Default Maybe going commercial

sup guys

so here i am smoking some home made shisha on campus and people keep tellin me they love my stuff and some people have even bought my "butterbeer" shisha off me. it gave me an idea, i might take my operation commercial but first id need to know what hookah educated people think. If i were to send out free samples would anyone be interested in giving me some feedback and suggestions and some helpful criticism? let me know its a possibility.


NOTE: THIS IS NOT A SALES PITCH, I AM NOT ADVERTISING A PRODUCT, I DO NOT HAVE A TOBACCO LICENSE, I AM MERELY TRYING TO GET FEEDBACK ON MY SHISHA SO THAT IN THE FUTURE IF I DO BECOME A VENDOR I WILL SATISFY THE COMMUNITY, THANK YOU FOR YOUR INPUT!

I'd be more than willing to review your stuff and if it's any good I'd likely buy some off you.

As to the commercial side of this, it's gonna be hard to get all the licenses and things. I'd suggest reading this even though it's not quite what you're aiming for, it will make it a bit clearer what kind of mess you're about to step in.

Going commercial is a bad idea unless you can get your hands on a few hundred K and you know something about the chemistry of industrial processing and packing and have managed a food, drink or tobacco related plant.

I'd definitely be interested in trying it. I don't have a camera for video reviews, but I'll definitely post on the forum.
So is this something you're making from mixing two different shishas or are you making it all from scratch?

If you are making a few batches and passing it along that is one thing but if you try to go major you will have all kinds of stuff to deal with like inspections, start up capital, licensing etc. If you want to go for it I am in for an unbiased review and wish the very best.

butter beer sounds like a delicious flavor and it's definitely a very unique flavor. i'd be more than willing to buy some off of you so that i could try it. i would definitely do a review for you and would be very eager to share it with many of my friends who are also shisha enthusiasts. get at me on this please.

oh on a side note..IF people like my stuff PLEASE know that it took haagen daz 10 years to perfect their stuff, i personally like my shisha but to each their own, when i get the new batch cooked up and samples sent off to EVERYONE interested, please dont feel shy to tell me if my stuff sucks or give suggestions as to what could be better, flavor,smoke, duration, etc. at the same time do not expect nahkla amazingness right off the bat, im going to send out samples so i can get a better idea of what i should improve so that if and when i get a website up i can make you guys happy just as knowing you all have made me happy.. thanks again for all your guys support it truly means a lot

Appears I have been singled out. I will be more than happy to try it out. I will review it and let everyone know what I think. If you don't want me to be honest with everyone, you may want me to pass on trying it.
