Looking for something sweet, fresh and different? A fruity e-liquid could be just what you need!
From berries to bananas, fruit flavourings are the key ingredient in some of the UK’s most popular e-liquids. Fruit vape mixologists are drawing inspiration from all over the world, picking distinct exotic fruit flavours which are then layered with subtle notes of menthol, bubblegum and even cream to come out with some exceptional results.
Whether you’re new to fruit flavours or looking for something different, this guide has it all! You can pick from one of the top 10 best selling e-liquids in 2021 (so far), or try out some of the weird and wonderful lesser-known juices that are worth exploring.
Best-Selling Fruit Flavoured E-Liquids
We totted up the sales of every fruit-flavoured e-liquid brand on our own site for the first 3 months of 2021 (1 Jan 2021 to 31 Mar 2021). ASAP Grape by Nasty Juice took the top spot, with Drooly by Clown Liquids taking silver and Farley’s Gnarly Sauce by Bad Drip Labs coming third:
The Top 10 Fruit Flavours
Berries feature heavily in our top ten, and candy pairings are becoming more popular, too. As the nic salts market opens up, flavours are getting more intense. Overall, this is a good year to get into fruity vape juices! Let’s look at every bestseller in turn...
1: ASAP Grape
This delicious all-day vape has already claimed the top spot on our Menthol bestsellers list, so it’s no surprise that it leads the pack on our fruit flavour list, too. With ASAP Grape, the mixologists at Nasty Juice have taken a black grape flavour base and enriched it with notes of mixed berry and menthol. The result is a delicious all-day vape that earns its place at the top of the bestseller list. If you’re new to fruity e-liquids, then ASAP Grape is a great place to start. Nicotine addicts don’t need to dilute the flavour profile with this one. Nasty Salts have launched an ASAP Grape salt pairing which keeps the flavour really punchy.
Drooly by Clown Liquids is a blend of mixed berry and grapes, just like ASAP Grape, but in this juice the fruits play out on a hard candy flavour base. The result of Drooly’s candy/berry combination is an unashamedly sweet vaping experience that customers love. Drooly also offers its own nic salt pairing: Drooly by Clown Salts
3: Farley’s Gnarly Sauce
With an unusual-but-delicious base of kiwi and strawberry, Farley’s Gnarly Sauce by Bad Drip Labs is a sensational vape. The Bad Drip Labs team have bridged the gap between these two fruit flavours with subtle notes of bubblegum, and the three flavours tie together beautifully. There’s also a salt nicotine pairing if you need it: Farley's Gnarly Sauce by Bad Salts
4: Blackcurrant by Furious Fish
Blackcurrant by Furious Fish E-Liquid does exactly what it says on the tin. This is a full-bodied, powerful blackcurrant flavour with no added extras. There are no other berry, candy or menthol flavours — Blackcurrant by Furious Fish is the pure drop. Thanks to its 50:50 VG/PG ratio, it also wicks quickly and avoids some of the background sweetness of higher VG alternatives (learn more about VG & PG here).
5: Slow Blow
Slow Blow is a tropical-tasting e-liquid that you can comfortably vape all day long. Made by the same people who brought us ASAP Grape, Slow Blow by Nasty Juice combines pineapple, lime and soda with just enough of Nasty Juice’s signature mint to keep it interesting. And just like ASAP Grape, Slow Blow has its own nic salt pairing: Slow Blow by Nasty Salt
6: Bubble Purp
Hailing from the USA, Chubby Bubble Vapes are famous for their moreish range of delicious bubblegum-based e-liquids … and Bubble Purp is their flagship. A delicious grape/bubblegum blend with a sweet aftertaste, grounded in a 70:30 VG/PG ratio, Bubble Purp is a must-try for fans of fruit-candy combos!
Pennywise by Clown Liquids combines refreshing watermelon with ripe strawberry, adding subtle notes of candied bubblegum to give it a sweet moreish quality. This is a great fruit flavour from the makers of Drooly, with a higher-than-average 80VG ratio. You can pair Pennywise with its own salt nic (Pennywise by Clown Salts), or opt for the menthol version (Pennywise Iced Out by Clown Liquids). It’s a great all-day vape that firmly deserves its position in the top 10 rankings.
8: Berry Lemonade
Berry Lemonade by Tasty Fruity is a perfectly-balanced zesty vape juice from Malaysia. A sharp initial hit of citrus is rounded out with sweet berry flavours in a smooth 70VG e-liquid that works beautifully in sub-ohm devices. If you haven’t come across Tasty Fruity E-Liquids before, then you’re in for a treat. From Lychee Apple to Strawberry Orange, their simple fruit combinations are absolutely delicious.
9: God Nectar
With a name like God Nectar, expectations run high for this e-liquid … and the Bad Drip Labs team don’t disappoint! Unlike Farley’s Gnarly Sauce, God Nectar by Bad Drip Labs steers clear of candy flavours altogether and gives us rich clouds of juicy passion fruit, guava, mango and orange. God Nectar truly is a tropical fruit flavoured e-liquid like no other!
10: Strawberry Watermelon Bubblegum
This one is a classic! Candy King’s Strawberry Watermelon Bubblegum started out as a standalone e-liquid, but Candy King have moved it to their Bubble Collection (see the new packet design here). With Strawberry Watermelon Bubblegum, the flavours marry well without becoming too sticky or overpowering. Candy King also have an on-ice and nic salt version.
Five More Fruit Flavours Worth Exploring
These weird and wonderful fruit-based options didn’t make our top 10, but we think they’re worth a look — especially if you’re on the hunt for something different. See what you think:
- Bananza Shake by Milkshake Liquids
- Pear Drops by Furious Fish E Liquid
- Kiwi Red Berry by Element
- Dragon Fruit by Aisu
- Avocado Smoothie by Horny Flava
Still can't decide? Try a Mystery Box!
If you’re still unsure and you don’t want to commit to just one flavour yet, a Mystery Box might be a good option for you. You’ll get a wide range of e-liquids — they won’t all be fruit based — but it’s a great place to start if you’re still finding your feet and figuring out what tastes you like best.
Stay safe and happy vaping!
