A hopped apple cider pudding.
This started out as a riff on Mill's "Soursop Pudding." I loved that recipe. The pudding base was on point, and I dug how he used hops as an accent to soursop. I took the basic idea and ran with it.
FLV Vanilla Pudding is the base of the recipe, bringing a smooth texture and some body to the table. The FLV Coconut is in here mostly to accentuate the richness of that pudding base. The errant bits of coconut flavor actually work pretty well, but I'm mostly after the buttery richness of that flavor.
I really wanted an excuse to try to make apple and hops work together. For some reason, I had never tryed it out, but I really dig how the hops plays with the boozy notes of FLV Apple Cider and the Apple Pop is there to really punch in the apple profile.
The cinnamon was the final addition to temper some of the clash between the boozy notes of the cider and the rich pudding. Plus, the warm spice makes this feel even more comforting and like a vaguely macho dessert you'd get at some boutique hunter's lodge. Shoutout to LimeDrive for testing an earlier version of this via Mixer's Club and suggesting cinnamon. Turns out, it ties the whole thing together.

For Week 7 - Feeling Heroic? The Year of Mixing Challenge -
My hero, the Eleventh Doctor. Out of the all the Doctor Who's I've watched Eleven is my favorite...cause bowties are cool. In the first episode as the new doctor, Eleven visits a young Amelia Pond where he finds he likes fish fingers and custard. Well I'm not making fish fingers and custard as a flavor, so I'm going with deep fried apple slices dipped in custard. So this inspired by recipe adds one of my favorite fruits - cause I'm not a super fan of strawberries.
Going for a straight fried apple dipped in a funnel cake type of coating, no cinnamon, no spices.

Edit To Review updates: After it's steep of a little over a week, I decided the funnel cake should probably be lowed a little because it is just a little too heavy. The apple notes were brought up a touch, but not much and just a little more custard notes. Otherwise it is quite tasty. All changes have been made to the recipe as it reads now.
A dark, bready tobacco with a fruity fig finish. Something like eating a sleeve of fig netwtons and a freshly opened pack of cigarettes at the same time, but at least moderately more pleasant than that. It's a bit obnoxious, really. But obnoxious can be fun, and sometimes I need a tobacco that doesn't screw around.
This recipe has a long and tortured genesis. The original base for the recipe was a recipe called "Gravity" from a MixLife grudge match between myself and the mighty ID10-T. The original parameters of the mixoff were five flavors, all flavorah. I came up with a fig newton after messing around some of the darker, bolder flavors from the flavorah line. I eked out a win (shoutout to making stupid, risky choices) with this recipe:
.25% FLV Apple Pop
.25% FLV Cookie
2% FLV Ginger Snap
.25% FLV Raisin Rum
.75% FLV Sweet Fig (Subbed out for .5% FLV Fig, as the judges didn't actually have sweet fig.)
It was good enough to win, but it was overall just a bit too dark and intense for a fig newton cookie.
But hey, Ckemist suggested turning into a tobacco, so that's what we did. Lean into the darkness.
Not a ton has changed from the original gravity recipe here. I've cut the FLV Ginger Snap in half, just because that tobacco is already pretty darn dark and I didn't need everything going too bitter and burnt. I've also just embraced the sub for FLV Fig as opposed to FLV Sweet Fig. There isn't much of a difference, and the straight Fig is quite a bit more popular.
I don't really have a solid enough grasp with tobaccos to start throwing 4 at a time in here, so I just settled for one of my favorite non-aromatic tobaccos at the basic bitch percentage of 2%. Messing around with the tobacco here is a good idea. Make it work for you. I'd generally stay away from anything aromatic. If there's anything too close to an ammonia flavor in there it's going to push that FLV Fig into some weirder off notes. This also doesn't seem to work particulary well with oriental/turkish/herbalish tobaccos. You just want something solid for all the newton to bounce off of. Kentucky worked for me here. Cured felt a little lighter but it was a'ight as well.
I'm a bit of masochist, but adding .5% FA Black Fire adds a really interesting sweet smoke to this... I thinks it's a bit too dark to really work well with INW DNB or FLV Classic Cigarette for anything too overtly ashy. This also benefits quite a bit from .25% FA MTS if it's coming across as too harsh for you.
Steep time here is mostly going to be dictated by the Tobacco. This works pretty well after an overnight, and starts to fade out a bit on day 3. That tobacco should come back in about 2 weeks though, so maybe forget about it for a while, okay? I find it works best as a high nic mtl banger but do whatever you want.
I made this as a joke but it actually turned out pretty good.
This recipe is obviously a spin off of /u/ID10-T original Strap on and I wanted to create something with all Flavorah. Be sure to try the original! https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/6487
It has a very oddly addictive taste...and it's expensive as hell.
If you mix this up let me know what you think or did different!
FLV Alpine Strawberry - This is a absolute fantastic strawberry flavor for a pure fruit type vapes. It can stand up to even the strongest of flavors and manage to punch it's way through. Really the backbone of this mix.
FLV Apple Pop - This is going to be a more niche use flavor but I fell in love with the flavor the first time I mixed it. It tastes of a mix between a candy apple and fresh apple while still having a sweet candy finish. The most unique thing this flavor provides is a sweet candy apple finish with the flavor of the apple skin. Out of all their apple flavors this seemed to fit the best in this mix.
FLV Wild Melon - As a fanatical melon lover this is my all time favorite melon flavor. It tastes like a mix of honeydew, cantaloupe and watermelon. Apsolutely perfect for this recipe as it sits it is the body of the mix; helping the watermelon.
FLV Watermelon - This flavor will turn some people off. It has a candy watermelon taste while still bringing the green rind notes along with it. If you are not too keen on the green taste then drop this down to 1.5%. I personally found the flavor provided some interesting top notes to the mix. This flavor isn't really strong and lacks a lot of body but the top notes are great and really helped bring the recipe into a unique direction.
