Since its inception in 2003 in China, e-cigarettes have exploded in popularity all over the world, finding fans mainly in cigarette smokers looking to beat their deadly habit.
While we can only imagine the pain of having a limited selection of e-cigarettes and vape juice flavors to choose from in the early years, these days, vapers today are lucky to have hundreds of e-cigarette brands to choose and thousands more vape juice flavors to sample from.
Though e-cigarettes were first popularised in China, China’s own vape juices have often missed the mark in terms of taste and flavor. Vapers everywhere look instead to US brand vape juices for juice with the quality they can depend on. With great flavor combinations, great packaging and marketing, e-liquid labeling standards and a large domestic market of vapers, it is no surprise that the US brewers are leading the way in e-liquids.
As one of the pioneers of premium quality and great tasting vape juice with a large variety of flavors, brewers in the US have set the standards for what to expect from quality juices. Juices which don’t meet the minimum standards set by the top two brewers in the world get thrown in the bin after just one try.
The only problem with US juices though, is that they can be pricey and if you’ve only vaped US juices, you might start wondering what other flavors are out there in the world.
The good news is that there are a few other countries that offer juices with quality on par with US juices, and usually at cheaper prices. What’s even better is that when you step outside of the usual US juices, you’ll often find yourself surrounded by new, exotic flavors that are guaranteed to make you go Wow.
That’s because brewers usually draw inspiration for their juice flavors from the local food and tastes they are used to, often creating hybrids of trendy US juice flavors and local favorites. Even the country’s weather may play a part in how their juices are mixed!
Of the vape juices brewed around the world, Malaysian vape juices top the charts when it comes to quality and taste. Most vapers who have tried Malaysian vape juices become regular vapers of it, often adding them to their collection of US juices.
Right after the US, Malaysia has one of the most active vaping communities in the world. Thanks to their tropical location, Malaysian vape juice brands are best known for their fruity flavors. Unlike fruity flavors from US brands which can often taste artificial, Malaysian fruity juices have a more authentic taste which leave people who have tried them longing for more.
Malaysian juices tend to be sweeter than US juices, an extension of how Malaysians enjoy their food and desserts. They are also often colder, owing to the hot and humid weather in Malaysia, making vaping cold juices a quick escape from the heat.
If you’re a lover of US juices but want to explore great new flavors from another country, you won’t regret trying Malaysian e-liquids. Let’s get right into it!
As pioneers of great quality juices, most vapers are probably already familiar with US juices. The US has the largest community of active vapers and US vape juices make up the biggest collection of juice brands in the world.
It’s likely that the first juice you tried was a US juice.
Thanks to its diverse mix of cultures, US vape juices cover a broad range of American favorite flavors, with their tobacco, creamy, pastry, candy and dessert flavors getting the most attention. If you’re looking for safe juices to try, you’re likely not going to regret buying a US brand juice.
