I was going for a big bowl of strawberries with a sugar syrup.
Strawberries, Strawberry gummy candy to add a contrasting candy strawberry, and Glazed Strawberries to add a little more depth and help to the sugar syrup note. I also wanted to add a little more strawberry here. I started with HC Fresh Strawberry, but hearing that it had been discontinued, I wanted to swap it out. I still prefer HC for this recipe, I'll just have to horde what's left of my stock. INW Shisha does a good job, but really almost any strawberry I think can work here as long as it has a little punch to it. I'll probably try some other strawberries in the future, but here it is as it stands.
Forest Fruits and Golden Pineapple to add some fruit depth.
Golden Syrup and Vanilla Swirl to round out the syrup and to help in blending and mouth feel.
I was going for a orange mango juice, but the Multivitamin and the Mango Indian Special do an interesting dance here. They play off each other in a way I didn't expect. This is straight up grabbing a spoonful of powdered orange mango and putting into your mouth.
The combo of Royal Orange Juice and Tanger (mandarin) provide a bump to the orange note in the Multivitamin.
The Honey Peach is to give the whole thing a little depth.
Cap that off with a little Super Sweet and this is pretty groovy powdered orange mango. I dig it.
Another mind vision has shown me the way. . . . the way to a Brown Sugar Sesame Waffle! Huzzah!
The combo of Crisp Waffle and Belgian Waffle make a perfect waffle on my palate. Totally borrowed this combo from Deftohms.
The Sesame Candy and Sesame Sweets add a great sesame layer to complement the LB Belgian Waffle.
Finish up with some Brown Sugar and Caramel for a little depth and dark caramel layer.
Top off with Super Sweet and I freakin' love this. Light waffle sweetness and sesame finish.
I'm not sure what this is. . . I started to make like a butterscotch latte, but this turned out a little denser than that. A Coffee Butterscotch creme that you'd find at the center of a chocolate truffle. Maybe similar to some kind of soft caramel.
The SSA Cappuccino Coffee is a great coffee flavor. Well balanced but super dark.
The VT English Toffee and FLV Smoked Butterscotch is dynamite! A rich and layered butterscotch flavor that is strong but blends into this.
The FA Milk and WF Smooth Cappuccino Cream round out everything and helping the coffee and butterscotch flavors to meld together.
A little FW Sweetener to bump everything and help with the creams. I really like this and it really needs a steep. At least 10 days.
I mostly use a 28mm dual coil RDA on a stacked 21700. .3 ohms.
Another grapefruit vision from a candy I had recently. A grapefruit Hi-Chew. I wanted a distinct mouth feel with a balance between creamy vanilla and grapefruit.
I lack a lot of taffy flavors so I tried to put something together to get that distinct mouthfeel of the Hi-Chew, so I brought together MB American Bubble Gum, OOO Marshmallow (Vanilla), and some WF Sour Gummy Candy.
A little TPA Vanilla Swirt to add a tad more vanilla creaminess and to bring things together.
I went through several grapefruits before landing on SSA Grapefruit as the main note with support from FLV Pink Guava and the hardest working grapefruit in the game VT Honey Pomela, to bring some brightness to the party.
A little SS to sweeten and lift the citrus and we can call it a day. This is decent off the shake, but the bubble gum is a bit much. It starts to back off after a day or so.
I don't know if listing what you tested it with is still a thing, but dual coil RDA at .3 ohm on a stacked 21700 tube.
I really wanted to jump into Raspberries. I love FA Raspberry as it is the flavor of one my favorite candies, but I wanted to use it in a supporting role. Build a more comprehensive flavor.
Raspberries, SSA Raspberry Syrup. My first time using it, and it is fantastic. I added a little of FA Raspberry to boost the note on the top. I must say I really love it.
I added a bit of FA Forest fruit just to deepen the berry. Give it a little variety and depth.
The Gummy bit. I really like Sour Gummy Candy by WF and have used it quite a bit at this point. I don't have many gummy candies that don't have a particular fruit profile already in place. So I may grab another and try it at some point, but for now WF seems to fit the bill. I added a bit of CAP Strawberry Taffy to give both a taffy mouth feel and to add a bit more contrasting candy red fruit flavor. I like it for that.
A bit of Super Sweet pulls things together nicely. Still a work in progress, but I really like this right off the shake. Duel coil Kennedy on a stacked mech is how I vape. So usually starts around 250 Watts.
I have been working on this recipe for over a year. I've tried lots of flavors. I still have lots of flavors I haven't tried. Yogi is one of my favorite liquids of all time. All that being said this isn't a clone. I use flavors I think are in Yogi as a starting point, but I wanted to make a granola with a more of a nuttiness quality. Let's start.
The oat note fell into step with RF Oatmeal Cookie. I'm pretty sure this is the oat flavor in Yogi. It is a fantastic oat flavor. I added the WF Oats and Cream to support it.
In another support role is WF Honey Roasted Peanuts, it boosts the oat flavor with that peanut skin taste, while adding some honey coating,
One of the other key flavors is the WF Brown Sugar Cookie. Essential in providing that brown sugar depth with a tad of mouth feel.
FA Honey for the honey note.
FA Maple for the maple note, supported by FW Maple Pecan to try and some additional depth and nuttiness.
To add a richer dark sugar note and some additional nuttiness FW Butter Pecan.
I played with the percentages and this is where I landed. I'm happy with this as an all day vape. The super sweet just to boost everything. This will change as I get around to it. Suggestions welcome. At the end of the day, I get different flavors at different times, which is what I like in my vape. I vape this mostly on a series mech and enjoy the changes as my battery starts to weaken.
I've been on the search for a nice Grapefruit soda, and failing to find one, I thought I'd give it a go.
I saw OOO Squirts Soda which is the prime flavor in this case, but I felt it need a little more support.
I like a heavy grapefruit flavor so borrowing from my favorite Developed Recipe - Mellow Pomelo I used the combination of FW Ruby Red and VT Honey Pomelo. I tried a couple of other combinations and always came back to this duo.
To support the soda side of things there's nothing better than FLV Citrus soda and a healthy dose of CAP Lemon Lime to really bring the soda forward and blend some citrus into the mix. For a more rounded soda flavor.
A dash of Super Sweet to round things out a bit.
You can add .25% WS-23 if you like, but I prefer it without.
It seems to be the thing today to list what you are testing your recipe with, so here you go. Series Mech, .3 ohm dual round wire at about 250 Watts on a Kennedy RDA.
This particular journey started with a search for a hard apple cider. Something akin to the hard cider I make at home.
In the search for the fermented alcohol note I came across this recipe, and realized that a wine yeast is what this needed. It is what I use to make my cider anyway.
MECH MOD RN hit me in the taste buds with this sparkling wine profile.
Thus, we have the alcohol layer of Blood Orange Champagne for that boozy note and a little citrus to brighten things. Golden Syrup and Sparkling wine to round it out.
I wanted a nice full, pure apple flavor so I started with FA Apple Fuji with FA Pear to back it up. It took me a while and a chat with some Fancy Folks to pin down FLV Apple as the compliment.
Super Sweet to make it pop.
I don't know if I will change the ratios, but for now. . . . I dig this. I tested this Max VG for dual coil Kennedy with a .3 round wire and a series mech around 250W.
I love Lassi drinks and the one that sticks out the most to me is a Pineapple Lassi with ginger I had. This is my attempt to create that and to use MB's Pineapple Lassi.
So obviously I started with MB's Pineapple Lassi as I've been wanting to build something around that flavor. I kept it at 1.5% mostly because I want all these flavors to blend without one being too dominant.
I wanted to back up that pineapple with some fresh pineapple used in the drink, so I went with INW Pineapple for that purpose. After some trial and error I went with 3% to keep it above the ginger.
I added a fair amount of VT Yoghurt Drink to fill in the drink aspect and to lighten things a little with that lemon note.
To further push the creamy drink I added a dab of FA Cream Fresh just to add some nondescript creaminess.
The Ginger was hard. I honestly just went with Cap Gingerbread as that's the only ginger I have. I think it works. It does bring a bready note, but I kind of like it and makes the flavor a little more dense and layered.
The drink I had was sweetened with Honey, so I wanted to add a bit of that without getting a strong honey taste. I really wanted just a little of that honey depth and slight sweetness, so I went with a modest amount of FLV Milk & Honey. I think it blends well with the Cap Gingerbread as well.
Finally, this is a sweet drink so I added a tad of Cap Super Sweet to raise things.
Suggestions would be appreciated if another ginger would give me a mild sweet ginger note I could use.
This has to steep. The taste changes dramatically within the first 24 hours.
