I'm already addicted to apple-cinnamon profiles, and after trying oddDrop's Jacker I wanted to make one, but with strawberry milk.
\\Mixed At: 70vg\30pg
\\Steep Time: 5-7 Days
Back in my college days, my friends and I would drive around in the country, listen to Sublime, and do what most college kids do in that situation (cough cough). When we got back to the dorm, I would bust out my secret stash of Apple Jacks and get my strawberry milk out of the mini fridge. This is my best attempt thus far to recreate that moment.
The biggest challenge I had with this recipe? Getting the apple-cinnamon and strawberry to be distinguishable. A lot of batches I would be able to taste one or the other, but never both, and I think I finally cracked it.
Cereal Base: OddDrop was spot on with what CAP Apple Snacks provides, a wonderful dried apple and oat-grain flavor. The only big issue I had with Jacker is what is probably going to get me ostracized, I'm not a fan of CAP Cereal 27. I KNOW, it's crazy. I decided to still use it, but only at 1%, at 1% it still gives us a bit of that crunchy/corn note and still plays well off of the oat-grain notes from a slight increase in CAP Apple Snacks.
A lot of the recipes on here use FA Stark to help with the Apple notes, and they were absolutely right, it really helps the apple in this recipe, but again it was a little too high for me, I was almost getting a bit of a watery apple juice note at 1%. At 0.66% it helps round it out a bit more.
To get our cinnamon on with our apple, I went with the old classic FLV Rich Cinnamon. You only need 1 drop/30ml and it does the trick. I would wager that you could even drop the strawberry and keep the rest for a bangin Apple Jacks recipe on it's own. Also this gets a surprising boost from RF Strawberry Gelato (more on that later)
Milk Base: I want to give 100% credit to SteamOn's cereal milk base. It is spot on and is both tough enough against other flavors to it stand out, but malleable enough to bend it to my will. If you ever want to start working on a cereal w/milk recipe, SteamOn has got you covered. The only thing I did was round up meringue 0.05% just because I thought it looked weird.
Strawberry: TPA Strawberry Ripe is awesome, but is too "pink" for this profile if that makes sense. INW Shisha Strawberry was a front-runner but I always get this slightly earthy note from it that turns me off in certain recipes unless it's done right (like wh1skeyk1ng's Rhubarb Delight ). I decided to try a couple of new strawberries that I didn't have as much experience with. I really liked the notes I got from RF Strawberry Gelato SC from Tootall's Battered Berry, but in the never ending battle with tasting both apple-cinnamon AND strawberry in this mix it was too weak on it's own, and just increasing it caused the gelato notes to take over the recipe. So I included RF Strawberry SC to help both fruits in this profile. The best part? The slightly-granular note from RF Strawberry Gelato SC helps out our cereal base. It's one of those things where you're not sure why it works but it does.
This Cereal is Sweet: I think this is the first recipe in a while where I would say sweetener is required. I mean, look at the side of a box of Apple Jacks and you'll see why. 12 grams of sugar in 1 CUP, who the hell only eats 1 CUP of cereal for breakfast? Add some strawberry milk and you're on the sugar train to diabetes town. Anyway yes, CAP SS, even just a little like in this one, is needed at times. To really create that store-bought sugar bomb you took off the shelf this recipe needs it.
Epilogue: I swear the longer I write my notes on these the more passionate I get. I hope you like what I probably spent way too long on, and be sure to leave a review as well! I always enjoy hearing constructive criticism and any suggestions people might have. Lastly, be sure to try out the other guy's recipes I linked here, if it weren't for them I don't think I could have gotten this together.
April 2018 Mixers Club submission
I didn’t quite nail what i was after but it turned out tasty nonetheless. Most of the strawberry fades out during the steep.
Notes: I started messing with this profile months ago, and after a few different variations I never could come up with anything i was satisfied with. So I abandoned it. Until a week ago i decided to revisit it. For my 2nd mixersclub submission. I pretty much gutted my failed original recipes, and simplified it to see if it wouldn’t turn out a muddled mess like my previous attempts
FW Creamy Sponge Cake:i went with it bc it is a soft “twinkie” like cake with cream. Which is what i was looking for this recipe.
TPA strawberry ripe:is still my favorite strawberry flavor. It hits all the marks i am looking for i a strawberry flavor but it does fade. Which i why i added RF SC Strawberry one of my favorite strawberries for mixing with other strawberries
FLV Elderflower: To build a Strawberry Elderflower sponge cake. You obviously need an Elderflower flavor, and this is only option I had. This flavor did that some time to whip into submission to get it not to overpower the other flavors i wanted to taste in this recipe.
INW Custard: Quickly became my favorite custard a few months back when I added to my arsenal. The culinary recipe I loosely based this off. Used a warm creamy/runny vanilla custard. Which INW is not but it works in here plus it cuts the steep exponentially.
●it is more spot-on to the profile with 2% Strawberry (TPA) but i hate this concetrate so i replaced it with Strawberry (RF)
●For the year in mixing candy challenge
●The licence to chew:
In 1930 Edmund Münster acquires the licence to produce an innovative, fruity chew "without gum, made of sugar, syrup and other ingredients". He calls it MAOAM and at Easter 1931, he brings it on the market as "an extremly delicious, highly sought-after specialty candy".
i get some chemical offnotes in the middle of the exale
suggestions on how to get rid of them are very welcome☡☢
Yeah I know another freakin strawberry. Its been a awhile since I whipped up a strawberry so what the hell. Playing with the FA breakfast cereal in this one. A nice strawberry milk that will keep you guessing. Its yummy IMO!!! . You can sub out your favorite strawberry stone if you want but Rf and inw are my favs in this one.. Its easy, fun and vapes great. Enjoy!!!!!
I’ve never tried SJM so I have no idea how close Wayne’s remix is to the original juice. I mixed it his recipe then added .5% RF Baked Bread because I wanted more of a toast note, which was gawd aweful. This is a strong pungent flavor that reminds me of stale malty beer. It was sensory overload,... The next day I mixed and immediately tasted that weird note again only not as strong. Did some searching and found Shyndo’s bread stone, which uses Cereal 27 and baked bread at a 4:1 ratio with a dash of toasted marshmallow. I mixed another bottle and added 1% cereal 27 and a few drops of toasted marshmallow that was good.
I suspect the AP in cereal 27 calms down the funky notes in Baked Bread. With that in mind I mixed another bottle and this time added .6% FA Apple Pie. You could probably use it between .5 - .75% depending on your taste. FA Apple Pie provides the much needed AP kick that rounds out the bread and adds subtle baked sweetness without the spice. Of the versions I’ve made this is my favorite.
If you don’t have RF strawberry jam w/toast you could probably make it with a low % of Baked Bread and up the percentages strawberries. This will be a work in progress, but at least I have something more enjoyable for my taste. Thanks Wayne and Shyndo! Definitely a tough one to clone
I was working on a different profile for the upcoming "remix month" and happened to have FLV Mango and Peach on the desk next to the bottles of flavorings I was working with. Thought it would be an interesting combo. I am not going to break the flavors down here, read this as not even pretending to have a goal in mind with this, I thought it would be interesting and good, and it is ;)
I have only done two versions of this one just as is and one with .3% Super Sweet. I really like both versions. This version is a bit more interesting in that as you change your wattage, airflow different aspects of it will shine through. The version with super sweet seems to be a bit more in your face but more linear losing a bit of it's complexity.
Have a mix, have a vape, enjoy
