Licky Strikes is a type of candy cigarette.
There was a rumor at Springfield Elementary, that if someone pressed "E8" on the vending machine, he would get an electric shock and die. After Bart and Milhouse tested it, a box of Licky Strikes fell out. Nelson took it and noticed that it is a box of candy cigarette. Martin told him that they were discontinued because they were thought to encourage impressionable children to smoke. However, Nelson didn't believe it and took a stick, using it like a real cigarette, and also gave one to Sophie. Nelson then became addicted to the candy cigarettes and later he used a Twix like a cigar.
