Menthol is one of the world’s most fun chemical compounds. It stimulates the body’s cold receptors even though it isn’t actually cold. Menthol is typically extracted from peppermint, and it’s the reason why things like toothpaste, breath spray and minty snacks leave the mouth feeling cool and fresh despite the fact that they don’t actually alter your temperature at all.
Menthol is also incredibly popular as a flavoring agent, and that’s evidenced in the wide variety of menthol vape juice that we carry here at Vape Juice. In addition, the best thing about menthol e-liquid is that the vape juice makers of the world are using menthol more creatively than ever these days. In the early days of vaping, menthol e-liquid came in two forms: Menthol-tobacco and menthol-mint.
These days, though, vape juice companies are infusing their e-liquids with small amounts of menthol – or other cooling agents like Koolada – to add iciness to their e-juices without significantly changing their flavors. That technique has given rise to vape juices with flavors resembling ice creams, frozen slushes and more.
If you’ve never tried the new generation of fruit-and-ice vape juices, you’re in for a real treat because menthol e-liquid has never been better than it is right now. If you didn’t like the early generation of menthol-and-tobacco vape juices, you may think that you aren’t a fan of menthol e-liquid – but that’s only because you haven’t tried what’s available today.
These are the most delicious ice vape juices for summer.
Cush Man by Nasty Juice
Cush Man by Nasty Juice is arguably the most famous ice vape juice on the market. In case you’re unfamiliar with recent trends in the e-liquid industry, the market for e-juice in Malaysia is huge. Malaysia has a very high population of smokers, and those smokers have latched on to vaping in a big way. More importantly in terms of how the Malaysian market has impacted the vaping community at large, Malaysians love menthol. If Malaysian vape juice makers didn’t invent the concept of the fruit-and-ice vape juice, it’s definitely fair to say that they popularized it. You can thank companies like Nasty Juice for bringing that trend to the masses.
Cush Man by Nasty Juice is arguably the most famous of all Malaysian e-liquids. That’s not just because Cush Man uses an incredibly tasty and juicy mango flavor as its base, although that’s certainly true. It’s also because, for vapers in America, this e-liquid’s blend of mango and light cooling is a real eye opener for anyone trying it for the first time. Just when you might start to think that the vape juice makers of the world are running out of ideas, you try something like this and realize that, at any point, someone with a creative new idea can come along and change everything. Cush Man is a real legend.
Strawberry Watermelon Bubblegum on Ice by Drip More
For the next vape juice on our list, we move from a legend of the Malaysian e-liquid scene to a true American Classic. Strawberry Watermelon Bubblegum on Ice by Drip More is the menthol version of the most popular candy vape juice here at Vape Juice. How popular is Strawberry Watermelon Bubblegum? It’s so legendary that it has nearly twice as many customer reviews as the next most popular candy vape juice. That’s a whole lot of bottles flowing out of our warehouse every day.
So, what is it that makes this e-liquid such a perfect ice vape juice for summer? Well, if you’re a person of a certain age, it’s likely that you remember the bi-colored bubblegum craze from a few decades ago. All at once, seemingly all of the world’s chewing gum makers released gums with stripes, layers and rolls of various flavors. Of those, the most popular product was definitely the strawberry-and-watermelon gum that was green on the outside and red in the middle. You can still buy that gum today, and Drip More has recreated that flavor perfectly in vapor form. The great part is that, with e-liquid, the flavor never disappears – and the even better part is that the blast of chilly menthol in this e-liquid makes your favorite candy flavor even more refreshing.
Island Ice Cannon by Rockt Punch
When we think of the quintessential thirst-quenching beverages of summer, two things immediately come to mind – aside from beer, of course. One of those is lemonade, and you can bet that we’ll be naming the world’s best lemonade e-liquid in this article. The other, though, is fruit punch. There is nothing quite like a big jug of sweet, red liquid in which the fruit flavors are so perfectly blended that it’s impossible to tell where one fruit ends and the next one begins. What are the signature flavors of tropical fruit punch? Some of the most popular flavors include apple, grape, pineapple and guava – but every fruit punch is a unique jewel that should be treasured.
Island Ice Cannon by Rockt Punch is easily one of the most refreshing fruit punch e-liquids that you’ll ever try. This vape juice is a quintessential tropical fruit punch flavor with a good amount of sweetness and a strong hit of citrus to provide ample refreshment during the hot summer months. The real star of the show here, though, is the tasteful application of menthol that’ll make you feel just like you’re drinking a real fruit punch on ice while lounging next to the pool.
Iced Pink Punch by Lemon Twist
What’s the other quintessential beverage of summer? It’s lemonade, of course! Sour beverages have a certain magic that somehow makes them seem even more refreshing than other drinks. On those really hot, muggy days, there are times when it feels like nothing but a tall, icy glass of lemonade can fully quench your thirst.
Iced Pink Punch by Lemon Twist is a lemonade vape juice, obviously, but since we’re talking about Lemon Twist, you know this e-liquid is going to have something special that sets it apart from the pack. Lemon Twist is an e-liquid label specializing solely in lemon e-liquids, and you know that they’re not going to do anything ordinary. This vape juice begins with a perfectly sweet and sour lemonade base – naturally – but it spices things up with some delightfully complex berry notes to create that perfect pink lemonade flavor profile. A bit of menthol completes the experience and delivers supreme refreshment that lasts all day.
Cran Apple Juice Iced by Loaded
The tart flavor of lemon might be magic on those hot summer days, but there are some who would say that the flavor of cranberry is even better. You’ve probably bought more than a few of those delicious cranberry juice cocktails at the supermarket, and if that’s the case, you’re probably aware that a traditional cranberry juice cocktail pairs cranberry juice with apple juice. It’s the perfect pairing because it creates a flavor profile that’s packed with plenty of sweetness and tartness. The apple juice also softens the bitter edge of the cranberry juice without necessitating the addition of sugar.
No e-liquid on the market delivers the authentic experience of drinking a real cranberry juice cocktail like Cran Apple Juice Iced by Loaded. Every devoted fan of cranberry juice knows that the best way to drink nature’s delicious red elixir is on ice or right out of a cold refrigerator, and this e-liquid’s blast of cool menthol pairs wonderfully with the fruity base to keep you satisfied during the hottest summer days.
Frzn Chee by BLVK Unicorn
Many of the e-liquids presented in this list of the best ice vape juices for summer have blended sweet and sour notes for serious thirst-quenching refreshment. There are some days, though, when a vape juice with a sour edge isn’t quite what you want. Sometimes, what you really want is something that delivers an experience more like that of enjoying a frozen dessert. That’s what you’ll get with Frzn Chee by BLVK Unicorn.
If you haven’t been fortunate enough to visit a tropical locale like the Hawaiian Islands, it’s possible that you haven’t had an opportunity to experience the completely unique flavor of lychee. Lychee doesn’t travel very well, so it’s rare to find it offered for sale far from the places in which it’s grown. When you finally do try lychee, the next thing you’ll discover is that it isn’t always easy to eat the strange, hairy fruit. You need to use a paring knife to slice gently through the skin without piercing the fruit, and then you discover that there isn’t actually much fruit because most of what’s inside the skin is the very large seed. Sounds like a lot of work, right? That’s why fruit juice is one of the most popular uses for lychee; it’s a great addition to fruit punch. Nothing in the world tastes quite like lychee, and no vape juice captures that flavor quite as well as Frzn Chee.
