Just look for any brand whose package is mostly green...as that is the almost universal packaging for menthol.

Most common ones (at least here in the south) are Esse's (green ones, not the blue ones), Kent's, and Chinese brand 520's (though these are harder to find sometimes). Some super strong menthols are Marlboro Black Menthol's. The 2 main types are the blue and black ones with the little pop-able capsule from HK which are pretty expensive, or the green and black ones (majority imported from Vietnam so you generally have to ask them and they'll bring it out from under the desk). I mostly smoke these, 12rmb a pack. Pretty badass, crackle every now and then..

If you're in a small city/countryside it's going to be difficult. Popular cities no problem.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
