In the past 15 years, there has been a decline in the consumption of cigarettes due to awareness of disease. Since the cigarette companies were not making enough money, they decided to target children and teenagers through subliminal messaging.

If you were to look at a pack of 'Five' or 'Stride' gum, you would notice something odd about them.
They are made to resemble a pack of cigarettes. This is because companies because cigarette companies bought out the gum companies and started to change the packaging to subliminally encourage gum users to buy more cigarettes.

Also, smoking companies have bought out make-up companies and changed the way they look as well. You can find lip stick that you 'flick' open as if it were a lighter.

Post here if you can think of anymore products that have changed to help cigarette companies or companies of the same nature.
