Default Pineapple shisha? Any worth trying?

I noticed in the reviews I've read that pineapple flavor (regardless of the brand) seems to always get a bad rating. Is there a good Pineapple shisha out there? I don't want to pay $17.99- $19.99 for a 250g can of it and I don't want to have to acclimate it for 36 hours so it doesn't smell and taste like Bar b que sauce either. LOL

if you've had a pineapple shisha that was good please list it.

Pineapple seems to be a good mixer I think. AF is supposed to be pretty good.

we should bump that thread, so we can find out, who has gotten something and who hasn't? I know that is a bit off topic from this thread ... but we should have a good understanding of where we are with the whole "Secret Santa" that was held this past Christmas. Curious minds want to know!

I can't find a good one. The one I havn't tried but i wanna is Rosetta (but judging by the other flavors....i dunno. it's a gamble). AF is fine for pineapple taste... it's decent, but not delicious. Pineapple is like pomegranate, just too mellow to duplicate.

Pineapple flavors, as a warning, do not taste like Fresh Pineapple. They taste like canned, warm pineapple that's been sitting in syrup. It will disappoint you.

I wanna mix it with some Coconut, make a Pina Colada. . That's the only thing i could think of that it's good for.

I've tried AW's, AF's and I think Rommans (but I could be wrong) pineapple. None of them were spot on, they would smell strange and taste weirder. Even mixed with Coconut, it was werid. Not overly pleasant - Pineapple seems to be one of those flavors that can't seem to be replicated well.

Hey Dunkel,
I tried HH Pineapple just for you last night.

It's good on flavor, it's a true Pineapple, but the smoke is just very lacking.

One major flaw with H-H... bummer. But if H-H can make a good Pineapple, somebody else MUST be able to do it!

Exactly! If they just switched to a larger cut, their tobacco would be great. They have everything but the cut! AHHH!

Hmmm So maybe HH with a little added glycerine might be the ticket. Thanks for the tips!

Most Pineapples, to me, smell alot like crap. The smell is weird...a little vinegar mixed with something else I can't put my finger on.

THE ONLY PINEAPPLE WORTH TRYING IMHO is....

AL AMIR PINEAPPLE! Stuff is hella good, and full of flavor. Not as strong as their Apple or Orange, but still fantastic!

Call me stubborn, but I'm not trying anymore Al Amir crap - I've tried alot of it, and while some flavors are ok, most taste the same to me! :P

But Jilly, i think DMC was talking about more along the lines of USING a pineapple to make a fruit bowlhead and smoke some tobacco out of it. Interesting thought...

I've tried AF pineapple and wasn't too impressed. Then I mixed it with some AF coconut and it made a killer pinacolada!

I have some af pineapple, and its flavor gets sickening after a while. The only pineapple I found to be good was tangies pineapple, tasted just like fresh pineaple, but it is a flavor that is most tepermental with acclimation, so I only got a few god smokes out of it.
