A thick scoop of vanilla ice cream plunked down into a tall glass of sweet and tangy cherry soda. We all float down here.

E-Juice Makers

Although, unlike the Paradise Cream, no one has asked for this discontinued as a one-shot by Chef's Flavours, here it is, anyway. This recipe was inspired by trying a soft drink called "Cheerwine" and imaging how it would be as a float. I needed a lot of candy cherry, so I pushed INW Cherries as far as could without getting medicinal off notes, then added as much FA Black Cherry as I could darken it with and still avoid that yuck. Still not enough cherry, but TFA Pomegranate worked very well to fill in the cherry to get where it needed to go without any issues. I used CAP Lemon Lime for the tart, citrusy quality of the soda. TFA Sweet And Tart served three purposes: More sweetness, more tartness, and that powdery aspect to try to emulate what bubbles would remain in the soda after ice cream was floated in it. You have to remember, this was before VT Fizzy Sherbet or FLV Citrus Soda existed. TFA VBIC was an easy route to ice cream, with TFA Whipped Cream the foamy part where ice cream meets soda. As with the Paradise Cream, I've been meaning to improve the recipe for some time now and then release the improved version... and just haven't gotten around to it. As with the Paradise Cream, when I do, it's definitely going to have the TFA VBIC replaced with LB's Vanilla Ice Cream. It might also a need touch of HS French Vanilla Ice Cream , and replacing TFA Whipped Cream with FLV's version. That combination of LB Vanilla Ice Cream, HS French Vanilla Ice Cream, and FLV Whipped Cream worked so well in TamVapes' Jacked Up Sundae. Of course that might take some rebalancing of the other ingredients, but I'm unlikely to abandon them, even for the likes of FLV CItrus Soda or VT Fizzy Sherbet. They WORK here. But until that all gets sorted out, I hope anyone who is interested enjoys the original recipe.

Sweet purple mango and rich vanilla ice cream come together to take you to paradise.

E-Juice Makers

Since this recipe was discontinued as a one-shot by Chef's Flavours, I've gotten a couple of requests for the recipe. After being told today that someone spent a bunch of money trying to find the same passion fruit flavor that's in there (as you can see, there isn't one), I thought I'd better release the recipe just in case there was any chance of anything like that happening again. The FLV Mango + FA Violet combination is a pairing I've been enamoured of since Kopel released his recipe, Mango Beauregarde. I used it in this with his permission. The vanilla ice cream base is the same one I used for Longing, but with a lot more TFA VBIC to thicken it up against these thinner, juicer ingredients, like FLV Mango. I'm still in love with this profile, but I've been meaning to improve the recipe for some time now and then release the improved version... just haven't gotten around to it. When I do, it's definitely going to have the TFA VBIC replaced with LB's Ice Cream. It might also have a touch of VT Shisha Mango... and who knows what else. We'll see. In the meantime, hope anyone interested enjoys the original recipe.

LoOk, everyone knows that Chewy Sprees are superior to crunchy Sprees. And many people are saying that Grape is the best chewy Spree flavor. Now you can vape that.

TFA Energy Drink Doesn't taste exactly like anything IRL that I'm aware of, but if you gave it to me blindfolded and asked if it was either an energy drink or a grape Sweet Tart candy flavor, I'd be forced to go with grape Sweet Tart. It's got a lot going on, including some energy drink elements, but I get some candy grape in the top notes and a powdery, sugary finish that would certainly seal it as "supposed to be a grape Sweet-Tart" in blind either/or test.

But it's not grapey enough, so I added SC Grape from Bull City to it to push that candy grape flavor front and center. It's the LA Watermelon of grapes, like the essence of grape Blow Pop (minus the gum) on its own, but thin and flat. Which is fine, because this gets plenty of body from the Energy Drink and the magic of WF Chews Candy, which is really neat stuff. The top notes are a little sharper and tart and more like a vaguely fruity candy shell, while the base is more like a thick candy that rides the line between powdery and chewy, much like a chewy Spree. The tart part is such a mess of fruitiness that I can’t very clearly pick out a single fruit, but it leans a little more toward something like a candy apple and candy grape combination, other stuff behind it. I pick up a hint of vanilla in the powdery-to-chewy base that seems to contribute to the thickness and body or chewiness, kind of like when adding a very low dose of TFA Vanilla Swirl for volume in a candy fruit recipe and still having a bit of vanilla peeking out (not enough vanilla to show up in this recipe, though). And it works, lots of volume here. Lingering powdery but not chalky or overly dry sweetness. Just a super fun flavor to play with.

THIS IS HAWAIIAN PUNCH

If you've ever wanted to vape Hawaiian Punch and been frustrated by flavors like TFA Hawaiian Islands Punch Type, FW Tropical Punch, CAP Silverline Tropical Fruit Punch, and FLV Tropical Punch, which fall short, this recipe is for you.

Sweetener is optional but so highly recommended that I've left the high amount of FW Sweetener that I prefer with it in the recipe. It drives that super sugary drink experience home. You could use less. If you don't have FW and want to use CAP Super Sweet, 0.5 to 0.75% should get 'er done. Or again, use less if you prefer. TFA Sweetener is not recommended here. Coolants are optional but are not recommended. WS-23 kinda ruins it, unfortunately. A touch of FA Polar Blast doesn't hurt much, but it does somewhat distract from the experience.

This recipe is the product of a partnership in which I played a relatively minor role. I asked @AlfredPudding why he does this to me, refuses full credit for his work like he did with the Back Nine recipe and makes me be the one to share it, and he says it's to torture me. That's ok, I like the abuse. But this time, instead of merely asserting that Alfred did all the work and moving along to flavor notes, I offer a mostly unredacted report of the events that led to this recipe:

This all started when I tried Alfred's Cherry Bomb and told him I thought it was about 5% INW Pineapple shy of Hawaiian Punch. He sent me back a recipe he called "Counter Point" that did indeed have 5% INW Pineapple, but also had more Cherries, less Sweet Guava, FA Forest Fruit instead of Rainbow Candy, and CAP Yellow Peach instead of TFA Jackfruit. So I tried that and responded with "Counter Counter Point" - A recipe with little less Pineapple, a little less Peach, a little more Sweet Guava, some TFA Smooth to blend it together, and a bunch of sweetener that it seemed to be crying out for. Minor adjustments and fairly obvious additions. I got back a Counter Counter Counter Point, with a hair less Apricot and no more Forest Fruit. This was Hawaiian Punch.... but yet... not. It was too soft. More like Hawaiian love tap. The only difference in this final version is half as much Smooth as the Counter Counter Counter Point, as it is still providing the blending it needed but not over-softening its punch.

Congressman Devin Nunes fucks farm animals. But prosecutors in Fresno, California, have declined to pursue charges, determining that it's not abuse because his dinky little ding dong is too small for the animals to feel it. Putin has video of Trump giving Devin Nunes an oral creampie while Devin tries to pee on an underage hooker, but fails because Devin's stream ain't got that much steam. Devin Nunes is the lowest IQ person ever elected to Congress, he has a positively Gumpian level of intelligence, so dumb you won't believe how many school administrators got to plow his mom's squonker before he was allowed to graduate.

I don't know whether any of that is true. But I know "many people are saying" those things. I also know Devin Nunes hates free speech. He recently sued Twitter for allowing to exist a couple of parody accounts that hurt his poor little snowflake feelings. As result, the previously relatively unknown Twitter account for Devin Nunes' cow now has more followers than Devin Nunes himself. Now, he's also suing a newspaper's parent company because the paper printed a story about some people on a yacht doing cocaine with hookers who were possibly underage in 2015. A story that nobody read outside of Nunes' little corner of California four years ago. No one alleged Devin Nunes was on that yacht, used cocaine, or had sex with prostitutes, but his name came up due to his business connection with the incident via his partnership in a winery that was involved, so he's suing. Read the story that's got his little pink panties all in a bunch. Lyin' Devin Nunes is lying when he says the newspaper lied about him; it's all part of his new career as a professional victim.

And now #YachtCocaineProstitutes is soaring on Twitter, and will forever be tied to Devin Nunes.

I just wanted to vape this moment, the moment when the Streisand Effect became the Streisand-Nunes effect.

VT Blood Orange Champagne for the boat. FA Papaya for the hoes (ask Mitt Romney why). OoO Powdered Sugar for the nose.

This is damn delicious. V1 had Wild Melon instead of Papaya. I fell instantly in love with the combination of Powdered Sugar and Blood Orange Champagne, but Wild Melon just didn't seem like the best complement for it. Pondered many other melons, but none of the honeydews or watermelons seemed like a good idea. I got out FA Melon Cantaloupe and WF Ripe Galia Melon. Smelling them before deciding whether I really wanted to try them, I thought FA Melon Cantaloupe smelled right. Smelled WF Ripe Galia Melon and realized that particular flavor might be taking the prostitutes thing a little too literally, there's a reason why that one's nicknamed Butthole Melon. Then it hit me. Papaya. But TFA Papaya was too overwhelming, and even WF Papaya was a bit much. Went back and tried the Melon Cantaloupe and it was so much better than Wild Melon here that I thought I was done. But, I decided to try FA Papaya, just for the sake of due diligence. WOW am I glad I did. It fills out the bottom of this perfectly. Though Melon Cantaloupe was delicious, it's bit of rindyness was at war with the Blood Orange's artificiality. FA Papaya can be a little funky on it's own, but in this mix it made pure candy, Blood Orange-Papaya-Champagne Powder Candy, like a flavor of Pixie Stick that doesn't exist but if it did, it would be so good you might want to snort it.

Mixed Live with Fresh and Friends on 3/23 .

Wanted three scoops of vanilla ice cream topped with fresh ripe mango chunks and pineapple tidbits. Tastes more like that ice cream with fresh mango puree and crushed canned pineapple, but I'm happy with it. I'll call it a work in progress and see how it steeps out.

Swiped The Trinity Vanilla Ice Cream by Eyemakepizza; it's a deeply satisfying shake and vapeable vanilla ice cream base and I never thought to change it.

VT Shisha Mango and FLV Mango. Muah! Perfection. Ripe sweet mango right on top.

The pineapple part was a bit trickier. WF Pineapple Candy is a flavor I opened for the first time today and haven't tried as a single flavor. It smells like a kinder, gentler TFA Pineapple. But I remembered that one of the first things I ever made that I liked when I started mixing was a pineapple ice cream that was mostly TFA Pineapple and Vanilla Bean Ice Cream, with a little marshmallow to soften that sharp pineapple. I was advised to use it between 2 and 3% and back it up with another pineapple that would give it some body because it's a bit thin. I first tried it at 2.5% with 0.75% FLV Pineapple, but it tasted like pineapple candy in my ice cream, with some bits of underripe banana as well. This version with the Pineapple Candy down at 2% and swapping out the FLV Pineapple for CAP Golden Pineapple worked much better. I love it so much I set off my smoke alarm sucking it down greedily.

Don't hesitate to give the Trinity Vanilla Ice Cream a try, let Eyemakepizza know what you think, and pile your flavorite fruits or other ice cream toppings on it.

Mixed Live on SaturDIY'ing with Fresh & Friends.

Set out to make a Phillies/White Owl Banana Blunt. This is not that. After version 1 came out tasting like eating a banana marshmallow in a tobacco shop, I whipped up this remix with help from Fresh and his chat. It came out too good for a bottom shelf blunt. This is a top-shelf banana cigar. It's the Banana Abuela.

Unless you’re a pepper taster who can’t vape TFA White Chocolate, there was nothing wrong with @ExclusiveGirl’s Green Tea Kit Kat recipe from October 2016. It was a great idea, well-crafted from the best ingredients at the time. But at the time was more than two years ago. We’ve got better tools for this job now. FE Green Tea is better than TFA (grass) or FA (ass) but it’s still too floral, thankfully we now have FLV Eisai Tea, which tastes much closer to the matcha flavoring in those Green Tea Kit Kats. WF Crispy Wafer also better job than CAP Sugar Cookie in getting that crispy inside. I’ve replaced TFA White Chocolate with a combination of FLV and FW White Chocolates – no more black pepper and a great combination of top and mid-range notes that I'm again stealing from @jbird – and added some sweetness. Earlier versions were missing some creaminess, so I carried over one ingredient from the original recipe, CAP Vanilla Whipped Cream, which fills a small gap in the white chocolate duo.

WF Butter Pecan Pie is yummy, but its name drove me nuts and I had to try to "fix" it. It just tastes like butter pecan ice cream minus all of the ice cream. Or, something that could pass for the top part of the pie, with all the baked pecans, cooked sugar sweetness, and extra butter. But where's the eggy goopy inside? Why does it have "pie" in the name when I'm not getting even a hint of crust. FA Apple Pie takes some time to come out but I'm only getting the hint of pie crust I wanted from it at 1%, no apple or other fruit, no apple pie spice. INW Custard fills it out wonderfully. Three other versions didn't work the way I wanted them to. FA Custard Premium 2% was enough to take over and turn it into a custard recipe. Lovely, but off-topic. Not a pie. CAP Vanilla Custard 2% fit the pie profile and tasted good but that unmistakable Capella vanilla stuck out, calling too much attention to itself in an annoying way. The INW Creme Brulee 2% that someone suggested gave it a nice sweetness but wasn't custardy enough for a pie filling and tasted a little burnt.

Ginger, Pear, Tobacco

If you decide to try this or it inspires you to mix something similar, please thank @ChemicalBurnVictim. He was one of the sources of inspiration and it was his suggestion to switch from using FLV Virginia Tobacco to FLV Oriental Tobacco that gave it that Turkish pipe tobacco vibe that I was looking for.

This all started with wanting to “fix” INW Falcon Eye to be more like a combination of what INW told me it would be, what CBV told me it tasted like to him, and what I tasted. CBV said it mostly tasted like ginger to him; my theory is that his constant vaping of tobaccos makes it easy for him to pick out anything in a tobacco flavor that isn’t tobacco. When I tried Falcon Eye, I got a sweet cigarette tobacco with a solid hit of spice, but while that spice tasted more like ginger than any other spice I could identify, it wasn’t clearly ginger to me. It was weird, but nice.

Oddly, INW calls Falcon Eye “tobacco with a hint of pear,” with no mention of ginger or spice. Fucking Poland. It did not taste like pear to me, but it did have a strong hint of that sort of earthy skin note that some pear flavors have, without the rest of the pear’s pomaceous body and juicy sweetness.

All this just made me really want a ginger-pear-bacco, so I made one, and it turned out pretty great. I used NF Ginger to pull that odd gingery-spice in a distinctly ginger direction. There’s a good reason why this is one of only two of the whole Nature Flavors’ line you can buy at BCF. It’s super solid as a ginger flavor, very spicy, super accurate. Not nearly as sharp and wet as the very fresh-tasting Vape Train Ginger Root, so probably a bit more versatile than that one. But, still more along the lines of raw ginger rather than dried ginger spice powder, ginger ale syrup, or candied ginger. Very slightly earthy, not floral at all, some thick body to it but not syrupy or creamy. As much as I enjoy FLV Ginger and CAP Gingerbread, if I could only have one ginger, it would be this one.

I used MB Shape Up Pear to fill in the missing pear. This is easily the best single-flavor pear out there. It’s everything you could want in a pear and would otherwise have to mix different concentrates together to get. It’s bold and sweet and juicy and crisp, with a lot of apple-like texture and body, and just a little earthy realism, all well-balanced, smooth, with no off notes for me. Just a perfect pear. If I could only have one pear flavor it would be FA because it’s so useful in sweetening and juicifying a plethora of other fruits, but if I want to really vape a PEAR, this is the one.

And then there were the tobaccos, meant to take the mild, malleable tobacco in Falcon Eye and give it some definition as a robust but lighter pipe tobacco that could complement pear and ginger. I wanted to avoid darkness, cocoa, coffee, caramel, and nutty accents that the pipe-like tobaccos have, but still have a pipe tobacco. I wanted to walk into a weird boutique tobacco shop and see some light brown leaf, be told it’s “ginger pear pipe tobacco,” and have Falkor be a deep nose-full of what that smelled like. Users of FLV Virginia Tobacco can maybe tell why I went with a Kentucky + Virginia first? It was a mistake, though. The result was roll-your-own cigarette ginger pear tobacco. CBV came to the rescue by suggesting Oriental instead of Virginia, which until now was an underused flavor for me, and keeping the little bit of that subtly spicy and darker Kentucky Blend in the mix.

Steep Time: This is actually great after sitting overnight. The ginger will taste strong at first, but after a few hits I get used to it. Still, it’s more of a GINGER pear tobacco. Shortly afterward, the FLV tobaccos seem to fade a bit and more pear comes out more, making a ginger PEAR tobacco. After a couple of weeks, they come back, the ginger settles down, and the mix stays relatively stable. In the end, the pear is no longer as prominent as I originally intended it to be, but the juice has that elusive, perfect wet/dry balance between the pear and tobaccos, which, together with the spice keeping things interesting, makes it hard to put down and worth putting out.

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!

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 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.

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 3 years 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!!!

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! Thank you for this!

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.

If this is what a penis literally tastes like, maybe I've been playing for the wrong team all along. There's enough going on here to keep it very interesting but not so much as to be a mess. 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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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 have a vape that 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.

Rosemary custard is a weird profile and this will no doubt have some people who just plain don't like it, but I've dug into this thing looking for some flaws or at least possible room for improvement and found nothing.

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 %.

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'm pretty mad right now because I have creations to work on, flavors to test, and other recipes to try, but in order to do that, I have to stop vaping this... and I can't. Fuck you, Goldfish. 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. UPDATE: Tried this again after just one week and wasn’t nearly as impressed. There’s a bell pepperish taste that I don’t remember getting after a three-week steep. If you try this and don’t like it because of that, let it steep longer.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

UPDATE: LOOKS LIKE THE ERROR HAS BEEN CORRECTED! Changing one stars to five for now, until I get a chance to try the correct recipe and re-review it. Meanwhile, please disregard the following as a review of this recipe and instead enjoy it as a cautionary tale: 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. If you want A in your PB and want it last longer, maybe add more Fuji or bring another apple to the party.

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.

It's no Fiestas and Fiascos (by ConcreteRiver, one of my all time favorite recipes ever), but like F&F, this is very different than anything else out there and also fun to vape. This truly unique recipe does taste like what I imagine eating a very underripe blueberry would taste like, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. 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. Let us all rejoice that he can now shed his Rick suit and be Shyn again.

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.

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.

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.

This is amazing! I was one who was intrigued by the original recipe but let down by it; I left it a 3-star review. Cutting back on the Creme Brulee made all the difference. It left the caramelized sugar crust but nixed the acrid burnt note that marred the original, and now after steeping for two months (I meant to try it at 1 month but life happened) it's this sinfully decadent, wickedly smoky, rich vanilla custard that's a perfect antidote (alongside a strong cup of black coffee) to the bummer of once again failing to die in my sleep. I think I've found the perfect October/November morning recipe here. Love it!

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!

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.
User: ID10-T Score: 4 Entered: about 2 years ago
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 together, it just tastes 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.

This is a tasty recipe. Does Juicy Peach really do some magic on Sweet Raspberry? Yes it does. I don't even think 6% Sweet Raz would be palatable without it, so that's a pretty damn neat trick. Sharing this trick is a special kind of community service for people who don't have access to better Blue Raz flavors such as OSDIY's Blue Raz Slushy. It doesn't really taste as "blue" as I want it too, but it's quite bit better than TFA and FW Blue Raz flavors.

Somewhere between a Snowball and Hostess Cupcake sounds about right to me, though the coconut is a little toasty and the Snowball's coconut flakes are raw. The overall amount of coconut is too light for a Snowball but I can definitely taste it. I'm sorry for anyone who can't because it's very nice. Regardless, it's a nice chocolate cake that even has that mass-produced Hostess flavor, with a fluffy cream filling. Sometimes you just have to stop worrying about what it is just worry about how it tastes. It tastes great. Since I find Lava Cake basically has no cake at all and is pretty much a hot fudge sundae topping flavor (a yummy one at that), I'd been wondering how it would react to having some JF Yellow Cake added to it. I appreciate this answering that question; it makes a Hostess chocolate cupcake flavor.

Super enjoyable! It tastes a lot like what I remember Chimes ginger-mango candy tasting like. It's mouthwatering just like them, too. The ginger is definitely not a ginger ale type, a dry powdered ginger, or a fresh ginger, it's a lot more like Gin Gins or other ginger candies, which makes for a great vape. It also seems to be obliterating everything I don't like about CAP Sweet Mango, which some help from the FLV Mango and the Honeysuckle, but mostly it's the ginger doing that. It seems like an important discovery, learning that a little ginger can clean up that horribly overripe mango. I like how CAP Sweet Mango rides lower in the recipe instead of just sitting on top and pulls FLV down with it. Cactus of course helps make it juicy and fortunately I get that but don't get any of the Cactus taste, so that was clearly used here with great success here. I did not get much discrete honeysuckle flavor from it. I'm sure it wouldn't be the same or as good without it, but it seems to get overwhelmed by the sweet and syrupy ginger and mango. I do get a bit of honey but it still seems more like one of those candy chews than a "nectar." Which isn't a problem for me at all, I love those things. I almost took it down to 4 stars for being called nectar and not really seeming nectarty, and the honey drizzle on top actually seeming out of place with everything else, but it's just so darn tasty and that mango + ginger thing worked terrifically. 4.5 stars?

This came out lovely. I get clearly defined layers of juicy kiwi, unique pastry reminiscent of a doughy pie crust, and a sweet-but-slightly tangy cream. I'm not really tasting pineapple but the kiwi definitely seems improved - moistened, sweetened, tarted up - by it. Something is giving it a cooked feel as if baked in a tart and I dig it. Other than it being described as a pineapple tart and the pineapple having faded into merely a kiwi modifier after a long steep, I can't find anything to complain about here. Lots of recipes promise layers but actually just taste like most of the flavors are blended together. This one, however, delivers. And there's something special about that Apple Pie/Zeppola tart crust combo.

I initially mixed this recipe on 12/8. On the 3-day steep recommended, I thought it tasted like a terrifically accurate representation of a coconut macaroon. Unfortunately for me, it reminded me that I don't really like coconut macaroons all that much, but that's no fault of the recipe, I just am not a huge fan of the things. 5 stars for accuracy, though from this mixer that's no surprise. I set it aside with the intention of writing a review for it later, got busy with other things, and forgot about it. Tried it again 1/22 and wow has it changed. Much of the coconut has faded and a strong caramel flavor has come out. A delicious, strong caramel flavor. I love this stuff now. Also worth noting, it tastes like all it would need is a touch of the right chocolate flavor or flavors to become a Samoa cookie recipe, for anyone who might be chasing that.

This combination of Sweet Coconut, Vanilla Pudding, and Whipped Cream is just perfect for a coconut pudding pie. If there were a compelling reason why this had to be an all-FLV recipe, this would be a 5-star recipe. If there were a contest recipe and had to be all-FLV, I think it would win. But with so many other options for cookie crust, why? FLV Cookie as no crunch, and the slight maple note it has a short steep comes out even more after steeping this for six weeks and really distracts from that wonderful coconut cream pudding. I want to try this again using something like a combination of CAP Sugar Cookie and FA Cookie for the crust, or maybe scrapping the cookie idea completely and going for a nice graham crust.

DECADENCE. When I first tried this recipe it had only a few days to steep and I liked it, but didn't think it was anything super special. Today I come back to it after a six week steep and it's just wonderfully rich buttery decadence. It's astounding how sweet it has become without any added sweetener. While I agree with the 3-star reviewer that a touch of some nut might help with authenticity on the browning, it seems to have the perfect amount of butteryness, very rich and not at all light, but also not overbearing. And authenticity kinda goes out the window when you taste something this good. I want to keep on vaping it and then mix some more for another long steep. Thanks for a great vape!

I like it a lot. My favorite thing about it is that instead of going for the more obvious TFA Marshmallow or TFA Vanilla Swirl, CAP Vanilla Custard was used to thicken it further than Jelly Candy can. It really makes for a satisfying vape. I will probably steal this use of 1% Vanilla Custard. I think I’d like it even more if it had a little more punch to the lemon - either a little more LA Lemonade and a little less Jelly Candy, or the addition of another, sharper Lemon, just a touch... or maybe if it used FLV Lemonade instead of LoraAnn’s. Regardless, this is a nice recipe and I’m very glad I mixed it up.

If you've ever found a coffee recipe you truly enjoyed, you'll probably love this one. If you never have, maybe you'll enjoy this one. It has come the closest for me to date, but still isn't quite there. I love the very original profile idea here, and I get 100% of everything promised in a recipe that tries very hard to be very delightful. Unfortunately, I'm also picking up just a touch of something else that spoils the experience for me, even after a six-week steep (I first tried it at 3 days as recommended, then set it aside hoping that something would steep out). It's a funky off note that's like trying to indulge in my eggnog coffee and donut in the living room while someone has burnt popcorn in the kitchen and someone else as run over a skunk a block or two down the road. It's hard to really luxuriate in anything with your senses being even gently assaulted by that. I'd like more people to try this recipe as written so I can more accurately assess just how damaged I am when it comes to coffee flavors.

"Salted" is a misnomer; don't try this expecting salt and be disappointed. But it is tasty, simple caramel pecan praline mix. That FW "Salted" Caramel and FW Pralines & Cream makes a terrific pairing and Holy Vanilla fits in perfectly here and finishes that pairing off. I can imagine it being a bit dry and unsatisfying without it. The result is a little vanilla forward for an actual, authentic praline but makes for a great vape if you love vanilla. You get the drier pecan notes on top, followed by a rich caramel-cream body, and then a sweet dark and slightly malty smooth vanilla finish. And yes, I'm already playing with adding tobaccos to this and to the FLV Milk Chocolate version, which makes for a super yummy simple turtle at just 0.25% added to the recipe. Once again Coop proves you don't need a handful of ingredients to make a great juice, just an inspired pairing and a little finishing touch or two.

Stellar recipe. This promises a heaping plate of pancakes covered in blueberry syrup and boy does it deliver! I get exactly that, a gooey syrupy slightly buttery blueberry bite and a soft fluffy bakery. This belongs in a textbook under how-to mix with both the VT Golden Syrup and the WF Crepe. I can't say this recipe needs any tweaks at all, but because I personally get tired of tasting blueberry over time, I'm interested in trying the rest of the recipe out with other fruit flavors that are already a little syrupy. INW Shisha Strawberry is the first one that comes to mind, probably at that same 2%. It's certainly not necessary for enjoying the recipe, but I might also like to experiment with "cooking" these flapjacks a little longer by adding something like 1% or less CAP Sugar Cookie or Cereal 27, or if I wanted to really go after crispy-edged pancakes, maybe a 0.5% or less addition of FA Cookie.

The air is filled with birdsong and flowers burst from newly verdant meadows. Spring is off to a beautiful start, and ConcreteRiver drops one of the most autumnal recipes I've ever tried. Makes sense. Although it couldn't be more out-of-season, it's a deliciously warm apple cider with rich, creamy pudding, as promised, and I think it's one of the more interesting and unusual-yet-addictive recipes to be shared by anyone in too long. The hops just completes that cider and while the pudding looks like it might clash badly, instead it just makes for fascinating contrast and satisfying vape. I'll have to mix another bottle after the first frost.

I was previously certain that any attempt to make an identifiable amount of Cactus work in a tobacco was going to come out tasting like grasshopper spit. I was wrong. It's odd, but it's fun and I definitely dig it. Cactus in a tobacco, and it actually works. Mind blown. I love how you get the cactus juiciness sort of separate from the tobacco, so there's mouthwatering juiciness here but yet it somehow still feels like a dried tobacco.

Sure, there are a lot of different directions this could be taken in. Some vanilla might be nice. Some ginger or cinnamon to complement both the peaches and the Virginia. Something to make it a little more moist. But I also like it just the way it is. I like how the peach is both subtle and natural. Though it tastes like a fruity cigar, it tastes like a fancy fruity cigar and not some bottom-shelf blunt.

Love this. I pick up passionfruit first and foremost, without getting any throat pain from the stuff; seems the secret is to keep it under 1% and mix other things light with it so it still stands out, and also pair it up with things that enhance it. Lots of hibiscus here but the floral stays below the level of getting perfumy, just right for the hibiscus tea profile, and then there's lemongrass with some added citrus that seems to fit in wonderfully with the passionfruit and lemon grass without calling too much attention to itself. Nothing is sticking out as out of place, despite what looks like a whole list of difficult ingredients with the exception of CAP Hibiscus, the only one I see here that I know is forgiving and easy to work with. Rich Cinnamon to give it the earthy warmth of an herbal tea without really tasting of cinnamon? Genius. It's light and refreshing, easy on the palate, but plenty flavorful despite the low total flavoring %. And it has a surprising amount of body to it, it's not a thin, top-heavy vape.

Lucky me got to preview this wildly creative recipe. The detailed description doesn't lie and doesn't leave much else to say, but... I think it tastes like the name, specifically it tastes like taking sips of a hoppy IPA with an unlit cigarette dangling from your mouth, at a bar, in front of an ashtray. It’s an ambitious profile that’s been well-done, in my opinion. I get a mostly pine and citrus inhale and followed by a hops and mixed citrus top of the exhale, with a layer of cigarette-style tobacco coming in underneath. The hops is bold but balanced with the citrus, while the cigarette layer is coming in much softer, which is probably a smart approach here as too much boldness in this sort of tobacco could get unpleasant, I imagine. The tail of the vape finishes with that tobacco building a bit, without the piney tangy taste ever fully disappearing. Can a tobacco be called wet and refreshing? I think it can, in this case. It might appeal to anyone who smoked those Camel Twista Lime cigarettes and remembers them fondly. I think it will probably appeal to mixers looking for any cigarette-style tobacco, or something fun to do with Yakima Hops, and to people looking for something that's definitely different, yet oddly wonderful. Could this be 2018's Grack Juice? I think it might.

Really jumped into that April Fool's theme with both feet, huh? Despite the gross name, I actually liked it, but it's still pretty weird. My first impression was that this tastes like prune juice with chunks of creamy cheese and some honey in it. That impression hasn't changed much after vaping more of it and trying to dissect it, but it's nowhere near as bad as that sounds, actually pretty enjoyable. I get the honey, especially in the finish and aftertaste, but the combination of fig and apple up top, along with honey that makes an appearance there, really gives me a prune juice effect. It's very sweet, and what little pepper I get seems to help offset that, so it might be essential to this not becoming yucky - becoming too musty and sweet at the same time - I don't know. It seems out of sorts with the rest here, just making it all to busy. I wonder what it would be like without the Black Pepper and without the Super Sweet. Would you still get that lingering honey sweetness or does it require the Super Sweet to do that? If this could work without the Super Sweet, it might not need the Pepper. If it relies on it for the honey to work, then maybe it does need both, and it just is what it is. The creamy cheese underneath is working, I like it.It does taste like Brie, and I love Brie with fruit and have no issue with vaping it when it's well-done like this. I want a baked brie and cranberry vape now, someone needs to make that for me because as badly as I want it, I equally don't also want to vape failed attempts at it.

I think you have to let go of the idea that this is supposed to taste like anything to really appreciate it. Is it a realistic mango or mango juice? No, everything here is a bit artificial and candyish. Is it a mango candy? Not quite, it's a little bit too much like an *almost* overripe fruit, got just a bit too much funk on it, to taste like any kind of candy I've ever known, and the tangerine stands out quite a bit. But if you think of it as supposed to taste like a rapidly pinkening orange tropical sunset shared by sweethearts, we have a winner. I get tangerine right up front and on top, separate from the rest, and it wakes up the senses. It's a bit intense after every redrip but calms down more with each drag. The rest of the vape is this a candy sweet yet tropically funky thing that shifts. It briefly starts out more tart and pink, less like citrus and more like underripe berry or slightly sour grape, and then rapidly gains a thicker orange tropical and very sweet sweetness that's almost like chewing on a juicy tropical mostly mango bubblegum. I dig this, and this is coming from someone who actually hates CAP Sweet Mango standalone and in other mixes at such a high %, because I think it tastes like overripe, bordering on rotten, fruit. It seems that while tangerine stays separate, the tarter part of Sweet Guava does a great job of cleaning that mess up. If so, it's another concentrate to add to the list of things that can do that (CAP Jelly Candy also seems to help with this, absorbing that overripeness like a sin eater). Cantaloupe might be helping as well, I don't know. I don't taste a distinct cantaloupe here, just a juicer body that I don't think can be accounted for by the other ingredients. It manages to be both thick and juicy and avoid that funny sort of dryness that vaping too much CAP Sweet Mango for too long will give you, that cotton candy type of dryness. I want to mix it again with some coolant added to see if it can help with the way something this sweet gets to be a bit much in the summer heat (it's in the upper 90s here and it's not even June yet! that makes things cloying that wouldn't be in cooler weather). Can't be sure that it won't water down the vape and ruin that thick juicy juicy, but there's only one way to find out.

This is nice! It’s the best thing I’ve had with koolada in it in a really long time. It’s making this very refreshing, and the sort of artificiality of it actually seems to fit well with the profile. I don’t really taste any of these fruits in particular, more just a juicy interesting tropical fruit addition to bubblegum. It tastes like the color pinkish orange made in to a vape. The flavor is a bit odd with the mix of tropical fruitiness and classic pink gum together, but it’s dig-ably odd, not ew yuck odd. Mouthfeel is working for me as it’s thick yet juicy, kind of like gum, with a smooth texture. The one thing I might try, not saying this would definitely be an improvement but it might be worth a try, is adding some CAP Sweet Guava or replacing the JF Honey Peach with CAP Sweet Guava. That one’s always given me a kind of bubblegummy vibe and it might be a good fit for a tropical fruit gum, while the bit of tartness it has could make the whole thing seem more mouthwatering and juicy and less sticky sweet.

This is phenomenally tasty. I wouldn't call it especially authentic to anything, since I've never had a melon gum that also contained that classic pink bubblegum flavor, but hardly matters because that mixed melon/bubblegum flavor is just so great together on top. Watermelon and bubblegum forward with just the bit of honeydew and cantaloupe behind it. It tastes like an excellent harnessing of the base from FLV Cantaloupe where it does that thing where it's almost creamy but in an entirely non-dairy way.

I've never tried Mike's Melons, having tried TFA Mango and TFA Papaya individually, it didn't look like something I wanted to try with those mixed together at such high %s. On one hand, I can't imagine this not being an improvement on the original. However, the papaya is overpowering here. I like TFA Papaya in moderation but it is a bully. I'm not really getting any cantaloupe, I'm not sure what TFA Mango is bringing to the table, and the little hint of strawberry is a tad waxy. Seems like a step in the right direction but more steps are needed - try even less papaya, a brighter strawberry, and something like FLV Cantaloupe and FLV Mango that will stand out against both if you really want a Papaya-Mango-Cantaloupe-Strawberry vape.

This is coming across as terribly soapy to me. However, it should be noted that that's quite likely mostly my own damage and is not the mixers' fault. I've found that most of the time when I try someone else's recipe as written with TFA Honeydew, I get a hint of some soap, but then when I go back and mix it again with half as much Honeydew, the soap is gone. So maybe forget about the soap part, that's just me. But it's also an overpowering amount of honeydew. I'm not really getting any cantaloupe flavor. Just a very forward ripe honeydew with a crisper honeydew behind it, with some milky cream underneath. I must say, that cream is nice. I might like to come back and try this again with both of the honeydews cut in half to see if cantaloupe shines though and tastes good. Even if it doesn't, it should be worth a mix just to enjoy that cream base again and give some more thought to stealing/adapting it to other fruit and cream recipes.

Love this. I'm not sure that "cantaloupe" belongs in the description as I'm not picking it up at all under everything else going on here, at least not as a cantaloupe or even a generic melon, though I'm sure it's making a difference in the thick texture here. I'd knock off a star for missing cantaloupe if it were in the title, but can't be too mad about it only being in the description. I do get a blood orange and mango SORBET though - and that use of CAP Lemon Lime to make a sorbet out of it is working so much better than I imagined. VT Shisha Mango as a single flavor gives me a super ripe mango flavor that's kind of ruined by bit of a piney green peel note that I can see causing problems in a lot of recipes, but not this one. Here that green thing it seems to be covered well by the brighter citrus top notes or sort of folded in to the earthy sweetness that separates a blood orange from an orange, or both, or something like that. Whatever, it works. Tastes like a sorbet made out of a real, well-ripened mango. Nothing seems off about it even using flavors with notorious off notes. No waxiness from the Juicy Orange, for example. Some throat, but less that I'd expected from all the citrus in here. Terrific mix. I wonder how it would do with some coolant to really make it scream sorbet...

This is indeed a chewy mango-melon candy vape with a sweet, soft finish. All the mouthfeels. Tried it on an overnight steep and the top notes were coming across a bit perfumey to me. Like, not an offensive grandma's perfume type of perfume. More like an exotic tropical perfume. If you were wearing this perfume, I'd totally make out with you. It was not so much floral as just over-aggressive, perhaps seeming more so because it was contrasted by that thick but softer-flavored base. After steeping for a week they calm down quite a bit and that base thickens even more, and I'm in love. STEEP THIS FOR A WEEK. It tastes like what I imagine someone would think the picture tastes like if they didn't know what the picture actually was (it's a Mango!Mango! gummy from Trader Joes, FYI).

This is a bit too weird for me. Even knowing looking at the ingredients, and knowing who made it so I was coming into it expecting weird, it's too weird. If all the cantaloupe did was fold into to the mango up top and lend some of it's creaminess to the mango it would probably work better, but I'm getting too much melon flavor coming through and the toasted part of toasted marshmallow is just too odd following behind that. It gives the impression of a toasted cantaloupe which is just... no. No, thank you. Leave the cantaloupe raw please. Add to that the warmth from the KB, and it's just not for me. Points for creativity and yes, if I force myself to mentally separate the top notes (Mango, Cantaloupe) from the bottom (sexy KM/TB) the components are individually delicious, but I don't want to even vape them back to back in different RDAs, much less in the same bottle of juice.

This is magnificent. It tastes like Cookie Butter Ice Cream, but with the ice cream removed and replaced with a rich, warm, buttery vanilla custard. It's so satisfying! The only drawback I could find is that all of the spice notes could be turned down just a little. They're a bit high for cookie butter ice cream, or even just cookie butter without ice cream. A case could be made for authenticity for some kind of cookie butter custard, as a warm custard would certainly enhance the spice notes in there. And when only enjoying it a little at a time, it really doesn't matter, because it is just plain delicious. But those spices kind of build on the palate for me so unless I put it down and vape something else for a bit, they start to overwhelm the custard with nutmeg and ginger a little. Definitely not an all-day vape for me because of that, but absolutely wonderful as a short-term treat just the way it is. Probably shouldn't be ADV-ing all that FA Butter anyway (it tastes too good to be good for you), so maybe it's for the best that the spice notes serve as a reminder to take a break from it now and then.

Wowzers! I'm kind of a novice when it comes to tobaccos and although I've loved Black for Pipe for some time, this is my first encounter with both Absolute Cuban Cigar and DNB. I had no idea what to expect. I was worried that it might even taste like licking an ashtray. It does not. It's rich and satisfying and just right. It's everything that CBV's description and Hash's, LimeDrive's, and Ebc88's reviews say it is. There's really nothing I can add that those four haven't already said. I need to have this mixed up at all times, at higher nic level than I usually vape, just in case I decide to go out drinking. I can't even imagine a better vape for that. Fucking Bravo!

It’s juicy and refreshing and I really appreciate the way it combines both a sweet melon flavor and a creamy dairy milk, like a honeydew milk smoothie. Mixing melons and milk can be dangerous, that's a combination that can go south real easy in my experience, but it works well here. At the suggested steep time, I'm getting plenty of honeydew flavor and a milky creaminess coming in underneath, which the slightest hint of vanilla. Not tasting any cantaloupe or strawberry but I'm sure they're contributing to the body and sweetness.

Very nice! Wild Melon is full-flavored without any off notes, a mostly honeydew mix of delicious melons. FLV Cream is the one cream I wouldn't hesitate to mix with melons because it has that creamy feel without really tasting of dairy or vanilla. Fluffed up a bit and sweetened with Cotton Candy it's even better. Cactus 0.25% doesn't always work to just juice things up without making its presence known but it does here. Altogether, a great, satisfying simple recipe. Thanks for this! I waited five days to try it and can imagine it getting even better if I'd been a little more patient and was wanting more out of the bit of cream, but this is already terrific just the way it is.

Nice, not a bad or offensive recipe by any means, but tastes like it’s missing something. Like it’s all soft, slightly syrupy sweet base flavors that play well together, without something on top to really hook me in to wanting to vape more of it. It’s like an excellent part of a recipe that’s not quite finished. An easy route to something that tastes more complete would probably be something like adding just a little FA Cucumber, with that bit of green rind for more of a vegetal bite, or going the more melonious route and adding some FLV Wild Melon or something like that. And then there’s the possibility of going the more creative route, more creative than I am, and going for something completely different and contrasting against this complementary mix.

I mixed it up as written without any of the suggested changes despite knowing that I don’t really care for the taste of menthol. Who knows, maybe this would be the recipe that would change my mind about menthol? It didn’t, but I can’t hold that against it. It’s sweet, juicy, delicious (aside from the menthol, lol). Candied and artificial more than natural honeydew vape, but that's ok, not everything has to be authentic. Should be a great, refreshing summer vape for menthol lovers, might work just as well without it for people like me, and really makes the case for TFA Honeydew II as a solid ingredient.

So that might not be spot on Mountain Dew, but it could certainly pass for a very solid representation of some unnamed store brand mountain dew type drink and that ought to be good enough for all but the pickiest dewy-eyed vapers. It dew taste like Mountain Dew. It’s sweet and wet and chilled and if you squint with your tasters real hard, you can almost get some fizz out of it. I had some concerns about harshness based on some of the ingredients here but the way they’re used here keeps that from being an issue for me. Sodas can be difficult, in my experience. I can imagine a lot of work went into this recipe and it feels like it paid off. I dew wonder whether a better dew could possibly be created using LB Dew Mountain instead of TFA Citrus Punch as the heart of it and fixing the shortcomings with that flavor with some of the same or similar flavors as what’s been used here. But that’s just an idea, I haven’t tasted a perfected Mountain Dew vape made that way yet. I’ve tasted this, and it tastes like five stars, at least until someone proves they can top it.

I kind of want to give this only 4 stars because I'm not picking up any of the advertised coconut flavor. But I can't, because it's that good! Instead of coconut, I get something that wasn't in the description, honey. I'm not mad about that. How can I be? It's too damn delicious and satisfying to be mad. I think it really drives home the tea thing; this is like drinking honey-sweetened hibiscus tea out of one side of my mouth with an unlit nutty cigarillo hanging out of the other. I had some real doubts about how that syrupy CAP Hibiscus would work with a tobacco. I would have advised against trying it. I would have been wrong. Vaping this makes me feel like I need a Hawaiian shirt and some criminal underlings to boss around. This tastes like a boss, and not just any boss, a tea-drinking island crime boss.

I was excited about this one because Honey + Fig + Bacco sounds terrific to me. I tried it without looking at the recipe first and thought, well, would be great, if it weren't for that hint of licorice. Someone who likes that black licorice flavor might be a fan, as I can't find any other reason not to like it, but that licorice is not for me. When I went back to look at the recipe, I expected to find some INW tobacco that I've never tried before, because that seems like a likely source of a licorice off note to me. Nope, VT Fig. It does taste like fig, not just black licorice, but enough black licorice for me to nope out. The licorice wasn't pushed far enough out of the mix, for me. I don't think I'll be using VT Fig anytime soon. I don't really get real honey but it does have a honey-like sweetness. It looks like a lot of different FLV tobaccos, which can result in a muddled and kind of soapy taste, but they work here. The addition of Shade here really seems to be working especially well. More tobacco recipes should make use of that, I think. Overall I think this has the makings of a great recipe, if only VT Fig didn't taste like licorice. I think this would be perfect for me with the VT Fig replaced with CAP Fig. As best I can tell from only trying VT Fig in this mix, CAP's version is the most comparable. FLV would be too dark and musty for this and FA too bright and juicy.

Definitely enjoyed this one. I got some kind of soft, moist bakery that could be a sponge cake underneath an elderflower-berry something. The cream or custard seems to be part of the sponge cake rather than part of the elderflower-berry and the strawberry tastes like more of a generic red berry thing rather than a clear strawberry. Interesting and delicious. I have some past experience with elderflower and I never would have guessed it could work in a bakery based on those experiences. And yet, here it does. It tastes like a super fancy dessert made with St. Germain-laced mixed red berry coulis. I love this. I wouldn't change this recipe at all.

Not the baked brie with cranberry sauce that I actually suggested, but a great vape, especially for something a bit savory. I got a bit of something acrid from it as a S&V and the Brie was intensely cheesy. Then I let it steep for a month. Now the cranberry really tastes sweet and saucy, without that kind of bitter edge. It also cuts into that cheese and prevents it from being offensive, without tamping it down too much. The end result is a satisfying vape and proof that FLV Brie can be used higher than I would have thought without being offensive, as long as it has a smart paring. My only beef is that while it might still be doing something important to the cranberry sauce, that little bit of orange is completely gone as a discrete flavor and it seems like a little twist of orange that I could actually taste would be an enjoyable accent here that would kick this up another notch.

This tastes like that cereal bar picture, for sure. It’s a also great reminder of how good FE Sweet Rice is. That base does make an excellent Honey Nut Cheerios type. I don’t think VT Honeycomb actually tastes like raw honey at all as the notes say it does, but in the mix with the WF Almond Cookie, it really does taste quite a bit like the baked-in honey of honey nut Cheerios. Nice sort of nondescript fruitiness makes it interesting. I get some pretty solidly unpleasant throat hit from this much FLV Apple Cranberry standalone, but the sweet stuff here seems to be calming it down completely at a six-day steep, so it’s perfectly painless. FLV Wheat without a lot of help is gross, and it’s difficult to work with, so I can’t recommend everyone just rush off to buy it. But if you already have it, definitely mix this up. Or pick it up if you’re obsessed with vaping Cheerios, or you just want to marvel at the level of skill brought to bear on this recipe.

Refreshing peach-orange-cranberry mix and an outstanding example of how a little FLV Cranberry can go a long way. TFA Nectarine just makes such a great peach nectar flavor in a beverage profile like this and all three work together beautifully, especially the brighter Nectarine with the more syrupy blood orange. The flavor gently shifts from more peachy to an orange juice body to more of that deeper cranberry flavor, so it doesn’t have clear layers of each, but also isn’t everything all mushed together. At the same time that they take turns being in the forefront, none were ever really completely absent, and the finish seems fuller and sweeter than any one of these flavors are on their own, but they they taste like natural or lightly sweetened natural juice rather than candied or artificial, and even has a wet beverage feel. Together it makes for a satisfying summer fruit vape that’s much more interesting than a simple combination of three flavors might imply. I think it might be harsh for some people, I’m not sure: I thought I maybe felt a little scratch in the throat at first, but rather than building and getting worse the way harshness often does, I got used to or whatever was causing it vaped off first, or it was all in my head, who knows. I’m definitely going to slip some WS-23 in here and see if it can be even more refreshing without upsetting what tastes like a perfectly selected balance of flavors.

This tastes like as big a mess as the title after steeping for six days. It's not harsh but it is sharp and boozy, coming across less like a cinnamon-spiced cranberry sauce and more like chopped raw cranberries soaked in cheap spiced rum with some undissolved sugar at the bottom of the glass, garnished with a cinnamon stick. Instead of cinnamon-sugar on top, cinnamon and sugar are on opposite ends of a vape that starts with cinnamon and ends with sweet. What's in the middle tastes tart and fruity like cranberry, but also a bit bitter and oddly warm. It is both camphorous and acetous at the same time, camphorous without the accompanying coolness. I'd say it almost goes balsamic if it weren't so brown sugary sweet. There's also an intermittent woody note that's just strange. However, it's oddly far from unvapable for me, in part because of the absence of harshness and in part because it's so weird I kind of want to keep vaping it to figure it out. Also worth noting that I appreciate the message here, and that quite a bit of my displeasure might be attributed to trying it in the middle of July and NOT AS INTENDED "for vaping right after your Thanksgiving feast." As noted by @inrespekkt , a longer steep might make it more enjoyable. But mostly I think this is the wrong solo cranberry for the job, and way too much FA Pom.

Delicious! These flavors compliment each other so well, it’s like they were meant to be together. It is indeed rich, warm, deep, and sweet, it’s also mostly satisfying, but something seems to be missing, as others have noted. It seems a bit under-flavored, and lacking, for lack of a better term, an identity. But rather than doing any of the things others have suggested, or taking the creator’s advice and adding “a bit of butterscotch, torrone, brown sugar, or some sort of nut flavor,” I think the best thing do with this tasty combination of flavors is crank that VCV1 up to 6 to 8%, steep it for at least 2 weeks, maybe 4, and give it an identity as a custard recipe. It might be best custard recipe ever, who knows.

This seems like great example of what can be done with JF RY4 Double that makes it superior-tasting, if not more versatile, than its TFA counterpart . Full-flavored and dark vanilla-forward, some rich caramel, and a thick, satisfying cream, with a solid hit of sharper toasty tobacco notes tightening up the finish. There’s a lot going on in this deceptively simple recipe, because all to JF RY4 Dub and FLV Milk & Honey complexities come though.

I wasn't so sure about Honeysuckle in a tobacco recipe but this is as beautiful as it is brave and unique. Probably wouldn't have been quite so skeptical if I'd given some thought to the strong vanilla in here -that seems to be what holds it all together. That Honeysuckle-Shisha Vanilla combo on top is so good and backing it up with a little Cream and Vanilla for Pipe seems genius. The intricate, deep, and a little toasty but not-too-dark pipe tobacco fits with that combo so harmoniously that nothing seems remotely out of place. It finishes smooth and creamy, not dry, but not soggy either. Like a real pipe tobacco creaminess. Just wonderfully balanced all the way around. Bottom line, it tastes like "Longing Gets Sensuously Felt Up In Super Fancy Tobacco Store," so obviously I'm totally in love with this mix, despite (or maybe because of) the bittersweet memories it conjures. Disclaimer: I accidentally let it steep for like two months, so if you try it earlier, YMMV. But, HOT DAMN that is some good suckle-bacco!

For a simple recipe with just three ingredients and 6% total flavor, this thing is awesome. It’s rich and satisfying and really demonstrates what both Creme Brulee and Custard by INW are and what they do. I wonder whether a darker vanilla might work even better than Shisha V here because it is a little on the bright side, but without trying it out I have no way of knowing. A vanilla that rides too high might interfere with those lovely caramelized sugar crust top notes. It might get a little boring as an ADV but if you switch flavors frequently enough it isn’t, and it tastes like it would welcome all kinds of additional ingredients that might make it more interesting: In other words, it tastes like the perfect base for a creme brulee recipe to accent however you please. Mix it up as written first and then see what ideas it gives you. I’m thinking almond would excellent. I’ve looked at culinary recipes for almond, almond-vanilla bean, orange-almond, and amaretto creme brulees and they all look like “I want to vape that.” Could be as simple as adding 1.5 to 2% FA Almond to this. Or 1% INW Marzipan for that amaretto-type creme brulee and keeping with the all-INW theme here. Anyway, beautiful simple recipe just the way it is. Thanks, TooTall!

Super smooth and creamy delicious vanilla custard with a lovely dry sugary caramel and cinnamon top note. It tastes wonderful; my only beef with it, if you even want to tall it beef, is prominence of the cinnamon with no cinnamon in the name or description. My best guess is that the cinnamon is supposed to give the vanilla bean a bit more of spicy kick, but it’s coming through pretty clearly as a cinnamon + vanilla rather than just spicy vanilla bean. If that’s what’s supposed to happen, it needs less cinnamon. But putting cinnamon in the name or at least description would work just as well because it’s already super tasty. The custard is a little loose and creamy and not as much of a thick and eggy custard, but it’s not always a bad thing, it keeps it from getting too rich to vape all day.

This tastes very close to what I would imagine a custard baked inside of a hollowed out pineapple would taste like, if you got a bite close to the edge where the pineapple meets the custard, used brown instead of white sugar, and didn’t torch the sugar long enough to really get that crunchy crust on it. So it doesn’t really taste exactly like the picture. But it’s delicious, and isn’t that what really matters? Also, I’ve tried several recipes that were modeled after pineapple upside down cake and I think this gets closer to nailing that caramelized pineapple better than any of them. If you could add a solid yellow cake flavor to this and maybe reduce the custard-ness just a bit, I think it would be really easy to get from here to the best pineapple upside down cake vape ever.

I surprised to be getting any banana out of this, but even at just 1%, it comes through. This really does taste like the picture, with a bit of torched banana on top of a sugar crusted creme brulee. What the picture doesn’t show you is that it has caramel throughout - the thick, rich eggy custard underneath is thoroughly infused with it all the way to the finish. And there’s nothing wrong with that, making a creme brulee out of a caramel custard. But it’s a little dry. This recipe might be improved with a very light touch of sweetener to help with the drier finish, but certainly not more than about 0.25% CAP SS.

This is very nutty literally and figuratively. It’s a nearly Grack-Juice level of weird-but-good. It’s very sweet but also dirty and boozy, smooth but stout. Full-bodied with a thick creamy feel but no of the usual creamy flavors’ tastes. The creator says it defies the needs for fruits, but countering the toasty nuttiness and boozy brown sugary sweetness I get just a touch of fruity nuance with the lemon from torrone and interacting with the hint musty grape from brandy. What it absolutely does defy for me is the need for a recipe to be a facsimile of some kind of food or drink. It’s a masterpiece of “weird” or abstract mixing. Definitely mix this up for something out of the ordinary that’s as warm and comforting as a big manly bear hug.

Something terrible has happened to me. I’ve become a pepper taster overnight. Or maybe not overnight, but at some point since the last time I had some TFA VBIC, which couldn’t have been that long ago. As best I can tell when I try my best to ignore the pepper and not hold it against the recipe, there seems to be a terrific thick, sweet ice cream base here. I don’t taste much chocolate, certainly not enough for chocolate almond ice cream. That is probably not a bad thing because what chocolate is there tastes like tootsie roll and I really don’t want more of that. However, the snap of clear but complex and sweet almond on the end is just absolutely perfect for this. I’d to love to see this one redesigned with a pepper-free ice cream and a more authentic and stronger chocolate, but keeping that same perfect almond finish.

I didn't think this could really taste this much like a nice citrusy IPA without something at least a little overtly fermented but somehow the bit of funk in the Guanabana and Pink Guava gets the job done beautifully. Not only is it refreshing and all-day delicious, I feel like a grown up vaping it. Cheers!

This recipe has all of my favorite things in it so of course I had to try it and of course I was going to love it. What I didn't expect was to be able to taste all the notes rather than just a beautiful mess of hopped up tropical yum. Mango, hops, pineapple, a touch of coconut, and a silky smooth smoothie base. Superb!

CAP NY Cheesecake fills out the "Competition Custard" and FA Madagascar hits the right vanilla note here. Best tasting recipe ever? Nah, but pretty awesome to have a shake-and-vapeable vanilla custard. The list of "recipes inspired by this one" should be a lot longer than the one listed at this point. My head is swimming with ideas for other S&V custards using this as a base and if you give this a try, yours probably will be, too. This recipe feels like more than just a yummy and neat trick, it feels IMPORTANT.

What is this mind-boggling wizardry!?! A delicious, satisfying cola recipe that mimics the experience of drinking cola much better than any of the individual cola flavorings I've tried. And better than any of the cola recipes I've tried that were aimed at correcting the deficiencies of those flavors. All without using any cola flavors. It's a masterpiece from the bubbles to the syrupy sweet base, with a just-right acidic bite and balanced cooling. It tastes like someone is showing off either an abundance of talent, a ridiculous amount of work, incredible luck, or some combination of those. I might have to dump my FA Cola and LB Cola Freeze and use a one-shot of 007 as my go-to cola flavor. If such a one-shot were for sale, I'd pay good money for it, but here it is being given away for free. We are not worthy.

Super tasty corn-based berry cereal with milk? You betcha. Easily the best I’ve tried, 5-stars. I’ll stop a bit shy of calling it “spot-on” as some of the other reviewers have done, as it’s just a hair too dark and toasty for absolutely perfect Cap’n Crunch. But, and this is a big but, all of the berry cereal single flavors are absolute trash compared to this, and if you’re looking for Cap’n Crunch Berries this it might be as good as it gets.

Deeelicious! I had some doubt about FLV Sweet Coconut being used this way (FLV Coconut is the buttery one, and was the key to other tasty pudding recipes I’ve tried) but it really works. Together with the INW Custard, it makes for a smooth, sweet creamy pudding that’s thick and full without being as heavy as a custard. It's way more all-day vape-able than your average custard. The well-rounded vanilla depth is nice, too, but I think what's really kept me coming back is the way Golden Syrup gives it a natural, authentic sweetness that's perfect for a pudding.

This is magnificent! There are three recipes that I think put my favorite season in a bottle - Deer Lodge by ConcreteRiver, Pheasant Ridge by Fear, and now this. It is like inhaling a painting called "Autumn." It tastes like celebrating the harvest. It's raking leaves while drinking cider and watching football. The spice-like edge on the sweet Virginia combine with the bit of cinnamon in Apple Filling to make it warm and a perfect pairing for being outdoors in the fall crispness or just being reminded of it anytime.

Hot damn this is great stuff, I wish I’d tried this manly mix sooner. I mixed a Kentucky Blend-based bourbon tobacco [Two Kentuckies] because I loved that pairing and only used a touch of Red Burley because I didn’t want Red Burley’s nuttiness to get in way of it. Later I made a bourbon-PB blend [Retaliatory Tariffs] because I liked the bourbon and PB played together. This is almost like putting those to recipes together, and it’s better than either of them. I get a lot of nuttiness from the Red Burley but it teams up so well with the splash of bourbon on top. Love this bold, full tobacco flavor and the Lovage makes it moist and pleasant to vape without making it soggy and gross.

FLV Root Beer is awesome, but there's a weak spot between those superbly kickin’ top notes and the kinda foamy finish that helps make it the only root beer flavor I've tried that reminds me more of real root beer and less of those gnarly little barrel candies. A sweet, syrupy soda flavor would have been my first choice to fill that hole, as the vanilla already seemed well-balanced in the flavor itself to me. But it appears like that might be a mistake, as this uses Holy Vanilla to fill it out instead of some soda or a syrupier root beer flavor, and Holy Hell is it fantastic! I've never had a Fitz's Root Beer, but this is so good it’s got me seriously eyeballing that $29 twelve-pack on Amazon. That little touch of super sweet doesn't hurt at all, either. Mr. B says you can bump it up but I wouldn't. At 0.25% it really sells that soda sweet without calling any attention to itself at all. Just my $0.02 but I'm afraid any more might be obtrusive and turn it into diet vanilla root beer. And we wouldn't want that.

It's incredibly hard for me to give this only four stars. That's because it's fucking delicious and absolutely both shake-and-vapeable and all-day-vapable. Do yourself a huge favor and mix it up. But, I was promised a root beer float. Granted, it is much better than something like single-flavor FW Root Beer Float, but it tastes more like a root beer float made out of vanilla whipped cream than thick, rich vanilla ice cream. Or maybe a root beer float with a seriously skimpy ice cream to root beer ratio. FLV Root Beer is magical stuff but it has a small gap between those wonderful top notes and the delightfully foamy finish. Here, the vanilla bean plays well with those spicy top notes and the FW VBIC and CAP Vanilla Whipped Cream fill that gap very well without messing up the root beer at all. I just want a little bit more t h i c c ness in an ice cream float, that's all. Even after steeping for almost a week to see if the creams would come out a bit, I'm still not quite getting that.

This is not bad, for an all-LB recipe, not bad at all. The root beer is getting a bit overwhelmed by cream for me though, and missing some of that "bite" that you want from a root beer float. Although it finishes smooth and creamy, the top notes are also running a little dry for something that's partially liquid. Personally I think this could be even better without the LB Cream that probably isn't accomplishing anything that the Vanilla Ice Cream can't do by itself. And the LB Sweetener I think is just ethyl maltol, could be contributing to the drier top notes, and the whole recipe might be improved with replacing that with some sucralose sweetener or just leaving it out. But still, not a bad vape at all as-is.

FLV Root Beer is inspiring, isn't it? And chocolate ice cream root beer float! What an awesome idea! Unfortunately, I can't really review this recipe, because I didn't really mix this recipe. Ever since I started tasting black pepper in TFA VBIC, I've been playing around with subs. It seems like 8:6 LB:TFA ratio has been working pretty well, so instead of 3.5% TFA, I used 4.7% LB Vanilla Ice Cream and otherwise followed the recipe. I might have messed it up a little doing that, upset the balance a bit as is very often the case with making substitutions. If I get around to mixing it again, I'll try lowering the LB down, maybe to 4%, because that wonderful Root Beer flavor isn't as forceful as I'd like it to be and I'm afraid I drowned it a bit in vanilla. But still, even with probably too much VIC, I'm getting a terrific vape. 5 stars for the lovely vape and because I can't take one away for something that's very likely my own fault. Enough root beer is still there to get that makes an outstanding pairing with chocolate ice cream even if it isn't the balance of the two I'd hoped for. The chocolate is the coolest thing here. The root beer seems to be doing some magic. I'm not a big fan of the way HS Chocolate Cream tastes on it's own. It's got a yucky sourness to it like chocolate yogurt. But I'm not getting any yucky sourness here. I love HS Australian Chocolate, but it's too dark, too nutty, and too dry. I'm getting just the slightest hair of nuttiness and zero dryness from this one, and it's not too dark for the profile. Root Beer magic! Definitely mix this up if the profile interests you and you don't get pepper from TFA VBIC. If you are a pepper taster, try LB VIC but don't use as much as I did, or maybe bump the FLV Root Beer up a notch. Or, start from scratch making your own chocolate ice cream root beer float and don't forget to thank Dr. Doobie for the inspiration!

I've never had ginger beer this interesting and complex, but I want to. It tastes like half delicious ginger ale half deeply authentic root beer, with a little twist of lime. FLV Root Beer already has that foamy finish that mimics the frothy head on a frosty mug. Combined with that bite from the ginger and citrus, this does a carbonated beverage just as good, if not better, than anything I've tried in a vape. Awesome stuff!

It sounds bizarre but you can find recipes online for root beer and banana smoothies and root beer floats with banana ice cream, so it's a thing. A weird thing, but a thing. And this does that thing as well as it could be done, as best I can tell. There's some separation here, with both the stellar root beer top notes and as bold a creamy banana finish as you could hope for without going candy. Where they meet in the middle, there's a brief moment when it's almost chocolately, somehow, , but it's tasty so I can't find anything to complain about. Great flavor and lots of it even if it is an odd combo.

An aptly named but oddly very tasty recipe. I'm going frosted donut dunked in root beer. I get the root beer up front as if it's dripping off, zeppola right in the middle, and a lingering frosting finish. It's interesting, and believe it or not, not in a bad way. I'd even call it hard to put down. Who even thinks of something like this? If I waste a donut dunking it in root beer because of this stuff, just to see if it works as well in food as it does in a vape, I'm going to be pissed.

These one is FIRE. I don’t know that it’s all that realistic because FA Gin is pretty much just juniper flavor and this is FA Gin forward and missing that real boozy liquor taste and botanicals besides just juniper. But that berry-citrus-cooling combined with that juniper is just too good to put down. The mixed berry gives it a nice sweet, almost syrupy base for those top notes to play on but it doesn’t stand out and taste like harvest berry calling attention to itself. And then the clean, cool finish. Just lovely. I think the depth of the Sweet Guava is really making this work. Makes me want to see what else could be done with Gin and Sweet Guava.

EDIT: I WROTE THIS WHEN THE RECIPE HAD 0.5% FLV COCONUT. It's since been update to call for 0.25%. I'll have to try it again with the coconut cut in half. In the meantime, here's the previous review: Why am I giving my friend's absolutely, unequivocally delicious chocolate-frosted chocolate cake recipe only four stars? One word: Coconut. I love coconut, so I'm not really complaining. I'll happily vape up every last drop of this deliciousness. But for those coconut haters out there, beware. I'm getting enough of it here to be a little less than halfway between a plain chocolate cake and German chocolate cake. Picture a two-tier chocolate-frosted chocolate cake otherwise prepared perfectly, yet for some reason the inside, where a layer of chocolate frosting should separate the two cakes, has inexplicably been replaced with that German chocolate coconut icing goop stuff. Sadly, I don't know how to "fix" this in a way that will still be as enjoyable as this. I'm guessing that any reduction in the FLV Coconut here is going to proportionally reduce the luxurious richness and depth here. Fine by me because I don't think it's broken and in need of fixing, as I'd love a chocolate cake made that way, but a sad day for coconut haters.

This is stellar. The only way I could imagine anyone being let down by it is if you're expecting a lot of oatmeal cookie. It's there, but it definitely takes a backseat to smooth, thick, and rich peanut butter creme. I tried it as a shake and vape and it was promising, but even at 1% that raw greasy vanilla of unsteeped CAP Vanilla Custard was sticking out like a sore thumb. Give it a few days and it dies down. Give it two weeks and it's even better; the oatmeal cookie comes out more and picks up a bit of bakery texture that was missing before, and pairs so well with peanut butter and cream flavors eventually melt together into something like a giant gooey spoonful of peanut butter cream filling. A lot of peanut butter recipes have problems with fading but this one is still strong three weeks out and hard to put down.

Perfect vanilla ice cream. Add your prefered slight touch of sweetener and go if you just want to vape vanilla ice cream. Or use it as an ingredient. It's practically dangerous for such a terrific vanilla ice cream base to be shake and vapeable like this. How am I supposed to not mix everything with a vanilla ice cream base now?

So, I can't say how this will do if or when it loses that zesty bite from the FA Lemon Sicily fading, but as a shake and vape - it is a beautiful lemonade vape. Zero harshness, zero floor cleaner. It tastes like a Country Time lemonade - fake lemonade made from powder mix - but with a couple of real lemon slices floating in it to make it fancy. My favorite thing about it is the way that lemony goodness lingers in my senses, kinda like having lemonade moustache.

This is delicious juice, free of the scary cherry off notes, that hits the spot for something bright and refreshing. I'm going to go ahead and give it all five stars because it's a cherry lemonade that tastes amazing, though I have a little bit of beef with description. WIth the juice itself, zero beef whatsoever. But the relatively high amount of INW Dragon Fruit here that "takes it in a unique direction" seems to take it outside the realm of a beverage. That Pitaya has a lot of base body to it that comes across thicker and chewer than something that could come up through a straw. The end result here is like eating a frozen white gummy bear and frozen cherry lemonade gummy bear at the same time. Sounds strange. IS strange. But I'm digging the hell out of it.

Nearly spot-on for one of those delightful lychee gummies. The only area where it falls a hair short for me is that tastes like it almost but doesn't quite escape TFA Lychee's floral tone's tendency to run a bit perfumy. Floral is an essential and wonderful part of lychee but it shouldn't cross the line into perfume. This only mostly avoids that for me., and this profile deserves 100% perfection. I'd love to see it crafted out of a more candy-like lychee flavor, such as FE's. Or barring that, maybe lowering the cactus would clean it up... or maybe it's the cactus doing the cleaning, I don't know. There's some magic going on here for this to be as good as it is despite TFA Lychee's issues.

Pleasant little simple recipe, but soft, not a ton of flavor. The lemon especially seems a bit watered down, both by the lower than average concentration of a fairly weak flavor, and by the cactus, which pokes out a bit without a more bitey lemon to overpower it. I would add some other lemon to this, like FE Lemon, VT Sour Lemon, or even just some FA Lemon Sicily, and maybe push the Boysenberry up to 3% as well.

So this just swiped the lemons from the legendary Best Damn Pink Lemonade... and created a new and even better (!) recipe by replacing TFA Strawberry Ripe and TFA Sweet Raspberry with FLV Boysenberry. For the most part, the Boysenberry combines with the lemon, with little separation between the two. Really makes the case for how well this Boysenberry tastes with lemons. There might be some room for improvement with other lemons or backing up the berry. But for three common (or should be common) flavors in a quick little perfectly shake-and-vapable recipe? This is amazing.

FLV Boysenberry, melon, and lemon go so well together. Personally, I would like the lemon to be a little bit more forward and make a boysenberry lemonade rather than just a bit of lemon behind this melon-forward recipe, but all of these things taste like they belong together. I love Wild Melon but it sometimes gets a teensy bit soapy on me at 2% and higher, depending on what it’s mixed with, and it does here, but I’m not holding it against this recipe because because there are a lot of people who don’t have that issue. I’d like to mix it again with half a percent of the Wild Melon replaced with half of a percent of a more assertive lemon.

Super refreshing, terrific recipe. Tastes like a hot day ADV. The boysenberry and lemons blend together into a nice boysenberry sweet and tart lemonade right up front and there’s a sweet and juicy watermelon lemonade finish, with a little mixed melon filling out the middle.

This is aptly named, the way the boysenberry interacts with the strawberry really is interesting and without having mixed it up myself I wouldn’t have known what was going on there. It’s still a strawberry, but it’s a mysteriously interesting strawberry, not quite a wild strawberry but a strawberry with a wild side. A lady in the streets freak in the sheets kind of strawberry. I’m not a huge fan of this ice cream base, though, as it comes across a little cheesy/overchurned. On the upside though, I got a couple of comments about how nice of a room note this one has.
User: ID10-T Score: 5 Entered: 8 months ago
I gave this a try in the course of sampling a bunch of recipes that incorporate boysenberry flavors in different ways. This one just uses a touch of VT Boysenberry to sharpen some blueberry against a rich cream base that might otherwise overwhelm it. That works, and this stuff is delicious. It mostly tastes like someone “harvested” the blueberries out of dozens and dozens of blueberry muffins blended those up into luxurious rich vanilla ice cream. I have a few words of advice regarding this recipe. One, mix it up, people. I doubt you’ll regret it.. Two, turn your temperature control or wattage down a little more than you normally have it. This stuff sings under less heat. If you throw too much power at it, it keeps that creamy finish, but the blueberry on top gets much sharper, almost to the point of harshness. Also, it some of that deep cooked berry sweetness gives way to more of an artificial, candied sweetness. Three, where’s the muffin? I’m not getting any of the promised cake notes. Probably more sensitive taster would, but they aren’t showing up for me (one of the reasons for monkeying around with the settings). Ordinarily I might dock a star when reviewing a recipe for not delivering 100% as promised, but you see here I did not. That’s because it’s that damn yummy. But if you really have your heart set on tasting some muffin in there, rather than just the tons of blueberries harvested from muffins, maybe add a touch of that FLV Lembas Bread, or if you want bakery but want it more in line with cake than muffin, a bit of one of any number of the tasty WF cake flavors might do the trick.

I don’t know that it screams boysenberry in particular, but it is a mostly pleasant dark berry crumble. However, the berry is just a bit buried under all that crumble, and rather than a bunch of sweet gooey berry, I’m getting a ton of dry-yet-buttery INW Biscuit. I wouldn’t mind trying this again, but I’d probably adjust it a bit, maybe cut the Biscuit in half and push the Boysenberry up to 3%.

Outstanding recipe! That FW Wild Berry Cobbler is great on its own but PUR Boysenberry Preserves leveling up the cooked berry and CAP Sugar Cookie reinforcing it’s otherwise light crust note, make it even better. These three together perfectly nail the crust and cooked dark berries that taste like a combination of blackberries, strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries. I don’t know if whether it’s more of a light ice cream or a heavy whipped cream filling it out with rich creamy vanilla on top, it’s not an extra-rich thick ice cream, but it’s delicious without distracting from cobbler itself.

A refreshing berry and grape mix? I was interested in trying this to see if someone had figured out away to make that otherwise kinda gross TFA Berry Mix work really well. This icy mix doesn’t do it. It delivers the refreshment, berry, and grape that was promised and is a heck of a lot better than Berry Mix by itself, but doesn’t quite mitigate that off note in Berry Mix that reminds me of cold sore medicine. This tastes like it would be great, or at least better, with literally any other mixed berry in place of that TFA stuff - WF Bumbleberry, FA/JF/VT “Forest” berries, FLV Berry Blend. Even CAP Harvest Berry would probably be an big improvement.

This is awesome! Absolutely slays with morning and after dinner coffee. What I'm getting isn't 100% perfect, but I'm still leaving five stars for the following reasons: It tastes amazing, this is a difficult as hell profile, and I'm not sure it's possible to get any closer to tiramisu in a vape. Imperfections include a little too much chocolate, and a very slight coconutty note that's out of place. If you don't like cocoa, you shouldn't be trying to vape tiramisu anyway, and I happen to enjoy coconut enough that the little touch of it here doesn't bother me at all. The soaked ladyfingers and cream are perfection. I usually have them soaked in coffee liqueur rather than the kind with espresso with a touch of amaretto or spiced rum, but those varieties are wonderful too and for this one you could just say you went a bit tropical and used espresso with a spoonful of coconut rum. Hmmm.... I feel inspired to make actual tiramisu that way and see how it turns out!

A delightfully confusing recipe. It's muddled in the best possible way, proving like Grack Juice, Fiestas and Fiascos, Coop's Kiwi Bourbon and a few other notable works of abstract recipe art that something doesn't have to represent a real thing to be tasty as hell. The closest thing I can compare it to... Have you ever bought frozen sliced peaches? You know you don't have to thaw them out, right? You can eat them right out of the freezer for a wonderful summer treat. Now imagine those peaches are blue. Not blueberry + peach, but an alternate universe where some peaches happen to be naturally blue and taste much different, and most agree better, than their yellow brethren. This juice is a trip into that fantasy world and it's a place I want to revisit.

So so so sweet wow.

I get everything promised in the description, which is a lot! Caramel, toffee, butterscotch, peanuts, popcorn, and ice cream. Even a little whipped cream in the finish. Yes, it really delivers all of that without being too muddled up. The only thing I have by way of criticism is that it’s a little sharp on top. I gave it six days. I see Pippa’s review with the suggestion to let it steep quite a bit longer and that sounds right to me, so I’m going to set it aside for a couple more weeks and come back to it. I bet that sharp edge will sanded down and the ice cream will come out even more, and I’m looking forward to that.

If you allow that the type of ice cream involved here is that sort of fluffy, cheap kids’ party ice cream and not a richer, creamier, custardy type of ice cream, this recipe does what it says it’s going to do, which is more than can be said for lots of recipes. I really like the way you get the caramel popcorn flavor right away and it comes back in the finish, with all of that ice cream in the middle, making it effectively deserve to have “sandwich” in the name. I wonder if it would work as well with a thicker, richer ice cream, but if it wouldn’t this is tasty the way it is.

I love this idea, but the execution seems to have quite a bit of improvement. The strawberry could be a little less ripe and a little more candied - like the artificial strawberry I would expect from that strawberry yogurt coating, and the popcorn flavor is there but a little buried under the strawberry yogurt. The texture is lacking. Besides changing the strawberry, I’d try backing up the popcorn with a little CAP Cereal 27 or something like that to crunch it up a bit.

I don’t get pudding out of this. Probably because I don’t really get pudding out of VT Pudding Base, unless maybe it’s kind of an odd but delicious take on bread pudding, in which case I can sort of see it. But I love that combination of sweet fake and roasty real pistachio, and whatever the hell Pudding Base is, it certainly pairs up well with that pair of pistachios. It makes something almost like a crazy chewy pistachio cookie that’s more pistachio than chewy cookie. Whatever it is, it’s yummy without skimping on the nutty goodness. Very full-flavored simple mix with a dry roast top and sweet, thick, smooth finish, with some delightful little buttery bakery almost hidden in the background.

As another person who loves both Charlie Noble’s Pistachio RY4 and Fear’s Cardinal, I loved the idea of this mix, combining the two. This does that, and therefore is awesome. It’s a great mix, just the way it is, with Red Burley really turning that Holy Grail into a legit, robust tobacco and the pairing of the pistachio with the caramel is divine. Red Burley also pairs well with the nuttiness here, so it all works together just the way I imagined it would when I saw this recipe. The only thing I can say in terms of criticism or room for possible improvement, is that I’m missing some of sweetness and boldness that I get from both Pistachio RY4 and from Cardinal. If desired, I think it could be brought into this with just a little fine tuning. Try pushing both the Holy Holy Grail and the TFA Pistachio harder and more sweetness should come out without messing up the balance. I would turn the Holy Holy Grail up to 6, 7, maybe even 8% and the TFA Pistachio up to 3 or 4% or maybe even higher. And ditch the WF Pistachio Cream entirely, it seems to be taking away more than it’s adding here. No other changes. If that got a little rough, as too much TFA Pistachio can do, maybe replacing the Vanilla Bourbon for 1 or 2% TFA Vanilla Swirl would smooth it back down.

I’ve said before that Jbird has never failed to impress and delight, but this is an exception. It’s worth noting that it was made way back in July 2016 and we’ve all grown and improved quite a bit since then. This recipe delivers a pistachio with cream, but not quite a pistachio ice cream. It’s just not thick and creamy and sweet enough for ice cream, there’s a separation between the nutty pistachio and the cream, and the bakeries used for the cone flavor (particularly the Biscuit, I think), ramp up the dryness in that forward roasted nut note. It’s not terrible or anything like that, but it seems to have a lot of room for improvement. I think the next time I feel like vaping pistachio ice cream, I’ll make my own using the Eyemake Ice Cream base and TFA Pistachio. Maybe some FLV to make it like the pistachio ice cream that has bits of real pistachios in it, but TFA Pistachio for the main flavor of the ice cream and that lovely Eyemake base for that sweet, thick, rich ice cream flavor. Cone optional.

If I didn’t know this was going to be weird by the description, I could have braced for it to be weird by the ingredients. Pretty much anything starring HS Blueberry is going to be at least little odd, as it tastes more like the color electric blue in a bottle than a blueberry. The question was whether it was going to be delightfully weird or just weird weird. The answer is delightfully, and weird in the way that’s hard to put down. It’s very HS Blueberry-forward but the Pistachio and touch of Yellow Cake are doing strange things to it. I don’t get any pistachio or cake out of this, but they fill it out and make it rich and almost creamy, and they seem to “cook” it in a way that’s hard to wrap my head around and even harder to explain. Not cooked blueberry, but cooked electric blue color. Imagine you had a muffin, but instead of blueberries it was baked with little balls of blue neon light in it. Pluck out those lights after it’s baked and look at them. Since they were really a color and not a flavor, they’ve changed color. They’re Octarine now. I’m going to have to keep an eye on this Staybert character…

Adding to what others have already said about this one, I'm one of those who gets some pepper taste from TFA Vanilla Custard. Not as much as their Vanilla Bean Ice Cream or White Chocolate, but still, pepper. But I decided to mix this one up anyway; I needed something I could shake up Saturday morning and take to a wedding Saturday night, and couldn't decided whether I wanted tobacco or custard. I still get the slightest bit of pepper from this, but rather than ruining the mix, it fits right in with the Turkish tobacco. I love the bolder tobacco on top, the vanilla coming in and building, the very rich and thick creamy vanilla custard inside, and then the caramel-coated tobacco finish, and so did everyone at the wedding who asked to try some. Thanks for giving me a use for that TFA Vanilla Custard!

Did Alfred really create a magic formula to fix cherry medicine off notes? No, unfortunately. I first tried this with 2% FLV Rainier Cherry in place of the INW Cherries, because I'd heard it worked with CAP Tart Cherry and might be some sort of miracle. It was still quite GNARLY. But all that really proves is that FLV Rainier Cherry is beyond help. Mixed it again as it is written here.... with a terrifying, unusably high amount of INW Cherries. And all I'm getting is a shake and vapeable sugary sweet super tasty bright red cherry candy juice. With no medicine!!! So, while I can't personally recommend experimenting with this using other cherries, I can definitely sign off on mixing it up just way it is. It's yummy.

As far as I can tell, this is a nearly flawless recipe. I have no idea what a cooked pluot would taste like, as I’ve only ever eaten them fresh, but now I can imagine that I do. The Liquid Amber really does give the stone fruit a cooked vibe. It’s interesting the way the fruits come across as situated within the custard instead of just on top of it, but the Liquid Amber isn’t getting weird with it. There’s a lovely, thick vanilla custard that is reminiscent of the only kind of clafoutis I’ve tried, a peach one, and a light crust note that works. I didn’t really get a sprinkling of powdered sugar at first, but the more of it a vaped, the more it came out. This seems like an exemplary use of most of these ingredients, especially the Blood Plum. Maybe FLV Apricot could have emphasized the cookedness of the pluot better than FA’s, but it’s really hard to say without knowing what a cooked pluot tastes like, and it’s a bangin stone fruit custard recipe just the way it is.

I would give this 4.5 stars if I could. Why not 5? Some cake flavor is there, but most of it, and all of its texture, gets smashed between sweet syrupy strawberries and rich, buttery vanilla cream after a longer steep. So despite the slight bakery note, it's basically just another strawberry and cream. On the other hand, when it comes to the strawberry and creams I've tried, it doesn't really get any tastier. The combination of strawberries works perfectly for a bit of fresh strawberries situated in strawberry syrup. If I wanted to "fix" it I might try it without the Whipped Cream, as it's powerful blending ability might be the main thing working to drown out the cake. However, that's probably playing a large part in it having such a sweet, rich finish. It might not fully read Strawberry Shortcake, but aside from that it ain't broke and doesn't really need fixing, just enjoying.

Brilliant addition of Papaya to give it that ripe tropical funkiness, but the cop-out marshmallow is just way to get out of putting the work in to balance that papaya just right and have it give all the base note you need, and it candies up the finish a bit, pulling away from the "tropical realness" a tad. Still, it's a lychee recipe that tastes pleasant, which is itself an accomplishment.

That FE Mango + VT Yellow Passion combo is killer! If I ever want a mango-passion recipe again (hint: I will) I'm totally stealing that pairing. But the Jelly Candy sticks out a little and takes the whole thing out of juice drink and into gummy candy territory. Maybe just a bit less of that, or thicken it up with a thicker tropical fruit like a low amount of CAP Sweet Mango or TFA Papaya. Or try some CAP Hibiscus, might give it a syrupy base and if the floral shines though, it wouldn't be out of place with those tropical fruits.

I can't say I "like" this juice, but I respect the hell out of it. So many recipes promise to have all these layers of flavor but vape like a bunch of stuff all muddled together, especially the ones that are more complex. This one actually delivers.

It took me way too long to get around to mixing this up. I love the way these ingredients work together, the mouthwatering citrusy pink guava and cactus with that weird but wonderful sort of tart strawberry-pineapple from the Guanabana on top and then the rich, creamy, funky banana-coconut base of the Guanabana with added depth and juiciness from the cactus. Just three ingredients, but so complex and full of flavor.

OMFG that is a great vape! The kiwi gets gets all tangled up with the strawberry+pineapple-esque top half of guanabana and it’s all juicy and tangy, while the sweet guava drenches the funky, creamy, banana+coconut like base in sweet red wonderfulness. It’s like adding Hawaiian punch to a tropical fruit smoothie. I've had a very hard time putting this one down.

To be fair, he warned that it might be a little throaty for some. The little bit of throat hit I get from Pink Guava is somehow amplified by one or both of these other ingredients that aren’t particularly rough on their own and this is too throaty for me. The flavors do blend together very well, though, and it makes something that does kind of taste like a natural fruit that doesn’t exist, a hot pink kiwi. I might try it again with both sweetener and cooling and see if that smooths it out, or a fairly neutral cream like TFA Vanilla Swirl. Or some FLV Guanabana?

I just can’t get into this. I like the Pink Guava and strawberry pairing but there’s just something too green and unripe about Apollo Feijoa for me, like a banana that’s not ripe enough to be edible yet, and it’s not mitigated here. Still, this makes me want to do a different 1-2-3 with Pink Guava and Strawberry and something else. Maybe a banana that’s not underripe, a coconut, or something fun like FLV Guanabana.

It is what it says it is. It takes that Sweet Guava that’s already very reminiscent of guava nectar and adds the right accoutrements to make it super taste like Jumex canned guava nectar. Sweeter, juicier, and a little more acidic tartness than Sweet Guava alone, without so much of the grassy peel and bubblegummy notes that I get from Sweet Guava by itself. Beautiful recipe.

It really tastes like a cheesecake with graham crust, topped with vanilla ice cream and guava syrup, with distinct fruit, cream, and crust notes. Seems like a good instructive recipe, there are things to be gleaned from this. Look how much Sweet Guava he had to use to get it to shine through all that heavy cream enough to be a little guava syrup on top. See how 1% Yes We Cheesecake goes a long way. It’s a recipe I’ll remember the next time I’m messing with any of these ingredients, and I appreciate that. Really the only flaw I can find here is that the butter here seems a bit excessive. French Vanilla Ice Cream is already buttery, HS Ice Cream is also very buttery, and together they get to tasting like what I imagine severely overchurned ice cream tastes like.

I kind of love this, especially the way the guava and cinnamon play off each other, the authenticity of the fried pastry dough and cream cheese, and the bit of warmth from the Kentucky Bourbon. It reminds me of a guava cream donut I bought from a Cuban food truck some years ago, but in fried pie shell instead of a donut. It doesn’t seem super saturated and in your face, flavor-wise, despite being perfectly balanced. It’s just not that intense. That could be a drawback if you’re looking to get whacked upside the head with flavor or a plus if you’re looking for an ADV with cinnamon. Personally, if I’d purchased it as a one-shot that said use at 12.25%, I’d probably try pushing it up to 18%. Maybe it would be terrible, I don’t know, but it’s worth a shot. This is an old recipe from 2017, I wonder how Emily would remix it if she were going to give it a facelift. I hope the fried pastry dough and CAP Sweet Guava would stay, but what other changes could be made? Maybe ditching the CDS in favor of Rich Cinnamon and some other bakery to make up for the missing D in CDS?

I tired a bunch of cinnamon recipes this past week and this one was easily my favorite. It’s like Cinnamon Toast Crunch in heavy cream with extra cinnamon. A CTC for cinnamon lovers. The cereal is tasty and authentic to CTC but it takes a backseat to the delicious rich cinnamon. Although it tastes yummy and fairly authentic, I get a little maple off-note with FLV Cinnamon Crunch, and the texture is a little soft. The extra Rich Cinnamon and Cereal 27 fixes both of those issues beautifully. Although cream base is more of a heavy cream than an authentic milk, but that really just makes it extra yummy; I wish I could put heavy cream on my cereal instead of milk and not die of extreme fatness. The bottom line is that CBV should post more of his non-tobacco adventures.

This turned out terrific! It might not have the quite the booziness of a strong bourbon & coke but it has the right flavor and the cold and acidity gives it enough of a bite that I’m not really missing the booze. That little bit of FLV Bourbon gives it a nice charred oak that shows up well. There’s a delicate balance with 007 and you can’t just throw anything in there and have it still work as a cola, but this does, and I dig it. Upping the WS-23 seems to combat the bourbon warmth and keep it from getting weird, but not upping it so much that it floods out the flavor with ice - tastes like a smart play. Thanks for this!

Can’t comment on authenticity to the actual food but this is interesting and delicious. Love the creamy rice pudding with hints of citrus and vanilla and a slight hint of cinnamon.

What a fun little sort of abstract recipe. I could probably do without the extra throat hit from the FLV Heat, but maybe it drives home the cocktail profile, making it burn like strong liquor in a way that it wouldn’t with just the cinnamon & sour apple? Regardless, the apple, raspberry, and citrus soda all come through and play well together, and the little bit of cinnamon on top makes it more interesting. If you mix this up, you’ll probably think as I do now that there should be more apple + citrus soda and raspberry + citrus soda recipes.

I don’t consider myself a basic strawberry and cream guy, but this is so weird that despite vaping a ton of it I still can’t say for sure whether I like it or not. The top notes are tart and citrusy, warm with a hint of spice, and little floral. The base is sweet juicy apple and tart and syrupy passion fruit along with that strange sort of woody richness of lemongrass. It’s a well rounded, full-flavored juice that combines many different elements without being muddled, and that makes it interesting. It’s not harsh at all, despite being citrusy and spicy, it has a smooth finish.

Well, that is almost 100% a Hot Tamale, right down to the sweet gummy candy body. There’s a little bit of a soapy off-note I get with jelly candy but it’s faint, intermittent, and mostly covered up with strong candy cinnamon. It is painful, not only to my “little pussy throat” but even to my mouth after vaping it for a bit, but I think that’s part of the attraction. Pleasure and pain have such a thin line between them. If you’re the kind of person who likes to hurt yourself just to feel something, this is a recipe for you. This is not a vape for people who eat Hot Tamales one at a time, it’s for folks who shovel them their faceholes by the handful.

It’s supposed to be a “sweet rice cooked in coconut cream with a touch of pineapple baked in and sprinkled with cinnamon.” That’s quite a profile and it seems nearly impossible to get perfect. It’s tasty, but the pineapple doesn’t taste “baked in.” The rice and coconut cream is lovely and works well with the sprinkle of cinnamon, but it’s heavy on the pineapple and the raw pineapple tastes odd against creamy rice. I don’t know for sure how to make pineapple taste cooked in a way that won’t clash with coconut cream and rice, but make just some kind of brown sugar or caramel flavor will lend it that caramelization. Maybe removing the FLV Pineapple that’s so much brighter and fresher and just relying on the Golden Pineapple for all the pineapple flavor.

Don’t want to be a dick but this recipe doesn’t seem to be emulating that at all. The Bourbon & Red Cinnamon do a great job of being Fireball in these amounts/ratio and I’ll probably steal that if I never need a Fireball whiskey component in a recipe, but the coffee in FLV Irish Cream is coming through aplenty here and just makes it taste weird.

If only the Super Sweet and Peach Gummy lent the cinnamon their candyiness, but they don’t. You might put cinnamon gummy bears and peach rings candy in your mouth at the same time, or at least I would, but you probably wouldn’t take cinnamon out of the cabinet and sprinkle it on peach rings candy, which is what this tastes like. Also, that’s too much Super Sweet for me, it leaves a strong lingering sucralose aftertaste here.

Solid soda vibes from this super refreshing beauty. The citrus does a terrific job of uplifting the elderflower and creating a citrus soda for elderflower lovers. A shot of elderflower liqueur in 7-up would be the grossest of oversimplifications, it tastes like it a soda built ground up specifically to be elderflower-infused. Pear isn't super defined but gives it a nice pomaceous sweetness that teams up with the more floral honeysuckle sweetness so nicely.

This is a terrific tropical mix loaded with complimentary flavors. The best way I can describe it is... this tastes like what Mountain Dew would taste like if it had originated in a Caribbean paradise rather than in Tennessee. It's thick and sweet but still has a beverage feel. I can pick out some specific fruit flavors at different times - orange, mango, passionfruit, peach, lemon/lime soda syrup, but taken together it just screams TROPICAL. The African Horned Cucumber is pretty funky on its own but all the citrus and other things here seem to clean that up and what I mostly get from it is like a passionfruit tartness. It’s very juicy and refreshing, as several of the ingredients are on their own, and there’s a nice juxtaposition of sharp tangy top notes and deep syrupy sweet base. Perfect for summer or wishing it were summer.

On one hand, Midori is something I've chased off an on for a very long time and I've never gotten anywhere near this close to that unique flavor. Not even in the ballpark of this close. I don't know exactly how it all fits together but I'm convinced now that FLV Honeydew, Melon Rind, and Wild Melon, maybe with the help of one or more of these other flavors, is essential for Midori. And it does indeed taste like Midori mixed with sweet and sour. I'm definitely going to steal from this recipe to try to recreate what a I want - a cocktail made of Midori, coconut rum, and Sprite or 7up. So I really appreciate that bit of awesomeness. However, I get a bit of that charred oak that makes FLV Bourbon so good in other settings, and it tastes weird, and frankly a little gross, up against that melon. There has to be something else to give it that alcohol warmth and darker sweetness that won’t bring along anything icky. Maybe TFA Kentucky Bourbon. Maybe FA Liquid Amber. Maybe one of the rum flavors. Basically, the Bourbon makes this taste like it was forced to be an all-FLV recipe when it shouldn’t have been.

Weeeeow, that’s terrific! It’s just absolutely dripping with juiciness, maybe the juiciest juice I’ve EVER tried. That WS-23 and mint from the Cucumber Mint complement each other so well. The iciness doesn’t drown out the flavor. 2% TFA Honeydew is about my limit for that stuff and it can be a bully, but it’s not pushing out the cucumber, which is surprising. It actually seems to be amplifying it vs. Cucumber Mint as a single flavor. All of these flavors work together beautifully. The only thing I can really say by way of criticism is that I’m not convinced 0.1% TFA Peppermint is actually doing anything at all here. It’s not a very strong flavor - 3 or 4% is not an unheard of amount for something like a peppermint ice cream. However, I haven’t tried it without it so I can’t say for sure that it isn’t doing anything.

Mission accomplished for a thick glass of pureed mixed melon and cucumber, but it seems to be crying out for something kind of coolant. That CAP Sweet Watermelon is a bit candied and it’s interesting how mixing it with cucumber here helps it be more like a natural watermelon, but it comes across as warm and a little soupy as-is and isn’t as refreshing as it should be. I think that has a lot to do with the TFA Cucumber, but rather than switching cucumbers, seems like it could be addressed with a little WS-23 or Polar Blast or both for a double-sided cooling effect.

This is a solid recipe that does indeed taste like a nice recipe for a hot day or a tired palate. Lime is probably an even better pairing than the much more commonly seen melon with cucumber. I do wish it had a little more chill, like some Polar Blast on the end. As it stands, it kind of tastes like dressing up a glass of cucumber-lime gatorade with a slice of cucumber and a sprig of mint, but forgetting the ice.

It's floral, but the florality is subdued, more something in the air than flowers in your mouth. It's beyond juicy and into wet, as something called "Rain" should be. There's some tartness to it that reinforces that because it's mouthwatering.

I haven’t single-flavor tested this particular Cherimoya but those flavors in general can get banana-y. I don’t know. I also don’t care, because a full flavored grapefruit/banana tastes great to me.

It seems like some cactus is a good idea for that juiciness, but much much less than 2%. Would love to see this “fixed” somehow, but admittedly I’m not sure how. The creator says 1% cactus wasn’t enough. How would you get more juiciness in there without messing up that neat profile. Maybe a very light touch of TFA Honeydew in addition to some amount of Cactus that’s less less than 2%? Or maybe some of that really juicy WF Starfruit?

This might be the only thing that CAP Grapefruit is good for, but it’s very good for it. The recipe is light in flavor, but very refreshing and even feels effervescent. Not as bold and acidic as I remember Squirt being, but it has been awhile. IIRC it tastes just right for it, just like a little watered down. It makes me want to crank up both flavors a bit and see if it still works as well as it does as written, but with just a bit more intensity, without going awry. If not, one or the other flavors might need to be backed up with something else.

Peachy keen! A POG with peach instead of passionfruit and grapefruit instead of guava. The peach comes in underneath and realistic to the point of almost feeling the fuzz on it, while the grapefruit and orange blend together with some of the peach on top into some kind of delicious fanciful peach citrus hybrid fruit. I can taste some cream in there with the peach so it’s not just an all-fruit no-cream mix, but who doesn’t love peaches and cream? The whole thing is just pleasant, fairly easy to vape, and full-flavored and satisfying. The cream doesn’t fully mitigate a little harshness here.

It tastes like a celebration of citrus, with identifiable grapefruit, orange, and lemon flavors. Lots of zesty tartness and wonderful balance of bitter and sweet. It punched me with flavor without being harsh or overdone. It does taste like a wonderful marmalade, with all those magical bits of citrus peel enveloped in sweet jelly. My only beef with it is is how many times the word “thick” appears in the description - there’s even a “voluptuous” in there. It’s really not all that thick to me, it leaves me wishing there was something to fill in the base more, some more goopy sweetness. But it would have to be something that doesn’t drag down those lovely top notes too much. Still, definitely a way better citrus mix than vaping FA Citrus Mix standalone.

Addictively delicious. It tastes like nothing I’ve ever tasted before, which makes it hard to describe.

It tastes like the green-yellow-red color of a mango if that color were a flavor, with some gently citrusy notes and a wet fruity bubblegum syrup body. All of that is situated, somehow, in a creamy silky custard, which, even without sweetener, has a sweet, sugary finish, like the alien making this custard did not skimp on the sugar or maybe forgot to brûlée a snozzberry crème brûlée.

This tastes amazing and delicious, just like the bizarre but addictive recipe it was based on, with a similar otherworldly fruity topping. It's similarly situated on a creamy silky custard with a sweet, sugary finish. I actually prefer the original just a little more, though I'm not sure if that has more to do with the shock of how wonderful Golden Snozzberry Custard was, when on paper it looks like it could have been a nightmare, or if it has more to do with what I perceive as the main difference between Rainbow Snozzberry Custard and Golden Snozzberry Custard. The Golden Snozzberry Custard came out tasting to me like it was perfectly balanced between the fantasmagorical fruit and rich custard. This one tastes little unbalanced in favor of the custard. Which is not to say there's anything wrong with the recipe. I'd just say it's the Snozzberry for people who liked Golden Snozzberry but wished there was a little more emphasis on the creamy custard.

This is alchemy. Not the fact that nails what I imagine an apricot version of one of those creamy-ish hard candy dollar apiece gourmet suckers, which doesn’t seem like an impossible feat, but the way it uses such an assortment of difficult flavors to do it. I was scared the result would be a disaster when I was mixing 3% FW Hard Candy, which should give off some gnarly hairspray-like off notes, with Toasted Marshmallow, as it seems the part of that that makes it “toasty” would be weird and probably kind of gross here. But my fear was unfounded. I can’t figure out how this works, but it does, beautifully. Sweet and mouthwatering, with a thicker creamier mouthfeel than a typical hard candy, contrasted with a more tart and citric candy-type apricot that still tastes definitively apricotty. Freakin alchemy.

The cooked apricot base is is on point, and although there has to be an easier way - like with WF or VT Croissant flavors - to build the danish, what’s here works for a tasty pastry. But there’s something weird in the top notes, something about the way the flavors are combining makes that frosting just a little plasticky or overly waxy. I wish I knew how to fix it, but I don’t know what’s actually doing that, because these flavors have seemed fine to me in other settings. It’s just something off about the way they’re meshing here.

Rather than an apricot pipe tobacco, this is more of a fruity dessert tobacco with apricot happening to be the fruit, like an Apricot RY4. It’s rich and satisfying, with thick, dark, brown sugar-like sweet cream blending with the tobacco and fruit notes. I’ve tried a few peach tobaccos that I’ve liked and even created one, but I like this one even more.

This is nowhere near as bad as I was afraid it could be. Most of these savory flavors are disgusting. This is a little bit McCormick's Bac'n Bits, like halfway between real bacon and fake bacon, but not anything grosser than that. It's nice and smokey and that goes really well with the maple frosting that it shares the top notes with. Donut base is solid. But something is missing. SALT. What makes those maple bacon donuts so great is that contrast between the salty bacon and sweet frosting. Brain can kind of fill in the salt with that smokey business, but this still makes me wish we had a straight-up salt flavor. I got an idea from this, though. FLV Beer Nuts is quite salty, but not salty enough to get salt without getting nuts. OoO Bacon tastes like bacon without being gross but needs salt. Put them together.... add some more peanut butter, some bread, some banana... An Elvis sandwich vape is possible, even more possible than a perfect maple bacon donut.

That’s really, really nice. I get the sweet dark berry with a little more sharpness and tartness from the blackcurrant and a back end of some of that sweet but a little spicy, light leafy tobacco. The blackcurrant is used really well, it can get mediciney if cranked up too high but it seems like it’s doing just want it needed to do here and nothing more. Those berries, even with their juicy, jammy body, have a tendency to trail off at the end and I like the way the tobacco just snips that off and gives it a crisp finish that comes as a surprise after all that berry. Although, I must say, now that I’ve read the description, I really want to vape an accurate Backwoods Berry, with some darker, dirtier tobacco instead of, or along with, the Virginia. I hadn’t thought of it yet but thanks to this little mix, I’m 100% sure FLV Jammy Berry is the key to making that happen.

That is as refreshing as an unseasonably cool spring breeze and even kinda tastes like one. It's juicy and packed with flavor while still being light enough for a warm weather ADV. The lime seems to have faded slightly after a terribly long steep to the point where I'm not distinctly tasting lime, but there's definitely more than just lemon zest behind that forward hops. The lemony citrus plays very well with it. The hops tastes altered - more floral less piney - by the other flavors and the entire thing tastes like it came from, and belongs out in, nature. I see someone talking about talking it golfing and while I don't golf, that sounds like the perfect pairing of a vape with an outdoor activity. The only thing I could say by way of critique is that if you want it to still be clearly limey even if someone lets it steep for freakin ever, maybe look for something to reinforce Lime Cold Pressed that will hold up over time. Doesn't really need it, though, it's hops & citrus heaven just the way its.

I think this might have suffered from the ridiculously long steep it's gotten because of my negligence in getting around to trying it after it was mixed. I get a very very sweet and thick creamy banana and creamy coconut. I had to double check to see what kind of sweetener was in here because it's so sweet and was surprised to find none. Although the banana and coconut are very thick, buttery rich, and creamy, I don't get any separation between the banana/coconut and ice cream flavors. Just banana first and then the coconut finish. I'm sure there probably was some ice cream with banana and coconut toppings that I would have gotten from this if I'd tried it six weeks ago, but it's all blended in now. Both the banana and the coconut taste candied, but not like Runts candy. It tastes like if I took two Valentine's chocolates, one banana cream filled and one coconut cream filled, surgically removed every bit of the chocolate coating, and then popped both of those cream fillings right into my facehole. It's not what it's supposed to be, or at least no longer what it's supposed to be, but I love it.

I don't think this recipe will change your mind about these For Pipe flavors, but if you already know you like them, I can't imagine not loving this. Personally, I appreciate it for reminding me how good Gold for Pipe is. This recipe steeps into exactly as promised, a wet and juicy but slightly smokey and dirty sweet, rich pipe tobacco. It's surprising to me how present that apricot is on the front end at just 1%. I usually find it to be a fairly good background note that doesn't assert itself too much, but it works differently with these tobaccos. Which is not to say it's too strong here; it's balanced perfectly on top of the tobacco here. Awesome recipe, as usual for CBV.

I've long wondered whether I'm more sensitive than most to AP and this recipe convinced me that I am. It's just a little too nutty and kinda corny for a biscuit/cookie here combined with the AP in Biscuit. But I'm not sure it would be better if nutty and corniness were backed down, because it goes really, really well with the rich, sweet bourbon cream just the way it is.

About a year, about two dozen different recipes (not counting different versions of pretty much the same recipe) and this is the best thing I've put in a pod so far. It is indeed a strawberry pina colada gummy candy. I did not really think all four of those notes (strawberry, pineapple, coconut, and especially gummy candy body) would play well at 25mg nic salt 50/50 VG/PG in my Caliburn but they absolutely do, perfectly. I'm a little worried that 1% CAP Super Sweet is going to tank my pod very fast and thinking maybe I should have used a little less instead of following the recipe exactly, but I haven't gone through enough yet to have regrets. Just had to go ahead and leave a review about how well this fairly simple recipe delivers the flavor.

Hell yes! I've never had a sour melon ball candy but I imagine this is exactly what one would taste like. Mixed at 25mg salt nic 50/50 VG/PG for my Caliburn. Plenty of tangy-sweet, satisfying melon flavor with a candied base, which is hard to do in this dinky little device. Surprisingly sweet without sweetener, especially in this set-up, which is great, because (presumably) it won't tank by pod so fast and things that rely on Super Sweet. It really does taste amazing. I needed a break from my own failed attempts at pod recipes so I gave this a try and I'm so glad I did.

Holy shit that’s perfect. Spot on Smarties. You want to vape Smarties? This is the recipe. I was really skeptical of the FA Almond in there until I went to mix it and took a whiff pf Almond before dripping it into the bottle. It 100% belongs in there. MIND BLOWN. It seems to me that this mixer is a genius for figuring that out and Crazyndalazdayz just gained a follower. Just make sure to mind the steep to get that gnarly grain alcohol taste out of the TFA Sweet & Tart.

I tried this despite having an issue with FLV Candy Roll that not everyone has, so that's on me. The first half dozen or so draws were marred by whatever that weird rubbing alcohol note is that I seem to get from every fresh redrip of anything with FLV Candy Roll in. After that it does taste like blue raspberry pixie sticks, but it was a little harsh. It does what it’s supposed to do with just three ingredients and might be great for someone who doesn’t have whatever bizarre issue I have with FLV Candy Roll, but even so it is a little light on the Blue Raz flavor and it seems like this could be done better with just two ingredients balanced just right, The WF Pixie Stick Candy and WF Sour Blue Raz Candy.

The first half dozen or so draws were marred by whatever that weird rubbing alcohol note is that I seem to get from every fresh redrip of anything with FLV Candy Roll in there. After that wears off, it’s a nearly perfect purple pixie, a great grape candy. Just to be a little nitpicky, it doesn’t feel quite as powdery or granulated as a fresh hit of grape pixie stick, though, it gets a little bogged down with syrupy candy, like right after the pixie dust melts in your mouth, assuming you’re not some heathen who swallows it while it’s still sugar.

I had some doubts about whether the Fizzy Sherb would punch through the kinda waxy orange and the more syrupy Sweet Tangerine, but it does turn those into an orange soda. Not an exact match for orange crush, but super solid for a quick and simple orange soda. It vapes a little warm though, as oranges tend to do. I want to try it again with some cooling and with following the creator’s suggestion of using a tiny bit of CAP Super Sweet to bridge that very slight separation between the orange essence top note and a little tangerine poking through underneath. There’s also some throat hit that coolant might help with, but none more than would be expected from a citrus soda vape.

First of all, it’s delightful. I love this recipe. And I’m glad someone used my silly little recipe as a building block to create something they liked and thought was worth sharing. But, it’s not a Spot-On 7 Up for me. Even at just half a percent, the honeysuckle stands out. It’s like having a glass of cold 7 up with a sprig of honeysuckle with several flowers on it to make it fancy AF. Again, I love that, but it might not be for everyone.

Never had Kheer, can't comment on authenticity. This has no doubt suffered from the really long steep it got before I got around to trying it, with the way that Sweet Rice fades, bit it is still a little ricey, maybe just ricey enough. It looks like a lot of the cardamom has drifted off, too, and I didn't know cardamom did that. But I do get a hint of it, and it's pleasant. What I'm mostly getting here is a darkly sweet, rich, creamy base with roasted nutty top notes. It doesn't really taste like ice cream topped with honey-roasted peanuts - the base has some rice and isn't exactly ice cream, nuts are almondy and not peanutty, there's that hint of cardamom spice, and the dark sweet stuff isn't quite honey - the way it all comes together reminds me of ice cream topped with honey-roasted peanuts. I think if like the idea of ice cream topped with honey-roasted peanuts, you'd like this. It's yummy. I love it. Don't really know how to make it "better." But, adding some of that VT Rice Base might help the rice stick around better/longer. The Cardamom is probably supposed to taste stronger, but I wouldn't recommend increasing it to make this stand up to a steep. It's detectable and delightful right were it is.

Love it. Cool tropical fruit topped yogurt, all day. I can't really tell what sort of tropical fruit this is supposed to be, probably because of the stupid long steep this got before I got around to trying it (oops), but it's clearly tropical, sweet, and tangy. The up front touch of coolant is delightful. Personally, I've never been a real fan of yogurt vapes, because... hot yogurt? I mean, yuck. But the cooling makes that sour dairy enjoyable. It prepares the palate, but still leaves room for fruit and then that yogurt, which is authentic and has a super silky mouthfeel. This is a winner, thank you!

It’s yummy. It fixes the too-light milky and eggy notes with FLV Eggnog, without watering down the delightful spice of FLV Eggnog, along with adding a lovely touch of vanilla. All that’s missing now is the booze!
User: ID10-T Score: 5 Entered: about 2 months ago
OMG that’s Delicious! What a lovely combination for flavors. Doesn’t really taste like banana eggnog - more like a silky smooth banana pudding mixed with vanilla pudding and then topped with nutmeg and butterscotch. I love that dark sticky sweetness of butterscotch with the banana and the rich milky body, and the spice is just icing on the cake.

What a robust, interesting flavor! I can see where it might not be for everyone, but I love it. There’s so much going on in here, I can’t even focus all of it in a single hit, but it’s not muddled. It’s one of those things where you keep coming back to look at from another angle. A sweet Snack Pack banana pudding-type banana is the most forward flavor, but it’s quickly joined by warm spice and the boozy start of a full-bodied, oaky bourbon that carries almost entirely throughout the vape. Then the tobacco that clearly I.D.’s this as a tobacco flavor, which carries through the rest of the vape, followed immediately by a rich creaminess. It’s almost like chewing on an unlit banana-flavored cigar while chugging a mouthful of bourbon laced with nutmeg at the same time. Just so much it’s borderline overstimulating, befitting the inspiration here, I think. Every so often, even though it’s not anywhere in the ingredients individually, I swear I get a hint of chocolate, too, like maybe the banana cigar was stored next to a chocolate cigar long enough for it to absorb just a little of that flavor. Craziness.

These notes need some work. It says OoO Coconut Custard in bold in one spot, but WF Coconut Custard elsewhere. It’s WF Coconut Custard in the recipe itself, so that’s what I used. I love the coconut milk flavor here, and it goes so well with the mix of warm spices. The rum note is terrific as far as booziness and in a sense authenticity, but I wish it had some of that darker, sweeter molassesy or brown sugary rum flavor. It’s like it’s got spiced white rum in it and I’ve never heard of that, gimme some of that dark base to slide in under those spices and mingle with the richer coconut cream.

Someone get this man some FLV Heat. That’s what this really needs. The cinnamon and little touch of Eggnog brings some warmth and spice but doesn’t quite hit that “spicy” bar. It might also help to fully cook the mango more than the bourbon is doing. I enjoyed vaping this because mango, but it still tastes too fresh for sauce. Unfortunately I don’t have an answer for what would definitely take it there. Experiments with FA Liquid Amber and mango haven’t produced promising results. Maybe a bit of something jammy that tastes like some other cooked down fruit would get it the rest of the way there? VT Jam It or something like that?
User: ID10-T Score: 4 Entered: about 2 months ago
It’s smooth and rich and rummy with a nice subtle spice on top and coconut throughout. I really appreciate the way that marshmallow comes in with the thick sweet finish. But, that citrus from the FA Custard pokes out some on top. I wouldn’t have guessed that it would, because I’ve tasted it covered up completely in several recipes, but it comes out a little on top and the coconut top note (the richer, basier coconut is great, tough) is slightly marred by it. It doesn’t taste like it really belongs here. It seems like this could be fixed by swapping it out for a different custard, but notes say a couple of different custards didn’t work so well. Maybe covering it up with something else? The darker rum flavor is lovely in the base here but doesn’t really bring the warm boozy top notes - maybe adding something like VT Light Rum would improve that and simultaneously overpower that lemony thing the FA Custard is doing?

Jesus H. Christ that's a fuckin fantastic recipe! If strawberry Twizzlers is your candy Achilles heel and you've ever wished you could have it in a vape and not have to take the calories and sugar of eating the things, you need to try this. I can't imagine better recipe for that profile ever existing. Just perfect.

It's hard to sit in judgment of a clone or remix without ever having tried the original juice, and in this case I haven't. It’s apparently some bright, tart strawberry licorice juice and for all I know this could be a perfect or near-perfect copy, or very likely even an improvement. Which would be an automatic five stars whether I like it or not, right? It hits the profile for sure and is a very good and tasty recipe, but I do get a little of that acetone-y chemical taste off the green apple.

This is described as "a surprisingly accurate Swedish fish." Is it? Yes. And I love how sweet and juicy it is. But, I do get a little tiny bit of raspberry floral that throws it off Swedish Fish just a hair. I heard it might steep out if left longer than the 3 days recommended here, so maybe it just needs a longer steep time. Also heard replacing 1% of the Gushy Candy with 1% FW Razzleberry might fix it. Haven't tried either of those things yet.

I could barely vape this. Not that it's a bad recipe, but I get a lot of harshness from TFA Swedish Fish (not everyone does) and nothing in here mitigated that. But when I pushed through the pain, I noticed two really intriguing things about this recipe. For one, 1% FA Bilberry is terrifying. If you've ever single-flavor tested FA Bilberry too high or tried a recipe with too much Bilberry in it, you're dripping that into the bottle just knowing this whole thing is gonna taste like sweatsocks. Nope. It does not taste like sweatsocks or anything off at all, it just turns the candy berry from a red Swedish Fish (artificial lingonberry?) flavor to something indistinct to as far as actual fruit is concerned but very distinctly blue as a candy. Very interesting. Is it the CAP Lemon Lime cleaning it up? The Swedish Gummy? Or some synergy between them both and the Bilberry? This warrants further investigation. I might try throwing an abnormal amount of Bilberry at some different candy flavors and see what happens. The other intriguing thing is that the, Koolada doesn’t hurt the gummy body at all, it just comes it after it. That stuff destroys creams but the fact that it doesn’t hurt the candy texture is really interesting and promising. I don't know why you'd want cold candy, but if you do, it's nice to know that can be done with a tail-end cooling that doesn't interfere with top notes rather than only relying on WS-23 for that.

Amazing recipe! I couldn't reach all of these ingredients without standing up and walking across the room so I made a few subs: FW Blueberry at 5.75% instead of FLV Blueberry, TFA Blueberry Extra at 2.75% instead of CAP Blueberry Extra, 2% TFA Bavarian Cream instead of 1% FLV Cream, 4% TFA Dragonfruit instead of INW Dragon Fruit, FE Lemon instead of JF Juicy Lemon (same %), 3% TFA Vanilla Swirl instead of INW Shisha Vanilla, and 0.25% CAP SS instead of FW Sweetener. Kept the 1% WS-23. Steeped it for three weeks.... The result? I would give this 6 stars if I could. It tastes kind of like frozen blueberry pie filling topped with rich vanilla whipped cream except turned upside down. Delicious! Thank you!!

Satisfying AF pear & cream with a nice balance between the two - I love it. Other people want to play with that cream base, but I want to see where I go with with this ratio of TFA/FA Pear and backed up with some Fuji. It really tastes like pear, crisp but sweet, with great depth.

That's an ingenious use of the 1-2-3 format. This is what VT Banana Custard should taste like. For one thing, VT Banana Custard has no custard. Also, it's a nice clean natural banana, but there's no punch to it, it's not bold enough to really carry a banana recipe by itself. This tastes like it fixes both of those problems without introducing any new ones, which is just terrific. That bright banana top note still has an artificial ring to it, but it's not full-on candy, it's like the banana flavoring in banana pudding, plus real bananas, and it's plenty flavorful. Then you have that thick rich custard and full, creamy mouthfeel, but without anything obtrusive getting in the banana's way. Other than adding some bakery if you wanted some Nilla Wafers with your Nana Custard, I don't think this could be any better.
