New Insights into Flavored Tobacco Product Use Among Youth Tobacco Users

A national survey data revealed that self-reported use of flavored tobacco products by middle and high school students decreased from 2014 to 2016 but climbed back up in 2017.

Flavored non-cigarette tobacco products are widely available in the U.S. This study examined changes in self-reported use of flavored tobacco products by youth who use tobacco. The analysis included more than 78,0000 students from a combined 2014 to 2017 national school-based annual survey.


While the use of flavored tobacco products by those who use tobacco decreased from 69.4 percent in 2014 to 57.7 percent in 2016, it increased again to 63.6 percent between 2016-2017 and much of that appears due to flavor use in electronic cigarettes.
