Wow, if it's true I'll be stocking up on some Nakhla for sure... Wouldn't be surprised if it was owned by one of Mubarak's relatives though, there was so much corruption in N. Africa

I was thinking about this today and lets consider the facts here. This site is run by Nick (former member here). Nick also made the blog post in question. Nick wasnt exactly known for bullshitting to be fair to him and he did indeed get in contact with lots of people in the industry.

It is entirely possible this is true as far as him repeating what he was told by the distributor. So now lets consider if what the distributor says is true, that would suck but its possible its true or not even if Nick was told so.

It is also possible the factory was not owned by Nakhla and it is that which has been taken over and not the company Nakhla, hopefully it will have no affect on Nakhla.

It could also be that the distributor was telling a porky to get everyone to panic and buy up all the DA, Sweet Melon and Mizo in the country.

Whatever is the case I imagine that even as its been taken over they will probably carry on producing as it is a truly global company, its not as big as Coke or McDonalds but global none-the-less. Whoever has taken over it (in theory) would be mad to not keep it up and running.

Either way yeah this has been done before, hopefully nothing comes of it.

I for one am glad that this was reposted or I would've never seen it.
Mainly because I wouldn't have just searched for it randomly, I rarely think "hmm, I wonder if there is a 'news' report about Nakhla being shut down by the government?".

Just saying though, thanks OP for posting the website!
and I surely hope it doesn't mean they will close because I've never tried mizo!

Well better get on it and order some Mizo haha.

I just can't imagine it closing down, but we'll have to wait and see.

Too bad The Egyptian hasn't been active lately, otherwise he might be able to provide us with more insight.

Awh hell no. Need to stock up on Nakhla then if this is true. I just got 750g of Nak DA in the mail today though.

Anyway, the website is still up and there's no news about it other than that site so I wouldnt take this too seriously, yet..

Then go ahead and leave yourself... This forum would be dead as hell if no one asked questions that they could possibly fine by searching.

I'm interested to hear if this actually is true, and if so, what happens.

someone didn't take his nappy time today


as for the thread.. the short answer is, it is probably not true. there would be more news than one link to one site, and Egypt wouldn't make such a rash profit-destroying decision like that for no reason. Nakhla is one of the biggest exporters in Egypt, and surely makes them some money. They do not have affiliation with Mubarak.

Also guys to the OP you are not allowed to post links to other forums related to hookah on here that's one of the rules. We have already gone over this and its been taken care of.

Move along, move along...

Fact or Fiction?

While I do not know if the Nakhla factory closed, is closing, or is merely some rumor, but what I can tell you is that the availability of this product seems to be slowly diminishing in the United States Marketplace. But Why? We all know the demand is there... It would be quite ironic following the logic of supply and demand for that particular brand's factory to be closing.

Yes, Nakhla is becoming scarce to get, so be aware that some vendors/distributors may, to their advantage, price the product at a higher than normal rate.

The range for Nakhla is typically between $7.50 and $9, not to mention all of the additional incentives (discounts/rewards) that are available to reduce the price even further. Take advantage of everything!

I definitely do not see the availability diminishing its actually growing locally around here and companies online are still stocking and restocking it even the new ones so the odds of it closing are so unlikely its almost impossible. Also seeing how that they make the number one flavor in the world and that people buy it by the kilo because its so amazing makes the odds shift even more there is no way that this is fact and that this is just a rumor. We have already discussed this topic and it got out of hand and we should just let this thread die like the dodo.

Could this all be a ploy by some to raise the price?

<evil supervillan voice>
They're willing to pay $15-$20 for the other sh...stuff, maybe they'll pay the same for Nakhla! BWAHAHAHAHA!

I'm stocked up pretty good on Nak atm, but that would be pretty disappointing if we lost it for a while. As long as it's not permanent then things are good, though of course it's still just speculation. I want new mizo flavors damnit!
