Started with Fuji apple and ended up with this concoction. Actually it did not have the wild melon in it last night. But as I was enjoying vaping it I found that the melon was just not showing up how I wanted it or envisioned it when I put JF honeydew in. Someone I know vapes tried it and said yummy grape! So somehow 2 apples, 1 pear, 2 honeydews, 1 cantaloupe, and 1 blueberry somehow makes grape. NOTES...I love VT bilberry ripe and this was what I wanted to build a recipe with that day. I really couldnt come up with a better partner to showcase this flavors than a couple of really nice melons. They work well together and they did me well again here. I also noticed how well melons work as a background flavor. Probably the best mixing tip I have learned thus far is that 97% of flavors out there by itself is not goos. Making a good recipe involves building something from the ground up and complimenting one flavors weaknesses with another's strength. Getting to know your flavors is a huge aspect of becoming a good mixer and you get that by mixing more. Anyways I was getting closer but for whatever reason I wanted these fruits to taste like they had just been sprayed by those sprinklers in the grocery store and you picked 5 of them up (and somehow blueberry jam was a thing mixed in those fruit) and shoved them in your mouth. I used pear to attain this effect. Just needed balancing from there. Sub whatever you have to except FA pear, Flv wild melon, Jf honeydew, and VT bilberry ripe are all integral and the recipe would not convey what I wanted without them. EDIT: This isnmy favorite thing I have come up with in the month that I began mixing and I also made it better, at least I think. I added 1% fw blueberry and it just sets this recipe from really good to banger status. Really would like to hear what you guys think. <3
Flavor Choices & Thought Process
Whipped Cream & Marshmallow TFA - I wanted this flavor to have that creamy fluffy texture of a yogurt. I also don't have any yogurt flavors so I made a base using what I had available to me. So I used these two as the texture/somewhat dairy-like base for the recipe.
Sour TPA & Kiwi FA - Like stated above, I don't have any yogurt flavoring. So in order to get that sour note I used this to achieve that along with the how sour/tart kiwi FA is. While still giving it that kiwi flavor.
Strawberry ripe TPA & CAP Sweet Strawberry - This gives the juice its strawberry-ness while provide a touch of sweetness.
Pear FA - the low percentage just adds some wetness to the liquid. This helps it not be a "dry vape"
Optional -- Super Sweet CAP - Sweeten to taste. If you want a more tart yogurt don't use any.
Flavor Percentage Adjustments.
Upped the strawberries in the recipe to give it more strawberry flavor.
Strawberry ripe TPA - up to 3% from 2%
Sweet Strawberry CAP - Up to 1.75% from 1.25%
If you want more kiwi up the percentage to 1%
Pear adjusted up to 0.50% to make it less dry feeling.
A sub that might work better possibly
Just a delightful peach pear flavor. Going for a juice head peach pear vibe with this one.
Add .25% cactus concentrate if you want a tad more wet mouth feel to this liquid. If you don't like cactus concentrate you can leave it out.
Super Sweet CAP can be adjusted to taste. 0.75% and 1% is what I've tested with this mix.
Juicy Peach CAP - 6%
Peach White FA - 1.75%
Pear TPA - 2.5%
Pear FA - 1%
Super Sweet CAP - 0.75 to 1%
The concept is simple. Everything here that is not building the fruit body contains either Diacetyl, Acetyl Propionyl, and/or Acetoin. All those delicious DAAPy things that make creams and custards good. Past that it was all a matter of making the pun on pear skin work.
What we end up with is a nice rich custard with sweet bits of pear mixed in.
Increased pears by 0.5% and 1% for TFA and FA respectively. trying to push it enough to stand up to the cream.
Added 1% FA Fuji
A chocolate creamy banana chewy sweet.
Just plaing with acai and thought banana would match it well.
Acai gives a thin chocolate-like layer and the 2 bananas combine to give the fake sweet banana candy. I've used the cream to reduce the acai prescence a little, for mouth feel and to blend the 3 together. The pear just adds a little sweetness, wetness and adds to the fake banana flavour.
This is the first recipe I've published so any feedback (good or bad) is really appreciated.
A general rundown on certain flavor choices.
Cucumber CAP - This gives it a nice juicy wetness factory. That way the juice won't be overly dry feeling in the mouth.
Salt Water Taffy FW - Very potent but when used in the 0.50% to 1.00% range can really add a nice taffy texture to a juice.
Super Sweet CAP - Gives it that commercial brand kick you see in most premium eliquids.
-A large credit goes to Dragonlady over at the /r/DIY_ejuice subreddit for a good base starting points on a mystery air head flavor. Thank you!
The idea behind this recipe started in the DIY_eJuice discord, where we were just bullshitting in the lobby one day, coming up with words that rhymed with "soda". Yoda came up, so I figured, being the "soda man" and all, why not give a "yoda soda" a shot.
So I started thinking, what are the characteristics of Yoda? First off, he's green. What "green" flavors do I have? Lime, Cactus, Apple, Pear, Honeysuckle, Hibiscus were on the shortlist (yes I know their flowers aren't green, but I considered all florals "green" for this purpose).
He's also an elder. That's where Elderflower came in to the picture.
So now I had all these flavors in mind, time to make this actually taste good.
The soda part is something I've worked with a lot, so of course I had to use my go-to fizz base: FLV Citrus Soda, CAP Lemon Lime & WS-23. As true effervescence is not (yet) possible to achieve in vape form, I feel that the sprite esque citrus notes from those flavors is as close as you can get to vaping a soda.
FLV Elderflower became the main part I wanted to build around, and I know that pear and elderflower is a great pairing. FA Pear is perfect for that as it's very sweet, something that is needed to make the recipe balanced against the funky florals and sharp citruses.
TFA Honeysuckle was on the short list, and it is sort of a "funky pear" so I think it's a perfect match here to help the pear with the sweet part, and also bring a more funky vibe to the whole recipe.
As I did a first test mix with those flavors, I knew I was on the right path. The flavors all pair beautifully with eachother and the overall feeling you get from it is very refreshing. After that it was all about finding the right balance between the sharp citruses, funky florals and sweet pear. It took quite a few attempts to get the balance between the elderflower, honeysuckle and lemon lime right, but I think it ended up great. I wouldn't nesscesarily say that it tastes like "yoda".. whatever that would be, but I think the common thread in the recipe is make makes this a yoda soda.
TLDR flavor notes;
FLV Citrus Soda & CAP Lemon Lime acts as the sprite esque soda base, WS-23 adds the cooling which further enhances the soda feeling.
FA Pear adds a very sweet and authentic pear flavor. It's very juicy which helps the mix with the freshness.
TFA Honeysuckle pairs great with the pear to give that funky sweetness, it helps sweeten the citruses and adds some complexity to the mix.
FLV Elderflower adds a floral touch, although it's a bit sweeter than other flowers, and a little musky. I think the sweet-tart flavor that blueberries usually have, this is in the same realm as that.
