NOT A SNV(there's a reason why I changed the recipe name from "S'mich" to "20-Day Steepwich"!! Trust me on this...
NOTES & B.S.:
The OBVIOUS choice for the peanut butter was TFAs. It's just such a great flavor that can be easily overtaken at low percentages. So I cranked that shit WAY up! TFA PB lacks(to me) the roasted peanut flavor I taste in real peanut butter. Enter FLV Peanut Butter and you've got yourself one excellent peanut butter base to build upon.
The result of adding the next 2 flavorings is a thick/creamy, salty peanut butter. Anyone who loves peanut butter vapes knows there is always something lacking. And my mix was no different. My peanut butter definitely needed an additional shove in the right direction. And I found a GREAT use for VT Avocado Cream in the process. The way this concentrate thickened that peanut butter up is nothing short of miraculous! This flavoring is vital to this recipe. It can't be subbed & it can't be omitted. Add to that FW Salted Caramel, and you've got one nicely rounded-out peanut butter. JIF, anyone?
For the strawberry portion of my sandwich, I wanted something a little different. I didn't really want a "jam". I wanted more of a strawberry pie-filling vibe. This nuance is what makes VT Glazed Strawberries a very necessary part of this recipe. It can't be subbed. It can't be omitted. I added to that CAP's Sweet Strawberry for both sweetness and a syrupy quality.
FA Joy=my bread. I'm not a huge user of Joy because I'm one of those people who tastes beer. But if you aren't like me, feel free to crank your Joy up to 0.5-1%.
I didn't add sweetener to my final version, as I found-for me-sweetener killed my peanut butter texture(no matter how low or which sweeteners I used) & killed the "tingly" feeling on my tongue left by the VT Glazed Strawberries. Textures, to me, are what make this recipe unique and memorable. I encourage you to try this 1st without sweeteners(at 20 day's steep of course). If you find you need it? Add it. But don't blame me if your PB texture disappears :)
I've found that around 48 watts, this flavor has a nice balance of where I want it to be in terms of no one flavor taking the lead(0.4 ohm flatwire coil). I kept my airflow 1/4-1/3 open. At around 60 watts, it's more on the salty side. And the peanut butter is more of a salty "peanut" flavor, as opposed to a peanut butter. At 75 watts, the sweetness kicks back in and the strawberry is more dominant. The recipe morphs alot dependent upon what temperature you kick it at. Have fun playing around & finding the setting you want. I found that to be a fun part of vaping it!
FYI: Unsteeped the recommended amount of days, this will taste very weird(VT Glazed Strawberries needs to steep. I can't even describe the wretchedness of this flavor when fresh.). I nearly trashed this whole recipe after I'd tasted it fresh. I felt there was NO way a horrible flavor could steep into how I wanted it to steep. Imagine my shock and surprise when this actually turned out the way I'd intended!!
VG recommended is 75%. This eliquid is meant to be thick and the percentages will stand out even at a high VG like 75%.
As always, I hope you enjoy this. It was quite a tricky recipe to work out. But when I finally settled on the flavors I wanted, the percentages just fell into place.
I ask that you don't use my recipe for commercial profit. I also ask that you don't share it to any other websites. I thank you for respecting me in my wishes.
I continue to worship the ground that the E-Juice Makers crew walk on. Their knowledge, work, and generosity is far superior to my own. And yet, they welcome me like one of their own. I love them more than they know!!
