    Why do e-juice vendors think that they don't owe the people spending their hard earned money a description of the flavor they are buying? Do they think everyone wants a surprise when they fill their tanks? I've seen them actually say TRY TO FIGURE IT OUT. Now I've found a vendor that won't even tell me the VG/PG ratio for fear of being copied????

    I find this annoying too. At least give me a general description like " flavors of x and y with something special". The pg/vg ratio thing drives me nuts since I can't vape anything over 50% pg.

    Maybe just too lazy to write a description. ;) seriously, wine companies actually hire people whose sole job is to write those wine descriptions you read at the store..

    I agree too on some descriptions. I hate it when I get a picture of a monster or something and I have to click on it to get a description and then it's so brief, there's no telling what the flavor is.

    They really should at least give the % mix numbers, always annoying when its not listed/available.

    I absolutely hate it.


    Why would I spend money on that if I have ZERO clue what it's going to taste like?! Especially on juices that have zero reviews, or the reviews they DO have, the user makes no mention of the flavor.


    And obviously, the above is just an amalgamation of many juices from many vendors.

    I agree. I was in another thread called All Day Vapes or something similar to that. From all of the different names I had no clue what they were supposed to taste like. Apparently they want you to research from other users what it tastes like. For instance Boba's Bounty (I think) was on quite a few of people's all day vape. I researched it and so many people have differing opinions as to what it tastes like. And apparently it tastes differently as it ages...maybe that's why they don't give a description?

    Still be nice to have a general idea if it was in the tobacco, fruit, or sweet category though.

    There's so many juices I won't try because of lack of description. And it seems like the reviewers are in on it, as well because I can't even get an idea of what it tastes like when all the reviews say, "this is awesome! I poured some into my Protank and now it's my ADV!"

    Seriously... why bother?

    Has anyone tasted something foul in a company's liquid, every flavor, and you seem to be the only person that tastes it?
    Spinfuel magazine gives it their highest award, and nobody says anything about a taste or smell that is in every flavor? I'm guessing it must be a base they use? I have whole orders from 3 or 4 companies that are unusable in my opinion, but others rave about them... The cheap company's liquid all tastes like it has dishwashing detergent in it, for example.

    Yes, a lot of the bigger suppliers have very unique bases. Either you're going to love it or hate it.

    even for the juices that supposedly change as the age like Bobba's Bounty (for the record I have never tried it) where everyones decription is different. They sure as hell know what they put into it, or I HOPE they do, why not say has X, and y plus a trade secret? Another is Gorrilla joe, is that banana coffee? but the worst I have seen is PC hype no description at all. And i'm not picking on AV there's also things like:
    DEADLY SIN
    A sweet, bakery tobacco vape. A description will never do this one justice. It's my all day vape. It's become the only juice I vape. Some flavors are made for each other and blend perfectly.

    Unless they is NO consistency in the juices make up TELL ME what i'm paying for, or make it seem worth my while to gambleI.E. Mystery flavor SAVE $2 per ML, but you get what you get.. unlabeled XPG/YVG zzMG/ML juice..

    Doesn't Spinfuel give everybody their highest award? :blink:

    I have fallen for a couple of these 'GUESS WHAT IT IS!' juices, and it turns out it's always hazelnut.

    No, but I can use plastic clearos and not taste the plastic either. And metal drip tips don't bother me either. That's not to say what you're saying isn't true, it's just that my taste isn't that acute.

    I'm not understanding the Spinfuel magazine awards. Seems like the ads and sponsors are the juices they reviewed.

    Sorry. Meant to add that both juices were 18 nic. I got 2 of the Maple Rum Tobacco - one 5 ml that I ordered at 50/50 pg/vg, one 5 ml was a free sample at 100 pg. The Vapor Room French Toast was 80 pg/20 vg.
