That gooey goodness yo! – Parkes Vapes

Gooey butter cake is a type of cake traditionally made in the American Midwest city of St. Louis. Gooey butter cake is a flat and dense cake made with wheat cake flour, butter, sugar, and eggs, typically near an inch tall, and dusted with powdered sugar. While sweet and rich, it is somewhat firm, and is able to be cut into pieces similarly to a brownie. Gooey butter cake is generally served as a type of coffee cake and not as a formal dessert cake. There are two distinct variants of the gooey butter: a bakers’ gooey butter and a cream cheese and commercial yellow cake mix variant. It is believed to have originated in the 1930s.

So after a few months vaping we have collected quite a few e-juices and there all stashed in a vape tray in our kitchen cupboard, some great, some ok, and some damn right nasty. But I decided to have a scour through and rediscovered Parkes Vaping Gooey Goodness Cake.

After a brief 2 months of steeping I stuck it in my protank and fired it up and damn diggidy this was goood. Not what I remembered from the first time trying, it was 10x better so it really shows that steeping is extremely important when it comes to ejuice. Now I haven’t ever tried a real life gooey cake so I can’t compare to the real thing. The juice has a buttery creamy taste to it, as if straight out of the oven this juice is delicious leaving a lovely bakery smell behind me. It’s sweet but not too sweet, I really hate juices that are too sweet that it overpowers the rest of the flavours but this one is so smooth and the sweetness blends right in, It is probably the best juice I have tried from Parkes Vaping so far.

Parkes Vaping customer service

Just one thing I would like to add is that on my previous batch from Parkes the juice was incredibly perfume scented and tasted so, I decided to let them steep for 2 months but nothing changed so I came to the conclusion it was a bad batch for what ever reason I was told it may have been the summer heat in transit that caused this. I contacted Mary at Parkes and she with no fuss gave me store credit for a new order which was a great plus to there customer service.

Persephone’s Chi – Ejuice review

Instagram is my hunting place, the tool I use to seek my juice to feed my crave and scratch that itch. I noticed a vendor that kept popping up every where I look… Zenvr.

Zenvr are a San Diego based company with a fantastic reputation, although they don’t have an online shop and don’t advertise to ship outside the US I managed to get my hands on some of there juice and boy I’m glad I did. I received 3 eJuices from them and the first thing I did was crack these bad boys open and take a wiff, damn these smell good, just like cheesecake an absolute delight!

Persephone’s Chi 6mg 30ml

Juice Rating 9/10

This juice is described as a Lemon Cheesecake with a undertone of strawberry

In Greek mythology, Persephone (/pərˈsɛfəniː/, per-seh-fə-nee; Greek: Περσεφόνη), also called Kore (/ˈkɔəriː/; “the maiden”),[1] is the daughter of Zeus and the harvest-goddess Demeter, and queen of the underworld. Homer describes her as the formidable, venerable majestic queen of the underworld, who carries into effect the curses of men upon the souls of the dead.

Now by far out of the three juices Persephone’s chi is my favourite, the smell is fantastic, the clouds are great, the throat hit for me was good but a little stronger then MrGoodVapes 6mg hits but that’s not a bad thing. My first impressions were good but for me the most prominent taste was crust on the intake and lemon on the exhale although I’m sad to say I don’t pick up strawberry, there is something there I just don’t know what.

The good news is I’m a crust lover and I would personally buy this if it was crust alone, it’s a cracking little juice and possibly the best cheesecake juice I have tried up-to date.
