In for review are five dessert inspired e-liquid flavours from the Pacha Mama range.
This is a range created by California based manufacturer Charlie’s Chalk Dust.
Established in 2014, they’ve been on a continuous mission to create flavours to entice smokers away from the dreaded cigs.
Over the years Charlie’s Chalk Dust have chalked up a number of flavour ranges and there’s something to suit various types of vaper. Whether sub ohm tanks or starter kits, they’ve got your back with a range of short fills or 10ml bottles in either 10mg or 20mg salt nicotine strengths.
The Pacha Mama range is no exception and there are many fruity exotic flavours to choose from. Most are multi layered and carefully blended to give them their own unique quality.
The five I’ve been given to review mark a slight change of approach because they’re all dessert inspired creations. They might even be deemed less complex, but we’ll see since I’m partial to a dessert based vape or three myself!
In case you were wondering Pacha Mama is a Greek Goddess, revered by the indigenous people of the Andes. The e-juice range is inspired by the natural beauty of our home planet and all the fresh flavours it has to offer.
..Now you know!
What Can We Expect From The Pacha Mama E-Liquid Range?
Currently the range is only available in a 70VG/30PG juice ratio. So this makes them more suitable to sub ohm tanks and some higher powered Pod Mods.
They come in a 60ml short fill bottle with 50ml of e-liquid included. Add a 70VG/30PG 18mg nic shot of your choice to bump the strength up from 0mg to 3mg while retaining the original ratio.
After doing a little scouting I noticed the range is also available in 120ml bottles with space to add two nicotine shots. So if these sound appealing you’ll no doubt get more vape for your buck.
Label Design and Packaging
Unlike others in the Pacha Mama range, these bottles don’t come in fancy cartons. In fact they’ve been stripped down to the bare basics in terms of label design.
However, the labelling we do get is pretty cool for its lack of complexity. Each one has a coloured background to denote the flavour included and the art work while minimalistic, is still very effectively illustrated.
It works on all the right levels, proving that less can often be more. They carry a sense of responsibility and maturity that isn’t always seen with label artwork.
Full kudos to Charlie’s Chalk Dust.

I’m going to be using the Vaporesso Forz TX80 Mod coupled with the Forz Tank 25 for the purposes of review. The GTR 0.4ohm mesh coil was installed and cranked to 52W or 3.7V volts to bring out the warmness required from the range.
I used my usual restrictive direct lung style of vaping. Airflow was two thirds closed to squeeze out as many flavour nuances as possible.
Big shout out to Vape Club for sending these over. As always, it’s very much appreciated.
Pacha Mama Apple Cinnamilk
An indulgent dessert blend fusing a mellow Vanilla Milk flavour with crisp Apple and spicy Cinnamon notes.
The spiciness of the Cinnamon causes slight throat scratching during the initial inhale but its presence is certainly felt amidst the overall flavour experience. The sweet Apple content is expertly blended in throughout exhale and has all the hall marks of a ripe Granny Smiths variety.
The milky sub notes of the vape do help to remove some of the harshness of the Cinnamon and leave a pleasant coating on the lips. Overall I’d have to say I’m reminded more of a Cinnamon Apple pie e-liquid flavour but you won’t find me complaining too much about that.
Those milky, dairy notes could do with being a bit more pronounced to separate Apple Cinnamilk from a raft of similar tasting profiles. That’s really the only weakness to the creation.
Be prepared for the spiciness of the Cinnamon to invade the palate post vape.
Pacha Mama – Blueberry Crumble
Replicating the taste of the popular dessert by combining sweet yet tart Blueberries with warm, crumbly Pastry notes.
This is quite subtle with its approach to the Blueberry. It’s loaded more with a sourness to the taste than the actual fruit itself. However, it’s not an artificial, synthetic flavour and does border on natural tasting as opposed to generic.
I think part of the reason it runs in the background is because it’s fusing with a rather dominant buttery texture. It’s a shame there’s not enough depth with the bakery sub notes and Blueberry Crumble hardly screams of pastry base.
During inhale there’s a slight acidic and mildly sweet taste which makes way for smooth dairy like notes on the way out. The mild tasting Blueberry joins in at the point of exhale with enough tartness to keep thing relatively interesting.
However, a somewhat unpleasant copper like taste is generated post vape which gets left on the tongue. That kind of tarnished what was otherwise a half decent vape.
If you prefer a milder tasting fruit vape, Blueberry Crumble may well be up your street. I just thought there was a bit too much sourness and acidity and not really enough of what’s mentioned in the flavour description.
Pacha Mama – Cookie Butter
Recreating the rich, sugary taste of homemade cookies for a sweet and decadent dessert vape.
I’m very much reminded of a Macaron cookie when I vape Cookie Butter. The inhale is very smooth and sugar coated while during the exhale there’s a richness and texture which retains quite a few biscuit like back notes.
The level of sweetness is pitch perfect and 52W really brings out the toasty, home cooked appeal of the flavour.
Cookie Butter is one of those vapes that holds flavour throughout, lingering with some consistency on the palate after the exhale. That’s something I find very appealing with any dessert based profile.
There’s also a smattering of nutty notes thrown in and they combine well with the Butter and Oats main theme. Charlie’s Chalk Dust have certainly provided enough bakery content while not overloading the cookie with sweetener.
So some very careful blending has been applied to make Cookie Butter something of a special vaping experience.
Pacha Mama – Hazelnut Creme
A blend that combines the nutty flavour of Hazelnut with smooth, creamy notes for a rich and indulgent vape.
There’s more sweetness to this vape than I was anticipating but that’s no bad thing. It adds dimension to the main ingredient which is of course, Hazelnut.
It has a rich, savoury taste that combines well with a creamy Marshmallow that adds texture to the exhale. Much of the savoury elements of the nut are reserved for the inhale and these make way for a buttery, creamy experience on the way out.
The exhale is infused with a sugary sweetness with just the merest hint of Chocolate for good measure. Of course the mainstay are the dominant nutty notes which have a warm, roasted appeal.
Hazelnut Creme isn’t one to remain on the palate after the vape so it’s best to take longer inhales to really savour what’s on offer here.
Charlie’s Chalk Dust have shown once again the merits of careful blending and there’s very little to fault. If I were to be picky, some may find the savoury notes a little intense but other than that?
A fantastic vape!
Pacha Mama – Strawberry Cheesecake
Combines a juicy, tasty Strawberry flavour with Cream and a buttery biscuit base note.
I’m picking out a very fresh and ripe tasting Strawberry and it’s actually knocked me for six!
I think it’s as close to the fruit as I’ve experienced in a very long time. It simply oozes originality and authenticity – just like biting into the real thing. A fantastic taste!
Coupled with this there’s a very nice whipped cream topping fused with a few milky back notes. There doesn’t appear to be any artificial sweetener applied and this helps keep the Strawberry fresh and natural tasting.
However it does come with a caveat. I don’t really notice much in the way of a cake or biscuit like base. To me, it’s less about the shortcake and more in line with a bowl of Strawberries and cream. Yet the blending is absolutely spot on.
It’s a shame Strawberry Shortcake lacks a buttery, crispy crust. Because of this it drops points based on the flavour description.
If this had been named Strawberries and cream it would’ve scored a straight ten.
Final Review Verdict
Every flavour in the range delivered a consistent, clean and tasty vape. The inhale was generally a very smooth experience where most of the sweet, tart, savoury and sour notes originated.
The exhale produced some very effective flavour blending between the key ingredients. Because Charlie’s Chalk Dust have avoided multi layering and complexity, the range is instantly accessible to anyone new to the desserts category.
There’s also oodles of vapour production to satiate the most ardent of sub ohm vapers.
So to conclude. For the best part, you’re getting exactly what you’ve asked for. Another five worthy members to the Pacha Mama line up.
