Default Heating up FSC cigs in microwave

I heard about this idea in the past. On how heating up cigs for 30 secs in a microwave neutralizes the FSC chemicals.

I actually tried this out for myself. Except I didnt heat em up in the Newport pack. I took all of em out, and placed em on an opened-up napkin in the microwave. After they heated up, I put em back in the pack.

I believe if you heat em up in the pack, you gotta remove the silver foil inside of the pack before heating. When I removed the foil, a tiny piece of it was left in the pack. I didnt take my chances of putting the pack in the wave cause of the tiny foil.

After the cigs heated uo, I noticed they smelled a lot more like the way unlit Newports smelled in the non-FSC days. They smelled like all tobacco instead, in other words.

As far as the taste goes, they still taste like Newport box 100s. I still tasted more tobacco than the actual mint. (Of course, some menthol brands have a lot more mint flavor on drags. Such as Salems and VS/BH menthols)

The only negative thing I notice so far is the Newports taste a lil weaker after the cigs are heated up. They may taste like a Newport. But they also feel less stronger than a normal FSC Newport.

Maybe heating up FSC cigs to make em taste like non-FSCs also lowers their tar/nic levels. (Maybe the heat "kills" the nicotine in em?)

The FSC Newports don't bother me anyway. They taste just like the non-FSC Newports of the past. Some smokers on the net agree Newports are the FSCs that come the closest to tasting like an actual cig.

I keep my cartons in the freezer to keep em fresh for a long time. Maybe freezing em neutralizes the chemicals as well.

Gonna have to try this. Smoking cigs with FSC just kills the flavor.

If all else fails put some syrup on em and eat them for breakfest!!
