This is a soft pretzel with a coating of crumbled graham cracker, caramel and cinnamon sugar.
FA Soho, VT Croissant and WF Croissant help build the doughy but also crunchy pretzel base.
FW Graham Cracker along with FLV Rich Cinnamon make up the graham cracker and cinnamon sugar.
FA Caramel along with FA Soho adds a touch of caramel to the top.
Sweetener to preference, but Cap SS may make things weird.
It's not bad off the shake, but it needs a few days to really come together.
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!!! ✌️

Vanilla Apple Caramel Smoothie
An aptly named combo for these times - so good it should be shot straight into 'em veins!
Vanilla Ice Cream by LB is my go-to VIC as I am a pepper taster...This creamy beauty adds volumes of vanilla and cream to bolster the delectable smoothie base.
Apple Filling by provides the most authentic cinnamon-spiced apple around.
Caramel by FA is (still) the undisputed champion of Caramels = thick & creamy caramel goodness...
Smoothie base by FLV amalgamates the flavours and provides a touch of lemony goodness to make the apple pop ever so slightly.
Give this baby 3 days to settle and get ready to get VACS'ed!
The ice cream was pretty simple. I used Mr Evans Ice Cream Trinity as the base. 3 words for that, solid, bold and delicious.
I added 1.25% bavarian cream to it because otherwise the peanut butter, butterpecan and caramel where too dry on the exhale.
I first tried other caramels and it helped with the dryness but it changed the profile completly. So 1% FA Caramel.
For the pea-nuts I went with TPA Peanut Butter DX and FW Butter Pecan. You can easily swap for the regular TPA PB if you want.
The Butter Pecan and AP help the TPA PB really well to hold up after the steep. The Hazelnut I used as a bridge between the nuts and the chocolate.
For the chocolate I normally would have used WF chocolate chunks but for some reason it didn't give me the result I wanted, somehow it didn't work well with the nuts. So I went with TPA DCC. 0.75% is plenty.
It's great as S&V but really delicous after 10 days and even better as it ages.
Tried it in the Hadaly and really loved it MTL in my Millenium and FEV

This is from a request on a FB Group, they wanted a Coconut Milkshake with Caramel and Wafer. After vaping through 400ml since batch mixing a few different versions I thought I better release it as I have enjoyed it so much.
This is a dairy based milkshake just like I used to have as a child, a generous amount of Ice Crean blended into a pint of whole fat milk.
The milkshake base appears throughout with the caramel leaving a sticky and sweet mouthfeel with pleasant coconut accents and the wafer appearing right at the end of the vape.
The Milkshake base consists of LB Ice Cream for the ice cream part, a good ice cream on it's own but does nornally need a boost with another if using as an Ice Cream as this was to thicken and add more dairy to a milkshake this is fine on it's own here. After trying different %'s they were either too much ice cream or not enough to thicken 3.5% is the magic number just enough dairy boost and thickening without going into ice cream.
FA Milk at 1.5% gives us that creamy yet unmistakable full fat whole milk taste, higher than this makes it too thin and lower doesn't give the right consistency.
WF Coconut custard used here for the wonderful soft and silky coconut (no suntan lotion) as well as the thickening from the Custard part, this adds to the dairy and gives you a pleasing thick milkshake
FA Caramel was my first choice as a sweet and slightly sticky caramel 0.75% is enough without making it sickly however it was missing depth this is where WF Caramel Butter comes in.
WF Caramel butter combined with the FA gives this a lightly buttery sticky and syrupy caramel exactly like you'd get from a a fresh caramel.
WF Crispy wafer gives you the actual ice cream wafer slightly dark with a pleasing wafer taste and texture, taken up to 2.5% as any lower and it just disappears into the mix the texture is then boosted with JF Biscuit at 0.75% to ensure that this doesn't fade out.
Finally dessicated coconut is used to boost the coconut notes, this was chosen as it is a dry shredded coconut, this ensures that it doesn't sink into the mix too much like a creamy coconut
Definitely a red gummy chew.
TFA Raspberry has an appropriate amount of sourness to give this an authentic red gummy taste. Enhanced by 27 fish and black currant it’s got a lot of that chewy classic red gummy flavor and then a pinch of lemon lime to seal the deal. I added caramel in as a darkening agent that adds to authenticity of a gummy texture and might even be the note that added that heavy corn syrup note that all candies are known for. I didn’t use any sweetener in my blend because I find it sweet enough but anywhere between 0.25% and 0.50% FW or Capella sweetener might just boom 🚀 this over the top and make it a comercial ready type blend.
I hope you Enjoy this as much as I do.
It’s a good shake and Vape but gets a lot more depth within a day or two and after two weeks it’s not fading so it’s got longevity power.
Took me over a year to create a Strawberrymix I love.
Could drink it!
Strawberry: Red Touch provides the base, S-Ripe all the good topnotes you need to stand against the cream.
INW is optional or replaceable by +1% Red Touch, it just sweetens and moists the strawberry.
-> The Combo FA/TPA/INW is a proofed combo for versatile mixing.
Caramel: FA brings the very dark caramel, Vanilla Custard brightens it up and turns it into a sauce.
Cream: FLV Cream...nuff said, the Custard helps here, too
Sweet Strawberry / Caramel inhale and creamy / gooey exhale.
