Default Star Buzz?

I am totally confused why people like Star Buzz. I've tried something like 6 -or 7 flavours and I noticed that they all have a only a moderately strong flavour and it's alwys very sweet or chemical tasting rather then a realistic one. Given that SB is pretty much the most expensive shisha on the American market I am at a total lose as to why it's so popular.

I like it cause i hate buzzes. Yuck. And i get it for 15 bucks. XOTB has a very chemical sunscreenish flavor after too many bowls. The one flavor i can't get enough of is Fuzzy Navel though..... It's really good. And i'm not too much of a fan of fruity flavors (yeah i know...), i like the odd flavors, for example Pumpkin Pie and Irish Cream. In my honest opinion, HH makes a much better Irish Cream, but a much worse Pumpkin Pie. And i love my Pumpkin Pie.

But honestly i mainly buy it because the flavors i get are strong and i enjoy them, and i am not a buzz fan.

well, you gotta remeber, everyone's taste preference is different...just because most people lik the strong and delicious flavor that Starbuzz has to offer, doesn't mean everyone will... there will be the rare few people here and there that completely dislike Starbuzz and don't enjoy the flavor...it's what makes all of us different, the fact that we all have different taste and different preferences. I don't know what your favorite brand is, but I can gaurantee you that there are people out there who will totally hate your favorite brand because of w/e reason... I personally think Starbuzz is one of the best if not the best flavor on the market for hookahs. It completely won me over the first day I tried it at the local lounge in my area 2 years ago. And till this day I still purchase it religiously!

I've tried the flavours ( not the Fuzzy Navel) mentioned and I guess my view is that that they don't taste pumpkin pie or Irish cream. Instead, it tastes very artificial to me as does the fruit flavours (unless they have a candy type taste) i've had. Still, SB has a huge number of flavours and i've had just a handful. I've never seen SB for sale for just $15 so i'm wondering where you get it for that?

Connections! I gave my friend who owns a tobacco store a new wholesale company option, and he went with them, and sells out of SB every time he gets it, so i get it 10 dollar discount. Haha. From his price though. which is 25. he likes to jack up prices. I really like the fuzzy navel though, but it's candy-ish flavor because it's based off a wine cooler which already is artificial flavor. So based on the taste of a Fuzzy Navel wine cooler, it's perfect.

I think each brand has a star flavor. I really enjoy Starbuzz Lemon Mint and Peach.

I have heard that the brand suffers consistency problems and that should never be at the price they charge.

I enjoyed their pumpkin pie sample mailed to me and I would buy it if I didn't have several kilos to smoke already.

I have a tried a few that I really enjoyed! The White Peach, X on the Beach, and Marlette ... but I have tried others that I didn't like as much. It is all personal taste.

... I want to try some of that pumpkin pie!

This is odd... In the couple of years I've been smoking hookah, I've religiously purchased Starbuzz and nothing else. I've tried over 14 different flavors from them, and not once was I ever dissapointed with a flavor. Till this day, I have not come across a Starbuzz flavor where I can say that it's repulsive or that it doesn't taste good. I guess I'm not that picky 8)

I've tried Layalina and Romman and Al-Amir. IMO, Starbuzz kicks their ass ten times over! Layalina and Romman both dissapointed me. They didn't have the flavor intensity of Starbuzz, and the thickness of the smoke wasn't all that great either. Thank god they were only sample packs! Al-Amir was pretty good actually. Not as flavorful as Starbuzz, but it was good, and I purchased it more than once... Me and my fellow smokers ALL love the flavor and smell of Starbuzz shisha. To us, Starbuzz is second to none...

I think X on the Beach is supposed to mimic the taste/flavor of the alcoholic drink sex on the beach... When we first smoked it, this was the first thing we noticed, it tastes exactly like the drink...( I have a few alcoholic friends which also thought that it tasted just like the drink).
