Default hate to say it, but im sick of Starbuzz.

Well when I started smoking hookah I lived near a shop that sold ALL the Starbuzz flavors for 17 dollars, so needless to say I smoked a lot of Starbuzz. Ever since ******* hookah opened up though, I've been getting back into Al Fakher and Nakhla tobacco. I smoked a half of bowl of SB Blue mist and couldn't get into it at all, which is a shame because I have alot of Starbuzz.

So yea, basically I'm sick of Starbuzz/Fantasia tobacco, AF and Nakhla have my love now.

to those of us whom have an inclination towards more tradditional moassell, SB can be a bit too sweet and overpowering.AF and al nahkla are in my opinion, two of the better brands on the market.That's not to say SB doesn't have some good flavors. The x-mas blend amd marlette come to mind, but yes, sometimes it's nice to have something abit more subtle. Good for you!

There's not gonna be much, I'm giving most of it to my friends who are trading. I've got a little tiny bit left of Blue Mist, Vanilla and Lemon tea, probably not worth sending it but PM me.

I've never been a huge fan of SB. To try a flavor and not like it is just a waste of cash

SB for me eventually got too sweet. It wasn't really like WOW THIS IS SWEET ugh and walk away from it, but it was more like a over time thing. I began to desire a change of pace, from all of the sweetness. I would kid myself and be like nahhh and keeep smoking starbuzz. Now I am completely burnt out on any kind of SB.

SB for me isn't too sweet, it's just too damn expensive. I can buy 2 tubs of AF, or any assortment of other brand flavors I highly enjoy. It's just simple econnomics on my end. Even if I were to buy it from a local shop it's $25 after tax.

the price is another problem I have w/SB.I see no reason for this product to be so overpriced.It's made right here in the US for goodness sake!
And yeah kwik, $25 is crazy!!

Yeah. Especially when Baja (made here, too) costs the same as AF, comes in neat packaging, and doesn't come in weird colors!

Sorry to answer for uglybiker, but as far as i know TheHookah.com is the only vendor that carries Baja. Kahlua and Orange are my favorite flavors from them.

I'm not a big SB fan at all. Too expensive, drenched in dyed juice (for the most part), stems O' plenty, and I only like 1 out of 3 flavors I've tried. X on the beach sucked, so did Tequila Sunrise, but the Citrus Mint or Gummy Bears was right tasty.

Although SB is pretty expensive (even though I get it for a price that is waaayyy less expensive than $20 :P) I still like it! I don't think any brand can beat the amount of clouds and amount of time the flavor lasts (except Tangiers...But I have yet to master the perfect bowl)

I had Baja going for just under 2 hours with huge clouds before stopping. Didn't feel like breaking out a third set of coals. And the flavor didn't go anywhere, stayed the entire smoke. Baja is a product of JM tobacco of California. A producer of cigars. They make a fantastic shisha, very nice cut and almost ZERO stems. An excellent packaging system, including heavy duty ziploc bag and sturdy wooden box. All that for a mere $9.

I'm not a huge fan of SB just because of the price.

Tequila sunrise, i tried once, I have to go back and re-try it.
Gummy bears is pretty good.
x on the beach is ok- not amazing like everyone thought it was
chocomint is ok as well-

Just way to pricey for what you get in my opinion.

AF does just as well for clouds and duration, while having better flavor. Not to mention its cheaper.

I got my 1st Sb's a while ago and i have to say, while i enjoyed them, they were nothing extraordinary. I think the only flavours up to now that are a 10/10 for me are
AF : grape, watermelon and grenadine is close.
Nakhla : madarin and sweet melon
Fuson : guava
Alajamy : strawberry ( more like candy strawberry but taste awesome)
Fumari : prickly pear (the same fruit as cactus pear)


i've smoked SB Blue mist and white peach up to now and am not amazed. I hope irish cream will do the trick.

Cheers

SB and some of the other candy-style shisha seemed to be good introductory smokes. Blue Mist was pretty tasty, but eventually I wanted to move onto something a little less sickly.

I am also sick of the overly sweet starbuzz flavors. the blue mist and cir=trus mist are just too much for me, and I am SO glad i only bought a 100 of citrus mist. I'm gonn atry out the coconut and see how that is.
