I love elements fresh squeeze, especially during these summer months. So I wondered, could I could improve on something I enjoy so much? I really enjoy it but I leave the verdict up to you!
Caps juicy Orange: I started with the Orange of course. I wanted a juicy sweet Orange with a hint of authenticity and caps juicy Orange is just that.
Ecto cooler type: this hi c inspired flavor works so well with Orange that it was a natural selection in my thought process. It adds to the sweetness and helps add punch to the juicy orange.
Shisha Strawberry and red touch: here's where the remix part comes in. I wanted something to add to the fruitiness without taking over the Orange and add a bit of juicy flavor to the mix and these strawberries do just that. I love these in tandem and they are just the supporting note I needed to give it a fruity inhale.
Super sweet: I'm remixing a commercial juice that's known to have loads of sweetener. I believe I used far less than they prob do but got the same effect by accentuating the Orange with the strawberries and ecto cooler. That said still went 1% here.
In closing I feel I've remixed this quite nicely. I've spent nearly 2 months working on it trying different fruits for accents and different levels of sweetener to get it down as low as possible without losing that sweetness we all associate with commercial juice. I hope you will give it a go and leave any and all feedback.
A very nice sweet and tarty watermelon candy like flavor. Very well balanced flavor great for the summer. Very good for those that like watermelon vapes.
Purilum watermelon is the most candy like watermelon I've tasted with a great amount of sweetness.
FW green apple is great as an accent to add flavor and tartness. Used in low percents as it's very strong and can overpower the recipe.
The cranberry adds a nice tartness as well but brings a unique flavor too the recipe , making it different from other recipes.
The red touch adds some strawberry notes with some brightness to make the recipe great. Good as a Shake n vape.

I never really delve into the world of tropical treats and I had some flavours that I was yet to try. I was hoping for a juicy tropical punch with a bit of a creamy back end, did some research and then put this together and was surprised. It's yummy delicious.
It's a sweet juicy orange juice, subtle pineapple with hint of coconut and a slight and very faint bit of strawberry, the strawberry is admittedly a little lost, however, I don't want to remove it as I like what this is. Then on the exhale its less orange and a bit more cream. Then when you've finished your exhale, you get this faint banana around your mouth with some coconut sat at the back. All round, I like it and you might too!
SUBBING - the only one I can think of is switching Red Touch for TFA Strawberry Ripe/Strawberry but maybe drop it to just 2%. I haven't tried it though and I don't really like the concept of subbing ingredients (BOOOOOOO!).
SHAKE THE SHIT OUT OF YOUR CONCENTRATES BEFORE MIXING, ESPECIALLY BLOOD ORANGE.
Screwed Kanzi version 2 is an ADV which is a Shake&Vape of 7 Flavors + Super Sweet (Total of 14%)
70/30 to 80/20 - @ 2.5mg/ml Nic (as you can see, continuously lowering my prefered Nic-level)
I like Kanzi.... now after adding Blackcurrant & Dragonfruit, using (FW) Kiwi & (LA) Watermelon, this is getting really close to the Canadian recipe.
The Blackcurrant and Dragonfruit help the Kiwi, Strawberry and Watermelon stick and the Pear gives the sweetness more of a fruity depth.
Let me know if you like it so please comment.
Everyone needs a Strawberry Cream. Finally i've made one i'm happy with.
It's not to sweet, it's soft and fluffy, exactly what i was aiming for.
The mix of FAs Red Touch and TPAs Strawberry Ripe is more on the authentic side for me which i prefer, but still sweet enough.
Marzipan is nice for a sweet taste after the Strawberries, which does linger a bit and adds an extra layer.
Whipped Cream is used as a cream base, with the Meringue and Sweet Cream making it more milky, soft and improving the otherwise boring texture.
Lemon Sicily just adds a nice fresh extra layer to the mix.
If you like it, please leave a rating.
Update: Added 2% TFA Graham Cracker Clear and 0.25% FA Rose to blend everything a little bit better and to add something special to it which fits well.
Update 2 (now finished): -3% Red Touch -1% Strawberry Ripe. Added 4% CAP Strawberry Taffy.

A cool fresh melon, ripe mango, sweet strawberry & crisp cucumber salad with a spritz of a lime wedge, lightly finished with a fresh leaf of spearmint. Everyone has their idea of what a fruit salad is comprised of. But there are no laws...And anything is possible!
60-65VG is preferred
SNV certified, but really begins to shine after 3 days. FLV flavorings tend to need some steeping.
Any substitutions will not being you to this exact flavor
I suddenly got in the mood for a fruit salad and well....with no fruit in the house I was left to my own devices and concentrates.
The only thing I knew was that I wanted melon, mango and strawberry. I chose SC Strawberry(SC) at 1% and FA Strawberry at 2%. I have always preferred Flavour Arts Strawberry over TFA so this was an easy decision. I used RF Strawberry Super Concentrate to boost FA as it can sometimes not pack enough 'umph'.
The melon part was interesting because I had just received FLV Wild Melon in the mail. Upon opening that concentrate(and the RF Strawberry), I knew I had to make something special with them. I wanted a bit of watermelon as well, as a background note. I have always liked FAs version. Never been a fan of LA Watermelon. It just tastes like rancid lipstick to me.
TFA Philippine Mango seemed like the perfect addition to this mix. I only had a real Philippine mango once in my life(i usually purchase the more citrus-like Puerto Rican variety at the local supermarket). But what I remembered about the Philippine variety was the sweet light and fleshy taste. And that was definitely what I wanted to add to this mix.
I added FA Oba Oba in because I can't stand even the tiniest percentage of INW Cactus. The taste is just....ugh. And I found Oba Oba to brighten, sweeten, and slightly juice up my fruits.
Now. I wanted to add something unique to my recipe. I wanted the taste of spearmint, but not an up front kind of a spearmint. I chose CAPs because it's the most authentic. However, it needed a little kick to be more authentic. This is when I decided to add some Koolada. It was the perfect pairing. After taste testing, I decided something was lacking. And that something was lime. I purposely avoided Cold-Pressed, etc., and settled on Capella Lime because it's much 'softer'.
