Made for Fresh03 Saturday show - we were challenged to make a "Fair - ified" mix and use more then 5 flavors to create a profile (as a tribute to the juice fairy Jennifer Winstead) . I went after a little Debbie's oatmeal cream pie mix with some raisins and light cinnamon . https://youtu.be/2YQHvHRczNs
This was tested at 60 watts on a reaload S - off the shake it is a full body, sweet cream vanilla mix with some light oat notes on the back - as this steeps the bakery notes, and raisin notes will come forward a bit more and fill out
for the cream I wanted that super sweet make your teeth hurt cream filling So FLV frosting, and WF gooeey marshmallow work perfect for that - along with cream filling ad vanilla cream extra for some additional body
Sadly there really is not a solid oatmeal flavor that I have come across - but the combination of oatmeal cookie RF and Oats and cream does have an oat note on the finish The body of the cookie needed to be filled out so Sugar cookie , FA cookie support the body
Baker touch adds some body along with some cinnamon and brown sugar notes
Red dates is a brighter then a cooked raisin so the addition of fig helps to darken it a bit - along with some molasses
A simplified version of this could be achieved with RF Oatmeal cookie, WF Oats and cream, WF buttercream frosting, CAP sugar cookie and LB bakers touch
Perique is usually described as a strong, peppery blending tobacco. I’ve done a straight Perique NET, and a few Virginia/Perique NETs, and while I see where the “peppery” description could be applied, it always came across as more of a fermented, dark fruitiness with a bit of a kick. That’s what I was going for here. Not anything that’s going to make you hate your life because it kicks so hard, but enough of a bite to make you notice.
Brandy/Red Dates/Liquid Amber in there to try to get some of that funky dark fruit. Almost like a raisin or prune wine, if that’s something you want to imagine (I think I want to imagine it.)
For the tobaccos I went with Dark for Pipe because it’s got a bit of that fruitiness that’s already got a bit of funk to it, and also adds a good kick. Black for Pipe because it’s required to be in every recipe of mine. Also because it has a dark fruit and hint of pepper-ness to it. It’s all about packing a punch. Red Burley to bring a bit more body and bass notes along with some sort of moist earthiness. Moist is the best kind of earthiness. Mmmm.
So anyway, my goal was to make a better tasting Perique than anything that is currently sold as a single flavor of the same name. Looking at you, FA. Instead of hating yourself for picking up that flavor, just mix yourself up a better Perique. Or... wait for it.... Abetta Perique. God damn I’m clever.
Fig and dark berry tobacco.
My original recipe https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/94745#honey_i_figged_up_the_bacco_by_ebc88. I used Fig @2% and didn't tame all the anise/licorice off that it brings along with it. Then I seen this recipe https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/126455#concrete_newtons_by_alfredpudding, and thought I would give VT Fig another shot. It pairs perfectly with VT Red Dates & the FLV Milk & Honey adds some creaminess and sweetness to the fruits. Flv Native & INW Black for Pipe pair excellently together, & the INW keeps the FLV tobaccos from doing the boomerang fading thing they like to do when they steep. Black for Pipe also has some really great berry notes mixed in with the pipe style tobacco. The VT FIG & Red Dates really bring those notes out.
I enjoyed this fresh but INW tobaccos need 10-14 days to steep. So they fully come through in the mix.

On the ihnhale you get the cran-raisin that transitions to the a sweet creamy vanilla yougurt that lingers . This is pretty spot on
for the cran raisin - Red dates and cranberry work together and they come through on the inhale , but the cranberry needed to be pushed a bit high to get the slight tart note
White chocolate and love along with the greek yougrt come through on the back and leave that exact creamy coating in your mouth .
A little while back I got myself trapped in another Boba’s Bounty hole. It was really a dark place to be because I spent so much time trying to clone a juice I didn’t even like. So to get me out of that insane hole, I decided to take that profile, and do it how I would do it. And, more importantly, make something that I would actually like. That’s what this is.
It’s a very middle of the road recipe. No real top notes to wear down your tongue. Not too sweet. Very full flavor. There’s a dessert/bakery aspect, obviously, but there’s also some decent smoky tobacco notes. It walks the line between several different things. It has been a bit of a challenge for me to let it steep long enough to see the places it goes. Right after mixing, the Gold Ducat was pretty apparent. It had a stronger smoky vibe. After about a week the graham cracker, Butter Pecan, and Red Dates started to take over a bit more. It’s been a while since I’ve been excited about a recipe, and this one has me pretty excited.
I think these people will enjoy this recipe:
Don’t let the name fool you, it’s not a super smoky mix. I just like naming recipes after Iron and Wine songs.
This was supposed to be a collaboration with Concrete River. Unfortunately the only adjustment my first version needed was moving VT Fig from .25% to .75%. If you're a strange person that wants to vape a Fig Newton replica, this is your recipe. As much as Concrete would like to say he had nothing to do with this creation, he was the person that introduced and recommended using VT Red Dates. It's used to fill out the inner dimension of our factory-pressed cookies with fruit paste perfectly. If you're a Newton connoisseur you know they're thicker than a snicker, so I used JF Biscuit, CAP Sugar Cookie, and FA Cookie to get you there. Then I added the AP version of cinnamon with FLV Cinnamon Crunch for the tiniest hint of spice in the background. I know that VT Fig is pretty much black licorice in a bottle, but after steeping at .75% I assure you there's no black licorice in these bars. It's essential for accuracy.
A golden, rich, sticky, gooey pudding. It needs a good steep so I advise you mix it and forget it somewhere for a good while.
FW Yellow Cake/FLV Cream/CC Deon Cream = The rich, moist, pudding cake.
FW Burtterscoth/VT Golden Syrup/FW Maple Pecan = the sweet, gooey, stickiness.
VT Red Dates/FA Cherryl = The depth and darkness of the pudding. I like the twist we get from the drop of black cherry, it gives an unexpected accent to the whole profile.
Enjoy, be queer & vape on!
