A profile I've been working on since I started DIYing . . . blueberry oatmeal cookie. This has a lot of layering trying to get to that oatmeal cookie, and this is as close as I've come to hitting it.

The blueberry itself is a combo of FW Blueberry, WF Blueberry Jam, and FLV Jammy Berry . . . going for that close to cooked, jammed-up blueberry rather than ripe blueberry.

The cookie is the real beast here. The star of the show being, in my opinion, JF Cookie V2. It is, hands down, my favorite cookie. There are a lot of other moving parts here layered atop one another trying to reach oatmeal cookie heaven. 0.25% FLV Granola still shines through without dominating the mix like a higher percentage would . . . that stuff is a bully in a mix.

I know these overly-complex recipes are not everyone's cup of tea . . . but this has been such a long-sought-after pursuit. I felt compelled to share it. If you mix it, I hope you enjoy it!

Okay so i know % is high on smaks da frog but this concentrate is sorta weak and i wanted to show case the flavor , it’s more like a one shot than a normal concentrate . So having that said , i wanted to make a Honey snacks cereal bar . They don’t actually make these but if you ever had a cinnamon toast crunch cereal bar then you know they are bomb as fuck! It’s basically a bar of cereal that’s all stuck together with a thick hard cream either at the bottom of the bar or sometimes it sits in the middle kind of like a cookie cereal bar sandwich is the best i could describe it . so the cream cheese icing by LA and vanilla cream extra by WF make the creamy goodness . The graham cracker clear by TPA and the Coolie by FA give it some texture and give the whole recipe some support . I also use FW sweetener because it’s not as sweet as super sweet and i didn’t want to make it too sweet, i think this sweetener is best to use but you can use any sweetener i’m sure . So enjoy !

Based on a talk by fresh03 on a live stream, he said that a pineapple uoside down cake is hard to nail down because there isn‘t a cooked pineapple flavour on the market.
I found solube arome tarte tain to have this cooked flavor and with the help of flavor monks pineapple (has the least amount of candy taste) it seems to work fine.
I pushed the cake note with the help of rf deep fried sponge cake and i am happy with it

Hey, this is the recipe release for a discontinued one shot at Chef's Flavours in the heartrendingly beautiful EJuiceMakers line. Shoutout to Chef's and everyone who picked this one up.

The original description was: "Chewy candy with a classic blend of cherry, strawberry, orange, and lemon. Stellar and explosive." What I couldn't say was that this is a starburst recipe. But like all the starbursts at once. Whatever. It was a good recipe.

I figured it probably needed some actual development notes, so here goes...

I had been playing around with the platonic concept of "the starburst" for a long ass time. And I thought I was making some headway. I had originally posted a simplified version of this recipe as BURST. The key part of the recipe, for me at least, was trying to nail down the texture. And I feel like we mostly got there.

The Base

This base wouldn't have been possible without guidance/wholesale theft. Kopel originally put me on to the Vanilla Swirl as a taffy base idea, and yeah, it works. Most taffy has a background vanilla, and a vanilla swirl has this weird waxy, thick texture to it. I remember going through revisions and nailing down 2.5% as the amount of vanilla swirl you could add without the maltol in the flavor muting everything to shit. Marshmallow is added to further bring up that chewy, waxy texture. TPA Marshmallow is another flavor that mutes, so .5% is about as high as I could stomach for the integrity of the mix. The Greek Yogurt was ripped off from Steam's appermelon gummy recipe. I still don't 100% understand why it works, but a touch of FLV Greek Yogurt really does add to the chew of a recipe, and the butyric notes steep out really, really quick.

Those three flavors together make for a hell of a chewy candy base when slammed up against big, bright fruit flavors.

The Fruit

A traditional american starburst mix is cherry, strawberry, orange and lemon. FW Starburst Type (or Star Candy or whatever non trademark infringing name they are selling this under this week) has a pretty damn accurate starburst orange and lemon vibe. I don't get any strawberry or cherry from it, but the citrus parts are bold, bright, and sweet with a pretty intense bite. The muting properties of the base soak up some of the bite, but I think it still gets the point across. TPA Strawberry isn't the best strawberry for the job here, but it does work. I needed a big, pink candy strawberry with some softer edges. JF Sweet Strawberry at 3% works better. Maybe use that one if you have it, but the TPA still delivers.

...AND THE CHERRY. You can hack together three cherry-ish flavors for something that doesn't taste like gasoline and almost looks like a cherry in the right light. Or you can just use TPA Cherry Extract if you can deal with a weak, candied cherry flavor that isn't garbage. It's weak though! And it has some water in it! So you'll never get a bold, vibrant cherry out of it, but it works as a complement and that's all I needed here.

This only has .5% of FW Sweetener in there. Feel free to sub in CAP SS. The recipe works with it. I think this was from a transitional period before I fully embraced sweetener for candy-type vapes. If I had to do it all over again I'd probably switch to SS at .5% or FW Sweetener at like 2%.

So, this is my best attempt at a normal-ass starburst recipe. I liked it. Steeping with this recipe is a bit tricky though. I think it needs at least a week for everything to settle down and thicken. And I think it gets too muted after 3-4 weeks. So it's definitely not perfect, but it's the closest I've tasted to a mouthful of classic starbursts.

Hey, this is the recipe release for a discontinued one shot at Chef's Flavours in the heartrendingly beautiful EJuiceMakers line. Shoutout to Chef's and everyone who picked this one up.

The original description was: "Stir it up with a sweet, juicy blend of blackcurrant and licorice."

I figured it probably needed some actual development notes, so here goes...

You know those "euro" style juices in the vein of heisenberg or whatever? Very sweet, very heavy on licorice or aniseed notes, and absurdly cold? I think they are fun, but they are also absolutely exhausting.

I think it's mostly a balance issue. With the intensity of those aniseed flavors and the heavy cooling they really have to punch through the flavor which requires bigger flavors which requires more sweetener etc... It's like this really weird intense feedback loop of flavor and contrast.

My design brief going into this was "like heisenberg, but for sane people." Judging by sales I didn't really accomplish that but I had a lot of fun and I'm still a fan of this recipe.

Also, Chef's is about the only place I'd risk putting out something with licorice. Licorice is great and anyone who doesn't like that flavor is a coward. Fight me.

The way I figure it, this recipe has four main components:

The "Blackcurrant"

There is a whole lot of creative license here in calling this a blackcurrant flavor. It's mostly a blackcurrant-ish fruit built to work with licorice and cooling.

The base of the currant-esque abomination here is FA Blackcurrant. While not particularly realistic, it's the de facto standard for a "blackcurrant" in vaping. And it's a good standard! It's big, deep and sweet. The flavor leans more toward a swedish fish-esque lingonberry/raspberry/red currant or whatever, but it has that fuller, gelatinous mouthfeel that I needed to stand up to the thinning inherent with WS-23. 2% is a lot, I guess? I think it works well here in context and helps to build a solid foundation for the fruit.

The other fruits here serve to fill out the blackcurrant. FLV Boysenberry is some sort of interesting berry candy flavor that further pushed that full, sweet blackcurrant. CAP Fuji Apple is a fairly soft, juicy flavor that doesn't carry a ton of baggage. It's almost like a sweeter, less funky INW Cactus or a softer FA Pear. It's mostly here to blend into the background and add a pretty solid juiciness to that full, sweet candy blackcurrant. It's at 5%, but I feel like that is about where it starts to get noticeably juicy. It can mute a bit, but everything around it is a bit intense. Whatever. I think it works. CAP 27 Fish is yet more sticky and sweet fuel for the flavor inferno here. The 2.5% is a bit arbitrary and it could be pushed up to around 4%, but I really wanted to hit an even 15% overall for the mix because I'm a sellout and round numbers are cool.

The Licorice

Hey, it's FW Black Licorice. It's the thing that makes this cloudy AF off a shake. I love FW Black Licorice. I think it's a bit warm and dark, but it has a really nice, sweet body to it that provides an interesting contrast with the cooling while helping the recipe cohere up against the WS-23. At 3%, I don't feel like it's particularly overwhelming but it comes through cleanly and acts as a nice counterpoint for that big, sticky, wet blackcurrant flavor. The goal wasn't really to kick someone in the head with aniseed, but serve up an accent for the more central fruit.

The Coolant

I mean, WS-23 is a pretty good coolant. And I use it here. It's not overbearing at .5%, and works more to complement the recipe without absolutely blowing everything out. For me, WS-23 has this weird side effect of making all the flavor around it seem wispy and a bit flat. The rest of the recipe was essentially built to take as much mouthfeel and saturation as possible so it could still stand up to the ws-23 without a huge, huge amount of sweetener.

The Sweetener

Yeah, there is some sucralose in here. I'd argue that it's not a ton, but I do think it makes the recipe better. It's the final thing giving that fruit flavor a nudge into vibrancy. I tend to prefer FW Sweetener but you could easily just use your damn CAP Super Sweet at like .5%. You could make this without sweetener, but the sucralose crutch helps, yo.

And that's the recipe. It really doesn't "need" to steep. It settles a bit after an overnight, but it works fine as a shake and vape.

Also, the name is from Ckemist. I think I was sort of half jokingly threatening to call it something super weird like "Black as your Heart" but I am objectively absurd and he corrected me.

RIP Phife Dawg.

♫♫ Substitutions ♫♫

 

After this post people seemed to think I actually love @ID10-T but truth be told, I just wanted to torture him. That task is made significantly more difficult by the fact that he's a masochist. So, without further adieu, I present my second attempt at torturing @ID10-T where I not only substitute both blueberries in his iconic recipe but every other flavor, as well.

Bonus: I'll add notes later, I'm a too busy at the moment.

If you don't have a flavor, just sub in whatever. It doesn't matter.

This started off as my attempt to clone NOMS X2 Cactus Jackfruit Mandarin. Ended up tasting pretty good after a few days steep, but after a week or 2 of sitting it's absolutely delicious. The profile is spot on to the NOMS X2. Better in my opinion as it's not overtly sweet. Raise or lower sucralose to your liking and enjoy!

If you like loops and ice cream, this will get you there. Enjoy.

a simple 4 ingredients cheesecake flan type dessert .
lower the sweetener or bump it up to your liking.
give this baby a week or so to settle the yes we a bit down.
hope you enjoy and mix it.
Feedback is highly expected
