Fumari 'Prickly Pear' Hookah Shisha Tobacco Review Day 11

Our Comments
FUMARI 'PRICKLY PEAR' FLAVOR HOOKAH SHISHA TOBACCOFumari's Prickly Pear tastes exactly as advertised - like a cactus pear.  This is a fruit that has been making strong insurgence into the market as shows like Dr. Oz and others bill it out as a "super fruit."  I love pears but but their relatively subtle flavor makes them a tough sell for shisha.  The aroma of prickly pear is delectable and my mouth literally watered as soon as I opened it.  Many of our reviewers had a similar reaction and we were all very excited to smoke it.  Unfortunately, unlike most Fumari shishas, this one doesn't pack as much of a punch in the flavor spectrum.  It was nice but not what we were all
hoping for.

The smoke clouds and texture were typical of Fumari - extraordinary!  My session itself didn't seem to last as long but that may have just been the understated nature of this product.  I didn't get much of a buzz from this either so I gave it a 1.

Fumari has really set the bar high for themselves and while I didn't rave about his flavor make no mistake; I would smoke Fumari Prickly Pear before the best flavor of many of their competitors. --JP

A little history on the prickly pear cactus: it is a symbol of Aztecan independence (sort of). Actually, it was focal point in their relocation after the Aztecs demanded the hand of marriage from a Culhuacan’s Chief (neighboring city state that they had served as mercenaries for) and then killed her. They didn’t just kill her though, they flayed her. When the Culhuacan’s Chief arrived for the wedding ceremony he found an Aztec priest dancing in his daughters flayed skin. Fighting broke out and the Aztecs were forced to retreat to, what is now, Mexico City. There the Aztec God Huitzilopochtli (God of War) came to priest with a message: seek out a cactus on which a great eagle is perched. This, said the God, was the “place of the Fruit of the Prickly Pear Cactus” and is where the Aztecs established the great empire they are renowned for today
