This is a pear-cactus that is less disturbing than Grack but it is as delightful. Little bit sweeter.
I really can't say more about what it is 'supposed to taste like.' It is an experience unto itself - just sweeter than grack.
Dewy-Granate is a fresh and IMO realistic tasting mix of honeydew melon and pomegranate. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
FA's Pomegranate is my favorite pomegranate flavor, because it is so close to the actual fruit. It's both sweet and tart and has a hint of bitterness, like the original fruit. It is not so easy to blend in fruit mixes, because it easily overwhelms a lot of other fruits. But I found it works pretty good in this mix.
INW Melon & CAP Cantaloupe
The combination of these two melon flavors gave the best result for a realistic honeydew melon flavor. INW Melon is a bit strong, so I used it at a low percentage. It has the tendency to be a bit "throaty" in the fresh mix, which goes away after a few days of steep.
Notes: mixed at 80/30 (VG/PG). Steep: minimum steep over night, best after 2-4 days.
It's a remix of Drippy HubbaHubba – creamy, soft, soluble gum with a watermelon, strawberry, kiwi and banana - similar to hubba bubba.
Watermelon is playing on front with a strawberry and kiwi just a tad behind it. Banana is a background flavor here but brings a little bit of creaminess with vanilla swirl and meringue, which is here also for sweeteness. FAs Marshmallow is a blender in this case and helps watermelon candy become a actual gum. Enjoy!
So, the basic profile is honeydew/pear with a touch of strawberry. I felt it needed some additions.
I added the honeysuckle, I am not sure why really. I was vaping it and thought damn man, honeysuckle would be perfect here.... So, there it is. At 2% it is there enough to shine through and even complement the other flavors in the profile. Earthy Sweet and slightly floral, but not overbearingly at this percentage.

Pear, I am using TPA here, mostly because I have a lot of it :) There are other pears, better pears, less overpowering, sweeter, etc. This was more of a convenience thing for me. It works, sweetens and does everything it is supposed to while bring a good solid pear note to the mix. A mix of INW Pear and FA Pear would maybe be a little nicer, if there was less going on in this recipe.
Cantaloupe/Honeydew... My longest running favorite melons are TFA Honeydew and LA Watermelon. This was not a place for watermelon. TFA Honeydew needs a little help to flesh it out a little bit, this is where Cantaloupe comes in. I did at one time use TFA Cantaloupe for this but then CAP came along with theirs and it just blows the others out of the water. Anyways, perfect use of it here.
Strawberry, I thought about omitting this one all together and going for a darker berry profile but strawberry just works so well here. I am really liking either CAP Strawberry Sweet or JF Strawberry Sweet these days. Both suffer from muting over a few weeks, both are really sweet, syrupy and "bright" which is where TFA Strawberry comes in, it is a little more artificial tasting, but it can really boost and flesh out a strawberry in the right mix. Also, this may just be me but it seems to me to fix some of the muting that JF and CAP S Sweet as well as TFA Strawbery Ripe suffer from over a longer steep.
INW Cactus, why the hell cactus? WET, that's why, this profile screams mouth full of wet fruit and INW Cactus delivers on that. I have been playing around with the percentage on this also, maybe nice to shine through? Maybe nice to peek through? I kinda like it where it is, not enough to notice CACTUS but enough to be WET.
Sweetener... I try and use as little as possible. To be quite honest I do not put it in every batch. I also sometimes just use CAP Super Sweet in this, at about half or less of the 1% shown.
I've been working on this for quite some time now, the melon Starburst is my favorite flavor of they candy that they have out. Now I used cantaloupe instead of mango because mango just hits me hard. This can work as a shake and vape if your in a hurry bit it hits maximum potential at 1 week. The capella and TFA cantaloupe work really well together so that it's not to bitter or overpowering. The Bavarian Cream and VBIC really give it that creamy chewy flavor and mouth feel like a Starburst has, and the marshmallow helps so that you don't have to use too much sweetener and if preferred you can even cut down on the sweetener.
