I recently got introduced to the amzing world of cigars because of my job, gas station clerk, we sell these little Backwoods Wild "n" Mild. I am about to be going on a weekend trip where i plan to enjoy my time there with a few good smokes. I am looking for cigars with similar flavor profiles as that in the Backwoods honey berry or sweet aromatic. I would prefer they cost less than 10$ a cigar, but all suggestions are welcome.

I believe brand Acid makes similar cigars at that price point.

Yeah, Drew Estates ACID line, or their "Naturals" line would probably be your best bet.

There should also be a category for "Flavored" or "Infused" cigars on most major etailer's websites (Famous Smoke Shop, Cigars International, etc.)

I have a hard time recommending Acids. I will however, suggest you try CAO Flavors, which you may find in a lot of stores, even the head-shop type. Or, order a couple Ambrosias. I think you'll find these a little more fruity and a little less perfume-y than Acids, IMHO.

What Dave said. Adam mentioned Naturals - pretty decent.

So I made a list of cigars i read about that might fit what I'm looking for, has anyone here tried; Rum Runner Buccaneer, Finck's Rum and Honey, Texas Sweets China Grove, Artuo Fuente Don Carlos, Artuo Fuente Hemingway, Rum Dip by Blue Mountain? If so what are your thoughts on them?

The Fuentes are very high quality handmade stogies and the others are probably less expensive machine cigars. So, I guess you're covering the waterfront...

Can't tell you much about the flavored cigars on that list, but the two Fuente cigars you mention are excellent cigars with generally very good construction. They might cost a bit more than the other ones you listed because they are hand made and utilize long filler tobacco, but their MSRP is actually pretty reasonable and when you take into account their quality, they are a really good deal.

Here are some reviews on the Fuente cigars that you mentioned:
