Default Nakhla need reconditioning??

So I got 4 250g boxes of Nakhla a bit ago on clearance, and it has been okay. I just got a box of Nakhla Mint from a little middle eastern place around the corner, which I would expect to be a little old. I put them side by side, and the stuff from the little shop looks, I guess more fresh? If I were to try and recondition the clearance stuff, what should I use. I have some molasses on hand, but I think it's too dark (it is unsulfured). Maybe honey? Some pics to compare them, the stuff on the right is what I think may need reconditioning.

Looks fine to me, different nak flavors have different "moisture" levels.

yeah, it's just because it's different flavors which can mean different cuts, and different moistures

before you recondition anything, smoke it, if it smokes fine, than problem solved, if it doesnt and its dry and harsh
molasses is the way to go, but dont use too much

different stuff has different amount of juice. Personally the nakhla mint is good but the orange tastes like straight up ass crack. it may just be the flavor. if you want nakhla, go for the double apple or the "basha" grape, however i got a little sidelined there, it looks smokeable.

Seriously both those orange and mint look so tasty haha.

Sometimes when I buy Nakhla, especially DA, i get wetter ones, and sometimes dryer ones. Some flavours are just much drier than others. Mango, Cappuchino, Mandarine are all quite dry imo, and DA, Strawberry are more wetter ones afaik.

They are supposed to look like that, Honestly More nakhla you get looks more like the Nakhla Orange on the right, I've only bad my Nakhla Strawberry (in a can) look like the mint on the left.

It's fine ^^
