    Two weeks into vaping I found that tobacco flavors were abhorrent to me. I curious to see how common this is.

    It takes a loonngg time for your taste buds to recover from smoking cigarettes. What you like today, you might dislike tomorrow. If you find a juice not to your liking now, hang onto it. You might like it 2 weeks from now.

    I'm on the edge of the tobacco flavors. I don't like things like PureCig. I love RY4 though and I've found my happy place with FSUSA's RY5.

    I find most fruit and candy flavors repulsive. They leave a sickeningly sweet aftertaste.

    pkj has a great point. Just hold onto what you don't like now and tuck it away in a cool, dark place like a closet or drawer. Give it 2-4 weeks and try it again. Majority of juices are handmixed and need time to blend together.

    I used to avoid tobacco flavors at all cost. I was scared it would start uncontrollable cravings. Now? I love them. nitelitevapor.com is my favorite for tobacco flavor as well as vaperite.com (has organic tobacco but needs steep time).

    Well, it's been six months since this occurred. I haven't thrown away my few little tobacco flavor bottles, but I'm not holding out much hope for them. I just recently found out that a dark chocolate flavor I've tried several times and found distasteful has a tiny amount of tobacco flavor in it, and I believe that is what caused me to dislike it.

    I started out with tobacco flavors and coffee flavors, and then moved into bakery and chocolate flavors.
    I have now come full circle back to tobacco flavors, although I had to find Dekang DK-TAB for that to happen.

    I use Dekang DK-TAB most of the time and Dekang RY4 some of the time.
    Every now and then I'll use a coffee flavor or a bakery flavor or a chocolate flavor.

    I have never liked any fruit flavors or beverage flavors.
    Well, I should say I liked many of them, but just didn't want to "smoke" them.

    I am holding out hope that the Vermillion River Florida Citrus Explosion I am waiting for might just change that.

    Is the DK-TAB like a 555? And if so, where do you get it?

    I started out with tobacco flavors, around 6 months they started to gag me. Then came just about every other flavor sold, now almost 2 years later I'm back to the tobacco flavors. Just give it some time and have some fun trying out some new flavors.

    No, the 555 is "supposed to be" a nutty flavor.
    The DK-TAB is more of a smooth, rich turkish blend.

    Oh I know what 555 is "supposed" to be, DC... lol.. been vapin it for 2yrs! But I've seen the TAB around and folks talking about it, and never knew what it tasted like. Generally, "tobacco" flavors are gross to me, so I was just wondering about the TAB.

    I enjoy a nice ry4 but I enjoy many non tobacco flavors as well. I tend to vape a lot of fruit flavors

    When I smoked analogs, I smoked marlboro reds first, then transitioned to camel crush. After crush all other cigarettes tasted bad. Tried a few tobacco flavors, its not for me. I tend to daily vape menthol, but mix in sweet flavors here and there.

    I'm kinda the Direct opposite.

    When I started, I never found a Tobacco flavor that tasted like Tobacco. Kinda like Diet Coke doesn't taste like Real Coke to me.

    From what I understand a lot of people rant and rave about the alien visions bobas bounty and gorilla juice, they're both flavored tobacco blends. I was a menthol analog smoker but I find that I like the flavored tobaccos. I use menthol as my daily vape (for now) but I'm looking for something else. I feel like I'm just not getting what I want. I have BB and GJ on order so maybe I'll be an AVE fan as well.

    Well, gotta say I'm a little surprised how many people dislike tobacco. Maybe the numbers will change eventually. I figured under 10% would be in the 'find tobacco repulsive' category.

    I think one thing that makes the "Find Tobacco Flavors Repulsive" so large is the time that vapers have been vaping.

    When I started using e-Cigs, about 2 years ago, Tobacco flavors were Horrible. I'm talking Old Socks boiled in Bat Piss Horrible. I moved to other flavors because there wasn't anything else to do. It was that or quit e-Cigarettes.

    But flavors have improved and I think now there are more Vendors mixing good flavored Tobacco e-Liquids.

    I guess I should try some BWB or some of the others I keep hearing good things about. I'm just happy in my little flavor rut.

    I'm not all that surprised by it, for a couple reasons.

    If the juice actually tastes like tobacco, then it's something that cigarette smokers are not familiar with. Cigarettes don't taste like tobacco, they taste like chemicals. I smoked them for 30 years. I also smoked pure tobacco in a pipe. There was no comparison. The cigs were for the addiction, a fast easy nico delivery system, the pipe was for enjoyment.

    Another possibility is that psychological aspect. Just as many of us did, I started with a cig look alike. Didn't take long for me to decide I didn't like that. Why look like a smoker, when I'm not, right? Maybe for some the logic extends to flavors as well.

    (BTW - Someone mentioned a tobacco with a nutty undertone. That would be would be Burley. If they're making juice by extraction, that's a logical choice too. Cheap and readily available, with a smooth and milder taste.)
