Packaging is expensive for the manfacturer, they have to raise their prices if the packaging is more
understand?

if i were to try and sale you dog shit in a paper bag would you buy it... no?!
hmmm
okay how about if i put this dog shit in a pouch (with a ziplock of course) that has "Dog Shit" labeled all over, now would you buy it?.... NO?!
wtf i thought that is what you wanted lol

see man... packaging means shit if the product is shit
Just thought it was more convenient. Didn't buy it for the ziplock bag, didn't even know it came in a ziplock bag. Don't lose your cool over a thread...

are you trying to imply that because its in a zipper bag it wont leak and will be fresh? i dont know how many af tubs ive gotten that were leaking through their bag. i even got one that was leaking through the tub (the box looked like the shipper ran it over with a truck a few times tho). i think eric got it right with putting it in a vacuum sealed bag then wrapper. id always hate taking off the shrink wrap, opening the box then opening a bag then unwrapping the platic wrap to get to it.

well if it goes so fast why does it matter? also i dont buy 50g because
a) tangiers doesnt come in 50g
b) thats like 2 bowls totals and
c) if you scale it up to 250g price its way more expensive

im not losing my "cool" over a thread.. just putting out an example.. doesn't matter if the packaging is all fancy and what not but the product will still be crap... i think the only reason some tobacco companies use all that fancy packaging is to sale their product because the product can't sale itself.. get what im trying to say?

like nakhla, DM
wonderful tobacco, not so flashy packaging, tobacco sales itself

fantasia, SB, AF etc
IMO craptastic tobaccos (some are OK), flashy packaging, yada yada

get what im trying to say?

AF's packaging is no more flashy than Nakhla...Unless cardboard is all the rage right now?

One of the many great tips I've learned from the great people here at HP is to transfer shisha to a tupperware type container. It just made sense to me to have it in a container that was more puncture proof and easier to mix up vs tyring to mix it in plastic bags! Yes, its an extra step, but I'm learning well worth it to protect shisha investment. Is there really going to be a 700% increase in shisha tax? That sucks!
