Maybe is because you bought some AF from the last batch 2007 cause of what I've heard the new batch is great again, specially the grape flavor.

I know, too bad there are people still giving AF grape a chance. I understand sambooka's reasoning. He hasn't ran into a bad batch of it yet, so I could see why he would keep buying it. As for the people who have had 3-5 consecutive bad 250's move on to another grape no need to keep buying the ketchup! . Al Amir white grape is fantastic!

People should continue to "give AF grape a chance"! It is a great flavor.The problem here is that obviously, many people aren't aware of the prod. dates during which the problem(s) occurred.
note: AF grape produced between fall of '07 and jan. 08 has been mentioned to be a problem. So if your gonna buy AF grape get a NEW batch, or an OLD batch!! And if you still don't like it than it's prolly not the flavor for you.

How many chances does a flavor need to get? If people stop buying the crap they will be forced to fix it. Al Amir White Grape is way better than any of the 4 batches of AF Grape I have smoked. It makes no sense to spend money on a maybe good maybe ketchup smoke when you can get a sure thing.

It's very simple. Don't buy the product from the period in question! The new batches are fine. So buy new batches.If people are going to insist on buying products thar are clearly mark w/a date during which you know the production had some issues.Than you get what you deserve.

good point epsilon! I've yet to hear of a bad sample box rearing it's ugly head.maybe next time I'm at my local retailer, I will grab a box from the questionable production date and see for myself.

I've had several bad fifty gram satchets of grape all screw me over.

One was from March 2008. The next from January 2008. The final straw was when I found a shop that carried Al Fakher from January 2007.

I'm not saying I'll stop trying to find a good batch since the fifty gram packs are quite cheap, though.

Al Fakher grape looks like a hit and miss kind of situation. From what everyone is saying there are no certain dates or batches. We only got one complaint so far about the Grape back in February I believe. Contacted Al Fakher via email but no answer ever.

How is the flavor on that one, Martello. Like grape candy or white grapes?

Actually there are. It was primarilly the batches made in the fall/winter of '07 and early '08.

I smoked my first AF grape last night, it was incredible. I plan to get a kilo. . .and hope for the best. If you contact AF directly about rancid ketchup shisha do they do anything about it?

I just got a 250g tub the other night. The only shop in my area only carries a few AF flavors, then all the Laylina stuff. It tasted like a mix of ketchup and rancid double apple.

i actually dont like Af Grape or Grape in general. But when i was in Cairo this summer everyone smokes it they never complained about it. Do u think theres a difference between the batches that go to North Africa and the ones that go to North America??

I don't think there's a difference, honestly.I can't imagine a production facility changing the manufacturing for different markets. But who knows. maybe they made a bad batch and decided to dump it on all of us "kufar al amreeki"! LOL
