Default Tobacco?

I'm 95% sure that this is Al Fakher. But, what size is this container? I know that AF sells in 50 and 250, but could this be 100g?

This is sold by a local shop and $7.49 for 250 seems like it could be a solid price (a bunch of varieties). What do you guys get AF for from your local shops?

As far as I know AF doesn't sell anything in 100g.
My guess is 250g.

well for that price I say buy it. It looks like Af to me, but I could be wrong. Worst comes to worst you are only out $8 for some crappy tobacco

agree totally. ( just curious cause i am easily thrown off into weird tangents, is shish really faster than typing out shisha? not trying to be a dick, again just one of my weird thoughts. it might keep me up at night.)

that's a good price for a 250g. If I were in your shoes, I'd buy it and see what it's like. Worst-case, its shitty and life goes on.

just me personally, but i've never seen AF sold in the states without the "Al Fakher, the incomparable special taste of Al Fakher" logo on it. honestly, it looks fake as hell to me, it's also missing the exterior plastic with AF seal, the crown logo to the left, and the hookah image on the right that all AF 250g packages display. i suppose it could be a packaging not intended for western markets...

is it dated? if it hasn't expired, maybe a decent buy (if that's really AF coconut, watch out for crazy ghosting). at worst, like others have said, you're out $8

FYI, This is actually called Dubai Mo'assel /Tobacco not Al Fakher. Dubai tobacco factory manufactures its products under the name "dubai tobacco " with guaranteed quality and under license of al fakher trading company

I guess not...just what my friends have always called it so i guess it caught on, if you would prefer i can type out shisha fully, it isn't that hard to do im just pretty damn lazy.

It is not fake or real Al Fakher...Its a totally different brand called Dubai Mo'assel made in the UAE. Very popular in the gulf.
