Question? Difference between Soft Pack VS Hard Pack

28 Feb

YO, here is another question i can’t answer…someone help

**Couldn’t answer this**

What’s the difference between a ‘Soft Pack’ and a ‘Hard Pack’ of cigarettes???

Hard Pack

A hard pack is the usual style of paperboard packaging for store bought cigarettes, which consists of a relatively stable box. This successfully prevents the crumpling of cigarettes when kept in a person’s pocket or handbag. The flip-top hard pack cigarette case was introduced in 1955 by Philip Morris

Soft Pack

A soft pack is a box packaging made of thin paper, usually containing 20 cigarettes. Soft packs may be considered inconvenient as they rupture easily and cannot be resealed. They offer the immediate convenience of not having to open the package each time the smoker wants a cigarette. They require less physical ‘pocket space’ when fewer cigarettes remain in the pack. With American brands, cigarettes from a soft pack are usually a few millimeters longer than their hard-boxed counterparts.

If you go on Yahoo answers there are a ton of arguments !!!! This answer seemed the best out of everything…

Their is no difference, one is a lil bit longer, the hard pack dont bust up your smokes…the end…UNLESS YOU KNOW DIFFERENT THEN PLEASE COMMENT !!!
