I highly recommend Nakhla Mizo White Grape. Same AF flavor, without the crappy burn-inducing cut and much better quality control.

Is it like a natural grape flavor as in the actual fruit flavor or is it an artificial grape flavor as in Grape Soda or Grape candy, etc.?

I love the natural grape flavor but I hate the artificial flavor so the above question is the key to buying or not buying some Mizo Grape...

It tastes like AF White Grape. I guess everyone would call that "natural".

NOOOO!!! Just got my AF Grape . . . smells like freaking ketchup.

This blows. Although, Sahara Smoke was kind enough to send me 50gm of their new Evolution Tea Shisha (Strawberry). I will smoke both tonight and write up a review.

What are the chances that SSC would replace the AF?

EDIT: BTW its the July 09 batch . . . I don't know if that helps, but watch out.

Well I called up SSC and the rep that I spoke to said that would likely replace it for me, but would call me back. I'll keep you guys updated.

Did yours also have a faint latex undertone like mine did? Ketchup I could probably get past. Smelling like a party balloon? Not so much.

I haven't smoked it yet, but I didn't smell anything latex like. Only nasty ketchup . . . not even Heinz ketchup it was like crappy expired dollar store ketchup

I'll take lousy ketchup over dead rotting animal carcus. It's not their resposability to replace it but they might do something for you, you could offer to pay the shipping maybe. I am so done with AF. After this episode I really don't want their product. There is plenty of other brands out there, who needs them, they don't care. Get in touch with the company rep itself here in the US if you don't get anywhere. Sorry man, I know how you feel.

Get El Basha grape if you can find it. It's hands down my favorite grape. It's Nakhla so it burns the same way and everything. The taste is a candyish flavor like bubble gum but it tastes so damn good.

dude guys, stop buying AF. 9/10 of the batches are bad. buy nakhla mizo grape. it's exactly what you want from AF, except the cut is different (it's WAY better than an AF cut) and it's not dyed multiple bright colors.

stop buying from the heinz plant and try it. if you're skeptical, look in the trade section and trade with another member.

Yea, they said they would exchange it if I paid shipping both ways. Its not worth it.

I just ordered 250gm of Nakhla Mizo Grape. Bye AF it was nice knowing you.
