Re: is money the only factor or not?
For most. price is going to be a factor. Considering SB is 4x the price of nakhla, you gotta figure someone could get a 1000g of nakhla for the price of one tin of SB.
Personally, I don't see where the buzz about nakhla came from. The stuff was completely gross to me. I don't know if it's one of those recent trends or what. Honestly, with the price of SB, I only managed to get to try a few. I hadn't managed to find any flavors that were horrible which is more then I could say with nakhla. If you factor in the price though, there's no way I could say it's 4x better.
What I can say is that the tobacco used is of a better quality. On the other hand though, they use massive amounts of coloring. Then again a lot of brands do.
