This week I’ve got another melon juice into the mix. This one is called Melon Boba from Good Life Vapor – here’s what they say about it:
The best medley of melons infused with a hint of cream as well as a refreshing hint of mint. A blast of relaxing and sweet flavors balanced to perfection.
I’ve got it at 12 mg in a house blend.
This juice has an opaque pink color and smells strongly of watermelon in the bottle.
After smelling this one, and being greeted by a strong rush of melon, I knew it would at least be halfway decent. The flavor is pretty similar to the scent – HEAVY melon. It’s the kind that is so thick it will leave your mouth watering. It has a very subtle hint of mint that I don’t think makes it better or worse. I could pretty much take it or leave it.
The throat hit is OK at 12mg, but not great, and the vapor is pretty good.
The Bottom Line
Taste. If you like really strong melon flavors like Hobbes Blood, this is pretty much in line with that type of juice. The flavor is thick to the point where it will leave your mouth watering and feeling juicy, and it has a remarkably strong and accurate melon presence. The mint is quite light in this one – sometimes I don’t even notice it at all. I don’t think it hurts, but I don’t really think it helps much either. The cream was noticeably absent.
True to Description. Obviously the strong area in this juice is the melon, which they nailed. Now since this juice is called Melon Boba, I have to imagine it’s named after Boba Tea. I have had other Boba Tea vapes that are amazing and accurate. This one, while still tasty, didn’t taste a thing like Boba Tea at all, so in that respect, it’s a pretty big fail. This one is really heavy on the melon and very light on the “Boba” aspect.
Throat Hit. The throat hit was just OK for me at 12mg. It’s good enough where I could probably keep vaping it and be OK, but it’s not the strongest.
Quality of Vape. This is a great juice if you want a rush of really strong flavor. In fact, you aren’t going to find many other juices where the flavor is this thick. Sometimes it’s a good thing, sometimes it’s a bad thing. I don’t always want a super thick and heavy vape, although at times it can be a nice treat. It’s not the kind of thing I would personally want to be vaping all day long because it’s really on the heavy side. Otherwise, it does hit decently well for a 12mg juice and the vapor production is nice.
Overall. Honestly, I think this one came off to me as a similar but inferior Hobbes Blood. It doesn’t gain the extra pop of flavor from the other fruits that Hobbes Blood incorporates, I don’t think the mint helped – and most importantly, I didn’t get any of the Boba, which is what I was really looking forward to the most. Boba is a lighter flavor, so I can see how it would be hard for it to shine when paired with a super strong melon flavor. All in all, this is a good juice, but not a great one.
