Flavor Profile: candy fruit
Used in 221 recipes at an average of 4.742%.
7 months, over 50 recipe' s made, hundreds of single flavor testing. This is the only juice my hubby will vape. He said he would only vape it if it was spot on. None of the remixes out there are even close. To my surprise chubby bubble doesn't have any bubble gum flavoring in it. I believe the boysenberry gives it a bubblegum feel.
I realized after single flavor testing, chubby is made with FW flavors.
Fw Blue razz- kind of an unusual blue razz flavor to me very difficult to describe. More of a bright sweet raspberry with a very candy feel.
Fw Cotton candy- self explanatory. Adds sweetness from within.
FW raspberry- this raspberry has slight floral notes. It is more of a candy raspberry flavor bright but not sweet.
FW Boysenberry- I believe this adds a boost to the raspberry while adding a berry bubble gum flavor.
If you don't like sweetner don't add it. This is a remix of a commercial juice so guess what lots of sweetner.
I've been working on this recipe for the last month and a half, I feel it's really close to the original and delicious as it is. I used fw blue raspberry because I know it's definitely in the original, I used the harvest berry to tone down the blue raspberry and add a BlackBerry type of note. The citrus punch I thought was the best citrus for this type of recipe as I was looking for a light citrus note not something thats gonna dominate the mix. And finally cap super sweet was definitely needed in this mix to give that commercial type taste and it brings everything together, without the sweetener this recipe wouldn't work. This is the type of recipe that tastes better and better as it steeps, when the mix turns a light yellow thats when its ready.
SHAKE AND VAPE APPROVED
If I am struck with blindness later in life, and had to describe what blue tasted like? This is what it tastes like to me. This is just your simple Blue Jelly Candy recipe, that is not so flavor excessive percentage wise, and is a quick and ready shake and vape for someone on the go.
FLV Boysenberry - This is one of my personal favorites out of my repertoire to use in mixing. It can be used in simple recipes, it can be used in complex recipes. In this one, it's the main squeeze, and this is mainly what you'll be tasting.
FW Blue Raspberry - Including myself, a lot of DIY mixers aren't too fond of this flavor, and I have struggled using this as main profiles, and in other mixes in general. But I used this one as more of an enhancer with the Boysenberry, and it works rather well in my opinion at the 1% that it's set at.
CAP Jelly Candy - Another one of my personal favorites to use in my collection, CAP's Jelly Candy provides a gummy flavor, that brightens alot of fruits in recipes, and doesn't take away from your main fruit profiles. I wouldn't go any higher than 2.5%
RF Sour Gummy - Well, I don't have RF Sour Gummy in particular, I have the repackaged RF, North West Sour Gummy, that is VG based. I've used this flavor mainly like how others use TFA's Marshmallow as more of a mouth feel, and to give the flavor more girth. If you have RF Sour Gummy, I would probably do half the percentage of my North West percentage since RF's PG liquid should be more potent.
FA Kiwi - I used Kiwi in this, just to add more brightness, and to give it more of a summer feel to the profile. Probably wouldn't use this any higher than 1%, unless you have a different profile you want to achieve
CAP Super Sweet - I used 3 drops per 15ml of Super Sweet because well, this is a candy recipe. So it only makes sense. But could get away without using Sweetener if that isn't up your alley
SHAKE AND VAPE APPROVED
This is a Black Axis product that I discovered when I first started vaping. It was a juice to me, that I wanted to keep vaping over and over, and was the first juice I wanted to try to clone when my brother and I first started making juices. And this recipe is my very first recipe I am putting out for display, so here we go!
This is my 13th version that I have made of this recipe, and I am open to any suggestions on what could be done different if you have experienced this flavor as well. This recipe is what I would consider about 90% accurate to the real thing, however I think so far it's very enjoyable if you need something to quick mix up that's sweet and flavorful.
INW Shisha Strawberry - This was a flavor I recently added to the mix out of pure curiousity. I was previously using TFA's Strawberry Ripe from 3-4%, but was finding out that the strawberry was too authentic to what the real version calls for. I tried TFA's Strawberry, and CAP's Strawberry sweet in combinations, and by themselves. And just wasn't digging it. So I dropped the concepts about 10 mixes in. To me, the mix required more of a mixture of both authentic and artificial flavor at the same time, and Shisha Strawberry did a great job at standing out on all levels, even being at 3%. If your curious, this would be one of the first things to mess with if you have any free time.
FW Blackberry and FW Blue Raspberry combo - So the 2nd main ingredient in the Berry Voodoo recipe is FW's Blackberry. Now I used Blackberry because this was a flavoring to me, that was able to blend in very well with not only the Shisha Strawberry, (adding enough authenticity to make it like a fruity smoothie), but with the Blue Raspberry that I'm going to mention in a moment. I used to have this a little higher than 2.75%, but doing side by side comparisons was showing that 3.5% was too much blackberry, and needed to be toned down.
Now here's where the Blue Raspberry comes in. I used the blue raspberry to act as an enhancer with mainly the Blackberry, and at 1.5%, it doesn't take away from the Blackberry and Shisha Strawberry main profile. I felt like blue raspberry was involved because of doing some smelling tests with the flavorings and the product. And with vaping the authentic version, I felt like there was another fruit involved in there more like an accent, and played a minor role in the mix. And to me, this flavoring worked just the way I intended it to.
TFA Marshmallow - TFA Marshmallow is the body to this recipe. The marshmallow fills a lot of the void that the fruits are missing out on in this recipe. I started out using more marshmallow previously, and was finding out that it was muting the overall profile, and was hiding the Blackberry/Blue Raspberry combo. But I still needed it at a decent percentage, and figured out that 4% was a solid contender for what I was looking for. I even tried using other marshmallows like FA's, and CAP's Marshmallow, but was not happy with the results. FA's wasn't quite filling the void like I was expecting, and CAP's was just too sugary feeling, and was muting the whole mix. So by default, TFA's Marshmallow was the way to go.
DX Banana Cream and Meringue combo - Now with this being a smoothie, my first intention was to start with TFA's Vanilla Bean Ice Cream, and CAP's Vanilla Custard, a typical smoothie combo from what I've seen around. But the thing that I noticed with the real product, was that it was more of a shake and vape, and was rather tasty right out the gate. The Vanilla Bean Ice Cream and Vanilla Custard combo is a combo that usually requires a decent steep, so I started thinking elsewhere. Granted, this may be a plausible combo still. TPA's DX Banana Cream came into play when I messed around with previous ideas on other recipes, and realized that it's a rather good shake and vape flavor when added. I had LA's Banana Cream at my disposal, but figured out that it was too "banana-y", and just threw everything off. The Banana Cream acted as, what I would like to call, "the smoothie effect" in that it gave the dimension of cream that I was aiming for with this clone. I wouldn't go any higher than 2%, or you may start getting more banana flavor than what you need.
Now FA's Meringue is pretty much a required flavoring to acquire a creamy, yet sweetening, flavor that doesn't need time to steep much. It's pretty self-explanatory on what this flavoring does in the mix since it's in just about half of every recipe that's out there. Blends in well with the Banana Cream and the Marshmallow, and helps die down the Banana Cream in the mix from what I experience.
-CAP Super Sweet - I fought, and I fought, and I fought, and I fought some more on using sweetener in this mix. Tried many variations, just weren't cutting it. But if you want the real thing, you HAVE to have sweetener in this. I would not add anymore than a couple drops depending on the sweetener you have.
As mentioned in my initial description, I'm open to all suggestions and ideas surrounding this clone. I just want to be able to achieve creating a 1:1 clone, and not have to spend the extra money. And to overall, gain more knowledge and views from other people since I would still consider myself, a novice, in this field.
