Broke Dick is a strange name for an e-juice company, and it’s a weird name to attach to a review, but it's not like what it sounds. The inspiration for the name comes from its founder, Richard Broke.
According to their website, and other online reviews they only make e-juices a "handful of times a year," in small batches. This process gives their products an air of exclusivity, but even then, Broke Dick e-juices are not as expensive as one might expect.
They have two separate lines that will be mentioned in this review. One is the regular line with eleven different options. The other one is a Limited Edition line with five separate e-juice titles.

In total, Broke Dick has sixteen different e-liquids for vapers to choose. These include the eleven products in the regular Broke Dick line, as well as the five choices that make up the BD “Limited Edition” line. The flavor profiles of all the juices run a usual path.
They feature stand-alone favorites like blueberry, lemonade, and menthol, as well as more savory delights like peanut butter, custard, and whipped cream. In this review, however, we will only be looking at five of their blends.
The 15th is a juice in the regular BD line that combines three popular tastes: peanut butter, banana cream pie, and whipped cream. The peanut buttery notes of the inhale stand out right away. As the vapor lingers in the mouth, more smooth peanut flavors start to emerge.
The peanut flavor has some sweet notes to it, as peanut butter flavors tend to have, but it comes off as authentic, and not like some sugary substitute. But as soon as the juice starts to feel like a one-note vape, the exhale reveals the tastes that were waiting underneath it all.
There is a strong banana flavor upon release, but the creaminess and sweet tones of the juice do not come out as much as the peanut and banana profiles. The 15th is a high VG e-juice, with a ratio of 70/30 VG/PG. This e-liquid comes only in a single 120ml bottle with three nicotine options: 0mg, 3mg, and 6mg.
The word “payday” can mean a lot of things to a lot of people. Payday can mean happiness, it can mean freedom, but it can also refer to wealth, and everything a person can buy when payday finally comes around.
Payday, the e-juice from Broke Dick, has a little of that everything-goes attitude, as it combines over six different flavors in one juice. Vapers will for sure notice the subtle sting of aged bourbon walks across their tongues on the inhale.
But that slight pinch of alcohol gets taken down by the rush of sweeter tones. On the exhale, vapers will feel butterscotch, bananas, and finally, cappuccino waft across their taste buds. All these flavors combine superbly to make this a great dessert e-liquid.
Payday (Payday Magnum, another version of this e-juice, adds 25% more flavor to the blend than the regular one), is a high VG e-juice, with a ratio of 70/30 VG/PG. Nicotine strengths run from 0mg to 3mg to 6mg. Payday comes only in a single 120ml bottle.
The 1st is another original name for an e-juice, keeping in-line with the all-things-related-to-money ethos of Broke Dick. The name, the “1st” brings to mind the date of the month that everyone both anticipates and dreads, as it is a day that brings money and takes it.
The “1st” combines a lot of flavors, like strawberry, vanilla and fresh, whipped cream as its topper. The berry flavor is the first that pops off the vapor cloud. It settles onto the roof of your mouth and then gets kicked out by a creamy vanilla flavor that acts as the opener to the Cool Whip finale.
The 1st is not about being the best, or even being #1. It’s about trying something new for the first time and being impressed by how familiar it is. The 1st comes only in a 120ml bottle and has three nicotine strengths, 0mg, 3mg, and 6mg.
blueberry, raspberry, strawberry, watermelon and a Little Magic
Real, berry flavor
Great for an all-day vape
High VG e-juice does not wear out coil builds
Also comes in a Magnum-variety with 25% more flavor
A little sour on the aftertaste
Prepaid is a berry medley that combines familiar flavors like strawberry and raspberry with a hint of watermelon at the end. There are other berry flavors infused into the juice as well, which slowly come out with every inhale and exhale.
The berry flavors are the first to jump out, as the inhale coats the inside of your mouth with the tangy, citrus delights of tropical fruits. On the exhale, the more soothing, refreshing flavor of watermelon hits the taste buds to mellow out the vape’s aftertaste.
The flavor profile does not stay strictly within a fruit or juice-based e-liquid. There are also notes of candy, as well as more sugary treats like Gummie bears or Fruit Gushers. With that said though, Prepaid’s flavor notes never feel artificial. This is a high VG e-liquid, 70/30, VG/PG. It comes only in a single 120ml bottle and has three nicotine strengths 0mg, 3mg, 6mg.
Water Cup takes a simple, everyday thing like a disposable cup, and imagines it filled with the ripest, fresh-cut fruits that nature can offer. Water Cup is a strangely-named e-juice from Broke Dick, as its name does not bring to mind anything savory, thirst-quenching or delicious.
The “water cup” in question does not have anything to do with water. The juice imagines you at a party, in the summer. At the center of this party is a punch bowl, overflowing with fruit and the tell-tale color red of only the most refreshing, sweetest and mouth-watering fruit punch.
Water Cup blends fruit punch flavors with other fruity delights like orange and watermelon to give a complete sampling of all the best flavors. Water Cup is a high-VG e-juice, 70/30, VG/PG. It comes only in a 120ml bottle and has three nicotine strengths on offer, 0mg, 3mg, and 6mg.
Apart from the eleven titles in the regular Broke Dick roster, BD also creates five individual products for its Limited Edition line. These unique blends cost a little more, but once they have gained a following, BD orders all their ingredients in bulk, which then lowers the price to the standard BD price.
The five juices currently under the Limited Edition label:
Pink Lemonade – Berry and citrus flavors combine in a refreshing vape perfect for hot summer days
Sangria – Another summer treat, this juice combines the fruitiness of freshly-made sangria with little bits of cherry, pineapple, and grapes swimming around in it
Blue Raspberry – A candy-inspired vape juice with tart overtones thanks to the melange of berries
Frozen Account (Menthol) – Mint, mint and more mint. That’s all there is to say. The vape also pairs well with other juices and flavors.
Almond Tobacco – A unique pairing, to be sure, the vape ends up being a sweet ode to coconut and almond instead, with just a hint of tobacco at the end.
The Story Behind Broke Dick
There is a Broke Dick, its founder Richard Broke. On their website Broke comes clean about how his money troubles got him to start his vape juice company.
He had made the switch from regular cigarettes but was finding that buying e-juice all the time was eating into his beer budget. Vaping was making him broke. He started the company then, as a way to make excellent e-juice that didn’t cost a lot.
Determined to keep costs low, Broke rents (he does not own) a manufacturing facility every time they want to make a particular batch of e-juices. They buy ingredients in bulk and also deliver straight to their customers, so there is no price mark-up.
The Broke Dick philosophy of keeping costs down also figures in his blog, titled Vaping For Cheap, which is centered around keeping vaping affordable. Vapers can learn how to make their e-juices, wrap and re-wrap batteries, so you don’t have to buy new ones, as well as posts on picking the best vape juice.
Broke Dick vs. VapeWild vs. Fuggin Vapor
Vape Wild is more than just e-juices. Their website carries over 150 different e-juices, divided into regular and nicotine salt concoctions, not to mention the 25 other e-juice brands that they also have. Vape Wild also sells a massive amount of vaping gear like pod mods, box mods, and tanks. They have a customer loyalty program and even have a clothing line.
This online vape store is also larger in size and scope than Broke Dick. Fuggin Vapor sells e-juice, vape mods, vape accessories, as well as clothes. They are also located in sunny Florida, like Vape Wild and Broke Dick, and have regular sales as well as a customer loyalty program.
Broke Dick Brand Review: The Final Word
Broke Dick grabs your attention. They also, proudly, do not spend money on advertising or marketing, relying instead on word-of-mouth to attract business. But, still, naming your company Broke Dick is a sure way to get people to notice you.
The entire philosophy behind it is not spending a lot of money if you don’t have to on quality vape juice. You can see this no-frills approach in their small product line, their bare-bones website (not even a Facebook or Instagram account, OMG), and their blog.
And if their sole mission is to make amazing vape juice, then they have succeeded. Despite not having a 100+ product line or a flashy website, Broke Dick pours all of that money into making superior products, that cost much less than other brands and sites.
