Flavor Profile: additive
Used in 2403 recipes at an average of 0.96%.
Jaws by Hold Fast was and still is a popular E-Liquid on the market today. Long story short, I have been tackling quote on quote clone recipes for a LONG time now. Mostly having the time working in the industry and having the privilege of working in a mixing lab for about 7 years. Now saying that, a good friend that I work with is just plain obssesed with this liquid (Watermelon Jawbreaker). So I decided to take a crack at it, with all this time being in a lab, why not right.
Starting off with what I thought was evident enough of being the main profile was FW Watermelon, and the second ingredient obviously FW Jawbreaker or now known as Jaw Breaking Candy. I've used FW Watermelon so many times and know the taste anytime it's in a recipe. This as everyone probably knows is damn strong, like needing to change the seals on your tank or rda strong. After playing around ALOT with this profile it would come close or maybe around 80-85% to the actual recipe, but their was just something missing that I could not figure out, until using FW Hard Candy..
I hit a road block that i simply couldn't get around like 100% of the time trying to take on a "clone". Most of the time when in stuck I'll just pick up flavors off the shelf and start to smell them and finger tasting. As soon as I picked up and wiped the dust off of FW Hard Candy, smelling and tasting...it hit me! Hard Candy has the same Watermelon in it that is FW Watermelon, but it also has it's own unique taste. So after scrapping FW Watermelon completely it automatically took the recipe to up about 90%...but.. yes the part where their is still just something missing...of course. Mind you at this point it's just a 2 flavor recipe, and the sweetener of course. Now, it was all about tweaking the recipe again and again and again. This time it was a little harder to try to figure out what was missing to make the recipe what it is. So adding some TFA Ethyl Maltol to the mix it really helped to "blend" the recipe and make it more copisthetic. Yet it was still quite not there. After some time with playing around with %s I decided to try cranking the flavors up a little higher then I normally would like, around 10%. Too much for The Hard Candy, but when I reversed it and jacked up the Jaw Breaker, it suddenly all came together. For some reason, JawBreaker at 10% just worked and changed into what it seems to have been missing. Why? I'm not sure, but it worked. Now for trying to get it where it needed to be I added .5% of TFA Ethyl Maltol and for me personally .75% of CAP Super Sweet is not too much or too little. Also, going any higher than .5% with the Ethyl Maltol seemed to make it a little harsh for whatever reason, so I would just leave it at .5%.
So, i do hope you all enjoy this recipe and I'll continue to try to tackle "clones" because i enjoy the challenge. I do really feel this recipe to me, is about 94-96% to the original. Taste is subjective again, but again i hope you all enjoy it! Cheers!🍻
MB Mango is Frandy Flavours mango
The FLV Guava is straight up grapefruit, and that's what I'm going for here.
The citrus notes are there as a bed for the grapefruit accent to lie on top of. The juicy lemon is a light sharp accent to bump up the grapefruit.
The mangoes are there as a second accent, but also to smoothen the sharper notes from the citruses
The orange cream can be left out if you don't have it. The mb juicy orange can be substituted for for capella's at 1%
The sweetener and WS23 is of course entirely optional.
I would give it 3 days for the fruits to blend and the citrus to settle.
I've been working on this for quite awhile. It's based off of my own memory of what Space Jam's Starship tasted like. That juice was one of my favorites when I first started vaping. The custard percentage may look high(as the total flavoring also looks high). But trust me on this. It's a helluva good vape!
Can be vaped after a 2-3 hour heat/speed steep. I put mine in a water-tight ziplock in extremely hot tap water. Every 1/2 hour, I would replace the water when it cooled while shaking the HELL out of the juice bottle.
Best at MAX VG

Cool cool strawberry vape. Made this for a friend that loves this cool strawberry tast. I’m no fan of the WS-23/koolada effect, but I have to say that this mix grew on me.
For my own version I take the WS-23 down to 1.5%, ET is 0.5% (I have a 5% solution) and you can leave out the Dragon
Fruit, but it adds that little extra.
Give it a try
Edit: took WS-23 down to 1% - it was just too much
A full-flavored Raspberry/Strawberry mix after 5-days steeping.
The Phillipine Mango gives this mix more body. Lemon Meringue makes it "pop". And Peach adds a layer of juiciness.
A tad harsh for the 1st three days. I steeped mine 5 days. 3 months in, still extremely flavorful.
To me this is a balanced, sweet, slightly lemony Torrone Nougat.
Torrone @ 1.5: I wanted to push the flavor for as much as I could get from it while keeping the whole recipe sweet and smooth.
Almond(FA): the Torrone nougat has almonds in it and the chewy candy is actually a candied almond paste.
Marzipan(INW): I use Marzipan because of how it enhances the Almond flavor.
Cream Fresh (FA) and Meringue (TPA): when used at same percentages they infuse a "Wetness" to the overall flavor, in addition to their creaminess. Additionally, I wanted TPA Meringue for the sweet powdered sugar properties that it would bring to this candy nougat.
Lemon Meringue Pie V2 (CAP): This was just a stroke of genius, a hunch, whatever you call it, but I was toying with this recipe using Toffees and had an "AHA" moment , … so I tried it and I liked it....
Vienna Cream (FA) : Vienna cream adds to that creamy punch needed to balance the nuttiness of Torrone
Vanilla Swirl (TPA): Again to add dimension to the creaminess and hopefully, at 2 %, add some chewiness to the recipe.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I do. You comments are welcome and appreciated.
The 7 DAY STEEP required will result in a vape with light fluffy angel food cake, topped with a sweet lemon-cream cheese icing. (Warning: vaping earlier than 7 days will be slightly 'Pledgey'!)
