Default A great decision to be made

I am going to be placing an order soon. I have consulted a lot of you guys and have decided that I will be making an order on H-S for their deal of three packs of tangiers and a pack of coals.

Cocoa
Lucid Watermelon
Iced Peach Tea

And a box of coals... I am just not sure what coals to get.

My lazy friends would want me to spend the extra money to get QLs.
I want to try a good natural like Coco-nara and Exotica...
We all throw money in but I always end up paying the majority...

Any suggestions?

Coco-Nara. the peeps above have probably never tried coco-nara.
They will blow you away.
Plus... the exotica's i got from H-s.com smelled like burning asshole mixed with piss and gasoline. Plus, coconara's are better for the environment.

Exoticas get my vote. I have used coco-naras and they aren't the magical product some say they are.

What would you light these natural charcoal with? Coconaro's take a while to light but are def worth it..

Is all the tangiers your getting from the Lucid line? Good choices But you should sub the watermelon for Horchata! Cocoa + Horchata = HEAVEN!

They will be lit on the stove.

No the cocoa and the iced peach tea are classic noir style tangiers. I was ordering the watermelon lucid because I wanted to grab one I knew I could smoke fairly soon after getting the order. Although now I am really tempted by horchata because one of my friends who always helps out with the purchases but rarely likes the flavors really liked Romman cinnamon...

I would say order from HookahCompany cause they are cheaper altogether.
And they have a different version of Coconut Coal that is just as good as any coal out there, for 10 bucks!

So you will save money. The amount you save on shipping from HC will offset the cost of you buying Exoticas from H-S.

Coco naras aren't half bad. I recommend trying them. I still prefer exoticas over them but I can honestly say they are even in comparison in my books.

I really would love to but with the package deal I can get three 250 packs of tangiers and a box of coco-naras for 45 before shipping. At hookah company buying the same but replacing the coco-nara with the HC coco coals would be 52 bucks before shipping.

Edit and follow up:

After shipping and discounts
HC $50.43
H-S $46.29

No lucid in the HC cart since it cost more and the H-S cart horchata lucid since it's the same price as classic.

I could lower the H-s cart more by replacing the cocos with exotica also.

Go with H-S.com. Coco-naras are great coals. plus, their prices for lucid is pretty DAMN good.

Nope...not even. They are not as dense and don't break cleanly.

But I love my cocoa... I might want to set up a trade....

I will be nice though and tell you that there is cocoa in the discount section on H-S. It's leaky packaging apparently but I've ordered discount al waha and it was not too bad.

For an update I did make the order and I decided on coco-nara. Classic cocoa and iced peach tea along with a lucid horchata. I can't wait.
