And this month’s — vape juice / eJuice / eLiquid / nicotine liquid — champion is — once again — Jaws! Digging deeper into movie trivia we find that James Bond encountered an arch villain in the 1977 classic The Spy Who Loved Me—Jaws. The steel-toothed henchman battled Bond and only spoke one line across all of this James Bond movie appearances. Do you know the line? If you’re a Jaws fan, you should know! In Moonraker, as he makes a toast to his girlfriend, he says, “Well, here’s to us”.
And now for the top 10 flavors of April 2014 amongst our customers:The cognoscenti of San Clemente, Talega, Capo Beach, Dana Point, and San Juan Capistrano:
Last year the State of California’s Air Quality Management District (AQMD) threatened to declare beach fire pits illegal because of their health dangers. They argued that the pollution was harming the health of millions and threatened our local ecology, too. But after a strong and well-organized response by beach-loving families and activists, the AQMD backed down, leaving us all free to use our local fire pits — from Califia to Capo Beach.
This year vaping takes the stage as the new boogie man for overreaching regulators and uninformed politicians to attack. Never to miss an opportunity to tell adults how to live, politicians in major cities across the U.S. have decided to treat vaping as if it were the same as cigarettes.
Like New York City, Chicago and Los Angeles, our beach community of San Clemente took a closer look at regulating vapers. The city’s Parks and Recreation department had already made the unanimous recommendation to ban the devices citing unfounded fears that the devices promoted smoking and marijuana use. But three council members, Mayor Tim Brown, Bob Baker and Chris Hamm, however, rejected the ban.
Brown said prohibiting the devices was “a bridge too far.” Baker and Hamm both added that they had friends who use e-cigarettes and shared how the devices have helped them curtail smoking.
So on April 3, 2014 the City of San Clemente took the reasonable course of action and voted down the overreaching restrictions.
This month’s sales preferences bobbed, ebbed and flowed like the waves and tides of the Pacific — with Jaws returning to the #1 slot in terms of milliliters of eLiquid / eJuice sold in March.
Clearly Jaws delivers a great taste and big clouds that satisfies casual Protank customers and RBA/RDA aficionados, alike. So, as we have every month this year, let’s celebrate March’s winner with another quote from namesake 1975 Spielberg movie: Jaws.
If you haven’t tried it yet, stop by and give it a taste. Discover why so many keep coming back to Vape Oasis craving Jaws…and maybe log into your NetFlix and watch the classic movie “Jaws” just for the added effect. 🙂

When it comes to describing the liquid blend of propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (VG) and nicotine, no clear standard exists. In the San Clemente/Capo Beach area of Southern California, we mostly hear folks reference their PG/VG blends as juice or ejuice.
But, anyone can have their favorite term, so we decided to consult the all-knowing-Google to find out what words others around us are choosing. In comparing e-Juice, eJuice, e-Liquid, eLiquid, vape liquid and many other terms, the obvious trends were fascinating.
In January 2010, the first vaping term appeared: e-Liquid. Then in May 2011 people began dropping the hyphen in favor of the easier-to-type: eLiquid. A few months later in January 2012 a whole new word appeared and quickly gained traction — again, without the hyphen — ejuice.
A year later in January 2013 “vape juice” and “nicotine juice” arrived in the Googleverse to describe the PG/VG blends used in vaping. And clearly, vape juice quickly matched ejuice in popularity.
Which term will ultimately come out ahead? We’ll have to wait and see. How knows … maybe something new!
This newly coined term has gained tremendous traction while those mighty brands quietly languish. These trends bode well for society and smokers in particular with possibilities of providing serious societal relief from the intractable ills of combustible tobacco and their monied-interests.
