WELL FUCK ME SIDEWAYS. I revisited this bullshit after over a year of not mixing it due to not having the needed flavours. Well I finally restocked and picked up a few new ideas for Drunken Pears Revisited. I was super worried that maybe the original wasn't going to be as good as I remember simply because I came up with this recipe when I had very little idea of what the fuck I was doing with my mixes. However, that first vape on this recipe was a reminder why I loved this shit so fucking much back in the day. It's tart, bright, and full of flavour on the inhale, but that back end has all the boozy throat hit, creamy bakery notes, and dark sugar that you're looking for. So lets dive into what I changed, because there's quite a bit.
Back when I first came up with this idea, I felt like I needed so much to make it work. There was Torrone, Joy, Vanilla Swirl, vanilla bourbon, FA Fuji, and two different whiskey flavours. It was a fucking mess. Shit that so obviously doesn't need to be in there. So I pulled out all of that shit and focused on amplifying the base flavours and letting things play off of each other. The removal of FA Fuji allowed me to focus more on refining the pear without the crutch that is Fuji. Adding in just a touch of TPA Pear gave so much more authenticity to the fruit, as TPA's pear option has a lot more of that earthy and sort of browned pear note, while FA Pear adds that brightness and tart flavour. Adding in HS French Vanilla Ice Cream was the best fucking decision I could have made. This allowed me to remove the Vanilla Swirl, while still adding SO much more flavour to the TFA VBIC. Honestly, I don't know what the fuck I was thinking by adding Torrone and Joy in the first iterations, because those flavours just do not work in this recipe, whereas CAP CDS, on it's own, does everything I need. Finally, the TPA Toasted Marshmallow and Brown Sugar to add that baked note. These two just work together so beautifully here.
Great as a shake and vape, but give it a week or so and the pears will calm down, the ice cream will get super fucking dense, the bourbon flavour will shine a bit more, and those bakery notes will flesh out so much better.
This recipe has always been my signature recipe, I feel. Every mixer seems to have one. And this new, revisited version just reiterates why I loved it so much in the beginning. Except now, I came at it with over a year of added knowledge about flavours and mixing, and now it's better than I could have ever imagined. Big shouts to Vurve for constantly suggesting I pick up HS FVIC, and huge ups to Rageisalotofwork for giving me the idea to add TPA Toasted Marshmallow to accentuate the brown sugar notes.
Mix this shit, yo.
I am very proud of this recipe I think it turned out great. This is an Apple cinnamon Danish with a gooey Apple center and icing on top. This recipe is good immediately but gets better and better every day after I would say it is at its best after around 6 days but it is definitely vapable after a good shake. Let me know what you think.
Rice Pudding with Cinnamon
This took me a long time and has been my current white whale. I've tried a lot of different flavorings and combinations and have finally settled on what will be my final version of this recipe. I'm not fully convinced its 100% accurate but I think I've come as close as I can to realizing the pudding in rice pudding. Nailing the rice itself would have been very hard as it is very much a texture and not so much a flavor but nonetheless here it finally is. Puddin'
CAP Horchata: I tried three different Horchata flavorings in trying to find what works and for me TFA Horchata Smooth was way to overpowering with the cinnamon. CAP Horchata is a good flavor to use since it has the rice milk note that I need to convey rice pudding. This one is more of the milk and less of the rice but it works here in conjunction with FW Horchata
FW Horchata: This Horchata flavoring to me has a bit more of that rice itself which I found weird but combining it with CAP Horchata gives me the base to work with for rice pudding.
CAP Vanilla Custard v1: I needed something to help make this more of a heavier vape and CAP Vanilla Custard does just that while adding in good creaminess and vanilla that I associate with Rice Pudding
INW Shisha Vanilla: By far my favorite Vanilla flavoring and here it helps boost the vanilla in the recipe.
JF Bavarian Cream: I wanted some more creaminess and JF Bavarian Cream is a really good flavor to use to help meld all the creams together as well as add just a bit more body
FA Meringue: I wanted to try to add some sweetness to this recipe and also add a bit of a light cream on top and this helps with that
CAP Vanilla Whipped Cream: Like in Don't Panic, I love the combo of CAP Vanilla Whipped Cream and FA Meringue as they really work well together so this helps add to that light cream.
CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl: I wanted some cinnamon in this recipe and TFA Horchata Smooth was just not doing it for me in adding the cinnamon. I admit I was hesistant to use CDS since the first BB competition but have been using it a bit more lately. This helps give a cinnamon flavor and also helps boost a bit of grain which helps convey the Rice Pudding profile.
TFA Toasted Marshmallow: This is here to add some more sweetness and helps meld the creams further together as this is a pretty heavy cream based recipe.
TFA Sweetener: I know. I am usually not a fan adding in sweetener into my recipes. Maybe it's pride or maybe its something else. Maybe the hype juice with 5% sweetener has made me weary of sweetener in general but this recipe without it just wasn't sweet enough. It just wasn't giving me that pudding sweetness that I know and love. At first I tried 1% and it was TOO sweet. But at 0.5% it gives the recipe just enough sweetness to emulate pudding without stealing the spotlight from the recipe itself.
With everything in this, I recommend a two week steep. Its pretty tasty after a week though if you are impatient like me :D. I mix mine at 80vg/20pg but feel free to let me know if you mix it at any other ratio and how it comes out. I would love to hear feedback since this has been in the works for at least like four months now which is longer than any other recipe I've worked on. <3 <3 <3
The cinnamon is pretty light, probably needs a drop of Rich Cinnamon in there to really bring it to life. This is still a huge WIP. It's supposed to be a cream cheese filled Churro. The TPA Butter was to add a bit of grease to the Churro, brown sugar to smooth out rough edges and add some sweetness along with the meringue. The French vanilla to add some creaminess to the cream cheese icing, and of course funnel cake and CDS are the churro. I would rather not bump up CDS, but I like where it's at for now, but will still adjust it to taste. It's pretty tasty but nowhere near completed. I still need a deep friedness to it and it's been hard to find it.
A classic combination - apples, cinnamon in fried pastry form.
FA zeppola/FA wOw/FA joy- this is your fried doughnut base, some people get a red filling taste from wow but the cinnamon does a good job hiding it, it adds more volume to zeppola. FA joy adds just a bit of a yeast component found in donuts.
FA Fuji/TFA dragon fruit/FA liquid amber- Fuji was an easy choice since I needed a bolder apple to stand up to the cinnamon. I got the idea of adding dragon fruit from returnity on Reddit, it brings out the juicy tartness of the apple and also helps blend the apple and cinnamon. Liquid amber "softens" the apples to cooked perfection.
CAP cinnamon danish swirl/FW cinnamon roll- both have a nice cinnamon punch but also have some pastry notes to add overall.
LA cream cheese icing/FA meringue- these combined give the thick icing on top of the fritter.
Give this a week to come together.
I felt the "Cuttwood leak" base would be better suited for a Graham/cinnamon flavor profile. This one goes great with a cup of coffee in the morning!
Some people like this one with a bit more CDS, let your tastebuds guide you.
This is not a Sugar Bear clone and probably doesn't taste anything like it. I apologize for picking a similar name.
This is a clone of Adirondack Vapor's Sagamore. This was my intro to Tobacco vapes. I was hesitant to try but it's so rich, creamy, and delicious. Not overly sweet.
From their description:
"An RY4 (Vanilla, Caramel, Tobacco) shines in Sagamore, but is followed up with notes of bakery cinnamon, and a bit of cake and cream to give you a satisfying, full flavored experience."
TFA RY4: Obvious choice here. Delicious vanilla-y creamy tobacco.
TFA VBIC: This flavor is so versatile and delicious. It was pretty well detectable in Sagamore to me.
CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl: A solid bakery cinnamon pastry. Fits well in this flavor profile and seemed to me to be the exact cinnamon note used.
TFA Vanilla Cupcake: This was my last addition that really brought the recipe together. The picture and description really clued me in that there was some sort of cake ingredient, and after trying a few others, this was the closest. It's possible they use FW Yellow Cake but I know that's a no-no in DIY for many.
CAP Sugar Cookie: For that unmistakeably awesome mouthfeel and bakery richness that it brings.
FW Butterscotch Ripple: This one just adds to the depth of the RY4 and compliments and accentuates the Caramel.
FA Soho: In my first iterations I found RY4 not to deliver enough of a tobacco note, and boosting it with a comparable counterpart did it some good.
CAP Butter Cream: Adirondack juices are all so rich and creamy, and this really brought it all together with that wonderful aftertaste in the mouth of sweet buttery cream.

This is my take on Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Its pretty god damn good. Lots of stuff in it. Some cinnamons. Some crunches. Other things too.
I've been forcing people to try different versions of this recipe for the last month and this is by far the best and most authentic. A sharp cereal with a touch of milk, works as a Shake and Vape but really forms after two or three days. I recommend it to everyone.
