This week, I have not one but two banana and berry flavored juices to try. This one is the second one up after Banana Berry Bomb didn’t fare so well. This one is called Blue Banana. Here’s what they say about it:
A fruity flavor you can’t resist! Ever tried the little runts hard candy? This taste just like it! This e liquid back a sweet blueberry taste with sugary candy banana on top. If you enjoy blueberry banana smoothies and little ‘runts’ candies then you have found your premium vape juice. Are blue banana e-liquid is left to soak in the flavor for about one month after we make it. This means you are getting the best taste possible. The blueberries and banana will seep together to form the best taste ever. Nothing hits the spot like our blue banana.
I’ve got this one at 18mg in a house blend.
This juice has an orange color to it and smells strongly of banana in the bottle.
What a change up from the first banana berry flavor I tried this week. While Banana Berry Bomb was noticeably lacking in banana flavor, Blue Banana is absolutely packed with it. Normally when I try banana flavored vapes, the banana is usually mixed with a more rich ingredient like tobacco, chocolate or vanilla. In this case it’s mixed with another fruit, and it really helps the banana to come out nicely. If you’re a banana fan, you will probably love this one.
The Bottom Line
Taste. I get a powerful banana vibe on the inhale. It’s pretty much the only thing I taste, and it’s a nice accurate candy-style banana flavor. The backend has more of a light, fruity vibe to it – I don’t really think it tastes much like blueberry and it does have somewhat of a perfumey aftertaste that I don’t particularly care for. Overall I think this juice is solid as a banana flavor – the perfume on the backend is subtle enough to not get too much in the way of the banana and it is pretty satisfying, but not my favorite either.
True to Description. They made a comparison with Runts candy. I do think the banana has a nice candy-like quality to it, although I don’t know if I would go so far as to say this one is a dead match to a banana runt. The blueberry didn’t come through very well for me and actually I feel like it kind of muddles the banana flavor on the exhale and makes the juice slightly less accurate. It is pretty close overall, but I think it could be better.
Throat Hit. I didn’t have any real issue with the throat hit at 18mg. It wasn’t my favorite ever, but satisfying enough to keep me interested in vaping it.
Quality of Vape. The flavor is good and strong. It does change a bit from inhale to exhale with the banana flavor departing somewhat on the back end and fading to more of a generic berry flavor with a touch of perfume. That said, it is quite full flavored, and the sweetness on it is just right. The throat hit is solid for an 18mg juice, and I was particularly happy with the ample clouds of vapor it produced.
Overall. I’m not a huge banana fan in ejuice to begin with so it takes a lot to impress me. I thought this one had a nice accurate banana flavor that was presented in a way that was actually quite palatable. That said, I didn’t care much for the attempt at the berry infusion and I think this one actually would have been better as a standalone banana flavor. If you’re really big into banana you will probably like this one because the banana component is pretty well done and the juice performs nicely. If you aren’t a huge banana fan, this one probably won’t be enough to convert you.
