I made this a long time ago, but I thought I'd share this on here. This is a clone for Vape Wild's "Circus Freak" which is now called, "Circus Bear". What makes this recipe different is the banana in this. It is very sweet. It didnt take long to find that it was TPA's Banana. That's also why I added Cap bubble gum. Cap Bubble gum tastes just like the sweetness inside of TPA Banana, so it big time helps pop it out! I have no clue if they even use cap bubble gum in the real recipe but im telling you, it works great! Everything else I added through trial and error trying to clone the recipe. I added some Banana Cream to blend the sweet banana bubble gum profile as well as adds to creaminess with the Bavarian cream. I added strawberry ripe for the strawberry profile and a little sb sweet to make it sweeter. Cap or tfa van custard both work for this. Its been a long time since ive tried the two back to back since i dont buy Ejuice hardly at all anymore. So if any of you have some Circus Bear or Circus Freak (though that bottle may be expired by now lol) at home, let me know what you think.
Steep for at least a week.
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!
A pretty close remix of Naked 100 Yummy Gum aka Triple Strawberry now...I had a bottle and ran out and then tried to recreate it with what I think it's pretty close for sure..It's even the same color after steeping a golden yellow..Now not sure there would be Candy Jammy Wizard in the original I just find that adding it makes it a little more strawberry gummy candy like for that added Sugar Lips effect
A third or fourth version of my take on Vapoureyes' Heisenberg (https://vapoureyes.com.au/products/heisenberg).
Icy cold blueberry, some bubblegum in the background. Derived from many of the available Heisenberg clones, tuned towards the VE version. It's close enough that I'll settle.
TFA Blueberry Candy - The base blueberry. Works great here at 5%.
TFA Raspberry Sweet - Adds another dimension to the blueberry candy. More of a dark, fuzzy berry background.
Cap Bubble Gum - There is a clear bubble gum note in Heisenberg, cap at 4% is weak enough but closely resembles the bubblegum undertones.
Cap Double Apple - Slightly crispy, bright apple note necessary in the mix.
Sour - Pumps up the blueberry.
Koolada/Menthol - Cold, icy finish. Clears out the sinuses, even at this low % (yes it's low, I'd even hazard upping menthol to 2%, but that's just me being a fuckwit).
Sweetener - Nothing to say here. Pretty much add this to everything, ties in a sweetness to the other flavours that is vital (imo).
Mixed @ 40/60. Great as a S&V. I wont lie and say it's exact or anything, but it hits the same satisfying notes of the original with some different intricacies. The OG has anise of some sort, and no raspberry. However this will do me fine until VE makes some one shots 👌
Sweet creamy raspberry inhale that carries over to a bubblegum exhale
Growing up as a kid in the 80s, my favorite gum was raspberry "Bubblicious" bubblegum. This is my attempt to recreate this taste from memory, considering this flavor has been discontinued for over 20 years....damn I'm old lol.
Good as a shake and vape and really comes together after a 24 steep.
Feel free to tweek and any feedback would be appreciated.
