Default Al Fakher - What is your favorite?

OK, need a little help, cuz I am considering ordering one tub of Al Fakher. If you could only pick ONE (1) flavor of Al Fakher. Which one would it be?

On a side note: How is there Mango?

Mango is good, not sweet - real fruit tasting. I did a video review. It's ok, but unless you love Mango, I'd pass.

In Golden flavor: Bri or Esk apple - a must!
In standard: Mint... great by itself and mixes well with EVERYTHING.

I'm hoping the store by me gets some of the new flavors soon - I want to try the cinnamon and berry, bad!

I like their Cola, it smells weird but it tastes pretty good. It rates up there with the Layalina Cola that I love.

Sift Black is the best flavour hands down.

Whoa, I went looking for AF Soft Black (cause I swore I saw it on HC once before) and.... I can't find it ANYWHERE - not even the new AFonline site. They have Arc Sous, but I have no idea if it's the same thing.

A google search did't provide much help either as the few places that offered it were out of stock or had no descriptions.

Is it traditional tobacco flavor or something like Black licorice?

Ark Sous is fantastic (both the old and new blend) as they use very quality Oriental style tobaccos and very nice licorice flavour. Soft black is even better, as it's just rich, dark high quality Oriental and Burley style tobacco with a very nice cut and almost no stems. Both are a bit dry for my tastes so I mix in a half teaspoon of glycerin with each bowl. The best stuff I've ever bought.

I wish someone said Grape! cuz I just ordered some ... sounded too good to pass up, I guess it is their number one flavor, best seller! So I am looking forward to it ...

Still looking for what your favorites are though!

Would also like to know what you think of the Grape, if you have tried it?

I would also like to try some samples of the Cinnamon and Berry! They both sound really good!

Grape was alright, not my favorite, but a good smoke nonetheless

Think Welch's Grape Juice, not grape jolly rancher

Well, I'm planning on stopping by the local store that sells AF this weekend, to see if they got in the Berry or Cinnamon - Probably hand out some samples if they do.

I tried Grape once, wasn't overly impressed, but Grape isn't my thing - I want to try the Strawberry, even although it seems "middle of the road".

I would love to try the Cinnamon and the Berry, but I would like to try the Cinnamon over the Berry.

Ohhh no, you guys are making the Grape sound "Not so good", I will give it a shot though, cuz I really liked the Nakhla Grape.

I have to be honest, I didn't like the Strawberry enough to buy it again, kinda had a little coconut taste in it was kindof a weird blend!? However, it was a sample pack, so maybe the tub is better!? I won't know until I try it again...

From what I have read - yes, that's what many people tasted. But, they stated it was more with Golden Strawberry, but I don't mind - I love coconut!

Ok, here's a question for anybody who's bought AF recently - the last 250g tub i bought (MINT), looked "normal" on the outside, but on the inside of the box, the "al fakher" printed on the inside (background) was spelt - Al fakhir...

Does this mean it's the "fake" version or the real one?

No, slight differences, but they are there. The "mint leaves" are different as well as the packaging. Plus the hookah looks different and on the wrong side.

Mine looks real on the outside of the box & on the tub, plus from what I've heard the gold bag the shisha is in is supposed to mark it as real...

It's just the "al fakhir" printed on the inside of the box (almost like a watermark on the cardboard) that made me stop and wonder. I WISH I had kept the box - I was gonna email AFOnline and ask.
