Default Thinking of purchasing AF soft black

I'm thinking of purchasing a tub of AF soft black when i get my income tax refund. I've always wanted to try it and i know a lot of people here have always wanted to try it as well. And for 40 bucks, its not that bad considering i probably spend more money on junk food a week.

The thing im wondering is IF i decide to purchase this, what would be the best/cheapest way of shipping it around? I don't want to have to go out and purchase 20 mini tupperwares. And im sure using a bag wouldn't work well either.

I'm not expecting anyone to give me anything, the ONLY thing i ask for is IF you have a camera, is that i would like you to make a review of the shisha and say thank you to me in your review.

There are selected people i know that i would want to send this out to but like i said I'm still thinking of whether or not i want to do this. So i don't want this thread being flooded with requests for me to send it to them. That's not the point of this thread. I know i can't share with everyone but i'll do my best to send it out to those who are deserving.

Also does anyone know where i can purchase this? So far all i know is **********, and Hookahset. So far hookahset is the cheapest at 39.99+4.90 s/h.

The kilo comes in a big plastic tub. I keep most of it in there with the tub sealed in a big ziploc bag.
I do keep some (200g +/-) in a smaller tupperware type container for my daily use and transfer more out of the big tub as needed.

TheHookah.com has the 250g tub on their wholesaler website, although I'm pretty sure that mortals like you and me are not allowed to order on there. Perhaps you could contact them and negotiate an arrangement.

The best way for you to ship I think would be to use Zip Lock bags and use USPS Priority Mail Small Box shipment for about $5 anywhere in the 48 Contiguous US states. You get the small boxes to ship for free at the post office or request some to be sent to you also for free via the usps website.

You know you want it.

Easiest way to ship it is probably double-bagged in ziplock baggies. Keep in mind that this isn't drippy, runny, syrupy starbuzz-type stuff that will soak everything through 7 layers of plastic, it's relatively dry (Though still wetter than a lot of the traditionals.)

It's a good segue into the world of traditional tobacco. Not as intense as some of the stuff, but still a good, mildly sweet natural tobacco flavor. You'll like it.

Hm, before I start forging legal documents, I'd probably ask them if they'd kindly sell me one tub through their consumer website. Best way is probably to call the owner directly and beg as much as your dignity will allow.

The reason they only make a kilo of the stuff is because its so dam good and they know you will smoke it all wanting more. Good purchase

If you've ever been near someone smoking a pleasant, aromatic pipe tobacco... It's like that.

In a word, amazing.
