A Celebration of INW Milk Choc OG - R.I.P. 2017
Chocolate Layer INW Milk Choc OG and FW Milk choc creates a fairly realistic milk choc base and I have added some vanillin to add a bit more body... and by fairly realistic I mean as close as the concentrates at our disposal and my efforts to create a realistic milk chocolate got me.
INW Milk Choc translates more to a homemade chocolate milk to me than the real thing, but apart from perhaps MF Chocolate, this is a good as it gets. FW Milk choc has a plastic-y quality to to that with quite a tame milk choc flavour, I am using the to bend the INW to a commercial milk choc texture... the result is far from fantastic but yeah what ever... I used vanillin... no idea what brand, so lets pretend it TFA :) and sweetener is kind of a must here.
Candy Shell I am using a combination of FW VBIC, FW Jawbreaker and FA oba oba to achieve this. I wont claim its fantastic but does translate loosely to a candy shell. I have added a drop or two of FA Meringue for good measure. I am not sure if it really made a difference here, but I like the recipe as is and with limited amounts of INW Milk choc left I am not going to start experimenting,
Gummi, gooey goodness
I used a simple combination of fw swedish and fa rose to create the almost non-descript floral jelly candy flavour.
yeah so that is it, I hope this is not too disappointing a recipe - Look its a pleasant profile and a fun vape and anyone who have worked with chocolates know the milk choc territory is pretty much undefeated - hope you enjoy
Jaws by Hold Fast was and still is a popular E-Liquid on the market today. Long story short, I have been tackling quote on quote clone recipes for a LONG time now. Mostly having the time working in the industry and having the privilege of working in a mixing lab for about 7 years. Now saying that, a good friend that I work with is just plain obssesed with this liquid (Watermelon Jawbreaker). So I decided to take a crack at it, with all this time being in a lab, why not right.
Starting off with what I thought was evident enough of being the main profile was FW Watermelon, and the second ingredient obviously FW Jawbreaker or now known as Jaw Breaking Candy. I've used FW Watermelon so many times and know the taste anytime it's in a recipe. This as everyone probably knows is damn strong, like needing to change the seals on your tank or rda strong. After playing around ALOT with this profile it would come close or maybe around 80-85% to the actual recipe, but their was just something missing that I could not figure out, until using FW Hard Candy..
I hit a road block that i simply couldn't get around like 100% of the time trying to take on a "clone". Most of the time when in stuck I'll just pick up flavors off the shelf and start to smell them and finger tasting. As soon as I picked up and wiped the dust off of FW Hard Candy, smelling and tasting...it hit me! Hard Candy has the same Watermelon in it that is FW Watermelon, but it also has it's own unique taste. So after scrapping FW Watermelon completely it automatically took the recipe to up about 90%...but.. yes the part where their is still just something missing...of course. Mind you at this point it's just a 2 flavor recipe, and the sweetener of course. Now, it was all about tweaking the recipe again and again and again. This time it was a little harder to try to figure out what was missing to make the recipe what it is. So adding some TFA Ethyl Maltol to the mix it really helped to "blend" the recipe and make it more copisthetic. Yet it was still quite not there. After some time with playing around with %s I decided to try cranking the flavors up a little higher then I normally would like, around 10%. Too much for The Hard Candy, but when I reversed it and jacked up the Jaw Breaker, it suddenly all came together. For some reason, JawBreaker at 10% just worked and changed into what it seems to have been missing. Why? I'm not sure, but it worked. Now for trying to get it where it needed to be I added .5% of TFA Ethyl Maltol and for me personally .75% of CAP Super Sweet is not too much or too little. Also, going any higher than .5% with the Ethyl Maltol seemed to make it a little harsh for whatever reason, so I would just leave it at .5%.
So, i do hope you all enjoy this recipe and I'll continue to try to tackle "clones" because i enjoy the challenge. I do really feel this recipe to me, is about 94-96% to the original. Taste is subjective again, but again i hope you all enjoy it! Cheers!🍻
So i think I've finished creating my grape candy stone, if you could call it that. It's just a very sweet candied artificial grape, which is what i was going for.
Then the bubblegum... Another pain in arse. Bubble gum concentrates are generally very dry and powdery, so a gain just the one wasn't enough. Fw jawbreaker really helps bring it all together.
I can't recommend or vouch for any substitutions in this recipe, as I've probably tried them all anyway.
If you like any kind of bubble gum, especially grape. You'll love this. Enjoy!

Smarties was one of the first profiles I went for when I first started mixing way back yonder. It's only fitting this is the first recipe I post. I used to mix sweettart at like 10% when I was Vaping out of cartomizers so needless to say my old mix needed a little tweaking. After reworking this thing for the past six months i think i've come up with a pretty good representation. I wanted to capture that chaulky ambiguous fruit flavor where you can't tell if the different colors are different flavors.
Sweet & Tart- It's called Sweetangy on ECX, idk how many names they've had for this flavor but its the sweet tart candy flavor from TPA. A little of this goes a long way for me. This is really more like a sweet tart than smarties but at lower percentages adds that fruit flavor that you just can't get anywhere else. This flavor is a little bitter though and doesn't provide much sweetness, hence the sucralose.
FW Jawbreaker- Seeing this flavor was what inspired me to take another stab at this recipe. i was so disappointed when i cracked it open and smelled nothing but fucking juicy fruit gum!!!! Well i did a test anyways and figured out it was really just the smell not the taste when vaping it and at low enough percentage the juicy fruit smell steeps off and you're left with a chaulky candy quality that works great with the sweet tart. This can work up to .5%, after that juicy fruit stays.
Almond- This was the other missing link. One thing i really like about Wayne's marshmallow cereal milk is it reminds me of the white candy cigs i used to blow through packs of as a kid. I couldn't isolate what flavor i was getting that from until i noticed it again in Krucial's butter almond custard. Fantastic recipe btw. This flavor works some kind of magic to blend the other ingredients and add depth and density but doesn't steal the show in any way.
Everything else is pretty much to smooth it out and add sweetness. I tried my best to make it work without sucralose but my other sweetening option weren't working out. You could try jacking up the ethyl maltol and sub out the FA marshmallow for TFA or use whatever sweetener you like. It is a candy recipe though so sugar that shit up.
