    As for labels on what we consume, that's a different and much longer conversation. On our product however, there are so few ingredients that it is cost effective and time saving to have them all listed. I wasn't trying to confuse anyone, my thoughts were simple and pragmatically focused. I'll get them changed with the next set to say "may contain".
    Whatever the case, Gamel is the strangest flavor I've had all year, and strangely enough, it's a flavor I feel I can not, now, do without! Great stuff!

    The strangest flavor that you cannot do w/out but at the same time not recommend to anyone else? lol. I love the stuff too. Got my first order of it last month. I think it's that sweet cured tobacco flavor with the thick and smooth texture that does it for me.

    Yes! It is like my Durian liquid. haha.

    I am no longer much into Boba's since I think it doesn't taste the same, but I would recommend it in a heartbeat. Even still, I would take Gamel over Boba's in the blink of an eye, and I am now looking into B4, FC and C&D just in case they may do it for me like Gamel.

    Oh, and when I settle down with the liquids that I must have, Gamel will be right at the top of that list. Nothing I have ever had tastes like Gamel, well, except for how BB now tastes.

    I was one of fortunate few that got in on the first test runs of the relaunch. I ordered two 100 mils of BB. I enjoyed the first bottle right out of the mailbox, however I thought it was a little off.
    Just this week I finally broke into the second bottle, Wow I could not be more pleased.
    Sweet Boba Bliss.

    Durian liquid? Dear lord!! Has anyone ever called the coroner on you while vaping it?


    I've tried FC and B4. The FC to me tastes a bit like what a hay stack smells like but in a good way. It has a bit of that green plant flavor to it. B4 I am not quite sure what to think of it. Sometimes I get Gamel, sometimes FC, sometimes a bit of honey. The only one I've not yet tried is C&D. Please get back to us w/ your thoughts after you try it.

    Cool. I will attempt to be serious with my impressions.

    Default I agree, Boba's Bounty does not taste the same :(

Now, the interesting thing is that I can deal with Gamel and all of its briny, vinegar like taste (I dig it); but with Boba's, it ("it" meaning the other flavor that makes Boba's, Boba's) doesn't fair well (to me) against the backdrop of that base. It just can't compete.

    I have been vaping now since 2010 and for the past 2 years I have used the same mod, the same attys (same brand and resistance), and the same watts (res/voltage). Hell, I even use the same drip tips. LOL. I said all that to say that if you say you haven't changed anything about Boba's since it's inception, then I take you word for it; but take my for it when I say this liquid does not taste the same as it did (I first had it early last year and have had some since). Yes, the top of Boba's is the same, but the bottom (base) does not taste the same at all.
    Mr.Mann,


    I agree. I've been vaping for almost 3 years now, same set up regarding hardware. Since the re-opening of avejuice, all of the boba I've tried recently is not the same taste and experience as in the past. I loved the boba from the past and it was my all day EVERYDAY chain vape. I knew the flavor like I know when I am drinking Coke or Pepsi. Anyway, the new batches my coworker has ordered for himself and for me have all been off from the original. There's a certain over powering flavor which we don't know what it is since we never knew what any of the flavors were, but there's one there that wasn't there before or it's just more pronounced now. That "natural tobacco base" you speak of is what we've both loved in the past and doesn't seem to be present. And these are steeped for a month now. Further, in our opinion, the vapor production is less and these recent batches seem to "kill" the atty faster than normal. We've always used CISCO spec attys at the same resistance. Our other juices work fine but for some odd reason the new batches of boba seem to hamper the attys performance. Very bizarre. I have been holding out to place a new order in the hopes other boba fans would chime in on this issue as well. So I am extremely thankful to find your post.


    Thank you,

    So I got together with a few fellow Boba's Bounty fans and had a vape with my stock. They all agreed it is not the same flavor they were expecting. Additionally we all noticed that there seemed to be a bit of Flue Cured flavor as well as possibly some Bee's Knees flavor in it. We were not so sure about the Bee's Knees but we definitely got some honey flavor. We were also positive that we could taste the Flue Cured in it as well.

    I'm not sure if that helps anyone but there ya go.
