The Novavapes Juice Packs are a convenient way to stock up on your e-liquid and given you’re buying in bulk, should be easier on your wallet too.
The company is based in Hartlepool UK and has been around since 2015 and was founded by Robert Coates – a guy passionate about vaping.
I can attest to that after meeting him and the rest of his team at last years Vaper Expo.
As you can see, as well as being extremely proud of the company’s growth, they’re all wannabe Instagram models if you ask me lol – some might say poseurs…I won’t 😉
What Can We Expect From the NovaVapes Juice Packs?
In a nutshell – we can expect to save money!
The Juice Packs are broken down to include 50ml shortfills with either a choice from any of the ranges OR the chance to mix your own adding up to 7 flavours of your choosing – and all of the packs include the corresponding number of 10ml nic shots.
All of the e-liquids are a 70/30 ratio VG and PG.

OK, I was sent a very generous three Juice Packs from the Summer – ICE and Create Your Own range, direct from NovaVapes – thank you – and of course, my thoughts and opinions are not swayed by freebies.
Note: I did add a nic shot to one of the bottles and vaped immediately…I personally think you might want to let it steep a while as the flavour was a little harsh…but like juice reviews, taste is subjective.
OK let’s get stuck in and given there’s ten flavours to vape through – this is gonna be a long one so pull up your chair 😉
Summer Special – 3 Flavours – 3 Nic Shots
Pack contains x3 flavours from the Summer Range and the nic shots.
Sweet and zesty lemonade smashed with blackcurrants with hints of lime.
This was the first flavour I tasted and made the mistake of adding the nic shot – shaking and vaping immediately [see above].
Until I’d left this one to steep for a few days, the fruity fresh taste I was expecting was overpowered by the taste from the nic shot – yuk!
However, after 3 days it calmed down considerably and by day 5 it was very vapeable indeed.
The blackcurrant is to the fore, with the slightest hint of lime, whilst the lemonade lacks a bit of a punchy fizz and there’s no cooling effect.
Not bad and delivered amazing clouds.
Refreshing pear, with hints of sweet honeydew, sharp juicy pineapple, enriched with a peppermint finish.
I was a tad concerned this one was going to be a little on the harsh side of menthol – but I needn’t have worried.
The clue is in the delicious smell, a tantalizing waft of mixed fruits hits your nostrils with the merest hint of mintiness.
Refreshing and vibrant the fruit cocktail explodes on the tongue whilst the exhale adds a layer of gentle cooling.
Definitely one for the summer and extremely refreshing.
Mango Lychee ICE
A juicy mix of sweet ripe mangoes blended with exotic lychee, Enhanced with ICE.
On opening the bottle you get smashed in the face by a gorgeous smell of ripe mangoes – really did get my mouth-watering.
The slightly sharp mango is the predominant note coming through on the inhale with that sweet juicy lychee just underneath.
The exhale delivers a gentle icy cooling effect that is very tasty indeed.
I have to say the ice is perfectly balanced complimenting rather than over-powering the refreshing fruit fusion.
ICE Pack – 4 Flavours – 4 Nic Shots
The pack contains x4 60ml short-fills from the ICE range and x4 nic shots
Blackcurrant Lemonade ICE
Sweet and zesty lemonade smashed with blackcurrants with hints of lime. Enhanced with ICE!
Yeah, I prefer this one to the ice-free flavour.
You’re getting that same fruity goodness from the blackcurrant whilst the ice really does enhance the lemonade.
Blue Raspberry ICE
Slushed blue and sweet raspberry syrup with candied and sour notes. Enhanced with ICE.
I only recently mentioned not finding a blue slush juice I liked – is this the one I’ve been looking for?
Sure the ice once again lifts the taste to a new level leaving a pleasing tingle to your tastebuds.
But for me, it’s a little on the sweet side with the sour notes not quite popping.
Still a very cool and refreshing vape if you have a sweeter tooth than me.
A distinctive blend of fresh strawberry and rich pineapple with tangy orange notes. Enhanced with ICE.
If you liked those rocket iced lollies as a kid – or adult – then you’re gonna love this!
Whilst the freshness of the strawberry is a little on the ripened sweet side, that’s compensated by the delicious pineapple.
That, along with the zingy orange, brings in a lovely just this side of tart citrus goodness that takes the edge off the almost too sweet strawberry.
Trust me when the ice washes in on the exhale this is one seriously moreish vape.
Rainbow Candy ICE
Colourful candy flavour blended from sweet apple, orange, pineapple and raspberry. Enhanced with ICE!
We’re onto sweeter vapes with this one – I guess the clue is in the name lol.
I’m not a great fan of candy vapes, however, this one is just a smidgen short of being too sweet.
I’m not able to split the flavours – despite drinking a ton of water.
Instead, you get a pleasant mishmash of candy with a gentle calming effect from the ice.
Not one for me but again those of you with a sweet tooth will bloody love it.
Create Your Own Juice Pack – Choose Your Amount!
I received a packet of x3 flavours with the matching nic shots. However, on the website, I can only see the options of x5 or x10…I guess I’m special 😉
Here are the three flavours I received:
Bakewell Tart – Rose and Ivy Range
Sweet almond, marzipan and creamy icing with puff pastry notes, coming together to recreate a classic British dessert.
A Bakewell Tart is indeed a classic British dessert and one of my absolute favourites.
I had the pleasure of testing this one at last year’s Vaper Expo and bloody loved it – even dipping my hand in my pocket and buying a bottle – a very rare event lol.
Not sure if it was vaper expo tongue, but I’m not getting enough marzipan and particularly the almond notes off this bottle.
It’s still a delicious vape with sweet jam wonderfully calmed by the pastry. Regarding the pastry, I do have to say my old nan would turn in her grave using puff rather than shortcrust ha!
Still a wonderful vape and ideal with a cup of tea or coffee.
Cornflake Crunch – Rose and Ivy Range
Syrup coated cornflake cereal coupled with sweet jam on a flavourful pastry base.
Cornflake tarts are another blast from the past for me and a ‘pudding’ made when the cupboard was bare before my dad got paid lol.
The smell from this one is sweet unctuous thick gooey treacle and that’s what you get on the inhale.
Just before you think it’s too rich, in comes that crispy pastry base taking the edge off the sweetness.
There’s a bit of magical mixing going on in the exhale because that jam threatens to overpower before once again the pastry base calms everything down.
Very rich – very tasty – and one to savour with a cuppa.
Mystic Mint Ice-Cream – Rose and Ivy Range
Nova Vapes Says:
Smooth and creamy vanilla ice-cream, with chocolate chips and a touch of sweet mint.
I’m a bit of a Jabba when it comes to ice-cream and mint choc chip is one of my favourites.
Whipping the top off had me immediately thinking Murray Mints – the ones you suck and don’t hurry!
Could be my brain and taste buds playing tricks but that’s the flavour I got!
A gentle creamy mintiness with the merest and I mean the merest hint of choc chip in the way distant background.
I was hoping for even the slightest coolada effect, however, that’s lacking and they may have missed a trick.
If you like vanilla based custard e-liquids this is one you will bloody devour!
Final Review Verdict
I’ve been spoiled lately with a lot of superb e-liquids to review [and I still have more to come lol].
The flavours in the Juice Packs from NovaVapes are right up there as among the better ones I’ve reviewed and tasted.
The vapour off all of them is incredible and hands down better than many other 70/30 PG/VG juices I’ve tried – if chucking clouds is your thing!
Whilst a couple are a bit too sweet and rich for my less than sweet tooth – the ICE range in particular is extremely refreshing and definitely an all day vape without that cooling effect overpowering everything.
I’m a fussy bugger when it comes to e-liquids but have no hesitation in telling you to fill your boots with NovaVapee e-liquid – great mixing – superb flavour and with the Juice Packs you’ll save a few quid too.
