During the holidays starbuks has a cranberry bliss bar that I just love. it is a sweet soft thick cookie base with sweet candid cranberries and chalky white chocolate chips cover in the thick sweet vanilla cream cheese icing; i it is VERY VERY sweet. - this is my take on it
On the inhale you get the creamy vanilla icing top notes that transitions to the cranberry and finishes with a full buttery bakery and touch of tartness. This was tested on a reload RDA at 65 watts in a .14 ohm alien coil `
The bakery bar base is more of soft thick cookie then a a cake - so the combination of yellow cake, sugar cookie and cookie butter do the trick along with the light bakery note from the cobbler
Vanilla custard cheese cake when combined with VT sweet cream gives me a vanilla cream cheese icing
This bar has chunks of white chocolate in it which is hard to get to stand out as a noticeable note in this mix but it is there on the top
NOTE if you want more of a bright cranberry note feel free to use FLV cranberry instead of sweet current but the the sweet currant adds a nice tart note that I wanted along with that sweetness to add to the candy aspect of cranberry from cobbler
Made for fresh 03 Saturday show - the challenge is to make an ADV using one flavor line - i choose Wonder flavors line - and a variation of a strawberry cream mix
NOTE LB strawberry Cheese cake is a MARKER for WF strawberry Cheesecake which is new WF flavor not listed in the ALL the flavors
WF strawberry Cheesecake is a great balance of strawberry and cheesecake and does not really need a lot of help taking it to the 4% on its own - There is not a lot of crust but it is noted on the back end, of the shake the strawberry is very front end and takes a steep for the cheesecake to come forward.
You get the bright syrupy strawberry on the front that transitions to the creamy cheesecake with a buttery bakery finish
So watching the Great British Bake off - one of the challenges was to make a lemon treacle tart . Which is basically LOTS of golden syrup , bread crumbs, butter, egg yolks, a little lemon juice and zest and in a tart crust
I was intrigued and wanted to try it so we made one and I am in love!! Golden syrup is a major ingredient for this tart and it is not available in the US - so amazon to the rescue . One recipe I found called for a 1 1/2 LBS of golden syrup. Hence the name for the recipe
WF Lemon custard is a light lemon, with a touch of vanilla and a lovely silky custard mouth feel, the body fills out as it steeps. The soft mouth feel is just lovely . The lemon is a base to mid note so if you really want LEMON you will need to add to it
The combination of WF lemon custard and Lemon sour work well for lemon notes in this mix the lemon custard is a mild and sits in the front and middle of this mix with a the lemon sour bringing a lemon zesty at the exhale.
WF Pineapple candy is used low here to bring some of the citrus sweetness and support the curd like texture of the mix
Sugar cookie and pudding base are used to bring this mix together with the golden syrup and add some bakery texture . Pudding base has a starch like body that does not have any additional spice notes. Sugar cookie fills in this mix and add some texture.
Pie crust by OOO is a really nice simple plain pie crust that works on its own with out much support and is subtle in the mix at the exhale
Note: I do think that FA custard could be used here instead of WF lemon custard as it does have a light lemon note - but the silky mouth feel of this WF lemon custard is lovely and works really well . This is a Make your teeth hurt dessert so I did add .50% of Cap super sweet to mine - but it is not needed
made for fresh03 Saturday show highlighting Wf flapper pie - which is a thick almost custard like filling with some meringue topping and a darker bakery graham finish . This is an incredibly versatile flavor that just works with so many mixes . You can use simply to fill in the middle of mix and add body and pull flavors together. I would not say it emulsifies flavors but does seem to smooth out edges
This mix is a full sweet cream on the inhale that transitions to a caramel chocolate filling and ends with a darker chocolate crust on the finish https://youtu.be/TAatuB5k4mw
Tested on a reload RDA at 65 watts with a .16 alien coil
The WF Flapper pie pulls this whole mix together by providing the primary thick cream base with some darker graham notes.
The combination of WF Butter pecan pie and VT Chocolate Mousse work really well to create the thick sweet caramel chocolate center
WF chocolate crust and FLV cream cookies create the dark Oreo like cookie crust ( NOTE if you have real flavors cookie and cream you can sub that for FLV I actually prefer it but now that the real flavors will only be sold in Canada I did not want to use it )
This is a sweet mix but if you want to add sweetener I would recommend .5 of FLv sweetness
Roasted pecan had a nice coffee caramel roasted note that is supported a bit by the coffee milk froth that has a vanilla top note with light cinnamon almond finish mixed for fresh 03 Saturday show
while there is no actual coffee flavor here the roasted pecan does give a slight roasted coffee note that is really pleasant but the combination of the vanilla, cinnamon and almond really shine in this mix Add sweetner to your liking - although the marzipan adds some inherit sweetness
A creamy dark chocolate with a light cinnamon and orange note made for fresh 03 Saturday show. The mix is based of this recipe
NOTE if you like a sweeter hot chocolate feel free to add .5 of CAP super sweet
Made for Fresh03 Saturday show - we were challenged to make a "Fair - ified" mix and use more then 5 flavors to create a profile (as a tribute to the juice fairy Jennifer Winstead) . I went after a little Debbie's oatmeal cream pie mix with some raisins and light cinnamon . https://youtu.be/2YQHvHRczNs
This was tested at 60 watts on a reaload S - off the shake it is a full body, sweet cream vanilla mix with some light oat notes on the back - as this steeps the bakery notes, and raisin notes will come forward a bit more and fill out
for the cream I wanted that super sweet make your teeth hurt cream filling So FLV frosting, and WF gooeey marshmallow work perfect for that - along with cream filling ad vanilla cream extra for some additional body
Sadly there really is not a solid oatmeal flavor that I have come across - but the combination of oatmeal cookie RF and Oats and cream does have an oat note on the finish The body of the cookie needed to be filled out so Sugar cookie , FA cookie support the body
Baker touch adds some body along with some cinnamon and brown sugar notes
Red dates is a brighter then a cooked raisin so the addition of fig helps to darken it a bit - along with some molasses
A simplified version of this could be achieved with RF Oatmeal cookie, WF Oats and cream, WF buttercream frosting, CAP sugar cookie and LB bakers touch
This mix is based on a fall cocktail I recently came across https://jellytoastblog.com/cranberry-apple-cider-cocktail/ that looked really tasty for this time of year. I did not want a darker cider with alot of heavy spice like a mulled cider. I wanted a brighter crisp apple forward cocktail which I think I was able to achieve here .
Most cider flavors are a darker apple note often with spices - which I really did not want ; so the combination of INW two apples and WF Thai apple create a really bright crisp full apple flavor. Molinberry apple cider is a a lighter brighter cider which worked as the predominate cider note int his mix . The mint is light for me me and adds a bit of coolness in this mix, and is less noticeable as it steeps but I happen to enjoy that cooling in this mix
The sweet citrus of the blood orange and the tartness of the cranberry are nice accents notes to this predominate apple forward mix
The geingerale and golden syrup create some darker sweet ginger base notes for this mix with out distracting too much for the brightness of the mix.
Since this is based on a vodka cocktail I used VT russian vodka for the booze top note
SWEETNER: I added .5% of cap to help lift the apple notes a bit
I was watching the great british baking show and one of the contestants made an Indian barfi. The main ingredients of plain barfis include condensed milk and sugar A few of the famous varieties of barfi include besan barfi (made with gram flour), kaaju barfi (made with cashews), pista barfi (made with ground pistachios), and sing barfi (made with peanuts).
The ingredients are cooked in a vessel until the mixture solidifies.
Based on this desert I came up the combination of rose and pistachio, which is fairly popular pairing.
On the inhale you get a sweet milky creamy coconut note that transitions to a nutty light rose finish . It is unique and really lovely. tested on a reload RDA at 65 watts on a .16 alien coil
The combination of oak milk and condensed milk is just lovley. Iit is full creamy sweet and slightly nutty and almost woody.
Pistachio note is there at the middle and exhale and is made more noticeable by the oak note of the oak milk
The coconut and Thai rice seem to fill in the middle nicely here and just adds some wonder full fullness and body to the profile with out distracting form the pistachio and rose profile to much
This is fairly sweet on its own so does not really need sweetner - although touch of cap super sweet seem to get the rose to sit a bit more on top
