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? WHO DOESN’T LIKE FLOWERS? … until you run into one that taste like the inside of deodorized casket, all perfume and sweet decay. And sour? It sounds great, using a tart acidity to balance a sticky sweet candy or fruit flavor. I’ve never had a “sour” juice that was actually sour. They just end up tasting thin and metallic while the vaping experience feels like inhaling the kind of fumes that the OSHA nerds think require a respirator or fume hood. Has Capella finally cracked the secrets of the sour? This week, we’re going fully “sour.” I’m starting out with the fairly new Capella Tangy Orange.Read More »
And we’ve come to the part of my increasingly surreal life where I try to dissect another bergamot concentrate, another flavor I’m not sure I had ever even thought about before I started quixotic quest to become some flavor demagogue. This is a fresher and more floral version of bergamot.
Hey, another sort of interesting vape train lemonade, this time with the “clear” addendum. I’d call that mostly confusing, as I don’t really associate lemonade flavors with being especially unclear, but whatever. According to Vape Train the profile here is “a sweet lemonade flavour that’s similar to a Sprite Lemonade without the zesty citrus tang found in say a lemon squash.” So that helps, I guess?
Unpopular opinion here, but lemonade flavors seem more alike than not to me. They are all vaguely candied, all feel like they were originally made from a powder. It’s more kool-aid than fresh squeezed and FW Lemonade and LA Lemonade are dirt cheap, so it’s hard to offer a really compelling argument that you really need another lemonade. This is pretty interesting though, and seems to do a pretty good job capturing something like carbonation. I am intrigued.
A tart tropical fruit smoothie? More acidic than orange.
