Default WHY DO PEOPLE SMOKE FANTASIA?

I don't get it. Is there some sort of magical way of packing this tobacco that I haven't discovered yet? I keep hearing people who swear by Fantasia but none of their flavors are that good. Plus I keep getting this crazy chemical taste out of it deep into a session. Am I missing something?

Are you talking about people you know swearing Fantasia is good or people here? Because here, the general consensus of Fantasia is pretty negative.

I will admit that Fantasia does have some good flavors, but most of their flavors have a strong undertone of shampoo.

It's the heavy amount of glycerine in Fantasia that gives it the soap taste. I admit I use to like Fantasia, incredible is actually an 'ok' flavor. After trying cherry cola and in tasting solely like soap, all the flavors started getting that hint of soap flavor too. So i stopped smoking it. Most people end up starting with it because almost all local shops carrie it.

Fantasia is intriguing to me.

The only flavor I LOVE is Candy Cane. Its great. Everything else is Meh. They haven't been sending the stuff as juicy as they used too(At least their newer flavors.) It hasn't tasted soapy from the glycerin. However It has revealed how bad their actual tobacco is. I got a free 200g screwdriver and all of the flavor over the entire bowl was gone in 45 minutes in a medium clay egyptian bowl. Same with a vortex bowl. It would have been a KILLER flavor otherwise. Tasted and smelled exactly like the black full throttle energy drink.


I will always love fantasia Candy Cane however. But overall they just miss the mark.

Seems to me though fantasia needs quite a bit air to breath so I fluff pack it to the rim and then with my tooth pick play around with it so that it is below the rim, I try my best not to push it down. I am then very careful with heat, I burnt my first bowl to crap because I used 4 CN's like I would with AF, with fantasia I use three and start the bowl with them half on / half off. For about 5 mins this produces whispy smoke, I then put the coals on all the way and it smokes good (wind cover as needed) I've had some nice flavours and some horrible ones, and the nice ones flavour only last for 40 min.

There's some good flavors from fantasia. I do like rainbow burst, surfer, gingerbread, and a few others. But i started with and only smoked fantasia/starbuzz for almost two years, so maybe i just built it up how good it was/is. I haven't really smoked much fantasia since i ventured out to trying (and loving) AF, Nak, Fumari, ect... Never once had a soapy taste, but perhaps i did and just never really noticed it? lol, could of happened.

i like some of the fantasia flavors. 4 play,dragons breathe,rainbow burst, raspberry lemonade, ace of spades,incredible hulk. i usually use a phunnel bowl and will pack the shisha up to the middle hole then pack the shisha towards the center more tightly. i then double wrap aluminum foil. i will put three coals on the edge in a triangle shape in three different corners. let the bowl sit for 5 minutes before trying to start it up because the bowl needs to heat up as well as the shisha. then lightly put it on a vacuum or hit it and it should start up good.

I've only had a few flavors and didn't have a problem with them. The triple apple and million dollar flavor are pretty good. I'd prefer nak over it 99.9% of the time but I won't complain if it was my only option.
It's just so expensive.

We've tried three different Fantasia flavors here: Cotton Candy, Pink Lemonade, and Diablo. When they all tasted alike (mostly like nothing) we didn't order it again. We'd rather smoke pretty much anything else.
