The Best Vape Juice of The Most Popular Categories 2021
If you’re a vaper, you’ll already know that the choice of vape juices is staggering and it seems to be growing all the time, with new combinations and crazy innovations appearing on the shelves every day. If you’re a newcomer, how and where do you start to check out all the options available? It’s a good problem to have because it means the vaping world is at your feet. And there are no rules, so you can dive in anywhere, which is part of the fun. But if you’re looking for a little help, here’s some guidance we’ve put together to point you in the direction of some of the best products in the most popular categories.
For anyone transitioning from cigarette smoking to vaping, this is the most obvious place to start. But don’t expect it to be as simple as it sounds because there’s a great range of options, like sweet, spiced and even cigar-flavored. Try vaping with a hint of melon sweetening the tobacco, like our Tabac Elope Juice. You won’t want the rich tobacco sensation to be overwhelmed, but this softens it nicely.
Fruit flavoring is everywhere, from desserts, sweets and chocolates to toiletries, perfumes and diffusers. There are even scratch-and-sniff books and toys, probably thanks to Lotso from Toy Story. Fruit and vaping work together perfectly. If you’re not so concerned about mimicking the experience of real cigarettes but you’re embracing vaping as a whole new experience, the diversity of flavors will suit you perfectly. From very mild infusions to full-strength flavors, there's something to suit every taste. We recommend you start with something with strawberry or lemon tones as these tend not to be as overpowering as some on the market. If you like the sensation, you can graduate to something stronger, like Perfect Pina.
Inevitably, the explosion of fruit vape juices inspired the creation of more complex combinations involving not just fruit but all kinds of sweeteners and accompaniments. If you’ve got a sweet tooth and you like your desserts, it isn’t hard to find something that ticks all your boxes, like apple pie or chocolate cake. They’re not as rich as they sound, and you can happily vape with these juices all day long without feeling like you’ve overdone it. You’ll get a fairly sophisticated taste from our own Figtastic Rich Nougat.
Here’s a good option for cutting out tobacco and cutting down on the booze: vape juices that taste like drinks. Choose from a wide range, including brandy, rum and cocktails; if you prefer soft drinks, you’ll find root beer, coffee, cola, fruit juice, mocktails, slushies and even milkshakes. Some of these might be a little intense for a beginner, but you can’t go wrong with our Raspberry Lemonade as it's smooth, sweet and subtle. Most of the drink-based varieties have a more diluted flavor than other types, which some vapers are bound to prefer.
If you think you’re detecting a pattern here, you’re right. Most vape juice flavoring is designed to bring a smile to the lips as well as a pleasing pull for the lungs. Sweetness was always going to be the essential ingredient, even in the tobacco varieties. The candy range of vape juices is massive and extremely varied. Virtually any kind of candy you’ve ever heard of pops up somewhere in vape form: Kit Kats, Reese’s Pieces, Rice Krispy Squares, Hershey Bars... you name it. Vape juice manufacturers are turning the practice into something that long ago stopped being just a way to quit smoking and instead offers its own unique pleasures. Who can resist these great flavors we’ve known all our lives but could never enjoy before in a zero-calorie form?
Our final category brings us almost back to where we started. Long before vaping, if smokers wanted a change from tobacco, the menthol cigarette was the only option. They were invented in Ohio in 1924 and still represent about 30 percent of the market in the U.S., although in Europe they’ve been banned since 2020. Menthol-flavored vape juice is an excellent alternative to all the other categories, which sometimes become excessive in their inventiveness. Sometimes that smooth, cool, minty sensation provides the perfect vaping experience. It’s frequently blended with other mild, refreshing flavors, like our Watermelon Menthol - but often in its purest mint form.
Don’t be deterred by the virtually limitless possibilities. Take it slow, walk the length of the counter and enjoy.
