We all know that a rose by any other name would smell just as sweet, but can the same be said for e-liquid? Would you really have bought that flavour vape juice if it didn’t have such a hilarious name? We’ve taken a look at the funny, weird and plain shocking names of e-liquids available on the market to see what is most attractive to users, and what’s just downright ridiculous.
We all remember the Charlie Sheen rant where he proclaimed he had tiger blood. This flavour doesn’t taste like blood, nor Charlie Sheen. Instead, it tastes like an energy drink. Perk yourself up with this one while giving yourself a power boost. Who wouldn’t want tiger’s blood?
When you think of the word ‘urban’, you probably don’t think of delicious fruits. You may think of traffic, people and noise. If that’s the case, you’ll be surprised by this flavour, composed of melon, berries and menthol. They’ve definitely got the ‘kool’ part covered!
Legend has it that the golden fleece, made from the skin of one of Zeus’ winged rams, had magical healing qualities. It is also said to represent royal power. This flavour may not heal your ailments, but it certainly packs a punch. It tastes like a fruity energy drink with a hint of anise. This will wake you up no problem.
If you want to try a flavour named after a character, the Diavlo range will be perfect for you. With inspiration coming from the darker side of London, the characters are based on three sections. From The Carnation Street Gang, try ‘Cyclops Bob’ for the smooth taste of peanut butter. In the West Enders Gang, we have ‘Tommy Two Tubes’ who tastes like mango and lychee. And, in The Old Bill, ‘Billy The Mole’ will leave a taste of raspberry slush in your mouth.
The names of these characters bear subtle resemblances to their flavours, and it is a great talking point when you start by saying, ‘I’m vaping Jack The Nipper!’
In the world of strange E-liquid names, you’ll never be short of options. Here are a few more of our favourite names from across the world:
Whether you love unicorns or not, we aren’t sure we’d want to vape their vomit.
Ever felt like vaping something that tastes like it’s come from another planet? Only choose this if you’re willing to admit that you vape the possible urine of another creature
Can you withstand the power of the very thing that is the only weakness of Superman himself?
Medusa was the terrifying snake-haired Gorgon whose gaze could turn men to stone. Possibly one for the powerful ladies (or men) out there.
The name of an e-liquid should be powerful, evocative and make it fly off the shelves. So, do any of the names above get you licking your lips and prepping your e-cig? It appears that some of the best-selling e-liquids are ones with either rude or powerful names; anything that gets vapers laughing or excited to taste the flavours hidden behind the name. Of course, this isn’t the case for all, as some people like to know exactly what flavour they’re getting, but if you fancy taking a risk, why turn down a chance to try one?
