If you're an avid lover of tropical fruits and especially dragonfruits, you’re in luck! Today we’ll be reviewing a very unique e-liquid called Mango Pitaya Pineapple by Pachamama. Pitaya is actually a more exotic term for dragonfruits, which fits in well with all of the exotic flavors Pachamama offers! I’ve really enjoyed the other three flavors I’ve reviewed from Pachamama and I’m looking forward to trying this tropical e-liquid! Dragonfruit is a rare flavor in e-liquids and Pachamama is known for their exquisite fruit flavor pairings, so this should be a real treat! Let’s check out the unboxing now!
My respect for Pachamama has grown with these past few e-liquid review and I’m excited to see how this one compares to Huckleberry Pear Acai, Passionfruit Raspberry Yuzu, and Fuji Apple Strawberry Nectarine. As we mentioned in our last review, Pachamama is one of several different e-liquids produced by Charlie’s Chalk Dust. You may have also seen White and Black e-liquids from Charlie’s Chalk Dust, as well as Stumps, Mr. Meringue, and Campfire eLiquids. But if your penchant is for authentic tasting fruit e-liquids, Pachamama is your go-to brand!
Mango Pitaya Pineapple is packaged in a thin paper box with a bright yellow color, an obvious nod to the pineapple in the flavor. The box shows all the same information as the label, so we’ll go focus on . The company name is boldly stamped across the top of the label, followed by the e-juice name, which is also the flavor description. The bottle size (60mL) and the nicotine content (3mg) are displayed in small letters next to the e-liquid name. Each of the three fruits are depicted directly below the e-liquid name, followed by a large banner at the bottom of the label that states “This product contains nicotine. Nicotine is an addictive chemical.”
The left side of the label shows all the various health warnings along with who should be careful when using the e-liquid. There’s also a stern warning to not allow the product to touch your skin, as well as the information for Poison control should the e-liquid be ingested. On the bottom of the actual bottle, the batch number and expiration date were stamped in bright yellow dot letters, making it a little difficult to read but not impossible.
The right side of the label showed age and sale restrictions, warnings on sale and age restrictions, and where the nicotine was derived from. The ingredient listed showed that artificial and natural flavorings were used in this e-liquid, along with a smart black ribbon that showed the e-liquids 70/30 VG/PG ratio. This was interesting because several of the other e-liquids from Pachamama were 80/20, but since 70/30 is my favorite VG/PG ratio, I was delighted!
The colorful label and the ripe depiction of fruits had me impressed with the professional design of the label. I wasn’t able to find the official price for the e-liquid on the Charlie’s Chalk Dust website, but you can purchase a bottle of Mango Pitaya Pineapple eJuice on our site for only $9.99! Now, without further ado, let’s go over the fill-up and make progress towards the actual Taste Test!
THE FILL UP
The slender 60mL bottle of Mango Pitaya Pineapple comes in a clear chubby gorilla bottle. The e-liquid’s color was a bright orange, which isn’t that common of a color when it comes to e-liquids. I attributed this to the e-liquid’s flavorings and the nicotine content. The consistency was very watery and sloshed around extremely easily from even the slightest of taps. Despite it’s thin viscosity, I was confident that, like all the other Pachamama e-liquids, this fruit flavored e-liquid wouldn’t pose a problem to my coils with either clogging them or burning the cotton within.
The bottle’s childproof cap unscrewed easily and revealed a thin fill-tip that was a perfectly even length. I had no trouble filling up my tank quickly and mess-free. I held the bottle to my nose to detect the bottle’s scent and squeezed the sides gently. I detected a sharp pungent aroma that I couldn’t quite place, but that may have been the dragonfruit. I detected undertones of tangy pineapple and a hint of mango as well, but overall, it was a smooth and thick sweetness. I was curious if this flavor would make its way to the Taste Test as well, so I prepared myself to take my first hit of this intriguing e-liquid flavor.
THE TASTE TEST
Mango Pitaya Pineapple eJuice is Pachamama’s most tropical blend of fruit flavors. Now, I’ve had dragon fruit before and I will say that the unique flavor of the actual fruit is indeed tasty, but it takes some getting used to. My first hit of this e-liquid rendition of pitaya, pineapple, and mango was a bit of a shock. I had been expecting a warm and sweet flavor similar to how many of Pachamama’s other flavors are. Mango Pitaya Pineapple was very different in terms of bold flavor. This flavor was aggressively sweet, but the fruits seemed to clash in each hit that I took. The inhale featured the soft sweetness of the mango, which was wonderfully pleasant. But the exhale was overwhelmingly full of the dragon fruit flavor, followed by a sharp tang of pineapple as well that wasn't all that great.
The mango flavor stayed on my tongue long after the clouds had left my lips, which was delicious and very similar to the actual fruit. The re-inhalation of the clouds had a very pleasant pineapple scent and I enjoyed this scent more than the actual taste of the clouds. The throat hit was strong and satisfying, requiring only a single pull to quell my nicotine cravings. But the combination of both sharply sweet dragonfruit and tangy pineapple was unexpected and unpleasant, and I felt that the flavor had a bitter aftertaste.
This was a strange flavor to review because at times I’d really like it and love how sweet it was. Other times I’d wrinkle my nose in disgust at how sharp the flavor was and look forward to emptying my tank. Despite the indecisiveness of liking the taste or not, the flavor was strong and pure the entire time I vaped it. It didn’t taste artificial or grow bland after multiple hits. I managed to make it through an entire tank, but this wasn’t something I’d want to use for an entire day.
I love mango and pineapple flavors, but the pitaya was a very strange addition to the blend. I wanted to like it, but the flavors seemed to clash too often to really use it all day. I’ve read other reviews of vapers who’ve tried it and they all love it. Perhaps my preference for the actual fruit trumps the sweetness in e-liquid form. I was very glad to be finished with this flavor, but I found myself nostalgic to try it again. It’s definitely one of the more unique flavors I’ve tried, especially since pitaya/dragon fruit isn’t that popular of a vape flavor. I congratulate Pachamama for being so innovative with their flavorings, but this one just wasn’t for me. For that reason, I have to rate it a 4 out of 10.
Now I know that vape flavors are extremely subjective to the user, which is why I tried to mention all the good things about this flavor. Unfortunately, it’s now become my least favorite e-liquid from Pachamama and I can’t see myself filling up my tank with this e-liquid unless it’s my last bottle of fruit flavored e-liquid. If you’re a huge fan of dragonfruit, then you may fall in love with this e-liquid flavor and think it’s the best vape juice you’ve ever tasted. I will say that the pineapple and mango flavor were excellent. But it was the dragonfruit that ultimately made me dislike the e-liquid flavor and I was disappointed to have to rate this flavor so poorly.
