Ok so I haven't seen any reviews of this brand here. Has anyone used it? What are your thoughts? I have read elsewhere that it is pretty good and one of my local stores carries it. I am just wondering if it is worth a try.

You mean these? Well at least it answers my question. No one here has tried it. All anyone says is it is a Starbuzz knock off. A quick google search shows that it is made by Al Amir according to several reviews I have seen it probably is a Starbuzz knock off but does a nice job of imitating them. There are several rumors around the various forums apparently that it comes froma guy that used to work for Starbuzz and left the company. It sounds very much to me like an urban legend based around the similarities but whose to say whether it is grounded in reality or not. It apparently used to be called Skybuzz. I may pick some up since the stores here have Skyzz but don't have Starbuzz.

Hi Fezz,

We have tried it and decided not to carry it for a few reasons: The flavor was inconsistent, the cut was sloppy and the price was much to high for the product.

Skyzzz has spent most of its money on marketing the product as a SB knockoff with a tin can and similar labeling.

Basically, you get what you expect from a knockoff. Except the knockoff price. If someone was selling it to price compete with Nakhla, for instance, then it would be worth a try.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
Mike

Steer clear of Skyz, they are a SB knockoff that is waaaaaay overpriced and very inconsistent.
