50g is great for testing flavors out. When I fist started I would buy 10 or 15 50g packs of different brands until I found what I liked. Now I buy in 250g usually. Starbuzz even seens 100g which is a little cheaper then their 250g. If you know the flavors you like I would suggest 250g tubs.

If I read enough positive reviews on a flavor I'm curious about, I'll definitely buy a 250gm tub. When I want to get an overall feel for a brand, I buy sample bundles.

I buy 50 grams in Romman and Fantasia. Romman cause it only needs to be packed in fluffy to last a good 2 hours and Fantasia cause it's damn expensive and my friend love the Lemonades.

I buy 250's very rarely, but will soon be buying a 250 of Romman Turkish Coffee.

Im trying lots of different flavs right now in the 50g. I wish more brands would do this, just because if I don't like a flavor, I don't want to be stuck with 200+ grams of it...

i find myself getting more and more 50g just because i like changing and trying new flavors as much as possible. In the long run when you find out what your personal basts are then you invest in bigger sizes.

I think 250g is my favorite. They always seem to last a while, and if you buy some new stuff you can put it in the collection. It was so awesome when I had like 10 flavors to choose from.

What I've been doing lately is buying two or three 50g and mixing them together. 1.99 for a 50g of cheap shit, mix it all together, and I always can get pretty good blends. Orange-vanilla-mint is pretty damn good, so is kiwi-strawberry plus a little bit of mango.

I always find the best purchases though if you go the good quality like pharaohs and just smoke what they have. MMM.

I started out with the 50gms but now just go right for the 250gms unless it is a REALLY new flavor that doesn't have any reviews. BUT starting out, I think 50gms is the way to go to try a lot of different flavors to see what you might like.

Cheers!

it depends on price, like for nakhla it's only like 6 more dollars to get a 250 tub so I go straight with that, I've never bought a kilo of anything besides AF vanilla, because usually when im mixing flavors I always add it.
