A rich, dark chocolate RY4

I love Cardinal by @Fear. I could vape it every day. Not all day, but I'd be perfectly happy to wake up to a tank filled with Cardinal every morning. One of the things I love about that simple, three ingredient recipe is all of its nuances and complexities. One of those is chocolate, something about the combination of Red Burley and the subtle coffee notes in Holy Holy Grail vaguely remind me of delicious dark chocolate. This is outlining that blurry corner of the surveillance video in which chocolate makes an appearance and hitting ENHANCE. Add some sweet FLV Milk Chocolate, but not too much, we don't want Hershey's syrup here. ENHANCE. HS Australian Chocolate, there's that dark chocolate, but not too much, we don't want it too nutty. ENHANCE. BF Chocolate Truffle, but not too much, we don't want to want it too dry. Mmmmm. There it is. Satisfaction.

Shake & Vape certified, even better after two weeks.

Everyone knows a Martini is gin (FA Gin) and vermouth (FW Martini + FA Bitter Wizard) that usually has an olive in it.

Did you know a Dirty Martini is a martini that also has olive brine in it?

A Pickletini is similar, but uses pickle brine.

A Gibson is a martini with a cocktail onion instead of an olive.

OoO Pickle is a pickle flavor with an odd oniony note.

Ergo, Pickle Gibson.

Shaken, not stirred, with WS-23. Garnish with a twist of INW Lemon Mix and an FLV Basil leaf. Cheers!

Big thanks to @Tamberina for encouraging words after trying an unfinished version of this, @ConcreteRiver for pointing me in the direction of FW Martini and helping to finalize the recipe, and @MattDGTL for turning Mr. Gibson into a Pickle.

Mix the tobaccos two days in advance, then add the Pickle. Shake and IMMEDIATELY vape. Tastes like collard greens, just like mama used to make.

Blueberry and Acai covered in dark chocolate

FLV Acai is an interesting flavor. The room note on this thing is ridiculous. Standalone vaping it at 1%, bystanders are straight-up walking into a dense cloud made of Brookside Acai and Blueberry chocolates. But it doesn't quite taste that way to the vaper. Everything else here is an attempt to bring the vape more in line with that room note. Half of FLV Acai is a natural tart, dark berry flavor that tastes kind of like a combination of blueberries, cranberries, and pomegranate. FW Blueberry brings it more in line with that sweet candied inside of a Brookside. The other side of FLV Acai is a drier cocoa note. FLV Milk Chocolate tastes like Hershey's chocolate syrup by itself, but that cocoa side of Acai does a pretty good job of turning that into a dark chocolate candy coating. I don't much like to go the lazy "just add CAP Super Sweet and call it a day" route, but I think the way the very condensed sweetness yet still somewhat tart inside of a Brookside actually tastes really makes a strong case for it this time. It doesn't hurt the chocolate, either. Finally, it's a candy recipe. Deal with it. Sub TFA Sweetener at 1% or FW Sweetener at 0.5%. Or increase it up to 0.5% if you're a Splenda fan. Or leave it out if you value your fertility and don't want to vape those scary preservatives. Try FLV Sweetness, if you want. Whatever.

A word about authenticity. I'm going to call this a Brookside Acai and Blueberry-inspired vape. You'll never get a truly authentic Brookside because those tarter berry flavors are going to come at you first, followed by a dark chocolatey finish, instead of getting the chocolate first and then that fruity middle that also lingers longer than the chocolate. So, at best, it's an inside-out Brookside. Maybe a Brookside that's already been chewed up a bit? Finally, I wanted to keep it simple and just highlight this fascinating flavor, FLV Acai. If you wanted to vape an even more authentic already been chewed Brookside for some reason, I'd start with this recipe and introduce a very small amount of a more tart pomegranate, raspberry (but watch out for those florals), or cranberry flavor. If you're brave, lemon might work even better, but good luck not getting a nasty interaction with the chocolate. Don't try to just bring in more tartness by increasing the Acai. At 1.25%, it gets drier and harsher, which of course can be dealt with, but also just a tiny bit soapy, which is harder to fix. I think FLV Acai's palatability tops out at 1%.

A tribute to Fear

Not only was this recipe "not originally created by this mixer," it wasn't really created by this mixer at all. It was created by @Fear. Only, it was created by Fear without his knowledge or consent, and after reading this he'll probably file some kind of restraining order or at the very least block me on every form of social media. I'm afraid this might cross the line between flattering and creepily stalkerish.

Fear has 22 public recipes on ATF to date. Of those, there are only 10 ingredients he's used three or more times. There are only two that he has used five times, FLV Red Burley and INW Shisha Vanilla. So those two were non-negotiable. He has used Red Burley at an average of ~ 1.75%. His average use % of Shisha Vanilla is around 1.25%, but that went beyond just a playful vanilla accent and created a slight waxiness that went away when I dropped it down to 1%.

There are four flavors he's used four times: FLV Kentucky Blend, FLV Cured Tobacco, INW Cactus, and CAP Cantaloupe. Burley and Cured are Tobacco Batman and Tobacco Robin, basically, and obviously Kentucky would work here, too. I used Fear's average %'s with just a little rounding of those two.

I've thought about making a Cactus + Tobacco recipe and calling it "Grasshopper Spit" but this was not the time or place for that. Cantaloupe + Tobacco was right out, at least for my tastes. That left the things he's used three times so far: TFA Sweetener, INW Shisha Strawberry, JF Honey Peach, and OoO Cream Milky. Honey Peach jumped way out in front of that pack in my mind. Yum. But in my experience it needs some help to be well-rounded flavor and not an upside-down, inside-out peach.

So we go to the ingredients he's used twice. There are a bunch of those, but INW Peach was the clear winner. I started with his average use of 1%, but the brightness of that peach seemed to be getting just a little too weird for me, clashing, I think, with the ashy part of Kentucky Blend. Subsequent versions with it toned down to 0.75% seemed to clean that up.

But why?

Because I thought about how @Shyndo is driving himself nuts trying to create a "tribute to @ConcreteRiver recipe" as the punishment for losing a head-to-head mix-off against him, and wondered how I'd approach such a task. I also mixed up version 1s of "tributes" like this to my friends NotCharlesManson, Philosaphucker, and Kopel. The Lemon-Lime Strawberry Ice Cream Cone needs major work. LA Banana Cream/TFA Kentucky Bourbon/TFA Toasted Marshmallow is a killer combo, until you add a bunch of Cactus to it and it becomes something that just ain't right. Finally, I have an unbalanced bouquet of flowers plus Pink Guava and FLV Cream that needs a lot of love before it will be ready to share. Of the four mixers I wanted to make tributes to, Fear's public body of work was simply the easiest to use this way. You're looking at version 4 with the only tweaks being slight reductions in the two INW ingredients.

A Popsicle made of Pickle Juice

Even with fall just around the corner, it can still get hot as Satan's balls down here in Texas and if you do any kind of outdoor activities, electrolytes will be lost. If you're desperate to put them back, nothing, not even Gatorate, works as well as one of Bob's Pickle Pops, the popsicle made of pickle juice.

All of this was built around OoO Pickle. Accurate as can be, but not a lot of fun to single-flavor test. Vaping pickle flavor is like drinking pickle juice. There's a world of difference in the experience of drinking warm (blech!), room temperature, or even refrigerated pickle juice versus the refreshment level of frozen pickle juice.

That's where WS-23 comes in, to make it freezing cold. Taste perception is subjective and response to cooling agents is possibly the most subjective thing in DIY, so feel free to increase if you like Malaysian juice or decrease if you're scared. Here's how I arrived at that odd-looking 1.55 %, though. Using too much coolant hurts, like getting a brain brain freeze from a Slurpee. But there's a thin blurry line between pleasure and pain -- consider the spiciest food you enjoy, or what orgasms sometimes sound like without words like "OHGOD! YES! YES, ID10-T, YES!" mingled in with the screams and moans to let you know she's dying the little death and not actually being murdered. I wanted to explore that, really ride that line. At 1.5%, WS-23 (in a 30% dilution, the way you can buy it from ECX or Chef's) wasn't close enough to being painful. 1.6% was over the line, just a little, just at first, until I got used to it. 1.55% makes me unsure whether I'm experiencing pleasure or pain. Like when you're done and she won't stop sucking. FWIW, I'm definitely more sensitive than most to Koolada, maybe that's also the case with me and WS-23 and you'll find this amount too tame for all this pleasure/pain nonsense. Regardless, it'll make your pickle into a pickle pop.

CAP Cucumber is there mostly to move it from a Best Maid or Vlasic pickle juice to something more Claussenesque, but it also gives it some welcome body, like freezing pickle juice gives you something to bite into. Similar to the pain/pleasure line, there's as much INW Cactus as I can put in here for extra juicy refreshment without it turning into a pickle-cactus recipe. No aloe in my pickle pop, please. Turns out OoO Pickle and a ton of WS-23 can take on quite a bit more than the 0.25% that would normally be my limit for this use of Cactus, but not quite a full double dose of it.

I owe a huge thank you to @ConcreteRiver for trying an earlier version of this via https://www.reddit.com/r/mixersclub/ and suggesting the addition of FA Bitter Wizard. It keeps the very light garlic note in the OoO Pickle from mingling with the relatively sweeter elements in Cucumber and Cactus (and VG, for that matter) and taking on a touch of a sweet onion vibe.

hashslingingslashur suggested adding "a fruit like strawberry, pineapple, or maybe some lime" to his delicious Jango recipe, which is worth a mix on its own but seems especially well-suited for use as exotic tropical base to build on. I've been playing around with some combinations of Jango and other fruits off and on and this is the first one worth sharing. Sweet, ripe mango with bright, juicy watermelon.

I love /u/Taclite 's All-TFA Bourbon Ice Cream, from the December 2016 Monthly Recipe Thread on /r/DIY_ejuice. It's 8% VBIC, 3% Kentucky Bourbon, 2% Toasted Marshmallow, 1% Brown Sugar. If you like TFA VBIC and are patient, I highly recommend trying it. However, that stuff requires a three-week steep to be good and a month to be amazing. And pepper tasters can't enjoy it. A straight sub for TFA VBIC using CAP or FW just isn't the same. So I tried making my own faster-steeping, pepper taster-friendly, version.

LB VIC + HS VIC is my favorite replacement for TFA VBIC if I want to make something for the pepper people. LB is a just a bit too light and fluffy by itself but a lil touch of HS makes it so rich and satisfying.

TFA KB + TM, if you haven't tried these two together, catch up, please. See Coop's Kiwi Bourbon recipe for details. The way that toasty thick sweetness melts into the bourbon is sexual.

JF Dulce De Leche - There's the brown sugar flavor that Bourbon basically begs for, without the long wait. The problem with vaping Taclite's recipe without the long steep is that TFA Brown Sugar at 1%. Taste it too soon, it's like the brown sugar is very angry and punishes you for your impatience. But if you just use less, it won't reach the eventual perfection of month-old Taclite BIC. This JF DDL, on the other hand, settles into the cream just as fast as the bourbons do. And if you overdrip a bit when mixing, no big deal. Can't say that for TFA Brown Sugar, an extra 0.15% of that could be catastrophic.

FLV Bourbon - Even at just 0.5%, this is the real star here. It's not as sweet corny sour mash flavored as TFA's (but also not as watered down), it doesn't have the alcoholic bite of FA Whiskey (which isn't a bourbon anyway), and it's not as well-rounded as RF SC's bourbon (but it doesn't need a steep to not be gross and then promptly fade out like that one either). What it does is absolutely nail that oak barrel aged thing like nobody's business. This flavor might not make you want to ditch other liquor flavors, but it'll certainly make you think twice about reaching for TFA Red Oak or FA Oakwood.

This recipe (and the one that inspired it) goes so well with a cup of coffee in the morning, it's ridiculous.

Even though @ConcreteRiver won our 1v1 and I have to vape OoO Cheese, I'm still proud of this stuff.


This whimsical one was initially inspired by, and borrows its name from, a delightfully macabre, silly poem.

Gumeye Ball by Shel Silverstein

There’s an eyeball in the gumball machine,

Right there between the red and the green,

Lookin’ at me as if to say,

“You don’t need any more gum today.”

This recipe is a big bite of one of those cartoon or superhero-styled ice cream bars from an ice cream truck, whichever one is vanilla- and lemon-flavored, probably Tweety Bird or some other yellow character. You know, the ones with the gumball eyes? This is the bite with the eyeball in it.

FLV Bubblegum - an authentic bubblegum flavor that's less chalky than some other manufacturers' offerings.. I get some harsh throat from it standalone, but Vanilla Pudding and Marshmallow smooth that over nicely.

FLV Vanilla Pudding - This soothing stuff makes a great base even without much of a steep. It tastes like a vanilla pudding cup, and those ice cream truck bars have much more in common with pudding than with actual ice cream. Kids don't know any better. They aren't looking for the perfect custard tones layered into crispy malty dairy notes in their all-natural preservative-free hand-churned ice cream made from the milk of Kentucky grass-fed holsteins and eggs from free-range chickens collected by Swedish virgins during a full moon and flavored with real Tahitian vanilla beans. Gods, that gets exhausting. Relax. Have some vanilla pudding. Enjoying this flavor lets you be a kid again.

FLV Lemonade - Sweet, sugary lemonade. Definitely not freeze-squeezed, more like the Country Time, like something you'd buy from a kid with a lemonade stand. Blends in easily with the vanilla pudding to make one of those lemon-flavored ice cream cartoon heads.

FLV Marshmallow - I want sleep on its pillowy deliciousness, just bury my face in there. It tastes more like an actual marshmallow than any of the other marshmallow flavors. In here, it eliminates any need for added sweetener, smooths over some of the rough stuff, and changes the mouthfeel and flavor of pudding into something more like soft-serve ice cream.

FLV Cream - Don't need a reason to use FLV Cream, only a reason not to. This recipes gives no reason not to. FLV Cream aka Frank's Red Hot does a great job of pulling all of this together and providing satisfying finish, without calling too much attention to itself.

It's often said that possession is nine-tenths of the law, but when it comes to... certain things, I still subscribe to the playground rule of ownership: "I licked it, it's mine." This abstract recipe, made of only ingredients found in All The Flavors' June 2017 Awesome Box, was inspired by that philosophy.

Cherry Blossom is an ingredient you generally want to use as an accent at lower than 4%, as it can even be the focal point of a recipe as low as 2%, but here the higher % is needed to make it the star and to make its cherry flavor stand out in the mix. The rich ice cream pulls its floral top notes way down but doesn't extinguish them entirely, which is good, they keep things interesting.. The pink part of LB's Pink Lemonade, which is a delightful powdered-mix pink lemonade flavor on its own, further enhances the red fruity flavor of Cherry Blossom. With a little help from FLV Cream, the lemonade combines with that cherry flavor for something oddly somewhat reminiscent of a Sonic Drive-In "Cherry Limeade CreamSlush," which is just their cherry limeade blended with ice and soft-serve ice cream.

EVERYONE SHOULD TRY THIS.... MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. This proves spectacularly that Cactus can be the co-star of a delicious creamy fruit custard show. It's as well-balanced as a trapeze artist. There's no aloe here - which is what I was mostly afraid of when I saw 2% Cactus - nor any soapiness or offensively floral perfume or anything like that. You first get hit with two distinct fruity top notes, the fruit of the prickly pear and natural pear, and then it registers that these are suspended in a creamy custard, which is just a delightful moment. This is not as totally off-the-wall as it might seem. Cactus and cactus fruit are staples in Central American cuisine. I have found culinary recipes for prickly pear custard, and pear custards are everywhere. This just puts the cactus fruit and pear custards together. At the end, you're left with a lingering lip-licking raw but wet sugar-glaze finish, like someone forgot to brûlée a cactus-pear crème brûlée. I can hardly wait to mix some more!

5 stars for deliciousness, overnight steep only, wish I'd made more because I don't think this is going to last very long at all. But almost gave only 4 stars due to false advertising; this is not just a "touch" of cardamom - it's super cardamommy. Will definitely mix again, might cut the spice in half next time to see how that sweet dough tastes without so much of it. But might not, because it is so, so good.

This recipe has performed a miracle: It has made a banana juicy. I mean, squeeze a banana. Put a banana in blender. Fucking take a hydraulic press to the damn thing. No juice, just baby food. But this has made possible the impossibility of biting into a banana that gushes so much banana juice it runs down my face. Like being transported into another dimension where bananas are as juicy as watermelons. That's as wonderful as it is weird. Thanks Philosaphucker for a recipe that will have a regular spot in my rotation!

If you've ever wondered what blue raspberry snow cones taste like in heaven, this it. The snow cone stand that gives away this deliciousness is halfway between the beer volcano and the stripper factory and this juice recipe is the only way to taste them on this side of the veil of death.

After tweaking a few of the percentages, I turned this already-delicious recipe into the best mango e-juice I've ever tasted. Thank you, Tamachicken!

This tastes terrific! It's like a fresh sopapilla tossed in cinnamon & brown sugar and then topped with vanilla ice cream. Very complex and hits all the right notes after steeping for 15 days. I wouldn't suggest changing a thing. I've been meaning to try to make a sopapilla cheesecake vape that would be a simpler profile (based on a culinary recipe that's just canned crescent rolls, cream cheese, vanilla, cinnamon, and sugar) and will probably steal liberally from this when I do. But in the meantime, I need to get some more of this in the steeping drawer because it is delicious. Thanks Myztik!

UPDATE: Tastes like a good steep might make it a winner 2 days out in my tank, but some problematic off-notes when dripped. Excited to try this again with all of the flavors reduced by a quarter, no other changes. Older review: Made this last night so it hasn't steeped yet (and it definitely needs to), but with my morning coffee it seems like you may have finally cracked the donut code with your crazy-looking flavor %'s. Will update this review after steep. I still have two more versions I want to try, one planned and one already steeping, but I won't be surprised if I find this is the winner. It finally has that "wet, sticky glaze" quality that previous versions were lacking.

This is a great mango lassi, I just wish the mango got down into the yogurt base more instead of being mostly top notes. Could also stand to be a little sweeter. Super excited about the upcoming V2!

This is indeed a great ADV for vanilla or custard lovers. The combination of VC and VBIC in a 2:1 ratio is an unforgettable team of double vanilla diacetylicousness and I thoroughly enjoy what those little bits of NY Cheesecake and Graham Cracker do to them. Nice to see this finally on ATF, SleepersDemon!

The flavors are nice and melt together smoothly into a sweet fruity treat after steeping for 9 or 10 days. But what really made an impression on me is the mouth-feel, which is nothing short of luxurious. I could not have guessed this juice would be so thick and creamy from just looking at the ingredients.

A refreshing change of pace that's wet and juicy and full-flavored without being heavy. I bit too much jasmine for my own taste but people who love a floral vape should go ga-ga over this.

WOW! This is very different and super tasty. It tastes like someone took a grapefruit shandy, mixed it with some guava nectar, and then took that and made a bubblegum based on it. That's was the first thing that came to mind when I vaped it. Bubblegum. It doesn't taste anything like bubblegum at all, at least no bubblegum I've ever had, but it's both very thick and super wet and juicy in a way that's not quite like anything I've vaped before. It's exactly like the way good bubblegum makes your mouth water like crazy as you chew it. Amazing recipe!

I came back to re-review this after a longer steep and give it 4 stars instead of the three I gave it after the short steep that was recommended, but it looks like you've made some significant changes to it since then. The changes look really tasty, I'll have to give this new-improved version a try and then re-review.

Absolutely love the idea behind this one. My favorite version of PB&J is grape jelly too! Enjoyed the vape too, I like how it all has a nice gooey feel to it like an actual shake with PB in it. The only room for improvement I noted is that the grape tastes more like raw grapes than jelly, and that by the time the off-note in Vienna Cream steeps out (tried after an overnight steep first), both the peanut butter and grape, which were previously distinct and in just the right place, became somewhat muted and muddled. Might try it again and just leave out the Vienna Cream or swap it for something else and shake and vape it rather than waiting for Vienna to steep, cuz that gooey PB and grape inside a shake is NICE.

I can't believe I didn't pile onto this orgiastic love-fest sooner, doing the review just slipped my mind. This is a truly remarkable recipe, there needs to be way to give more than 5 stars to this one. It does need about a 5 day steep to reach perfection. And after that I can imagine it might not be a strong steeper, but I'll probably never know how long it can last because it's too good to put down.

This is an odd profile that might not be for everyone, but I loved it and found it to taste very much like the filling in those delicious Goya Guava Wafers. I might try adding a very small (1.5% or so) amount of CAP Sugar Cookie and maybe some TFA Vanilla Swirl (1.5% or so) to see if I can get the wafer part and really emulate those things.
User: ID10-T Score: 5 Entered: about 1 year ago
I can't really comment on authenticity since I've only ever had guanabana nectar and not the actual fruit, but with a juice that tastes this good, who cares about authenticity? It just hits all the right spots, with a tartness that works like a tart fresh strawberry or a bit of pineapple and makes an excellent counterweight to the sweet, creamy milkshake base. That tartness kept me coming back and never getting bored. I try to give some constructive criticism on every critique but I'm mostly drawing blanks here, as this is a 5-star, ADV quality vape and I can't think of anything that might make it better than it already is... balance, mouthfeel, originality (in the sense that I've never had anything quite like this before, I know the milkshake base was borrowed but that was a great decision to make), everything about this is just gets it done. 10ml left me wanting more without any thoughts on how I might try tweaking it, and that is rare. Great recipe!!!

Truly mouthwatering. It has a feel to it that makes me think of a fruit slushy drink, not a Slurpee, but like someone took actual frozen mixed melon balls, put them in a blender, added some apple juice and simple syrup, and whizzed it up.

This really is what outer space tastes like, but it's way too much for Koolada for me. I'm going to give it another go at 0.25% Koolada. The Grape can stay at 2.5% for me.

I wished there was just a wee bit more butterscotch here, but that might have been from trying it at max VG instead of my usual 70/30, and otherwise this tastes delectable. There's nothing off or unpleasant about it in any way whatsoever. I enjoying the vanilla bakery base right were it is, just as it was described, like a muffin top but for a cupcake, a cupcake top which is covered with sweet butterscotch/cream cheese icing. Those should be a thing. Who cares about the bottom half of a cupcake, anyway?

A sweet, soothing peppermint cream somewhat reminiscent of a Shamrock Shake. I have the flu and nothing tastes as it should, I can barely vape anything with this cough, but this recipe was a godsend that actually feels good on my sore throat. It's only had a one-day steep at this point, I imagine it will get even better over time as most things with Vanilla Swirl do.

Love, love, love this. I let it have about 36 hours steep, didn't take long at all for this delicate flower to work its way into this Strap-On wonderfully. Honeysuckle complements this fruit mix without getting too floral at 2%. It actually seems to enhance the inherent sweetness in the fruits. Kinda reminds me of Honey Pearry. Kudos, Havohej!

Of all the strap-ons I've tried -- original Strap-On, numerous unpublished variations, Spiny Dragon Strap-On, Suckle My Strap-On -- this one is my favorite so far. It's like a strap-on in paradise. That sweet, nectary mango juices up the basic and slightly dry strap-on beautifully and gives a tropical twist to the other flavors without obscuring them at 1.5%. The only thing I don't love about it is that I didn't think of it myself. Thanks for this one, Apexified!

At 6 days in, not quite nailing the profile, but closer than my failed attempts, pretty darn tasty, and definitely worth a mix for anyone interested in the elusive Cookie Butter and wanting a very solid starting place. I think I'll try bringing the Gingerbread, CDS, and Custard all down a hair, increasing the CAP Sugar Cookie a bit, and adding some FA Caramel and FA Meringue.

It's a yummy blend of fruits that tastes like a Polynesian vacation away from custards and cookies. Punching up that realistic but weak watermelon with a melon that really lingers on the palate and adding coconut gives it kind of an 'otai vibe, as if someone blended a banana and some applesauce into a watermelon 'otai for added fun and deliciousness. This was a nice surprise for me because on paper, I thought this might just taste like a more interesting and watermelon-forward version of Tiger's Blood snow cone, with an added squirt of banana syrup that the snow cone stand guy might let you have for a wink and a quarter. Instead, the strawberry stays well in the background and could maybe even be left out of this mix, either just omitted or possibly replaced with addition of a little of a different coconut. But then, that'd be a different dick and this one tastes terrific just the way it is.

The berry part just comes on too strong for me, not only taking over but even getting a little perfumey. Which is a shame, because there seems, as best I can tell, to be a fantastic donut underneath an unfortunately floral berry. I would like to try this again with either the raspberry reduced or removed and replaced with something else, or the huckleberry and raspberry both reduced to let the bakery aspect shine through more.

Edible's fuzzy faux peen is a soft and gentle counterpart to sharper strap-on renditions. It tastes like he was asked to make a juice that tastes like the end of a sweet Southern summer and completely arose to the occasion. Even at only 1%, INW Peach steals the show, but the watermelon and strawberry behind it give it a the flavor of a peach-forward summer fruit punch at first, and then Fuji hauls the peach on its back, carrying it further that it could go on its own and leaving a lingering Peach Apple Juicy Juice flavor that makes me want more and inspires me to explore a Fuji/Peach pairing with other additions in the future. Thanks for this deliciousness!

This is a delicious strawberry watermelon colada with extra cream that does indeed go down smooth! At first I thought it was good, but could have been better if it used INW Pineapple instead of that tinny CAP Golden. But after a vaping on it a bit, it grew on me more and more just the way it is. I definitely recommend giving it a decent steep. I'm sure it's fine S&V but that whipped cream gets thicker and sweeter if you give it some time, yum yum yum.

This is awesome! It turns Strap-on into a tasty chewy fruity bubble gum and I love it. This is a recipe I could easily see myself coming back to.I don't have any constructive criticism because I wouldn't change a thing here. I do have some curiosity about ways it could be played with, though. What if something like 5% VBIC and 1% Cream Fresh were added? Would it taste like one of those ice cream truck fruity ice cream treats shaped after cartoon characters, complete with gummy eyeballs? Are ice cream truck ice cream treats with gummy eyeballs something that would be fun to vape? If you wanted to sell drugs and/or kidnap children, would an ice cream truck be a great cover?

Adding Guanabana and Cherimoya to Strap-On to give it a tropical twist and a creamy bottom was genius!

Not an unpleasant flavor by any means but seems to suffer from just a bit too much going on. It's just overwhelmingly busy with the fruity top notes. It wouldn't be a strap-on anymore, but I'd like to try it again with either the apple, strawberries, or melons removed. Probably the apple seems most out of place; it tastes like a good start to something like a melon-strawberry milk. No matter what, I wouldn't change that vanilla milk base; it's heavenly.

This needs more than the 3 days recommended, IMO. There's a little harshness and dryness, kind of a rindy taste, at just 3 days. Give it 8 though, and you've got a mouthwatering strawberry kiwi watermelon that tastes like candy made with real kiwi in it. Delicious!

Wow. I am impressed, even with just an overnight steep - and I imagine it will only get better with time. I was definitely skeptical about this one, even with Skiddlzninja's name on it. I thought it might be too busy with the fruit notes or have something pop out as being out of place. Did he even try or was he just throwing some shit together to keep up his end of a strange bargain? But all my doubts have been laid to rest. It's a bit weird, yes, but in the best possible way. None of the fruit notes really stand out, they all sort of melt together into this big, somewhat candyfied fruit something. Best way I can describe it... Remember when you were a kid and your grandparents dragged you to one of those bland, disgusting cafeteria-type restaurants, like Golden Feeding Trough or whatever, and they had soft-serve ice cream and a ridiculous array of various toppings, gummy bears and sprinkles and fruits and even freakin' gumballs, and being a kid (who either trusted with the innocence of a child the effectiveness of those sneeze guards, or simply didn't think about them at all) you just loaded that shit up with all kinds of crap? And you loved every single bit of it so much that your little heart was just bursting with love for grandparents and ice cream and fruity candy? That's what this is. Every hit of this is an instant trip back in time to eating that bowl of wonderful, ridiculously-topped soft serve. Skiddlz earned those scotches, for sure.

Love this simple, delicious recipe. After steeping for week, it reminds me of those thick and soft Lofthouse Cookies piled high with icing, if you can imagine the icing infused with ripe strawberries instead of just being a big pile of sugar.

First of all, this is a Strap-On recipe, one of the early ones, way ahead of the recent phenomenon. Stacks on Deck even sounds like "Strap On Dick" and on the off chance that wasn't intentional, it was at least a subconscious connection. Secondly, this is a mouthwatering, exciting fruity combo. Anton and LA Watermelon seem made for each other. It has some throat when fresh for me, but still delicious and more tart. However, let it steep for two weeks and it's juicy goodness that goes in super smooth like apple and watermelon jolly ranchers lubed up with a little strawberry syrup and is hard as hell to put down.

My Honeydew damage rears it's ugly head. I love TFA Honeydew but I can't seem to tolerate it at the levels other people enjoy it. Whatever alchemy went into making 4% TFA Honeydew taste delicious to me in the original Honey Sucker is missing from this version and the result is a mouthful of soap. That said, I'm crazy about CAP Cantaloupe thanks to that recipe and the combination of INW Peach and JF Honey Peach has proven wonderful elsewhere, so I'm sure anyone who doesn't have some kind of weird honeydew problem would love this mix. I'm going to give it another go with the Honeydew cut in half. UPDATE: Yeah, I still don't like it as much as the original Honey Sucker, but with half as much Honeydew, this is delicious and super juicy.

Weird tart grapple up front, juicy melon finish, with sweet strawberry throughout. There seems to be just a bit of that Grack magic going on here in the way it grew on me. At first it was frankly painful, that grape seemed to have a medicinal quality and I was taken aback. But I kept coming back to it and as my palate stretched, I began to become accustomed to the way it fits in here, and then pretty quickly started to really enjoy it. Now I don't see myself stopping until the whole bottle is empty!

UPDATE: This doesn't need anything changed to have a thicker, fuller mouthfeel. Revisiting it, I found it just needs a longer steep than the recommended 10 days. Have patience with this one and it will reward you for it. Previous review: I love this stuff! The cran/raz mixture is perfect, tart/sweet and for real feels more like berries than juice. They pop. That's a neat trick with the pom and if I had to guess, I think without it that I wouldn't be nearly as inclined to vape this all day. But it stays interesting enough to do just that. I'm so happy my kid brother's lazy but highly addictive contribution to holiday feasts inspired a juice worthy of having crack in the name. I do wish it had a bit more of a thicker, fuller, more satisfying mouthfeel but only, ONLY!!!, if that could be achieved without messing up this cran/raz magic.

I've tried a lot of simple two-ingredient combinations with FLV Mango and this is the best one yet. As suggested, you could try adding any number of other fruits to it and it would likely take well to them. I'm looking forward to playing with it. Probably starting with some kind of coconut. But it's tasty as hell all by itself, with Jackfruit gently highlighting and enhancing the pineappley and fleshy, peachy notes in the mango. If you're into cooling agents like Koolada, adding a little could easily make this a sweet tropically fruity summertime ADV.

But I never would have attempted or assumed I would enjoy a straight up-coconut milk vape. The coconut flavors we have just didn't seem built for that. I was wrong. This has all the right things and none of the wrong things. Tastes like coconut milk with some coconut cream added in and is very natural, none of that suntan oil or even snow-cone flavor. It's rich and sweet but not too rich or too sweet and a smooth, easy vape.

This is delicious. The chocolate chip cookie dough chunks part of this is wonderful. I get a startlingly accurate cookie dough that's maybe a bit heavy on the chocolate, not quite chocolate cookie dough with chocolate chips but more like the chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream with extra chocolate chunks. I like the vanilla flavor, it reminds me of the way I like to add extra vanilla to homemade cookie dough. But the 4 instead of 5 stars, despite the great flavor here, is because seems to be seriously lacking in the ice cream department. I wouldn't have guessed it was supposed to be an ice cream recipe if I hadn't read the description. I think I'd like to try this with more VBIC in it and maybe some other ice cream ingredients like HS French Vanilla Ice Cream, if those could be increased/added without messing up this tasty cookie dough.

This is one of the most befuddling things I've ever vaped. It took almost all of 30ml to decide whether I even liked it or not, which has to be some kind of record. I had trouble putting it down, mostly because it confused me and I was desperately trying to get a handle on it. Texturally, it's very moist and juicy, yet there's a density to it as well. It's chewy, like a chewing a fresh piece of mouthwatering bubblegum. But flavor is just this intensely confusing blend of sweet grape-esque fruitiness and bitter vegetal greenness, with buttery vanilla finish. There's so much going on, but not too much. I worry about what else goes on the mind that of someone would concoct such a thing as this, but I would heartily recommend it to anyone who is tired of vaping the same old stuff. Fans of Fiestas & Fiascos by ConcreteRiver and the famous Grack Juice by Philosaphucker should definitely give this a shot.

Abuela is a GILF. This recipe is sultry as all get-out. I feel like the owner of a mango plantation enjoying a fine cigar while surveying my orchard. This isn't your gas station mango cigar that's just going to get hollowed out for a blunt, with fake mango flavor all in your face.

This is an interesting, extra juicy, full-bodied mix of natural and candy fruit that I would have been in love with if it weren't giving me a bit of a soapy note. Don't let that stop you from trying it. I have issues with soapiness from some other flavors (looking at you TFA Honeydew) that many other mixers don't get at the same %s. We all have our own little types of damage. I don't have enough experience with some of these flavors to identify the culprit or culprits, but once I do, I bet this combination of ingredients with one or two of the %s lowered will result in something I can't put down.

I love this incredibly delicious, unique recipe! When I was a young kid one of my favorite breakfasts was warm, fresh white rice with a pat of sugar, a spoonful of sugar, and a splash of milk. The milk & sweet rice combo strokes that childhood nostalgia spot, while the vanilla cream with honeysuckle speaks to my adult tastes. No off notes or flaws in the recipe, it's exactly as described. I gave it only an overnight steep. I suspect it could deteriorate relatively quickly. I'm sure it would still be tasty, but that rice would melt into an indistinct starch and vanilla will take over. I won't find out, though, because this 30 ml doesn't stand a chance of making it more than a day and a half or so before I blissfully vape it down to the last drop!

Truth: This is too good to not share. I started sampling it after only an overnight steep and immediately loved it, but if you either have some patience or make enough, it gets even better around day 3 or 4, when the lime begins to intertwine with the honeysuckle and the creams start to thicken more and give you a richer, more satisfying vape that's not so top heavy. I would encourage anyone who enjoyed the original Longing give this improved version a try.

I found this to be a very tasty (hence the 5-stars) recipe, as well as an interesting take on boba tea and creative use of FE Sweet Rice. But, not without issues. I gave it a drip after the recommended 5 days and again the next day and what I got was not "the starchy flavor of the bubbles" - it was very distinctly rice-y, tasted like a bowl of rice with mango milk tea poured all over it. Definitely not unpleasant, but a bit weird and not accurate to the description. On the 6th day, I filled up a sub-ohm tank with it and got the same thing, minus some nuance. It wasn't until the morning of the 7th day, when I vaped the juice that had been sitting in the tank overnight, that it became more of a generic starchy note like those wonderful chewy tapioca balls, rather than a weird yet entirely pleasant bowl of rice. Unfortunately, tank-steeping made the mango fade quite a bit. Refilled the tank and we're back to rice again. It wasn't until day 10 that it the rice finally faded enough to lend the starchy flavor without specifically tasting of rice, and without too much mango note loss, so I could at last truly enjoy a better mango boba. TLDR; wonderful recipe, I think the recommended steep time should be doubled. Maybe things steep faster in Skiddlzland or my scale misread how much Sweet Rice went in there.

Smooth, creamy vape that I give five stars for just being so darn delicious, but it also drove me a little crazy. It tastes like grasping for something that's just out of reach. As soon as I opened the bottle of FLV Persimmon, I knew "Yearning" was the perfect name for a recipe with a plot, a sort-of story in a bottle about wanting to be able to vape have a vape tastes the way that smells, but without the throat razors. This seems to stop just barely short of that full persimmon flavor, but so close to it that it's less of a disappointment and more like being edged to the point of insanity. Like every hit is so good, but instead of fully satisfying, it leaves you craving more. It tastes like no matter how much of this you make, you'll be sad when it's all gone.

Something strange is going on here. 2% CAP Creamy Yogurt doesn't sound like much yogurt and 4% of that weak TFA Grape Juice doesn't sound like much grape. And yet, this is both yogurty (to a fault, IMO) and super grapey. My only problem with it is that I'm not getting "sweet yogurt ice cream" or frozen yogurt that's more like ice cream than yogurt, I'm getting a full-on grape yogurt with emphasis on the 'gurt. That's a little off-putting when you're expecting grape fro-yo and you get grape go-gurt. On the other hand, adding Kiwi to get better grape out of TFA Grape Juice? Genius. This is a recipe that has a lot of potential, and maybe just needs some adjustment in that 2/2 Creamy Yogurt/Vanilla Ice Cream base for more ice cream, less yogurt. If it can be added without bringing along icky off notes, some cooling additive might be welcome here as well.

I see this as a recipe with HUGE potential, held back by just one ingredient. Combining Grape Juice with Forest Fruits? Awesome. Combining Grape with Lemon and Forest Fruits with Lemon? Hell, yes. But that Blueberry Lemonade Slushie. It has a weird chemical off-note for me as a shake and vape. I tried this with just a short steep as suggested to see if something in the recipe managed to mask that, no luck. I tried letting it steep for over a week to see if it steeped out and it does, but what it leaves behind is a blueberry that's a little too earthy for this application and a lemonade that's a little too Country Time for my personal taste. Yanking that Blueberry Lemonade Slushie out of here and replacing it with a more realistic lemon flavor could turn this into an outstanding recipe, in my opinion.

There's a surprising amount of flavor here for 5.69% and that flavor is enjoyable, but for accuracy to the PUC profile, I'd like it more if the glaze was a bit more glaze-y. It's a bit thin, like it needs some more brown sugar-type flavor. Also, it seems a bit high on the cherry, but a thicker coating of that brown sugar glaze that makes PUC so good would probably fix that without having to change the cherry %.

It's a perfect, vapeable blue raspberry Slurpee, an improvement on the already awesome Blue Frost recipe. If you like OSDIY Blue Raspberry Slush or blue raspberry anything at all, I think you'll love this; it takes everything about that flavor, levels it up, and freezes it cold. FW Pink Champagne and CAP Hibiscus hit that textural component of syrup mix and fine ice excellently. But the main difference between this and the previous version is that instead of having to imagine the cold, it's really there, without any off-notes. WS-23 truly is amazing, I think I might be getting hooked on it as well.

Before I say something that might be misconstrued as "don't mix this" - MIX THIS! But don't mix too much; the notorious fading of FA Lemon Sicily and the muting properties of Strawberry Ripe combine in a perfect storm of recipe degradation. It falls apart in about 3 days. Easy solution; don't make more than you can vape in about 3 days. Start vaping immediately; it's a true shake and vape recipe. During those days; enjoy a sublime blend berry and lemonade. The lemonade base itself is more CountryTime than anything an actual lemon was involved in creating, but there's absolutely nothing wrong with that. Who doesn't love a nice cold glass of CountryTime Pink Lemonade at the end of a hot summer day, right?! This is that, done perfectly. To make it even better than perfect add some coolant of your choice -- I made a second batch with 1.5% WS-23 (30% solution in PG), but FA Polar Blast would probably be good too -- and get refreshed AF.

One of those recipes where five stars doesn't seem sufficient. I don't know what this creator was thinking, but it tastes like he tried TFA Honeysuckle by itself, thought about what to add to make it taste as amazing as possible, and succeeded. The TFA Pear and honeysuckle melt together to become one delicious pear-suckle thing, while FA Pear gives it so much sweet juiciness. The cream pulls it all together and finishes it with a light, yet satisfying fullness. Proof that the classic honeysuckle & pear combo doesn't need melon, lime, or strawberry to be sexy as hell. And a standout example of how a relatively simple recipe doesn't necessarily have to taste simple.

I'll be so happy when I run out of this delicious and perfect lemon macaron recipe so I get back to my to-do list. The only word of warning I would give about this recipe is to mind the steep time. I snuck a taste at 5 days and while it was tasty, the lemon is a just little too much for a delicate macaron. At 8 days, the lemon drops down just enough for that less in-your-face lemon you want in this kind of pastry. If you love lemon bakery recipes, give this one a try. If you've made your own lemon bakery recipes, you'll appreciate how much work I imagine went to balancing this.

On paper, I was skeptical about this working as a tiger's blood recipe. FLV Coconut? That's too buttery. FLV Wild Melon? What's that doing in there? But it actually works well. Kinda tastes like the tiger's blood you'd get if you were wealthy and could afford to go the fanciest sno cone stand, where the watermelon flavor is a an exotic, proprietary syrup and the whole thing was topped with actual condensed milk instead of cheap imitation cream stuff the poor kids get.

This man knows his tobaccos, I tell you hwhat! Excellent rich, creamy, nutty cigar flavor. I was scared of citrus notes popping up from all those FA flavors, or an unpleasant dryness that also plagues them, but I got none of that after a 3-week steep. So glad I bought the flavor pack from BCF and my only regret is not mixing more of it. Still not as amazing as Fear's ABUELA recipe, though.

Tastes like the smell from a freshly opened pack of Marb Reds has been super concentrated, infused into dark rum, and then poured all over a bland biscuit-type cookie until it falls apart from sogginess. And it stains your coils like a MF'er. But I'm not bitter or anything. I didn't have Sweet Fig and had to sub in 0.5% Fig. Maybe it tastes like a spot-on Fig Newton if you use the right fig.

This is a masterpiece, both in accuracy and flavor. I've struggled with the way FLV Mango tries to sit on top of a recipe and come up with some tricks for dragging it down into the mix, but here, it rests right on top of the rice base, the way mango with sticky rice should. And the coconuts and cream fresh are used perfectly to get that sticky rice down. So it's both layered and balanced exquisitely and despite being a relatively simple recipe, it tastes like a considerable amount of work went into it. If you've ever worked with coconuts, you KNOW a lot of work went into it. A reminder, though, to anyone reading this, pay attention to the "this is not a recipe to throw in your steep cabinet" instruction. The FA Coconut might help keep it together a little longer, but FE Sweet Rice will fall apart before too long.

This recipe is a technical marvel - totally S&V-able warm, fresh bear claw with a startlingly accurate slivered almond topping. Five stars for that. But despite showing off an incredible level of skill, I wish I'd made a smaller bottle. Once you get over what an achievement this is, vaping it starts to get old. That FW Whiskey starts to get a little weird and meaty-tasting. But I blame the contest restrictions more than anything else for that. What this is good for, more than anything else besides proving that the mixer is a genius, is getting someone very excited to try the two spinoffs, Loup Garou and Cherry Cheese Wolf.

What started as merely trying this recipe because FLV Mango + Fear = Must Mix for me after Abuela, turned into a project of comparing and contrasting four different versions, all of them delicious and fitting the bill for a mango-orange sorbet and wonderful summer treat. As written, it had just enough cool to be refreshing and suggest a sorbet. Tried the FLV Pear variation with Polar Blast and although I wouldn't recommend buying that Pear, as it is an abomination, it made the sorbet texture even better. Spot on. Tried it as written with WS-23 as a 1:1 sub for Polar Blast and it was colder, smoother, and more satisfying, but the WS-23 seemed to damage or at least distract from the thickness you want in a sorbet; it became more of a slush. Tried the Pear version with WS-23 and this is what's up. That Pear gave it back what the WS-23 took away and created an amazing sorbet vape with body and chill. If you happen to have both FLV Pear and WS-23 in a 30% dilution, give that a try. Love it. Blood Orange and Mango (with peach to give it some volume) comes together so well, I hope to see more of that pairing. Well done!

If this were called Cinnamon Toast Crunch, I'd consider it a failure. But it promises Frosted Flakes with cinnamon and a splash of milk instead and it hits that mark more deliciously than any accurate CTC could, because Frosted Flakes with cinnamon and milk is just better than CTC. And it can be vaped all day, which is an accomplishment for any cinnamon vape. The only drawback I see here is that now I have to try all of Mr. Burgundy's breakfast bowl series.

Excellent recipe. Legit intricate cinnamon danish that comes together in just three days? That's a neat trick. Seems like it could even be a CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl killer with just another 0.05 to 0.1% more Rich Cinnamon, without out the blueberries. But the blueberries are the star here. They really do taste deliciously baked into a fresh pastry.

I went with the Brie booster and don't regret it. Love the cream cheese part. But I'm getting just a little plastic fume note from the cherries. Giving this 4 stars anyway because someone who isn't so sensitive to cherry awfulness might love it, and also because someone wants to make some some other fruit with cream cheese danish should give it a try as an example of how that's done, just swap the INW Cherries and Apricot for whatever else. And don't forget the Brie, it really works here.

This is a wonderful recipe that's butter-smooth and easy to vape. It's not as tobacco-forward as I expected given the references to Abuela but the Gold Ducat adds a fascinating sweet yet earthy and dark element to the mango/peach combo. It tastes like a formal evening event in tropical locale and I love it! Note: I didn't have a chance to try this until after it had steeped for 11 days, quite a bit longer than the 3 days recommended. So let it steep or YMMV.

That's two stars, not one - the second is for one hellva read with this description. And the only one getting pitchforked should be the evil bastard who came up with those restrictions. But, I still wouldn't recommend mixing this up.

I was skeptical of a few aspects of this recipe but gave it a shot anyway. I'm so glad I did. It might be too rich and sweet for ADV but over coffee or instead of dessert it's decadently delicious after a two-week steep. The sugary-ness is on point for a creme brulee and if you're the type to always add a little sweetener to your stuff regardless of the recipe, try this one without that: you get sugar lips without it. I get an almost boozy note from it and while that might be considered off for the profile. Update: Had to revise my review after vaping on it for bit. That slight tobacco note that Jerikorayne mentioned starts to gather on the palate over time. I still think this is a very good recipe, but I bet it could be improved by a little less of not only the INW Creme Brulee, but everything. I might mix it again with the flavors cut by 25% across the board and see if it's still as thick, sweet, and rich but without any distracting offness.

Excellent recipe! TFA Strawberry and TFA Coconut were in my very first DIY order of five flavors. TFA Watermelon was in the second order of five more flavors. Other strawberry, watermelon, and coconut flavors followed soon after. So, I made many variations of Tiger's Blood a long time ago, mostly tweaking others' recipes to try to improve them. More recently, I made a few fresh attempts at it because Graham said it would help make Jyroe shut up, somehow. None of them have been worth sharing, yet, this is much truer to the source material than Graham's recipe, and Jyroe has a reason to not shut up. Of all those Tiger's Bloods, this is the best. The use of TFA Coconut here is especially commendable because that is absolutely the right coconut for a Tiger's Blood shaved ice flavor. If you're trying to make an authentic Tiger's Blood snow cone vape without any TFA Coconut, you're doing it wrong. I wouldn't be surprised to learn that TFA Coconut is used to make the actual coconut snow cone syrup. There are indeed "better" coconut flavors out there, but this is the right one for this particular job. It's tricky because too much is suntan oil, though. Coconut Candy works to push that coconut flavor further without it getting weird, since it's another candy flavor and not a realistic coconut, which would be out of place. It might be a tenth of a percent or so too high for the hint of coconut in Tiger's Blood, but that's the only place I see room for improvement here. The added depth form the CAP Golden Pineapple is masterful. The strawberries are a good fit as well. PUR Watermelon seems like candy watermelon cheat mode. But I've used it in my recent attempts and still not reached this level of awesomeness. It tastes like a great deal of work went into this thing. My only real problem with it is that title is missing the possessive apostrophe. Tiger's Blood, not Tigers Blood. It's a shame because people might come to ATF searching for "Tiger's Blood" and not have this recipe pop up in the results.

The name is unfortunate, it's mildly disturbing to see anything after "Best Damn" that isn't "Pink Lemonade." However, I'll be damned if this isn't damn fine choco pudding. Thick & sweet with real pudding mouthfeel, full flavored even at just 5.36%, and hits the spot for a chocolate vape without too much tootsie roll taste. Tasting this at 10 days I can imagine it will only get even better with time, as chocolates do. Excellent recipe!

Pleasant AF! I had no idea TFA Peanut Butter could be made to taste so smooth and creamy after a steep. It loves to just dry out and turn to mud. Not so here; where it's peanut butter ice cream all day. Topping this delightfulness with lavender-infused marshmallow seems like a strange choice, but it works, very well. I was scared of the anise too - I hate the actual taste of it - but here it just seems to modify the lavender, which is comes across as just a floral hint, not as laundry soap or even full-on flowers but more of an exotic spice, and helps to make 2% TFA Marshmallow actually taste and feel like a marshmallow topping, which is an accomplishment.. It's a shame that all these "scary" ingredients will probably prevent all but a few brave souls from trying it. Those who pass it by are missing out on something amazing.

I've never had butter beer to judge whether this is the real deal, but it seems accurate to the rich, creamy, and sweet description given and even has a terrific thick-drink mouthfeel. Goes down velvety smooth and reminds me of something you'd get at Starbucks, but with vanilla cream soda instead of coffee. The only beef I have with it is the 0.5% Super Sweet. It leaves a Spenda-esque aftertaste that bugs me; I bet this would be even better with the Super Sweet reduced to 0.25 to 0.3%.

It's the Best Damn Grilled Stick. I think it's like chewing on skewer that had just been used to grill pineapples and then to toast marshmallows. But, the thing is, that's actually a lot more enjoyable than it might sound. Warm and woody, sweet and tart, and all-in-all a pleasant, interesting, vape. Good by ordinary standards, gorgeous given the short time for development and five-ingredient restriction it was created under. Give it a shot yourself and weigh in on whether you think the contest was judged fairly or whether there was some sort of favoritism afoot that caused this to be the winner.

For something pretty far outside of my usual interest (Clove & Tobacco?) I found this hugely enjoyable. That's quite an accomplishment. Everything here seems to be fine-turned to just the right levels to work together. Burley and Cured is tobacco cheat code but I can imagine combining them with Oak Wood and it seems like no easy thing to get that to come out as woodsy tobacco and not wood + tobacco, if that makes sense. Clove is generally one of my least favorite flavors to vape but it doesn't feel out of place or overdone. Finally, that bit o' honey on the end there. Very satisfying, it really is a nice little touch of honey and not some floral nonsense. I don't have any suggestions for improving this. There doesn't seem to be any room for improvement. I think we have a winner here.

Give this about week to steep. It develops into a wonderfully woodsy warm vanilla tobacco that's remarkably full-flavored for such low %s used. I don't know why it's listed as a "work in progress" - it tastes finished to me, with no sign of room for improvement. Not too sweet, not too dry, just terrific. I can definitely enjoy this Morning Wood all day.

This makes for a terrific vape. Lemon Tea, Hibiscus, and the two berries are balanced precisely.. I'm going to go ahead and give this five stars because the only two recommendations I have to improve the experience are very subjective and already addressed in the notes as options. 1) Less Super Sweet. I went ahead and used the 0.5% in the recipe. Don't do that. Eliminating it is an option but I think just cutting it in half will most likely be just right for this recipe and also get rid of that lingering fake sweetener aftertaste. 2) Definitely add your coolant of choice. It's a wonderful fit with this. I just added a few drops of WS-23 and it was so refreshing.

Mixed this up looking for something to do with that incredible PUR Watermelon. Accidentally forgot about it for a month. While I'm sure it's very tasty after a short steep, it doesn't hold up well over time. Something, I'm guessing the meringue, gives it a kind of warm cheesy off-note. Also the fruits are indistinct, melded together, not necessary a bad thing, just an observation. Would try this again without the meringue or without such a long steep.

It's melonious, it's funky, I really dig it. It gets five stars for accuracy, flavor, and pleasantly scratching my WS-23 itch. It delivers, as advertised, a sweet, juicy, rich, not-your-average cantaloupe flavor. I think this praise needs to come with a caveat, though: This melon is ripe AF. Some will taste it as overly ripe, I'm afraid. If you want some crunch or snap from your cantaloupe, the idea of a mushy melt-in-your-mouth version yucks you out, and you're sensitive to the sometimes cloyingly funkiness of fully ripened melons, it might be a recipe for you to pass over. But if "that almost custardy thick note that a really ripe cantaloupe" has is your jam, I say waste no time in getting it mixed up.

It tastes like this mixer was dissatisfied by the standalone flavor of CAP Sweet Lychee, set out to add things to it to make it as good as he possibly could, and definitely succeeded.

So glad this recipe was remembered! I taste something like a soft, cakey cookie with pumpkin-spice frosting. It's undoubtedly autumnal without being so terribly in-your-face with the spices, and both gentle and interesting enough to vape all day. Neither dry nor soggy with the spice bakery notes, just enough richness, a smooth vape, and nothing that tastes weird, out of place, or in need of adjustment. All harmony and balance. I could not ask for anything more out of a recipe with "fall" in the name. Something about this is also delightfully feminine. The way it's lightly flavored without being under-flavored, maybe. It's delicate, but not weak. I feel like I'm vaping a woman's take on what a fall flavor should be. It takes me back to happy moment in time that occurred in autumn and involved fall flavors, and then it's gone and I'm reminded of how much I miss that moment, and my heart breaks a little. That is a major compliment to the recipe. It's complex yet free of distraction, and vague enough to be open to interpretation, so it encourages making your own connections. It makes me wonder what autumn memories it might awaken in others.

This is a Swisher Sweet. I know there's not a Swisher straight raspberry (the closest is raspberry-grape), but if there was one, this would be it. I very much enjoyed the experience. Can't think of anything I'd do to try to improve it. I did noticed that some of the flavors here didn't seem to melt together perfectly. Although all of the flavors were always present, some hits were much more ashy, others much more fruity, and some were much sweeter, almost dessert-like. I don't know if that should be considered a bug. It kinda kept it interesting and fun in a never know what you're gonna get way.

The point of forcing this into existence was to push ConcreteRiver over the edge once and for all with this ridiculous profile. But as they tend to do, my evil scheme backfired. The only one it drove crazy was me, trying to figure out how it might be possible to do this better. I can't, not with any confidence anyway. While technically very impressive, the only reason I'm not completely in love with this juice is maybe this profile just isn't something that lends itself to vaping particularly well, but we all know whose fault that is. For a trip, give someone else this to vape and walk through a cloud of it. Even the room note is like lifting the cover off of a plate of grilled peach halves with something like mascarpone and honey filling the craters in them. That cream with honey drizzle topping is the best part because it's just perfect, but the peaches work, too. I'm done betting against this guy. Even when he loses, he wins.

Holy hell, this stuff is off the charts!!! Fear showed this recipe to me Saturday night and I'm vaping it now with about a 24 hour steep. At the time, I had no description at all, only the recipe. The feedback I gave him before he published it is suspiciously close to the description. "It tastes like one of those rare occasions when we get winter-esque weather for Thanksgiving. That's how perfect for fall it is... Doesn't really come across as a 'tobacco' juice to me but rather something more abstract... It's like a manly, outdoorsy cinnamon bakery... Like going dove or quail hunting on a crisp fall morning and stopping to snack on a still-warm cinnamon bun that was packed for you.. Feels weird vaping this and looking down to see a black t-shirt and not red flannel... I'm not saying it tastes like a cinnamon bun, I'm saying it tastes like all of that put together. The red flannel shirt, the shotgun hunting, the fall, the morning, the fresh cinnabunn, the fact that someone (little lady) packed it for you, it tastes like all of that... Unless it steeps into something unpleasantly weird after five or six days and doesn't come back to being amazing after two weeks, stop fucking with it... I think I love you." Those were my exact words, with ellipsis representing breaks when I stopped messaging him to suck down some more Pheasant Ridge and leaving out some boring discussion about the rise and fall of CAP CDS. Anyway. Abuela, Cardinal, and now this. Marry me, Fear. We'll make beautiful recipes together and live happy ever after.

This is pretty good stuff. I've tried neither the Marshmallow Man nor any purported clones of it, but I have no trouble believing this is an improvement on all of those. The TFA VBIC and CAP Sugar Cookie taste like excellent choices to give that marshmallow some thickness and texture. I think it's successful for what it is. I'm really on the fence here between 4 and 5 stars and the only reason I'm going with 4 is because the Super Sweet tastes like a bit much on the end, it goes from merely carrying the flavor on the tongue and giving a little sugar lips to "Here's a tasty marshmallow... and a pinch of Splenda." It's still a tasty recipe, but that keeps it out of ADV territory. Of note, I didn't add the Holy Vanilla but I wish I had, I think it would have taken up a notch marshmallow with light vanilla to a full-on vanilla marshmallow.

This should be called “F’n Delicious Perfect Mouthfeel Vanilla Custard.” Wonderful custard recipe that’s very interesting and tastes like a bowl of fancy restaurant vanilla custard with some homemade vanilla whipped cream on top. Amazing smoothness that just rolls off the palate. But it shouldn’t have references to pumpkin or pie anywhere in the description. There’s no spice beyond what you might call the spice from the vanilla. No one would add that silky pumpkin pie filling to a custard without adding spice, that’s just silly. Add any amount of FLV Pumpkin Spice to this from 0.25% to 0.75% and you’ve probably got yourself a perfect Pumpkin Custard. Add some crust like FA Apple Pie and you’ve got a Pumpkin Custard Pie. It is a bit too sucralosy to me but that’s just so subjective, YMMV. I wouldn’t recommend leaving it out, but maybe reducing it to somewhere between a 0.25 and 0.4% would cut down on that Splenda aftertaste.

This is a tasty, interesting recipe. I’ve never had a fried pumpkin fritter but it seems to hit the profile right. Rich fried doughy taste with pumpkin, cinnamon, and vanilla. I do think there’s a small room for improvement though. There’s a slight sourness here even with the steep and it think it’s from the CDS and the way the CDS is reacting to either the Pumpkin Pie or the high % of Zeppola. This probably could be improved with FLV Rich Cinnamon instead of CDS, and then coming back and making up those missing bready notes with some Sugar Cookie or Biscuit. Overall though, this seems like a great idea pretty well executed and it’s worth a mix just to have something seasonal and somewhat familiar, yet different.

Excellent idea, unvapable results. The throat hit from 8% Belgian Waffle is fierce. If you're looking for a Pumpkin Spice Waffle, steer clear of this one and try adding 0.75% FLV Pumpkin Spice to "Waffle Pop" by Chrisdvr1, which uses the same Belgian Waffle flavor at a much more palatable level, along with making better use of buttery creams to smooth it out.

DO NOT MIX. Here's what I think happened: I think Chris was putting the ingredients in for this and accidentally switched the %ages for CAP Sweet Cream and FW Vanilla Bean Ice Cream. A simple mistake, it happens. And I think it might be a tasty recipe with those %s swapped.. A little Lemon Sicily seems like it would be an excellent accent to TFA Pom. But, as written with 6% CAP Sweet Cream and 1.25% FW VBIC, I found this to be disgusting; it tastes like pomegranate bubblegum bits suspended in putrid margarine. There's no way the creator of the most popular recipe of all time, Sugar Cookies & Cream, as well as various other excellent recipes, did this on purpose.

This is some tasty juice! I really enjoyed the way you get each of the three parts separately; the tangy Pom, the dark earthy sweet Blueberry, and especially the smooth, satisfying vanilla finish. I'm surprised and delighted that the two syrupy fruits had some nice separation. Can't find anything as far as room for improvement, this just tastes well-crafted to me. The only reservation I have about highly recommending it is that think you have to like blueberries in general and FW Blueberry in particular to appreciate it. It is probably not going to magically make you like blueberries. But if you're a blueberry fan, dig in! Thanks for the great vape Dr. Doob!

This is yummy. Pomegranate-Blueberry is an excellent fruit blend that made for an enjoyable vape, so that's where the five stars are coming from. That said, I'm disappointed that I'm not getting any apple for this. I wouldn't know it was in there if I hadn't mixed it myself. I'm sure it's working behind the scenes to help make this so tasty, but Apple is the A in APB and I'd love to really taste it. Please note, I didn't SNV this. I didn't get a chance to try it until it had already steeped for 4 to 5 days. So it might be there in a fresh mix.

My palate rejects the premise that In Godda Da Vida was missing anything at all. In fact I consider that assertion to be something akin to heresy or sacrilege. However, this made for a slightly different and equally delicious vape as Godda, with the Sweet Mango blending in and sweetening and ripening the Papaya part. It makes me want to play around with adding a little summin summin to Godda as well, something I previously would not have entertained, as it seems like desecrating a DIY treasure. So this recipe is either inspirational or a bad influence, depending on your point of view. But the bottom line is that it's a helluva great vape.

As one of the judges who had to vape the recipe that he used to lose to ConcreteRiver in a head-to-head mixoff, I think Kyle has performed his penance admirably and is to be commented.

The earlier version of this that I tried, without the Cream Fresh or Kentucky Bourbon, was already delicious. This is updated version is even better. I've had had this strange lovechild of a s'more and a banana split, but now I feel like I'm in the Poconos doing just that. DJ Mills knocked another one out of the park!

This is ridiculously great stuff, way better than Longing. I never would have guessed FLV Ginger and TFA Honeysuckle would fit together so well. Putting those two together definitely deserves a checking of the original recipe box. I like it better after a few days, when those two have time to calm down and intertwine a bit more, so if it's too floral or gingery at first, just give it time.

And it is now one of my favorite S&V recipes as well! Is indeed reminiscent of Pop Rocks, such an inventive use of Pink Champagne and Kiwi in a candy profile, and I get no throat hit from the sometimes harsh Swedish Gummy. Great stuff.

Terrifying and beautiful, just the way I like 'em. Completely concur with Philosaphucker and Kopel reviews below. Would love to see an updated version with a better coolant, though.

I've never had watermelon wine but this simple, tasty recipe is what I imagine it would be like. Sweet, sweet watermelon with just a little boozy backnote. Excellent job, Tam!

Bought the recipe pack at BCF. Mixed on 8/26 and sort of accidentally let it steep until 11/1. Tobacco notes have taken a backseat by now and I get a delicious, sweet, warm caramel with lots of vanilla and smooth bourbon. Like eating caramel creams and drinking wonderful bourbon at the same time. I wish I'd tried it sooner and gotten some 'baccy as well but it still fits the bill for a warming vape well-suited to crispier autumn nights. Rest assured this is one you can make a huge batch of and not have to worry about it not being delicious if you take months to finish it.

Mixed 8/1, vaped 10/31. I built up a ton of anticipation and high expectations steeping this for so long, so that's probably where one of the possible 5 stars went. It's not fair, as it would be nigh impossible to reach such a high bar, but there it is. The other star was stolen by INW Creme Brulee used in excess. It tastes too burnt to me up that high, I would even describe it as acrid. Even with such a long steep? Especially with such a long steep. It seems to get stronger over time. It made it hard to enjoy this recipe. However, I LOVE the idea of a darkly sweet, smoked custard and would jump to try a revised version. I'm not sure whether the rest of the recipe would require rebalancing without trying it first, it probably would, but I feel like just cutting the Creme Brulee in half would go a long way toward making this recipe a winner.

This is the highest I've ever found CAP Super Sweet to be enjoyable, but it is very enjoyable here, and I'll be damned if that doesn't taste just like a Jolly Rancher watermelon gummy. Excellent recipe!

Well that is simply delicious. And why wouldn't it be? I mean, just look at the ingredients. The way they come together here is very interesting; I get individual aspects of mango/peach and strawberry/mixed berry that are intertwined without being combined and nothing remotely unpleasant or out of place.

Oh man, the combination of Toffee (and toffee enhancers) + tobaccos (that dynamic duo of Burley and Cured, along with the Tantanka) here is everything I hoped it would be and more! I skipped the S&V option on this one but let it steep 14 days to make sure the tobaccos had time to come back from that weird little vacation they like to take from days 4ish to 12ish. Perfection. I wasn't in a hurry to try this one until after I fell hard in love with Fear's Pheasant Ridge recipe; it convinced me to trust his judgment when it comes to FLV Toffee. You're next, Prapple Bacco!

Fantastic facsimile of one of those Starbucks Cake Pops after about 15 days, complete with the richness and satisfaction. Definitely worth tracking down FA Pandoro for this beauty.

If you're a tobacco lover who tried Tripoli and thought it needed bolder, truer tobacco notes and more spice, you'll probably love this one. If you prefer dessert vapes and thought Tripoli was too spicy and not sweet enough, you probably won't.

I hate this recipe, because I hate fruitcake, and this tastes like a fruitcake. I think if you're some kind of weirdo and actually like fruitcake, you'll love it. Somehow the spice and cherry in Cavendish seem to be pulled out or amplified by the other flavors so they leave the tobacco behind to become part of a spice blend. Cookie ingredients become too soft for that, the closest it gets to cookie is maybe the outside of a dark spicy cake, all the surfaces that touched the pan. Neither fully separated into layers nor fully blended together into one thing, various fruity, spicy, and bakery flavors seem to come and go all willy nilly, so it not only has fruitcake flavor, it works like one too, in that there are lots of bits of dried fruit in here, but you don't necessarily get all of them, with the exception of orange zest, in every bite. That's cool. As for the spices, I would call this definitively cloven and orange-zested. There's much more going on spice-wise but they stand out less than those two and just come across to me as a undefined spicy complexity. There's some considerable sweetness here but not beyond what fits the profile.

Recipe is pretty terrible, TBH. FLV Fig does not fit here at all; the dark musky flavor clashes hard with the watermelon. However, I think swapping the FLV Fig out for FA Fresh Fig would be all one would need to do to turn this bad recipe into a good and possibly even great one. What we've got here is simply a bad case of wrong fig for the job.

This is already a great vape. I certainly am not sorry I mixed it and will be happily finishing my 40ml. But there's room for improvement in the fig: FLV Fig (0.75%ish) would be so much better instead of CAP Fig here. Its boldness would stand up better to the high % of Toasted Marshmallow, its muskiness would enhance the rather light tobacco notes, its darkness would be a much better fit for that awesome description of FIg's existential crisis.

I love the idea of this one and it's not terrible to vape, but the bright, fresh, and almost floral qualities of the FA Fig Fresh is really clashing with otherwise nice Kentucky-Catalan combo for me. This tastes like it would be much better with a darker, slightly musky fig, specifically CAP Fig, but not FLV Fig because that would be going to far and competing with the Catalan spices.

Pretty tasty vape, if you like these CAP ingredients, as I do, but a bit muddled. Also, not quite an accurate clone. The Maple Syrup is out of place and it's not a very good flavor anyway; I would not recommend buying it if you haven't already. Just mix this up without it. Would probably be just as good if not better without the Marshmallow as well.

Outstanding sweet, rich, buttery almond cookie! Should have made a bigger batch, I absolutely love this stuff. If you have WF Almond Cookie and have been wondering what to do with it or how to make it better, this is the answer. It has, as stated, just the right balance between dry and moist for a homemade type of cookie with almond inside and out, not one of those dried out crumbly ones. I recommend steeping longer than the 3 days suggested by the creator to let the nail polish remover off-note from Vienna Cream fully steep out. I accidentally waited 19 days but 5 to 7 should do it.

Excellent combination of flavors and use of Maple Syrup! I just have a couple of nitpicky issues with this one. The high % of FLV Cookie Dough is giving me too much raw dough flavor almost to the point of a maple cookie dough versus a baked cookie. It's both a profile accuracy and a taste thing. I love soft, slightly undercooked cookies but I'm sure this recipe would be better with 4/2 Sugar Cookie/Cookie Dough instead of 3/3. Second, the sucralose, and I know this is highly subjective, but the 0.5% that works in some other recipes is coming across as too much here. It tastes "tacked on" rather than the integrated into the juice, so the final impression it leaves is less sugary maple cookie and more maple cookie followed by a half a teaspoon of Splenda. Not sure how much would work better, 0.25%? 0.35%? But less.

This is a masterpiece. On the first few draws I didn't care for it, I found it too floral and even almost medicinal. But before I needed to redrip, I was in love. It doesn't taste like grape and plum mixed other, it justs taste purple. Purple on a thick bed of fluffy white slightly vanilla-flavored creamy serenity. And while all that healing stones nonsense is bull, there is such a thing as healing flavors, and that's what this is. It's calming and meditative -- everything promised in the description is delivered. Think partly cloudy purple sunset in bottle. Beautiful recipe.
