Default Never again...

I will never smoke starbuzz again because of the way this White Peach tasted last time I smoked it, and the general decline of their products...

So, is there anything like this, that has happened to you, that made you completely stop using a product or brand that you once liked?

no O_O

that must have been a horrendous flavor, coupled with the fact that you paid out the ass since it IS starbuzz.

tough luck man

I can't try a wide variety of brands.. just Nakhla, Al Waha, AF (hard to get for me). Never liked al waha, but liked the other 2 from start.

I hear good stories from White Peach, maybe just a bad batch?

I tried the white peach at a lounge and really didn't like it. The smoke was harsh and it gave me a headache.

Traditional tobacco has largely ruined modern tobaccos for me. They just don't hold the same appeal.

Not to defend the product, but i am surprised you didn't like SB White peach i realize there a quite a few people who don't like Starbuzz as a brand because it is considered a modern tobacco, and its damn expensive. IMO SS white peach was terrible and SB was WAY WAY better... but thats just my opinion. However, i have all but sworn off Afzal, Rosetta and similar brands that seem to plague the crappier smoke shops in my area. And generally, i only use my nammor over any hose, because i think everything else i own is inferior, so i make my friends use the plain myas and other 2 unwashable modern hoses i own.

I've got 100g of Starbuzz Orange that has pretty much changed my mind about ordering anything else SB. Starts out pretty good then gets super harsh. No amount of purging or heat management helps.

I did order some SB blue mist but if that isn't living up to my standards then I'll be smoking Fantasia for a while.

I think it may just be peach flavors in general right now. I have sworn off peach for awhile because the last few batches I got went like this: AW 50g (good), HH 50g (awesome), HH 250g (SUCKED), SB 100g (SUCKED), SS 100g (BAD).

I blame the health food industry... Messing with all our artificial flavorings.... *mumbleconspiracymumblemumble*

I have had the same issue but then again i rarely smoke SB now that i have my DM... and if i run out of DM i have nak.. so SB is reserved for the hookah newbies that come over... SB in the beginning wasnt terrible but lately there is more stems than actual tobacco and their flavoring tastes too much like chemical now I just cant bring myself to smoke it

+1 on that Coyo. I've become an almost exclusive Nak and DM fan myself. Just lost interest in the other brands. Not saying they are bad, just not for me. Smoke happy.

Yeah the sugary artificial flavors and the price, two main factors why I don't like sb. As far as peach, mizo peach is the best damn natural peach out there!

I smoked starbuzz bluemist 2 days in a row, and puked half way through the second one. I've been smoking DM often and maybe throw in a Nak. Fruit flavor in every couple days.

(I love af mint and af soft black as exceptions though!)

So far ive had 3 starbuzz flavors.... Grape, Passion Kiss, and Peachs and Cream not a big fan of any really. They make me kinda sick. Which I think is due the sweetness like y'all were saying.

My last try with starbuzz today.... I got a decent array of flavors coming in through UPS this afternoon I am going to try.
Blue mist
Strawberry Margarita
Tangerine Dream
Safari Melondew
Winterfresh
If I dont find one I like of that am giving up on them.

As for White Peach.... FUMARI!!! Love this stuff and I dont even like Peach flavorings. One downside to fumari is that its priced like an American made tobacco but made in Jordan.

As for the topic of liking a Tobacco then hating it... I haven't been smoking long enough I dont think.

I'll second you on the Fumari endorsement. However, who cares where it's made if the price reflects the quality? Fumari is in my opinion, the best modern-style ma'assell on the market. It has the price to quality ratio that starbuzz should have.

I've always kept a tin of SB Citrus Mist around, smoking some maybe once a month. I really did like the flavor a lot at one time, it was the only SB I liked. I've mainly been smoking Nakhla and Soft Black lately. The last time I smoked the SB, the artificialness/chemicalness of it really hit me and in fact I got the worst hookah headache I've ever had. No more SB for me thanks!
