For Cigar-Loving Dogs, Arango Cigar Co. Now Distributing Chewgars Rawhide Dog Chews
Arango Cigar Co., has been named exclusive tobacco-trade distributor for Chewgars® cigar-shaped, rawhide dog chews, produced by Flora & Hurd, Inc. Arango has been distributing the cigar-shaped chews to tobacco retailers for several years, on a non-exclusive basis.
Hand-rolled Chewgars average 6” x 60 ring gauge, are made of pesticide-free U.S.-tanned rawhide, and come in beef, chicken, and liver blends. They are presented 20 to a cigar-style box. Clever branding on box and cigar band features a photo of Jack, the company’s Samoyed spokesdog, enjoying a “smoke.”
Chewgars have enjoyed wide appeal among dog lovers since their 2003 debut. They have been sold through diverse national distribution channels, as well as direct through tobacco retailers. Michael Gold, Arango’s president, comments by saying, “Historically, we have seen surprisingly healthy sales of Chewgars. We attribute this to their cigar-box graphics, which stand out at tobacconists, contrasting with the other tobacco products.” Single-stick suggested retail pricing for Chewgars is $2.50. Chewgars are available at tobacco retailers nationwide.
