I've been vaping this all week . . . it was great off the shake and remains great and unchanged 5 days later. I'm an educator, so, coming off the break, I needed something for the ride to and from school. I had not had much time to try some of these new flavors and just went for it. I'm extremely pleased with how this has come out . . . smooth, thick, rich, sweet vanilla custard. This is a new take on an old classic . . . fluffy custards, buttery bakery notes, creamy cheesecake, and extra vanilla. I'm mixing up another 30 of this for the coming week! If you mix it . . . I hope you enjoy it!!!
An RY4 crossed with a very slight variation of eyemakepizza's Trinity Vanilla Ice Cream (https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/143364). When I think of Trinity, I can't help but imagine the pictures of the 1945 explosion from the atomic testing site Trinity, in Alamogordo . . . so, I made the ice cream sitting on top of the cone from an image of the explosion 0.016 seconds after detonation. Sweet, creamy, RY4 for your Christmas morning sweet-tooth.
This recipe exists because of Foment_life's spectacular pear trinity, as found in his recipe DAAPled Pears. The combination of FA Pear, TFA Pear, and FA Fuji is hands down the best, most realistic pear I've ever had in vape form. I'll repeat what I said in my review of DAAPled Pears: it is a smooth, sweet, crisp work of art.
I wanted to see what this pear trinity would do in a Placid-esque recipe (I assume everyone is aware of Adirondack's Placid . . .if not look it up). I combined the pear trinity with VT Persian Lime, WF Strawberry Gummy Candy, TFA Honeysuckle, and LA Cheesecake. I wanted a cream presence in this recipe and find LA Cheesecake to be a perfect neutral cream. It has a heavenly aroma and adds a full, creamy mouth-feel to this bright fruit/floral mix. It turns this into a creamy, sherbet-like version of Placid. I could also see this pear trinity working with VT Fizzy Sherbet and/or VT Yoghurt Drink.
Even if you don't mix this . . . please don't sleep on the beauty that Foment_life has created with DAAPled Pears.
A profile I've been working on since I started DIYing . . . blueberry oatmeal cookie. This has a lot of layering trying to get to that oatmeal cookie, and this is as close as I've come to hitting it.
The blueberry itself is a combo of FW Blueberry, WF Blueberry Jam, and FLV Jammy Berry . . . going for that close to cooked, jammed-up blueberry rather than ripe blueberry.
The cookie is the real beast here. The star of the show being, in my opinion, JF Cookie V2. It is, hands down, my favorite cookie. There are a lot of other moving parts here layered atop one another trying to reach oatmeal cookie heaven. 0.25% FLV Granola still shines through without dominating the mix like a higher percentage would . . . that stuff is a bully in a mix.
I know these overly-complex recipes are not everyone's cup of tea . . . but this has been such a long-sought-after pursuit. I felt compelled to share it. If you mix it, I hope you enjoy it!
A custardy RY4 to celebrate the end of upper 90 degree temps here in Tennessee. I flipped the percentages on the Hangsen Caramel Toffee and WF Caramel Popcorn and Peanuts from Alfred Pudding's 1 2 3 Cracker Jack . . . cranked the WF Vanilla Ruyan Custard all the way up and mixed in a little OOO Burnt Sugar with FA Custard Premium, to bring the smoky vanilla up to play nice with the heavy caramel note. A touch of FLV Sweet & Smokey with woody TFA Red Oak to help the tobacco play the back to the caramel/vanilla front.
Made for a pod system (the Innokin EQS pod system, to be exact). I wanted something woody and smoky with a heavy-handed pour of vanilla. The Ylang Ylang edges the vanillas in a spicy, floral direction, which meshes well with the Red Oak and sandalwood of Wood Spice. Black Fire adds the char. Vanilla Ruyan, also, helps bring this into the realm of a smoked vanilla essence. Butterscotch is there as deeper note underneath and to bring a level of richness to the table. Even with other devices charged and filled, I keep reaching back for this. It's a welcome change of pace. It's not really like anything else, it just is what it is . . . smoky, woody vanilla
Had to take a break from testing/mixing FA Tobaccos . . . so, I made this. A banana/coconut pudding RY4. The bones of this are the beautiful duo of coconuts in hashslingingslashur's Leche de Coco with 2 fantastic bananas (TFA Banana Nut Bread and Solub Arome's Banana Flambe), FA Bavarian Cream, and the underrated JF Cookie v2 making up the pudding. 2 RYs (JF RY4 Double and WF Vanilla Ruyan) along with FLV Smoked Butterscotch making up the RY4. Enjoy!
Since everyone seems to be dropping pineapple recipes . . . here's something I've been working on in anticipation of the Stranger Things season 3 release. A while ago, my wife made pancakes with pineapple rings in them, which led to the idea of waffles with pineapple. I've long been trying to find a decent pineapple upside down cake, to no avail. Setting that aside (again), I turned my attention to this Stranger Things inspired concoction . . . Upside Down pineapple waffles. LB Belgian Waffle, JF Cookie, and AP to get that crispy, maple waffle. FW Butter Pecan and Sweetener to go with that JF Cookie to make up the buttery, nutty syrup. CAP Golden Pineapple and WF Pineapple Candy for the sweetened cooked pineapple rings. Finally, topped off with a dollop of CAP Vanilla Whipped Cream.
Let me start off by saying I've never had Smax Pony on Acid. This is what I imagine the flavor to be like when reading the profile. This is candied strawberries, raspberries, and pineapples mixed with a citrus, vanilla cream.
I'm enjoying this quite a bit fresh . . . it's tart, sweet, and creamy.
America's Horse with No Name has nothing to do with this mix other than the title. If I had to nail down a musical inspiration for this it would be Oh Sees - Smote Reverser
