Dude. I've been acclimating my AF Cola for over 3 months total. It still has the ketchup smell.

It's getting better slowly though. But it's a long term investment (if it even works.)

ive stopped in here with the intention to respond twice already, never actually posting what i wrote. Heres what ive come up with...

1. try to contact the vendor you got it from and see if there are any options
2. like Bob said, be prepared for the long haul.

Personally ive read about enough bad AF to steer my spending toward another brand.

Yea I would go with this advice. Which flavors did you get that were bad? I recently got an order of a few 250g tubs, my apple bahraini is either a really bad flavor or a bad batch, rest were ok after acclimating though

I acclimated a 50g of AF grape for about a month and it still had a bit of ketchup smell to it.

I acclimated an af grape tub for 3 weeks before. Worked fine after that. But usually after three days if it's bad. Then well... It's bad
