Juice Review: Steep by Steep / New Drips on the Block

From the Detroit Rock Candy website:

“Not your typical orange, this smooth orange lollipop flavor will keep you wanting more.”

So this is a massive homage to the pop culture that is the 80’s.  The tongue-in-cheek humor with the name is something that only an adult would understand (get it, FDA?!?!).  But I love the challenge when something is described as “not your typical _____”.  My first thought is always something similar to “Oh, is that so??”

Dum-dum/lollipop candy flavors have always been a curse to me.  I never really grew up enjoying candy flavors, so I try to lean away from candies as much as possible.  However, like I said earlier, this presented itself with a nice little challenge…

Presentation: 80’s retro in all it’s glory on the label.  Colorful splashes of tie-dye mixed with stone washing.  This presented everything graphically that a cover of Teen-Beat could possibly portray.  The block style of the lettering added to the tongue-in-cheek humor.  Far left side shows the nicotine level, while the far right side the CA Prop 65 warning, ISO-6 lab, and poison control number (huge plus!!  This needs to go on every bottle!!)

Flavor: The problem with most citrus flavors is the maximum amount of acidity that usually impacts the flavor.  Your tongue gets the sensation of citric acid and connects it somehow to orange/lemon/lime.  In this case, though, the sweetest orange pops through every single vape.  I did not get the slightest impression of heavy citric properties on this.  In fact, the flavor was just light and subtle enough on the orange flavor.  The sweetness gave it such depth that I almost felt like I just finished chewing on the last part of a lollipop.  Perfectly executed, in my opinion!!

Cloud Production: This has the thicker side of 70VG/30PG written all over it.  It functions just fine on either a RDA or a tank.  The cloud production is pretty full with no disappointment (the sign of fine craftsmanship).  With this being a sweeter juice, don’t be surprised on having to trade out the cotton on this one, depending on your vaping habits.

Nicotine Strength: 0mg, 3mg, 6mg

Bottle Size: 30ml, 120ml

Well played, Jenn.  Well played indeed!  Pick up your bottle at detroitrockcandy.com and check out the rest of the “New Drips on the Block” line, modeled after your favorite lollipop flavors!

Until next time, guys…vape on!!
