United Cigars is adding to its holiday Firecracker collaborations with the Elote Firecracker with Rojas Cigars for Cinco De Mayo 2023. Elote (E-Lo-Tay) is a famous Mexican dish more commonly known as street corn. The 3.5 x 50 Firecracker ($8) features an Ecuadorian wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and filler. It comes in 16-count boxes. It is produced at Tabacalera Flor de San Luis
The FIrecracker debuted in 2007, with a long piece of tobacco at the head shaped like a fuse. After a few years on the market, the limited release Firecrackers came to life as United Cigars collaborated with a new manufacturer every year to create a 4th of July cigar.
“Worlds collided when I first smoked the Street Taco from Rojas,” Director of Operations for United Cigars, Oliver Nivaud said in a press release. “My love of street tacos is well known, and the Elote Firecracker now completes my cravings as a smokable antojito.”
The Elote Firecracker will begin shipping to retailers April 17th. With a production limited to 3,200 cigars, these 200 boxes will be allocated to United Firecracker Retailers.
