Default AL FAKHER Recipe Change

I just got some good information tonight in chat. I was told that AF grape doesn't have a bad batch going around, but that they changed the recipe. I was told that the older stuff is the good grape and that the batch I got was from the new recipe. The older batch will start to become scarce soon.

I don't know why they would change their number one selling shisha recipe? That is their most popular flavor, why change it?

I didn't get the info from an AF rep, so I don't really know how true it is. I did get it from a widely known company.

I doubt this is true....

I got some recent batches and they are good. I have heard of some bad batches... they probably had a bad month or two with select flavors. It wouldnt be this first time it happens with a large shisha producer.

And like I said, they probably wouldn't change their number one selling flavor. I will try to find out though.

I'm gonna agree w/sam on this one. I'de be suprised , to say the least, if they altered thier flagship flavor.
Although, I did recently notice that the new af is listing glycerin as an ingredient in addition to mollasses, whereas the older stuff only listed mollasses. Either they've always been using glycerin and wheren't listing it or they recently began adding it to the "new hotness".

Mike, that can’t be true – based on your the description of the bad product.

The more recently produced shisha from AF is now in a heavy mylar zip lock bag. According to what you said there was no bag in the tub. Also, the AF Grape (not gold) is red; you had said your shisha was brown.

Besides, I wouldn’t worry about it Bro, you’ve got some good AF grape coming your way any day now.

Smoke the hell out of it – crap thunder and eat lightning and know Mickey loves ya!
haha

But i just was given 2 50's of AF White Grape to test because 3 people have told the smoke shop that it tastes shitty. I have smoked 1 box, and it was completely normal, the production date is November. The other one i havn't tried though, they are all the same date as well. I bought a 50 of this same flavor from the same place with the same production date in the beginning of this month, it was terrible as all hell.

I think it's the batches, or at least the weather fucking around with the tobacco itself. Tangiers has been pretty funky as well.

Like I stated above I wasn't sure how true this was.I have to say thanks to Martello for the hook up. I hope that the shisha I sent you gets there soon. One more thing, my AF grape is red and had a date of AUG 2007.

Why did Coke discontinue original coke and create "new coke" - because there is always a bonehead in the marketing department.

Either that or they are using their hookahs to smoke something besides shisha!

I have a theory that they did change something in the tobacco and I forgot where I heard it, but someone talked to a AF Representative through emails and this person said that they did not change the Grape recipe, they "strengthened it".

The bad grape is still going on from what I've been hearing :\ It saddens me since Af Grape used to be my fav flav from AF

just kidding. I acclimated/accliraped my bad AF grape.
It tasted like...crushed white grapes with a dash of ketchup.
not very good, but smokable, and gives off some monster clouds.
