The goal here was to create a grape flavored bubblegum with a texture reminiscent of the old individually wrapped grape bazooka joe/double bubble style gum. I wanted a nice juicy, candied grape flavor/texture with, at the same time, somewhat of a dry smooth texture to emulate the dryness that one would find on the outside of the gum before chewing it and I think this easy, simple recipe hit the nail on the head.
CAP-Bubble Gum. This was a no brainer on the best bubblegum to use here and in all honesty the best bubblegum to use, period. I tried numerous bubblegums and none of the 6 that I have on hand would have gotten the job done like the CAP did. It provided me with the perfect flavor and texture for the profile I was after. It provided me with that dry, somewhat chewy 'pink' flavor. I started out at 2% but, quickly realized that this this low the flavor was not full enough so, I upped it to 4% and bingo, I got what I was looking for. However, that percentage also provide me with a little harshness which I was not fond of.
FW-Whipped Cream. To curb the slight bit of harshness from the bubblegum I knew that this concentrate would remedy it. I've worked with this ingredient extensively and for some extra mouthfeel and 'smoothing out' properties it was the perfect fit. I started with it at .5% and it worked but, it didn't cut down enough of the harshness. I bumped it to .75% and voila, harshness gone, and a little extra mouthfeel and body.
FW-Grape Soda. I really wanted a single grape flavor that provided the juiciest qualities along with being full bodied and somewhat candied and non realistic. Having worked with this flavor before I new it would be the perfect fit and right off the bat it was. I tinkered around with other grapes just to see if I could improve what I already had unsuccessfully and ended up going with this, my original choice. Having used it at 3% elsewhere I knew that was right where it needed to be.
CAP-Super Sweet. Of course, being that this is a bubblegum we needed to add a little extra sweetness to it so, .5% suited this mix perfectly. Feel free to raise or lower this to preference.
FLV-Candy Roll. Having watch all of the NOTED series and taking the advice from ID10-T on this possibly working to add dryness to a bubblegum, I decided to try it. It worked. And at .5% it seemed to add what I was looking for without compromising flavor at all.
Right off the shake it's pretty well good to go. I dont wait for a steep personally but, I do notice that after the 3 day mark the flavors seem to marry together and become more so one with eachother.
Hope you enjoy!
Got this idea after Wayne's Concept to Concentrate series. I spent a lot of time in college working with rappers producing and mixing tracks for them, and dirty sprite was a staple in the booth. I do not want to promote the use of drinking codeine, but if I were to vape a delicious e-juice version of it, this is what I came up with. A lemon/lime soda dominant flavor with grape syrup and hard candies.
CAP Lemon Lime/TFA Citrus Punch/TFA Champagne/VT Fizzy Sherbet - Soda base, trying to go with more of a sprite feel
FW Grape Soda - Wanted a thick syrup texture to the grape on this one, and the feel with FW Grape Soda really lingers on the tongue, I left this a little light in the recipe as a small after-note
FW Hard Candy - Just an addition to get some of that hard candy taste in with the juice, adds some additional sweetness
TFA Koolada/CAP Super Sweet - These are optional, but I usually like my soda vapes with a little Koolada and CAP Super Sweet if you want to make it pop even more
This is my strawberry grape soda mix, I really enjoy this simple recipe - and after all the mixes I test and compare, I eventually come right back to this one, almost just like good old missionary - just kidding. This is a shake and vape, you will find it starts off a bit more Grape forward, but then as time goes by you will taste the strawberry coming through. These two fruits just "jel" well together - I wont call it blending ;)
This is a sweet sugary soda...... yeah, I have a crazy sweet tooth.
TFA Strawberry Ripe & CAP Strawberry Sweet & TFA Strawberry = My syrupy strawberry stone
CAP Jelly Candy = Adds a bit of texture, also adds some candy vibes to the soda.
WS23 = Closest thing to a cold fizz you going to get. (I used a 20% dilution in my mix)
this was one of my favorite sodas as a kid and I wanted too put this in a vape and try it out so I used tfa cola syrup to help with the thickness part of it and tfa champagne to give it that fizziness in the soda and cap grape too help out the bring out that grape soda alil more and also grape juice till fill out the grape soda and give it some depth and with alil koolada in there to make it seem like its sitting in a glass of ice
One of my first go to vendors was MBV. I always ordered their Thug Juice. I wanted to take a trip back to the roots of my vaping journey. This is a remix of my first ADV - Thug Juice.
OOO grape is the only grape i currently have in stock. I am quite sure that there are other grapes that may work in its place. If so, please let me know! :)
I recently got FW Grape Soda, and when I did a knuckle test, I was flooded with childhood memories of grape Kool-Aid, and knew I needed to mix up a batch.
Grape soda , I started off at 5%, but the flavor was not strong enough, so I kicked it up to 8. I added just enough Juicy Lemon to accent the grape and brighten it a bit. A little dragonfruit to smooth and sweeten, and Supersweet for the cup of sugar sweetness.
Feel free to adjust the sweetness to your taste , or add Koolada or WS23 to chill it down a bit
