The results are in.
This June, we asked our Facebook followers which Cartridge Refills they’d like to see as e-liquids. Like a mini-presidential election, there was a lot of to-ing and fro-ing among the frontrunners.
Tobacco Gold, Rich Tobacco and Vanilla came out top, but the vote was so close (19%, 31% and 37%) that we figured we’d make all three. We’re good like that.
The bit before that
Long before the Facebook vote, our analysts spent weeks researching the market, looking for which e-liquid flavours were hot. And of course, we asked you guys what you’d like to vape.
Here at blu we love all things electronic; we’ve made cigarettes electronic and left behind the old ways to forge ahead with the new and improved! So what else could we electrify? Just for fun of course. Well, how about ballet?
We’ve seen in the news that additional security checks have been introduced at UK airports for those travelling abroad with electrical goods. So we’ve put together this quick guide on how to pack your e-cig if you’re heading somewhere exotic this summer.
E-cigarettes have been in the news a lot recently. Given the interest, we thought we’d put together 6 facts that you might find surprising about them. Here we go!
Nothing actually burns
Your lighter and matches are a thing of the past because there’s nothing to light! E-cigarettes run on a lithium battery. When you puff on your e-cig the battery heats the liquid. You inhale the vapourised liquid. It’s vaping, not smoking.
Here at blu (UK) we love a good challenge. Saturday was no exception when some of us decided to take part in Tough Mudder Scotland 2014. Never one to turn down a sporting challenge, after some persuasion from my colleagues, I signed up. On the Saturday morning I woke up a with a slight dread in the pit of my stomach. I glanced outside and saw it was a typical Scottish day in June: a bit grey and a bit drizzly… What did I get myself in for?!
In our own humble opinion the blu e-liquids are top – what makes blu e-liquids different from a lot of other brands out there is the fact we only use the highest quality ingredients. Our nicotine is 99% pure and we only use USP grade PG (propylene glycol). Add to this that we also use many natural ingredients to create our unique flavours and this is when you start to understand that blu e-liquids offer one of the best vaping experiences around. You may see hundreds of flavours available elsewhere but, here at blu, we do not buy the same old ready-made flavours available to all other brands. We invest a great deal of time in creating our flavours from scratch; we take great pride in making ours the most unique and satisfying flavours around. We have an in-house team working hard on each flavour to create the desired taste we set out to produce, this can be anything from enhancing the tobacco flavours to making that special difference to our unique menthol. This is not an easy process but we feel that the results make it worthwhile and hope you do too. Here is a little insight into what we do:
We’ve gone mobile…automobile that is, as we introduce our blu™ bus. Isn’t she gorgeous?! All dark and mysterious. And like many beautiful things, there’s more to her than meets the eye.
She transports an intriguing cargo; a cargo that will bend the mind and the senses, transporting all who enter to a world not of their own. It’s not witchcraft, well not of the potion-making and bat boiling variety – our bus comes fully loaded with Oculus Rift, the virtual reality technology taking the techsphere by storm.
Self-proclaimed ‘edible inventor’ Charlie Harry Francis has created a ‘micro mist orb’ which is designed to give users a calorie–free sweet sensation. The super futuristic orb produces a mist which party guests can sip at using straws. The inventor claims that he can create personalised mist flavours from “pretty much everything in the world”, reports the Metro, including customers’ favourite books or even their own hair! The flavour maestro began his career working on weird and wonderful flavours of ice cream – already lurking in the home in an unnamed A-list celebrity customer is a batch of his “arousal ice cream”, coated in Viagra and flavoured with champagne. You can’t deny the creativity and this mist orb sounds like the king of all party talking points, but we think we’ll stick to our blu eCigs thanks… What flavour or ‘enhancing’ combos would you go for?
