I am not entirely sure if a list containing two e juice flavors is enough to justify running one’s own website, but ANML Vapors does just that. Perhaps this is a promotional thing, leading the reader to other brands mixed by the same person. The culinary artist behind ANML e juices is also responsible for Philip Rocke Grand Reserve and Gemini Vapors, so the selection gets bigger if you see it that way.
Gastronomic E Liquid
ANML Vapors were devised by a gastronome. His attention to detail is “bordering on lunacy” which suggests this is OCD juice. In fact, if they were looking for a new name that is what I would call it.
Each flavor is bottled in glass with a dripper top. Images show the 50/50 mixture being used on high-end mods, so it’s still good for dripping, even if vegetable glycerin is not high.
That blend is balanced enough to suit clearomizers, not just tanks, and to perform admirably on low-tech systems. Experienced and inexperienced vapers might want to consider these accurate flavors for their next e juice shopping trip and just hope they are in stock.
ANML chose two dangerous animals to represent their e juices. A cobra and a squid do not really stand out to me as representative of the styles they make, but I am willing to interpret. A mean red cobra is featured on bottles of Carnage. Looper labels show a giant, malevolent looking white squid.
I would have to say the latter one reminds me of a game where you start with a word and change one letter then one more letter to arrive at a different word. In this case, it’s an idea, not a word. A squid’s long tentacles could loop around something, but “loop” is also suggestive of a certain breakfast cereal. With Carnage, the theme of bloodshed leads to red which takes you to the flavor.
Carnage E Liquid
Try Carnage and remember school lunches. Hardly anyone every touches red licorice in their flavor profiles. If they do, it comes out in end notes but is not dominant.
For some reason, black licorice is another story. There are loads of anise, Absinthe, and black licorice styles. Carnage (strawberry red vines) makes a wonderful, tasty change.
I can’t say the same about looped cereals or cereals in general when it comes to e juices. When I investigated this flavor, I found many other examples of crunch, fruity, colored, sweet cereals represented in vapor juice.
Still, it is not the type of flavor but the success of that flavor that matters and ANML is said to be among the most authentic. Other styles (according to the maker) lack authenticity and individuality.
Other Styles Similar to Looper
Just in case you can’t find Looper at your vape shop or online, Alice in Vapeland makes something similar with Crunkberry. At Avail, Crispy Pops emulates a cereal-type texture, but not the same flavor. The Toucan is well known by customers of Steamy Vapors.
Cyber Liquids makes Krunch Berries and Not Too Shabby has their version: Fruity Rebels. All of these companies are part of an e juice trend which is probably as popular as making custard vapes: breakfast cereal vapor juice.
The goal of each one is to resemble creamy milk and to possess the same flavor profile of a favorite brand. Some people say they can really taste that old bowl of sugary colored circles or other shapes and can remember the color their milk turned. They might even detect a certain crunch in their juice and detect creaminess in the vapor.
Will There Be More from ANML?
Various vendors for ANML and the website lead us to believe that this is a growing line of liquids; that their two styles will be joined one day (maybe soon) by another vape. I imagine it will not be a tobacco or a menthol juice because those are very out of fashion with gourmet companies in the United States, especially those blending by hand.
I would guess the next will be sweet and perhaps a dessert, but not custard. Neither of their current liquids possesses the characteristics of ripe fruit: let’s imagine they choose a non-fruity style; possibly a bread or bun with cinnamon. It’s fun to speculate.
More Gourmet Juices
If you are not having any luck finding ANML at your local brick-and-mortar store, they are sold online but not as widely as Cuttwood and Space Jam. This might leave you with a dilemma: what is another good brand to try?
I would recommend The Standard or Blueprint for similar price levels and high-end expectations. These are both American juices. Ruthless, Charlie Noble, and Space Jam are also good. If you were disappointed by all of the sugar, desserts, and breakfast cereals already noted, consider Crystal Canyon or Halo Purity. They carry many menthol and tobacco possibilities.
