Default Question about SB CODE 69

OK I got a 100g tin of SB CODE 69 recently and have just tried it out tonight got a couple of questions

1. Is it meant to be dyed red as the other Sb flavour i previously had no dye in it ?

2. What is it meant to taste like?? As I read reviews saying it tastes like a berry mix etc but mine is giving me a spicy/almost cough syrup taste ?

3. Do the 100g tins differ to the 250g tins in your experience Im thinking it shouldnt but you never know.

1. Yes it is supposed to be dyed.
2. it is supposed to be a berry mix like taste. So if it tasted like cough syrup you may have gotten a bad batch.
3. 100g tins and 250g tins should be the same quality tobacco. All i have noticed from smaller and larger quantities that there seems to be more stems per tobacco quantity i the smaller amounts, 50g vs 250g. But this just may be in my head.

Isn't this supposed to be a cherry flavor (mountain dew code red)?

1. Yes it should be dyed red and sticky & syrupy
2. Yes it is like a cherry/ Mt. Dew Code Red or like a Cherry 7 UP wo/ the carbonation. I personally liked the flavor and didn't think it tasted anything like cough syrup. You might just be one of those people who think all grape or cherry flavors taste like cough syrup or medicine
3. The 100g Tin vs the 250g tin there are really no differences.


I suggest that you try and get a different tin and try the flavor again.

I am one of those people so far with cherry flavors. I do not however get it from Code 69. That actually is about the only SB flavor I have liked so far.

Humm I just had SB - Cherry and it was pretty good I would consider trying it. Maybe just get a 50 or 100g tin.

did a video review of code 69 but cant get it to load on youtube, i dont get it but anyways IMO it def. tastes like HALL cough drops! hands down the worst SB iv had so far. i mean it did have a cherry berry taste, but the cough drop taste overpowered it for me! like a menthol kinda thing, if that makes any sense.

Get Safari Melow Dew! Very good flavor!

A vendor once said it tastes like Tangiers Passion fruit, so I always assume it's a passion fruit flavor. It definitely does not smell like a berry mix. Passion...69.. makes sense.

I am currently smoking Code 69 as well, I only bought it because of the name. However, it does taste VERY similar to Mountain Dew Code Red. It is the only product from Starbuzz that gives me a headache though. The only other thing I get headaches from is smoking tons of Fantasia Pink Lemonade.

So many different tastes from a flavor of a brand that is not known for it's complexity

what the heck is going on?

All I can say for sure is I've tried a dozen different brands and a couple hundreads different flavors
this flavor had no complexity and was the worst thing I ever smoked

Being on separate flavor plains with each user is far from complex, and is sign of a shitty tobacco.

We dont have Mountain dew Code red here in Australia not that i know of anyway so cant comment ...
Gotta agree with Jhawk though gave me a headache second bowl same as the first kinda spicy taste etc dissapointed overall with this flavour was expecting something real nice.

Hopefully white peach, safari melon, pomberry and tangerine dream will be what i expect
