When the Oxford English Dictionary picked “vape” as its Word of the Year in 2014, many people were scratching their heads. A few short years later, the word is on everyone’s lips. There were 7 million adult vapers around the world in 2011. In 2016, there were 35 million. As vape-mania grows, manufacturers are meeting the demand for more outrageous e-juice flavors. The liquid, which gets heated up and atomized into vapor, has enough varieties to put Willy Wonka to shame. Vapers with a taste for adventure will go wild for these seven crazy flavors:
1. Dill Pickle
You either love them or hate them. But for many midnight snackers, there’s something uniquely satisfying about a crunchy dill pickle. This unusual e-juice attempts to recreate that juicy, briny delight. Vaping pickle juice doesn’t count as eating your vegetables, but it may hit the spot all the same.
Popcorn vape juice evokes the beloved salty, buttery comfort food. Americans have loved popcorn since the 1800s, when it was a cheap fairground snack. During the Great Depression, movie theaters started selling popcorn to draw a bigger audience. Nowadays we associate the smell of popcorn with a great movie or a sporting event. Popcorn e-liquid might just be the next evolution of the ‘corn craze. Because everyone has their own popcorn preference, you can top off this juice with another delicious flavor.
3. Worcestershire Sauce
The famous British condiment adds a welcome tang to steak, burgers, and even some cocktails. Its simple appearance belies a complex list of ingredients. Anchovies, vinegar, molasses, and a range of extracts and spices comprise the original recipe, which is still on display in a museum. If you crave that super-specific taste, this e-liquid flavor could be a game changer. Or maybe you’re just brave enough to test its accuracy.
4. Sweet Potato Casserole
Do you love Thanksgiving enough to vape it? This quirky flavor could put you in the holiday spirit. It boasts a blend of rich tastes that go well with cinnamon or caramel. Christopher Columbus brought sweet potatoes to Virginia in 1648; the addition of marshmallows would come some 300 years later. These days, you don’t have to wait for November to sample the sweet casserole.
5. Froot Loops
Who ever really outgrows cereal? It’s quick, easy, and provides a much-needed sugar rush in the morning. According to market research group Mintel, Froot Loops are America’s seventh-favorite cereal. The colorful breakfast treat makes for a nostalgic vape juice flavor.
This e-juice is not for the faint of heart. Plucked from the river valleys of Japan, “Japanese horseradish” gives sushi its powerful flavor. Wasabi roots are grated into a light green paste, which is how most people consume the plant. Now vapers have their own way to experience the unmissable spice. If you’re crazy about Asian food, you’ll appreciate this daring vape liquid.
7. Pineapple Upside Down Cake
When you can’t choose between fruity and sugary, consider a vape juice that combines the best of both worlds. Upside down fruit cakes are a choice dessert in many different cultures. From France’s “Tarte Tatin” to Brazil’s “Bolo de ananas” cake, baked fruit pastries are always in season. This unique e-liquid captures a multilayered flavor profile.
There are hundreds of different vape juice flavors on the market today. Savvy vapers can recreate their favorite solid-food tastes by experimenting with e-liquid. Basic berry and vanilla flavors might top the charts, but when it comes to vaping, innovation has always been the name of the game.
