Default another af grape post

couldnt find one near the top to add to, but one of my friends just ordered a nice syrian hookah and one of the flavors he got was af grape. it did not smell like ketchup and he said it tasted amazing. what was the verdict on this grape situation? has anybody gotten a bad batch lately?

I have received 3 50 grams from various places and 1 200 gram from Mr.Bungle, all have been fine. Only they have the new cut and do not smoke well here for whatever reason...

i got a 50g from mar 08, it had the "ketchup" smell (not to sure if that is the best name for it). i aired it out for a long time (probably pushing 12 hours now) and its just getting less smell ingeneral so meh, call it a flop and order more later)

I recently got 2 50g boxes of AF grape. They were from March 08 if I remember correctly. They did have the "Ketchup" smell, but it didn't come through on the flavor. I let them air out for a couple of hours and most of the "ketchup" smell is gone.

Still tasted great to me, I've never had the regular non-"ketchup" type to compare it to.

I mixed this grape with mint and it was fantastic!

I plan to get a tub of grape AF eventually. Definitely taking MrBungle's advice on where to order it.. I must find out how special this flavor really is..and hopefully it won't have a ketchup smell.

The problem has defintely been fixed.
When you order some just ask the vendor to make sure that prod. date is April 08 or newer.

I had a tub of April 08 and it was grapelicous.
