The Finest Choc Mint Recipe I have ever tasted!
Last week the "Developed" team on you tube attempted to create this profile and struggled. In the background I liked the idea of this profile so I challenged myself to create a version of this.
First I came up with a concept recipe and then mixed it live on you tube on my channel here:
Off the shake it was pleasant but I had a question mark over the texture off the shake. However like most mixes I do I try and return back to them after a steep to learn more. This one after a couple of days was ok but not the texture I was after but after a week I am real happy with this.
The mint was a bit to prominent for my liking off the shake & at two days but after a week it has settled nicely.
Bottom line is, this has turned out to be the most delicious choc mint recipe that I have not only tasted but also created and I have tried quite a few.
What I did & Why:
I referred to real life recipes, previous successful macaron eLiquid recipes and experience from single flavor testing ect to finally come up with this recipe that turned out amazing.
The Choc & MInt - I chose LB Lava Cake as I wanted an honest yet dense flavoured chocolate that wouldn't offend here and this ended up being a good choice along with some help from the contrasting chocolate notes that comes with MB Cookie BIte. The Mint couldn't only be about the flavour of the mint. It also had to be about the illusion of texture. The only mint I know of that I get a slight chewy like type of mint from is Capella Cool Mint & it works here beautifully, not only for the mint but seemingly assists with textual mouthfeel.
However, it did take time to settle where I think it's at the right level. You could bring this down to around 0.75% but I don't think it would assist as well with the overall mouthfeel.
The Bakery - In my experience a macaron has a unique yet delectable texture and this is the biggest challenge of this profile and the developed team also seemed to struggle with for good reason, it's a massive level of difficulty. The macaron has crunch, chewiness, a meringue like texture and little mellow cream through the center.
To obtain the separation of all that in an eLiquid is no easy feat. I balanced the crunch from the tones of the MB Cookie Bite and the FA Almond, the chewiness come out from the Cap Whipped Marshmallow, a little from the FA meringue and the Cap Cool Mint. The meringue like texture came from the contrasting tones of sweetness from FA Meringue, OOO Powdered sugar and to be honest the lucky dip of notes that seemingly married together nicely from most of the concentrates that just seem to sell the over all mouthfeel of this very difficult bakery profile.
The Cream and Gloss of the Bakery - Macaron's have that lovely gloss on the bakery and to get that to feel real with everything else here I thought initially would be a challenge. Till I added VT Vanilla Buttercream Frosting that is. The buttery part of that really assists with that gloss I think and it gives a lovely center of dessert cream through the middle which just works.
This was a recipe of taking chances, combining experience and taking inspiration and going with it, but it works!
I am so glad that I took a chance and didn't give up on this as most could, because I now have a delicious all day vape that will be in a 250ml bottle ready to enjoy when ever I want.
Give it a go and let me know what you thought of this!
There are no subs here, but don't let that hold you back from experimenting and trying other ways and let me me know how that went, "Together, Let's Discover"
I tested on a Wotofo Recurve RDA 0.2ohm SST coils at 60w
I hope you enjoy this just as much as I enjoyed creating this recipe, but let me know what you thought in the comments below.
Seriously if you like a solid recipe that works give it a go!
Cheers for reading this far, now go and get mixing!

the idea was an ice cream sandwich of mascarpone with a nice chewy and crispy almond cookie
I’m not sure if it fits to the idea but sure it is going to be a good one.
I use the cc trinity to get the cream cheese feel and a little crust, probably I should go there with la cci or caps creamy yog and also fw yog
But In this iteration I preffer going this way.
The hs fvic plus tpa bvic for the buttery ice cream base and the vanilla touch an ice cream plus hs fvic eich also helps in the sourness, I feel this accent very cheese more than I wanted with the average use of it. That is why I only dropped 0.25% here.
The cookies and the almond + marzipan for the cookie part of the sandwich.
Let me know what you think
STEEP: 3 - 7 Days
An impression of an Almond Joy. Trying to figure out how to effectively clone it, and this is the first step / iteration.
Profile: Danish puff pastry with vanilla pudding, powdered sugar and a little almond
Been through several version of this.
First few version I used CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl, but it wasn't really I was looking for as the cinnamon note was way too heavy for what I was going for.
I traditional danish "spandauer" doesn't have any cinnamon in it at all, so my idea for making the pastry with it got scrapped.
I kept in VT Croissant that has been there from the start, but I felt it didn't really hold up on it's own. So I introduced WF Croissant SC to back it up. At 1% I feel it does the job backing up the 3% VT Croissant.
For the pudding I have tried a few custards such as FA Custard and Custard Prem. CAP Vanilla Custard was at the table at some point too, all in some variations with FLV Vanilla Pudding.
Sadly, no matter the combination I did, I just felt it was too overpowering, so for my final version, I decided to just stick it with FLV Vanilla Pudding.
The almond just serves as an accent for topping and so does the OOO Powdered Sugar.
It's a simple recipe, but I quite like it despite the simplicity it has.
I feel this is best after about 12 days, but very enjoyable after just 7.
So this is a Dr Pepper styled beverage using the spectacular @alfredpudding .007 cola mix https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/121307#007_cola_by_alfredpudding cola base . if you have never made this mix, you should - to date It is one of my favorite mixes. From the minute I tried his mix, I wanted to try and make a Dr Pepper styled mix -
while Dr Pepper may have 23 flavors there are several flavors that I think make it signature : birch/ sarsaparilla, almond/ amaretto/Cherry, cardamon and molasses are the key flavors I wanted to try and pull out
FLv root beer to me is one of the best root beers around and will provide that birch note I am after
FA almond provides that sweet almond extract / amaretto sweetness
WF molasiess is a dark syrup sweetness that works really well with the WF blackcherry jelly bean together I get almost a licorice type cherry note
FA cardamon is not something that you can notice unless you are really looking for it but I do find it adds "something" and you notice it when is it not there on the finish for sure
While this may not be spot on Dr peper for some - I think it is close and am really enjoying it
After walking around a fair,I bought a bar of Nougat and thought I must make a mix that tasted like this,full of nuts and fruit and lovely and sweet.
I bought both FA Torrone and INW Nougat but never tried the INW as the mix cam out well with the Torrone.
It's kind of an open recipe and nuts and fruit are your choice,I went with FW Hazelnut and FA Almond as I use these two a lot anyway and I only used Raspberry sweet as again like the torrone it seemed to work well without messing around anymore.
I like to vape with RTA's at around 45 watts and this seemed to work well there with twin Clapton coils @ 0.20 in a Dead Rabbit RTA
I also like to use all VG except whats in the flavorings,so as VG is sweet I felt no need and rarely use sweeteners.
You can shake and vape,but better after around 3-5 days
This is my take on caramel butterscotch custard. I prefer the Inawera custard for the nuttiness, heavy base and short steeping time. You have to let it sit at least one week, two weeks optimum, godlike after 40+ days.
Add sweetener of your choice and preference, SS by Cap works the best for me around 0.10% (1 drop/15 ml).
Tested on Recurve RDA, 42W, 0.35 Ohm, Tri-Core Fused Clapton Ni80.
Inspired by Flavor Pro challenge week 23
I wanted to move away from the expected with this recipe, and I was intrigued by a recipe on a cocktail recipe site that used almond and stone fruit liquor with pineapple juice, a flavor combo I have never tried in real life. It is much less expensive to try it in a vape first, and it really works! Not too sweet and a real change of pace from the typical pineapple vape.
I used VT Creaming Soda as the beverage base and punched it up with two pineapples, FLV and INW. I tried several almond flavors, and settled on the clean FA Almond. I did not want to add more brightness with the stone fruits, so I chose FA Apricot.
Tested on a Pixie, 0.38 ohm, 40 watts
