    WHEW.

    Funny how things come around. I ran/tabulated the 2011 poll and decided not to participate this year because of all the time and effort. Well, being that mwa is missing in action, I just put time and effort into the 2012 poll. A few notes: For juices that appeared in multiple categories (House Blend and Cinful Pear are the most significant ones), I assigned them to the one category in which they received the most votes (e.g. House Blend got some votes in Tobacco, but overwhelmingly was voted in Bakery/Desserts). Also when someone voted for one juice across multiple categories, I only counted one vote for that juice and categorized it according to the principle I just discussed. I will also post the entire spreadsheet soon but for now will just post the main winners, so without further ado....

    Here's the main portion of the spreadsheet. It's pretty much a chore to export these as jpg's that are readable on here so I'm having to crop everything to fit. For Overall Vendor, I only counted the main vendors who had a chance to contend, fyi.

    Sure thing.

    I'm wondering if this thread will suffer from The Boy Who Cried Poll Results and everyone will ignore it :p

    Thanks, SA DA TAY! People were beginning to wonder... and congrats to all the winners. Your hard work has paid off, as well. Where would we be without you?

    Hope it's okay to post this here. For anyone looking for the HHV juices Gandalf, Shadowfax and Blade Runner, for legal reasons the names had to be changed. They are now as follows:

    Gandalf = Legend
    Shadowfax = Shadow
    Blade Runner = Blade

    Okay, here is something to make you all think...

    The popular vendor of the day, and the popular juice of the day, are all subject to the following...
    --fanboys
    --fangirls
    --efforts by the vendor to cultivate fanboys and fangirls

    Over the last three and half years I have seen vendor after vendor become the "popular" vendor.
    And then they fade away over time, to be replaced by the vendor with the best advertising, contests, and fan followings.

    Back in my day, it was Tasty Vapor and Mrs T's Bakery.
    Then it was Backwoods Brew, Vermillion River, and various others, although I stopped paying attention about that time.

    Now it is whomever, and all I can say is whatever.

    Tasty Vapor STILL has the best juice I've ever tasted.
    And getting caught up in the hype is just you, getting caught up in the hype.

    This is something I've wanted to say for years now.

    BUT GO AHEAD AND FLAME AWAY!!
    :)

    So? People change, vendors change. And, well, so?

    Oh and, AVE and Boba's Bounty for 3 years.

    No, people don't change, and vendors don't change.
    It's all about becoming popular.

    And Boba's Bounty is very good, and deserves to be a long-standing favorite.
    It isn't my choice, due to being 100% VG, which is why I prefer Vapor Station Frisco, which tastes about the same but better.

    And yes, Vapor Station Frisco was one of the top juices back in the day.
    And no reason it shouldn't be now, other than they no longer play they "pump up my juices" game.

    Anyone in the Eroll thread knows im head over heels for Wordupecig liquids, but they dont seem very popular in general. Honestly id never tout a vendor that dilutes their mix with water, and definitely wouldnt trust a Best of list, that includes such vendors ;) Honestly its personal preference, if my juice is to be made with a thinned product, id rather be the one to thin it out. Beyond that im sure a lot of vendors get flavorings from the same place or concentrates! Im sure there are a TON of top notch eliquid vendors out there, that list is probably a monster

    Uhmmm.... HHV doesn't play any pump up games. They don't have contests. They don't advertise. They don't even have any discount codes.

    They still just got voted #1 vendor of 2012.

    Why exactly do the Juice Awards butthurt you so much you feel like you have to rain on everyone's parade? This was just fun for most people. You feel like everyone is just too stupid to realize YOUR vendors are the best vendors?

    I disagree with that as I've tried the previously popular vendors. They're important. They're popular. If they weren't they'd be out of business.There's something for everyone, and every time a new vendor arrives the bar is set even higher than before. NET's have become a much discussed favourite of many vs. TA+++. I prefer NETs. And I love the exotic tobacco bases that Heather's has. That's just my opinion and that's why i voted that way. I'm not knocking your preferences either. Like I said, they wouldn't be in business if they were awful. And all "fanboys" and "fangirls" are people who have been searching and searching for that special vape for a good long while who then find the one that makes them say "Wow!".
