We weren’t quite sure what to expect from Pimp Juice. This particular Pimp Juice is from Stella Blues Vapors, and that’s an important distinction, as we’ll explain forthwith. The official description of Pimp Juice from Stella Blues Vapors is, “The players ball cocktail, mostly consisting of hypnotic alcohol, with grape undertones.” They have Pimp Juice in the drinks section of their ejuice menu. If we had stopped there we would probably have better off. But no. We had to do a little more digging.
Sure, Stella Blues Vapors’ description told us what their Pimp Juice was supposed to taste like, but it gave us no idea as to why they called it Pimp Juice. We’ve seen other vape shops and online ejuice makers list Pimp Juice, so we checked them out. None of them gave any indication as to the origin of the name. But all of them described their Pimp Juice significantly differently than Stella Blues Vapors.
One place described their variety as “Bold menthol blend with watermelon and grape.” Another described their Pimp Juice as “A complex sweet tart candy taste.” And still another as “Sweet organic peach with coconut.” Several categorized Pimp Juice in their fruit sections. This was bordering on nomenclature chaos. A little more digging and we came across what we assume to be the origin of this flavor and, maybe, the reason for such a wide variety of flavors using the same name.
Back in 2002 Hip Hop artist Nelly released a song entitled Pimp Juice. In 2003 Nelly took that name and started an energy drink company. The original Pimp Juice was described as “A tropical berry flavor…while its 10% apple juice content adds a natural sweetness.” A Purple Label variety was later added that has a grape, prickly pear and pomegranate flavor. Pimp Juice, the energy drink, is commonly used as a mixer in alcoholic drinks.
We couldn’t locate any Pimp Juice, the energy drink, to see how close Stella Blues Vapors Pimp Juice, the ejuice, got to the real thing. And time was running out for us to get this review finished. So we had to satisfy ourselves with the official description and see how close it came to the actual flavor.
The Numbers As Tested
Nicotine Level 24 MG
PG/VG Ratio 45/55
As it turns out, the official flavor description is pretty accurate. There is definitely a grape flavor, but to us the grape is much more up front and any alcohol element is relegated to undertones. Having said that, Pimp Juice is a thoroughly enjoyable vape. The grape tastes natural and juicy, not overly sweet like grape flavored candy. And that essence of alcohol gives it a nice edge. The vapor is plentiful and the aroma is pleasant, a light grape scent. The throat hit is moderate. The refreshing nature of Pimp Juice makes it ideal for vaping after a long day, but we enjoyed it all day.
If you like grape with a little bite, then Pimp Juice is a flavor you’re sure to enjoy. Just be sure you’re getting it from Stella Blues Vapors. Anyone else’s Pimp Juice is likely to taste entirely different.
