The Finest Choc Mint Recipe I have ever tasted!
Last week the "Developed" team on you tube attempted to create this profile and struggled. In the background I liked the idea of this profile so I challenged myself to create a version of this.
First I came up with a concept recipe and then mixed it live on you tube on my channel here:
Off the shake it was pleasant but I had a question mark over the texture off the shake. However like most mixes I do I try and return back to them after a steep to learn more. This one after a couple of days was ok but not the texture I was after but after a week I am real happy with this.
The mint was a bit to prominent for my liking off the shake & at two days but after a week it has settled nicely.
Bottom line is, this has turned out to be the most delicious choc mint recipe that I have not only tasted but also created and I have tried quite a few.
What I did & Why:
I referred to real life recipes, previous successful macaron eLiquid recipes and experience from single flavor testing ect to finally come up with this recipe that turned out amazing.
The Choc & MInt - I chose LB Lava Cake as I wanted an honest yet dense flavoured chocolate that wouldn't offend here and this ended up being a good choice along with some help from the contrasting chocolate notes that comes with MB Cookie BIte. The Mint couldn't only be about the flavour of the mint. It also had to be about the illusion of texture. The only mint I know of that I get a slight chewy like type of mint from is Capella Cool Mint & it works here beautifully, not only for the mint but seemingly assists with textual mouthfeel.
However, it did take time to settle where I think it's at the right level. You could bring this down to around 0.75% but I don't think it would assist as well with the overall mouthfeel.
The Bakery - In my experience a macaron has a unique yet delectable texture and this is the biggest challenge of this profile and the developed team also seemed to struggle with for good reason, it's a massive level of difficulty. The macaron has crunch, chewiness, a meringue like texture and little mellow cream through the center.
To obtain the separation of all that in an eLiquid is no easy feat. I balanced the crunch from the tones of the MB Cookie Bite and the FA Almond, the chewiness come out from the Cap Whipped Marshmallow, a little from the FA meringue and the Cap Cool Mint. The meringue like texture came from the contrasting tones of sweetness from FA Meringue, OOO Powdered sugar and to be honest the lucky dip of notes that seemingly married together nicely from most of the concentrates that just seem to sell the over all mouthfeel of this very difficult bakery profile.
The Cream and Gloss of the Bakery - Macaron's have that lovely gloss on the bakery and to get that to feel real with everything else here I thought initially would be a challenge. Till I added VT Vanilla Buttercream Frosting that is. The buttery part of that really assists with that gloss I think and it gives a lovely center of dessert cream through the middle which just works.
This was a recipe of taking chances, combining experience and taking inspiration and going with it, but it works!
I am so glad that I took a chance and didn't give up on this as most could, because I now have a delicious all day vape that will be in a 250ml bottle ready to enjoy when ever I want.
Give it a go and let me know what you thought of this!
There are no subs here, but don't let that hold you back from experimenting and trying other ways and let me me know how that went, "Together, Let's Discover"
I tested on a Wotofo Recurve RDA 0.2ohm SST coils at 60w
I hope you enjoy this just as much as I enjoyed creating this recipe, but let me know what you thought in the comments below.
Seriously if you like a solid recipe that works give it a go!
Cheers for reading this far, now go and get mixing!

Profile: Sour melon candy!
This is my pod version, of the original My Melon Balls that I made.
It's not quite as strong as the original, as that one is made for high powered devices, but it works tremendously in a pod!
I took out the CAP Sweet Guava as the original has, as it didn't really come through in the pod at all.
I upped the melons and the powdered sugar a tad to boost them for the flavor in a low powered device, and at the same down taking the WF Sour Vall Candy SC down a little, to not dominate the melons too much.
All in all, this tastes amazing in a pod device!
Feel free to check out the original for high powered devices.
Profile: Danish puff pastry with vanilla pudding, powdered sugar and a little almond
Been through several version of this.
First few version I used CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl, but it wasn't really I was looking for as the cinnamon note was way too heavy for what I was going for.
I traditional danish "spandauer" doesn't have any cinnamon in it at all, so my idea for making the pastry with it got scrapped.
I kept in VT Croissant that has been there from the start, but I felt it didn't really hold up on it's own. So I introduced WF Croissant SC to back it up. At 1% I feel it does the job backing up the 3% VT Croissant.
For the pudding I have tried a few custards such as FA Custard and Custard Prem. CAP Vanilla Custard was at the table at some point too, all in some variations with FLV Vanilla Pudding.
Sadly, no matter the combination I did, I just felt it was too overpowering, so for my final version, I decided to just stick it with FLV Vanilla Pudding.
The almond just serves as an accent for topping and so does the OOO Powdered Sugar.
It's a simple recipe, but I quite like it despite the simplicity it has.
I feel this is best after about 12 days, but very enjoyable after just 7.
"A spoonful of spooky fun in every bowl, Franken Berry is a whimsical way to start the day. Made with whole grain corn, Franken Berry combines strawberry-flavored cereal with colorful marshmallow shapes to create a delicious cereal that kids and adults can enjoy.
Ok! Trick or treat !
And know the real description:
Mixed berry marshmallow cereals and milk.
CAP Cereal 27 is the king, you have the perfect corn cereal vape. OOO Powdered Sugar makes them sugary coted.
2% OOO Cream Milky Undetone and 0.75% FLV Cream with the support of TPA Marshmallow create a rich sweet cereal milk.
CAP Sweet Strawberry and FLV Berry Blend are mostly artificial or candied strawberry and berry flavours that go pretty well here.
0.5% Berry blend makes CAP sweet strawberry deeper and more interesting.
The blackberry/raspberry notes in Berry blend makes the milk kind of purplely, i love it.
TPA Marshmallow fits very well the profile, helps with the milk base, sweetness and mouthfeel, as well as giving marshmallow flavour.
Also OOO Powdered Sugar Makes the illusion of having Sugar Coated marshmallows floating in milk more than a marshmallow cream.
Profile: Black licorice and dark berry candy - flavor of my childhood.
Was a bit up and down with this one to get the licorice balanced correctly. Goal was to get some anise and some salmiak but not too much of either.
First version contained 2.5% FA Black Touch and 1% CAP Licorice - Too much anise and too little (none really) salmiak.
So I took FA Black Touch down .5% and added that .5% to the CAP Licorice - great success!
Next up was to balance the berries.
First version I used 1% FLV boysenberry, 0.5% FA Blackcurrant and 2% WF Sour Blue Raspberry Candy.
The Sour Blue Raspberry Candy added some good taste, but sadly brought along some perfume as well, which I didn't care much for.
After talking it over with @nowar - who suggested CAP Jelly Candy (lots and lots of credit to him for that), Sour Blue Raspberry Candy was scrapped in favor.
Second version - now with @nowar onboard, we felt the berries lacked a little, so we added another .25% to the FLV Boysenberry and struck gold!
Powdered sugar is mainly there to help the FLV Boysenberry with the taste of candy.
CAP Super Sweet does not need an explanation why its there.
To me this taste just like my childhood, where to @nowar this taste like adulthood - thought that was a funny little quote to have in.
Where I come from, a mixture of black licorice and berries is not unheard of - in fact, it's very common and kids do enjoy that flavor a lot.
Please do enjoy!
Profile: Melon candy!
I recently picked up a few candy flavors that I wanted to work with, to cover some ground in that area as well.
The best way for me to start working with candy, was to find a fruit profile that I really enjoy and in this case, that would be melons.
Choices of flavors:
For the melon, I landed pretty securely on FLV Wild Melon, as it gives a great bunch of melons in one single concentrate.
But I felt it needed a little extra, so I tossed in FLV Watermelon as well as a booster.
Further I wanted to bolster the sweetness of the melons and at the same time start adding in the candy effect to the fruits. Here my choice fell on CAP Sweet Guava.
While Sweet Guava on its own can be very weak, it does have some awesome abilities to both sweeten up other fruits and add some nice exotic top notes.
To make the candy a candy, but not sugary disgustingly sweet candy my choices fell on OOO Powdered Sugar and WF Sour Ball Candy.
Those two always works out great in a combo. The powdered sugar adds a great sugary accent, that you just cannot get out of a sweetener, where the Sour Ball Candy adds the texture of a sort of chewy candy and brings a little sourness.
All in all, I'm pretty satisfied.
It's good right off the rip, but I suggest you leave it for half a day.
The WF Sour Ball Candy and Powdered sugar needs a few hours to really blend in well with the fruits to make it shine.
This is version 2 of this profile attempt and I am very happy with it
The pastry base uses JF biscuit and wf croissant to try and achieve a light buttery flaky pastry
I decided to go with FLV vanilla pudding for that gooey stuff in the pic. It adds a nice vanilla note and some mouth feel
Jf Sweet strawberry and FA juicy strawberry to go for a sweet realistic strawberry
And WF powdered sugar because it’s on the pastry.
I added .25% cap super sweet to make these delicious flavors pop but feel free to omit if that’s not your thing.
Kourabiedes is a delicious traditional Greek treat, packed with the aromas of fresh butter and roasted almonds and garnished with luscious layers of icing sugar. Hopefully when you eat this one you don't cough from inhaling all the icing sugar like I always do in real life!!
Top: Powdered Sugar, Frosting
Bridge: Almond Cookie,
Body: Biscuit, Cookie, Shortbread Cookie, Golden Butter, Almond Custard
Accent: Toasted Almond
Steep 6 days or more.
Best suited for RDA.
