Exclamation Looking for the best of the least

[FONT="Century Gothic"]Thanks to hookahpro and the vast amount of knowledge you people have instilled in me, I've been able to educate alot of ignorant people about hookahs and the cultures they come from.

Unfortunately, that knowledge changes nothing when faced with a tobacco free campus(that I'm hardly on the border of) So, here's where I find myself:
- I keep the hookahs if i only use herbal-

that being said, I've scoured the review threads and found three main brands of varied potential: Soex, HHBlackLabel and Saalaam

the question I'd like to pose is: which flavors of these are the best and are there any other brands I've not heard of? ANY assistance is appreciated

Saalaam Spiced Chai is great. I haven't tried any other flavors from them but I hear good things. I didn't care for Black Label. I tried butterscotch and it was pretty bad.

Any flavor by Saalaam. Also, I hear the new Herbal stuff at Hookah-Shisha called "Hydro" is pretty good.

So what are the repercussions of using tobacco on a tobacco free campus?

I have a little clout but for first offenses it's pretty much just a warning. I'm a member of our student council thought so I have to "set an example"

I have not gotten to try it yet, and unfortunately I don't think I'm planning on it anytime soon.

It's only 3 bucks though.

I have tried most of the Saalaam flavors, and all have been better then most tobacco I have smoked.

I have tried some soex and did not like it at all.
I also tried Black Herbal, can't remember which flavour. But this was not as good as well, the flavour was gone real quick.

I rather stick to the normal tobacco.

We have another brand called 'High Life' in the UK but I haven't tried it. I liked the Soex Choco Mint though, haven't tried many others

That pretty much sucks, but anyway if I had to choose between soex and black I would go for black any day. I just thinks soex is sh*t...

I would not suggest Soex. It is horrible. I tried it and never smoke it again. I hear Black Label isn't that bad.

Saalaam Tiramisu (did a video review on it) and Saalaam Key Lime Pie are good!

They'd have to make a new rule for herbal tobacco as well then. In rulebooks, it NEVER states "No smoking of herbal blends" .

get the tobacco and dispose of the box, keep it in a ziplock and have a few herbal boxes around so theyll believe you
