Idea from the noted crew. Won the alchemist flavorah pack from fotw drawing and was researching red cinnamon from odies flavor facts. Found the cinnamon episode I had seen before but forgot the red cinnamon review as I didn't have that flavor at the time. I believe Dave or Emily mentioned apple option i thought sounded interesting so i thought of sour apple first to compliment the candy componet of red cinnamon. Then wanted another apple to soften the sour and not more tart so ended up with inw 2 apples. The last part was finding a bridge from red cinn inhale to apple exhale but it ended up being more of a binder. Caramel was the obvious answer. So used the old stand by with caramel candy to achieve a deeper flavor that's there but still let's the apple peek through. 0.25 percent on the red cinnamon provides a full sticky mouth feel and just works with the sour/tart of the apples. Hope you enjoy, it's different and delicious. Shake and vape approved but the caramel will develop after a couple days.
A fiery apple lemonade with a cool finish
FLV lemonade and VT fizzy sherbet make the base of the lemonade, boosted by a touch of FA grapefruit
The combo of FA Fuji and CAP double apple combine to make a strong punch of apple which keep it present from start to finish, it does die down after a few days but is kept crisp by the grapefruit and ws-23
The star attraction is the FLV red cinnamon which puts a different spin on the recipe and with the mild heat you feel on the throat and the cool blast of ws-23 they really play off of each other to give a satisfying vape.
Side note: a splash of whiskey/bourbon works well with the red cinnamon in this recipe and if that’s your thing then I would suggest adding some :)

Here is my take on “kola cubes”
A Red Cola flavoured hard boiled sweet covered in sugar.
I suggest diluting the FLV red cinnamon down to a 10% dilution in PG make it more workable. ATF does not have red cinnamon 10% dilution in the database.
FA blackcurrant adds another side to the fruityness needed to differentiate between a drink and a candy and also adds a bit of that jammy/jelly mouthfeel
Molinberry pink raspberry adds that tart red fruit with a non-realistic candy like taste.
The tart and sour Just pushes everything over to a candy profile and tarts it all up very nicely.
Don't be mistaken, she may look all sweet but she'll set you on fire. This one's spicy like those redheads ya just can't stay away from!
Tastes just like a cinnamon heart candy; spicy, sickeningly sweet with that creamy-ish hard candy center you get after you suck all the spicy off. Oh, and the room note on this, if you like hot cinnamon, is to die for! I've been painstakingly trying to achieve (and by that I mean literally...my poor throat!) this profile on and off for years now, its something Ive not seen any mixers truly be able (or brave enough to try) to pull off. That made me even more determined and well, Ive finally nailed it down, just in time for Valentines day. Now I don't do holidays but you might want to mix up a bottle for your crush or sweetheart "t-t-t-t-t-t-today junior!" (if you didn't know thats from Billy Madison...tsk, tsk, shame on you)
I initially started by trying about every red hot/tamale flavor out there but to me they all have this synthetic chemical taste on the exhale that I really despise, I wanted to feel like I just swallowed a mitt-ful of the candy hearts I keep around all year long cuz I love em so much :p The trick with cinnamon flavorings is they need to be used really low otherwise they're just miserable and will tear a hole though your throat. My initial starting place of 2% with these was a truly painful experience, I couldn't taste anything for a bit after that thanks to the perfume note that TPA takes on if used higher than this.
FLV RED CINNAMON is a good spicy hot cinnamon with no chemical taste but kinda lacks that candy edge, so we need to help it out some.
TPA CINNAMON; by accident, I realized that this is not in-fact a spice type flavor but rather a red hot flavor without the nasty chemical/perfume taste like the other offerings. This helps to fill the edge that FLV is missing.
INW CHERRIES/INW SHISHA STRAWBERRY/VT GOLDEN SYRUP
The combination of fruits at low% help fill in the candy note while staying low enough to not come upfront & golden syrup helps with the sticky mouth feel. I had initially tried CAP hibiscus & WF grenadine for the syrupy mouthfeel they are known for adding to a mix but they altered the taste too much. Golden Syrup is an incredibly useful flavoring that adds body and mouthfeel, deepens flavoring in a mix without being distracting at all.
LA CREAMCHEESE ICING/PUR MARSHMALLOW/DFS HOLY VANILLA/000 POWDERED SUGAR
This builds a chewy sticky mouthfeel with a hint of creaminess & helps blend out the harshness of the spicy cinnamon. PUR marshmallow might seem like an odd choosing but I had a reason for this. Other offerings are great for mouthfeel but PUR, I feel actually has the candy marshmallow taste, as well as feel. If you don't have it you could sub which ever marshmallow you have but I would up the holy vanilla to 1% in addition to it. Powdered sugar adds a great confection taste and feel to pretty much everything, its for sure one of those flavors you don't wanna be without.
This just helps to soften the harshness of the cinnamon and meld the mix together. You could sub MTS vape wizard if you have that instead, or omit it completely. I do find it helps but it wont break the recipe if you don't have it.
Yes this is insanely high! You could certainly omit the sweetener or adjust to your liking, I just feel that for an authentic candy cinnamon taste, it needed to be sickly sweet. This isn't an ADV anyways, (unless you're a masochist) so why not?
If you have a sensitive throat, I suggest making a small sample of this first and if you find it too spicy, you can reduce the cinnamon flavorings to .10% and .25% they are still detectable at this level but not as saturated or spicy.
I vape it right off the shake but breathing overnight will mellow it a bit and after a week steep, its a bit more creamy. This is better at higher wattages.
I honestly rate and review every single recipe I mix up & ask you to do the same.

It had to be done...Big Red
FLV Bubble Gum & VT bubble Gum Base assemble for the gum profile.
Shisha Vanilla and Marshmallow for mouth feel and to smooth out the cinnamon edges
FLV Red Cinnamon is fairly accurate to the actual gum IMO
Sweetener is optional. I like it sweet, but do what works for you.
