My husband loves the grapefruit gummy candies from Eddie's World, so I am doing my best to replicate them. They come in both pink and white grapefruit options, both are good, so this recipe will probably end up somewhere between the two flavors. It actually turned out pretty well and he loves it.
CAP Jelly candy was the choice for texture and base.
VTA Sugar Cane was used for the natural taste of the granular sugar coating, but I kept it low to avoid any carmelized taste.
CAP Grapefruit makes up the main sweeter part of the grapefruit profile, and I used IN White grapefruit to provide the zesty higher notes.
NN Citric Acid added the perfect amount of tartness, without being bitter.
I sweetened with equal parts of NN Stevia and NN Monk Fruit Extract. Feel free to sub the 2 of those with a sweetener of your choice, but this recipe does need sweetener to be a candy.
Mixed at 70VG, SNV, but better the next day.
This is a Dominican recipe, and it smells terrible, but tastes good. It has that marvelous funk that is found in some tropical fruits, but none of the ingredients really stand out. If you don't like the funk, this recipe is not for you. I love that tropical funk and ended up going through my entire 15ml tester in one day. This might be interesting combined with a sweet cream, or condensed milk as is used in the original recipe.
The base of the recipe is the yam, but it is not a dominate flavor.
The top notes are provided by the fruits.
I chose the HS banana because I wanted a green banana to mimic the plantain in the original recipe, rather than a candy banana flavor.
The guava gives that tropical funk.
I wanted cinnamon, but wanted to keep it in the background, so I used CAP cinnamon sugar.
Tropical recipes frequently use sugar cane syrup as a sweetener, so I used VT sugar cane to add additional sweetness.
Here is the original recipe:
I have experimented with this at different wattage, and it seems best around 20 watts in a MTL device, much to my surprise.
Sweet black tea and coconut cream
While not the most ambitious profile to go tackle, this was one of my first public recipes posted and pulled from ATF. I felt the need to go back to it just to see how I would approach it now and I have to say with the help of newer flavors.
As much as I am not a fan of FLV Sweet Coconut, I do really love FA Coconut and how well they both blend into creams. When I think of recipes with creamy coconut in them I think of Leche de Coco by hashslingingslashur, so I went with them at the same ratio but turned down a bit. Although weak, TFA Sweet Tea is still my favorite for straight up black tea. I have been messing around with this combination with VT Sugar Cane for a few mixes and haven't been disappointed yet. VT Sugar Cane makes it a little darker, sweeter and even a little more earthy. After testing a lot of cream layers I decided to go with CAP NY Cheesecake and FA Bavarian Cream. Working with Folkart and Alfred on multiple recipes, there is no denying those fuckers are straight up, unapologetically crema bavarese crazy, and for good reason. I used NY Cheesecake to fill out some of the missing texture and weigh it down a little more, but I didn't expect it to add as much to the coconut layer like it does. I wish I had more to say about why that flavor works in here but somehow it does.
.25% CAP SS if needed... probably needed.
A valentines day cocktail - Sweet strawberry on the inhale that transitions to the slight tart bright citrus & rhubarb finish
best vaped on an RDA at 50 - 60 watts
This was made on FRESH 03 fundraiser https://www.theguardiansfoundation.org/
I like the mix of a tart and sweet in a cocktail and this mix does just that
Rhubarb compote is a slightly sweet thick almost syrup rhubarb paired with glazed strawberry create that sweet simple syrup of the mix.
sweet and sour rhubarb adds that back sour note along with some of the fizzy sherbet for those additional citrus notes
fuji apple adds some more bright top notes and inherit sweetness
sugar cane adds that darker sweetness of the sugar cover rim of a martini glass
The most fruitful, delectable authentic fruit profile that I've not only tasted but also created. From the level of juiciness of the fruits to the balance of the sweetness ? the mouthfeel of the Popsicle, this has been a profile that I have delicately crafted with a passion down to the last lick to the stick.
FE Mango - is the most delicious base mango flavor that has helped to deliver a genuine punch of flavor from the very start of the vape here.
FA Juicy Strawberry Has delivered the nearest to perfect pairing with this mango and really dances beautifully in this.
VTA - Pear Halves is used lightly as a delicate touch to offer a syrupyness that assists really well with the texture of the fruits and adds that syrupy coating on the Popsicle as it melts in your mouth.
VTA Sugar Cane assists with the balance of authentic fruit sweetness.
INW Mint Mix - This was a difficult little one to tame. It was necessary though as this is what gives this profile the freshness and slight cool yet amazing real feel of this.
A lot of care to find the right yogurt was taken and for those creamy smooth notes of the Capella I couldn't go past it when paired with the WF Frozen Yogurt the balance is on point.
The magic here is "The LICK", from the fresh amazing mouthfeel of the fruits down to that lick of the stick this is a recipe I am proud to suggest to you to "Lick This !"
I enjoy this at 65w on My Hellvape Rebirth RDA with a SST Fused clapton reading at 0.15 3mm 6 wraps
Let' me know what you thought of this, I'm sure this will be one to enjoy for a long time :)
