I believe Molasses is another terminology for Tobacco. So its AF Strawberry shisha in a 1KG tub.

Haha I'm pretty sure, a link would be helpful, unless your buying this in store or something. That way others can check it out too.

It's hookah tobacco; molasses is mixed in.


Most hookah tobacco is mixed with either honey or molasses. It's a very harsh smoke otherwise.

It's definitely shisha, my boyfriend and I pretty much always smoke AF (just because we've yet to try other brands) and they come in those tubs.

Would recommend the mint and grape flavours.

Woah where to begin
molasses is a sort of syrup like honey, it comes in many grades and flavors. Amber molasses is traditionally used to make hookah tobacco wet. In more modern tobacco it is also mixed with glycerin to make bigger clouds(you sacrifice taste).

A shisha is a hookah. Shisha tobacco is smoked in your hookah.
The picture your showing is a tub of al fahker.
Al fahker is one if the most popular brands of hookah tobacco in the world.

Molasses like honey is used in the kitchen as well.

You guys are crazy. Molassess is what is at the bottom of the *** when you make granulated sugar. What I'm assuming is it says molasses because it's a loose translation.

Molasses is mixed with tobacco to make MA'ASSEL which is what you smoke out of your pipe.

Just a recap for y'all:

Molasses= A sugarcane derivative

Ma'assel= A tobacco made by blending tobacco leaves with molasses and flavors

Shisha= A waterpipe used to smoke Ma'assel

But what you take off the top (the first drawing) is called light molasses which is used in making moessel.

Tombac is actually a different kind of hookah tobacco that is just tobacco leaves dried into a block that you soak in water and then smoke with a hookah.

Molasses is not a mistranslation. It's our language not representing it properly. In the same way that shisha means bottle or glass but is meant to mean the entire hookah... Molasses is correct. It's just more than only molasses.
