Juice Review: Miss Samoa from FAQ

With the fall season just around the corner, taste buds start to gravitate in a different direction.  For some, it’s pumpkin flavored _____ (you fill in the blank) while others leap straight to Christmas tastes.

For me, though, I think about the Girl Scout cookie season starting up.  Specifically, it’s the Samoan cookies. These tasty little bits are unmistakable when you see them, and have a taste that is unforgettable.  The coconut/caramel/chocolate is unique and never duplicated.  Yet when I found out FAQ made a vape, I had to give it a shot.

“Miss Samoa is a crunchy cookie layered in caramel and chocolate, dusted with toasted coconut.”

Packaging: This unicorn bottle starts out with a purple label (very similar to the Girl Scout Cookies right off the bat).  Hints of blue adorn the background in a tie-dye fashion.  The front of the bottle shows the flavor, bottle size, and nic strength.  The left side shows a large list of warnings (and this covers just about every ground imaginable), while the right side shows ingredients, the Apollo E-Cig information, and a warning regarding people with nut allergies (again, a lot of extra detail I wasn’t expecting).

Flavor: The big thing about Samoa (or Caramel D-Lites) is that you can never separate the chocolate and caramel flavor.  This carries over to this vape, where there is a meld of chocolate and caramel in what should be an overly sweet flavor combination.  Enter the toasted coconut.  While this doesn’t provide the texture you are used to with the cookie, I can tell a little bit of the flavor on the exhale and it does an excellent job of cutting through the sweetness to give a depth of flavor.  All of this is in a tank, though.  You might miss on some of the toasted coconut flavor on a RDA, so be prepared.

Cloud Production: This 80/20 blend is pretty generous on the cloud production.  The clouds don’t tend to linger very often but there is a pretty good amount of volume each and every time.  Cotton gunking is to be expected, but not as treacherous as you would probably expect either.

Bottle Size: 30ml, 60ml, 120ml

Nicotine Strength: 0mg, 3mg, 6mg

Final Thoughts: I am a huge fan of this type of cookie, and I can’t keep my hands off of it when I see a box.  Is this flavor a spot on replica of a Samoa cookie?  Not exactly.  But it’s pretty close, and I would highly recommend giving it a shot if this is anywhere near your wheelhouse.
