WARNING: Don't Mistake Concentrated Food Flavorings For Vape Juice
September 18, 20232 min read
This might blow some of your minds to hear, but people are actually mistaking concentrated food flavorings for vape juices and subsequently vaping them only to produce some really unpleasant results.
VapeStraight does not recommend vaping food flavorings that are clearly not designed with vaporization in mind.
While it might be humorous to some, the potential health risk it poses on users remains unclear, which is why it's likely best to avoid accidentally (or intentionally for that matter) vaping food flavoring products instead of proper e-juices.
Seriousness aside, it is pretty funny.
Take this example, an Amazon user review left for a food flavoring product:
"This vape juice doesn't taste sweet, or blue raspberry."
According to The Independent, a Twitter user by the name of Rob Whisman may have been the first to report this phenomenon to the world at large after noticing a number of one-star user reviews left on generic food flavoring products being sold on Amazon. After conducting a bit of cyber-sleuthing, Whisman reportedly realized that people were actually buying food flavoring drops through websites like Amazon and vaping them. Oops!
Here's another user review left on Amazon that Vaporizer Wire pointed out in a report covering the accidental purchases of food flavorings by vapers that we're guessing is probably still going on right now:
"Lmao worst thing ever [not] vape juice and it's expired would never recommend lmao so bad even with one drop on mixes it's nasty"
The user left a one-star rating for the product, which was clearly a bottle of food flavoring, not vape juice. They titled their review "Fake out of date poop."
Can you believe that people are buying these sorts of products online and actually putting them in their vapes and vaping them before realizing they're not vape juice?
