Default If you have recieved the Blend-Off top ten...

I loaded a bowl of O.P.P. and after smoking, it started to taste like chocolate. So I went back to my stash to see if I accidentally loaded the hazelnut chocolate truffle one. I couldn't really tell since I used to little of the shisha to fill the bowl, it is HH... so I reloaded with OPP, and yeah, it tastes like chocolate like 15 minutes in... It's supposed to be Orange, Pineapple, Peach... anyone else get that? It smells insanely fruity though. Idk..

Only tried one blend so far and frankly OPP is pretty low on my list of interest. I'll try not to remember this when smoking it and let you know if I find a similar flavor profile.

I've been pulling them out of the box randomly. I'm more excited about having the left over little jars at this point for other shisha than the flavors.
So far, nothing has compared to Shisha a la Martha. I smoked November Rain last night, and it was like... if shisha had a "plain" flavor, that wasn't tobacco, that'd be it.

None of the top ten seem to be worth smoking IMO... I tried strawberry fields, OPP, and the hazelnut truffle one today and wasn't impressed. Maybe i'm a bit spiteful about last round's results. (i'm still convinced there was some sort of foul play, but what can one do?)

I agree. you guys that got knocked out had some really good sounding blends. The sample of shooting spice I got smells different than the blend I received as well. There's really nothing that unique in the top 10. I believe my concept is unique, but the recipe needs some tweaking.

I got my box yesterday and immediately sat down and opened them all for the sniff test, and several smell either not at all or like a icky puke/ soap smell. Others smelled interesting or decent, but we're gonna have to wait for the smoke session to find out.

Also, how are you guys doing your smoke tests? I was thinking all ten in one day, back to back with some goof off time in between to let the taste buds readjust. Then all ten again a few days later (in a different order). Also, I was thinking of using my mini-mod so that the actual shisha used was less, making the session shorter.

So far, Shooting Spice is by far the best I've tried.

If you entered into that 2009 blend off you got a sampler of the top ten.

Seconded. I'll have to get some more H-H so I can experiment... their Orange is definitely one of my favorite flavors, but I haven't really looked into the rest of the line.

It's a damn good deal. You get 750 grams for the price of 250 of the custom blend. Also the chance of actually winning something.

I got the top ten sampler a few days back and can't get motivated to try one. I want to know what blends in the top 10 were created by the cheater.

I think that HP got robbed. I personally made all of the blends by HP members to the best of my ability and they were all pretty good. Shooting Spice was great... I believe it's a new staple tobacco.

Anyway, OT, I did get that wierd taste...

Me and my sis sat down with all intentions to smoke all ten blends at least once the other day. We were using a vortex packed ultra light so it was only 15-20 minutes a blend, and we only managed to get through three. The first two were so nasty that even the third one didn't make up for it. (We randomly sharpied 1-10 on the tops so it's fair.)

I'm not sure we're going to make the deadline if it keeps going like this...

Ummm.... mellow eclipse, strawberry fields and fruitopian transmission are the ones I know off the top of my head. There may be more from him but three out of ten is kind of ridiculous as is.

Zen Arcadia, Fruitopian Transmission, Strawberry Fields, Mellow Eclipse are all from one person (or group, they started with 6)

and OPP proxy voted to get in.

The only one that is even REMOTELY good in this list is Mellow Eclipse. It's like a freezie pop.

Here's a good question. I can't figure out how the hell to vote. Voting ends tonight...

(I feel so stupid saying that, but it's true.)

Didn't plan on voting anyway. I mean, I fully intended to at the beginning of the competition, but it was all a wash.

Oh I was livid after I got dumped out by two crap blends, but I figured I'd vote for the least crappy one so that we didn't get totally screwed in the long run.


Better yet, can HookahHookah just call massive cheating rules and start it over?
