That would make it 17 cents a piece.

******* Naturals: $0.19 pc.
CocoNara: $0.21 pc./$0.18 pc.(3x84pc. special)
Exotica: $0.17 pc.

Once you break it down, I don't see how people can complain about how "over priced" coco naras are.
but you have to also consiter how many coals you use per bowl. i can use 2 1/4s of exoticas but need 3 CCNs to get the same phunnel smoking the same
