Lucky Strike Original Product Information

Lucky Strike is rich in heritage and one of the world’s best-known brands. It was introduced in 1871 as a cut-plug chewing tobacco by the R. A. Patterson Tobacco Company of Richmond, Virginia, U.S.A.. Patterson Tobacco was acquired by the American Tobacco Company in 1905, which introduced Lucky Strike as a regular-sized (70 mm), non-filtered, American blend cigarette in 1916 in an attempt to compete with the success of R. J. Reynolds’ Camel brand. Its distinctive red-on-green bullseye design was created by famous industrial designer Raymond Loewy, the man who also designed the Campbell’s Soup label, as well as the logos for Exxon Oil, Shell Oil, and Coca-Cola. The Lucky Strike logo would later become a prominent fixture in pop-era artist Ray Johnson's collages.

In 1917, the brand started using the slogan "It's Toasted", meant to inform consumers about the manufacturing method in which the tobacco is toasted rather than sun-dried, giving Luckies a unique and distinctive flavour. The message "L.S./M.F.T." ("Lucky Strike means fine tobacco") was introduced on the package in the same year.

Lucky Strikes were popular back in the day; the position of best-selling cigarette in the United States see-sawed between Luckies and Camels from the 1920s through the mid-1950s, when American Tobacco’s Pall Mall took second spot. American Tobacco began manufacturing Luckies in filter versions in the late 1960s, though they didn’t have staying power. In 1978, the export rights to Luckies were sold to Brown & Williamson Tobacco, which would end up buying the American Tobacco Company outright in 1994.

While Lucky Strikes have not retained their popularity in their original market, they are still sold and manufactured throughout the world, including Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Chile, Finland, France, Germany, Honduras, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Spain, Thailand, and the United Kingdom.

"I'm used to the US non-filtered blend of Lucky Strikes. I bought these from this site and while they are not quite what I'm used to they are still a good smoke. Even when Luckies were available filtered in the US I bet the blend was different than the unfiltered original; perhaps these are exactly the same as the filtered US version. Thank God they are non-FSC! At any rate, for $23.50 you can't go wrong. I'll be ordering them again."
