I love grape. I've tried to make a good grape countless times and it just never worked. I wanted a jolly rancher kind of grape and nothing quite matched that level of purple... This, however... This is purple. The WF Grape Candy (Sour) is the magical flavor here. This is why my other attempts didn't work... If you like a good grape vape that's nowhere near natural, try this. Also - smell it. It's childhood. 💜
Sweetener is at your discretion. I added 0.5 SS
This assignment is the best one so far, IMO. It's been really cool to see everyone's interpretations. Going back to basics doesn't get enough credit...
Anyway, this is just a simple cherry limeade. I tried a few different limes here, but I found Cap Lemon Lime to work the best. (FA Lime Tahity Cold Pressed may be a tad more authentic, but Cap is still better)
If Shirley Temple had a cousin from SoCal, this would be it. I loved Shirley Temples as a kid. Hell, I still do. This reminds me of a tropical version of that. Like, a tropical syrup mixed with sprite. There's a lot going on in here, but all of the flavors blend together to make an obviously tropical, if non-descript, soda.
The lemon lime soda is definitely adjustable, depending on how much you want. I may take it up to 3%, but 2.5 seems good right now. If I could change one thing, I'd give this a Pineapple note because I love pineapple, but I don't think WF has the right one just yet. Once they come out with it though, I'll have a 2.0 up ;)

I decided to try my hand at a blueberry waffle after being inspired by @Deftohms' Blueberry Eggo recipe. (Check it out. It's a great recipe by a great mixer!) For some strange reason, I get a clear coffee note from SSA Crisp Waffle, even though I hear it works wonders with LB. Because of that, I needed to try another combo for the waffle.
I settled on LB Belgian Waffle + JF Churro.
JF Churro is there at 1% just to give some crispiness to the edges. Initially, I get a faint cinnamon sugar, but it fades out with the steep.
I guess you can say FLV Blueberry Muffin is part of the waffle base too, because it's used here to make this a clearly baked in blueberry, not just a waffle topped with blueberries. This flavor does really well at giving off that cooked blueberry vibe.
The rest of the recipe is pretty self-explanatory. VT Butter Base, because ... It's a waffle. What monster doesn't put butter on waffles?! VT Blueberry Jam because baked in blueberry isn't enough. OOO Whipped Cream because why not?
Sweeten at your own discretion, but I think FW is the best sweetener to use in this instance.
Please feel free to leave any feedback at all, good or bad! Thanks! 😊
Steep at least a week. It's not horrible off the shake, but it gets a lot better with age.
After 8 or 9 attempts at this profile, I finally feel like I have something worth sharing with this recipe. It's not perfect by any means, but I think I'm going in the right direction here...
I used VT Frozen Pineapple Yoghurt more for the yogurt qualities it has, because at 3%, I don't feel that the pineapple is very strong.
NR Pineapple Sherbet is a GREAT flavor. It's unmistakably fresh pineapple. I'm not sure about the sherbet part - it may very well be present, but my palate is shit, so I probably just can't detect it.
MB Funky Pineapple & SC Pineapple are in here to make the pineapple SUPER effin pineappley. Feel free to swap SC with INW. I didn't because I feel like INW fades quickly, but I may try it in another version to see if it makes a difference.
VT Yoghurt Drink, aside from being a great flavor, adds some more yogurty body and the lemon note kind of acts as a bridge. Thanks @MaxSavage for that tip. :D
Also - I added 1 drop of SS & 0.5% FLV sweetness, but you do you. PLEASE feel free to leave ANY feedback, good or bad. I'm still learning, so it can only help!
This is a simple grape candy. Grape is one of my white whales. For a single flavor, it's not all that easy to get right. FLV Grape is very bright and punchy and would make it into a grape candy, all flavorah challenge or not. I might adjust the candy roll, but I'm not sure yet. Please feel free to leave any feedback :)
