A thick scoop of vanilla ice cream plunked down into a tall glass of sweet and tangy cherry soda. We all float down here.
Although, unlike the Paradise Cream, no one has asked for this discontinued as a one-shot by Chef's Flavours, here it is, anyway. This recipe was inspired by trying a soft drink called "Cheerwine" and imaging how it would be as a float. I needed a lot of candy cherry, so I pushed INW Cherries as far as could without getting medicinal off notes, then added as much FA Black Cherry as I could darken it with and still avoid that yuck. Still not enough cherry, but TFA Pomegranate worked very well to fill in the cherry to get where it needed to go without any issues. I used CAP Lemon Lime for the tart, citrusy quality of the soda. TFA Sweet And Tart served three purposes: More sweetness, more tartness, and that powdery aspect to try to emulate what bubbles would remain in the soda after ice cream was floated in it. You have to remember, this was before VT Fizzy Sherbet or FLV Citrus Soda existed. TFA VBIC was an easy route to ice cream, with TFA Whipped Cream the foamy part where ice cream meets soda. As with the Paradise Cream, I've been meaning to improve the recipe for some time now and then release the improved version... and just haven't gotten around to it. As with the Paradise Cream, when I do, it's definitely going to have the TFA VBIC replaced with LB's Vanilla Ice Cream. It might also a need touch of HS French Vanilla Ice Cream , and replacing TFA Whipped Cream with FLV's version. That combination of LB Vanilla Ice Cream, HS French Vanilla Ice Cream, and FLV Whipped Cream worked so well in TamVapes' Jacked Up Sundae. Of course that might take some rebalancing of the other ingredients, but I'm unlikely to abandon them, even for the likes of FLV CItrus Soda or VT Fizzy Sherbet. They WORK here. But until that all gets sorted out, I hope anyone who is interested enjoys the original recipe.
I took an old school blue raspberry technique (lemon+lime+berries) and jammed it, gummed it, candied it, sweetened it and pushed it to a point where I believe this is better than the commercial juice. The candies I added to this mix went impressively well with the fruits and made this more blue than I ever expected. I got that mixer feelings of, nothing is better and more satisfying mixing than the chance of something to go right and then it does. This is so much fun to vape so I had to share this lucky roll of a recipe. I am betting that the King Pazzo FA is the main transforming flavor because without it this recipe is not nearly as good or as blue.
Years ago there was these little jelly beans made by starburst called "Joosters" the pink ones were by far the best so here's my tribute to the little bastard.
pink guava by flv - flavorah were kind enough to send me a big haul of their concentrates for me to try and as soon as i smelt this it hit me instantly that it was the smell of a pink jooster, after tasting the concentrate my feeling was confirmed.
super simple recipe and super good tasting too! i have also experimented and added ws-23 to this, that too was a success.
if you enjoy candy recipes then you're probably going to enjoy this :)
FORTUNE FLAVORS THE BOLD!
Are you brave enough to try this? It's modeled after the tangy, sweet, and spicy frozen Mexican confection. Doesn't taste quite the same, but scratches the same itch for an icy spicy treat. I used both WS-23 and Polar Blast for a well-rounded inhale and exhale cooling, and lots of it.. For the spiciness of chamoy, there's FLV Heat and Apple Filling. The cinnamon in apple filling doesn't quite taste like cinnamon used so low with other strong ingredients, but it gives some body to the heat so it's not just disembodied capsaicin-type heat. The gooey apple part contributes to Jelly Candy and Sweet and Tart creating something reminiscent of the sweet and tangy part of chamoy. Jelly Candy also helps clean up some of CAP Sweet Mango's overripe nonsense. Super Sweet, like Apple Filling, also does double duty. Besides the obvious sweetening, it helps drag that Heat onto the lips and tongue and makes it linger, resulting a long-lasting fire and ice sensation. Finally the mangoes. I was surprised how much how much FLV Mango and CAP Sweet Mango it took stand up to all this other stuff, but with each new version I kept adding more and more until it worked. I also tried using VT Shisha Mango but it was too piney that didn't play well with the rest of the mix.
This recipe was made for a challenge, which you had to use TPA Papaya at 7% and TPA Rainbow Sherbet at 2.4%, the challenge was set by SydneyVapour.com in the DIY Downunder face book group. As part of that challenge, you were only allowed to use the TPA/TFA concentrates that are available from SydneyVapour.com. With those rules in place there was a great selection to chose from.
With the Papaya being the biggest player in this recipe you'd expect it to be over powering but it's not. The Papaya plays very nicely with all of his little companions. On the inhale the Papaya is slightly in the lead on a mild note, then his juicy friends are right behind him and all at the same time. It's a lovely moist and juicy, not so tropical inhale. The exhale is almost the same and you are left with a refreshing feeling. If I did have a TPA Meringue I would have used it at around .5% for a chewy center and also a small amount of sweetener would not have gone astray. But it is what it is and it's actually refreshing, I find myself picking it up and vaping on it just as you would pop a piece of gum or candy in your mouth for a refreshment. I see it as a Papaya flavored juicy fruit with a nice light bubblegum factor. Tested on an rda.
