The vape industry is wild. Mad scientists have blessed vapers with virtually every flavor imaginable, from nostalgic cereals and candies to delectable desserts that would make Gordon Ramsey crack a grin. While many vape flavors are absolutely delicious, there are also some that are downright bizarre. Here are five of the strangest vape juice flavors out there.
You’d be hard-pressed to find a savory recipe that wouldn’t be improved with a clove (or 20) of garlic. That said, garlic isn’t a flavor most folks would choose to vape willingly. Even the most passionate garlic-heads out there would find this pungent e-liquid to be a bit much, to put it lightly. That said, it’s a great choice if you have a vampire problem.
In addition to garlic, there are also garlic bread e-juices out there. While pastry flavors are usually quite tasty, vaping garlic bread just seems wrong. Of course, it could be a treat if paired with some spaghetti e-liquid — yes, that exists too.
2. Hot Dog
Ever boiled some franks and thought about vaping the leftover water? Of course you have! Well, you’re in luck because, yes, hot dog flavored e-liquid is a thing that exists. Vaping hot dogs seems terrible on paper, but in practice…it’s still terrible. Some brave souls say they taste hints of fried onions and mustard. Perhaps adding a dash of dill pickle e-liquid would elevate the flavor?
3. Black Pepper
Upon first consideration, black pepper doesn’t seem all that bad. But think about it. Black pepper is a seasoning that doesn’t do well on its own. Have you ever sampled a bit of black pepper? It’s not a pleasant experience. Even if you have a wacky palate, this is a level of pungency and bite that can be quite daunting.
At the same time, those who enjoy black pepper e-juice really enjoy it! While it sounds like a sneeze in a bottle, somehow it actually works. The flavor is very bold, as you might expect, but somehow it’s not completely disgusting. If you’re the type of person who keeps saying “more” while the waiter cranks the pepper shaker, you owe it to yourself to see what black pepper e-liquid is all about.
Wasabi has an extremely intense, pungent flavor. If you put even a little bit too much on your sushi, you’re going to feel it in your nose. Naturally, some genius out there realized that that oddly pleasant burning sensation could be cranked up a few dozen notches. Thus, wasabi e-juice was born.
Now, some weird flavors are actually pretty manageable. Wasabi isn’t one of them. The only real use case for this cursed flavor is pranking that roommate who’s always getting into your vape stash. Pick up a bottle as a novelty, but don’t expect to vape it more than once. You could always make a custom blend with tuna e-liquid — yep, that’s real too.
5. Crab Legs
Finally, vapeable crab legs. If you’ve ever cracked into a seafood dinner and wondered what it would be like to literally inhale your meal, you’re in luck. Crab legs e-liquid tastes like a fish market smells. This one doesn’t hold back. Even enthusiastic shellfish fans find the taste and aroma off-putting. If crab legs is your preferred all-day vape, you might just be a cat.
Treat Yourself to a Strange Experience
This list is just the tip of the iceberg. There are so many other strange e-liquid flavors out there, including butter, bacon, roast chicken, beer, blue cheese, Worcestershire sauce, beef jerky, and nacho cheese. While some of them miss the mark, you might be surprised by how accurate they can be.
So, if you’re willing to vape outside the box, give some weird flavors a shot. Even if you don’t love them, they make great conversation pieces. Just watch your buddy’s reaction when you tell them you’re vaping on some crab legs! These concoctions are less than delightful, but there’s no denying that they’re a fun change of pace. Take a walk on the wild side — you might even enjoy it!
