It’s been a challenging year, but it’s finally summer. As the temperatures hit the mid to high 20s, it’s an excellent time to sit back and vape some smooth Froot flavours.
Here i’ll take a look at 5 Froot e-liquids that are made for sub-ohm vapers.
Who Are Froot?
Froot launched on the East Coast of America in 2016 with one flavour: Froot Razberi. The ethos of the company is all about simplicity. Their tagline is “Freshly Pressed Juice, No Gimmicks, Just Froot.”
One of the first things that I loved about Froot is the product design. Especially the boxes for Black and Picoberri. It’s just so straightforward and clean. The boxes are beautiful too, with little cartoon pictures of the relevant flavour.
The Allure Series is Froot’s new line of flavours. It also features an impressive design; but, for me, it lacks the impact of the simple white boxes. A more complicated, busier design is probably more appropriate for the Allure series’ more experimental approach of fusing some unusual vape flavours.
Additionally, they are 70% VG / 30% PG. This ratio means that they are designed for sub-ohm vaping. And finally, these e-liquids are now made in the UK
OK, let’s get started.
Froot’s Picoberi is a blend of pineapple, coconut and strawberry. When I read the ingredients, I immediately thought about strawberry pina coladas. I love pina coladas, and the addition of strawberry works, so I was pretty happy to try this.
This flavour certainly has a tropical island holiday feel. The inhale has the distinct taste of pineapple. It’s kind of tangy but not too powerful or sweet, and just the right amount of citrus.
That soon gives way to a soft and creamy coconut taste. And then, on the exhale, the strawberry becomes more present.
Recommended For: Anyone who needs to be transported away to a tropical holiday. Or anyone who likes a fruity e-liquid.
Meshing with the minimal packaging and stripped back feel, the next Froot flavour is Black. Black-what you say? Blackcurrants on the inhale, with black cherries on the exhale. Again, I’m a big fan of this.
The blackcurrant has a tart and earthy taste. Froot uses a mix of natural and synthetic flavours in their juice, which certainly has an inartificial flavour.
The inhale doesn’t change too dramatically. The black cherry is also tart, but a sweet fruitiness breaks through.
Recommended For: Vapers who like a more subtle, natural sweet juice.
Continuing the theme of cocktails my girlfriend probably likes, Froot Grapefruit Elderflower is up next. The first thing to hit me about the juice is that it smells unmistakably of grapefruit. With e-liquids, often, they don’t smell of whatever they are claiming to be. But this one is different.
The taste is excellent. I’m a huge fan of grapefruit, and I regularly mix it with carrot in my cold press juicer. It’s sharp, distinct, and bitter, and for me, far more complex than some of the other acidic fruits. I say all this because I would recommend this juice to anyone; however, grapefruit is a somewhat divisive taste.
As for the elderflower, it’s there, but it’s not overwhelming. Elderflower is a strange taste, slightly floral, slightly aromatic, but with a hint of sweetness.
Anyway, this is undoubtedly one of the most unique and captivating e-liquid flavours I’ve tasted. It’s not gimmicky; it’s just good.
Recommended For: Anyone who likes grapefruit as much as I do, or anybody who enjoys a fruit flavour but nothing too sugary or sickly.
Apple, mint and lemongrass. Some would say that a house is not a home without these three ingredients. So I was pretty excited to see a juice that marries all three of them together — but also not quite sure how it would work.
But I shouldn’t have worried because this is a great e-liquid. The apple flavour used is slightly sweet, with the slightest hint of bitterness.
The exhale is where things are great exciting because of the lemongrass and mint. These two flavours make a good pair because the mint enhances the lemongrass.
Lemongrass has such a distinct taste. If you eat lots of Thai food, you’ll already be familiar with it. Slightly citrus, slightly lemon, but very earthy and herbal. Froot hasn’t overplayed it here, and it’s nice and subtle on the exhale.
Recommended For: Anyone who is bored of traditional flavours and looking out for something new and unique. A subtle and distinctive flavour for sophisticated fruit lovers.
Blueberry and rhubarb make a great pairing. I’ve had it in muffins, pies, cakes and jams. Blueberry is quite tart but has a natural sweetness, while rhubarb has an earthy sourness that is hard to describe. Typically whenever we eat it, its taste is counteracted or covered with lots and lots of sugar.
However, Froot hasn’t exactly gone for that type of rhubarb. Interestingly, they have chosen to represent it as it is and counteract it with the sweeter end of the blueberry. This juice is one of the best e-liquid flavours I’ve tasted.
It’s an excellent sweet and sour combination, rich in the inhale and slightly acidic on the exhale. But, like all the Froot e-liquids, it’s a very smooth blend.
Recommended For: If you like sweet flavours, but you find the desert type e-liquids a bit too much. This juice is a well-balanced blend of sweet and sour taste, and the rhubarb touch is perfect.
The biggest impression I’m left with having tried a bunch of the Froot range is that it’s an e-liquid range for adults. Lots of e-liquids come with really over the top and flashy designs, bursting with wild colour palettes. And often, the flavours seem like they are geared towards a younger audience, with desert and sweet shop flavours.
Froot is not that kind of company. Instead, they specialise in stripped-back, sophisticated, natural flavours that taste really smooth. The design is excellent, and overall you get the feeling that lots of thought and consideration have gone into the products. While Froot may best know them for their superb Razberi flavour, they’ve got a whole lot more to offer. So, check them out; you won’t be disappointed.
