Vape Review | Fresh Pressed Salts - Fruit Finale

I know I’ve previously talked about how much I hate ambiguous vape flavours, but Fruit Finale is truly something else. It sounds so ominous and mysterious. I’ve reached the end of my vaping journey and have to battle against the big dog himself. This then leaves the question of which fruit would be the last fruit you’d want to fight? For me, I think it would be a grapefruit. That shit is powerful, man. I mean it sounds so lovely and sweet but it can seriously fuck you up, especially if you’re on the pill or pregnant. On the box of this vape juice, it has a little picture of a watermelon, lime, grapefruit, and orange. I don’t know if that’s gonna taste good together or not, but hey, I’m getting free vape juice so beggars can’t be choosers.

This vape juice is 12mg strength of nic salts, which is the perfect amount of nicotine strength. It’s strong enough to give you a slight headrush, but not too strong that it overpowers the flavour. On first impression, the flavour is quite subtle, but you can tell that there is a lot to unpack. Instead of a punch to the lungs upon first lung-sip, it just gently coats them with the taste of Fresh Up. You can taste a lot of stone fruit flavours without it leaving an awful aftertaste in your mouth. Critic staff writer Sophia admired how it tasted like juice concentrate without being awful, while Critic Designer Molly noted how “it tastes like how St Ives Apricot face scrub smells” (side note, that scrub is very bad for your skin and we warn against using it). Illustrator Asia said she liked the fruitiness of it, but noted how derivative and similar it was to other flavours. However, I would have to say that this flavour is more complex than others we have tried. Every hit tastes like a different fruit, begging for you to try one more sip.

Overall, this has to be up there with the best flavours we have reviewed. It’s not overbearing, but also not boring. It reminds me of the feeling of finding a reading that directly relates to the essay topic you’re writing about. It makes you feel warm, refreshed, and healthy at the same time. I would recommend this juice if you’re feeling like you want to spice up your life a bit with something pleasant, but challenging.  

Tasting notes: The health benefits of Arbonne supplements without the sketchy pyramid scheme aspect.

Makes you feel: Surprisingly good and healthy.

Pairs Well With: One of those Traffic Light drinks you used to get from Cobb & Co.
