    Default Halo Juice

    I've been vaping for almost 2 months and Halo has been home for me as far as juice goes. But I'm curious..if the past is any indication, how often do they come out with new juices? I've watched reviews of people trying "the new juice from Halo" from a year or so ago. What has the interval been, or is it just whenever they decide they like something enough to sell it?

    Well, if you look through the old (very old) threads you can see very few of the original juices are still around. You have been vaping longer than I have, so I can't give too much input. But the vets will swoop in soon to answer your questions, and hey, if you try other juices your not a traitor, it will just show you how good the halo juices are.

    They usually give away free samples of new flavors before they start selling it to see how people like it and they use that to judge if they should mass produce it for sale.

    I've only seen two new flavors. I've been using halo for about a year, not the whole year though.

    I have tried many others and Halos are just outstanding for me. Boba's Bounty is great but it made my wicks fall apart within a couple of days. I have a few others in my rotation from a local B&M, but Longhorn and Torque are my favs by far. I always come back to them and fall in love all over again ;p

    My 7ml sample of Sub-Zero was absolutely amazing, and it tasted just like I wanted a perfect menthol juice to taste like. My 30ml bottle I just got feels like it has 2-3 times the menthol as the sample and is almost unbearable. I am going to try to work it down with some Turkish or maybe another menthol flavor.

    Is there some sort of reasoning behind this? The flavor and smell is the same, but the menthol has become overpowering. Maybe a steep would help a bit but would it diminish the menthol like I want it to, or would it only kill the taste, or both?

    I agree with the penguin. I had great memories of the first 7ml samples, like tribeca and belgian. But the 30ml is different. I can't explain it. From cinders posts, there is a lot of quality control. They steep the juice at the lab.

    Of course, it very well could be a combo of my changing tastes, and selective memories of the good old days. Some 120 ago...

    I don't think it is changing taste buds, considering it was two days ago I ran out of the sample. Everyone says that the Sub-Z is wayyy to strong, but I didn't get that, with the sample, but this 30ml is like getting hit with a truck, made entirely out of menthol. So I am thinking the sample was the one that was off, and not the big bottle.

    I still think the other menthol's are not mentholy enough so I guess I will use it as a mixer to add some kick and see if I can't find a mix to mimic what I had from the sample.

    The sample may have been steeped longer - it's possible that with time your big bottle will taste the same!

    I THINK I read somewhere that steeping can affect flavor, but the menthol will only be affected by light.

    I actually think it was a video, but either way

    Okay, I have a question here...

    Halo's definition of Tribeca is that is basically an RY4 (they even say it), why don't they call it that like every single other company?

    Just to be different? To feel special? Or are they adding something 'special' to give it it's uniqueness?

    To clarify an RY4 is a tobacco base with caramel and vanilla, which is EXACTLY what halo claims it to be.

    Either way, it is a kick..... juice, and I like that they don't follow everyone else and give it the same generic name, I just wonder why.
