Today I’ve got my sausage fingers on the new Vapes Bars Found Mary FM600 disposable vapes.

Found Mary disposable vape selectionI keep singing Amazing Grace for some reason!

I’m also instantly reminded of the hugely popular Lost Mary disposable vapes designed by Elf Bar.

Whereas there’s a wealth of information about that successful vape manufacturer, I’ve limited knowledge of Vapes Bars. Their products are designed here in the UK and manufactured in China.

Vapes Bars LogoI do know they’re based in London in the UK, having also released the Vapes BarsGhost 800 and Diamond line of TPD regulated disposables.

Vapes Bars pride themselves on flavours, performance and design.

On the latter. The Found Mary bears a striking similarity to the Lost Mary BM600 disposable vape, down to the size, shape and specifications.

We’re here today to find out if the flavour, vapour production and performance is just as good.

How sweet does that sound?

I would very much like to extend my thanks to Vape Club for sending these over for the purposes of review. It’s very much appreciated.

Speaking of the review, it’ll be split into two parts. I’m reviewing seven in the range today. Those remaining will be posted very shortly, so please do check back.

Please note: These are only my personal opinions. Yours may differ wildly. Use my thoughts as a rough guide as to what to expect.

Strawberry Grape

Found Mary Strawberry Grape

Vapes Bars Says:

A sweet Strawberry complemented by the dark juicy taste of Grape.

I Say:

Think Strawberry Bootlace sweets and you’re getting one half of the vape picture. The Strawberry is both intense and sweet. Nothing like the taste of biting down on the real thing.

It has more of a candy like edge to add to the appeal. It’s a likeable rendition and gets the job done as long as you’re not into flavour complexity.

The Grape runs more in the background but does add extra ‘bite’ to the exhale. If anything, it works more in unison with the Koolada, thrown in for added clout.

I’m not the biggest fan of Grape vapes – simply because I’ve yet to discover a worthy replication in vape form.

This could easily have been an over powering, highly chemical tasting affair but instead it’s sweet, uplifting and carries a moderate amount of Koolada for additional punch.

Gummy Bears

Found Mary Gummy BearsVapes Bars Says:

Calling all sweet tooths! A sweet, juicy and satisfying flavour that will surely please all those taste buds.

I Say:

The description is true to its word when it comes to sweetness levels. They’re at an all time high with Gummy Bears.

Unfortunately there’s very little in terms of a chewy sweet. The vape lacks the complexity to deal with such a texture.

I would suggest a layer of juiciness is involved and latches onto the fruits on offer.

These fruits tend to combine into one whole but Orange, Lemon and Grape are the ones most discernible to me. It’s not a bad blend for the majority of the exhale.

It’s at the vaping embers where things turn a bit funky. Or I should say as an after taste and aroma left on the palate. The fruits seem to turn stale and stilted.

So the end of the vape takes away much of the early appeal, in my opinion.

Blueberry Cranberry Cherry

Blueberry Cranberry CherryVapes Bars Says:

A sweet and delicious Blueberry with a distinct Cherry undertone, slightly sour on the exhale.

I Say:

The Cherry gives off a natural aroma from the mouthpiece, so that’s a positive sign. How does it vape?

I will be honest, this one’s not to my personal taste.

The Cherry continues about its business during the exhale, becoming more artificial as it does so. The vape is drier than I was expecting, lacking crispness and vitality. To an extent this makes a change from an overly concentrated disposable.

The Blueberry side comes through just as strongly but this is where I fall out of love with the flavour. It clashes with the red berry creating a hybrid blend, if you like.

There’s very little sweetener involved and the cooling agent just doesn’t seem to work very well with this profile.

Caribbean Crush

Found Mary Caribbean CrushVapes Bars Says:

A delicious crush, flavoured with a blend of Mango, Pineapple and Grapefruit.

I Say:

Very, very sweet tasting. I noticed that from the very first inhale. It could be a little too intense for some.

Those fruits, however, aren’t bad tasting at all. I’m almost convinced of the presence of Coconut even though not mentioned in the flavour description.

This truly is a fruity fusion because Mango, Pineapple and Grapefruit are all discernible. Mango appears earlier on and is followed up by a glorious tasting Grapefruit.

It’s all stitched together by a peppering of Pineapple through the heart of the vape.

The Koolada also kicks in on the inhale, soothing the throat and amplifying that fantastic flavour on the exhale.

Other than an elevated level of sweetness there’s not much to find fault with.

Blackcurrant Mango

Blackcurrant MangoVapes Bars Says:

A delicious combination of tart Blackcurrant and sweet Mango with an extra cold Menthol shot.

I Say:

I get a pleasant aroma of Mango when nose meets mouthpiece. It smells authentic.

In terms of translating to the vape it’s equally as good. Here, the Mango is juicy and ripe. There’s nothing to suggest any of the usual chemical, synthetic fodder often found with disposable vapes.

It’s very appealing and it’s very likeable.

However. I’m not exactly sure where to place Blackcurrant in the scheme of things.

There’s every possibility it’s engulfed by a wave of Menthol because it doesn’t project itself anywhere near the level I’d hoped for. That’s going to impact on the score, which is a bit of a shame.

The sweetness levels are on point, probably another reason why the Mango works so well.

Blue Razz Lemon

Found Mary Blue Razz LemonVapes Bars Says:

A mouth-watering explosion of ultra-fresh and sweet Blue Raspberries mixed with zesty Lemons.

I Say:

This one is a bit ‘sulphuric’ tasting for my liking. There’s more than enough zesty citrus from the Lemon though. So much so that it almost, but not quite, engulfs the Raspberry content.

The problem I have with this flavour profile is that when the Raspberry takes a grip (around mid-way through the exhale) that fresh Lemon takes on an altogether altered, muddied taste.

I don’t think they work that well together, at least not in this case. I can tell that there’s been painstaking efforts made to get the two to gel but the end product isn’t reflecting what I was expecting.

In this instance the Koolada merely serves to amplify my thoughts.

In a nutshell I’m not the biggest fan of how Blue Razz Lemon has been blended.

Red Apple Ice

Found Mary Red Apple IceVapes Bars Says:

Sweet ripe Red Apples, layered with a hint of ice to create a fresh fruit taste with every puff.

I Say:

A nice cool vape. Koolada caresses the back of the throat during the inhale and sets things up for the flavour explosion ahead.

The sweetness of the Apples pushes against that cooling blast on the way in. The fruit then develops during exhale, leaving behind a bitter sweetness on the taste buds.

I would say the intensity of said Apples is a little too much for my palate but to a large extent, authenticity lies beneath.

Red Apple Ice is a refreshing, appealing vape and even includes the juicier qualities of a Red apple.

Fresh Mint

Found Mary FM600 Fresh Mint

Vapes Bars Says:

A cool, breezy vape that’s smooth on the exhale leaving you with a fresh spearmint taste.

I Say:

Should’ve been renamed Sweet Mint.

For this reason it doesn’t quite carry the icy cold clout I was expecting. To an extent it’s nullified by the insane level of sweetener.

The Koolada is in evidence and promises much during inhale but soon takes a back seat to a sweet, almost wet taste.

We’re experiencing Spearmint, that’s for sure and omnipresent throughout the vape as I would expect. Yet it lacks clarity and sparkle and does feel a bit on the flat side.

No amount of Koolada can compensate for that so Fresh Mint isn’t quite the palate resetting vape it could and should have been.

For a simple, single flavour profile Fresh Mint disappoints me. I was expecting a stronger blast of ice (and I don’t often say that!), less sweetness and a Spearmint with more bite and clarity.

Blueberry Pomegranate

Found Mary FM600 Blueberry PomegranateVapes Bars Says:

A delicious juicy blueberry paired with exotic pomegranate for a truly fruity treat. Slightly tart, utterly delightful.

I Say:

I get a very pleasant aroma from the mouthpiece when opening Blueberry Pomegranate.

The vape begin very promisingly on the inhale with equal measures of sweetness of Koolada. Things make a turn for the worse on the way out, however.

The Blueberry doesn’t appear to be the culprit because it drifts through cleanly and smoothly during exhale. I’m reminded of the kind often used with Bubble gum vapes. It has that candy like, pleasant tasting quality.

It’s towards the end of the exhale that it’s betrayed and I’m not quite certain if that’s being caused by the presence of the Pomegranate.

There’s not much to the tart like properties of Pomegranate. Again, that could be in the way sweetness seems to amplify late doors of the vape.

A very strange flavour. One that starts very nicely but then mutates into a repulsive and cringeworthy end product.

A real Jekyll and Hide vape.

Cola Ice

Found Mary FM600 Cola IceVapes Bars Says:

A refreshing fizzy sweet cola served with ice offering a unique flavour taste on exhale.

I Say:

Very nice!

Cola Ice has all the taste properties I would be expecting from this popular drinks based profile.

The most important quality is the fizziness. It’s there in spades – that’s quite a relief. I usually drop points if mentioned in the flavour description but not included.

It works to great effect running alongside the icy cold blast first picked up on during inhale.

Is it heavy on the sweetness? Mmm. I think so but not to the point of turning a beverage vape into a syrupy mess.

Of course the classic taste of Cola resonates throughout and pulls everything together. It’s a consistent, smooth vape and the flavour holds out effectively with every toot.

A highly refreshing vape for any month of the year.

Mr Blue

Found Mary FM600 Mr BlueVapes Bars Says:

A vibrant, crisp, and invigorating flavour packed with the coolest possible freshness.

I Say:

There’s not a lot to go on based on that flavour description, is there?

But flavour there certainly is.

I have to say that Mr Blue sits somewhere at the top of what I’d consider originality. That’s because I’ve yet to discover a disposable vape flavour anything like it.

The balance and ratio between taste, sweetness and Koolada is on point. Again, that’s not something I write on a regular basis when it comes to disposables.

I pick out very subtle hints of Blueberry Bubble gum with faint traces of mint or more specifically, Spearmint. Everything seems to harmonize and blend from start to finish.

Mr Blue doesn’t get bogged down by sweetness and this allows the flavour subtleties to develop on the exhale.

A very smooth and tasty vape.

Passion Kiwi Guava

Found Mary FM600 Passion Kiwi Guava

Vapes Bars Says:

Passion Kiwi Guava is a super delightful tropical blend of fruits, with a cool and icy finish on the exhale.

I Say:

The aroma from the mouthpiece is somewhat of a strange one. Faint traces of Orange intertwined with mint!

Maybe I’m better off vaping instead of inhaling the smell..

And the vape is indeed completely different. Initial thoughts lean towards a tropically inspired mix, that’s for sure.

Where Pineapple and Guava are centre stage. It’s a rather pleasant blending of the fruits too and coupled with the sweeter elements, create a refreshing and juicy taste.

The muskiness of the Passion Fruit is omni present, punching through the heart of the vape.

There’s an abundance of flavour on offer and it’s quite a rich tasting vape. One where I could easily be confusing Pineapple with Kiwi. The flavours are often described as being similar.

Expect an icy cold blast of Koolada to help things on their way.

Verry Berry Cranberry

Found Mary FM600 Verry Berry CranberryVapes Bars Says:

A punch of sweet blackberries and blueberries combined with a hint of slightly tart cranberries.

I Say:

Blimey! I was expecting something completely different! Something much more synthetic and acrid tasting than this.

Keeping in mind that taste is subjective, I’m convinced there’s a hint or two of Cherry thrown in here. I notice that very early on in the vape.

Unfortunately the flavour mutates into something less appealing as the exhale develops.

I’m thinking it’s caused by the blending of the Blueberry and Blackberry, neither of which are over concentrated in terms of flavour output.

Those two aren’t working for me. There’s no flavour separation and it almost feels as though they cancel each other out.

The resulting end product isn’t one I’d write home about. It’s just not a very pleasant taste despite the lack of chemical intensity.

Triple Mango

Found Mary FM600 Triple MangoVapes Bars Says:

A blast of delicious mango flavour that delivers a satisfying tropical taste on exhale.

I Say:

Very pleasant, if a little over concentrated on the exhale.

Let’s put that down to being Triple Mango. Not single, not dual. It’s not far off natural flavour qualities, either.

There doesn’t appear to be much in terms of chemical or synthetic persuasion with Triple Mango, which is a blessed relief if I’m being honest.

Mango often emits are rather pungent, foul aroma but thankfully that’s not the case here.

Instead it carries a pleasant, tropical vibe where much of the sweetness is replaced with a juicier quality overall.

Again, Koolada plays a significant role and it will catch the back of the throat, especially if chain vaping. But it also does much to lift the buoyant nature of Triple Mango.

It’s a flavour well suited to the Summer months, in my opinion.

Battery Performance and Number of Puffs

With a battery capacity of 500mAH the Vapes Bars Found Mary disposables don’t seem to know when to give up!

Having tested a myriad of them out, they’re all lasting for anything up to 12 hours.

Insane, I know. I can’t figure it out, either.

So you can easily expect 600 puffs from these disposables. I could put a figure on it but that would sound even more insane.

However, there were also times when auto draw would simply go to sleep. This tended to be if the disposable were left for short periods of time between vaping. But that still doesn’t justify the puff count.

On average and per disposable this would happen maybe seven or eight times throughout its life span.

And incredible as it sounds flavour quality was consistent throughout, only showing signs of degradation towards the end of the battery’s life cycle.

Final Review Verdict

Overall flavour quality is something of a mixed bag. Occasionally intense and concentrated, heavy on the sweetener and the fruits are generally synthetic or artificial tasting.

On a few occasions where mixing is involved some flavours are either muted or simply don’t work where others are included. The one exception to that rule is Caribbean Crush.

However, the Koolada isn’t throat cuttingly strong and does add a soothing chill during exhale.

Vapour production is great. For a MTL vape it produces cloudage that’s highly satisfying.

The mouth to lung restriction is also good but there were times when auto draw would fail, for no apparent reason.

vapes-bars-found-mary-fm600-disposable-vapes-reviewI found(!) the Found Mary disposables to be something of a mixed bag. That's partially down to simply not liking some (personal preference) but also the way in which some of the flavours have been mixed. As a MTL vape for the new or casual vaper, the Vapes Bars Found Mary will deliver a solid and reliable performance. The flavour remains consistent throughout the lifespan of the disposable and vapour production is suitably stealthy. As to that insane, head scratching battery performance? Answers on a post card.

1 COMMENT

  1. Tried a couple of these Found Mary vapes after my local store stopped selling Lost Mary vapes. The flavour all sound great, but the two flavours I went for were Blackcurrant & Mango, and Pink Orange Fizz. They both started out tasting really great, but after a day of light use, both flavours started tasting burnt. I’ve not taken long puffs on either, and they’ve barely been used, but the burnt taste is kind of off putting. I’ll try a couple more flavours, but overall, I think I prefer Lost Mary vapes rather than the Found Mary ones.
