Vaping Diaries #382: Fruit by the Ounce E-Liquid (ECC 2016)

Fruit by the Ounce E-Liquid Juice

Fruit by the Ounce is the first line of vaping e-liquid from E-Liquid by the Ounce. As you’ve probably inferred, the flavors are fruit-based and the bottles are large. You won’t find any wimpy 15-milliliter bottles here. Instead, Fruit by the Ounce comes in whopping two-ounce bottles (that’s 60 milliliters for people in countries that sensibly use the metric system). While fruit vapes usually leave me with a profound sense of ennui, I was impressed by these flavors. They’re refreshing, accurate, and skillfully blended.

Fruit by the Ounce Official Descriptions

Before I get into my impressions of these vape juices, here are the official flavor descriptions.

  • Peach Lemonade: Tangy, crisp lemonade tempered by the soft mellow sweetness of freshly picked peaches. Freshly brewed and served in a cold glass.
  • Strawberry Guava: Fresh, ruby red strawberries and sweet, syrupy guava nectar blended together. Refreshing, tasty, and just the right mix of tropical.
  • Blueberry Pomegranate: Made with an alluring combination of tart, red pomegranates and sweet, ripe blueberries. Perfectly blended together to make a classic smoothie.
My Take on Fruit by the Ounce

I’ve vaped a few milliliters of each Fruit by the Ounce flavorĀ and I was surprised by how much I enjoyed them. My preference for fruit vapes is light to moderate sweetness with an emphasis on natural flavors. Artificial and candy fruit vapes are gross to me. With all of that in mind, Fruit by the Ounce knocked it out of the park with these flavors.

Peach Lemonade: I’m a sucker for peach. It’s probably my third-favorite fruit in the world. The company did a great job of mixing the tartness of lemonade with the rich sweetness of peach. While I very much enjoyed this flavor and thought it would be my favorite, it was actually second-best for me.

Strawberry Guava: This was the biggest surprise of the bunch. I’m apprehensive of strawberry vapes, since the SoCal vape scene abused the flavor in 2014, boring thousands of tastebuds across the state. What I really enjoyed about this flavor was the guava. The strawberry is pleasant, but the bittersweetness of the guava really made this one for me. It’s one of the most interesting fruit vapes I’ve tried in years. To my surprise and delight, this was my favorite Fruit by the Ounce e-liquid.

Blueberry Pomegranate: While I enjoyed this flavor, it was slightly lacking for me in the pomegranate department. I enjoy the tangy tartness of pomegranate and wanted more of it in this e-liquid. However, I understand the mix that the juice maker used. The blend absolutely works for mainstream vapers that know pomegranate from Jamba Juice shakes (as opposed to whole fruit).

As mentioned in the intro, Fruit by the Ounce e-liquids come in two-ounce bottles. They’re available in 0, 3, and 6 milligrams of nicotine. If you’re the least bit interested in fruit vapes then I highly recommend giving this line a shot.
