Twitter user Rob Whisman spotted a number of poor reviews for generic food flavouring on Amazon, and on taking a closer look figured out that a number of vapers had been mistaking the flavourings for e-liquids. “It’s fun looking up concentrated food flavouring on amazon and finding people who thought it was vape juice,” he tweeted.
