I've been making my own juice for about six months now and with all the great recipes out there and my own admitted laziness I just never spent all that much time making my own recipes for juices. Tried some 1-2-3 recipes and a lot of them were okay, but it always just made more sense to head on over to popular and make something that I knew would be good. My girlfriend however has been hounding me for a caramel apple vape juice for awhile now and I thought it would be nice to try and make something for her.
I've made enough of other people's recipes to have a pretty basic understanding of some flavors. I went off of that mostly and my own nose. I wanted the apples to have a little bit of a spice note and for that thought cinnamon apple danish would be a good choice. I started out with it at 2%, but the cinnamon was too prevalent and I wanted it as more of a background note so I dropped the percentage down a bit. At 1% it's noticeable, but doesn't overpower anything else in the mix.
Of all the apples, I prefer double apple. Just taste juicy and delicious and is more of a non discriminate apple flavoring. Fuji is my jam too, so I chose that just to add some extra crisp juiciness to the apple profile.
I'm not a huge fan of FA caramel, but I thought I could push it a bit and add some FLV cream to offset some of the offnotes of it while adding a dash of nice creaminess to it as well. I added Ry4 double to help with the caramel notes as well. I think it has more of a traditional caramel flavor and that, with the caramel and the cream are my nice caramel coating.
Off the shake I'm really surprised and happy with it. It fucking taste like a caramel apple. The cream does a good job of adding some depth and mouthfeel to the flavor which makes the experience more authentic. If you mix this up I hope you enjoy it. This is my first recipe and after this, I think I'll try and make some more. it's kinda fun.
This is my take on the classic Austrian dessert. Cinnamon and rum infused apples baked in a dough. The recipe was inspired by Cinapple Fritter [DIYorDIE].
When vaped it gives a warm apple and cinnamon taste with a hint of a buttery dough at the background.
Try adding 2-3% (CAP) Double Apple for more intense apple flavour.
(Nik's Deadly Sin) This recipe isn't mine by any means it can be found around the interwebs somewhere in different variations. (This is the one that works for me) I believe this version may have came from Reddit... 🤔 It's been so long since I came across it that I forget... I've went and subbed TPA RY4D instead of FA RY4... I ran out of FA and I think that TPA overall fits the (dessert/bakery/tobacco) profile better anyhow... Its a tried and true version of Deadly Sin, I've mixed it for my wife many, many, many times! Hope you will enjoy it as well! 👊😁
This has been a very fun recipe to work on, trying to nail down which flavors that would make this authentic, but also translate well in to a vape recipe.
The first thing that had to be done was get the crepe/pancake right. WF Crepe SC was a given choice here, as it has that light and soft dough note, everything you want from a pancake/crepe flavor. By itself it is a bit too light though, especially when you’re throwing a lot of other powerful flavors on top.
I know that @foment_life used CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl in combination with WF SC Crepe in his Breakfast of the Gods recipe, something which is perfect here – as the Crepe needs a bit more dough to stand out, and we also need that cinnamon spice for the filling.
I did experiment a bit with other combinations such as LB Belgian Waffle (which also has a slight cinnamon note), and FLV Rich Cinnamon, but I found none of them to be as good as the WF Crepe/CAP CDS combo, as the cinnamon note should be “just there” to make it as authentic as possible. CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl v2 can be used as sub for the v1, I have tried with both and I honestly don't taste any significant difference.
Next up was trying to find a good flavor to replicate the palm sugar syrup, which is used both for the filling and garnish. WF SC Molasses turned out to be the best choice here, I’m not 100% convinced it’s the most authentic, but it is however by far the most yummy, as it has that brown sugar note that plays great with the coconut. The other flavor I experimented with was VT Golden Syrup, but the caramel note in there makes the recipe way too sweet to enjoy for longer periods of time. I wouldn't recommend trying to sub the molasses, it's very unique, especially how it interacts with the sweet coconut notes.
Third, the coconut BOMB. Look at the picture and you’ll see how coconut heavy this recipe is. The whole filling is just heaps and heaps of grated coconut, so the coconut needs to be a very good tasting main note, and also have a great body to it. This has been by far the toughest part of the recipe, as the very flaky texture is hard to achieve, so you just have to settle for how yummy they are.
My conclusion of this is that you can actually use 2 different combinations, but there is 1 flavor that has to be in there no matter what – FLV Coconut. It’s the only flavor that really has that thick (almost) grated coconut feel to it. It’s extremely potent, so use it with caution. DO NOT KNUCKLE TEST THIS FLAVOR!!!!
The second flavor that I landed on is FA Coconut, I think it also has some of the same qualities as FLV Coconut, it’s a bit flakey but also brings some of a milky note. Together they make a great thick and very yummy coconut flavor.
The third flavor that can be used as a sub for FA Coconut is FLV Sweet Coconut. This is by no means a bad sub at all, and I think some people might even prefer it. I don’t though, because I don’t think it has the same body, so not as authentic. I’d recommend using FLV Sweet Coconut at 1.5% if you plan on subbing.
VT Dessicated Coconut could maybe also be an option for the cocobomb, I'm not sure it would taste better, but maybe more authentic. It is was out of stock on Chefs so no way for me to get it just yet.
Last, I’d say the lime could be left out, but I feel it does precisely the same job as the lime in the real dish – by adding a strong contrasting note it elevates the other flavors. I also think it makes for a much more pleasant vape, as the other flavors can become a bit boring in the longer run. VT Shisha Lime was the best choice as it doesn’t water down the other flavors as much as other limes.
I did also experiment a lot with different dragon fruits, as it’s a common topping to use. I did however realize that I had to scrap that idea, as there was just no way to make this possible as it’s such a “weak” flavor.
So this recipe was inspired immediately after smelling Country Apple (PUR) for the first time. It is just a perfect baked apple with plenty of sweet caramel goodness. After months of development I am finally satisfied with this recipe. To me it represents the profile very well. Mix and Enjoy!
P.S. I have a string of Ice Cream recipes that I am nearly finished with so look out for those if you're a fan of those profiles.
County Apple (PUR): The star of the show! This is without a doubt my favorite apple flavor and it is the perfect fit for this profile. At 3% it is perfectly incorporated throughout the whole vape. Pairs perfectly with Cinnamon Danish Swirl to give it an apple pie profile.
Cinnamon Danish Swirl (CAP): This flavor is used to give this recipe it's apple pie character. Works well with Country Apple and gives it some spice & caramel notes.
Cookie (FA): Gives this a sort of pie crumble taste. Lacks the texture I was looking for. I'll have to revisit that later.
Vanilla Bean Ice Cream (TFA): The main Ice Cream flavor for this recipe. Everyone loves VBIC and now I understand why. Though I do find some off-notes with it at high percentages.
Vanilla Ice Cream (LB): Used in conjunction with VBIC (TFA) to give it more creamy texture.
French Vanilla Icecream (HS): Adds just a bit more cream and just enough butter to enhance the apple pie.
WS-23: Cooling agent. Feel free to leave out if you prefer.
My remix of ID10-T's Simple Sugar Cookie
Lowered the percentages a bit of the CAP VC and SC from the original and added a bit of cinnamon and some of that awesome TFA Banana Nut Bread to make a Banana Sugar Cookie that falls somewhere between an original sugar cookie and a banana arrowroot biscuit
Nice off the shake but fills out more after a week or 2
