The last time we tried flavored lube we thought anything would be better than the sticky nasty tasting stuff we had just put in our mouths. So, thank you, Sliquid, this is a huge improvement!
We tested out 3 flavors as part of their Swirl series*:
Cherry Vanilla: can you call a lube fresh tasting? This one was. It was a bit like cream soda, it had a mild vanilla flavor, and was the most natural flavor against the skin. Our favorite out of the 3.
Green Apple: also had a mild flavor, sweet but not too sweet, and slightly tangy.
Blue Raspberry: the most “fake” tasting of the 3, still not bad though.
All of the lubes went on smoothly, and stayed smooth. The flavor diminished after 5 – 10 minutes with all the saliva getting mixed in, but it was easy enough to add in a little more of the lube to give the flavor a boost. We were pretty impressed that even after allowing the lube to dry, it never got sticky or tacky, and there was no lingering aroma. We also liked how easy it was to transport and share these packs. At 5 mL each, they can easily fit into a purse, wallet, pocket, or put in an envelope and mailed to a friend halfway across the country.

The only ingredient that doesn’t sit well with us is aspartame, a low-calorie artificial sweetener that is used in most sugar-free chewing gums. There is controversy over whether or how much aspartame is hazardous to the health. Regardless, people with Phenylketonuria (PKU) should avoid this flavored lube.
