Default Why is all AF red?

I've tried several flavors of AF, and all of it is ALWAYS dyed red. Does anybody know WHY? It boggles my mind! Mint isn't supposed to be red..
Are there any flavors that aren't red? Perhaps I just haven't tried the right ones.

So they can make your throat hurt. It's to get back at us for the war in Iraq.

Most of the flavors I have tried are all red. Or a form of red... & I have tried most except for... Hmm. Soft black? & Pipe. Which are the only two I could imagine being not red.

& its red because its crumby & chemically & barely tobacco at all .

No, I haven't actually. I haven't tried that many flavors of SB, but all of the ones that were dyed seemed to be dyed in accordance with flavor, orange for citrus mist and orange, yellow for banana, etc.

Haha I never realized this. My AF lemon&mint, cola, caffe latte, etc have all been blood red! That's just funny.

This is a good question. It might have something to do with why their batches can be so sketchy.

Yeah when I used to smoke AF Cafe latte... It freaked me out hardcore seeing it red.


Just stay with Nakhla.

the golden line is, at least three of them anyway. golden grape is a bit purple in color, golden eskandarani apple is almost no dye but has a hue of green, and golden baiharani apple is red. it could be, though, that the green hue in esk. apple is not really there, just imagination

I was basing that on the Esk apple which does not have dye as far as I am aware. i do not see a green tinge in mine. I forgot about the dye in the other ones even though I have most of the,.

I know a few of their flavors they've recently ceased using food coloring. My theory has to always present the tobacco as more of a "friendly" item, almost like candy, rather than tobacco, which has quite the stigma in the states. Bottom line, I can't help but feel like I just stabbed someone after I load a bowl of AF.

+1

If it's red like my favorite candy, it can't be nearly as bad for me than any other form of smoking, right?

You don t have it guys, it's the whole reason why AF is sooo good and red, it's because it's made with the blood and tears of labor and love!

I wish all tobacco makers would just drop the coloring. Or if they're going to do it, it should at least make sense. Take Nakhla DA, it's red, like an apple. Makes sense. Now take JM's S'Mores..let's see..graham cracker chocolate and marshmallow. What color is the tobacco? Why, red of course!

Mercury is not red.... Lol. If a thermometer has a red line rather than a silver it's actually an alcohol mix.

I hope I have thoroughly ruined the joke. :P

They do. Mostly lab use. They are more accurate and often easier to read. For the most part an alcohol thermometer will treat the average person perfectly fine so that's what you will find on shelves.
