Vape Review | Simply Salts Berries

I’ve been through a lot in my lifetime, but I have never felt more devastated than when they stopped selling fruit roll-ups at the supermarket. Those sheets of artificial fruit plastic were outstanding. I remember going to Pak’nSave and begging my mum to buy a packet after getting the free slice of deli luncheon. Trading roll-up patterns with your friends at lunch time, those were the good ol’ days. Anyway, whenever I get some kind of berry flavoured vape juice, it just reminds me of a vapour form of fruit roll-ups. Needless to say, this always sets my expectations at an all-time high, hoping that this juice will bring back the simpler days of my youth. For this week’s review, we’ve got the Simply Salts Berries flavour.

On first impression, the bottle of vape juice itself has this weird texture that kind of feels like a vibrator, sticky yet smooth at the same time. The packaging is nice and simple, which I guess is what you want from a brand called ‘Simply Salts’. The Vape Shop hooked us up with the 20mg nic salts juice, and boy am I ready to get fucked up on a mad headrush. In terms ofit’s flavour, this juice is fucking nice. There’s no way to tell what specific berry flavours are actually in this juice, but it still tastes all good. Flatmate Michaela described it as “tasting like Nerds”, and sexy boyfriend Kyle noted that it tastes like a “real fruit blueberry ice-cream”.  The general consensus is that this flavour is fruity and refreshing, but not too overpowering. However, the 20mgs of juice is quite strong. Almost everyone coughed when trying it, due to the high intensity of nicotine concentrate. But then again, we’re probably just babies with popcorn lung.

I would say that the Simply Salts range of juices are the best if you’re new to vaping, and unsure of what flavour to get. Everyone already has some preconceived notion of what berries taste like, and that's what you get with this juice. It’s a nice and basic flavour, but sometimes that’s all you need for a vape. In terms of its comparison to tasting like fruit roll-ups, I would say that it’s almost spot on. Maybe they just use the same artificial flavouring for both things? I don’t know, I’m no scientist. I’m just a lousy vape review columnist. Anyway, this juice is pretty all good, and I would definitely get it again in a lower strength.
