Happy Saint Patrick's Day! Enjoy chasing the Lepershawn!
The Irish make it queer without me having to look too far. Enjoy the pistachio, the lucky marshmallow, and the butter rainbow cookie all at once!
To be fair, this thing is a monster, but I'll try to explain the idea. I know it looks like I through a lot of stuff together and got fairyfied, but there's a logic to the madness.
FA Marshmallow/FA Meringue/ TPA Lucky Leprechaun = That your marshmallow fluff. FA Marshmallow is my favorite marshmallow and I also find that it fades the least. TPA lucky Leprechaun is a marshmallow cereal and I think the dryness of it works well to support the pistachio and sobber up the cookie.
WF Almond Cookie/TPA Pistachio/FLV Pudding = that's your pistachio pudding, and if you want this thing to taste like pistachio, don't hesitate to go nuts! WF Almond Cookie also supports the rainbow cookie deal in this mess.
CAP Sugar Cookie/CAP Buttercream = That's your rainbow buttery cookie that liaise decently with the pudding and the marshmallow.
And there you have it, my March madness. Oh and steep it, it's absolutely weird on the shake.
Enjoy, be queer & vape on!

My first experience with Hard Crack Toffee, it smells super potent so starting at 1, LB ice cream is a short steep and very good imo, boosted the vanilla with Holy Vanilla and give the cream a leg up with the FA, added CCGC as an after thought as I thought it needed a touch of crunch, Tastes good off the shake... hopefully it doesn't get too heavy 😏
I was hoping to get this done with just one concentrate but taking the hard cracked toffee too high resulted in too much coffee, I tried FW salted caramel and it was too rough by the time I got it high enough for the same caramel taste so I chose chefs choice/CCW and it worked out perfectly, there was a slight fresh cream/milk note in the original so I added 1% fresh cream. The 1st revision I made had 2% super sweet in it but the sweetness was at the front and in the original it came after the coffee/caramel so I reduced the super sweet to 0.75 and added the marshmallow which seems to layer the sweetener in the same way as the original does. This is 95% there if I fucked with the %’s a bit more I could get it 100% but it would be fiddly and so much of this clone/remix game comes down to perception and you can’t please everyone but I’m happy enough to put it out there and say “can you do better?” :)
I know there is probably some difference in concentrates between the original and the remix but it’s that close why be picky 😆
Rudolph on Acid - My Christmas gift to the mixing community.
This is not a remix/clone of SMAX - Pony On Acid, it is however, inspired by that profile . I've been working for some time to clone Pony on Acid, and I've gotten close but it's not ready for release. I did however, want to release my version of what I imagined this profile could be.
SMAX describes Pony On Acid as "A blend of magical berries laced with a euphoric strawberry glaze." The images SMAX uses to describe this profile includes, strawberries, pineapple, and raspberries atop a light, fluffy cream, and that truly describes what I taste in the original. However, there are some off notes in the original that I get. There is a "hairspray" or "floral" note that is very off-putting and the "cream" layer seems a bit thin. So, I decided to use the profile as a guide but approach it differently.
To me, the cream needed to be fuller, and have more of a mouth-feel. I decided to go with a custard, but not a very "eggy" custard. FA Custard Premium was just right for this. If you're in the USA, you'll probably have a hard time finding this flavoring because FA North America doesn't want it sold in the USA. But DIY-ers can still purchase it through www.chefsflavours.co.uk .
In the original, I could definitely taste a marshmallow and it fit very well with the profile, so I stayed with that note and used FA Marshmallow at 2%.
The original's description states it is "laced with a euphoric strawberry glaze". You can simulate a "Strawberry Glaze" in many different ways. You use CAP Sweet Strawberry in conjunction with another strawberry and maybe add TPA Sweet Raspberry, and I actually did use that in some of my versions. However, I think the TPA Sweet Raspberry was what was giving the mix a "Hairspray" off note. I decided not to add a raspberry note and by doing so, eliminated the off note. Also, to keep with the profile and to consolidate the recipe as much as I could, I used only one strawberry, JF Strawberry Sweet. It has a nice "cooked" strawberry note much like a strawberry glaze.
The original's description doesn't mention anything about a pineapple. However, in all of the images SMAX uses to describe the profile, they show pineapple with the strawberries and in the original I definitely get a pineapple note. They are probably using CAP Golden Pineapple but in my mix it seemed a bit weak even at 1.5%. I decided I wanted a more distinct pineapple and TPA was the obvious choice, but you have to be careful with it because it can be harsh over .5% and can take over a mix. So I used it very low at only .25%.
I added Super Sweet at .5% to lift everything up make it more vivid. If that's too much, you can always reduce it to your liking.
I do believe this mix stays true to the profile while expressing my own preferences. Anyone who enjoys Pony On Acid, I hope, will enjoy this as well. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
This can be a shake and vape but it's best to steep it for 2-5 days.
I hope you will mix, comment, and or rate, it make us all better mixers. :)
