What to do about that sweet tooth? Al-Fakher Hookah Tobacco is a name we all know and love for many reasons – four of those reasons are their vanilla infused cream line of shisha including: Strawberry with cream, Orange with cream, Grape with cream, and Mint with cream.
This collection of flavored hookah tobacco is not only sweet but incredibly smooth. Upon opening the package you see the traditional red tinted tobacco with fine cut leaves in plenty of juice. The initial smell of all of these are rather light in comparison to other Al-Fakher flavors, but the cloud production is top notch and leaves you wanting for nothing.
Now for the flavors! Each one of these variations is unique in its own right.
The Strawberry for instance smells like a milkshake. You get a candied strawberry flavor initially that is smoothed out by a creamy vanilla exhale and is reminiscent somewhat to strawberry shortcake.
Much like the strawberry, the Orange with Cream also has a creamy exhale following the initial citrus flavor. You get a nice blast of orange initially followed closely by a buttery vanilla that creates a taste much like a Creamsicle.
Grape with Cream is a little different; it is more subtle on scent than the others – the cream taking a front seat on this one and leaving you with a pleasant exhale infused with grape.
As with the Grape, the Mint is waiting in the background to give you a nice chilly exhale. The Mint with Cream is nothing like Al-Fakher’s traditional mint flavor in regards to the strength of the mint but I found sprinkling a little original mint into the mix gave it that little extra kick when I wanted it.
It is also worth noting that a few drops of vanilla extract in your hookah water does wonders for these types of flavor profiles.
