"Much better options out there"
Inexpensive, yes. But good smokes? No. I don't care at all for the sweetness added to the wrapper. The flavor isn't great, but it's not terrible, and I dislike the sugary tip so much that it ruins the experience for me. I will say that they are nicely and consistently constructed, though I don't like the punched (rather than cut) end. For about the same price, you can get La Aurora Principes, which are a much MUCH better cigar. There are other good alternatives too in about the same size and price range. I'll keep the rest of my box for when I'm drunk or desperate, but it'll take me a while to burn through the ones I've got.

"Decent, but about as low as anyone should go."
Phillies are, in my opinion, about as low on the cigar totem pole as you can get and still get a halfway decent smoke. The trick with Phillies though is that really only their flavored ones are worth anything. They make for good casual smokes and the flavoring is probably some of the best in the market, so you get an even tasting smoke and the burning actually smells pretty pleasant. Even for convenience store smokes, you can buy better, but if you must get a cheap cigar, Phillies might as well be the one you pick.

"Good machine made cigars"
Love the Coconut ones, smoke them all the time. I have a humidor full of more expensive stuff but find the Phillies Blunts smoke easy and suit me fine.

"reminiscent of old havana....."
not since cohiba has a cigar been so capable of capturing pre embargo smoking pleasure! piloto cubano, sawdust, and habano seed long fillers are meticulously wrapped in a mix of 10 yr. old cameroon and recycled manilla envelopes by phillies own cuban trained torcedores in a state of the art plantaion in metro pennsylvania. a great stick for the beginner or the seasoned afficianado who is craving a more complex smoke.

"Bottom of the barrel"
I used to smoke these in college and could never make through more than half of one. I think you'd be better off smoking the discarded ends of premium cigars than these nasty sticks.

"Gives cigars a bad name"
ok... So I'm concerned someone will smoke a Phyllies Blunt and think it is a "real" cigar. Not so. Phyllies, as the price indicates, is a cheap brand of tobacco. Do not expect them to taste good. Ashy and terrible. Although the previous comments about them making good weed smoking implements is right. Get one, throw away the inside tobacco, and replace with weed. Only then is a Phyllies Blunt tolerable.

"Excellent choice for the infrequent smoker"
I chose this cigar mainly because of the name and being a Phillies baseball fan. I am an infrequent smoker, about once a month, as of late. This is a great, mild smoke, that I can handle and the taste is great. An extremely great taste, that won't cost you a lot of money, and a strength you can handle when you are not a frequent smoker. Other cigars I have tried actually would make me sick since I am not used to it. And at the low cost if they sit around and go bad, there is no harm done. I am on my first Phillies pack, so I never had any go bad, but I have had others that I have forgotten about, spent a few dollars on, and when I had the thought to smoke it, it had gone bad. The manufactured wrapper however, will give away that you are smoking a low cost cigar, if you are trying to look cool, but for me, I do not care.

This is just about the worst cigar I have ever smoked. If you were even thinking about buying Phillies Blunts then you should just go die. Unless you are goin to use them to smoke weeeeeeed!!!!!!!!!!
