HookahJohn.com Revises Alien-Mini Phunnel Bowl

If you’re a fan of the original phunnel bowls, you will not be disappointed with this one. But keep in mind, because of subtle adjustments to the shape and design, as well as variations in craftsmanship, you might need to adjust your packing and foiling technique. So should you upgrade? Maybe. It’s going to be a matter of preference. If you find your current Alien Phunnel bowl wanting, you might find this updated version to be a mark improvement. But if you’re quite satisfied with your current Alien Phunnel bowl, you might want to wait until a drunken party guest knocks your bowl off the table.

Fusion Chocolate Mint

Chocolate Mint is, in a word, unbelievable. While there are many Chocolate Mint flavors on the market, none has managed to capture my attention like Fusion’s attempt. The flavor, and the aroma, are exactly as the title suggests—chocolate mint. The mint, while distinct, is not overpowering. It won’t clear your sinuses. And the chocolate is a sweet, chocolate cake flavor. Unlike other brands where the chocolate flavor is more like a protein shake, Fusions chocolate is much more realistic.

Social Smoke Mojito

Mojito is a lime-citrus and mint blend with another subtle flavor to mimic the sensation of alcohol in the back of your throat. It really does very much resemble an actual mojito beverage. However, in its smoking form, the comparison is somewhat lost. The mint is very well hidden in this flavor—almost invisible. and the lime flavor is mild. What you’re left with is an easy to smoke, subtle semi-sweet citrus flavor that tastes a lot like a mojito if you know that’s what it’s supposed to taste like.

Al Fakher Two Apples

Two Apples has a rich, complex anis flavor. When smoking for the first time, you will likely notice a licorice sensation thanks to the anis. But a more careful examination of the flavor will reveal undertones of spice and cinnamon, mingled with subtle apple tastes. It’s necessary to exhale through both your mouth and nostrils to fully appreciate Two Apples flavor, though either one in isolation is pleasant. As with most anis flavors, the sensation is dark and warming—not refreshing like a real apple.

Starbuzz White Peach

The aroma and flavor of White Peach match almost exactly. And, unlike most tobacco, the flavor is nearly spot on. The peach taste is not a caricature of the real fruit and it’s not a candy version. Rather, the taste very closely mimics that of a sweet, ripe peach. Many who have sat down to smoke White Peach point out the flavor immediately without being told what it is. The taste is both sweet (though not sickly so) and refreshing—much like the real thing. The flavor also accurately mimics the juicy sensation of a real peach. Don’t be surprised to actually begin salivating between draws.

Social Smoke Lime

Social Smoke Lime has a clear citrusy lime taste. There is a hint of tartness that accompanies the smoke, as well as a subtle mint flavor which only appears toward the end of a draw and affects the back of the throat most clearly. The taste may more accurately be likened to a glass of cold limeade, though just barely sweetened.
