Flavor is an integral component of the vaping experience – for many people, it’s the most important part. If you’ve been vaping long enough, you’ve probably reached a point where the nicotine aspect of vaping doesn’t actually cross your mind that much anymore. Maybe you never even think about cigarettes at all. At that point, you’re really vaping more for the enjoyment of the flavor than anything else.
Many people also find that flavor is a big part of what helps them switch to vaping in the first place. Discovering that you can satisfy your nicotine cravings without the constant harshness of inhaling smoke often ends up being a major factor that helps people realize how much better than smoking vaping really is.
You might be the type of person who wants to try new things constantly, or maybe you’re the type who has never bought anything else since you discovered your favorite e-liquid flavor. Either way, it’s still good to try something new occasionally because it helps to ensure that you won’t lose interest in vaping and won’t be tempted to revert to smoking. The vape juice makers of the world are always developing new flavor profiles and new techniques for creating their products, and there’s always a chance that the next bottle is going to become your new favorite.
No single article could possibly be a truly comprehensive list of all the vape flavors on the market. On this page, though, we’re going to do our best by providing a broad overview of what’s out there. These are all of the most popular e-liquid flavor profiles along with some of the individual flavors that you’ll find in them.

Tobacco is one of the most popular vape flavors, especially among those who have just switched from smoking to vaping. When you think about it, the popularity of tobacco e-liquids probably isn’t all that surprising since many people are looking for e-liquids that taste like the cigarettes they’re giving up. Vape juice uses the same food-grade flavoring agents found in many foods and beverages, and it’s important to note that no food flavoring can possibly capture the taste of real tobacco smoke. However, a good tobacco e-liquid can still present a smooth, nutty and slightly sweet flavor that satisfies you in much the same way.
Some of the most popular tobacco e-liquids capture the flavors of specific types of tobacco, such as Virginia tobacco, European tobacco and cigar tobacco. It has also become increasingly popular for vape juice makers to use tobacco in dessert flavor profiles. A savory note of tobacco makes a great addition to e-liquids with flavors like vanilla, custard and chocolate.
If you’re not a traditional cigarette smoker, you’re a menthol smoker – and in that case, you’re going to want a menthol e-liquid. The great news for menthol smokers who want to switch to vaping is that there’s no flavor difference whatsoever between the menthol used in cigarettes and the menthol used in e-liquid. In fact, if you enjoy the coolness of menthol, there are many e-liquids on the market today that are much colder than any menthol cigarette. You can also find menthol e-liquids with several different flavor profiles including plain menthol, menthol and mint and menthol and tobacco.
In recent years, menthol has actually evolved into a vape flavor element that’s completely distinct from menthol cigarettes. Companies add menthol in small amounts to other types of vape juices – fruit or candy e-liquids, for instance – to add a touch of extra coolness without covering or altering those e-liquids’ base flavors. A dash of menthol can make an e-liquid delightfully smooth and refreshing. A little menthol can also make some types of flavors – beverage or ice cream flavors, for instance – taste more realistic because those things are normally served cold.
Without a doubt, the most popular vape flavors in the world are fruit flavors. That’s partially because people love sweet things. As we mentioned at the beginning of this article, it’s always a magical moment when a new vaper discovers that it’s possible to enjoy nicotine in a completely satisfying way without the harshness of smoke. At that point, many new vapers gravitate away from cigarette-like e-liquid flavors forever and begin to move toward sweeter options. When this happens, fruit flavors are often what people choose first – and when you look at the level of variety in this vape flavor category, that’s not surprising. There’s an e-liquid available with just about every fruit flavor you could possibly name, ranging from the popular fruits that people consume every day like apple, strawberry and blueberry to more exotic offerings like mango, dragon fruit and blackcurrant.
Although single-fruit e-liquids are certainly very popular, it has become common in recent years for vape juice manufacturers to create unique flavor combinations by blending multiple fruity notes like watermelon and strawberry or pineapple, passionfruit and guava. You’ll find literally hundreds of different fruity e-liquids at any well-stocked vape shop and will probably never run out of new things to try in this flavor category.
After fruit, candy is probably the next most popular type of vape juice flavor. One of the greatest things about e-liquid is the fact that vape juice makers and candy makers use exactly the same food-grade flavoring compounds to make their products. For that reason, it’s possible to create an e-liquid that tastes almost exactly like almost any candy you can imagine. The sense of realism is only heighted by the addition of sweeteners such as sucralose. Some people actually find that vaping helps them satisfy two cravings simultaneously by supplying nicotine and reducing their desire to eat sweets.
The amount of variety that you can find in the candy vape juice flavor category today is virtually endless. Some of the popular flavor profiles include hard candy, taffy, bubble gum, cotton candy and gummy bears. Suffice it to say that no matter what your favorite candy might be, you can find an e-liquid that captures its flavor perfectly.
Although most people reach for candy when they want to snack on something sweet, candies aren’t the only options when you’re looking for something to please your sweet tooth. There are also plenty of more decadent options, and you can find e-liquid versions of those as well. The most popular dessert vape flavor is custard, which combines notes of vanilla and cream with slightly savory egg to create a flavor profile that’s smooth and perfectly appropriate for all-day vaping.
E-liquids capturing the flavors of baked goods are also very popular within the vaping community, with cupcakes and doughnuts being two well-loved examples. Notes of cooked flour and butter meld beautifully with flavors like vanilla icing. Ice cream is another popular dessert option, with menthol becoming increasingly popular as an additive that helps to recreate the real food’s coolness.
For those who love e-liquids that accurately capture the flavors of real snacks, the beverage category is another one that’s extremely popular within the vaping community. Coffee was the original beverage vape flavor, and it remains well loved today among those who appreciate an e-liquid that offers a balance of sweet and savory notes. Combined with a hint of creamy milk flavor, it’s possible to create a coffee e-liquid that tastes very much like the latte or cappuccino you might pick up on your way to work in the morning.
Although coffee was the original beverage vape juice flavor, this category has expanded rapidly over the years and now features enticing options like soda, tea, fruit punch and even some unusual choices like whiskey and eggnog. E-liquid makers have made some exciting advancements in the beverage flavor category over the years, and the selection of beverage vape flavors is likely to continue expanding rapidly in the future.
Cereal is the final category that we’re going to discuss in this list of vape flavors, and it’s an absolute must if you’re intrigued by the idea of an e-liquid that’s sweet but still offers enough complexity to keep your palate interested all day. The basis of any good cereal vape juice is a note of toasted grain – usually corn or wheat – that gives the vape juice an appealing nuttiness and a bit of a savory edge that helps to offset the sweetness.
Some of the most popular cereal vape flavors include fruity cereals and corn puffs, but you can find a vape juice capturing the flavor of just about any cereal you can imagine as long as it’s a sweet one. Along with the requisite toasted grain note, the other thing that you’re guaranteed to find in just about every cereal e-liquid is a generous dose of creamy milk flavor. Taken as a whole, the overall impression with a cereal vape juice is a bit like drinking the sweet milk at the bottom of a bowl of cereal, which is an experience that just about everyone loves.
