Similar to dutches, Phillies are an old-school favorite for several reasons. They're easy to slice open and roll, and they're less harsh than wraps containing actual tobacco leaf. The original flavor is neutral and pleasant, but they're also available in fun flavors like strawberry and chocolate (in some states).
Phillies are the no-BS wrap for stoners who want a straightforward smoking experience. I learned how to roll blunts using Swisher Sweets because, above all else, they are really easy to roll. I fondly remember cracking open a Tropical Fusion cigarillo, filling it with a laughably small amount of bud, and sealing it up with a feeling of accomplishment. They have an insane amount of flavor options, or you can always stick to the unflavored red Swishers if you're not interested in lighting up a Boozy Mango or Banana Smash blunt. Widely known for their delicious rolling papers, Juicy Jay's also makes wraps designed for the full blunt experience without the tobacco. They roll and burn similarly to your average cigarillo, but they taste exactly like the flavor on the label. Their flavors include Black N' Blueberry, Mango Papaya, and Strawberry Fields, all of which will add a nice fruity kick to your favorite bud. King Palm makes pre-rolled wraps made from slow-burning palm leaves. They're chemical-free, glue-free, and come with a corn husk filter which helps prevent plant matter from getting in your mouth. They taste mild and natural thanks to the lack of artificial flavoring, plus they don't harm the environment.
According to their website, the leaves cut from the tree for King Palms grow back quickly and the corn husk filter is completely biodegradable. If you love that nicotine head rush after smoking a blunt, Entourage has got you covered. Each pack contains two wraps that are made of a homogenized binder like a standard cigarillo, plus an attached natural leaf that adds a second layer to your blunt. This wrap is very wide and fits a ton of bud, making it a fantastic choice for a big smoke sesh. They also burn slowly and come in smooth, creamy flavors like Pink Vanilla. The best and worst blunt wrappers: a definitive (and completely subjective) ranking. The result of my experiment is a completely subjective ranking of blunt wraps from best to worst. Swisher Sweets are the perfect cigarillo and anyone who disagrees can see me in the front yard. They burn properly, they’re rarely stale, and you can get them at any gas station on any corner. Those are the three most important qualities when it comes to scooping sticks. Acid wraps are dope because they’re made of natural leaf. I like these because you can taste the cannabis more when you smoke. They’re a tiny bit tougher to roll just because they don’t stick together as easily, but outside of that, they’re quality. Dutch Masters surprised me because I’d never tried them before. At first I wasn’t sure because they hit a little weird, but I found myself going back for another pack of these a few days later. When smoking them, more air flies through to the point that you aren’t sure if you’re even getting any smoke. I mean, if we haaaave to… (Courtesy of Zig Zag) White Owls. White Owls used to be the shit, but they began to disappoint over time. I still appreciate one every now and then, but I no longer compare them favorably to Swisher Sweets. It’s like in 2009 when Chris Paul and Deron Williams were the arguments for Best PG in the NBA, but now you look back like “Lol, what the hell was wrong with me?” Still a good stick, though. Zig Zag Cigarillos aren’t all the way terrible, but I wouldn’t get them again. Plus, in my opinion, they get stale quicker because I had to buy two packs to finally get a smokeable one. You can’t toss one around in a session and have any conversation, because every second it’s just buuuurning through the greens. I hate the texture, I hate the way they burn, I hate everything about them. Pull one out of the package and the wrap feels way too moist for my liking. The only plus is that it comes with that straw, which can be used for packing purposes. They don’t stay lit, and they’re hard as hell to roll because they won’t stick.
I don’t respect the fact that I’m not sure if Game is the Garcia Y Vega brand that used to be at 7-Eleven but has since disappeared. I feel like they are because they’re exactly the same, but I can’t respect needing a Google search for the answer. My little cousin told me they’re his favorite and right then I should’ve known better. Google Appears to Mix Strain Ratings With Movie Reviews for ‘Pineapple Express’ Film. Right now there’s someone screaming how Backwoods are actually the best. Okay, I’m sorry, they didn’t deserve that but I’m willing to stand on this hill for as long as it takes. These things weren’t as hard to roll as I anticipated, but that heavy-ass cigar hit that comes with them is dumb as hell. I scooped at a random Valero on my way back from a road trip and was like hmm…I remember my uncles used to smoke big-ass Optimo cigars when I was a kid, but I don’t remember seeing them in cigarillo form. So I bought them, and honestly, the next time I pass that gas station I plan on stopping and asking for my money back.
It might not be soon, but when the time comes, they will pay what they owe.
