Quick BIC Giveaway

I’ve recently posted a quick review of the BIC Flex Multi-Purpose Lighter, and it did pretty well for an all-around lighter for grilling. The nice people at BIC have also offered a giveaway of three lighters to be sent directly to the winners. It’s not a free grill or anything, but it is a very useful barbecue tool!

So here’s how the giveaway will work, and you can answer on here or on Twitter (tweet to @cmcadams):

What year was the first BIC lighter launched?

That’s easy! The first three answers win (by timestamp on the comment here or the tweet with the right answer). The winners will need to supply their name and address so that BIC can send the lighters out to you!

As of Saturday, 6/25 at 5:28 PM, all three prizes are claimed!

About Curt McAdams

I guess I'm a bit of a foodie, learning to cook from my mom, then getting obsessed with outdoor cooking, competition barbecue, bread baking and just about all things food. Lately, I've been trying to upgrade my photography skills a bit, though I still have a long way to go.


  1. The first Bic Lighters were offered in 1973!

  2. Yep, I second Kevin – 1973. I would have thought they were earlier since they have been around as long as I can remember, but I was only 6 then so….that’s about as far back as I can remember, right?

  3. Sorry, Chris… All three were already claimed! My biggest BIC memory was at a concert, with everyone waving them around.

  4. Thank you! My lighter arrived today. Thanks!

    I hope html is permitted here. If not, here’s the link:

  5. Thanks for the chance to win this, Curt! :) Just got my Bic Flex Wand in the mail today! :)
