How does only 1 percent of flavor concentrate deliver this much flavor?
This is "The Chosen One"
Over the years I have been mixing I have come to undertsand that there isn't a percentage rule as such when it comes to DIY eLiquid creation.
After seeing a peer release a "1 percenter" recipe recently I was inspired to try my luck at one my self.
I began with the thought of trying to chase a basic Strawberries and cream and as usual got side tracked as a picture went past my eyes of a toffee dipped strawberry lol. So I "extra" challenged myself to bring that into this recipe as well.
This is how the micro evolution of how "The Chosen One" was created.
There is only one strawberry I know of that will work at this low %.
Flavorah Alpine Strawberry - IMO a maximum point is 0.2% and after a couple of days you get a nice wild strawberry flavor but past that point of 0.2% I get green dirt, but it works here well.
That Toffee is more like a toffee you would experience on a toffee apple. (no apple notes though).
Vape Train Hard Crack Toffee - is excellent in giving that glossy toffee mouthfeel & sweetness but it's temperamental and IMO only works this low for this application and does well.
The combination of Flavorah Sweet Coconut and Flavorah Sweet Cream not only helps this profile with a lovely creaminess but also helps with the body and textual mouthfeel of this overall vape. This is not coconut heavy at all rather it contrasts the texture of the strawberry and helps the creaminess here very well.
You could add sweetener if you like but I enjoy the sweet authenticity of the strawberry in this and don't want to risk muting out the cream.
A lovely efficient recipe, so simple yet so complex in flavor at only just a total of 1% of flavoring.
Steep time 3 days (ok off the shake)
Tested on a Wotofo Recurve RDA 0.2ohm Alien Single SST coil at 60w
I hope you enjoy this just as much as I enjoyed creating this recipe, but let me know what you thought in the comments below.
Seriously if you like a solid recipe that works give it a go!
Cheers for reading this far, now go and get mixing!

My first experience with Hard Crack Toffee, it smells super potent so starting at 1, LB ice cream is a short steep and very good imo, boosted the vanilla with Holy Vanilla and give the cream a leg up with the FA, added CCGC as an after thought as I thought it needed a touch of crunch, Tastes good off the shake... hopefully it doesn't get too heavy 😏
This is a hot YUMMY mess - and named after a phrase coined by the most fabulous @leilani
On the inhale you get a creamy sweet caramel ice cream that transitions to caramel popcorn in the middle and finishes with a toffee and graham cracker note.
Best on an RDA at 60 - 65 wattts
Made for Mixin in the kitchen popcorn episode
Butterschotch ripple and Creme Brulee create a thick creamy caramel ripple ice cream. VT creme brulee is a really nice flavor it has less burnt dark brown sugar than other brulees and leans more toward a caramel the creme is also less eggy. FW butterscotch ripple is more of an ice cream and works well here
kettle corn* AP and caramel popcorn create that cracker jack type of popcorn I wanted here . caramel popcorn is really bringing the nut notes with some darker sweetness and is light on the popcorn. The kettle corn brings more of a buttery caramel note. AP is used for more of that popcorn texture and supports the kettle corn
toffee is needed to add some depth and supports the finish in this mix along with graham cracker
I was hoping to get this done with just one concentrate but taking the hard cracked toffee too high resulted in too much coffee, I tried FW salted caramel and it was too rough by the time I got it high enough for the same caramel taste so I chose chefs choice/CCW and it worked out perfectly, there was a slight fresh cream/milk note in the original so I added 1% fresh cream. The 1st revision I made had 2% super sweet in it but the sweetness was at the front and in the original it came after the coffee/caramel so I reduced the super sweet to 0.75 and added the marshmallow which seems to layer the sweetener in the same way as the original does. This is 95% there if I fucked with the %’s a bit more I could get it 100% but it would be fiddly and so much of this clone/remix game comes down to perception and you can’t please everyone but I’m happy enough to put it out there and say “can you do better?” :)
I know there is probably some difference in concentrates between the original and the remix but it’s that close why be picky 😆
Stixx Mixx Butter Rum Cavendish is one of my favorite NET’s. I used this to create a delicious tobacco dessert vape. It has a great bite free taste. It tastes of Butter Rum and Jamaican Rum.
To help with the dessert feel, I used Holy Holy Grail, an RY4 Type concentrate. Flv Toffee really helps to build on the toffee flavor, but the Vape Train Hard Crack Toffee really gives that extra bite to the caramel and toffee combination, it gives the taste of real hard toffee. The Vape Train Devon Cream has this warm butter note that goes perfectly with Caramel and Toffee. This really helps blend all the flavors together. To top it off, FW Butter Pecan adds the extra delicious flavor.
This is delicious after the shake, but for optimal taste, a week steep would be best because of the Devon Cream.
Optional: add .25 to .5% of AP, this will help bring more of the nuttiness notes out.
Pandan is an edible plant that is used widely in South Asian cooking to give a fragrance to sweet dishes in particular, and often added to rice as well. (maybe a sticky rice!). Pandan is also often used with nuts and coconut and in this recipe plays with the coconut and toffees to make a nice dessert. The coconut is quite subtle here. If cooling try 0.2% WS23 and 0.2% polar blast together for inhale and exhale cooling.
