Default just sampled 2 af flavors

so tonight i was about to close shop and decided why the hell not? i should try a few flavs that i haven't tried yet, so i grabbed 3 50gram paks af, cherry, melon, and mint, (yes, having your own hookah shop has its perks).
Now the mint I have tried before but I am not a mint guy, i like to add a little mint in the mix once in a while so that's why i grabbed that pack, howevr i haven't tried cherry or melon.
So, I come home, have dinner with the fam, put the kids to sleep and as usual, I prepare my 36"mz and pack my phunnel bowl with cherry by AF. It's great, lots of smoke and tons of flavor, kind of like cocktail cherries. Then I decided, why not, just try the melon tonight as well, so I make some new coals and replace the shisha with melon. Very different, smooth, way less flavor, but just mild and pleasant to smoke. Both are good, very different but good. It's fun to mix things up as I have been getting tired of double apple and mixed fruits. I would suggest whatever brand you get, just get the 50g packs at first, then decide what you like and commit to the bigger purchases.
Also, there are just some flavors that you like once in a great while like caffe latte, or lemon, or etc. Just try them all.
OK, rant/rave over.

Yeah I agree with trying new flavors, you never know what you may like! I got "talked into" buying AF Grape, and ohhh I am glad I tried it! You just never know what you are going to like!?

And for those of you afraid to try double apple, when you get bored and want to try something different, try a little 50gm pack of the Nakhla Double Apple ... you may love it!? I do now, and didn't the first time I tried it a long time ago.

I second the DA. I used to hate it, now I love it, I crave it a few times a month. I have 500g of it at home all the time.

DA was my first tobacco and I still enjoy it. And agree, I pick up 50gr all the time just to sample flavors from different brands. That gives me a couple bowls to try it out. Has anyone had any luck mixing DA with any other flavors? I haven't tried to yet but wondering if it does well.

It might be good with a little Al Fakher Mint, because AF Mint is so refreshing! But just like 10%

I buy 50g packs all the time, but only because i haven't found any stores that sell any bigger. I've tried mixing Nakhla Double Apple before, but the DA taste usually overwhelms the tobacco you mixed it with... although mixing some AF mint with is might work, I'll try that once theres AF mint available again.

AF mint is the greatest! Sounds like it would go perfectly with the melon flavor!

when i went to ******* hookah, i bought 250g of nakhla double apple. john thought it was a blast from the past - which it is! its one of those flavors that mostly everyone started smoking, but didnt really enjoy it until years later they are like, "mmm i want that again!", partly i think because of nostalgia. if it wasnt for those memories, years back, when this lebanese girl Farah would come over and prepare hookah for me, i probably wouldnt be craving nakhla double apple. the moment i smoke it i feel like im living back then when hookah was so new to me, and her boobs were so nice.

Yeah, double apple just seems to bring you back, even if you didn't try it back then! I had a different double apple ... but the nakhla is just fantastic! definitely going to be a staple in my supply!

I personally love AF mint and grape (will buy the grape once I can get one from 2008)

Nakhla Mint is pretty good too1 But what sux is that there isn't a bit of minty taste like AF's , its just cold and powerful. To describe it a lil better, it just feels like you are smoking really really cold smoke. If Nakhla added some taste like AF does, people would probably like it a lot.

Jilly, I don't get it, you are in CA, a lot of place have AF GRape 08, there was another topic that discussed this about a certain vendor that has all 08AF in stock for 250g. ahem.
But seriously getting 08 grape should be a nonissue now, am i missing something?

Yeah I would play it safe and order from him too, he seems really honest and has some good deals. He is straight up telling you the manufactured dates of the tobacco you are ordering. heck you could probably even call him up and I am sure he would graciously help ya out with any questions ya have. I have spoken with him on the phone, seems like a good guy.

i have to be honest, what the heck is cardamom? I haven't tried it yet but I sure do look at it. The thing with AF is you can't smell the flavor from the outside of the box since the packaging is top notch. The grenadine is great though I finished my tub a few months back. I want to try vanilla next though, has anyone tried that?
