The first is what I recieved a couple o fmonths ago. The second is what I recieved just a week ago. Notice a couple of things, the shinny little circle on the second box, little differences in the outside box. Packaging was different too. What is most important is the difference in quality of smoke and the difference in feel and structure of shisha too. The one with the see through packaging "second one" tastes better and smokes better. The one that I just got recently is not as good. What do u think? Hey, I also bought the double apple and noticed the differences. I contacted SouthSmoke and they told me it is authentic and that Al-Fakher was bought out by someone else 6 months ago. SouthSmoke seems to be using a new distributer as well. SouthSmoke told me it could be a different batch of shesha! (I don't buy the last part). All I know is that the shesha is not as good as it used to be... Anything out there that is similar to the old double apple? Yea, get the ones in a tub I havent had any probs at all I hope SouthSmoke start carrying the one "in a tub". I really miss the old double apple Where do you get the one "in a tub" ?
