Smile Kind of a good theory...

So a few months back...I was talking to one of these hookah shop owners near my house.

We got into a convo about Double Apple and why do most apple flavored shishas have licorice in them.

He started saying that back then.. Anise (double apple) flavored shisha was the only flavored shisha that was available a few decades ago (besides regular unflavored shisha that is).

It explains a lot...Like why Nakhla's Double Apple is one of the most popular shishas and why they sell kilos and kilos of this stuff around the world. If this "theory" is true, then that mean DA has been around for so long that its become an all time favorite for many people, especially those who only had this flavored shisha available.

Also, almost every brand has some double apple shisha. My guess is that they want to attract the "old crowd", the ones who have been smoking this flavor for so long.

Interesting eh? I know that there is no info online to confirm this but it seems like a good theory, no?

I have two boxes of Nakhla double apple and notice the anise is stronger with the older pack. The fresh box is not as overwhelming and the apple can be smelled/tasted easier.

This is true.

It still doesn't change the fact it sucks, though.

I guess its cuz its licorice with a very mild undertone of apples? eh dude I have no idea

I'm guessing reg apple is normal apple shisha while the DOUBLE is licorice AND apple. Kind of weird I wish they'd just call it licorice but I guess double apple sounds more appealing to new smokers

Well yeah though Naklha calls it Two Apples; Double Apple was the first flavored tobacco for Hookah. It’s still recognized as the traditional flavor and some consider it the only legitimate flavor. A lot of people around my way, who aren’t from Brooklyn say “if it’s not double apple it’s not hookah”.

because it is a combo of both red and green apple.The anise is only one of the flavors in the DA.The apple, imo, is very much present.It's a complex flavor and shouldn't be assumed to be simply anise.

Yeah, the apple is very much there. I could live without the anise, but it's still a great smoke.

Double apple is good. don't know why people hate on the deepness of the flavor.
But it is a very interesting theory.

Yeah Nakhla's D.A is the only D.A I can actually stand because its such a good and complex flav. But, I'm never buying a full tub ever again because the anise is kinda too much after a while. But its still a good flav
