Custard E-Liquid FAQs

What Is Custard E-Liquid?

If you’ve ever eaten Crème brûlée or panna cotta, you already have a pretty good idea of what custard flavoured e-liquid tastes like. The four ingredients of a classic custard are egg yolks, sugar, cream and vanilla – and the goal of a custard e-liquid is to capture the perfect balance of those four notes. When you consider how many flavour purveyors there are around the world, though, there must be dozens of different egg, sugar, cream and vanilla flavours on the market. That creates an almost infinite set of possibilities for vape juice makers, and that’s one reason why there are so many different vanilla custard e-liquids on the market.

Why Choose Custard E-Liquid?

Most people who vape enjoy sweet e-liquid flavours. The problem with many dessert e-liquids, though, is that they aren’t really balanced. There’s nothing sour or savoury to offset the sweetness, and that can make those e-liquids a little overbearing for all-day use. Custard vape juice is different because the inclusion of an egg note balances the sweetness of the cream, sugar and vanilla flavours. The balance between sweet and savoury makes custard e-liquid the perfect choice if you’re a fan of dessert vape juice but want something that doesn’t become overly cloying during all-day use.

The other reason why every vaper should try a few custard flavoured e-liquids is because there are so many from which to choose. If you love experiencing the creativity of the world’s best vape juice makers, you’re going to love custard e-liquid because almost all of the top e-juice brands have at least one custard vape juice available. You could try dozens of the best custard e-liquids and find that no two are exactly alike.

What Are the Different Types of Custard E-Liquid?

You could spend a lifetime trying every traditional custard e-liquid on the market and probably never run out of new vape juices to sample. Custard, however, isn’t just a vape juice flavour to be used on its own. It’s also an important part of some delicious flavour blends. These are the three most common types of custard e-liquid.

  • Traditional custard e-liquids are the ones that we’ve described so far. These are the e-liquids blending the classic notes of eggs, cream, sugar and vanilla. You’ll find that a traditional custard e-liquid gives you a perfectly balanced vaping experience with a wonderfully savoury edge. If you’d like an e-liquid that tips the balance a bit in favour of the sweet or savoury side, though, you might enjoy the following two types of custard e-liquid.
  • Custard dessert e-liquids combine custard with traditional dessert flavours. The most popular flavour profile in this category is that all-time classic, the custard-filled doughnut. In this category, you can also find e-liquids capturing the flavour of custard pie along with other desserts such as lemon meringue and key lime. Just about every dessert tastes great with the addition of a little custard, so the level of variety in this category is nearly endless.
  • Custard tobacco e-liquids combine custard with tobacco flavours. If you’ve never tried a custard tobacco vape juice before, this flavour profile might sound on the surface like one that could never work. You’ll find, though, that a custard note can add a delicious sweetness to a tobacco base, creating an e-liquid that’s mostly savoury but still has a little something to please your sweet tooth.

What Strength Custard E-Liquid Do I Need?

When you shop for custard e-liquid in the UK, you’ll find two different types. Standard custard e-liquid uses freebase nicotine and is most commonly available in nicotine strengths of 3 and 6 mg/ml. You should choose freebase nicotine e-liquid if you use a vape mod or vape pen with a glass tank designed for direct-to-lung inhaling. Start with the 3 mg/ml strength and increase to the 6 mg/ml strength only if you continue to crave cigarettes regardless of how often you vape. Today’s vape tanks produce such enormous clouds that the 3 mg/ml strength is right for almost everyone.

The other type of custard e-juice that you’ll find here uses nicotine salt. Nicotine salt e-liquid is usually available in strengths of about 10 and 20 mg/ml, and it’s intended for use in lower-power vaping devices like pod systems and entry-level vape pens. If your vaping device is designed for mouth-to-lung inhaling, nicotine salt is probably the right choice for you. Start with the higher nicotine strength and reduce it if you feel like you’re getting more nicotine than you need. Nicotine salt e-liquid is usually the best choice for new vapers.
