Happy Friday, Ladies and Gents! It’s the end of the week, which means one thing: it’s Flavor Friday! This week we are focusing on one of our most delicious vape juices, Huckleberry Ice Cream E-Juice! Let’s start going over this premium vape juice by looking at its description on MBV’s website, “Deliciousness has a story. It must! The story of Huckleberry Ice Cream, a creamy blend of mountain huckleberries and vanilla ice cream began years ago on the shore of a great river and should end in your vape.”
The huckleberry is actually a North American name for a English word used to describe the bilberry. The bilberry’s name in England was ‘hurtleberry’ or ‘whortleberry’ and in North America, this name applied to several variations of the same species. This berry is red, blue or black. It is the common name for the species Gaylussacia, certain Vaccinium berries and in some regions huckleberries (also Vaccinium), are referred to as blueberries.
Native Americans collected huckleberries all along the West coast of North America for both food and traditional medicine. Many describe huckleberries as large, dark blueberries and some variations have a similar taste albeit a bit more tart. In terms of traditional medicine, huckleberries have been used for pain, the heart, and infections.
In 1900-1925, many Northern Americans traveled t0 Montana to pick their famous huckleberries during the Winter. These families were known as hucks. In the 1930s and 1940s, huge camps popped up in Northern Montana. In 1910, there was a huge forest fire which created the optimal conditions for the growth of the berries due to increased light on the forest floor and increased nutrients in the soil released by the fire. These camps were reminiscent of the boomtowns during the gold rush and many times they only last a few weeks to a couple months. Often times, however, they would yield truckloads of huckleberries!
So, now that you’ve had a rundown of huckleberry history, you can vape Huckleberry Ice Cream E-Juice knowing the rich past of the interesting little berry! Check out reviews of Huckleberry Ice Cream E-Juice below:
Huckleberry Ice Cream E-Juice Reviews
At first, it took a little getting used to. I didn’t know what huckleberry was supposed to taste like and when I think ice cream, I don’t really think of what this tastes like. It doesn’t really taste like ice cream in my opinion. But it does taste like a really great blend of berry and creamy/custardy IF you don’t mind that berry being in the tangy/tart spectrum. It’s not like a rasberry or blackberry but more like a sour/tart version of a blueberry. Still sweet though. I’ve only had one bottle and unfortunately my bottles of other flavors havn’t aslways tasted 100% consistent, but based on the last bottle – It’s a contender for my favorite so far. Definitely in the top few.
I’ll preface by saying I had no idea what a huckleberry was before buying this juice. I find my palette gravitating toward creamy dessert flavors these days, and I’m so happy I tried this.
The inhale had a subtle, but prominent blueberry/raspberry (without the tart zing) flavor. The exhale is a smooth, creamy custard/vanilla flavor.
In short, it’s utterly outstanding. Many of these flavors can be cloying and overdone- good for hit it and quit it vape sessions- this is not one of them, I use it all day. The cloud output is outstanding for a 50/50 PG/VG blend. I’d err with more PG on this one- much less and I’d worry about losing the flavor. There’s certainly no shortage of clouds on my Kanger Subvod.
Reviewed On: blue label (pre steeped) bottle, 12mg, 50% PG/50% VG.
