Have you recently switched from a pre-filled pod vaping system such as the JUUL to a system with refillable pods? If you have, an entirely new world has just opened up to you. All at once, you’ve gone from a selection of just a few different e-liquid flavors to a seemingly infinite assortment. You’ll have the best possible experience if you use a nicotine salt e-liquid with your pod system, of course, but every e-liquid maker knows that pod systems are the hottest thing going right now – so even if you’re only looking at nicotine salt e-liquids, there’s still hundreds of flavors out there. So, let’s get sampling!
Whether you’re new to the nicotine salt party or an old hand in the pod vaping scene, you’ll find something here to love. These are the best new nicotine salt e-liquids of 2020.
Peanut Butter Banana Granola Bar by Yogi E-Liquid
$9.95 / 30 ML – Buy It Now
Compared to the rest of the vaping industry, the nicotine salt segment of the market is still in its relatively early days. So far, most of the nicotine salt e-liquids that companies have released have simply been nicotine salt versions of existing popular e-liquids, sometimes with their flavor profiles recalibrated to deliver a good experience with a pod system. Once in a while, though, you find a nicotine salt e-liquid with a flavor profile that’s totally out of left field. A granola bar in e-liquid form? You can definitely count us in for that!
Peanut Butter Banana Granola Bar has a wonderful base flavor of granola with toasted oats and a hint of brown sugar. The granola bar base lends a welcome touch of nutty complexity to everything that follows, and what follows is the incredibly decadent combination of peanut butter and banana. Oats, peanut butter and banana are three very uncommon flavor notes in the e-liquid world, and this juice blends all of them in one place. If you’re on the hunt for the unusual, this is your next all-day vape right here.
Grape by BLVK Unicorn Salts
$8.95 / 30 ML – Buy It Now
If you really think about it, it takes some guts to release an e-liquid with just one flavor note. These days, everybody wants to see creative blends and complex flavor profiles. Part of that is just because the tastes of the vaping community have matured, and everyone is on the hunt for new flavor experiences. When you consider things more deeply, though, another reason why so many e-liquid makers create such complex blends is because it’s really difficult to create a vape juice with just one flavor note that actually tastes true to life. E-liquids are flavored with extracts, after all – not with actual foods. You could never expect grape extract, for instance, to taste like an actual grape – could you?
Grape by BLVK Unicorn Salts is an e-liquid that defies conventions and is about to redefine what you believe is possible in an e-liquid. Through the clever blending of various grape flavors from a variety of different flavor purveyors, the folks at BLVK Unicorn have managed to come up with an e-liquid that tastes surprisingly like actual grapes or grape juice. Grape is one of the most difficult flavors to capture in an e-liquid, and most of the vape juice makers who set out to develop grape flavors just end up making grape slush and grape bubblegum e-liquids. It’s always good to know that there’s someone out there in the e-liquid industry working hard to push the envelope, and this is a vape juice that actually succeeds.
Luau Lemonade by I Love Salts
$9.50 / 30 ML – Buy It Now
In continuing this list of the best nicotine salt e-liquids with Luau Lemonade by I Love Salts, we move from one flavor profile that’s difficult to execute in an e-liquid to one that’s arguably even harder. Citrus e-liquids have been around almost since the beginning, and they’ve always tasted very true to life. True to life, that is, if you enjoy vaping furniture polish! The fact is that most citrus e-liquids – and lemon e-liquids in particular – are actually horrible. Though the intrepid e-liquid makers of the world try their best, it’s really hard to create a lemon e-liquid that doesn’t taste like vaping a can of Pledge.
Luau Lemonade by I Love Salts, however, is one of the rare vape juices that actually manages to pull off a superb lemon vaping experience. While so many other lemon e-liquids deliver an off-putting citrus oil flavor, Luau Lemonade tempers the sour edge of the lemon with a delicious pineapple note that gives the e-liquid a welcome tropical flair. On the finish, a hint of watermelon completes this perfect island-style experience.
Dragonthol by Solace Nicotine Salts
$8.95 / 30 ML – Buy It Now
Grown in tropical regions such as Hawaii, the dragon fruit tastes a little like a kiwi but is much milder in flavor and lacks kiwi’s characteristic tartness. Dragon fruit is also incredibly juicy, and red varieties are vividly colored – which makes them extremely popular additions to smoothies. Thanks to its highly unusual appearance, dragon fruit is also a common prop used in pretty much every science fiction TV series ever.
If you haven’t been fortunate enough to try a dragon fruit smoothie blended with a bit of ice, Dragonthol by Solace is your opportunity to experience that flavor in e-liquid form. Unlike most of the dragon fruit e-liquids on the market – which tend to blend dragon fruit with so many other flavors that the dragon fruit note becomes muddled and hard to taste – this e-liquid is simple and straightforward enough that it never confuses or overwhelms the palate. It’s definitely got that all-day vape quality if you’re looking for a cool, fruity vape juice with a flavor profile that’s a bit out of the ordinary.
7 Pound Up Cake by Salty Man
$8.95 / 30 ML – Buy It Now
The classic American pound cake is a dessert recipe so simple that even a non-cook could recite it: one pound each of flour, butter, eggs and sugar. The eggs provide the cake’s only source of leavening, trapping air that expands as the cake bakes. When it comes out of the oven, you have a cake that’s dense but soft, moist and very sweet. If you don’t watch yourself, you’ll also gain a pound each time you bake one!
Pound cake has a wonderfully neutral flavor that goes with just about everything, a fact that obviously served as the inspiration behind 7 Pound Up Cake by Salty Man. What does this vape juice taste like? Imagine eating a thick slice of warm pound cake with a big dollop of lemon-and-lime curd served on top, and you’ll be pretty close. Since it features plenty of sweetness, this is definitely the vape juice for you if you like a citrus e-liquid without a sour edge. This vape juice is a great choice if you’re craving a dessert e-liquid that brings something a little different to the table.
Iota by Alternativ Salts
$8.50 / 30 ML – Buy It Now
How could any list of the best nicotine salt e-liquids of 2020 possibly be complete without mentioning a nicotine salt e-liquid? Before JUUL discontinued most of their pod flavors in the United States, the company’s mango pod flavor might have been America’s most popular e-liquid. Now that JUUL’s mango pods are off the market, there is a huge void in the world of e-liquid waiting to be filled. We think that Iota by Alternativ Salts is a legitimate contender for that crown.
If you’re going to create a truly great mango vape juice for the modern vaping community, the last thing that you want to do is develop a one-note mango e-liquid that doesn’t have anything else going for it. That’s not the way to create a truly unique product that people want to return to again and again – and being veterans of the industry, the people at Alternativ understand that. They’ve decided to set their mango e-liquid apart from the rest with a splash of sweet Georgia peach, giving this vape juice a wonderful combination of orchard flavors and tropical flavors in a single bottle.
Strawberry Macaroon by Dinner Lady Salts
$7.00 / 30 ML – Buy It Now
Dinner Lady is one of the most famous e-liquid brands in the United Kingdom, and their expertise with dessert e-liquid flavors have given them fame extending far beyond their native country. You might think that it would be too difficult to pull off a legitimate dessert e-liquid flavor for small pod-based devices, but you should never put anything past Dinner Lady when it comes to dessert flavors.
The French macaron is perhaps one of the most perfect desserts ever devised. It’s a simple sandwich cookie featuring the ethereal texture of egg whites and the seductive flavor of sweet almonds. The flavor of the macaron is neutral enough that it goes with almost anything, and you can find macarons with just about every type of filling you can possibly imagine. Dinner Lady used that idea as their inspiration for this e-liquid, adding a strawberry jam filling that’ll have you licking your lips with delight.
