Shortly over a year ago, a new company made their debut in the vaping world, quickly grabbing attention on Instagram and rapidly becoming highly in demand across the globe and that company is Jam Monster.
Jam Monster started out with three initial flavor offerings and they were Strawberry, Blueberry, and Grape. Today we will take a look at Strawberry Jam Monster and discover its tastes.
Jam Monster Strawberry
- Bottle Size:100ml
- Nicotine Strength:3Mg
- Cost of Bottle: Varies between sellers but average of 49.99-54.99
Jam Monster Strawberry is a fairly simple, yet complex idea. Combining sweet sticky strawberry jam with golden butter and a layer of toast. Often times with flavors such as a strawberry the end results can vary greatly resulting in what can sometimes taste like an artifical, off tasting strawberry or perhaps sometimes a candy-like strawberry. Candied strawberry serves a purpose in certain situations but in this one, we need the fresh tasting strawberry jam.
When tasting this e-liquid there are strong flavor notes of strawberry, easily the main note and it stands out well above any other note in the mix. The strawberry we find in this is exactly as it should be, sweet and sticky while tasting slightly fresh. There are subtle notes of an artificial type strawberry but they are barely noticeable and the sweetness of the strawberry is fairly light and most likely coming from the flavoring rather than added sweetener.
Butter is not often found as a main note or supporting note in most e-liquids and for good reason. Butter flavors generally contain high amounts of Diacetyl and most people try to avoid high Diacetyl content liquids. For the most part since the Diacetyl scare came around most have accepted it as commonplace. Diacetyl in E-Liquid is considerably lower than that of a cigarette.
The Butter in this mix is fairly noticeable and comes out mostly on the inhale a few seconds after picking up on the strawberry note. This flavor note does in some ways resemble a buttery taste but to compare it directly to the taste of real butter would not be correct.
Real butter has a fairly characteristic taste that anyone who uses it would recognize instantly and this Jam Monster Strawberry has more of a margarine taste to it rather than butter although it does fit in nicely with the strawberry we would not say that this is a distinguishable butter taste.
Here is the one part of this e-liquid that perhaps is the biggest disappointment. Nowhere in this tasting did we discover a note that would be easily relatable to the taste of toast. Looking past the flavor of toast, even a slight dough or bread note would do well to support the overall experience that they are aiming for with this flavor.
Perhaps it is lost within the folds of the strawberry and the butter as those two flavors are fairly overpowering and combined together could easily push down another note if it is not strong enough to poke through.

Jam Monster Strawberry E-Liquid Final Thoughts:
Jam Monster is fairly well respected in the vaping community and they have certainly earned their place to be there.
The hype behind the product may have been inflated a little bit over social media and the product its self is fairly average. The price tag for a 100ml bottle is a bit above the average price and is slightly overpriced for what it is. This does not mean that it was not enjoyable rather just that for what you get versus what you pay I do not believe the two meet up.
Will I Buy It Again?
I probably would not consider purchasing this again in the future but will consider other flavors from Jam Monster.
