoke VS menthol 120s and absolutely love them.The top of the box is green and says Virginia slims 120-menthol gold pack. A suoer sexy cigarette to smoke. Feels so good in the throat and lungs.Keep me updated on your new sexy smoking habit.

RE: Virginia Slims Gold Pack

I remember when they were $1.10 16 yrs ago. I have been smoking VS Gold Pack all these years. I thoroughly enjoy them!!!

VS

silver packs used to be called ultra-lights
gold packs used to be called Luxury Lights-
the menthol says menthol on the pack and have green in the stripes
oh how i miss the old days lol

This helps so much, I'll

This helps so much, I'll keep it in mind.

Though just from smoking the ultra lights (too light D:) I'm not a humongous fan of the flavor. I think I'll try smooths/skylines or something along those lines when I do get another pack (not to mention they're cheaper)

not educated

this helped me a lot as well i just started smoking VS silver pack not knowing they were ultra lights cuz im not educated on cigarettes since i just started but now i want to get the gold pack since now that im reading it tastes better

awesome choice

Do you smoke the 120s? Regular or menthol. The menthol 120s feel so great in the throat and lungs.

thinking of switching

I just got my first pack of VS menthols. I might just switch from B&H menthols. I can't wait to find the VS 120 menthols. They feel and taste great. I like how fast I can smoke them. I feel like I can smoke more. Thanks all.

menthol stripe difference?

What is the difference between green stripe and blue stripe on menthol super slims?

reply to Virginia Slims Types?

When I used to steal these from my mom when I was age 11, 12, 13, I loved VS full flavor menthol 100s. I haven't smoked them since 1973-80 or so. My mMom smoked Winston 100s, VS 100s menthol, Saratoga 120s, Benson and Hedges menthol 100s, Silva Thins 100s, and others, so I had a chance to sample lots of cigarettes. I loved the VS Menthol 100s the best. But I tried Salem 100s when I needed more cigarettes than I could steal from my mom back then without her becoming suspicious. I loved them! I suggest VS Full Flavor 100s or the Salem 100s! The last 15 years I have been smoking Marlboro Menthol 100s. I love these also.

I sometimes smoke the Full

I sometimes smoke the Full flavor VS menthol, but my favorite are the VS menthol lights 120s

VS Silver/Gold Menthol 120s

I've been smoking these for over 26 years and thoroughly enjoy them. I can smoke other cigarettes but VS 120s are definitely my favorite!

120's

I am only a Menthol 120 girl. My main brand is VS120, but I also smoke at least 2 packs a week of Capri, Eve and Misty, all Menthol 120's. I started out at age 9 stealing VS Menthol 100's from the neighbor lady, and then the day VS came out with 120's, that was my brand. I have been a 120 only girl since that day.

Blair Alexis

Me too!!

Me too Blair, Me and my wife both smoke the Virginia Slims 120's for a lot of years now. Anything other is just second class compared to these very fine smokes. They are so delicious!!

Old comment, but...

lol...That's really cool. Blair being nine years old and in 3rd or 4th grade already smoking cigarettes, as other people in this website. Four, five and up already addicted to cigarettes. Being in elementary school, so small and presumably innocent, probably not cutting class to smoke, going all day without smoking, especially at that age. It's mind boggling. We were the lucky ones to be enjoying them at that young age. I, for one, am proud of myself for starting smoking that young, even though I did not know what I was doing, not knowing it would turn into a lifetime addiction. Ultimately, I am the one who took the first 'puff'.

Virginia Slims 120's rock!!

When you go to buy them, just ask for the "Virginia Slims Menthol 120's" and make sure they are the "Gold Pack"!! These are the best Menthols on the planet!! Very good with your coffee in the mornings!!

Rediscovery

I just bought a carton of full flavor regular Virginia Slims, and realized how much I missed them. OMG, they are so smooth and strong! I have never experienced so much smoke out of a slim cigarette. To me, they are a bit like B&H premiums, but in a slim style. I've smoked almost a whole pack of them already and that says a lot considering how many different brands I smoke. I can't get enough of them ... my exhales look and feel incredible! If anyone likes a lot of smoke in a sexy, slim package, I highly recommend them. Happy smoking!

I agree

It's one of three brands I regularly rotate around. There are always lots of comments about VS120s, mainly due to the sex appeal of the longer length (no argument there, but I think they're weak); however, if you want some kick in a slim, VS FF is it.

VS FF awesomeness!

I've really noticed with smoking them now that when I take a drag, the ease at which the cherry burns down is so nice! I'm able to get SO much sweet smoke with even a small two second drag its great. With my normal four to five second drags its even better. My ball snaps look so thick, my exhales are luscious, and my lungs feel fantastic! I've smoked so many of them in the past few days, I'll need another carton in no time!
