Default Nahkla sweet melon 50g for 20$!!!!

Well today I went to a store in town who sells Nahkla. They only had 50g boxes and sold them 18.99$ plus tax! so came up to 21$!!!! i mean....on the net they are like 3$ each! what a disapointment.... I wasnt to fond of the taste either... its smelled great but had a really hard time with heat management when i actually got good clouds from it, was when i put on a wind cover. then it got harsh.... so all in all.. a great waste of 20$ might be the bowl im using which is a regular ceramic bowl. or the coals which are some unknown brand.... could it be that the shisha was too old? anywho, if anyone can help that would be great... i know most will say im nuts for paying so much, but i really wanted to try it tonight...

Oh wow I actually heard about the tea leaf idea during lunch today. How well does that work? I'm guessing they also add sugars/honey or something into them?

that is seriously a sin to charge that much for such a small amount...that would be $100- for a 250g box...

If we get the universal health care like Hope and Change guy wants, we will see prices like this as well. The SCHIP bill is only the first small wave of warning to an approaching tidal wave. Universal health care = insane tobacco prices.

That's bullshit. I get Nahkla for free whenever I buy stuff from my shop! It's pretty awesome. Their prices are a little higher. A 100g tin of Starbuzz costs 12.00... It's only 10 plus tax on the net, but it's worth it.

That's actually a sweet deal if you get free Nakhla. As for sweet melon being $20, at least it's a good flavor.

Yep man I fell your pain. On the south shore, it's around $16 for a 50g of Nakhla. I've been importing from the US for a while now and no trouble. One day the customs are gonna bust me, but then I'll just say F^%k you and move to cali

Guys, the prices that u pay in the US & Canada are unbelievably high. I mean even with the taxes and shipping, it shouldn't be that high. It is like 1000% more than the Middel East. At the same time, you can buy other products such as food and tea and u pay the same price that u pay in the Middel East. Somthing is wrong and I blame hookah vendors for that.

the middle east manuf. know that our demand is high here... i know mark up is high... but i blame taxes as well. Excise tax in ohio is 17% so i get a product for say.. I get 10 items for 100 bucks... then i have to add on $17 bucks to make up the tax... so its 117. 117/10= 11.70... now I have to add a markup and include shipping. so your looking at 14-18 bucks depending on the product.

Here's an expansion of the new taxes going into effect April 1st nationwide: (copied and pasted from a site) I'm assuming shisha falls under the category of pipe tobacco.

The Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) was passed into law by President Obama on Feb. 4, 2009. This is a Federal Law and affects the entire United States. The increases are listed below. These increases will take effect on April 1, 2009 at. (not an April fools joke either). We will do our best to accomodate all orders that come in the last few weeks of March. I will give you more info. as it becomes available.
Cigarettes: $6.20 More Per Carton
Large Cigars: Up to $.40 More Per Large Cigar
Little Cigars: $9.70 More Per Carton
Pipe Tobacco: $1.73 More Per Pound
RYO/MYO Tobacco: $23.68 More Per Pound (not a Typo)
Chewing Tobacco: $.31 More Per Pound
Snuff: $.93 More Per Pound
