Flavor Description: Pineapple heavy gummy bears, executed pretty well overall.
Texture here is actually pretty solid. Not quite as thick, dense, and chewy as 27 Fish, but it has that waxy thing from actual gummy bears down pretty well. Actually feels like it coats your mouth with that halfway dissolved gelatin thing that a mouthful of gummy bears has going on.
And it tastes like gummy bears. Mostly like white pineapple gummy bears. There's some actual tartness here that could either be a tarter take on pineapple or more of a discrete orange flavor. I'm also getting some sweeter strawberryish flavor in here too. The classic haribo flavors are raspberry, strawberry, lemon, orange, and pineapple... and I could definitely see all of those being in here but it's weighted more towards the pineapple and the citrus.
The only direct competition that I've had for this would be FW Gummy Candy, and this has a much better mouthfeel but it does have a pretty identifiable fruit flavored attached. FW Gummy Candy has always sort of worked a bit better in theory than in practice for me, so while 27 bears might not theoretically be as versatile, It'll work better when the actual flavor of gummy bears isn't going to get in the way.
Off-flavors: Not really, pretty much just gummy bears. Gets a bit chemical at high percentages, but nothing too bad within usable percentage ranges.
Throat Hit: Light to moderate. I do get a bit of harshness on this, but it seems to settle in a bit moderately quickly and smooth back out. Initially seems to dry out your mouth a bit and that might be contributing.
Percentage testing: At 2%, this is weaker. I'm mostly getting a light candy pineapple. Seems to be missing some of the other fruit accents in there. Texture is a little sticky, but it's more like a dry sticky and not that gelatinous gummy bear thing.
Filled in quite a bit at 5%. Still very much pineapple forward, but I'm picking up some extra citrus tartness and some "red flavor" way in the back. Flavor still feels like it could be maybe just a touch more saturated.
Trying this up at 8%, I'm starting to find some of the chemical edges of this flavor. The red part has filled in a bit but it's almost tasting a little too citrus heavier. Mouthfeel is dramatically better than 5%.
Just based on these tests, I'd probably use this an accent flavor around 3% and a primary flavor around 6-7%.
Uses & Pairings: A higher percentage of this concentrate, too much sweetener, and some questionable marketing and you've got yourself a hype flavor. This could use maybe a bit more "red" to it with a candied strawberry or raspberry, and maybe some vanilla swirl to round the edges off, but pretty remarkably close to a single flavor gummy bear as it is.
Should be useful as a slightly tart, gummy mouthfeel additive for more diverse candy profiles. I don't think you're completely going to get away from the fruitiness here, but you can probably overwhelm it with your fruit flavor of choice especially at lower percentages. The mouthfeel shows ups a bit later than than the fruit flavor, so it'll be fairly difficult to get a clear fruit flavor not already in that gummy bear spectrum and still get all of that mouthfeel.
Second Opinions: Still fairly new.

Here's the product page from Capella. Their description: "Silverline’s new mystery jelly treat, 27 Bears will surely satisfy your inner sweet tooth. A clear gummy texture with a sweet, sugary taste that will leave you growling for more!" Ain't no mystery here. It's gummy bears.

While SFT the SSA Cola i had a "Ratatouille moment" that immediately brought me back several years when i enjoyed those fizzy cola candies.I knew i had to recreate those in a vape form
The candies had a fizzy candy cola flavour with a tart+sour note and a dash of lemon
VT Fizzy Sherbet was used for the lemon note and adds to the wonderful fizzyness/effervescence you get from SSA Cola
CAP 27 Bears adds the gummy candy note
WFs Sour Ball Candy and Cotton candy JB are great additives that complete the recipe by giving it a sour/tart and candied sugary note
Enjoy this after an overnight steep and sweeten to taste
Tested on a citadel SFT 0.5Ω @ 33Watts
This is a Raspberry Jelly (Jello)
Tested on a Profile 1.5 RDA 0.13 Mesh at approx 100w
27 Bears and Gummy Worm candy bring the gummy texture along with WF Raspberry Jelly Bean.
As these are more of a Gummy than the Jelly Texture I was going for VTA Red Soft candy softens the Gummy up bringing this into a Jelly along with the VT Raspberry Jam
The Raspberry is a blend of candy sweet Raspberries from all of the flavours except for Gummy Worm Candy
Sweet, smooth and tropical. TFA Jackfruit on top of the strangeness of FLV Guanabana. FLV Sugarloaf Pineapple and VT Banana Custard supports the Guanabana and strawberry note in this Custard Apple. TFA Marshmallow to sweeten + smooth it out and CAP 27 Bears to gum it all together and take advantage of the pineapple note.
A tropical gummy candy.
WF Tropical Gummy Candy is just a guava gummy.
FLV Pink Guava for a little sharpness
FLV Pineapple to add another layer and wetness.
CAP 27 Bears for texture and to reinforce the pineapple.
SSA Ripe Coconut for warmth and a little creaminess.
TFA Marshmallow to help bind everything together.
