Capella has a fairly new sour additive, and they brought out the big guns with the prefix: “POWERFUL.” Will this join Capella Super Sweet as one the primary scourges of commercial juice? It’s definitely a bit different from other available options but I’m not sure it has the equivalent transformative power of Super Sweet. Super Sweet basically turns juice into candy, while this might be more accurately described as an additive to make fruit flavors a little more tart and realistic. Cool, but not quite what I was expecting.Read More »
This feels like a trap. You’ve got the harsh, muting properties of “sours” along with the fraught plastic hellscape of aerosolized cherry flavorings. I was pretty apprehensive about this flavor but I think, on balance, it’s not bad?Read More »
Vaping has a whole bunch of things that sound like a good idea in theory but usually fall flat. Savory flavors? HOW NOVEL! What a lovely change in pace! … until they end up tasting like dirt, vomit, or stale dog food with an overly sweet background. Florals?

Our vape train toffee journey is coming to an end. I present “Toffee Ice Cream.” According to Vape Train, this is supposed to be a honeycomb toffee ice cream, or hokey pokey. Not coincidentally, this does taste a whole lot like a combination of their Vanilla Ice Cream and Honeycomb. Easy enough, right?
Democratizing “information” sounds great in theory, right? Among the great promises of the information age, we were told that everyone would have a voice. Trillions of dollars have been made giving people a platform to push their version of truth to an audience. (And yes, I get the irony.) We’ve created a neon hellscape of conflicting information and credulous rubes. VT Honeycomb is not a honey flavor.
