Alright here we go. Cap double chocolate V2 (thanks folkart) turned out to be a pretty damn good chocolate. The only issue is a little bit of a lingering fakeness on the tail end. So the recipe was pretty much just finding a way to fix that. Rf cookies and cream does a good job overpowering the tail end of it with a somewhat thin authentic chocolate finish.
So next I just set out to thicken that chocolate and enhance the overall full body richness with some dairy and vt devon cream is basically T H E B E S T concentrate to do that job. It is THE chocolate enhancer.
After mixing that up as my control I split it into smaller bottles cause it still needed something to really set it off. One of my batches had sa banana flambe in it where I used fw yogurt to make the banana taste more authentic. I loved what it ended up doing to the chocolate so I tried taking the banana out for curiosity's sake. Sure enough that was the money. I don't know why or how but it really brings out that wonderful trashy golden arches shake kind of authenticity. Also I don't have sweetener in the recipe but I absolutely DO RECOMMEND YOU ADD SWEETENER if you want the authentic experience.
Feel free to throw things on top of it like banana, mint, vanilla, strawberry, or peanut butter. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Special thanks to mlNikon (emily) and method01 for testing the recipe with me and Alfred pudding for providing some great feedback!
The recipe for my Chefs Flavours one shot. Sorry I've been a bit late releasing these! As per the link: https://chefsflavours.co.uk/karl-custard-30ml-shyndo/ this is pistachio with aromatic ruyan custard and a spicy vanilla brown sugar finish. Basically my own loveletter to the pistachio ry4 profile just done a little differently. Using such a large amount of tpa pistachio on top of brown sugar can be quite sharp. Usually you would use your typical ry4 to force mute this a bit but WF vanilla Ruyan Custard lacks the "ethyl maltol mixing everything together" quality. So we use heaps of vanilla swirl to calm down the sharp edges and fill out the volume a bit. The star to me is actually the WF vanilla ruyan custard in that it's the only ry4 I've had that has such a distinctive "layer" to it. It stands out on its own and in its own place in the vape where something like tpa ry4 double would just BE the whole vape in combination with whatever flavors you use.
A delightfully Dark and Rich vape with cherry chocolate nuances and a touch of chewing tobacco layered on a classic tobacco pairing.
Tatanka is interesting as hell and quite a polarizing flavor. I couldn't find a tobacco that paired better with cherry or chocolate in the entire flavorah line. Layered on top of a classic combination of cured and red burley it really shines. The red burley really adds a touch of nuttiness and wonderful tobacco body and the cured just goes hand in hand with it.
Cherry Extract is surprisingly light at 3 percent and really helps brighten up an otherwise dark and rich vape. It can also really help those chewing tobacco notes from Tatanka pop and keep them interesting. That touch of cherry also reminds me of that lovely red fruit note you get from some of the really nice chocolates like valrhona.
Chocolate Deutsch lends an all-encompassing dark rich chocolatey body for everything to settle into, turning this into a lovely vape to have with your morning coffee. It really also helps dry out the vape a bit and keep it in that lovely tobacco realm. Some people get a light coconut from this flavor, I think the cherry and tatanka mask it quite nicely making this more of a rich dry chocolate back note with a slight hint of riesen.
Thank you FEAR and Graham for testing it for me and telling me to release it ASAP, and LonesomeRhodesTN Ckemist and Chemical Burn Victim for keeping it real in the tobacco world.
Losing sucks. But losing to someone you respect and forming a friendship out of it isn't such a bad thing. This is my tribute to Concrete River: The man, the myth, the mustache. I set out two months ago to make something delicious that didn't taste like anything in existence. This is the concrete river way and also my penance. I don't think any singular recipe has given me as much trouble as this one. I had to don my Concrete River skinsuit and it took over two months of pivoting, tweeking, and crying in defeat. I have a newfound respect for the Concrete River mixing style.
A popular dessert in Thai Restaurants. Creamy coconut infused sticky rice with ripe slices of juicy mango.
FE sweet rice is the star of the show here and the main note of the recipe. It fades a little so we use it quite high at 5 percent.
FA cream fresh bridges the gap between our coconuts and our rice and makes the mix cohesive. It also adds a pleasing tropical dairy note on its own.
FA coco and TPA coconut candy blend in with our rice and infuse it with coconut goodness. This might look high for the coconut but it actually ends up pretty balanced throughout.
Flv mango is the mango we use here because it is the only one that will not blend into the middle of the mix or add a musky note. We use it quite low for flv without using CAP sweet alongside it because we want the rice to remain the star and the mango to be balanced alongside it when the rice fades a little in the next couple of days. You will notice the more you vape this the more prevalent the mango becomes.
Cap super sweet actually has a job here and it's to tone down the slightly bitter note you get at the end of the sweet rice exhale. This is something unique to sweet rice and this amount seems to mask it quite nicely.
This is not a recipe to throw in your steep cabinet. Great as a shake and vape.
Shoutout to ID10T, Matthew Kocanda, Rageisalotofwork, and my boy J E R R Y!
FA Carmel aka Caramel is used quite high. This is our top note and after testing it at multiple percentages all I can say is it just works at 2 percent. It just freaking works. Gives a nice soft caramel flavor reminiscent of brown butter to the mix. 2 percent might seem high to most but I just ask them to try it.
Cap Vanilla Custard is what really makes this ice cream and not gelato. This concentrate increases our steep time but also adds fresh yolks tempered in sugar lending a nice richness that is sorely needed in thick French ice cream.
INW Shisha Vanilla adds sweetness; a nice complex and wonderful vanilla that compliments our caramel and brings the mix to a whole new level.
HS French Vanilla Ice Cream is our soft slow-cooked buttery note with a nice slightly cold ice cream flavor. It has unparalleled richness so we must use it low. This also increases our steep time but it's worth it.
FLV Cream works as an emulsifier for the creams and a nice soft background creamy note that doesn't mute or lower our flavor ceiling. Truly an amazing concentrate. Also, I can't stress enough how well this and fresh cream work together.
FA Cream Fresh is the dairy brother of flv cream, This is our half and half unpasteurized and a necessary ingredient in our ice cream.

TRY IT! IT'S FUCKING FIRE!!!
What started as a cherry blossom macaron quickly turned into something else. The original mix was a bit lighter in flavor but I ended up liking certain parts of the vape so much I wanted to emphasize them. The main aspect of this is a certain in your face PINK flavor. There is also an almost cereal note with a bit of crunchberries in there.
TPA cherry blossom and CAP hibiscus blend together to create a sweet, airy, cherry pink floral note with a bit of syrup on top.
FA almond adds body to this pink note and lends it's own cherry note through our own minds associating almond extract with cherries. My best example of this phenomena is eating a big pint of ben and jerry's cherry garcia. This stuff is loaded with almond extract.
FA meringue adds a powdered sugar note, body, and acts as a condenser to the whole mix.
FA cookie adds a bit of texture and keeps the mix from being too one-note.
Cap Butter Cream works really well here, it actually has this unique taste when combined with meringue where it creates an almost delectable creamy filling and separates from the powdered sugar.
The suggested steep time brings out complexity but this mix is good day 1 for me.
