A rich dark berry cobbler with a dollop of vanilla ice cream.

This recipe is focusing on FW Wild Berry Cobbler. This one is actually pretty good as a single flavor. It's definitely a darker berry (blackberry?). The PUR Boysenberry Preserves compliments the blackberry nicely and drives home the cooked fruit note. The cobbler part is there but light, so I used some sugar cookie to add a bit of texture. My bottle doesn't say ala mode and I don't really pick up any ice cream, so I added my own. I wanted to keep this relatively simple. Play around with this or add whatever ice cream base works for you. The moral of the story is, if you don't have FW Wild Berry Cobbler, you should definitely consider buying it.

Assassin! This remix has pushed my skills to the limit. You would think a custard would be one of the easiest remixes to tackle, but this profile took over 40 batches to get right! Vapetasia's Killer Kustard has a certain sharpness or brightness that was very difficult to mimic. I have no idea what they use, but I think I've come about as close as I can without absolutely going insane trying to figure out what flavorings they use.

I want to give a big shout out to Wayne Walker for his insight on this profile. Although his thoughts on what goes into Killer Kustard is much different than my final version, he has been a huge help tackling this profile, thanks Wayne.

My first 20 or 30 batches were loosely based on Waynes public release of his Killa Kustard. And while it is very close, there seemed to be missing that "sharpness" or "Brightness" I mentioned earlier. I honestly used every conceivable combination of custards, creams, ice creams, and sweeteners that I could and created a shit-ton of really good custards, just not Killer Kustard.

One "break-through" I had was when I ordered DFS Holy Vanilla. I had been using INW Shisha Vanilla for that sharp vanilla note I was getting in the original, but it wasn't quite right. I heard Wayne say that he too got a "sharpness" from the original and thought by turning up his percentages, he might could get that sharpness. I normally don't use vanillas over say .5%, but DFS Holy vanilla can be cranked up, and that was the secret sauce that was needed.

Many mixers think that the custard used in the original is CAP Vanilla Custard V2 and while that may be the case, I found that CAP Vanilla Custard V1 worked better for me giving it a much deeper, eggier feel.

HS Italian Cream is there to give the mix and even deeper, rich note that most creams lack. At 1% it really adds character to the mix.

Last but not least, FW Sweetener. Many mixers say it's best to use EM in custards, and for the most part I agree that sweeteners like CAP SS is not the best for this particular profile. However, when I used TPA EM I got a muting that was taking away from the brightness I was going for and when paired with DFS Holy Vanilla, FW Sweetener was the best choice for this profile.

This recipe is very simple in it's structure, but it was not a simple recipe to try to clone/remix. I've done my best and anyone who loves Killer Kustard will, I'm sure, love this.

Steep time is a minimum of 1 week, 2 weeks is better for the CAP Vanilla Custard to shine. I mixed this at 70/30 VG/PG as that's what the original is mixed at.

I hope you will mix, comment, and or rate, it make us all better mixers. :)

🏷️ A buttery and rich peach cobbler with a island twist.

Top:
Juicy Peach and Apricot combine to make a bright, ripe nectar styled peach flavor. The lightly citrusy and soft peach-like Persimmon plays well with these two flavors, adding with it a complex tropical note.

Base:
Biscuit (INW) and Croissant combine to make a rich, and buttery crumble base. Biscuit (SilverLine) rounds out the base by enhancing the toasted bakery notes; while also adding a soft coconut finish to the crumbly crust.

Lastly, a touch of sweetener is added in order to complete sweet bakery profile.

Impropriety + Papaya + Tea

A refreshing iced tea with sweet papaya syrup.

SkiddlzNinja did it first. Check out his Tenacious T recipe. It was the inspiration for this though I haven't tried it yet; I just wanted to try a simpler mix of papaya and tea first. When I saw Tenacious T, the combination of TFA's Sweet Tea and Papaya looked like a stroke of genius, just imagining the way they'd taste together. But possibly a mild challenge to pull off, since one of those is a brutal bully that can easily get way too funky and the other is a shrinking violet. This is just a simple recipe that celebrates that combination.

I'm surprised there aren't more recipes using TFA Sweet Tea out there. Is my taster broken? As best I can tell, it does a fine job of emulating that sort of fast food drive thru sweet tea flavor. The only problem is that it's ridiculously weak in more ways than one. First, it takes about 6 or 7% of it to taste like much of anything at all. I could easily see needing 15% in a recipe. But at TFA prices, I'm not terribly worried about that. A bigger problem is that it can easily get almost completely obliterated in a mix. "I know I put a ton of Sweet Tea in here, where'd it go?" Accoutrements must be added carefully .

TFA Papaya is the opposite, much stronger in concentration than most TFA flavors and prone to pushing other flavors around. And getting violently FUNKY. Just like a real, ripe, papaya. Careful not to spill it on anything. Papaya for weeks if you do. Starting at 1% and working up 0.1% at a time until it's too much, then backing down, is my approach to taming this beast. Even at 1.4% it mostly overpowers the tea, but so would putting papaya syrup in a tea unless it's a hearty brew.

FA Apricot does a fantastic job of propping up the Papaya fruitiness without increasing the funk or calling too much attention to itself. FA Pear/INW Cactus 0.25% each just a touch of sweet and wet juicy goodness, but not too much of either.

Optional: Add Sweetener and/or Coolant to taste. I've been enjoying this with 0.25% FW Sweetener but I live in the southern USA where sweet tea is SWEET. Speaking of the South, WS-23. It's so hot and I needed another cool, refreshing recipe. I like it with this at 0.75% as an "over ice" type versus "frozen solid" amount of coolant, but coolant tolerance varies from one person to the next.

Give a mix and let me know what you think Or better yet, use a ludicrous-looking amount of TFA Sweet Tea and relatively small dose of your fruit of choice and make your own fruity sweet ice tea to help get you though the rest of summer.

This week in The Year of Mixing we were transported to a potions class at Hogwarts. I decided to mix up a Babbling Beverage potion to cast a spell on someone. I wanted to make something that was a bit like taking a hand full of gummy candies and put them into a syrupy drink. The idea was to make a potion that tastes great and would allow the caster to successfully deliver the potion to their target in vapor form.

If you like sweet commercial candy type vapes, this recipe is one that will be an all day vape in a tank kind of flavor.

This is my take on a warm Peach Cobbler. Flv Peach is a lot like canned peaches and Tfa Nectarine just brings in some brightness and authenticity. The Biscuit, Brown Sugar and Apple Pie come together to make a buttery warm bakery with a touch of cinnamon.

A wet, ice cold melon & cucumber mix.

FLV Wild melon, TFA watermelon, and TFA Honeydew are the base here obviously. It's a nice well rounded melon foundation, some candy notes and some natural melon notes. It's tasty. CAP Cucumber is an excellent cucumber flavor with a lot of wetness as well. TFA Pear brings some graininess to the melons, although subtle. INW Cactus Lime is my new Swiss army knife. It brings that thick juiciness that we all love from cactus but the lime adds some zing and helps cover up that weird cactus note that I don't always want in a mix. Coolant and Sweetener to taste, and can even be omitted but I've been craving that powerful cooling and the sugar lips most commercial juices give.

An authentic wet juicy and beautiful Peach that has an amazingly full mouthfeel. The Fa White Peach with Caps Juicy Peach make a lovely juicy peach stone but to take it to the next level I round the edges off with a little FA Apricot which also adds a little more moisture as does the INW Cactus. I hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed creating this from these fine concentrates.

I was asked by a coworker to formulate a grape lollipop, I brought this to him yesterday and he immediately asked for more. I thought I'd share with those of you looking for a solid grape lollipop.


No thorough notes on this one really as this was done in just a few short revisions but....

FLV grape is an awesome candy grape if you're looking to formulate your own. Also, It's very sweet so it carries the heft of sweetness in the mix.

TFA Grape Juice pumps in the little lacking grape POP so to speak.

CAP Blueberry Jam was a concentrate I hadn't found a use for yet but it serves well in this mix to provide a deeper candy "effect". Think of it as a "texturizer".

FA Meringue isn't used as a sweetener here or even intended for a sugar effect, Instead it's meant to shave off any sharp notes you may perceive from the candy components.

FA Marshmallow is used as an enhancer to serve to thicken up the mix. (Mouthfeel)
