If you’ve gotten past the “intro phase” and are a relatively experienced vaper, you’ve undoubtedly experimented with a wide range of e-juice flavors. Beginners often start out with tobacco and menthol varieties and then quickly transition into sweet and fruity blends. Options like RY4 (a tasty combination of caramel, vanilla and tobacco) are a popular choice, and almost every e-juice company offers basic flavors such as: chocolate, cherry, cinnamon and grape. But what about the true “connoisseurs”? Which e-liquid flavors do they prefer? If you’re the type of person who loves to experiment and are constantly searching for richer, more complex varieties, then these creative (and tasty) flavors are likely to strike your fancy.
Described as a creamy custard with a sweet strawberry exhale, Mothers Milk is a signature e-juice from Suicide Bunny that is well-known among the vaping community. Rich, creamy custard with subtle hints of strawberry, it’s often compared to strawberry Nesquick, but much more succulent and delicious! An excellent all-day-vape that’s mildly sweet, super smooth and extra tasty. Be sure to give Mother’s Milk a try!
This descriptive review from Reddit says it all:
Gangbanged my mouth so hard I cried. I like sweet dessert juices. This juice tastes best warm. Exhale through the mouth and you get a strawberry twinky flavor. Exhale through the nose and you get more of a strawberry grahamcracker type flavor. I believe if something deserves recognition, I should give it. 10 out of 10, I would get gangbanged in the mouth again by Mother’s Milk!
It’s safe to say that their first flavor (The Milkman) is the most popular option from The Milkman, but my personal favorite is Churrios. Both are extremely smooth and creamy, but rather than throwing in subtle hints of fruit, Churrios blends lightly sweetened cinnamon with honey cereal in milk. Closely resembling a fried churro dessert, it’s pefectly balanced with just the right amount of cinnamon and subtle sweetness. At Max (99%) VG it’s best used in a RDA or sub-ohm tank, so you might want to consider Cuttwood’s Sugar Bear as a nice 60/40 VG/PG alternative.
One online reviewer had this to say about Churrios:
I’ve heard all the hype about Churrios, so I finally decided to try a bottle. MAN! It is so damn yummy I just bought another 2 bottles! Anyone who says otherwise clearly hasn’t tried it, or has no working taste buds left. To me it’s like biting into a hot fluffy churro at Disneyworld. You get that very specific taste of freshly fried dough with powdered sugar and cinnamon sprinkled on top, finished off with a nice bit of creaminess. BAM… thats churrios. Love it, love it, love it!
So it’s only sold in large 180ml bottles, but Muffin Man by One Hit Wonder has become an extremely poplar option; especially for budget conscious vapers. You’ll pay more upfront (about $50), but that equates to six 30ml bottles – which ends up being less than $9 each. And boy is it good! Super smooth and loaded with flavor, Muffin Man combines the taste of sweet red apples with freshly baked muffins. It starts off with a lightly sweet muffin profile, followed by crisp red apple and just a hint of cinamon. Extremely tasty and a must try if you love bakery/ dessert flavors.
* One Hit Wonder has some other excellent options at the vendors listed below.
Here’s how one Reddit reviewer described Muffin Man:
I have to say this is one of the most flavorful juices I’ve ever had the pleasure of vaping. The flavor is out of this world! It’s apple muffins… and it’s one of the best I’ve ever had. The flavor defintely tastes like grandma’s homemade apple muffins. You can taste the Red Washington Apple’s and there’s some cinnamon flavoring, but not too much – and not too little. Everyone should give this liquid a try!
Five Pawns is well-known among vaping enthusiasts for producing premium, hand-crafted e-juice. Created in small batches with only the highest-quality ingredients, Five Pawns is definitely on the pricey-side, but it’s well worth the cost! Grandmaster is one of Five Pawns most popular e-liquid flavors (along with Gambit), and it’s BY FAR my favorite. Rich and creamy peanut butter on inhale, followed by subtly sweet banana and a hint of caramel. Grandmaster is super smooth and delicious – A REAL TREAT! I have to pace myself with this flavor, otherwise it disappears way too quickly.
Here’s what one Five Pawns customer had to say:
I just received Grandmaster in the mail and I can say with 100% certainty that this is one of the best, if not the best, e-liquid I have ever had. It took just one vape to come to this conclusion, though I have been vaping it with reckless abandon ever since I first tried it. I’m not great at reviews, but I will say this is one stunningly delectable, beautifully crafted, insanely tasty, sultry-ass vape.
If you’re into fruity flavors – Fuzion Vapor’s “Unicorn Blood” is an extremely popular option that you need to check out. I’ve had the pleasure of trying it myself and it’s regularly discussed on vaping forums around the Web; including ECF. It’s super sweet, fruity and loaded with flavor! I love how Fuzion Vapor describes it:
Unicorns are the single most magical beings that ever existed. Their blood is rumored to have magical powers and butterfly kisses. So, what does Unicorn Blood taste like exactly? It tastes just like Unicorn Blood should taste… like fruity, sweet rainbow goodness that would make even the Nyan Cat jealous. Unless you hate cute kitties, snuggly blankets and baby’s yawning… you’ll love this mystical e-juice.
Many people say that it tastes like Skittles – every flavor at once – but in my opinion Hawaiian Punch would be the closest comparison. It has very strong strawberry and cherry undertones, with a sweet fruit punch flavor that lingers after you exhale. You may or may not appreciate colored e-liquids, but one of the coolest qualities about Unicorn Blood (besides the name) is it’s deep, blood-red coloring. Not only does it taste how you’d imagine, but it actually looks like unicorn’s blood!
Cosmic Fog’s Milk & Honey has gotten a lot of fanfare since it was first introduced, and for good reason… it’s pretty dang delicious! Similar to Churrios (above), but minus the subtle spiciness of cinnamon, it reminds me of being a kid and letting my Honey’ Nut Cheerios sit in a bowl of milk to absorb all of the sweet, honey goodness. Yeah, it’s kind of like that… but better! Lightly sweet, super creamy and extra smooth, an all-day-vape doesn’t get much better than this. Available at a growing number of vape shops around the country, here’s Cosmic Fog’s description:
Close your eyes and imagine a vape lighter than air. You see fields of puffy marsh mallows as far as the eye can see. The sky opens and sweet milk rains down. Open your eyes in time for the perfect note of rich honey to cap it all off. Finally you have arrived….in the land of milk and honey.
Depending on your viewpoint, the name might not be the most politically correct choice, but Thug Juice has a huge following and is one of Mt. Baker’s most popular e-juices. It’s described as tasting like “grape, watermelon, a bit of sweetener and some menthol” – and that’s a pretty good description. I’m not a huge fan of minty e-juice or anything with menthol, but this one is sweet, cool and refreshing. Add 1 or 2 extra flavor shots (an option at Mt. Baker) and it’s even more tasty! And don’t forget to checkout their other popular minty fruit flavor, Mt. Baker’s Hawk Sauce.
One dedicated Thug Juice fan had this to say:
I bought my first bottle of Thug Juice over a year ago and I keep coming back for more. It has sweet watermelon and grape undertones, combined with a cool menthol kick that smacks you right in the face! If you like menthol flavors mixed with fruit, you’ll love Mt. Baker Vapor’s Thug Juice.
Space Jam is a well-established and extremely popular e-juice brand with some mouthwateringly good fruit flavors. Astro is probably the most well-known, and it’s also my personal favorite. A fruity combination of green apple, strawberries and peach, it’s extremely well balanced with just the right amount of tart + sweetness, making it a smooth and delicious all-day-vape. Subtle sour apple on inhale, with a crisp, sweet strawberry aftertaste and a hint of peach. Super tasty!
An Astro fan on AllTheJuices.com had this to say:
Astro is the best flavor in the world, in my opinion, and I have tried hundreds of flavors over the years. It is my #1 juice and the one I always go back to when I get tired of the rest. I have recommended it to many people and all of them have said that it’s one of their favorites. Buy it, like today!
Looper is a new addition to this list, recently added (5/17/15) because it’s become so popular… and because it’s so darn good! I recently tried it for myself and it certainly deserves the hype. A cereal-flavored e-liquid that tastes exactly like Kellogg’s Fruit Loops in milk! Creamy, fruity and crisp, it’s a perfectly balanced combo of flavors that truly tastes like you’re vaping bowl of fruity breakfast cereal. ANML’s only other flavor, Carnage (Red Vines licorice) is just as good… try both!
This is how one reviewer on JuiceDB.com described Looper:
Spot on Fruit Loops flavor. Multiple fruits harmoniously mixed to a delicate balance; none more overbearing or punchy than the rest. Somehow the exact cereal flavor is replicated. That combination of puffed corn and grain with the light frosting sets it apart from most cereal vapes where it’s all fruit and very little cereal. Underlying all of it is a light milky taste. It’s not cream or custard because it shouldn’t be; it’s just milk and in just the right amount.
Halo produces a complete line of complex flavors, most of them being of the tobacco variety. Voodoo is one of the more adventurous options, a combination of mild tobacco mixed with vanilla, black currant, grape, plum, and a hint of spice. This is another e-juice that’s tough to describe, a mix of sweet, spicy and fruity all rolled into one. Similar to pipe tobacco with a unique, fruity kick that’s perfectly balanced and smooth.
Voodoo is a tangy, fruity, brilliantly balanced, and indeed mysteriously complex blend with a lot of character. It’s definitely on the sweeter side, but I still have a hard time deciphering the individual flavors after more than a year of weekly enjoyment. A unique and tasty combination. Hats off!
