Today we are reviewing “VIII” – a premium e-liquid that is produced by California-based manufacturer, C.R.E.A.M At present, VIII is the only flavour that they have available – and boy does it seem to be popular.

C.R.E.A.M boast a symbol of quality on their website, highlighting that their long steeping times and use of the finest ingredients have resulted in this e-liquid being of the most premium standard. Certainly, the strawberry and cream-based market is huge – one needs to stand out in some way in order to tap into this customer base effectively.

Where C.R.E.A.M immediately do stand out is in their packaging – there is something extremely classy about this labelling, with the manufacturer’s name boldly emblazoned across the front of the bottle. The product’s appearance definitely does convey their premium standard to the consumer.

Although a U.S. manufacturer, C.R.E.A.M e-liquids are available for purchase in Europe through their official UK/EU distributer, Vivd Vapes. At present, VIII is available in 30ml bottles at nicotine strengths of 0mg, 3mg, 6mg and 12mg. They are produced in a VG:PG ratio of 70:30.

The manufacturer has described the flavour of VIII as a ‘rich and buttery vanilla pound cake, doused with decadent whipped cream, topped with vine ripened strawberries.’ Whilst strawberries and cream has been done extensively by numerous premium manufacturers, the part that caught my attention was the inclusion of the vanilla pound cake. This sounded like an interesting spin on the traditional flavour profile, and I was excited to give this e-liquid a go.

I’ve been vaping this over the past few days at a strength of 3mg. It is wonderful, seriously. The vanilla pound cake adds a great amount of depth to the light, sweet flavour that the strawberries and cream would normally produce on their own. The richness of the cake comes through strongly, with just the right balance of sweetness added on the exhale by the strawberry. The creaminess of the vape is superb; there is fantastic body to this and the amount of vapour produced is impressive.

If you are a lover of the sweetness of strawberries and cream, but want something that can be used as an ADV without becoming sickeningly sweet and with a lot more depth, then VIII is definitely a flavour that you should get to know.
