Lots of flavor, no smell: blu ecigs

A couple weeks ago I told you about blu eCigs, a smokeless and ash-less alternative to cigarettes. I was really interested in these because both of my parents smoke, and to be honest, I cannot stand it.

The smell of cigarettes and the ashy mess just really gets to me. I had an opportunity to get a blu electronic cigarette starter pack, and after careful review, they get a thumbs up all around!

blu eCigs Review

Review by guest reviewer Jackie K. 

I have been very interested in trying electronic cigarettes for myself and my husband. We both smoke, and I’ve been wanting to try something else so I can cut back on regular cigarettes to get away from the smell, as well as the high cost of regular packs.

We have actually been trying out various brands to see which we like best, as so far blu has exceeded our expectations and seems to work better than the rest.

Other brands of electronic cigarettes do seem to look more like a real cigarette (perhaps it is just because the ones we tried for blu were black), but the blu eCigs seem to work better. The charger is great, and having a pack with a built in USB port to charge them in has been really nice. My husband also likes that the tip of these light up blue instead of red like most others. He thinks it makes it a little less obvious that you are using an electronic cigarette.

The eCigs did take a little getting used to, but they seem to work pretty well. The blu variety is a little smaller than a regular cigarette, and it is black, but I got used to that (they are also available in white).

blu eCigs flavor varieties

blu has a variety of flavors that the other brands do not seem to have available. At first I was a little worried about trying the flavored ones, but so far the ones I have tried have been okay.

   

The one I didn’t care for was Java because it tasted like a cigar to me. The regular tobacco flavor tastes a little like perfume or something, but I may just need to try it again. It takes a while to try them all because they do last quite a while. The cherry flavor was quite good, the pina colada was alright, and the menthol actually surprised me as I usually don’t like menthol, but it wasn’t bad.

Cowboys love blu eCigs too!

I haven’t gotten out and about too much with the eCigs, but the few times I have used these in front of people they said they could not smell anything, which was really nice.

My husband also likes that he can smoke these on the road. He is an over-the-road truck driver by day (cowboy by night), and he really likes that he can use them in his truck since they won’t leave everything smelling like cigarette smoke, and there are no ashes to dispose of.

Here he is trying out the blu eCigs after a day plowing snow and working outdoors.

    I have tried an electronic cigarette before and am really impressed on how much they are like regular cigarettes! I still use mine, when I run out, or am at a function with the kids where smoking is not allowed. Also great in the vehicle so I don't have to hold out until we get to our destination. Reply

    I think this is a great idea! I wish my Dad would try these out. Do they make them in Menthol? Reply

      Yep, menthol is one of the available flavors...and they actually weren't that bad coming from someone who doesn't care for menthol. :-) Reply

    I may have to get him one for Father's Day. He only smokes menthol, but I have heard they are more toxic than regular cigarettes. Reply

    As an ex smoker I wish these were around 10+ years ago! But I quit smoking and now I wish more people would use these because the smell of smoke irritates me. Reply
