You won’t be disappointed!

Bacon E-Liquid

Bacon e-liquid is a novelty flavour that you must try, especially if you are already a bacon-lover. This is a very popular e-liquid on the vaping market has a strong scent, and it is flavoured just like maple and brown sugar bacon.

Cucumber E-Liquid

The cucumber e-liquid is an extremely refreshing and satisfying flavour that will make your taste buds very happy. This flavour works as both a novelty flavour as well as an all-day vape.

It also tastes quite delicious all by itself.

Roast Beef E-Liquid

Roast Beef e-liquid is another must-try novelty flavour. It tastes exactly like roast beef, so it usually is not used as an all-day vape, and it does not mix well with most other e-liquid flavours. This is a perfect e-liquid to keep on hand to vape with your friends every once in a while.

The ingredients are not listed, but most people that love Boba’s Bounty e-liquid state that the flavour reminds them of sweet treats such as brownies or chocolate cake.

Either way, it is an extraordinary e-liquid that you must try if you are looking for some adventure.
