Default vendor question to the HP community

Hi Guys,
I wanted to get your opinions on if I should carry Fantasia. I;m willing to stock what sells but they are selling their product for $18.99 (retail) for 200g. Are you guys willing to pay that and how many of you have tried it? I read the reviews section here and it seems like it is all over the place. At those prices it's more than SB. I want to make it so we have all products available here, but I don't want to sell/junk.
Thanks,
John

I'd say yes...But to tell the truth... Fantasia isn't the best tobacco imo and its total BS that Fantasia is trying to make all vendors put that price up.

Maybe you should only put up 50gram boxes and see how it sells?

Only a couple of flavors are good, thats pretty expensive! I see people sqwaking about it already, seems like a risky move to me.

I wouldn't buy it. Fantasia burns quicker than paper. If the price changes back to 13 bucks, i'd probably buy it then.

Yeh I would definatly approach with caution. You don't want to end up with a whole bunch a shish that you bought and it aint selling. 50g boxes might be a safe bet. I know I love the fantasia blueberry and margarita though MMM MMM MM.

So far I only really like 2 flavors, pink lemonade and caramel frappucino. However, for the higher price, I would not pay. I would stick to AF (and SB I guess though I haven't tried it yet.)

if you do stock it though, just go for the 50g boxes of pink lemonade, and like 4 other top flavors.

I've smoked Fantasia's Cotton Candy, Margarita, Wild Mango, and Blue Berry. They are decent flavors but not for $18.99 a 200g. I heard that some vendors are selling 50g boxes for $4 or $5, which is still a little steep in my opinion.

I'd give it a pass, you have good stuff now and I hear you're adding Tangiers so you should be set.

I know a lot of folks like the Pink Lemonade, but I find it very odd tasting. The 200g instead of 250g also kinda blows.

Blueberry and Pink Lemonade are good but with the recent price hike it isn't worth it IMO. Fantasia will be/ is more expensive than Starbuzz and that's outrageous IMO. I like Fusion it's cheaper and better than SB or Fantasia.

thanks guys for all the responses, i may carry a couple of flavs but I really like being able to carry yje whole line like af and laaline, sb is too hard bc there are 70+ flavors but I have more than half. 5 flavors of Tanjiers in a couple of days will be the new thing for now. Let me know if there are any other brands worth carrying, like fusion, etc.
Thanks
John

That price seems high, and I wouldn't pay that much for 200gms. I think Starbuzz has better flavors and is worth the cost. I like AF for the price .. and they have some good flavors too!

NO!

That shit.. it's beyond words. The people who smoke it can smoke something else. Fantasia the absolutely the MOST AMERICAN shisha I have ever seen in my life. The flavors might be alright, but when the flavors are bad, they are truly BAD. Now Fusion is the worst tobacco ever, it's all chopped up and looked like the chili soup that I threw up last night, that's even worse. Plus, you have to sell it for 18 bucks a 200 and that's just stealing.

Speaking only for myself, since I do not buy for anyone else, I wouldn't touch it. The flavors I have tried were very good but the price is killing it. Back to my example, I would buy two 250s of AF or Layalina from you before shelling out almost the same price for 200gr of one flavor.

Oh man. I will get on my knees a beg for you to carry fusion. It's my favorite brand hands down. I have yet to try to the new batches, but all the stuff i've smoked is VERY good.
And the Lucid line of tangiers too.

Please tell me you confused fusion and fantasia.
All the fusion i have looks like AF with the starbuzz wetness.
And i don't think john has to sell it for 18 bucks...
