This sort of came together as a bit of blind experimentation.

I've been on an unapologetic tobacco kick for a bit now, and I've really been riding Tatanka as an anchor point for myself with those mixes. It's sorta sweet and plays well with others, which had made it extremely forgiving to tie it into recipes.

Red Burley is just such a mutable base that it felt like the "right" place to go to tie in with the tatanka tobacco in an agreeable way.

Connecticut shade is an odd duck to me, there's a ton of depth there, but every time I use it, I feel like I've gotta take a leap of faith with it because the smell totally hides how tasty it can be when used to accent a mix.

With that, the horchata was chosen to help add the cinnamon spice notes and a touch of body in tandem with the magic that is sweet coconut, which was chosen for both the flavor and the density of it. I wanted a bit of weight to the mix along with that sweet coconut flavor.

Finally FLV smooth vanilla acts as something of a bridge between the tobaccos and the coconut-horchata mixture.

Pretty simple premise.

@ID10-T charged us with making a recipe that recalls a memory of a past Autumn. I have been working in kitchens for most of my life, and I love to play around with food. Last Autumn I made a bread pudding for work that included a whiskey flambeed green apple compote. I loved this dessert when I made it, and may yet make it again ahead of Thanksgiving.

Anyhow, this is my attempt at recreating this in an eliquid.

FE french toast and FA zeppola make up the bulk of the "bread" in my bread pudding. Conveniently the French toast brings along some extra spices, sweetness, and eggs.

FLV eggnog is helping in two ways, it is broadening the custard, but it is more importantly doubling down on the spices needed to sell the Autumnal bread pudding.

INW custard has one job here, and it's really straight forward, make sure the body of the custard is rich enough to stand up to the bread, apples, and whiskey.

FW hazelnut is just helping normalize the bready notes

PUR country apple is cooked apples, and absolutely necessary here. It has the sweetness you'd look for along with the "cooked" apples rather than something like FA Fuji which tastes much more "raw".

TFA Kentucky bourbon carries the flavor I want and doesn't have the bite you'd get from FLV bourbon, which is perfect for this application. Cooking with booze, especially flambeed the flavor remains but none of the alcoholic bite.

I've only had time to give this a shake and vape test, so I'm gambling a bit here but if this stays close to the shake and vape flavor without falling apart it should be a nice easy Autumn vape.

Taking inspiration from an absolute wizard, Mr @alfredpudding, I decided to tackle a tobacco recipe that wasn't so much about capturing a specific flavor but instead about capturing a memory or a feeling. This boozy/smokey/chocolaty recipe is meant to capture the feeling, or foster some nostalgia for an evening sitting around a campfire sipping at a bottle of whiskey and maybe toasting a few s'mores.

Not quite so elegant a solution as the 3 piece masterwork that is Cabin, we've kind of got a lot of moving parts here so let's try to break them down.

SC Old Captain - Really the root of the recipe all started here, it's a tobacco alright, but really it's so incredibly chocolaty that I knew where I wanted to go with it the second I tasted it. It's still got a bit of tobacco behind it but pushed higher than the rest to really allow that chocolate to cut through into the final product

FA 7 Leaves Ultimate - It's dry and sorta spicy, almost bringing the smell of the forest or firewood with it.

FLV Red Burley & FLV Cured Tobacco - The tobacco base needed to be emboldened to keep up with the booze and chocolate so bringing in this combo was a suggestion courtesy of @NoWar, and it absolutely works without steamrolling everything else in the mix.

FA Irish Cream - Partially aiding Kentucky Bourbon and partially helping keep the recipe from drying out to the point of being more reminiscent of a desert than a campfire.

TFA Kentucky Bourbon - Booze, but with little focus on the burn and more on the flavor that lingers on your palate.

FA Vanilla Bourbon - Just a touch of vanilla to help the chocolate along.

TFA Toasted Marshmallow - Adding a bit of sweetness but, more importantly, just a hint of smoke to help really hammer the point home.

The concept is simple. Everything here that is not building the fruit body contains either Diacetyl, Acetyl Propionyl, and/or Acetoin. All those delicious DAAPy things that make creams and custards good. Past that it was all a matter of making the pun on pear skin work.

What we end up with is a nice rich custard with sweet bits of pear mixed in.

Pass 2:
Increased pears by 0.5% and 1% for TFA and FA respectively. trying to push it enough to stand up to the cream.
Added 1% FA Fuji

It's a pretty straightforward proposition, right?

Fruit loops in milk. Common as it comes on the shelves of a vape shop, but it was one of the flavor profiles that made me switch to vaping and I had to take a crack at it. This is the end result. A recipe that I don't feel needs any steeping, but for those sensitive to the pledgy side of TFA fruit circles, 7-10 days aughta knock that out.

There's nothing groundbreaking about the flavors I used here, but a quick breakdown anyway:

TFA and CAP silver line fruit circles combine to make an overall more "full" fruit loops cereal base. CAP's offering doesn't bring the furniture polish with it and helps tame that aspect of TFA's.

FA meringue is the fast track to selling cereal milk. Thinning out the cream base and adding a touch of a toasted/grainy note to the cereals.

TFA Bavarian cream and vanilla swirl make up the rest of the cream base. Without the meringue this would be too thick, but the softening effect of vanilla swirl helps again to pare down the lemony sharpness of TFA's fruit rings and the overall combination is both tasty and well rounded without taking the recipe over.

The idea was pretty simple here, I absolutely loved clove cigarettes, but I didn't want to try to clone that experience per se. I was totally okay selling out the ash and bitter notes to just embrace the aromatics and the sweeter noted inherent to the clove, and the tobaccos I chose were meant to embrace and enhance that.

FLV Turkish is bringing along a bit of body and some complementary spices.

FLV Cured is bringing some aromatics and some tobacco authenticity

FA Soho is nutty, kind of sweet, and helps marry everything here together without aiming strictly at a "cigarette" tobacco recipe but something enjoyable and accessible.

This began as a simple idea to take @EdibleMalfunction's love of hops, @eyemakepizza's love of fizzy sherbet, and my penchant for Dragonfruit and to create a recipe together with those as our anchor points. On the face of it, it sounded like a bad idea, but it came together very quickly, and upon reflection it really makes perfect sense to me that these flavors blended together to make a truly brilliant sweet, lightly fruity, and refreshingly piney refreshing vape.

The recipe hinges on so many things going just right, but happily the balance was key to making this an honestly delicious mix.

Juniper Gin can be a bully, the piney notes are in full force with this flavor, so keeping it low was integral to success, especially while pairing it with the Yakima Hops.

Yakima Hops was an obligate inclusion when combining our individual interests into a single recipe, we didn't keep it near so low as the gin as we did want the crisp hoppy notes to be a major factor in the recipe.

Fizzy Sherbet again an obligate inclusion, but one that brings a citrus bent to things and helped steer the decision toward using FW Blood Orange to round out the citrus compliment to our crisp gin and hops combo.

FW Blood Orange was chosen because it complements the sherbet's citrus notes while avoiding the conventional trappings of a Gin and Tonic. Adding a bit more sweetness and an undercurrent of orange that helps carry the body of the recipe.

INW Pitaya is my compulsory pick, but we toned down the usage to 1% to avoid leaning too heavily on the inherent weirdness of INW's pitaya and just let the sweet, sort of strange fruit notes stand among the pillars of the recipe to accent the brilliance of other flavors rather than as a focal point.

Everything comes together to create a recipe unlike anything else I've vaped to date, crisp, refreshing, inherently sweet, and a true melding of our individual tastes to make something none of us might have ever chased down without the others.

This's me taking a single offhand comment by @humanpuck and turning it into a recipe. Something was mentioned about either @ID10-t or I making a recipe based on the Demigorgon from Stranger Things.

I took a purely conceptual route here, which is probably best when discussing the how's and why's of making a monster into a vape. That said, it really did turn into a monster in its own right.

WF SC Starfruit - the face of our titular demigorgon. Pretty, and tasty, fruit for the face of a hideous beast.

FA Blood Orange - The monster is, or should be, just about consistently soaked in the blood of its various victims, so a tasty bit of citrus from blood orange made as much sense as anything to me.

INW Shisha Strawberry & FA Red Touch - Syrupy red strawberries working in lock step with the blood orange to really sell the viscous "blood" aspect.

FW Waffle & LB Belgian Waffle - I sort of struggled to give this mix a bit of body at first, thinking on it for quite a while before it dawned on me: Eleven fucking LOVES Eggos. While this is not exactly an eggo, what it actually ends up as is a lightly cinnamon spiced waffle strong enough to stand up to the heavy fruit syrup piled upon it.

The Candy/Jammy Wizard is really just blending the fruits together into a cohesive whole, but at the same time "Wizard" does fit the motif of a fantastical scenario.

A Co-worker put me up to this. His "favorite juice of all time" is called the Strawberry by Drip wich. Traditionally commercial juice, and cloning aren't really my thing, but I agreed to take a crack at the profile. I've no desire to actually clone the original, but the profile was at least potentially tasty so, why the hell not?

The Ice cream base here is shamelessly stolen from @eyemakepizza. I know it's not going to be the one in a commercial juice, but I wanted to make this decadent without falling into oversweet, and the ben and jerry's esque rich creamy concoction the pizza man put together is perfect for that.

The waffle base is pretty straightforward, both TFA belgian and FW waffle have holes in their overall profile. neither is quite right on their own, but by their powers combined you end up with a pretty accurate and tasty rendition of a lightly vanilla'd and slightly maple'd up waffle. maybe not as fluffy as a real Belgian waffle, but for the purposes of a breakfast treat being used as a sandwich around some ice cream and strawberry syrup it works quite well.

The strawberry combo is simple, INW shisha strawberry is a syrupy mess, strongly reminiscent in my mind of nestle's strawberry syrup. To boost that up, and give it a bit of body without venturing off into a full on strawberry Red touch works quite well to bring some balance to the whole ordeal.

A half baked attempt at a crepe that rides the border between a sweet breakfast and dessert.

The idea came together when staring at the list of new flavors coming in and decided to jump right in on something since just about everything was recommended rather highly.

The Peanut butter, Hazelnut, and caramel toffee combine to make a much more authentic peanut butter flavor than I had initially expected, but the faults of each individual flavor fall to the wayside and produce a harmonious mess that would make Peter Pan jealous.

Banana creme provides a really nice rich and creamy banana flavor to the mix. Not a cooked banana per se, but not the raw banana slices you'd get from PUR banana either.

Cinnamon danish swirl does what it does best and adds a little bit of sweet cinnamon to the mix. the amount of richness and body of the other flavors ensures that this doesn't overwhelm the mix.

the crepe is a delightfully effective soft bakery note to hold it all together, just like it would at the breakfast table.

This is the first tobacco recipe I ever actually enjoyed. It is very true to a Djarum black. The only thing it is really missing is the ash. Honestly I don't know that missing that is really a bad thing, but given the inspiration it is the only real criticism I think I can leave for this recipe. This is potent enough to use in a pod, but not overpowering or lacking in balance when used for direct lung

Tested on: Vandy Vape Paradox Single 6 wrap 2x26/36 3mm ID fused clapton 65w There’s a bit of runts here, but not in a *bad* way. It’s definitely creamy, and it’s definitely a banana, but it’s not quite a natural banana. It is at the same time really enjoyable. It’s sort of like you took a ton of those fake banana candies and blended them into a DQ blizzard or equivalent milkshake kind of thing. I don’t really get anything super eggy here, but it is a weighty cream with some very sweet banana candy hanging out as well. All in all it’s enjoyable if not the very most accurate banana recipe I’ve ever tried. I believe the culprit here is the TFA banana cream, which I say having also pushed it fairly high in recipe. I still dig it, and I totally get why the INW custard is here, but I feel like you could probably adjust the recipe to live more on something like the VT banana custard and perhaps SA banana flambe with a more complex custard-y base to really get to a fully authentic banana pudding/banana custard type recipe. All in all for 3 ingredients meant to steep basically 0 days this accomplishes the job and it is enjoyable. This feels near what I’d expect a commercial banana custard to be, just short on a lot of sweetener. I dig it and I could see throwing it together again in a pinch if I wanted something for a day or two with no steep. For the stated purpose of bananas, heavy custard/cream and no waiting, it’s very good, but I think a bit of patience and a little more work could really elevate this into an absolute “nana cream” killer.

This is really good, like unreasonably close to Hawaiian punch, good. I get something sorta chemical-ish up front, somewhere close to the vaguely plastic taste of some store brand Hawaiian punches. I feel that is likely tied into the cherry, but it's hard to say exactly. However, that little abnormal bite blends into the actual body of the main profile in a manner that is very forgivable. I enjoy this overall, I don't totally understand how you got here, but the more I look at the recipe, the more it feels like it all makes sense. Cherries, pineapple, peach, guava... it's all at least logically in the vicinity of the flavor you were aiming for. The only other possible point of critique I might have is that while the flavor is right where I want it, the mouth feel seems off somehow, a little too dry, like there might still be a bit of undissolved powder in the punch bowl and each vape is like getting the last sip of your cup where the powder settled. All in all, the flavor is really on point here and the complaints sound way worse than they are.

I definitely understand why you've named it as such, though I don't quite get the separation you claim. The berry is jammy up front, but it has a means of carrying through the entire vape, and the lemon sharpness comes in right at the fore though the flavor itself doesn't exactly appear until the back end. It's sort of like a slightly sharp berry jam that reveals that there's a nice little bit of sharp citrus underneath as you exhale, This is right up my alley in the way it plays off its own weirdness and manages to stay interesting the whole time. I really dig what you've done here.

So, above all here, the Lychee is cutting through the mix. I can see where the rose is happening, and the cream is clear, but a bit subdued here. It's not off in any way really, but a little less of a fully formed ice cream, and more of a heavy, not-as-yet set cream. The light, delicate and floral flavors here are sitting rather comfortably in the cream here. I can absolutely see how the floral and the fruit flavors are intermingling to make a delightfully rich, yet delicate combination of flavors. I can't see this being something I want to vape every day, but something I enjoy on occasion, this is excellent.

It's creamy, it's sweet, there's vanilla, and there's cinnamon. It's firing on all cylinders in those regards. Something is just a little off about the "churro". I can tell there's something approximating the churro here, but it isn't quite clicking for me. might be that the texture isn't distinct from the ice cream, sorta like you found a little orphaned bit of churro in the bottom of the dish that's been sitting under the ice cream for 15 minutes and is fully saturated with ice creamy goodness. There's nothing here I actually dislike, and now I kinda want a churro. That's probably a good sign

I dig what you've done on a broad scale, you've taken 3 things that have absolutely no business being together and made something that is at the very least palatable. I'm conflicted though about it, because I feel like I want "more". More white chocolate, more dirty tobacco-y stuff, this for me feels like the pineapple took the wheel and never let go leaving the VT Love and HHG RY4 to hang out in support but without a whole lot of room to shine. I feel like their contribution is primarily in the textural side of the recipe and less on the actual flavor. Making for a relatively sharp, yet somehow creamy, pineapple with hints of caramel and vanilla that linger on the palate but don't assert themselves until the pineapple has finally cleared out. I'd love to see a somewhat more robust version of this concept that allows all 3 elements their time in the sun, though I fear that the more balance that comes to the recipe, the less it will work in practice.
