Guilty Pleasures Organic eLiquid – A Review – This Review Is Spread Over 3 Pages
Judy Henry, owner and mixologist of Guilty Pleasures Organics, has been a full time Vaper for three years now. Knowing that electronic cigarettes are supremely superior, and safer, than tobacco cigarettes Judy was able to leave behind tobacco cigarettes and never look back when she began vaping.
Still, she wasn’t always satisfied with the quality of the eLiquids she was consuming. Judy was also disappointed and frustrated by how many small eJuice vendors there were that took on cavalier attitudes about purity, labeling, ingredients, and even shelf life for the eJuice they made and sold to the public. To this day there are still far too many eLiquid vendors doing as little as possible to make sure their product is a safe product, or as safe as possible, and this drove Judy to create her own line of eJuice, Guilty Pleasures Organics.
The five eLiquid flavors Judy has produced so far are radically different than anything we’ve seen or tasted before. As you will soon see, a whole new approach to eJuice is taking place at Guilty Pleasures Organics.
Guilty Pleasures Organics eLiquids are Propylene Glycol free, but that is the least of it. Judy’s recipes include natural and organic ingredients, including palm glycerin and natural herbs. Judy tells us that she uses only the highest quality ingredients, and has spent months and months perfecting each flavor in order to obtain the most accurate, authentic, and healthy liquids for vaping.
Guilty Pleasures Organics is made is natural herbs and other fine ingredients. All 100% natural and organic. Is this the organic eLiquid you’ve been searching for?
At first Judy made these eLiquids for herself because she wanted to vape something she could trust, something that she knew wouldn’t damage her lungs, while still achieving flavor and vapor that will have people coming back time after time wanting more.
The results are five flavors that were made without using the standard ‘best practices’ method to get them there. No PG, no artificial flavors, no sweeteners, and no fillers. Working with experts in the fields of herbal and naturopathic medicine Judy is well on the way to creating a viable new company offering not just organic eLiquids, but eLiquids that, she believes, will be better for the Vaper’s lungs then eJuice containing PG and artificial ingredients. It is a statement she has committed her company to, and we are convinced Judy will do everything she can to succeed in creating a wide variety of these unique eLiquids over the next several months.
There are plenty of people who insist Propylene Glycol isn’t harmful, and we count ourselves among them, but there are also plenty of people who, when given a choice, would rather vape eLiquid that is presumed to be safer than eLiquids made with PG (what we call the standard ‘best practices’).
Because each recipe is unique we’ve decided to forego the usual format for our review and get straight to looking at each eLiquid presented. We’ll discuss the finer points of the flavors while we describe our thoughts about them.
Over the past 2 years the crew here at Spinfuel eMagazine have reviewed and vaped hundreds of eLiquids from dozens of vendors. Guilty Pleasures Organics is, I believe, the second or maybe third “organic” vendor we have reviewed.
On the whole, we spend very little of our vaping time using organic eLiquids. The reason is simple; our reviews make up more than 90% of our vaping time. When you spend 9 hours out of 10 vaping eLiquids for the purpose of reviewing them, and the submissions we continue to get are not organic eLiquids, the opportunity to vape organically just isn’t there.
So, why is this then a ‘caveat’? While we consider ourselves true connoisseurs of eLiquids (not experts) we don’t feel like we have enough experience to inform you about every element or nuance that goes into the complicated methods of creating organic eLiquid. The most we can offer when it comes to reviewing organic eLiquids is to inform you about what we think of the flavor, the vapor output, and the throat hit. We can tell you if we enjoyed it or if we didn’t. But we cannot tell you with certainty that vaping natural herbs and palm glycerin is better for you than other eLiquids.
We can also tell you that as far as comparing the vapor output and flavor intensity against the majority of vendors that choose to use PG/VG, artificial flavors, sweeteners and other ingredients Judy Henry steers clear of, organic eJuice is subtler than the others, more natural, and definitely different.
The customer base for Guilty Pleasures Organics are fiercely loyal, and for that reason Judy’s company is continuing to grow like crazy.
Organic eLiquids, real organic eLiquids, like these flavors below, vape somewhat differently than non-organic eLiquids. There is a distinct flavor signature to these organics, the vapor production is slightly altered, and most of all, they are most definitely natural tasting.
Over these past two years we have heard from many Vapers that prefer organic eLiquids, and they rave about certain vendors that produce them. Comparing Guilty Pleasures Organics to any other vendor we’ve reviewed before, even the ‘organic flavored’ vendors we review, just cannot be done.
Guilty Pleasures is the first vendor we’ve reviewed who relies on natural herbs, palm glycerin, and naturally extracted flavors. Therefore, it is nearly impossible to gauge this brand against others, we can only tell you about them from the experience of Vapers who have spent their time with non-organic eJuice. Is it enough to recommend to you, with confidence, any sort of ‘Buying Advice’? Perhaps not…

Guilty Pleasures OrganicsThe Qualifying Vape
Judy Henry informed us that in order to quickly find the sweet spot for vaping this unique eLiquid that we should vape them with a 2.1-2.2ohm coils. And that is exactly what we did. However, once the ‘taste testing’ part of the review was completed some of us went back and vaped some of them with a standard 2.6ohm coil and found them to be every bit as good as vaping them with the 2.1ohm coils. Our time with these eLiquids showed us that they have a bit more latitude than we thought. Having said that, our advice to you would be to stay within the 2.1-2.2ohm range until you know the flavor profile and want to tweak it a little.
Using various hardware and various cartomizers, clearomizers, and tank systems, (all using 2.0-2.1ohm coils) we spent more than 72 hours with the line. Below we present our impressions of each the flavors.
The ReviewOrganic eLiquids
When you read our impressions below keep in mind that all organic eLiquids have a different flavor signature than eJuice made with PG and VG, artificial flavors, and sweeteners. Guilty Pleasures Organics flavors are subtler than non-organic eJuice, the vapor output isn’t as heavy as some others, but you cannot deny their own kind of deliciousness. If you are already a fan of organic-flavored eLiquids you’ll understand what we mean.

“Made with a proprietary blend of organic herbs, palm glycerin, distilled water, extracted organic chocolate and organic caramel flavoring. Enjoy the lively dance of these two fabulous flavors together.” – GUILTY PLEASURES ORGANICS
Julia: Judy uses zero alcohol in her recipes, so you’ll never smell or taste any kind of alcohol. What you do taste is real chocolate and real caramel.
However, if you Vape, or have tried vaping organic eLiquids before you already know that all organic eLiquids taste somewhat different than PG/VG/Artificial Flavors juices. I don’t believe that will ever neither change nor do I believe that people that love organic eJuice would ever want that to change. This flavor is delicious, and it has that organic profile you would expect. Using a new X.Jet clearomizer with a 2.2ohm coil produced the best flavor and vapor combination. – 4.5 Stars
Tom: GUILTY PLEASURES ORGANICS (Guilty Pleasures Organics – ed.) isn’t using an artificial flavoring here, the chocolate and caramel are both 100% organic flavored. This makes a big difference in the flavor notes. All organic eLiquids are identifiable by that organic note, and this was no different.
The chocolate and caramel flavors were very real, deep, and clean tasting. Organic Vapers who worship chocolate will worship at the alter of GUILTY PLEASURES ORGANICS, of that I am certain. I don’t make it a habit to vape organic juice, but if I did I would have no qualms about vaping GUILTY PLEASURES ORGANICS. 4.5 Stars
Keira: I’ve never heard of palm glycerin, but I have to tell you, as a vapor producer it isn’t bad at all. Makes me wonder why more vendors aren’t using it. You know what surprised me most about Chocolate and Caramel Tango? Without the flavor carrier, which is the job for Propylene Glycol, and with the cloud-chaser ingredient that is Vegetable Glycerin, this eLiquid still tasted and performed like a champ. I do vape organic juice more than I used to, and now I’ll enjoy it even more. 4.75 Stars
Jason: I’ve enjoyed many chocolate and caramel juices before, but this here GUILTY PLEASURES ORGANICS recipe is unlike any of them. I’m not saying that GUILTY PLEASURES ORGANICS’s is better tasting, though it does taste great, what I am saying is that as a real, natural palm glycerin and herb recipe, GUILTY PLEASURES ORGANICS has done a magnificent job producing a natural chocolate and caramel juice. People that have wanted to go all-natural will find this one indispensible in their organic lineup. 4 StarsSeductive Brew Coffee – A 2013 Spinfuel Choice Award Winner – $12.99 – 15ML $20.79 – 30ML
