i thought coconaras were always in cubes? I like the new packaging also.
I love my cocos, besides exoticas they are all i use now.

oh ok i see what you mean now, yeah they are thicker now making them more cubed. I like how they are, seems like they last longer now too.

Hm now that I look at them, they're more square than rectangular. Though a lot of them vary in size. Anyone else have that?

If your local store or vendor doesn't have them, you can always order right from the source! I ordered a couple of boxes right from http://www.coco-nara.us about a week ago. I haven't opened the box yet though. I plan on doing a review of them cuz they are my favorites!

Well, there's been a few bad batches that were shipped out right before the shortage, a couple months back. Some people have reported lousy performance with their Coconaras. Mine have been pretty solid except for the terrible smell during light up.

It's strong enough to give you a bad headache. Or maybe it's emitting some sort of toxin. I don't know.

Come to think of it, aren't Cocobricos cubic in shape? Maybe that's what Coconara is going after.

Nope they absolutely DO NOT smell like crap .. I absolutely love these coals .. If you walked into my house you would see a box of Coconaras and Exoticas on my fridge next to my stove. I like to think I know what it good and what is not. These are my coals of choice for sure! I don't notice a distinct odor when lighting them and they both last a long time.

Quicklights are terrible to light inside! Yuck! NEVER light quicklights inside they stink! If you can do naturals, do them instead .. but even naturals can have a bad smell when lighting.

I've been smoking coconara's for about six months now and I've never noticed much smell at all while lighting. There's a very faint "Campfire" aroma in the immediate vicinity, but other than that. Nothing.

Yeah.. most people here root for naturals.. but the places i normally smoke, except for one, i don't have the option to use them. I have a a box of Coconaras, and sadly i haven't gotten to use them yet because I haven't smoked at the friends house where i can use them.
Anyway, i get what you are saying, the box of Cocos i have aren't perfect cubes i dont think.. have you noticed that they work better with the slightly refined shape? or does it not really make a difference?

its mostly the same i suppose.. its just when it burns down it turns into what i can only describe as a cylinder (sorry for all the geometry)

i think i prefer the flatter shape (in my mind, it spreads the heat more horizontally, and when it ashes the coal doesn't turn to some weird shape).. but i'm not complaining.. and i actually don't know if are the same volume or if its like, the old size just made taller.. i think its the same volume though

My friend ordered a box last week and they are cubed now. They don't seem to perform any differently, it just meant that for a larger bowl we had to put three on to compensate for the lack of surface area on the coal

Just corrected.

I gotta say the best coal on the market has to be cocobricos, i know coconaras are great but cocobricos are just better, someone should start importing them to the US plus they are dirt cheap a kilo box is only $4 and you get 72 pieces

I've been hearing a lot recently about various shapes. I just picked some up and they are shaped as usual though. :/
