Default Did I buy fake coconaras? :(

Hey Guys

One of our German Shops finally sells Coconaras now. I ordered 2 Packs of 84 Coals. I never had them before, but what I can say is that I get a headache when smoking with those coals and they ash a lot finer than cocobricos. I added some pics. There was no flyer, no stamp inside and the letters of "Coco" look like they were done by some freakin badass on photoshop, look at the pixels.

And yes, they were fully lit when I smoked with them!

Yes that looked really strange to me as well, so I scanned the top of the package so that you guys could clearly see how pixelized the letters are. I mean I never had a pack of coconaras before so I thought that might be normal, but as you say - it is not.

I still have a few of the old boxes. I'll check on them later. I have a stock pile of coco nara's like it's no joke. For every pack of tobacco I buy, I buy two boxes of coco's. Just a habit of mine.

I checked the old boxes. They don't have pixals. But the new boxes I get don't come with flyers or paper from the 108 piece box. The old boxes came with papers though.

Maybe it can be one of the days when you have a session and it wasn't your day. I get those sometimes.

If your coco's are fake, they should still be better than QL's in my opinion.
