#4 Triple Red by FLVR
Mouth-Watering, All-Crimson Flavors
8.5/10 Review score
Triple Red by FLVR combines three, all-red fruit flavors into a single vape juice. The tastes range from the savory and delicious to the tart and pungent. The three main profiles of this juice come from watermelon, strawberry, and raspberry. Vapers will first notice the watermelon. It bursts out of the cloud, like a watermelon exploding on impact after falling from a great height. This fruity impact is followed up by the strawberry notes, which are the prelude to final, sour notes that finish-up on the exhale.
Triple Red is available in a single 100ml bottle with three nicotine strengths. Users can choose from 0mg, 3mg, 6mg.
#5 WildFire by Propaganda Salts
Feed the Fire
8/10 Review score
This nicotine-salt e-juice combines almonds and tobacco to create a unique, taste-bomb of flavors. Throw chocolate cookies, roasted almost and tobacco into the mix, and WildFire is what comes out. The vape begins with the unmistakable sweetness of baker-quality chocolate.
The inhale then reveals more profiles as the sweet chocolate gives way to the nutty deliciousness of subtle tobacco and almonds. The exhale brings all the flavors together for that sure-fire throat hit that comes with all tobacco-based e-juices. WildFire from Propaganda Salts comes in a single 30ml bottle. Users can choose from two nicotine salts strengths, 35mg and 50mg.

Vape Vibe vs. The Juul
The Juul brand is known the world over and has become one of the most popular e-cigarette brands. The Juul device is a closed-system device for vaping a patented nicotine salt formulation that offers users either a 20mg or 50mg nicotine strength.
Juul operates internationally, and the device is available in many specialty vape shops, but also standard retail shops like Walmart and Target. The Juul had several pod flavors to go along with the device. Still, the company recently suspended sales of the fruit or dessert-flavored pods in response to a severe epidemic of teenage vaping.
Vape Vibe vs. Vape Chemist
Vape Chemist is an all-vape juice company that claims to make the Best Mango-flavored e-juice of all. Vape Chemist features several lines, including the Legacy and Pound Cake versions of its Philippine Mango, which is its flagship e-juice.
The Vape Chemist brand has been around since 2013. The company has a facility in California that is an ISO 7 cleanroom that makes all its e-juice with high-quality ingredients sourced in the US. The company offers free shipping on all orders over $50, but it is a familiar brand and is available at all online e-juice companies.
Final Thoughts: Vape Vibe Review: Nothing But Good Vape Vibes
Vape Vibe may not be a well-known international brand, but it is famous among the community of vapers that it serves in Pennsylvania. Like other stores that start local and then move online, Vape Vibe cemented its customer base through its physical locations, which then gave it name-recognition once it began to sell online.
The brand is more focused on e-juice than on specific vape gear like box mods, RDAs, and mech mods. The hardware that it sells is geared more toward beginners and low-key vaping, rather than cloud-chasing, sub-ohm behemoths.
But if vapers are looking for an excellent e-juice selection – regular or nicotine salt – then Vape Vibe’s wide-ranging selection will help them find what they are looking for.

I love the written word, and in my career as a journalist, I strive to provide the facts about everything I write about. There are too many false and alarmist stories out there about life and vaping mainly. My mission is to make e-cigarettes less scary to people with informative articles and extensive research on not only the possible evils of cigarettes and Big Tobacco, but the objective side of e-cigs.
