Default Black Snow 360

I visited a local retail vendor this afternoon to grab some coals and noticed a stack of SB-like cans on the Shelf. The brand is called Black Snow 360. Each can contains a bag of extremely soaked, strong smelling moassel not suprisingly very similar to SB. I wouldn't dare buy this as many of you are familiar w/my tastes, however I felt I'de post the emergence of a new product and open the topic up for discussion..

Its probably like the other shop people were talking about repackaging tangiers. They are probably repackaging SB flavor.

No sir. It's a standalone product. The bags were slightly different.While many product emulate SB, thier are a number of manufacturers of such products, many of which are located in HKJ.

what was the price on this. AS you know SB is California based and the big boys in MI have their own brands, I think it's either Al Amir or Al Waha, maybe even another brand, either way it's those guys brand to compete with SB. Not that I'm a fan of SB but I just don't like how people in this industry like to copy or steal. SB is a successful brand and there are several brands that think they can just copy someone's originality, undercut them and pass them in line. It's ok to open shop and make a shisha, but try something different or unique.

From my understanding Black Snow 360 is made by Al Amir and used to be called Skybuzz or Skyzz.

Having no interest in a purchase, I didn't bother checking the price but I would imagine it to be between $15-$20 acan.

I suppose that everyone has noticed that if you take low grade tobacco and boil it till no flavour is left and then drown it cheap candy flavourings and glycerin and throw it in a snazzy tin you can sell mountains of it to hippsters for $20 a pop. Given that reality it seems inevitable that a hundred companies will pop up to do the same thing that SB does. After all, why bother making something with decent tobacco or be innovative when millions of punters are just chomping at the bit for a chance to get fleeced? The public often gets what they demand and more often then not they demand crap in a shinny package.
