A few weeks ago we reviewed Moon’s 1 1/4″ unbleached rolling papers and thought they were perfectly acceptable even though we hadn’t heard of the company before.
Today we’re checking out some of their flavoured papers which come in number of different types including apple, banana, chocolate, mint, orange and strawberry. However currently these are only available in 1 1/4″ size (no regular or king) so we went with the apple.
I want to see if these burn better or worse then just a rolling paper without any coating.
QUALITY OF CONSTRUCTION
Historically I’ve never enjoyed flavoured wraps because I find that companies tend to use thicker paper which doesn’t burn well.
However just like their unbleached 1 1/4″ we were pleasantly surprised by how evenly these papers smoked. They’re made from 14 GSM slow-burning white paper that measures 77mm x 44mm and features natural Arabic gum instead of artificial glue. Plus, instead of just being plain and boring white they went ahead and added little apple graphics.
EASE OF USE
Rolling with these is neither harder or easier when you compare to similar sized papers.
These are a tad thicker then Moon’s unbleached 1 1/4″ but the difference is pretty tiny so ultimately it’s going to come down to your skills as a roller. If you already know how to spin up a solid bat then you’ll have no issues with these, but if you don’t know how to roll then don’t expect these to make the process any easier.
Another thing to note is how the thicker paper affects the burning… these use a thicker paper which can sometimes be challenge and result in uneven burning when you smoke.
Moon sells these Apple 1 1/4″ rolling papers in boxes of 20 booklets with each booklet containing 40 leaves.
In terms of overall value, that really comes down to you as an individual and the types of joints you like to roll most often. If you’re someone who likes spicing things up with some extra flavours in your sessions then you’ll probably be right at home with these papers. However if you prefer the unaltered experiences of the flower and don’t want artificial secondaries clouding things up then you’ll probably want to avoid and stick to standard or unbleached.
