Ice Capsule therefore represents another important addition to the L&B Blue family, whose segment of the economy sector has soared to 21.5% since its launch last year.

“Adult smokers will enjoy the cigarette’s smooth taste and flavour, combined with the choice to instantly transform their smoking experience – while retailers can enjoy impressive Profit on Return rates of 6.30% on 19s and 6.48% on 10s respectively.”

The rrp for L&B Blue Ice Capsule King Size 19s is £6.89, and £3.78 for King Size 10s. Both are also available in pricemarked packs, while stocks last.
