Flavours in e-cigarettes

 Canadian Tobacco, Alcohol and Drugs Survey, 2015. See data table with 95% confidence intervals below.E-cigarettes and e-liquids are manufactured in a variety of flavours. When those who had ever used e-cigarettes were asked about their usual flavour of e-cigarette, 44.3% reported that they had no usual flavour; this figure dropped to 23.7% among those who had used an e-cigarette in the past 30 days. Fruit and tobacco were the most popular usual flavours among both ever and past 30-day users (Figure 12.22).

Usual flavours were similar by sex (data not shown). However, they appeared to vary by age (Figure 12.23), with fruit flavours most popular among younger users, and tobacco flavour most popular among older users. 

 Usual e-cigarette flavours among ever users of e-cigarettes, by age group, 2015. ! Estimate suppressed due to unacceptable quality (for age 15-19 tobacco flavour, age 25-44 mint/menthol flavour and other flavours, and age 45+ candy/dessert flavours). Data source: Canadian Tobacco, Alcohol and Drugs Survey, 2015. See data table with 95% confidence intervals below.

Considering the smoking status of e-cigarette users, tobacco was the usual flavour for 22.4%a of current daily smokers, 7.1%b of non-daily smokers, and 16.4%c of former smokers, but too few never smokers to report an estimate. Only one-third (33.5%d) of smokers did not have a usual flavour, compared to around half of other groups (49.9%e of non-daily smokers, 47.7%f of former smokers, and 54.1%g of never smokers).
