The Juice Judge: Clever Vape, Fluid, FanceeJuice, Avail, Vapor Shark

The Juice Judge

Juices are rated on a scale of 1-5 based on flavor, vapor production and throat-hit.

 

Clever Vape’s Brooklyn Pop

Clever Vape’s Brooklyn Pop, presented in a glass eye dropper bottle with an eye-catching label, won me over before I even tasted the juice. I am a sucker for unique labeling and packaging and Clever Juice has provided a strong case in this area. Brooklyn Pop, true to its description, is a refreshing cola juice with a subtle black cherry tone. It tastes fresh and light and may become a staple in my juice rotation.Vapor clouds were gorgeous and satisfying on this 50/50 mix while throat hit was above average. You can grab a 30ml bottle for $14.99 or flavor boost it for an additional $4 at clevervape.com.

VAPE VERDICT = 4.6

Flavor=5, Vapor=5, Throat Hit=4


Fluid’s Tangsicle

Fluid’s Tangsicle is a tasty orange dreamsicle juice that is more reminiscent of Hi-C than Tang with a cream accent on the backend, most noticeably on the exhale.If you like orange this juice is pretty tasty. Some folks at the table found the orange a little overpowering while others found it spot on in terms of its name and description. Our tester bottle was a 50/50 mix of PG/VG and vapor clouds were large and chewy. Throat hit was average. A 30ml bottle costs $15.99 and vapers can select PG/VG mix or add menthol at no additional cost at fluidvaper.com.

VAPE VERDICT = 4.0

Flavor=4, Vapor=5, Throat Hit=3

FanceeJuice’s Cloudarita

It took a little bit of vaping and some at the table never got it, but this juice does taste exactly like a lime margarita. The flavor is there, but at first it was a little faint. Toward the end we could nearly taste the salt on the end of the drip tip. This was an overall very tasty juice and receives high marks in the flavor category. Vapor production was stellar with voluminous clouds pouring from a fresh cartomizer. The only area it was average in was throat hit. On their website vaper scan select cloudiness, (PG/VG mix) and they also offer a margarita box where you can get a big juice of Cloudarita and blueberry, lime, watermelon, strawberry and mango mixers to mix a perfect margarita in the atomizer.FanceeJuicetouts their juice as premium e-liquid, and it costs $20.99 for a 30ml bottle. fanceejuice.com.

VAPE VERDICT = 4.3

Flavor=5, Vapor=5, Throat Hit=3

 

Avail’s Piña Colada

If you like Piña Colada and getting caught in the rain … I can’t recommend getting it from Avail. This juice tastes like it’s large batch created, rebranded and resold. In a word, it’s gross. It only tasted marginally like coconut to one person at the table while others mentioned that it was unvapeable. Vapor production is average and we cannot say why as the bottle did not represent the mix of PG and VG. Throat hit was nonexistent. Their site currently is in launch status and has no pricing information.But, you can view their other juices, which are hopefully better, at availvapor.com

VAPE VERDICT = 1.6

Flavor=1, Vapor=3, Throat Hit=1

Vapor Shark’s Ice Tart

Vapor Shark’s Ice Tart is a mentholated Pixie Stix juice. The jury is out on this one as the menthol is not very fresh or crisp and fades very quickly while the Pixie Stix flavor is very muted. Vapor production is average and the bottle did not represent the mix of PG and VG. Throathit was average for a mentholated juice. While vapers can choose the level of nicotine on the site it does not appear you can select the mix of PG/VG. A 30ml bottle is approximately $14.99 and is sold at vaporshark.com.

VAPE VERDICT = 3.0

Flavor=3, Vapor=3, Throat Hit=3

Breaking News: E-Cigarette Officially Dedicated in U.K.

logo_caceFIVAPE, France’s Interprofessional Federation of Vape, just sent Agent VAPE this exciting press release:

The Fivape Interprofessional Federation of Vape welcomes the publication today the report on the electronic cigarette of Public Health England   [1](PHE), dependent agency of the UK Department of Health (Department of Health). This publication marks a turning point in the perception of vape in the U.K. and around the world.

“95% less dangerous than smoking ‘

Commissioned by the British Government, the report says, down countless attempts at manipulation, the e-cigarette is 95% less harmful than tobacco. A return to the wholesome and health reality, while many smokers were misled by the idea that vape could be equally or more dangerous than tobacco products.

Absence gateway to smoking

The UK is a pioneer in the fight against smoking: the rate of smokers is 20% in Britain, 34% against and 78 000 deaths in France. This report highlights, evidence and scientific studies to support that the vape is the best way to drastically reduce the number of victims of tobacco. Yes allows the electronic cigarette to quit smoking, it should be encouraged and can not be compared to tobacco products, it is not a gateway to tobacco but the reverse.

In France, the ostrich policy: until when?

Recognizing “one of the greatest public health debates of recent years” and the need for further research, the Public Health England conducted its work according to a methodology faithful to its motto: “Protecting and Improving the nation’s health.” Or the inverse of the guidelines adopted in France to date, where the vape is still considered a threat, despite the accumulation of tobacco deaths. How much time and lives lost before the French government go to the obvious?

The Fivape, especially the report of Public Health England, challenge the government of Manuel Valls, the Ministry of Health and health authorities and all organizations and policies against smoking in our country. While anti-vape measures contained in the Law of Health are in the Senate agenda in September, the French parliamentarians must urgently enter the UK report.

Fivape, Interprofessional Federation of Vape, brings together independent professionals of the e-cigarette and e-liquid in France. Organized in four Secretariats: Manufacturers, Distributors Relations with users, Europe and International, Fivape acts in favor of business and expertise of vaping. The missions of the federation is to unite, represent, form, standardize and defend free vape. The federation and its members sign a declaration of independence from the tobacco multinationals.
