when unsure of any flavor 50g packs are your friend, no major commitment. af has some 30 flavors or so and some sell more than others. i'm surprised that some flavors actually sell at all, it goes to show that everyone has their own tastes, so don't be afraid to try them all 50g at a time.

from my experiences ive had hit and miss on buying full packs, even when i think i like a flavor in 50g then i get the 250 and smoke a few bowls i dont like it as much any more. the 50 grams are your friend unless its something that you know you will like... like mint

No, it's not. fennel is Foeniculum vulgare and anise is Pimpinella anisum and they are vary different in taste, look and habitat.

These days real anise is starting to become something of a rarity as food/drug/beverage processors have discovered that it's cheaper to use
Illicium verum (star anise or "star spice") grown with slave labour in China. While star anise and the real thing have simelar tastes I garauntee that everyone here can tell the difference between the two if given the chance to do a side by side comparision.
