Unfortunately the only 2 stores I've found that do this (which I think are the same mob) don't have a great range of flavours.
What's pissed me off even more is that I also had 6 boxes of Exoticas in the same order as well as a new Razan hose which all should have arrived last Friday and here I am sitting without a coal in sight and the nearest place that sells coals (if you can call them that bloody Roland QL's) is at least 5 hours drive away making it a 10 hour return drive and $70 trip which I refuse to do for Rolands.

Haha you would do that for exoticas? I sure wouldnt...
