Unlucky; Marshmallow front, Sweetened Oat Cereal, Milk exhale.

"In your ears bears the number thirteen. A sequence of success."
This recipe was given a pretty awesome review by Wayne Walker in his "This Week with Wayne: UNLUCKY recipe" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4zMhLGetDU&t=193s). It was a great little segment featuring my recipe and then he talked about Flavorah's new comings. Which at the time fit perfect for the video. However after making this recipe, Wayne took the words right out of my mouth with it lacking authenticity in being actual lucky charm/aplhabit cereal which is the goal here, fucking dried sugary marshmallow bits, sweet OAT ceral, not fucking corn or rice, and the finest milk your bank account affords. So I went back to the lab, after consuming a bowl of alphabit marshmallow cereal like a fat kid in my childhood, determined to get this "better", because its always out there. (insert shitty meme) Along with this recipe ive been picking apart Bluebird in which ive only had once and Lucky Bird ive only smelled a bottle once. Not much to go off when ya just smell it, however in recipe development its crucial. Theres something i noticed they both had in aroma. That would be Jungle Flavors Biscuit. I dont know if it is at all what they use, i just said that, nor do i really care, that shit right there to me tastes exactly like if you took one lucky charm/alphabit cereal piece, put it in your mouth, and just let it dissolve on its own. (Highly recommend you try this method in actual foods to really pick them apart). Anyway i cant believe you are still reading this shit, get yourself a cookie. Like FA cookie, this is what gives JF biscuit the softness and slight dryness thats just about to meet the milk. Picture a piece of cereal floating in milk, JF biscuit equals the part that met its fate of milk while FA cookie is still waiting for your lazy ass to either forget about or submerge those little sweet fucks in the milk. Pheww....
Soooooo a bit of backstory that brought us here:
Sometimes we come across a flavor thats hyped up and its not at all to our expectations. We throw it to the side, but not away. Thinking, almost wishing "hey if i hang on to this maybe it will suddenly work." Thats the exact example of FLV Cereal Crunch. Either i have "lucked" out and unlocked its secret by drowning it in things i like, or its just a simple change in perception on the concentrate entirely. Using this without the help of a lot of other ingredients is pretty gross, like card board left out in the rain, dried and then rolled in sugar. Thats pretty awful and no human should be subjected to vape that. But when we throw that wet sugary card board into a bowl of things we are more accustomed to, we kinda like it. But ya know what? Fuck that, because (insert previously used shitty meme) FLV Cereal Crunch is more like a greasy sweet dough, which is good and all but it turns coils into doo doo brown city real fast. Sure its complex and yea maybe it could be steered towards what we all want, but thats where we are reminded of the benefits of sometimes being unlucky with a flavor. I cant shit on the flavor too much, it kinda got noticed and that felt pretty good, so thanx FLV crunch cereal R.I.P
Here is my take on that nostalgic Marshmallows, Cereal, and Milk.
FA MARSHMALLOW/CAPS MARSHMALLOW/TPA BAVARIAN CREAM: I used these to make up the dried marshmallows that have been sitting in milk.
JF BISCUIT/FA COOKIE: Here is the sweetened puffed oat cereal grain note. Fa cookie helps to boost the grain perception and help flv crunch cereal from falling apart into nothing but wet cardboard. This combo however stimulates and reminds me of that edge of the cereal thats peaking up over the milk as its floating there, waiting to be consumed.
FA WHIPPED CREAM/OOO CREAM MILKY UNDERTONES PG/FLV CREAM/FA CREAM FRESH: Theres a million milk bases out there, ones we all know and love. After Unluckys review i gave myself a little challenge to not use TFA Toasted Marshmallow towards the milk. While OOO Cream Milky may be a common usage now as well, i dont care and i am more interested in achieving the best profile for the recipe. FA whipped cream has this dairy note that hits the front in a non cheesy or sour way. I wanted a thick heavy whole milk so i went with these. FLV Cream is what gives the milk a slight thickening texture, while FA Cream fresh helps to bring all the creams together in the front while adding "wetness".
TPA TOASTED MARSHMALLOW: Ya know im not sure what this stuff does but its essential to the mix. Its adding to depth of the cereal grain and baked oat perception while also stimulating the perception of milk that has had cereal in it. I tried to do this mix without it but nothing i have on hand hits the spot, so i kept it.
FA MERINGUE/FA WHATEVERYOUWANTITTOBE: I chose now to keep this separate from the profile notes. It really should be called FA whatever you want. This is playing three roles in the recipe. Add to the sugary cereal notes, the texture of milk, and the smoothness of binding the entire profile together. Without it, i feel like you'd be left with a harsh dry mess.
I marked this as a shake n vape because its developed to get better over time as you vape the warmer or colder your device gets the more notes are brought out. Enjoy the exploration that is FA Meringue, or milk, or cereal, or egg whites and sugar and awesome, yea.......
I know it may seem like a lot of ingredients but trust me on this they are all key to bringing each layer together.
*Marked this as in progress because im toying around with the milk and marshmallow base to see which is the best. if nothing works, tfa toasted marshmallow will go back in. Which it did, nothings quite hitting that special something to bring this all together.
Thanks to wayne again for the review and mentioning my work on ATF, and everyone doing there thing! Keep doing you things!

HAVEN: STARRING: COOKIE DOUGH, CUSTARD, & CREME BRULEE
Directed by: Liquid Antlers
So in this version I wanted to make my own custard that didn't use the common concentrates we use to make them.
FLV COOKIE DOUGH/FA COOKIE: They absolutely knocked this flavor out of the park. You even get little bits of chocolate chips. What more is there to say. It just works. While its good it lacks texture so I added FA cookie to help boost the grain perception.
INW SHISHA VANILLA/TPA BAVARIAN CREAM/FA MERINGUE/HS ICE CREAM. I wanted a custard leaning more towards the white and ice cream side rather than heavy on the egg yolks, I used meringue for egg whites and the rest for sugar and creams. Hs ice cream adds weight and depth to the profile.
INW CREME BRULEE/FA CREAM FRESH/FLV CREAM: Again this combo just goes to show good juice and flavorings don't have to always be a challenge, they just have to be the right ones. Inw creme brulee is what it says. While the creams are there to help balance and add emulsion to the cream.

Good PieLot 70/30(BluePielot Simplified)(remix)
This is my take on Stewart's Blueberry Pie in the Sky Ice Cream.
FW Blueberry/FLV Blueberry Muffin: these two make up the bright artificial blueberry commonly found in bb ice cream. Not too candy or authentic.
TFA VBIC/HS Ice Cream/FLV Cream/CAP Sweet Cream/FLV Frosting: This is the ice cream base without a sharp vanilla note and more of a sweet cream profile.
TFA Graham Cracker Clear: this gives the slight pie dough taste at the end of the vape. This Graham Cracker has always reminded me of non baked Graham Crackers or very moist not so crunchy ones.
FLV Cupcake Batter: adds corn starch to the ice cream and, powdered sugar as well as softness to the Graham Cracker.
CAPS Super Sweet: sugar to sweeten everything up like ice cream should be. Adjust super sweet to your liking.
Thank you and enjoy!
PiELOT Blu 70/30
Stewart's Ice Cream makes a Blueberry Pie in the Sky ice cream. Here is my take on the only blueberry ice cream I like.
Steep: SnV: ok. 3 days: good. 1 week: best.
What is all this stuff doing?:
Fw Blueberry: this provides the blueberry flavor that would go into ice cream.
Cap&TfaVBIC: caps is a softer vanilla bean commonly used in ice cream. Tfa has a deeper vanilla note and also provides a minor custardy ingredient to bring life to the whole mix.
Sugar cookie/Graham clear/Meringue: this combination provides the pie "dough" balls found in the actual ice cream. In creating this and eating the actual ice cream, do not think "pie crust" or baked, warm crust. This isn't a Blueberry pie with a side of ice cream. Think cookie dough, like the little bits found in ice cream, but pie ingredients. To me sugar cookie and Graham clear do not taste like a prepared cooked version of the two. Example: Graham Cracker clear tastes like soft baked Graham Cracker or one that has not been baked yet.
Blueberry Muffin: here is the pilot of the whole mix. This to me is exactly like the blueberry flavor used to make the ice cream more artificial like gas station blueberries found in a muffin, but no actual muffin. The slight muffin taste you may get supports the pie while the very up front bright blueberry is the strand of berry ripping through the Sky of ice cream!
Ice cream/vienna Cream/sweet Cream: I didn't want a noticeably sharp "vanilla ice cream". I wanted more of a cold stone sweet cream ice cream and these do exactly that.
Marshmallow/Van. Whipped Cream: here is where the ripple effect is made. Marshmallow binds the blueberries to the vanilla whipped cream allowing it flow through the mix rather than give you a hard blueberry front and a ice cream/pie exhale. It's gotta swirl as ice cream was intended.
Cupcake Batter: some egg to give life to the meringue, Graham, and sugar cookie and also accent the three and a "gooey" effect to the blueberry strand and pie dough.
Madagascar/caramel: what ice cream doesn't contain some form or either of the two?
Cream: this has always been an interesting addition to any cream mix. It's cold whole milk cream and it provides a nice accent to all the creams being slapped together.
Super sweet: some sugar cause that's the way I like it and I'm not vaping to keep my coils pristine 24/7. Adjust to your liking.
Notes: I will say now, no you can not sub anything for anything or else it wouldn't be what it is as all things in mixing go. Sure it will come close, but not the same. You can however leave out some of .3s like cupcake batter and cream. I feel they are needed though to add that extra gooey effect you get in the middle if the vape.
Thank you for your time, support, and good vaping vibes.
