Shisha Review Day 196: iPuff - Arctic Blast - Hookah Tobacco


Our Comments

iPuff seems to kind of been on a down trend on the last few flavors and unfortunately, this one didn't help them much.

I completely agree with the review that the customer made on Hookah-Shisha.com. I taste a mint flavor that is reminiscent of Starbuzz's Mint Colossus, with a fraction of the strength, and nothing else. No mango flavor to speak of at all.

I think it would be pretty acceptable if it was just billed as a mint flavor, but being as that they said there should be a mango tone, I'm forced to look for one and mark it down for not finding one.  --Steve

Other Reviews

  • "I picked up an 100 gram pack of Arctic Blast out of curiosity of the new brand - The flavor is advertised as mango and mint - The mint was predominant and reminded me of Starbuzz Bold Mint Colossus, a mediocre mint flavor in my opinion and the mango was either absent or completely unfamiliar to me - Overall, I thought it was interesting, but disappointing, for the mango was what i was looking forward to" -Hookah-Shisha.com Customer Review

365 Days of Shisha Menu | May, 2013


May's Daily Flavor Menu is here!  This month's lineup includes Non-Tobacco flavors from Zero, a new Starbuzz Bold Flavor (Green Savior) and a few selections from a new brand we've never tried before (Pharaoh's).  We're still making our way through all the Fantasia & iPuff Tobacco Flavors too so we're sure to have a number of items you'll love!


About 365 Days of Shisha

Beginning July, 2012 we will be sampling dozens of brands and hundreds of flavors and letting customers smoke them at our Toledo, Ohio location.  The only catch is that we’re asking anyone who wants to sample these with us (whether they want to try it before they buy it or they just have an adventurous spirit) to please fill out our tiny, little, easy, fast, simple comment cards.  We'll take your ratings and add them to our database and use that info to generate the ratings and reviews here on our blog.  Yeah, you'll be real live blogger!

You can also rate these flavors once they've been published to the blog by simply clicking the star ratings embedded in the blog post (take a look at any review post and you'll see what I'm talking about).  It doesn't matter if you smoked the shisha here or elsewhere - we'd still LOVE to have your input on these brands and flavors!

Shisha Review Day 195: Starbuzz Exotic - Apple Martini - Hookah Tobacco


Our Comments

 Well, when I saw that Starbuzz's Apple Martini was on the menu for the 365, I wasn't expecting much from it, and I'm sad to say that I wasn't surprised in the least.

I think I'm starting to get a sense of what Starbuzz does and doesn't do well, and as for the latter category, it's usually any shisha that's modeled after an alcoholic drink.

I don't get it. Starbuzz does so many things right, but I don't get how they just can't get cocktail flavors right. Apple martini just seems to taste like a light artificial apple flavor from a county fair snowcone and nothing else. Most of what Starbuzz produces has a very bold quality to the flavor, but this one is severely lacking. --Steve

Shisha Review Day 194: Fantasia - Jack and Coke - Hookah Tobacco


Our Comments

HEY! Fantasia finally produced an alcoholic drink based shisha that ISN'T good! Yay!... Ok, let's just dive right into this piece of crap. Initially, this shisha had a light taste of cola that was reminiscent of the taste you get from those gummi cola bottles you might remember from childhood. It was actually pretty enjoyable for the first ten minutes, but then things went south. Shortly into the next ten minutes, an offensive cardboard taste began to overwhelm the flavor as the cola taste faded away and also an odd butter tone started to creep in as well. Buttery Cardboard....not even kidding... then after that ten minutes, the flavor just seemed to fade away entirely.

Needless to say... I wouldn't recommend this to anyone, except for people I hated. Do I hate you? If so, smoke this shisha. --Steve

  • "Taste was very dim and it was rather aftertaste. I was surprised, because the smell was a mega intesive. Tasted like the smell, perhaps with less hint of alcohol, but it was palpable. I am not shocked the taste is ok, but there's no shock." -Shisha-Forum.co.uk User Review
  • "The taste is mostly coke with a hint of jack, but the jack isn't that accurate. It's a really good flavor, gotta give Fantasia props for making this flavor, but it's not my cup of tea." -RoyalHookahForum.com User Review

Shisha Review Day 193: iPuff - H20 Melon - Hookah Tobacco


Our Comments

iPuff claims that this is the flavor of summer, but if that's the case, then summer must be the most forgettable season of all. Simply put, this sucks. The flavor of iPuff's H2O Melon is almost non-existant. You will find a very vague taste of watermelon in this shisha and nothing more. Trust me, this will feel like weak sauce to any smoker. Don't bother, folks.   --Steve

Shisha Review Day 192: Starbuzz Exotic - Blackberry - Hookah Tobacco


Our Comments

It seems to me that there really aren't that many great blackberry shishas on the market currently, so I was very happy to see that Starbuzz has yet again made a great shisha that stands out from the competition. Starbuzz doesn't always make great flavors, but the vast majority of their products are great and I'm very happy that this one is a part of that majority.

This shisha carries a great texture, solid cloud, good longevity, the only drawback to this flavor is the timing. The timing is off do to the fact that I've already tried Fumari's Blackberry, and it's still the best in comparison. So to wrap up, I'd still spend my money on Fumari, but this is still a very good blackberry flavor. --Steve

Shisha Review Day 191: Starbuzz Exotic - Passion Fruit Mojito - Hookah Tobacco


Our Comments

With a name like Passion Fruit Mojito, you'd expect it to have a little bit of a Mojito quality to the flavor, but sadly, I find that to be kind of lacking in this shisha. Starbuzz has made a pretty decent passion fruit flavor that has a touch of citrus in the mix, but there's almost no mint at all, and I think that definitely is a key component to a mojito. So I'd have to give this one a low grade in my book. -Steve

Other Reviews

  • "The flavor was really good and was easy to taste. To me though, there was nothing fruity about it… it was more like a bunch of spices than anything else. Good tasting spices. The buzz, as with most Starbuzz, was very strong and came pretty quickly compared to other brands of shisha." -TheHookahMonster.com
  • "This is an alright blend with a lil Cool in it I love it its proper good for when frens are around good taste ima give it a figure 8" -HookahCompany.com
  • "Although it is an older flavor, Passion fruit Mojito is one of the most popular flavors of the Starbuzz Tobaccos. The smell of it is very minty with a sort of tropical fruit and sweet lime flavor because of the mojito aspect. When you smoke it, your taste changes and the shisha becomes very unique. It has a very sweet and tangy flavor to it along with a minty mojito taste when you blow in." -MaharajaHookah.com

Shisha Review Day 190: iPuff - Sinful - Hookah Tobacco


Our Comments

Well, if this is what being sinful tastes like, then what classifies as being sinful must be VERY vague. iPuff's Sinful is a shisha that has a very soft and faint fruit tone with something that seems to represent itself as coconut-like flavor. While being a fairly pleasant flavor, the low strength of the flavor is a major letdown in my mind. I really wouldn't recommend that anyone blow their money on this one. -Steve

Shisha Review Day 189: Fantasia - Million Dollar Flavor - Hookah Tobacco


Our Comments

Well, Fantasia's famed "Million Dollar Flavor" is today's flavor... Well after smoking it, I'm not sure it's worth more than a couple of bucks. Hookah-Shisha's sales pitch of a review described it as tasting like a cherry Dr.Pepper kind of flavor.

While I taste something that vaguely resembled that, I couldn't put a finger on it until I read that review, so I feel like it's a fail in that regard. Call me closed minded if you want, but I feel like a good shisha should be bold in it's flavor and clearly come forward to show me what it's all about. If I don't find a good impression of the flavor, I won't be impressed.

So that being said, I don't find this to be a terrible shisha, but it definitely didn't impress me. -Steve

  • "Fantasia $1,ooo,ooo Dollar Flavor (a.k.a. The Million Dollar Flavor) smells a lot like a cherry Dr. Pepper, but I’m pretty sure there’s more to this flavor than what meets the olfactory senses. There seems to be an underlying ingredient toying with us beneath the cherries. When I smoked Million Dollar Flavor I got a sweet cherry Dr. Pepper sundae vibe. You may even think it tastes like cake! I’ve even heard people compare Fantasia Million Dollar Flavor to a cherry bubble gum or gummy bear, and that opinion is hard to argue with. It’s unique. It’s Fantasia quality smoke and flavor and you won’t be disappointed. This one may be hard to mix with, but I’m sure a few of you out there will find something that goes great with it." -Hookah-Shisha.com (if you feel like you walked onto a used car lot after reading that review, you're not alone.)
  • "Positives:Interesting, dark, creamy flavor. Negatives:Can't quite describe the flavor." -HookahRev.com
  • "Great smoke, still trying to put my finger on it, but it essentially tastes like Mike & Ikes! Great smoke, not too sweet, and great thick smoke even out of an egyptian bowl! Loses flavor around 30 minute mark in an egyptian, loses flavor around the hour mark in a Small Funnel bowl" -HookahCompany.com Customer Review

Shisha Review Day 188: iPuff - Just Peachy - Hookah Tobacco


Our Comments

Wow, what a let down! iPuff is starting to get a very mixed reputation for me. It seems like you'll try one flavor from them and it'll be awesome and then the next one will suck. Well....this one sucks.

This one had some real potential from the aroma, but the flavor is totally lackluster. The taste has a very vague hint of the wonderful quality of the aroma but just enough to tease you and make you dream of what could have been. Overall, the flavor is a very weak peach tone along with occasional harshness.

Honestly, unless you're the type of person that likes to hang out with members of the opposite sex that are WAY out of your league just to fantasize about what I would be like to get what you can never have, then you probably would hate this smoking experience.--Steve
