    I know- I have no idea how this got so out of hand. This blew way out of proportion.

LOL Starbuzz is not based on starbucks it derived from resources I don't know if I'm allowed to reveal but aside from that-Starbucks is the one getting calls from customers looking for Starbuzz believe it or not...they even offered SB $ to change the name besides SB colors are completely different, other than the name, they obviously have nothing else in common. However, back to the Fusion topic, they full on swooped the identical name and advertising ploy as well as the packaging, all accept for the tin cans. I never said it was. On the other hand, if I named my company "Marlburro" people would go "Rip-off"! Starbuzz is so close to Starbucks, what can you expect? Whether that was anybody's intention. Some real nice guys wanted to package Tangiers in little cans and call it "Taso" or something remarkably close to "Tazo" , Starbuck's brand of tea. It would have been an indirect rip-off of Starbuzz, so I wasn't thrilled about the idea (although their designs were fabulous). And no, I don't believe, frankly, that Starbuck's gets calls asking for Starbuzz. That would imply people who want to smoke your brand are stupid. It sounds like shameless self-promotion" at any rate! You know what- that of course does not imply such a thing and it is in fact true. Anyone can call up 411 ask for Starbuzz and the operator connects them to Starbucks. It doesn't mean the customers are stupid. Just because you are in competition with Starbuzz does not mean you have to knock it... THAT is indeed a "shameless self-promotion"- infact..SHAMEFUL I am not SB and do not necessarily represent SB, I just speak the truth and seeing as how you target my comments with hostility in every blog it seems as though you harbor some toward SB. SB does not badmouth other brands they do their own thing, put out their product and let the customers decide and the only things I said were to set the record straight

There are no girls have you gone on the site lately? Yeah, I just looked a while ago. Click on any of the different hookahs and there are models posing with the hookahs. Sorry...still don't see them..but anyway the point is to sell the product not the girls, we weren't really going for a flashy look- modest yet enticing but we never really finished the project- we had alot of really good ideas- but there were more pressing matters at hand Haha I'm sorry but the "oh please!" from Fizzgig was right lol

So in case you were wondering "Who the heck is this chick and what authority does she have to say such things???" Ah, yes. I believe it was Thomas Jefferson who wrote extensively on the subject of the responsibilities and authority held by spokes models. Welcome to the board Queeny. And then what I said after that was that I'm not just one of those girls- I actually know what I'm talking about! Thanx for the welcome, as for everyone else....

    Not to bring up more drama..I'm just asking, but did Smiley edit his comment? I know for sure it didn't say "good job" before otherwise there would be no point for my comment..now it sounds out of place and out of line, but I asure you it had a place at one time and that it wasn't just some bitchy comment With that said- Smiley- apology accepted and I meant nothing by my comments either, just setting the record straight!

This was the first poster, kind of a Tester...the designer/printer was working out some kinks, expect to see alot more from Starbuzz in the future and of much better quality...we've been having some design problems as of late, but believe me, the problems are not on Starbuzz's end.
