Default HYPNOSIS Tobacco

Has anybody tried or even heard of this brand? I was at my local shop in Chicago looking to buy some coals when the owner pointed to a new display on the shelf. It was stacked with red-colored tins of Hypnosis brand shisha, looks similar to Starbuzz. The owner mentioned it was made by Starbuzz but sells for $12. He also carried SB for $15. I opened a couple of cans and the smell/look was similar to some SB flavors. I didn't buy any since I already had purchased several flavors the previous week but I was wondering if anybody here has heard of this brand and whats their opinion. I looked online and I found one place that sells it (hookahcompany) for $16.99...here is a link with prouct pics:

Nope. It's me yawning.

I suppose I could say YAWM.... Yet another worthless moassel...

There's an abundance of bland, artifical-tasting, washed, dyed, syrupy pandering crap on the market. So here's another brand offering absolutely nothing special.

If they wanted to offer something dark, complex, and spicy with more tobacco than glycerin in the mix I might be interested, but I imagine that's highly unlikely.

Thanks. Some people do like Starbuzz type tobacco (as in washed, lowbuzz, wet and candyish flavours). However, paying $25 for a tin is a joke and if there are other brands that can compete for alot less price then its worth a look. I was also wondering if it was actually a line marketed by SB and targeted towards a certain markets like Ed Hardy...

To my understanding it is a sub line of Starbuzz. So they can have a tobacco that is lower priced. I think it is made by SB as well.

Try jm's, cheaper and imo better than sb, not as artificially sweet.

It is MADE BY STARBUZZ people!

It is a new brand made by them to compete with Al Fakher and such.

If I see a new flavor by them thats not made by SB, Ill definitely pick some up.

The shop I go to has this as well but its the same price that he sells SB for which is 16.99. So I figure why buy a brand thats supposed to be lower grade for the same price as a higher grade tobacco?
