History's Dumpster = GLORIOUS trash! Kitsch, music, fashion, food, history, ephemera, and other memorable and forgotten, famous and infamous pop culture junk and oddities of yesterday and today. Saved from the landfill of time...
Apparently, the name of the brand was a play on the old stereotype that Scotsmen had the reputation for being cheap, hence the name "Scotch Buy" for a line of "cheap" product. They weren't bad, but I can't imagine how those cigarettes tasted, or like from some of those other low-end brands I used to see back in the '80s, like Parade or Rainbow.
Oh wow. I remember visiting a friend's aunt who smoked this brand! She coughed and coughed and coughed and lit up another one.
And the slogan, IIRC for the brand was, "It ain't fancy but it sure is good!"
