So a while back my girlfriend was at Walgreen's picking up some candy for us to bring to our friend's house to begin our Star Wars marathon when she noticed a new, peculiar candy in the isle. When she looked at the white box she saw what would soon become her equivalent to crack-cocaine: Toffifay. I'm not even exaggerating in the slightest when I say that she always has a box on her at all times.
So what is Toffifay? Essentially, you have a whole hazelnut coated in a thin layer of caramel which is then coated in a milk chocolate/nutella-like coating. Its pretty damn good and it makes sense why she has become addicted to this shit.
Long story short she's probably spent over $300 on this candy in the last month alone and I needed to break that habit. So I came up with this recipe to HOPEFULLY ensure that she doesn't go bankrupt over a fucking hazelnut candy.
FA Hazel Grove, FW Hazelnut - These two make the basis for our hazelnut as well as make our semi-nutella chocolate cream. FW Hazelnut is the star of the show because when you bite into the candy you immediately taste the whole hazelnut in the center. It is used at 2.5% to withstand the creams that come into play, but at that high of a percentage it can start to almost taste like a sweet hazelnut and the real deal is an almost bitter hazelnut. This is where FA Hazel Grove comes in, at just a half a percent it helps in making the whole hazelnut slightly bitter and more authentic. These two concentrates also help in mixing with TPA DCC to give it that "nutella" impression.
FA Carmel, TPA Bavarian Cream - FA Carmel is used to give us that slight impression of caramel that is present in the real deal. There isn't much caramel in the actual candy, so 1.5% was enough for it to be noticeable but to also have it stay at the bottom of the food chain in this recipe. TPA Bav. Cream is used to make the caramel more smooth and add some mouth feel while also working with TPA DCC to make it more of a milky chocolate and not just chocolate syrup.
TPA Double Chocolate (Clear), CAP Vanilla Whipped Cream - TPA DCC is obviously the base of our chocolate coating. As stated earlier, the actual coating is almost like a hybrid of nutella and regular milk chocolate, so when mixed with the hazelnuts and bav. cream, it helps us achieve that strange hybrid. CAP VWC is used to add some mouthfeel and boost the milk chocolate aspect of the chocolate coating.
Sweetener is used at .5% simply because my girlfriend has a MAJOR sweet tooth. For me, I like it at only .25% but I also vape it without sweetener as the FA Carmel lends some sweetness to the recipe as well as TPA DCC.
So there you have it folks; a recipe representing the candy that has made my girlfriend consume approximately 1,300 calories a day in candy alone! I hope you guys enjoy and remember,
Stay sexy folks ;)
One of my greatest pleasures in life is Star Wars. I grew up watching the original trilogy on VHS with my father and even broke my arm after falling while dueling him with those Target/WalMart lightsabers. Star Wars has been one of my greatest influences in my life. If a moisture farmer can go on to be a bad-ass Jedi and save the galaxy, what can I do?
Anyways, my favorite movie is The Empire Strikes Back and my favorite scene from that movie is obviously the Vader and Luke fight on Cloud City from the planet, Bespin. When I was a kid, I thought that Cloud City was a real place, (as a childish mind would make you believe) and I always wanted to visit there. Obviously, as I grew up, I learned that Bespin is a planet of fiction and my dreams were ultimately destroyed. However, I learned that in the movie, Cloud City is actually a large painting with the actors digitally placed in the scene. Mind=blown.
I've always loved the colors in the painting and love the atmosphere it brings to the movie. So in preparation for The Last Jedi, I have created a recipe that I believe perfectly captures what I feel when I think of Cloud City.
With this recipe, I set out to make a Toasted Vanilla Marshmallow. Perhaps people are tired of marshmallow vapes or believe that it is a novice profile geared towards those who are just getting into DiY, but this is my recipe so I don't give a fuck.
I set out to create a recipe that gave you a dense, chewy marshmallow with a nice vanilla accent that made you feel warm in the upcoming winter. So I worked on this recipe with some new (to me) concentrates and I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome. Makes me feel like I'm up in the clouds.
TPA Toasted Marshmallow and TPA Marshmallow - These two concentrates combine to give us our marshmallow base. TM is the main note of the recipe and it brings a decent marshmallow flavor with some light toasted notes. One of my biggest gripes with this concentrate is that it almost has no mouthfeel whatsoever, it has SOME, but not enough for what we are trying to achieve. At too high of a %, TM can bring some nutty notes and I didn't want those to be present in the recipe, so I opted to go for 3% as a starting point. Marshmallow does what you'd think it would do: add some more marshmallow flavor and helps in boosting that mouthfeel that we are trying to achieve. With these two concentrates, I had my marshmallow base.
CAP Sugar Cookie - we all know why this one is here: "chewy" texture, sweetness, helps with the bakery aspect of the recipe. Keeping it at a low % gives us what we need without overpowering the entire profile.
TPA Bavarian Cream - to me, this concentrate almost has a "dark vanilla" flavor to it, so it is used here to add some vanilla while also adding some toasted aspects to the profile. Keeping it at a low % allows this one to be a SnV as well as not taking over the marshmallow aspect.
TPA VBIC - this is one of my favorite concentrates and I utilize it here just to add some vanilla flavor. 1% was all that was needed to add that flavor without turning this recipe into a weird mess. Can substitute for CAP but I'd suggest bumping up to 1.5%
INW Shisha Vanilla - so this is my first recipe in which I've utilized this concentrate. I can't believe it took me this long to pick this one up because this is such a delicious and versatile flavoring. This goes well with ANY creamy/bakery recipe you are trying to achieve. When I twisted the cap off, I immediately knew this would work well with my marshmallows; it almost smells like a marshmallow just by itself. Enough rambling, this is used to boost the vanilla flavor and I believe is crucial to the recipe.
INW Creme Brulee - this is a weird flavoring and a potent one too. Initially I had solo'd this flavor at 2% and tasted something similar to a burnt clearomizer coil from back in the day. Yuck. At 1%, I got a light custard with some burnt sugar on the exhale. Yum. At .5%, I got a slightly "burnt" flavor with some light vanilla. Honestly in this recipe I don't use it for its "egginess" or vanilla components, but more for its burnt sugar aspects. When vaping this recipe without the flavoring, I felt that it wasn't "toasted enough" and almost released it as-is, but when I received this concentrate it literally completed the recipe. You can leave this flavoring out as I know there are folks out there who just CAN NOT use this flavoring, but I would highly suggest mixing with it. You won't regret it.
Sweetener is weird on this one. Some days I like it with .25% just to make it I guess more authentic, but honestly I think it is even better without any. The sweetener masks some of those toasted notes that I have implemented into the mix and I find myself vaping this recipe without sweetener nine times out of ten.
So there we have it, folks. I've been working on this recipe for almost two months now and have just recently deemed it worthy of posting to the website because of the addition of the Creme Brulee. This is a fantastic SnV, if you can hold off until 5 days, the creamy concentrates meld into the marshmallow base a bit more and its like you are taking a bite out of those golden clouds from Cloud City. But hey, I can't even make it that far half of the time.
I think this recipe is perfect as-is, I've worked on it for a long time and am pleased with where it is right now. But if you think you can make it better, I'll be more than happy to vape your adaptation.
I hope you guys enjoy this recipe as much as I do, may the force be with you. Always.
Sometimes Park decides he's tired of vaping deserts and that he wants to do fruits instead. Most of the time they suck dick. This isn't one of those times.
I present to you the Malibu Driver. A Malibu Driver is an alcoholic beverage insisting of two parts orange juice and one part Malibu rum. I have never had a MD before, but I do like me some good ol' vitamin C and Malibu gets along well with me on occasion, so it sounded like a pretty good cocktail. Why not put it in vape form?
Orange Juice - CAP Sweet Tangerine, TPA Orange Cream and FA Mandarin: these three combine to make our orange juice base. The Orange Cream more or less tastes like rind ( as noted by @Vurve ) and is by far the most realistic so that flavor creates our base. Sweet Tangerine is a very vibrant and delicious orange flavor, just a tad too "Orange Tic Tac" at higher percentages. FA Mandarin helps blend the two together and almost adds some orange zest to further the realism.
Malibu Rum - FA Coco', TPA Coconut Candy and FA Jamaican Rum: Jamaican Rum is the head honcho being that this is a rum recipe. At 3% it was a little too overpowering for me so I dropped it to 2% and have been digging it right there. FA Coco' to me tastes like coconut milk and is a very authentic coconut flavor. At 2%, it's strong enough to be present but still plays nicely with the rum. TPA Coconut Candy is VERY easy to fuck up with. At too high of a percentage it makes your juice taste like sun tan lotion, but at .5% it just helps to boost the coconut aspect a tad.
Koolada is optional, no one likes a warm cocktail so it is suggested. I'm waiting on some WS-23 to arrive and maybe that would work well with this recipe also.
Sweetener is always subjective, but orange juice is slightly sweet as is Malibu, so .25% works well for me. Feel free to leave this out.
And there you folks have it, a fruity (?) recipe that Parkus actually can vape on for more than a few minutes. Mix this up and let me know what you guys think.
What's up guys, I'm back at it again with a remix of my good buddy @Highwind's Smokin' Banana. His recipe was the one that introduced me to tobaccos and it is honestly a simple banger of a recipe. If you haven't mixed his recipe up yet I highly suggest that you do.
Highwind and I were discussing on things that could be done to improve the recipe or even take it in another direction. In his description, he mentioned the use of Yellow Cake to turn this into more like a banana bread recipe and I thought to myself "hey, I could do that!" So I did.
TPA Banana Cream and LA Banana Cream - these two banana flavors give us our banana portion of the mix. I like my banana bread with sliced bananas thrown in so these two flavorings in tandem give us enough banana flavor to contribute to the bread, as well as standing out as to act like sliced bananas inside the bread.
FW Butterscotch Ripple, FW Cake (Yellow), FA Carmel and TPA RY4 Double - these make us the actual bread portion of the mix. Yellow Cake is our base, Butterscotch Ripple acts as those swirls that one would get inside the bread, Carmel is used to boost the butterscotch note and add sweetness and RY4 Double is used to give us that "smoky" flavor, as well as add upon the caramel/Butterscotch notes.
FA Almond - I like my banana bread with chopped almonds thrown into the batter before it is baked. At .75%, it simulates that experience and you almost have to search for the almond.
TPA Double Chocolate (Clear) - I don't know about you guys, but my mom always used to too our banana bread with some chocolate syrup as it was still warm before serving it to me as a kid. You could totally leave this out if you want to, just it reminds me of my childhood.
TFA Vanilla Swirl - Highwind used this in his recipe and I believe it just helps blend everything together while adding a nice smoothness to the mix.
And there you guys have it: a way more complex version of my buddy's super simple mix. Be sure to check out Highwind's recipe! This guy is good to go right out the gate, but I suggest a week steep just to let the bananas settle down a bit and for everything to really meld together.
Subs - you could totally substitute yellow cake for the JF version, just I still have about 2 ounces of FW left so gotta get rid of it somehow 🤔 Also you can leave out the DCC as I said, I just like it cause that's how my momma used to make it.
ASMR - A Strawmallow Remix
What's going on folks, I'm at it again bringing my first ever remix to the table. I follow a lot of vape pages on Instagram and for the past few weeks I've been seeing a shit ton of posts about this eliquid called Strawmallow. Funny enough, the company who manufactures the liquid doesn't even have a website that you can purchase it from, so I have never tried it. However, on their instagram page they describe the juice as a "light, fluffy dessert jam packed with sweet, ripe strawberries!" So I thought, "what the hell I'll make my own." So here we go, A Strawmallow Remix!
The Marshmallow -
TPA Bav. Cream, TPA Marshmallow, FA Meringue and CAP VCv1 - so if you haven't guessed by now, this isn't a very complex mix. TPA Marshmallow is the star of the show and at 6% it stands up against the rest of the flavors. FA Meringue adds mouthfeel. TPA Bav. Cream and CAP VCv1 add body to the marshmallow and almost a toasted sensation to the mix.
TFA Strawberry Ripe is pretty much a dead giveaway as per the description. At 3% the strawberry it noticeable but doesn't take away from the marshmallow.
Sweetener is always subjective, but it is a marshmallow so they tend to be sweet.
This is obviously an easy mix and funny enoug this is the most authentic that I had mixed up out of my 5+ failed attempts. I was using a shit ton of flavors in my previous mixes, trying to make the marshmallow chewy and using multiple strawberries. It was infuriating. But then I remembered Occam's Razor and landed with the most authentic of them all.
SNV approved, but will probably benefit from a week steep.
Photo cred goes to @buildlab on Instagram.
Welp, I finally did it, I made a summer-like recipe that I actually quite enjoy. This is a recipe I've been working on since late April and is loosely based off of SVRF's Satisfying. However, I wouldn't go as far as to call this a remix because it's almost a totally different profile. This is a chilled class of green tea with a squeeze of lemon and a hint of raspberry. Originally, I had wanted to make a clone/remix of Satisfying by SVRF, but it soon developed into a mix entirely in of its own. Prepare to be satisfied.
FE Green Tea - through many bogus testing of different green teas from various vendors, I came back to this bottle from Flavor Express I had bought a while ago from trying Exclusive Girl's GTKK. I use this at 1.5% to stay strong amongst the raspberries I use in the mix. At 1.5%, it holds itself strong without being too weak as to be overpowered by the raspberries.
INW Raspberry, TPA Raspberry Sweet - normally in my bakeries and dessert recipes, I will use Raspberry Sweet and INW Raspberry at a 2:1 ratio to have a nice raspberry syrup with slight authenticity. However, I wanted less sweetness and more authenticity in this recipe; almost like you have some muddled raspberries floating atop of the tea. At this ratio, it achieves exactly what I was looking for without overpowering the Green Tea.
FA Lemon Sicily - this plays two roles: it helps make the raspberries slightly more tart and I personally love my tea mixed with some lemon juice. At 1%, it is enough to boost the raspberries and be noticed throughout the recipe.
Koolada is used at .25% to "chill" the recipe without making it completely an iced drink. Koolada can be adjusted to your preference, or left out completely if you do choose.
Sweetener is always subjective.
This is 100% a SnV, although if you are sensitive to INW Raspberry or FE GT, letting the bottle sit overnight should take away some of that scratchy throat shit.
So there we have it. A recipe that, in my opinion, is better that the source material that inspired it. If you guys have been noticing me as of lately, you probably get that I don't really do fruits/summertime vapes, but this is definitely one that I am proud to have created and enjoy the absolute fuck out of. Please mix this up and let me know what you guys think!
What's going on folks, back at it again with another recipe for your taste buds. First off, shoutout to the homie Lilhop625 for bringing his negativity towards my previous recipe and bringing attention to it, much love fam 👊🏻 This recipe goes out to the homie Lilhop625! Without further adeu, Pink Season!
So Pink Season is an album by Filthy Frank and every single fucking time I watch Wayne's live mixing or any video he puts out I can't help but notice the resemblance lol. Anyways this recipe is my take on a strawberry milk vape. Yes, I know that this recipe has been beaten like a dead horse but strawberry and cream vapes are what kept me from going back to cigarettes. So I've been trying to create a strawberry cream that satisfies my needs and makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, (without thinking about Lilhop625😘). This recipe is supposed to resemble when you were a kid and put waaaaay too much strawberry syrup in your glass of milk and how fucking delicious it was. Anyways here's what I've come up with:
FA Cream Fresh, Meringue and TFA VBIC - I believe it was in a flavor talk video by Wayne in which he said a 2:1 ratio of Cream Fresh and Meringue create a good milk base so that's what I've done here. The addition of VBIC adds body to the milk without the heaviness and egginess of Vanilla Custard (even though I'll just about find ANY reason to throw VCv1 into a recipe).
FA Red Touch, INW Shisha Strawberry and TFA Strawberry Ripe - these obviously create the strawberry syrup that I want in this recipe, the Red Touch and Shisha Strawberry act as the sugary potion of the syrup while the Ripe Strawberry helps to add that lacking authenticity. (Honestly I just lined them up and did percentages as 1,2,3 and it seemed to workout 🤐).
FW Hazelnut - this is something that you can totally leave out of this recipe, I only use it because I feel that hazelnut and strawberry are better that beer and football.
Sweetener is always subjective.
That's pretty much it folks! This is SnV approved but I do believe that giving the recipe about 3 days will allow the creams to calm down and the hazelnut to meld better with the strawberries. Mix this up and lemme know what you think!
Psst.... - https://youtu.be/U6FIJjmX138
Prepare to vape My BBC! (My blueberry custard, that is).
What's going on y'all, Parkus Maximus the Third coming all over y'all again with another recipe! I know that for the majority of vapers and mixers out there that custards and bakeries are more of a fall/winter type vape but I'm one of those weird fucks that enjoys a nice thick custard year-round. So since I started DIY over a year ago, I found this clone of 13 Monkey's Congo Custard on ELR when I was a normie and didn't realize that all the good shit was on ATF. However, I really enjoyed that recipe and still vape it even to this day, (granted I no longer mix it with 3% sweetener anymore). Anyways, my father is like me and enjoys bakeries and shit like that year-round and wanted me to make him a variation of the Congo Custard so here is what I came up with!
FA Bilberry, FW Blueberry - this is what makes the blueberry portion of the mix. The FW blueberry provides the sweet blueberry that one would expect from this recipe but lacks in authenticity, so the FA bilberry helps provide that authentic blueberry taste.
CAP French Vanilla, Sweet Cream and VCv1 - these help to make a rich and deep vanilla custard. We all know why VCv1 is here so I don't need to explain that, but the sweet cream and French vanilla help to make the custard more deep.
Sweetener is always subjective.
Shake and vape approved but I believe this recipe will benefit from at least a 5 day steep.
So there you have it: My BBC! Honestly really enjoying this recipe so far and this is just a V1 so I will definitely be updating this recipe as it progresses. Please mix it up and let me know what you think, even if you think I'm crazy as fuck for making a custard recipe in the summer while everyone else is vaping their lemonades and watermelon shit.
Always been a big fan of custards. Always been a big fan of butterscotch. Always been a big fan of vanilla. This is the outcome of a dirty threesome on a hot summer night in the bed of an El Camino during a drought. I present to you: Custard Fucker.
Jokes aside, this is my attempt at a thick, creamy butterscotch custard with vanilla that lingers in the mouth afterwards. I honestly wasn't expecting much when I was putting this recipe together but I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome. Please try this out and let me know how you feel about it, onwards to the notes!
CAP VCv2, FA Custard, CAP Golden Butter and FA Meringue - These come together to bring the custard base. I wanted to make a more buttery custard for the base so that way the vanillas would really seem to pop and not just settle in with the base. CAP VCv2 is more buttery that the v1, and provides a decent mouth feel by itself. FA Custard is different because I feel like it has a hint of lemon to it, but at 1% the lemon doesn't intrude upon the rest of the recipe and just adds to the thickness. CAP Golden butter helps in making the custard more noticeably buttery and FA Meringue helps to add to that mouth feel.
FLV Butterscotch and FW Butterscotch Ripple - I wanted a nice butterscotch that was somewhere in between a hard candy and a gooey drizzle. FW Butterscotch Ripple was an obvious choice because in itself it is exactly what I am looking for. However, I felt as though it needed to be more pronounced without taking over the recipe entirely, so that is where FLV Butterscotch comes into play; it just helps to make the butterscotch aspect more present in the entire recipe.
CAP French Vanilla and FA Vanilla Tahity - These are the vanillas that I chose to incorporate in this recipe. Anytime I make a custard, I always use CAP French Vanilla due to it's richness and how well it works in custards; you can't go wrong with adding it to a custard. Like the butterscotch portion, I wanted to boost the vanilla and that is where FA Vanilla Tahity comes into play. At 1%, this helps accentuate the vanilla in the recipe without overpowering anything else.
Sweetener is subjective but I tend to have a sweet tooth.
And there it is! Mix it up and please let me know what you think!
