Strawberry Ice Cream Sandwich
This started as a blackberry ice cream sandwich recipe that I adapted to match what I had on hand. The base is very nice. Trying it out with strawberry which I think will be great. Maybe a blueberry after this. Maybe a pistachio or peach too. Who knows?
I originally adapted a recipes by R2ME2 named Blackberry Ice Cream Sandwich to match what I had on hand. I then adapted my adapted recipe to a strawberry version. Try the original if you have the ingredients, it is great as well.
I always mix and steep my recipes before making them public. Requires about 1 week to mature. The River Supply Vanill milkshake has a thick sort of malty aspect. I will miss this flavor now that river supply is done for the residential side of their business. The Fa custard that low slightly thickens the shake and I have noticed it brightens peaches. FA Apricot is key for my tastes in a good peach mix. Gives it some body and deepness. Takes peaches from Yoplait yogurt peach like to a more reddened ripe peach. Fw Vanilla Bean Ice Cream at 2 and some flavorah cream at .25 will work in this mix should you not have RS van Milkshake.
This recipe wouldn’t be where it is now without the generous help, support, guidance & advice from LukeLoop & Pippa Starr (DIYDownunder-Pippa). This has been a recipe I’ve been working on since I started mixing over 12 months ago, & has been quite the labor of love! It’s very loosely based on the flavours in Humble juice Co. “Humble crumble”. It was a beautiful moment recently when a friend told me they preferred this over the Humble Crumble! It blew me away actually!!😳🥺
It was very unbalanced to begin with, being all berry & no crumble, but Luke & Pippa got me on a more balanced track!
This was also an exercise in using what I had, & not using any crumble topping. A crumble topping from scratch so to speak!!
This may look like a hot mess express with all the bakeries, but each & every 1 of them brings something unique to the recipe (I think).
The last change made was the addition of CAP Golden Butter-previous versions didn’t have it-it was nice, but it needed some more butteryness.
I also thought of increasing the FA caramel by .15 to .75. But I hypothesised that the golden butter may add additional caramel notes. I tested after 14 day steep (14 days is minimum-I would suggest longer for the full effect), & to me, the caramel notes are adequate with the .50%, but you could try another .15% FA Caramel if you wanted. I might revisit this down the track, along with another 1% of TPA Vanilla Swirl (that was another hypothesis, but I was assured privately that the recipe looked good where it was). Anyway, I’m quite happy with it as is for the moment.
I guess it’s a case of where do you stop fiddling & tweaking a recipe before you release it? Lol!! I could keep fiddling, but, I do think it’s nice at this point-in saying that, it’s definitely not off the cards that I’ll fiddle with this more in the future! I hope you like it!! I’m truly an open book-if you have any suggestions, or you think I should move the caramel or vanilla swirl, please let me know your thoughts!!
Feel free to sweeten-I’m sensitive to the stuff, so I generally try to avoid it if & when I can!!
Vaping is under attack globally...all I ask is that you do your little bit-in whichever way you can, in whatever capacity you see fit, whenever you can. We all need to unite in the fight to keep vaping available...not only for us in the vaping/DIY community, but for all the smokers out there, yet to discover the life saving technology that is vaping.
Please, do what you can to keep up with advocacy where you are at in the world-not only for your benefit, but for the benefit of the community...as well as for family, friends, colleagues & acquaintances who are still smokers...for those yet to find vaping...
use that "Google Foo people"
As Nick, Grimm Green would say "Don't let any crooked politician tell you otherwise...vaping (has been proven to be) AT LEAST 95% safer than smoking deadly combustible tobacco..."
"The SCIENCE HAS to win, ...Right?"
Keep on, vaping on people!!! ...
&, keep ur DIY'ing game on too!!! ✌️

Switched percentages of FA Apple Pie and Cap Apple Pie v2 as FA Apple Pie was more crust than filling and I wanted a more saturated vape.
-Fruit Circles TPA and Berry Crunch TPA were the 2 flavors I used for the cereal base and at the percentages used in final mix I found didn't under or over perform.
-Lemon Meringue Pie CAP was used for some of the canceling of the lemon pledge that many people suffer from Fruit Circles as well as help create the proper lemon note for the cereal profile. As well, no complaints for meringue in cereals right?
-Apple Pie FA is used to give further support helping blend grain and fruit. This recipe does not fail leaving this out but for me it adds a nice little noticeable touch that enhances the flavor experience and this small amount does smooth the entire profile out a touch.
-Fig Fresh really helps in balancing the fruity profile not allowing for any fruit to bully one another, it works well doing this and I feel it also helps cancel the lemon pledge.
-Royal Orange Juice FA chosen because orange was the missing flavor found that really helped in totally canceling that awful lemon pledge funk in TFA Circles. Also it critically added that final balance plus smoothness to the fruit mix that I could never nail down. It was always the orange and I always put too much emphasis on the lemon.
-Vienna Cream FA- I use this in most any cereal I make for creamy milkiness. If you want to sub this then Vienna Cream FA is the only one that could be easily for your favorite milk/cream or you can just leave it out.
*Also, Royal Orange FA could be subbed as well but it is what I liked in the final. I tried all the FA orange flavors and a couple of others CAP, TPA but Royal Orange FA just worked best for me to assist the balance of the fruits and help kill the lemon pledge.
Below is a little bit about the luck of finding a recipe to build off of and attention to small details that made this remix/clone finally become a success for this long project. If it were not for the Cereal Killa recipe I found and the Cereal Killa eliquid review I found then this recipe would not have happened. Most of it was luck but I was diligent in researching eliquid reviewers definitions of Creal Killa's profile because some people can describe things I often overlook when describing what they taste in a profile of an eliquid.
For a long time I had been searching for a flavor combination that tics the marks for 9 South Vapes Cereal Killa. That smooth flavorful balanced cereal has been a struggle for many of us trying to duplicate a clone or remix that fits that Cereal Killa goodness. I have finally nailed down a remix that works at least for me and some others I have had try this recipe. I know that some of the flavorings I am using are the ones used in the original and a couple are not and at least one certainly is not but they all seem to work well together. The problem with a good clone for this was the lemon pledge that comes from the fruit circles and no other fruity cereal works good enough for me. Last year, I found a Cereal Killa clone recipe on reddit that I got some ideas from during covid lockdown. The account was listed under the name of Mr. Boggy if I remember correctly. From his recipe on reddit it was 5% Fruit Circles TPA, 3% Lemon Meringue Pie CAP and 2% Capt' Crunch TPA which I changed to 3% Berry Crunch TPA because it's what ended up working. So I found a good base to work with and I changed up the percentages many times over.
What ended up with me getting this recipe successful was that I listened to several peoples feedback on youtube who reviewed the Cereal Killa. One particular reviewer said it tasted like fig newtons. I know that orange and fig is in fig newtons and sure enough, when I used fig and orange in my test mixes I finally got the profile balanced and perfected so close that I cannot tell the difference hardly at all. Fig helped balance the fruity profile and Orange was one of the main elements that was needed for the critical adjustment and not lemon or lime. All that time we were stuck trying to fix the lemon and lime and all along it was the orange. Finding this recipe working out for me the way it does makes me feel others will appreciate this as well.
I'm sure the original cereal killa didn't have the exact flavors I am using but what I am using is very similar to what was used. Either way, I enjoy this remix or clone just as much as the original. It is flavorful, tasty and balanced fruit loops and best of all, the lemon pledge is canceled out.
A Cranberry & Apple Pie finished with a serving of Vanilla Cream, created for the Fresh From the Kitchen monthly challenge (Fall Recipe)
Tested on a Hussar II Rda with a 2.5mm I.D Ni80 Alien @ 39watts
Off the Shake:
I am getting a heavy apple filling with a slight cranberry & pie base with a hint of cream,
After 3 days it has developed its pie base that is buttery thanks to the Flavor Art Apple Pie & Wonder Flavours Shortbread Cookie, the apple filling and cranberry are both presenting themselves, all the spice notes have settled and are currently offering a good spice note to the Mix. The creams are there but still not as pronounced as I intended.
Tested on a Haku Riviera Single 0.2ohm Alien coil @ 48 watts
FA Apple Pie/ WF Shortbread Cookie are giving me a buttery Pie crust, the fruits are where I want them to be with the right amount of spice, the pear & liquid amber are giving me the stewed fruit texture that I am after. The cream is starting to sit into the tail of the vape as intended, however would still like it to be more prominent.
Day 7: The cream is finally present & playing its role in finishing off the pie.
Day 10: Everything has settled into its place and I am getting a nice buttery dessert pie crust with a stewed apple & cranberry filling with a light amount of spice, finished with a serving of a vanilla cream.
Just a simple apple pie
FLV Apple Filling and Pur Country apple form the filling here. FLV apple filling is a great cinnamon baked apple and country apple backs that up nicely adding some more baked apple body that stands up nicely to the crust. FA Apple pie has a very slight hint of apple as well that helps to tie this together with the crust.
The crust, arguably the best part of any apple pie, is formed by none other than OOO Pie Crust along with some FA Apple pie. WF crumble topping gives a nice crunchy, sugary, feel to the crust that I think was missing in some of my earlier renditions of this flavor profile.
Nothing crazy going on here, just a pretty simple, but delicious apple pie mix.
