Juice Review: Holy Melon Cakes from Detroit Rock Candy


I have never had major luck when it comes to certain flavors.  I can just read a bottle and get the instinctive thought of “Nope, this won’t work for you…put the bottle down now!!”  Honeydew melon is one of those flavors.  The throat burning, tangy flavor just puts me off every single time I taste it.  I even have a pending article about another honeydew melon flavor that was so strong it almost made me sick to my stomach and go back to smoking.  So it makes sense as to why I would be so reluctant to try Holy Melon Cakes from Detroit Rock Candy.

This takes honeydew melon and pairs it with a very unusual flavor partner.  Yellow cake.

Yes, that’s right.

Yellow cake.

Presentation: The colorful bottle stands out almost immediately.  A nun with a speech bubble stating “Holy Melon Cakes” against a green and white background.  Bottle size, nic strength, and DRC website finish the front of the bottle.  Left side of the bottle gives standard warnings while the right side contains the ISO-6 icon.  The only major issue I had with this was the difficulty of reading the white text against the brighter green background towards the edge.  All in all, though, the front of the label is very eye-catching!

Flavor: Let me start off by saying that if you are also reluctant on honeydew melon, give this one a shot.  The melon kicks off the inhale and starts to build towards the tangy, offputting part until yellow cake takes over and finishes the exhale.  Want more melon?  Try lower wattage (50-60 watts).  Want more yellow cake?  Try 70 watts and above.  I ran this on two different builds and got different levels of cake and melon on both, so it’s adjustable to whatever you are running on your deck.

Cloud Production: 80VG/20PG.  Quite the impressive cloud production, given the amount of flavor that comes in the bottle.  To further reiterate the balance mentioned before, you also need to balance your coils on this.  If one coil is just slightly off, this juice takes off on the cotton coloring.  At the end of the day, though, the flavor and cloud production maintained pretty well without needing a rewick!

Nicotine Strength: 0mg, 3mg, 6mg

Bottle Size: 60ml
