As a kid I loved the Pine/Lime Splice Ice Cream and wanted to try and re-create the flavour in an e-liquid. I have put together my 1st version of this classic ice-cream and the vape gods must have been looking down on me as it has come out extremely close to the flavour profile I was looking for.
The ice-cream base is comprised of CAP Vanilla Bean Ice Cream, FA Vienna Cream, FA Cream Fresh. This combination seems to work extremely well for a thick and rich ice-cream profile. I do prefer the CAP VBIC over the TFA as I am one of many who get a 'pepper' taste from the TPA version.
The Pineapple component is pretty simple with CAP Golden Pineapple as it's a sweet candy type pineapple flavour which works so well with any sweet or candy profile.
The lime part of the recipe I have decided on FLV Lime. I have tried other lime flavourings and nothing works as well as this one. It is there at only 0.7%, although I went by drops as this is a super strong concentrate. I used 4 drops in 30ml. This is a beautiful lime flavour that works well as both an authentic lime as well as a candy lime.
To sweeten things up just a touch I've used a small amount of CAP Super Sweet which rounds things out nicely in this recipe. I wouldn't personally go higher than the 0.4% but that is more of a personal taste rather than a rule.
I have only let this one steep overnight so far, so after a longer steep things might change and tweaks may be made, but so far this is extremely promising.
If you try this one out and have any thoughts or suggestions please feel free to comment them. I would love to hear your thoughts on this.
**** After testing the flavour after a few days of steeping I'm thinking the Golden Pineapple needs to come up a bit in the mix to around 6% or the FLV Lime needs to come down to 0.5%, I will make another mix once this has done 2 weeks of steeping and work out where the recipe needs to go ****
