The Gummy Bears I received has also turned brown. I read so many positive reviews I could not wait to try it. I loaded it into a Vision Giant and started to vape and it quickly turned to the color of molasses. I was not very impressed with the flavor either. It was a letdown for me. I have some Smarty I am steeping at the moment. I usually let new juices steep for two weeks. I will be giving it a try in the next day or two. I will post my opinion on it here. I am patiently waiting on the Menthol Mania? Thanks for this thread Erin.
