Default Exotica's Like Cracker Jacks never know what the prize inside is!!!

Hay gang I want to start of by saying Im personaly not trying to bash exotica but i want to make people aware of a problem ive had for a second time. I smoke hookah as a replacement for cigs and its all i smoke once a day during the week and maby a couple times a day on the weekend. I smoke from a hookah cause in my opinion its much more natural and healther than cigs. But I due understand by no means is it without risk but thats why I pay attention to my hookah smoking products to be certian it is the best for me as possiable. Now on to the bad stuff. I usually will sit and cut up a box or 2 of coals every once and a while to eliviate the mess of coal dust and only make the mess once. So tonight i was cutting up my exoticas and found more crap not in just a second box but a third for me now. So im no longer going to use exoticas Im going to attach pictures of more stuff found in my new boxes of exoticas. This is not the first post ive made about this but i think its important for people to pay attention to what they ingest in there body's. PLEASE FOR YOUR HEALTH PAY ATTENTION TO YOU SMOKING PRODUCTS!!!!

Travis

Ps sorry for all the miss spellings my computer wont let me down load the spell checker fo this fourm some reason

I've heard of mold issues regarding exoticas but was under the impression it was external. Hmm, I wonder!

Whoa that's kinda weird.

Maybe the place your getting them from has the old boxes from the bad batches

i personally have never come across problems like THAT lol. Maybe you should email Gabe b/c that is kinda weird and tell him the paint from his easy lites are getting in the naturals.

It kinda looks like the binding on the exoticas. Or they also look like the paint they put on the Exotica easy lites.

Eeek! good thing it was just one bar.

yea, i was thinking that it is the paint from the easy lights. I have a box right next to me and i have to say that they arent too careful of how they put the paint on sometimes.

Thats just plain unlucky, didn't u post something a few months back as well, some sort of wire that you found if i remember correctly.

I also gave up on them a while back cos everytime i go to ash them they break apart into small pieces

But if you get the good batch they are great coals considering the price of them, its a bit like AF

I beleive that some form of gelatin is used as a bonding agent to hold things together, and because gelatin is an organic matter, it would certainly allowfor the growth of mold.

Eh. I think if your box is good, what's the point of throwing 'em out? lol

But anyway, sucks that this happened. I honestly think that the people working at Gabe's factory just don't give a flying **** about how they manage his coals. Poor guy and I hope he gets it all sorted out.

exoticas are for the most part a very good product. I wouldn't go so far as to throw yours out. Especially if they've been good to you thus far.

Last year I was publicly bashed for calling out exotica's, seems as though they are still a sub par product. I am not surprised.

thats saddening, i dont use exoticas any more cause i find the CCN and CH coals easier and more efficient for me and the exoticas left more of a burnt smell in my apartment, but i never had any of these issues.

Well this is over to me im nolonger going to use these coals weather my life depends on it or not. Ive been told if there is no quality controll sticker in the lid there not his coals. Well the ones he sent me arnt his cause there is no sticker even though these are the boxes he sent me after the last incodent and now Gaberial is personally atacking me off sight through e-mail when all i wanted to do is inform him of a problem in his coals and the same with the public so no one became ILL. To all this is over and no need to carry on the choice is obvious. To all smoke at your own risk and good luck.

Dear God. I can't believe people still use these.

Coco Coals FTW. Doesn't even matter what brand, they all kick ass!
