This Mix was done for Our 1st live episode using. We talked about FLV Berry Blend in a live show - https://youtu.be/BYKq4D3Fh6o
I wanted to see if I could mix Berry Blend as the main profile into something familiar that Ive done before.
My Idea here was to Use a Jelly Candy Base that I know well to test how the Berry Blend would stand up in a Mix and it did Surprisingly well!
The combination of the Black current adds adds some wetness to the Berry Blend giving you one Juicy Berry main Profile. I also added Candy roll to boost the berries some more, you end up with a visible and balanced mix of the the red and purple gummy bears together.
Fuji @ 1.5 adds a Candy syrup that pushes that 'natural' sweetness of the other fruits.
I added a bit of sour here to mimic the juicy mouth sensation with a chewed gummy candy, I find the sour changes the way you taste some fruits and here it works well to do that.
Add if you like sweet stuff, Dont if you dont :-)
THIS RECIPE IS NOT DONE! THERE WILL BE SOME CHANGES.
I know that everyone's first thoughts are going to be "OMG that is a lot of Cherry!" but you will just have to trust me if you enjoy Cherry Jolly Ranchers. The Vape Train Cherry is a fairly weak flavor in the first place whereas the FW Hard Candy is a bit of a bully. I tried to use the lowest amount possible of the Hard Candy but I felt like any less than this and it was not selling the Jolly Rancher taste. However by the time I had the Hard Candy high enough to be present it had drowned out the Cherry completely so I had to keep turning it up until it was present again. It took me several attempts to get this where I wanted it.
There is NO substitute for this Cherry and on its own you will still get some of the dreaded cough syrup vibe. I found it at Chefs but perhaps BCF will start carrying it at some point. The sour notes in this mix work to eradicate the cough syrup vibe you may get from it on its own. The Cactus is in there to give you that juicy mouthfeel and help increase the tartness from the Sour. I went out and bought a bag of the Jolly Rancher Suckers to see how close I was getting and noticed the slightest hint of Fuji Apple in the actual candies. I think this is as close as I am ever going to get to this profile. It needs a few days to settle in for best results. Off the shake the Cactus and Fuji Apple stand out a wee bit too much but they will blend into the Cherry and Hard Candy after a brief steep.
Derived from my Gummy Grapes, I wanted to add something more without breaking the Purple Grape profile. So I combined it with another bold but light flavor, Lychee!
Cap Sweet Lychee was the choice as it already has a candy property with something similar to a very light musk candy that goes well with the Grape.
Add sweetner if you want to, I did.
Delicious Grape Jelly Gummy!!
I tried creating a few grape recipes this year and they all ended up with a weird 'coiny'/copper aftertaste, so I almost gave up on grape.
This has perfect balance on the grape without leaving a weird aftertaste thanks to INW Grape and Jelly Candy Combo. This is a Delicious Grape Candy Shake and Vape that will leave any grape fans with a Smile!!
I dont think this one needs much of a explanation. Just mix it up if you like grape or gummy Candy!!
Whilst experimenting, I accidentally managed to come up with a pretty convincing Lilt!
To those of you not from the UK, Lilt is a delicious, fizzy pineapple and grapefruit drink made by the coca cola company:
I haven't had any for a long time and thought it was discontinued, but apparently you can still buy it (for that 'totally tropical taste').
Using a variation of the lemonade base I posted here: https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/131996#nice_raspberry_and_grapefruit_lemonade_by_harrynice
I added FA cold pressed lime and TPA champagne rather than FW lemonade so that it was light and the refreshing sharpness of the drink would come through.
Then I added the key ingredients (pineapple and grapefruit), gave it a mix and was very pleasantly surprised by just how much it tasted like the real thing...
This is good to go as S&V, but give it a week and it should settle into something magical!
It's winter time and everyone is snuggling up, getting warm in front of an open fire.
So what better than some cool refreshing summer drink flavoured vape juice?
I have been working on making fruit soda/lemonade type juices recently, and feel I have stumbled on some lovely recipes, using my patented (not patented) lemonade base paired with cocktails of different fruits.
For the base, I tried hard to create an illusion of 'fizz', which would also compliment additional fruit. I achieved this by combining sour, super sweet and koolada with one of the FW lemonades (normal or pink can be used)
I then experimented with various fruit combinations, and this one is my favourite so far (I will release other versions with different combinations)
Certified S&V, and very enjoyable! Please let me know what you think!
This is my take on what I think was Surreal Vapes' Stremonade. Created this quite a while ago now and I literally only had about a tank full of the original at the time. It was a juice one of my friend's got from the UK.
The description of the juice is as follows:
"Freshly squeezed lemonade poured into a refreshing cold glass of ice. Small chunks of macerated strawberries bring out the true strawberry lemonade flavour. Guaranteed to be the real deal."
Putting the "Lemon" in Lemonade:
Wow it took me a while to find the right Lemon for this until it dawned on me that TFA Fruit Circles could be the lemon I was looking for. Once I mixed up the first trial batch I knew I hit the nail on the head. After tweaking the percentage a few times I settled on 4%. The CAP Lemon Lime and TFA Sour was added to backup the profile and give it a little more depth.
Marrying the Strawberry and Lemon:
Having created a pretty decent Strawberry Lemonade in the past I was well aware of the challenge of finding the right kind of Strawberry flavour(s) to suit the respective Lemon to create the desired profile as well as having it not drown out in the distant background. Having said that, I knew my starting base had to be INW Strawberry Shisha as my ability to taste TPA Strawberry Ripe had sadly long gone at that stage. Strawberry Shisha, once I found it, gave me hope for creating strawberry vapes again and I found it's perfect partner in this profile with JF Sweet Strawberry. It was once again down to tweaking their percentages until I was happy and they formed a wonderful union with the Lemon profile. INW Raspberry I discovered a while back to be an excellent companion to really bring that Strawberry flavour forward.
When I was creating this I also recently discovered INW Cactus and it's juicy properties compliment this profile deliciously.
The OG was a reasonably sweet juice so the 0.5% CAP Super Sweet gets that aspects sorted.
TFA Marshmallow to round off all the rough edges Lemons bring to a mix.
Add koolant of choice at your desired percentage.
Please let me know your thoughts should this profile tickle your mental taste buds.
