Angry bad batch 08

i just got my order of af grape and it read prd date feb 08 but wen i opened it it smelled of old ketchup. maybe it was just the smell so i smoked it , it tasted horrible and made me sick. but ill see what it smells like in a couple of days. i was very disappointed about this. hopefully hookah-shisha will be able to send me something else.

this is odd. I"ve tried the '08 grape and it was fine. AF needs to do something about this! This is there flagship flavor for goodness sake!!

lol ... Sorry to laugh, you guys are funny so its true everyone on the forums saying it smells like ketchup

AF cant handle the loads of grape his selling so he mixed in some ketchup to slow down the sales.

I got 50g al-waha grape yesterday the date was fine '08 and it smelt like crap when i opened it, smoking it made me almost chuck. now i can`t get the smell out of the hookah its that bad.

Be careful MrB, my Golden went completely crap in less than 4 weeks. When I bought it, it was perfect. Then slowly it just died. And I wouldn't have believed it but it really did have a ketchup smell.

Meh, It will blow over in time. If it doesn't its a new recipe change and I guess all of the AF grape cats out there will have to find a new go to grape. I prefer nahkla grape. mmmm Just thinking about it makes me wish I had money to order a box .

juno and me are here smoking a 50g pack produced in feb08. If you try hard enough, you can make yourself believe that there may be a hint of ketchup, but not really. It's good but not a go to flavor, but then again I have never been a grape guy. Maybe the ketchup smell is a placebo effect, just because we have been taught to look for it.
