The Top Five Worst Hookah Flavors of All Time

There's always one. You read the title, and immediately thought of a specific flavor. There's no question. Everyone has a least favorite flavor, and there may be some that even make them sick. For as many great flavors as there are on the market, there are still many bad ones floating around. Everyone's palates are different, so it's no surprise that not everyone can agree on just one 'worst flavor of all time', so today I'm going to be going over my top five worst hookah flavors of all time. And as I just said, everyone has a different palate, so don't be surprised if your favorite flavor makes the list! 

#5.  Al Fakher Cola

Ah yes, Cola, one of the most refreshing drinks on the planet. Think about everything that you know and love about that flavor, and imagine the polar opposite of it. That's AF Cola. It's a garbled mess of nastiness that leaves you wondering... why? What kind of cola is AF drinking? Don't pick this up in more than a 50g, unless you're sadistic, and like making your friends try bad things. 

#4. Nakhla Mix - Shisha On The Beach

Paint a picture in your head for me. You're sitting on the beach. It's nice and warm out, and your skin is glistening after just getting out of the water. You sit down to relax, and you've got a delicious mixed beverage beside you. You take a sip, and it's delicious - refreshing, tasty, and just that nice little bite of coconut rum makes it all the better. Set it down, and you pick up the sun tan lotion that you had sitting beside it. Then take it, pack the sun tan lotion into a bowl, and smoke that. That's pretty much what Nakhla Shisha on the Beach tastes like. It's a fun flavor to trick your friends into thinking you're about to have a good time.

#3. Al Fakher Fruit Cocktail

When making this list, it seemed like the easy way out to just pick some of the lesser known AF flavors, since they seem to have more than a dozen or so bad ones. However, I decided to only include these two. Fruit Cocktail is much like if you were to smoke chapstick. No, not the delicious and flavored chapstick from Burts Bees. Just... generic and flavorless chapstick. It's not even a subtle chapstick flavor, it's a very powerful and disgusting smoke. This is one of my absolute worst experiences in hookah, pretty much period. Just... don't. 

#2. Fantasia - Ice Mint

I'm a mint fanatic - I've tried almost every mint to hit the market so far. So don't take it lightly when I say that Fantasia Ice Mint is seriously the absolute worst mint flavor in existence. I feel like it also could've been cheating if I just listed the entire Fantasia lineup here, since they don't have a single good flavor, however, I felt that Ice Mint was a personal offense to mint lovers like myself, so I wanted to make sure to tell you that if there's one mint you never try, it's this one. Imagine if you took a menthol burst cigarette, and just put the menthol into your bowl. That's Ice Mint. It's nasty, and the flavor only lasts about 30 minutes at absolute best. Do yourself a favor, and just pick up some Pure FML Green instead. 

#1. Tangiers - Bacon

I think this is pretty much a given for anyone that was around to try Tangiers attempt at a bacon flavor, or even anyone that's heard the horror stories from those that were lucky enough to try it for themselves. As I'm not someone who was lucky enough to try it, I'll give you the testament of someone who did. Steven Dean, Hookah Enthusiast admin and pro memer, described it as this: "It tasted like regurgitated dog food basically... like something that my dog would've puked up." I think that speaks for itself. Part of me thinks that Tangiers did this as a joke... but you never know. Needless to say, it wasn't something that needed to stay on as their regular rotation. 

Overall

Please never buy any of the flavors that I listed here. There are plenty more that almost made the cut, but these are my top five never put this garbage in your bowl flavors. Unless you're sadistic, and hate yourself and your friends, these flavors are just... bad. Anyway, hopefully you enjoyed the list, don't forget to tune in next week for our interview with renowned hookah manufacturer Shishabucks! As always guys, thanks so much for reading, and happy smokes!
