The idea here was to create a sweet grape cigarillo. FLV Native Tobacco is a robust neutral tobacco with some really nice fruity notes that pair really nicely with INW Grapes. To make that brighten up that grape note I added 0.25% FA Bilberry.
HS Tab Blended is such a unique flavor. I’ve heard it described as an RY4 without the tobacco note and I could see why someone would say that but to me it has some good tobacco notes. The thing I really like about it is the texture. If you’re into straight up tobacco I strongly recommend you pick this flavor up. You with NOT be disappointed.
Last is the glue that holds everything together. WF Vanilla Ruyan Custard is an excellent tobacco custard flavor that does a really good job of blending together the tobacco note and the grape note.
Sweeten to taste. I use FW Sweetener as I felt that CAP SS created too much separation between the Tab and Grape notes.

Some might say that Die Hard is a Christmas movie, others refuse to acknowledge that. What I believe to be indisputable however, is that Die Hard’s antagonist Hans Gruber planned nearly every detail of his heist perfectly. What detail did Gruber fail to account for? Lunch.
When you’re hungry, you’re distracted, and when you’re distracted you make mistakes. Gruber was no exception. Underestimating John McClane might be something we all chalked up to hubris. Then again, it could just as easily have been that Gruber was trying to expedite things as his stomach protested the long day at Nakatomi Plaza. Gruber needed to pack himself a lunch, and what is the single most American lunch he could have packed to further solidify his claim that he was a hostage and not, in fact, the leader of the criminals who had stormed the plaza? Peanut butter and jelly. That’s right. I submit that the key to preventing the Die Hard franchise from making it past the first installment was little more than a quaint sandwich that could have helped sell Gruber’s claim that he was an american, and further prevented him from making non-trivial mistakes that cost him his escape in the end. This… is that sandwich.
So lets break down the actual recipe, yeah?
Okay, so there are 3 things I was absolutely certain of going into this one: PB DX, Concord Grape w/ Stevia, and INW Grape(s) would be core to success here.
I was absolutely certain from the minute that I tasted CAP Concord Grape that the Concord grape and Grape(s) would be enough to sell grape jam authentically. A light touch of FW Sweetener really helps push the sugary sweet jam aspect and separate it from the other two elements.
TFA's Peanut Butter DX is still, in my opinion, the gold standard for Peanut Butter flavors, and in this case it needed a little help from FW Hazelnut to help it remain present, and FLV Beer nuts to add a touch of salt and to help it stand up separately from the jam and bread.
Plain ass white bread, this should be simple, right? This was honestly where I struggled more than anything else. I came to the conclusion that WF Croissant would be too dry and flakey on its own, a little too authentic to an actual croissant. So I needed to make it a little chewier, a little gummy. FLV Starch base brings the croissant back down from its high horse and turns it into a much more authentic bread rather than pastry.
I'm calling for a 7 day steep, but I can't say I feel it needs the extra time, if you're impatient it's good right off the shake but it should fully come into its own in the course of a week.
This mix replicates a tall glass of my childhood favorite.
FW Grape Soda nails purple bubbles however it's a bit lacking in dimension. I add CAP Double Apple and INW Grape to really fill in the those spots. VT Creaming soda to give it a creamy head and FA Bilberry to juicy up the grapes.
It's pretty good off the shake but I steep it at least 24 hours.
I sweeten with 0.25% CAP Super Sweet.
Btw Inw grapes and grape are the same flavors....my grape journey began as all my other projects begin with 2 flavors that work really well together. This time it was Inw Grapes/JF blueberry which make a banging 2 flavor mix. But still it wasnt a full recipe it needs a supporting cast in the form of american bubble gum, but it still needed something else. Shoutout to Isuamadog and Robot because without their use of cap double apple I dont know if I ever would have finished this. The mix needs an overnight steep as Inw grape needs a minute to calm down a bit. Sweeten to taste.
Tasty grape bubblegum! Using bilberry grape and double apple achieves a grape goodness without any off notes.
The holy trinity of grape makes this good af.

Blue Raspberry from scratch
As legend has it, five mixers came together on the Diy_ejuice discord and played a dangerous game. Each one selected a flavor secretly and threw it into the pot. After a bit of brewing and dark magic, they were amazed by what had been created! Somehow Blue Razz appeared out of the five basic elements: pizza, pudding, dog, malfunction, and foment.
