Much has changed in the vaping industry over the past year, but one thing will always stay the same: The vapers of the world are still turning the inventories of their favorite vape shops upside down in search of the best vape juice. In this article, we’re going to highlight some of the best e-liquids on the market. Even if you feel like you’ve already tried everything, you’re certain to find a few spectacular flavors that you haven’t tried yet.
So, what has changed in the world of vape juice over the past year? For one thing, tobacco-free nicotine has taken hold and now completely dominates the e-liquid world. The entry of synthetic nicotine into the mainstream marks the true separation of the independent vaping industry from the tobacco industry.
The past year has also seen a great deal of consolidation in the vaping industry, with several larger e-liquid brands quietly buying out the smaller brands. There haven’t been any major new developments in the world of vape juice flavors. Fruit-and-ice combinations, however, have definitely solidified themselves as some of the most popular flavors on the market – especially in disposable vapes. In fact, some brands of disposables now consist almost entirely of fruit-and-ice flavors.
The more things change in the world of vaping, though, the more they stay the same. Hardcore vapers still love great vape juice flavors more than anything else, and they’re always on the hunt for new experiences. Even with all of the industry consolidation that’s happened over the past year, there are still plenty of new experiences to enjoy – and we’ll be talking about several of them in this roundup of the best vape juice on the market. In addition to the many great new e-liquids that have hit the market this year, there are also plenty of old standbys that are as delicious today as they were when they were first released. If you haven’t tried them yet, it’s time to jump in.
These are the best vape juices on the market in 2023.
