Vape Pockee by Drip Social clone. Almost impossible to find anymore so I decided to make my own "clone" or variation that I feel is a close enough facsimile for my palette. Still a semi work in progress, but I think I've nailed it down pretty much. I feel like the original has a LOT more sweetener in it, but I much prefer it with more flavor, less sweetener. Speed/heat steep doesn't seem to do much to this stuff, but time is definitely morphing it. 5 day steep seems to really make it pop, but even as SNV it's pretty excellent. If you sub Rick's with CAPS Super Sweet make sure you cut it in half as the super sweet really is... super sweet, lol! Maltol used to brighten the berries and keep them strong after steep.
14 day steep and this stuff sweetens up a LOT. The strawberry has stayed strong and the creaminess/graham is evident on the exhale. 21 days and it's really sitting well on the palette. Strawberries on the inhale, cream and biscuit on the exhale with a lot of sweetness, but not like a frosting or crunchy either... just, sweet!
(Added 0.5% INW Biscuit as I was still missing some of the pretzel note, BAM.)
Adjust nic to your needs, should not affect much other than throat hit. Rich and creamy, super strawberry goodness.

A thick creamy Pistachio Pudding with the right amount of sweetness.
Let's get the easiest stuff out of the way. I chose EM as my sweetener because it tends to thicken custards/puddings in addition to providing sweetness.
The pistachio portion of my pudding is formed with FA Almond, INW Marzipan, and of course TFA Pistachio. I purposely did NOT use FA Marzipan, as INW's version provides a more creamy feel.
Our 'pudding' base is formed with both FLV Vanilla Pudding and INW Shisha Vanilla. The INW SV adds a slight boost to the vanilla pudding which was very useful in this recipe.
STEEP: 9 DAYS(steeping with this particular mix is a must!)
As always, please dont use free offerings of recipes for commercial gain & dont post to other websites without permission.
Nectarine apricot and passion fruit are the main notes. Enhanced with Fa orange to brighten the nectarine a little bit of lemon lime for the Sorbet aspect and marzipan for the sweetness. EM serves as an emulsifier and gives you a sweet exhale aspect of sorbet without the sweetness of Sucralose that would turn it into a candy.
Sweetener is optional I would say keep it under 0.5%
Polar Blast and WS23 are optional at around 0.5%
If you want to add cream and keep the integrity of the mix I recommend FA Custard for the creamy lemon notes at 0.75% with Cream Fresh at 0.25%
If you want it deeper add a touch of Brandy at 0.50% to 1.0%
Giant raspberry/blackberry gumdrop candy. Has wings and laser eyeballs. Is powerful giant from space. Does collateral damage + battle. This is Dropra, your Quixotic deity in red and black.
HS Blueberry, INW Cactus, and TPA Sweet Raspberry to the core. When your honor and your city are at stake, Dropra will fight to preserve your honor.
WF Dweeb Candy adds the armor coating of tart, tiny, nerd-like spheres. Crisp surface tension and crisp flavor, right up front. If looks could kill, it wouldn’t be Dropra’s fault. He respects innocence! Hence the sweeteners.
Dropra’s ornamental exoskeleton is filled with some sort of ...mysterious ... space goo. Thin outer layers of pineapple gummy bear (27 Bears) form a big fat sack around a sloshy core of soapy stirred jello (Jelly Candy). And ...I suppose there’s gotta be some glands in there, pumping the hormones of heroism that drive him? Oh right, we already covered that with the berries and cactus.
A much BETTER version of my $100 Strawberry Custard
FA Premium Custard is the most realistic custard on the market, hands down. Where CAP VC is oftentimes too eggy and weird tasting(though I enjoy the HELL out of it), FA's version is perfection. TFA Ethyl Maltol is used here because frankly, EM does a better job at not only sweetening custards, but also performs double duty by thickening custards.
Recommended steep: 7 days(but good fresh)
Recommended VG: 80%

Enjoy this full flavored, heavy "sticky" caramel Pistachio RY4
You MUST use Health Cabin Caramel for this mix. It is the only sticky caramel on the market(imho) currently & is a perfect mate for TFA Double RY4! No ifs, ands, or buts!!!!
TFA Toasted Marshmallow adds a great toasted tobacco' nuance. TFA Red Oak...what can I say? It adds the perfect woody aftertaste that most RY4s lack. No extra vanilla flavoring was needed here, as TFA Double RY4 has that covered! CAP Sugar Cookie adds sweetness, as well as helping the TFA Pistachio with that roasted feel I was looking for.
2 week steep recommended
If you prefer your RY4 sweeter, you can bump up the EM to 0.75-1%
