Latest Smoker Research Just In:
MERIT undisputed victor over leading high tars in tests comparing taste and tar level.

Smokers Prefer Merit 3 To 1!

Smokers find the taste of low tar MERIT matches that of high tar cigarettes.

New taste-test results prove it.
Proof: A significant majority of smokers rated MERIT taste as good as - or better than - leading high tar brands. Even cigarettes having twice the tar!
Proof: Of the 95% stating a preference when tar levels were revealed, 3 out of 4 smokers chose the MERIT low tar/good taste combination over high tar leaders.
It's clearer than ever: MERIT delivers a winning combination of taste and low tar that seems to be attracting more and more smokers every day.
