Are menthol cigarettes being banned?
Menthol cigarettes and other flavoured tobacco products are due to be banned in the UK in May 2020.
Heated tobacco is exempt from the ban and so HEETS Turquoise and HEETS Blue will still be available to purchase both online and in stores.
What is the menthol ban?
The menthol ban comes from the EU Tobacco Products Directive (TPD), banning all cigarettes with a “characterising flavour” other than tobacco1. As menthol cigarettes are the most popular flavoured tobacco products, the new regulation has been dubbed the “menthol ban.”
