Black Friday 2015: ADVs for You and Me

One of the biggest challenges for vapers is finding their ADV. That stands for All Day Vape. It’s a term people use to describe a flavor that they can enjoy for weeks or even months on end. For some people this comes quickly. For others it can be an expensive and often disappointing journey. Today, I’ll give you a few tips to help you along the way. Combined with our Black Friday Sale of 20% off all e-juice (promo code black2015), there’s never been a better time to find your ADV!

The first thing to be aware of is that not all flavors translate well into vapor form. Your favorite dessert might rely heavily on the texture of it. One of my favorite desserts is hot apple crisp with ice cream on it. The contrast of the temperatures and that sweet crunch in every bite are essentially what makes this dessert. For this reason, I’ve never really enjoyed an apple crisp flavor. It can taste like apples and oats, but it can’t simulate that experience.

The next tip I have is to really consider if you could enjoy the flavor all the time. Triple Chocolate Cake is delicious but a few bites and I’m ready to cut chocolate out of my diet for a month. I’m not advocating turkey flavor, but think of the Thanksgiving meal you had yesterday. As delicious as many of those dishes are, if you were vaping mashed potatoes and gravy and (for some strange reason) liked it, your brain would still grow tired of this eventually because that’s a flavor you associate with a big meal and being full.

For me this extends to most dessert flavors. When it comes to desserts I usually pass or have only a couple bites so they are bad candidates for an ADV. But everyone is different and taste is subjective. If you feel like you could eat a piece of cheesecake every day but don’t for other reasons (financial, diet or other) then by all means, Cheesecake vape could be just the right thing for you.

One of the best tips I’ve found is to think of your favorite candy or fruit. Candy and fruit are things we usually consider a snack. It’s not something that makes you feel full and in the case of hard candies, is something that you keep in your mouth for long periods of time. This is one reason why these are probably the easiest categories of flavors to find an ADV in. Another reason is that the flavors used in things like suckers or starburst have very similar profiles to the flavorings available to vaping. For me, I LOVE green apple flavoring. Jolly Ranchers, Caramel Apple Pops, Laffy Taffy, Sour Punch Straws, they all have that same flavor but with their own twist. As a result I enjoy almost any flavor with green apple and if I’m ever unsure what to vape, I tend to fall back on it.

The last thing to consider is price. When it comes to ADVs, you’re going to use a lot of it. I personally vape upwards of 10mls a day. If the cost of my juice was $1 per ml, I’d be looking at $300+/month. A good ADV should definitely be affordable which is why I vaped MBV before I ever worked here. With over 100 flavors you’re sure to find an ADV that suits your needs and won’t break the bank. Whether you’re on a quest to find your first one or need to stock up on yours, today is THE day to do so. 20% off all juice means you can try all the flavors on your list and buy a couple for your friends. Both they and your wallet will thank you. Happy Shopping! Make sure to use coupon code black2015 !

    I tend to love the fruit flavors for ADVing. It is “cool” and refreshing and doesn’t seem to have the weight of dessert juices.

  • Babs says:

    And here I thought the sensory thing was just my own personal weirdness. 😀

    I’ve found my favorites tend to be of the beverage or candy variety. If I find myself seeking out a texture while I vape a flavor, it’s gone. Even some of the creamy flavors give me trouble because I’m looking for that “thickness” of the cream.

    Thank you for the tips. And thank MBV (and a couple of other venders) for having a LARGE variety of flavors to choose from. I may never find that ADV but at least I know my vaping will never be boring.

  • Travis says:

    The way I figured out I can vape rootbeer and vanilla ice cream build your own flavor, I got drunk I figured if I can vape it drunk and like it,sober will be great and I have been smoke free since July of 2015. Thanks baker you guys are the only company I order from, I also got my parents away from cigarettes and now vapeing since last August or September and I feel great with out cigarettes! By the way I drink once every few months, just so you know I’m not some drunk trying to get people drunk lol
