Default Grape shisha tasting like ketchup?

Hey guys, I have been hearing that some of you think grape flavored shisha tastes like ketchup?
I've never had this problem, if that's the case for you, can anyone offer up an explanation?

its mainly said towards the AF brand. supposedly it was bloody good, but that maybe they changed their recipe, thus leading to its decline. ive heard that it tastes and smells like ketchup, but thats only for the AF brand, all other grapes from other brands like nakhla are still good. hope i helped..! (:

Hm... interesting! I personally am a big fan of AF grape, but haven't had it in a while. I guess I'll have to try it out myself!

Al Fakher grape does indeed taste a bit like ketchup, and maybe a bit of white wine... but I've personally been searching for a brand that has a grape that tastes more like artificial grape (Like that of Grape Lollypops, Jolly Ranchers, or childrens grape cough syrup)... the only thing relatively close I have found is Fantasia Purple Haze, but at the same time it makes me gag, if another brand made it I would prefer it much more; I hate that same unexplainable twinge that all Fantasia flavors have.

You know thats funny, because my buddy ordered a jar of AF grape and it smelt so awesome, I was like Holy shit, what is that? haha and I hit it and it was delightful. He recently ordered another jar of it, and it smells good, but didnt still have the same effect. haha idk maybe fesh compared to not so fresh?

Fantasia purple haze is pretty good and mizo white grape is also a good grape.
One is candy flavored and the other a nice natural grape
No ketchup!

I ordered a 250g af grape an it was dated feb 2009. As soon as I opened the box, not even the bag, my apartment was destined to smell of ketchup for 7 days. Talk about bad horror movies. That went straight to the dumpster and out of my apartment, coming no where near my hookah. It smelled so bad I almost had to give kitchen a makeover.

Haha will do. I'll probably try it out tomorrow since I have a bit of a cough right now. Should clear up by tomorrow though.
