Water Malone from Liquid Barn's Tastemaker Collection. Mixed at the recommended 10%, I liked this quite a bit. I’d heard it was a super authentic juicy yet pulpy watermelon and I had to see for myself. It is that, it tastes like a bold yet realistic sweet fleshy watermelon - but doused with a bit of apple juice. There’s some apple flavor in there and I’m definitely picking that up, both overnight and after steeping for two weeks. It’s like biting into a huge hunk of watermelon... that someone had spilled a little apple juice on. So, natural watermelon with a slight apple off-note. Spilling apple juice on your watermelon is a bit of an odd thing to do, but as off-notes in watermelon flavors go, apple is not a bad one to to have! This solves a lot of the problems many other watermelon flavors have in that it’s realistic not candy and has body but isn’t dry. Very much like biting right into a crispy fresh cut slice of watermelon, except for that little apple taste. It’s refreshing and light like actual watermelon, but with a full fruity mouthfeel and serious depth to it and a lingering sweet watermelon finish. Awesome stuff. I was more interested in how this might work as an ingredient than in having a watermelon one-shot, though. So, I made a fun little recipe with it. What are you going to do with a watermelon that has a hint of apple? Make a Strap-On of course. Wound up dropping it down to 6% to make some room for other flavors while still retaining all of its qualities.

FA Red Touch At first I tried to be fancy and use FA Pazzo Jack - imagine, a recipe made from not one, but two things intended to be one-shots. That was abandoned as soon as the first batch turned out just a bit soapy. I went right back to the tried and true FA Strawberry from the original Strap-On. 3% didn't stand up as well to all that watermelon and apple but 4% does put the Str in Strap-On.

FA Fuji Tried enhancing Water Malone's apple off-note with CAP Double Apple at first but didn't care for the result. It was too much and rather than mess around with concentration levels of that, we're again back to the OG Strap-On's apple.

That's a very funny photoshop, but how does it taste?

It tastes like a well-balanced Strawberry-Apple-Watermelon fruit punch. Like something that you'd expect to find in a Capri Sun pouch. Delicious, sweet, juicy, refreshing. I don't recommend actually shake and vaping it because you might get some harshness from the Fuji, but it needs only an overnight steep to settle down and settle in.

Thanks, D. Keff for the photoshop work.

An ice cold blueberry cream.

Yes, that's 19% total flavor. I am not ashamed. I wanted that flavor fully saturated and satisfying and able to stand up to a lot of cooling for summer and here it is.

It tastes kind of like frozen blueberry pie filling topped with rich vanilla whipped cream except turned upside down because of course the cream comes in underneath, as creams do.

FW Blueberry/TFA Blueberry Extra - Blueberry syrup and blueberries.

TFA Dragonfruit - Blends with FW Blueberry to make it more reminiscent of that thick, shiny goop that is blueberry pie filling.

FE Lemon - A little lemon makes blueberries pop just like it does when cooking and baking. Plenty of other lemon flavors would work here at 0.25% but I wanted one that doesn't fade.

TFA Vanilla Swirl/TFA Bavarian Cream - This has long been one of my favorite combinations of creams for a full mouthfeel and richness and a nice bit of vanilla in the background.

CAP Super Sweet - 0.25%, just enough to really carry that sweet cream to the finish line and beyond. I chose this sweetener over others I'd usually reach for first due to its potency, to keep from going even higher than 19%. But FLV Sweetness or FW Sweetener would work just as well in the 0.35 to 0.5% range.

WS-23 - It's 100+ Fahrenheit every day for the past week and for the forecastable future. I need a cold vape. Not all the time, but I need one I can reach for that's mixed up and ready to go. A different coolant will not work here. They'll rip those creams to shreds.

Steep Time - I put 7 days as a minimum, but best after? Not sure. At three weeks here, it keeps getting better.

A dense, mellow cantaloupe vape with fleshy tropical accents.

Created for "Flavor of the Week: Cantaloupe"

FLV Cantaloupe for that rind-free natural cantaloupe top note and some non-dairy almost-creaminess underneath. Under-rated, under-used TFA Jackfruit for an even fleshier body with soft hints of pineapple and mango coming though. It keeps things more interesting than just a straight cantaloupe vape. CAP Cantaloupe blends with the Jackfruit to keep the melon ball rolling though where FLV Cantaloupe starts to drop off in meloniousness and just fades into thick almost creamy softness. This flavor has a tiny bit of some sharp perfumey thing going on briefly in the top note in single-flavor testing, but FLV Cantaloupe is just completely overriding and obliterating that for me. This is the only version out of half a dozen experiments throwing different manufacturers' Cantaloupe flavors on top of this TFA Jackfruit/CAP Cantaloupe base that actually worked and made for a perfectly pleasant vape without any weird off-notes.

BUT, it feels incomplete - which is why the "In Progress" box is checked. Mostly it just needs to be juicier, but rather than going for one of the knee-jerk juicifiying reactions (INW Cactus, etc), I want to try adding pineapple or mango flavors to add acidity while also playing off those notes from the jackfruit, or if that comes off too just generically yellow-orange, maybe a juicier grape, cherry, or dark berry. I wouldn't recommend anyone mix up a big batch of this, but if you're looking to create a cantaloupe-forward recipe, give it try and see if it inspires you.

It's LUCKY FUCKING CHARMS. With milk.

You might not want to buy FW Cake Batter Dip to make this. It's got fructose in it, it will destroy your wicks relatively quick even at just 1%. It might be bad for you, too, burning sugars can release carcinogens. But if you have some already and want to use it, maybe give this a try. Unfortunately, I don't have a sub for it, it's unique. And it perfects the sweet cereal that's been baptized in milk and is starting to return to its doughy origin.

TFA Lucky Leprechaun has some oat puff cereal hiding in there with a somewhat weird (possibly emulating the taste of artificial coloring?) crisp cereal-type marshmallow. I used CAP Cereal 27 to draw it out of hiding. Took some work to make it happen without turning puffed oat into corn or multigrain cereal, but I think this gets it down. OoO Cream Milky PG helps with that, sort of wraps around it and keeps that cornflake pyrazine taste from being too assertive while also doing a fine job as a cereal milk. If you're lucky enough to own some FA Milk, you can add that at 1% for an even milker cereal with whole milk. TFA Meringue in my opinion is a slightly better option for sugary, toasty cereal and cereal milk perfecting than FA Meringue, which is a more authentic meringue. But if you only have FA Meringue, you can sub that at 1% instead of the 1.5% TFA Meringue. Although Lucky Lep is mostly a cereal marshmallow flavor, cranking it up high enough to really make the marshmallows stand out just gets too chemical-tasting and weird for me. FLV Marshmallow + FLV Whipped Cream finish putting the charms in Lucky's Charms. These two flavors are so similar that if you don't have one of them or are just too lazy to get them both out, you could make this with 1% of either instead of 0.5% of both. The difference will be how long you let the marshmallows soak in milk. All Marshmallow = No soak, just teeth-squeakingly crunchy mallows. All Whipped Cream = Marshmallows are getting milk-logged and have a slippy, gooey outer layer, but still have that crisp sugar center. I just happen to like a happy medium.

No flavor company executives' feelings were harmed in the making of this recipe.

A macaron flavored with fruit from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil

The theme for Mixers' Club was "duets" - taking two existing recipes and making them sing together. I wanted to try to marry my macaron base from my Mango Blossom Macaron to the best recipe to come out of last year's DIYorDIE world mixing competition, the heavenly three-ingredient "In a Godda Da Vida" by the incomparable @mlNikon. The earliest versions were disastrous. TFA Papaya and FA Pomegranate and not to be trifled with. It took turning them down further and further and even adjusting the ratio a bit to get Godda to fit into a light and airy meringue and almond flour cookie with an ingratiating touch of forbidden fruit flavor.

A Notoriously delicious papaya macaron with honey cream filling

The theme for Mixers' Club was "duets" - taking two existing recipes and making them sing together. I wanted to try using the macaron base from my Mango Blossom Macaron with a different tropical fruit, and the first thing that came to mind was swiping the top off of the last public recipe by the late, great @NotCharlesManson (May Peace Be Upon Him). That funky papaya, backed up by apricot and presented with a bit of honey, was just so yummy situated in a rich cream. Would it work here too? Yes, I think it does, deliciously, but only after being dialed way, way back to fit subtly into a delicate pastry.

Mix some up, and don't forget to pour a little out for the dearly departed.

A Cinnamon Toast Crunch-flavored macaron

I built this to be a delightful contrast between sophisticated dessert, the French macaron, and childhood memories, Saturday mornings in front of cartoons with a big bowl of CTC. Rather than re-inventing the wheel, I started with the macaron base from my Mango Blossom Macaron recipe. The rest is pretty straightforward, though it took some work the get it all to sit in the recipe without overpowering the macaron. FLV Cinnamon Crunch is a great flavor that actually tastes a lot like CTC all by itself, with just a few minor issues. It's not quite crunchy enough - the light touch of TFA AP fixes that. It's a little low on cinnamon - FLV Rich Cinnamon solves that problem, but it's so strong. One fat drop in a 40ml is plenty. For mixing less than 40ml of this, you probably want to create a 10% Rich Cinnamon + 90% PG dilution and use it at 0.8%. The bit of Rich Cinnamon also annihilates a little hint of unwanted maple I get from the Cinnamon Crunch. FA Milk at 1% gives that FLV Cream an accurate hint of dairy to finish the recipe, without getting too soggy.

Doesn't actually taste like seawater.

It's that blue beverage from Sonic Drive-In that's just Sprite + coconut-flavored syrup. It's blue because their coconut syrup has blue food coloring in it.

An apple cider pudding pie

This is a flamboyantly autumnal recipe that, being shared in the first week of spring, couldn't possibly be more out-of-season. It's also poached entirely from @ConcreteRiver's delicious Deer Lodge recipe, with all of the ingredients being exactly the same, even used at the same concentrations, with just two small additions.

This is not meant to imply that there is anything wrong with Deer Lodge, that it's missing or lacking anything at all. But when FlavorPro Jennifer Jarvis asked for a pudding pie for the #yearofmixing competition, I knew immediately that I wanted to try to wrap Rick's hopped-up apple cider pudding in a delicate, subtle pie crust. Several attempts with various other crusty ingredients did not work. This one does.

I don't get any apple or spice (not that either of them would be unwelcome here) out of FA Apple Pie. It just tastes like a plain ol' pie crust. And it's the only non-graham pastry crust flavor I could get to work as a main crusty competent here. The others trampled the hell out of that that lovely rich buttery pudding base. A light touch of FW Pie Crust provides another layer of bakery, making for a more flaky, less doughy, pie. Its darker sweetness emulates the edges of the crust, where the pie is crunchier and browner. The result? A dessert vape fit for the hunter coming home after a long day on the deer lease.

It's Peepus Christ, crucified on a white chocolate cross. He died for your diabeetus.

Recipe development takes time. Even when batching out different versions at the same time, it takes time to balance the ingredients just the way you want them. So I've shared weekly recipes on FlavorPro's facebook page for the #yearofmixing competition and even won a super fancy pen in one of the random drawings for it, but those recipes were version one and I haven't had time to develop any of them enough to be worthy of posting on ATF. Until now. This one was conceived for FlavorPro's Peeps Week. Mix some up and have it well-steeped in time for Easter!

I used a combination of FLV White Chocolate and FW White Chocolate to get plenty of creamy white chocolately flavor, something I learned from trying the delicious Crazberry Crack recipe by @jbird .

FA Marshmallow, FLV Marshmallow, and FLV Whipped Cream make up Peepus' body, which is broken for you. Take, vape, do this in remembrance of him. FLV Marshmallow and FLV Whipped Cream are so similar, you could really use one of them at 1% instead of both at 0.5%, but the result will either be a little more dry or a little more loose, depending.

Getting something resembling artificially colored granulated sugar coating was harder, but a combination of OoO Powdered Sugar, FW Sweetener, and a little FW Birthday Cake got me as close as felt I needed to go. Peepus will forgive me for it not being perfect as long as it's yummy.

EVERYONE SHOULD TRY THIS.... MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. This proves spectacularly that Cactus can be the co-star of a delicious creamy fruit custard show. It's as well-balanced as a trapeze artist. There's no aloe here - which is what I was mostly afraid of when I saw 2% Cactus - nor any soapiness or offensively floral perfume or anything like that. You first get hit with two distinct fruity top notes, the fruit of the prickly pear and natural pear, and then it registers that these are suspended in a creamy custard, which is just a delightful moment. This is not as totally off-the-wall as it might seem. Cactus and cactus fruit are staples in Central American cuisine. I have found culinary recipes for prickly pear custard, and pear custards are everywhere. This just puts the cactus fruit and pear custards together. At the end, you're left with a lingering lip-licking raw but wet sugar-glaze finish, like someone forgot to brûlée a cactus-pear crème brûlée. I can hardly wait to mix some more!

5 stars for deliciousness, overnight steep only, wish I'd made more because I don't think this is going to last very long at all. But almost gave only 4 stars due to false advertising; this is not just a "touch" of cardamom - it's super cardamommy. Will definitely mix again, might cut the spice in half next time to see how that sweet dough tastes without so much of it. But might not, because it is so, so good.

This recipe has performed a miracle: It has made a banana juicy. I mean, squeeze a banana. Put a banana in blender. Fucking take a hydraulic press to the damn thing. No juice, just baby food. But this has made possible the impossibility of biting into a banana that gushes so much banana juice it runs down my face. Like being transported into another dimension where bananas are as juicy as watermelons. That's as wonderful as it is weird. Thanks Philosaphucker for a recipe that will have a regular spot in my rotation!

If you've ever wondered what blue raspberry snow cones taste like in heaven, this it. The snow cone stand that gives away this deliciousness is halfway between the beer volcano and the stripper factory and this juice recipe is the only way to taste them on this side of the veil of death.

This tastes terrific! It's like a fresh sopapilla tossed in cinnamon & brown sugar and then topped with vanilla ice cream. Very complex and hits all the right notes after steeping for 15 days. I wouldn't suggest changing a thing. I've been meaning to try to make a sopapilla cheesecake vape that would be a simpler profile (based on a culinary recipe that's just canned crescent rolls, cream cheese, vanilla, cinnamon, and sugar) and will probably steal liberally from this when I do. But in the meantime, I need to get some more of this in the steeping drawer because it is delicious. Thanks Myztik!

UPDATE: Tastes like a good steep might make it a winner 2 days out in my tank, but some problematic off-notes when dripped. Excited to try this again with all of the flavors reduced by a quarter, no other changes. Older review: Made this last night so it hasn't steeped yet (and it definitely needs to), but with my morning coffee it seems like you may have finally cracked the donut code with your crazy-looking flavor %'s. Will update this review after steep. I still have two more versions I want to try, one planned and one already steeping, but I won't be surprised if I find this is the winner. It finally has that "wet, sticky glaze" quality that previous versions were lacking.

This is a great mango lassi, I just wish the mango got down into the yogurt base more instead of being mostly top notes. Could also stand to be a little sweeter. Super excited about the upcoming V2!

This is indeed a great ADV for vanilla or custard lovers. The combination of VC and VBIC in a 2:1 ratio is an unforgettable team of double vanilla diacetylicousness and I thoroughly enjoy what those little bits of NY Cheesecake and Graham Cracker do to them. Nice to see this finally on ATF, SleepersDemon!

The flavors are nice and melt together smoothly into a sweet fruity treat after steeping for 9 or 10 days. But what really made an impression on me is the mouth-feel, which is nothing short of luxurious. I could not have guessed this juice would be so thick and creamy from just looking at the ingredients.

WOW! This is very different and super tasty. It tastes like someone took a grapefruit shandy, mixed it with some guava nectar, and then took that and made a bubblegum based on it. That's was the first thing that came to mind when I vaped it. Bubblegum. It doesn't taste anything like bubblegum at all, at least no bubblegum I've ever had, but it's both very thick and super wet and juicy in a way that's not quite like anything I've vaped before. It's exactly like the way good bubblegum makes your mouth water like crazy as you chew it. Amazing recipe!

I came back to re-review this after a longer steep and give it 4 stars instead of the three I gave it after the short steep that was recommended, but it looks like you've made some significant changes to it since then. The changes look really tasty, I'll have to give this new-improved version a try and then re-review.

Absolutely love the idea behind this one. My favorite version of PB&J is grape jelly too! Enjoyed the vape too, I like how it all has a nice gooey feel to it like an actual shake with PB in it. The only room for improvement I noted is that the grape tastes more like raw grapes than jelly, and that by the time the off-note in Vienna Cream steeps out (tried after an overnight steep first), both the peanut butter and grape, which were previously distinct and in just the right place, became somewhat muted and muddled. Might try it again and just leave out the Vienna Cream or swap it for something else and shake and vape it rather than waiting for Vienna to steep, cuz that gooey PB and grape inside a shake is NICE.

I can't believe I didn't pile onto this orgiastic love-fest sooner, doing the review just slipped my mind. This is a truly remarkable recipe, there needs to be way to give more than 5 stars to this one. It does need about a 5 day steep to reach perfection. And after that I can imagine it might not be a strong steeper, but I'll probably never know how long it can last because it's too good to put down.

This is an odd profile that might not be for everyone, but I loved it and found it to taste very much like the filling in those delicious Goya Guava Wafers. I might try adding a very small (1.5% or so) amount of CAP Sugar Cookie and maybe some TFA Vanilla Swirl (1.5% or so) to see if I can get the wafer part and really emulate those things.
User: ID10-T Score: 5 Entered: over 1 year ago
I can't really comment on authenticity since I've only ever had guanabana nectar and not the actual fruit, but with a juice that tastes this good, who cares about authenticity? It just hits all the right spots, with a tartness that works like a tart fresh strawberry or a bit of pineapple and makes an excellent counterweight to the sweet, creamy milkshake base. That tartness kept me coming back and never getting bored. I try to give some constructive criticism on every critique but I'm mostly drawing blanks here, as this is a 5-star, ADV quality vape and I can't think of anything that might make it better than it already is... balance, mouthfeel, originality (in the sense that I've never had anything quite like this before, I know the milkshake base was borrowed but that was a great decision to make), everything about this is just gets it done. 10ml left me wanting more without any thoughts on how I might try tweaking it, and that is rare. Great recipe!!!

I wished there was just a wee bit more butterscotch here, but that might have been from trying it at max VG instead of my usual 70/30, and otherwise this tastes delectable. There's nothing off or unpleasant about it in any way whatsoever. I enjoying the vanilla bakery base right were it is, just as it was described, like a muffin top but for a cupcake, a cupcake top which is covered with sweet butterscotch/cream cheese icing. Those should be a thing. Who cares about the bottom half of a cupcake, anyway?

A sweet, soothing peppermint cream somewhat reminiscent of a Shamrock Shake. I have the flu and nothing tastes as it should, I can barely vape anything with this cough, but this recipe was a godsend that actually feels good on my sore throat. It's only had a one-day steep at this point, I imagine it will get even better over time as most things with Vanilla Swirl do.

Love, love, love this. I let it have about 36 hours steep, didn't take long at all for this delicate flower to work its way into this Strap-On wonderfully. Honeysuckle complements this fruit mix without getting too floral at 2%. It actually seems to enhance the inherent sweetness in the fruits. Kinda reminds me of Honey Pearry. Kudos, Havohej!

Of all the strap-ons I've tried -- original Strap-On, numerous unpublished variations, Spiny Dragon Strap-On, Suckle My Strap-On -- this one is my favorite so far. It's like a strap-on in paradise. That sweet, nectary mango juices up the basic and slightly dry strap-on beautifully and gives a tropical twist to the other flavors without obscuring them at 1.5%. The only thing I don't love about it is that I didn't think of it myself. Thanks for this one, Apexified!

At 6 days in, not quite nailing the profile, but closer than my failed attempts, pretty darn tasty, and definitely worth a mix for anyone interested in the elusive Cookie Butter and wanting a very solid starting place. I think I'll try bringing the Gingerbread, CDS, and Custard all down a hair, increasing the CAP Sugar Cookie a bit, and adding some FA Caramel and FA Meringue.

If this is what a penis literally tastes like, maybe I've been playing for the wrong team all along. There's enough going on here to keep it very interesting but not so much as to be a mess. It's a yummy blend of fruits that tastes like a Polynesian vacation away from custards and cookies. Punching up that realistic but weak watermelon with a melon that really lingers on the palate and adding coconut gives it kind of an 'otai vibe, as if someone blended a banana and some applesauce into a watermelon 'otai for added fun and deliciousness. This was a nice surprise for me because on paper, I thought this might just taste like a more interesting and watermelon-forward version of Tiger's Blood snow cone, with an added squirt of banana syrup that the snow cone stand guy might let you have for a wink and a quarter. Instead, the strawberry stays well in the background and could maybe even be left out of this mix, either just omitted or possibly replaced with addition of a little of a different coconut. But then, that'd be a different dick and this one tastes terrific just the way it is.

The berry part just comes on too strong for me, not only taking over but even getting a little perfumey. Which is a shame, because there seems, as best I can tell, to be a fantastic donut underneath an unfortunately floral berry. I would like to try this again with either the raspberry reduced or removed and replaced with something else, or the huckleberry and raspberry both reduced to let the bakery aspect shine through more.

Edible's fuzzy faux peen is a soft and gentle counterpart to sharper strap-on renditions. It tastes like he was asked to make a juice that tastes like the end of a sweet Southern summer and completely arose to the occasion. Even at only 1%, INW Peach steals the show, but the watermelon and strawberry behind it give it a the flavor of a peach-forward summer fruit punch at first, and then Fuji hauls the peach on its back, carrying it further that it could go on its own and leaving a lingering Peach Apple Juicy Juice flavor that makes me want more and inspires me to explore a Fuji/Peach pairing with other additions in the future. Thanks for this deliciousness!

This is a delicious strawberry watermelon colada with extra cream that does indeed go down smooth! At first I thought it was good, but could have been better if it used INW Pineapple instead of that tinny CAP Golden. But after a vaping on it a bit, it grew on me more and more just the way it is. I definitely recommend giving it a decent steep. I'm sure it's fine S&V but that whipped cream gets thicker and sweeter if you give it some time, yum yum yum.

Hot damn this is some fruity yumminess! After a 6-day steep, it is so juicy, like fruit salad with featuring juiciest ripe honeydew just dripping down my face, none of that crispy underripe melon crap.

This recipe turns me on. It also turns the "On" part of Strap-On from a kinda boring and oddly dry watermelon into a wildly succulent and refreshing mixed melon while still letting the "Strap" part poke out. I'm so glad I got the FLV Wild Melon for this! Thanks, Reldof!

This is awesome! It turns Strap-on into a tasty chewy fruity bubble gum and I love it. This is a recipe I could easily see myself coming back to.I don't have any constructive criticism because I wouldn't change a thing here. I do have some curiosity about ways it could be played with, though. What if something like 5% VBIC and 1% Cream Fresh were added? Would it taste like one of those ice cream truck fruity ice cream treats shaped after cartoon characters, complete with gummy eyeballs? Are ice cream truck ice cream treats with gummy eyeballs something that would be fun to vape? If you wanted to sell drugs and/or kidnap children, would an ice cream truck be a great cover?

Adding Guanabana and Cherimoya to Strap-On to give it a tropical twist and a creamy bottom was genius! I let my picky friend try this and she asked for the first time, after trying much of my stuff, why I don't make juice for a living. I took all I had to admit that the best 40% of this recipe wasn't mine.

Not an unpleasant flavor by any means but seems to suffer from just a bit too much going on. It's just overwhelmingly busy with the fruity top notes. It wouldn't be a strap-on anymore, but I'd like to try it again with either the apple, strawberries, or melons removed. Probably the apple seems most out of place; it tastes like a good start to something like a melon-strawberry milk. No matter what, I wouldn't change that vanilla milk base; it's heavenly.

Definitely delivers deep darkness as promised. An enjoyable vape, but not among my most favorite strap-ons because that cherry does seem to turn just a smidge toward medicinal for me.

This needs more than the 3 days recommended, IMO. There's a little harshness and dryness, kind of a rindy taste, at just 3 days. Give it 8 though, and you've got a mouthwatering strawberry kiwi watermelon that tastes like candy made with real kiwi in it. Delicious!

Wow. I am impressed, even with just an overnight steep - and I imagine it will only get better with time. I was definitely skeptical about this one, even with Skiddlzninja's name on it. I thought it might be too busy with the fruit notes or have something pop out as being out of place. Did he even try or was he just throwing some shit together to keep up his end of a strange bargain? But all my doubts have been laid to rest. It's a bit weird, yes, but in the best possible way. None of the fruit notes really stand out, they all sort of melt together into this big, somewhat candyfied fruit something. Best way I can describe it... Remember when you were a kid and your grandparents dragged you to one of those bland, disgusting cafeteria-type restaurants, like Golden Feeding Trough or whatever, and they had soft-serve ice cream and a ridiculous array of various toppings, gummy bears and sprinkles and fruits and even freakin' gumballs, and being a kid (who either trusted with the innocence of a child the effectiveness of those sneeze guards, or simply didn't think about them at all) you just loaded that shit up with all kinds of crap? And you loved every single bit of it so much that your little heart was just bursting with love for grandparents and ice cream and fruity candy? That's what this is. Every hit of this is an instant trip back in time to eating that bowl of wonderful, ridiculously-topped soft serve. Skiddlz earned those scotches, for sure.

Love this simple, delicious recipe. After steeping for week, it reminds me of those thick and soft Lofthouse Cookies piled high with icing, if you can imagine the icing infused with ripe strawberries instead of just being a big pile of sugar. A couple more weeks and it becomes something different but even tastier, something buttery rich, darkly sweet, and super-smooth.

First of all, this is a Strap-On recipe, one of the early ones, way ahead of the recent phenomenon. Stacks on Deck even sounds like "Strap On Dick" and on the off chance that wasn't intentional, it was at least a subconscious connection. Secondly, this is a mouthwatering, exciting fruity combo. Anton and LA Watermelon seem made for each other. It has some throat when fresh for me, but still delicious and more tart. However, let it steep for two weeks and it's juicy goodness that goes in super smooth like apple and watermelon jolly ranchers lubed up with a little strawberry syrup and is hard as hell to put down.

My Honeydew damage rears it's ugly head. I love TFA Honeydew but I can't seem to tolerate it at the levels other people enjoy it. Whatever alchemy went into making 4% TFA Honeydew taste delicious to me in the original Honey Sucker is missing from this version and the result is a mouthful of soap. That said, I'm crazy about CAP Cantaloupe thanks to that recipe and the combination of INW Peach and JF Honey Peach has proven wonderful elsewhere, so I'm sure anyone who doesn't have some kind of weird honeydew problem would love this mix. I'm going to give it another go with the Honeydew cut in half. UPDATE: Yeah, I still don't like it as much as the original Honey Sucker, but with half as much Honeydew, this is delicious and super juicy.

Weird tart grapple up front, juicy melon finish, with sweet strawberry throughout. There seems to be just a bit of that Grack magic going on here in the way it grew on me. At first it was frankly painful, that grape seemed to have a medicinal quality and I was taken aback. But I kept coming back to it and as my palate stretched, I began to become accustomed to the way it fits in here, and then pretty quickly started to really enjoy it. Now I don't see myself stopping until the whole bottle is empty!

UPDATE: This doesn't need anything changed to have a thicker, fuller mouthfeel. Revisiting it, I found it just needs a longer steep than the recommended 10 days. Have patience with this one and it will reward you for it. Previous review: I love this stuff! The cran/raz mixture is perfect, tart/sweet and for real feels more like berries than juice. They pop. That's a neat trick with the pom and if I had to guess, I think without it that I wouldn't be nearly as inclined to vape this all day. But it stays interesting enough to do just that. I'm so happy my kid brother's lazy but highly addictive contribution to holiday feasts inspired a juice worthy of having crack in the name. I do wish it had a bit more of a thicker, fuller, more satisfying mouthfeel but only, ONLY!!!, if that could be achieved without messing up this cran/raz magic.

Classy take on strawberry milk! Consider me delighted.

I've tried a lot of simple two-ingredient combinations with FLV Mango and this is the best one yet. As suggested, you could try adding any number of other fruits to it and it would likely take well to them. I'm looking forward to playing with it. Probably starting with some kind of coconut. But it's tasty as hell all by itself, with Jackfruit gently highlighting and enhancing the pineappley and fleshy, peachy notes in the mango. If you're into cooling agents like Koolada, adding a little could easily make this a sweet tropically fruity summertime ADV.

But I never would have attempted or assumed I would enjoy a straight up-coconut milk vape. The coconut flavors we have just didn't seem built for that. I was wrong. This has all the right things and none of the wrong things. Tastes like coconut milk with some coconut cream added in and is very natural, none of that suntan oil or even snow-cone flavor. It's rich and sweet but not too rich or too sweet and a smooth, easy vape.

This is delicious. The chocolate chip cookie dough chunks part of this is wonderful. I get a startlingly accurate cookie dough that's maybe a bit heavy on the chocolate, not quite chocolate cookie dough with chocolate chips but more like the chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream with extra chocolate chunks. I like the vanilla flavor, it reminds me of the way I like to add extra vanilla to homemade cookie dough. But the 4 instead of 5 stars, despite the great flavor here, is because seems to be seriously lacking in the ice cream department. I wouldn't have guessed it was supposed to be an ice cream recipe if I hadn't read the description. I think I'd like to try this with more VBIC in it and maybe some other ice cream ingredients like HS French Vanilla Ice Cream, if those could be increased/added without messing up this tasty cookie dough.

This is one of the most befuddling things I've ever vaped. It took almost all of 30ml to decide whether I even liked it or not, which has to be some kind of record. I had trouble putting it down, mostly because it confused me and I was desperately trying to get a handle on it. Texturally, it's very moist and juicy, yet there's a density to it as well. It's chewy, like a chewing a fresh piece of mouthwatering bubblegum. But flavor is just this intensely confusing blend of sweet grape-esque fruitiness and bitter vegetal greenness, with buttery vanilla finish. There's so much going on, but not too much. I worry about what else goes on the mind that of someone would concoct such a thing as this, but I would heartily recommend it to anyone who is tired of vaping the same old stuff. Fans of Fiestas & Fiascos by ConcreteRiver and the famous Grack Juice by Philosaphucker should definitely give this a shot.

Abuela is a GILF. This recipe is sultry as all get-out. I feel like the owner of a mango plantation enjoying a fine cigar while surveying my orchard. This isn't your gas station mango cigar that's just going to get hollowed out for a blunt, with fake mango flavor all in your face. Instead, the fruit just artfully teases the palate as if carried on an intermittent tropical breeze though the mango trees, resulting in the most enjoyable tobacco vape I've ever encountered.

This is an interesting, extra juicy, full-bodied mix of natural and candy fruit that I would have been in love with if it weren't giving me a bit of a soapy note. Don't let that stop you from trying it. I have issues with soapiness from some other flavors (looking at you TFA Honeydew) that many other mixers don't get at the same %s. We all have our own little types of damage. I don't have enough experience with some of these flavors to identify the culprit or culprits, but once I do, I bet this combination of ingredients with one or two of the %s lowered will result in something I can't put down.

I love this incredibly delicious, unique recipe! When I was a young kid one of my favorite breakfasts was warm, fresh white rice with a pat of sugar, a spoonful of sugar, and a splash of milk. The milk & sweet rice combo strokes that childhood nostalgia spot, while the vanilla cream with honeysuckle speaks to my adult tastes. No off notes or flaws in the recipe, it's exactly as described. I gave it only an overnight steep. I suspect it could deteriorate relatively quickly. I'm sure it would still be tasty, but that rice would melt into an indistinct starch and vanilla will take over. I won't find out, though, because this 30 ml doesn't stand a chance of making it more than a day and a half or so before I blissfully vape it down to the last drop!

Truth: This is too good to not share. I started sampling it after only an overnight steep and immediately loved it, but if you either have some patience or make enough, it gets even better around day 3 or 4, when the lime begins to intertwine with the honeysuckle and the creams start to thicken more and give you a richer, more satisfying vape that's not so top heavy. I would encourage anyone who enjoyed the original Longing give this improved version a try.

I found this to be a very tasty (hence the 5-stars) recipe, as well as an interesting take on boba tea and creative use of FE Sweet Rice. But, not without issues. I gave it a drip after the recommended 5 days and again the next day and what I got was not "the starchy flavor of the bubbles" - it was very distinctly rice-y, tasted like a bowl of rice with mango milk tea poured all over it. Definitely not unpleasant, but a bit weird and not accurate to the description. On the 6th day, I filled up a sub-ohm tank with it and got the same thing, minus some nuance. It wasn't until the morning of the 7th day, when I vaped the juice that had been sitting in the tank overnight, that it became more of a generic starchy note like those wonderful chewy tapioca balls, rather than a weird yet entirely pleasant bowl of rice. Unfortunately, tank-steeping made the mango fade quite a bit. Refilled the tank and we're back to rice again. It wasn't until day 10 that it the rice finally faded enough to lend the starchy flavor without specifically tasting of rice, and without too much mango note loss, so I could at last truly enjoy a better mango boba. TLDR; wonderful recipe, I think the recommended steep time should be doubled. Maybe things steep faster in Skiddlzland or my scale misread how much Sweet Rice went in there.

Smooth, creamy vape that I give five stars for just being so darn delicious, but it also drove me a little crazy. It tastes like grasping for something that's just out of reach. As soon as I opened the bottle of FLV Persimmon, I knew "Yearning" was the perfect name for a recipe with a plot, a sort-of story in a bottle about wanting to be able to vape have a vape tastes the way that smells, but without the throat razors. This seems to stop just barely short of that full persimmon flavor, but so close to it that it's less of a disappointment and more like being edged to the point of insanity. Like every hit is so good, but instead of fully satisfying, it leaves you craving more. It tastes like no matter how much of this you make, you'll be sad when it's all gone.

Something strange is going on here. 2% CAP Creamy Yogurt doesn't sound like much yogurt and 4% of that weak TFA Grape Juice doesn't sound like much grape. And yet, this is both yogurty (to a fault, IMO) and super grapey. My only problem with it is that I'm not getting "sweet yogurt ice cream" or frozen yogurt that's more like ice cream than yogurt, I'm getting a full-on grape yogurt with emphasis on the 'gurt. That's a little off-putting when you're expecting grape fro-yo and you get grape go-gurt. On the other hand, adding Kiwi to get better grape out of TFA Grape Juice? Genius. This is a recipe that has a lot of potential, and maybe just needs some adjustment in that 2/2 Creamy Yogurt/Vanilla Ice Cream base for more ice cream, less yogurt. If it can be added without bringing along icky off notes, some cooling additive might be welcome here as well.

I see this as a recipe with HUGE potential, held back by just one ingredient. Combining Grape Juice with Forest Fruits? Awesome. Combining Grape with Lemon and Forest Fruits with Lemon? Hell, yes. But that Blueberry Lemonade Slushie. It has a weird chemical off-note for me as a shake and vape. I tried this with just a short steep as suggested to see if something in the recipe managed to mask that, no luck. I tried letting it steep for over a week to see if it steeped out and it does, but what it leaves behind is a blueberry that's a little too earthy for this application and a lemonade that's a little too Country Time for my personal taste. Yanking that Blueberry Lemonade Slushie out of here and replacing it with a more realistic lemon flavor could turn this into an outstanding recipe, in my opinion.

There's a surprising amount of flavor here for 5.69% and that flavor is enjoyable, but for accuracy to the PUC profile, I'd like it more if the glaze was a bit more glaze-y. It's a bit thin, like it needs some more brown sugar-type flavor. Also, it seems a bit high on the cherry, but a thicker coating of that brown sugar glaze that makes PUC so good would probably fix that without having to change the cherry %.

If you like OSDIY Blue Raspberry Slush or blue raspberry anything at all, I think you'll love this; it takes everything about that flavor, levels it up, and freezes it cold. FW Pink Champagne and CAP Hibiscus hit that textural component of syrup mix and fine ice excellently.

Before I say something that might be misconstrued as "don't mix this" - MIX THIS! But don't mix too much; the notorious fading of FA Lemon Sicily and the muting properties of Strawberry Ripe combine in a perfect storm of recipe degradation. It falls apart in about 3 days. Easy solution; don't make more than you can vape in about 3 days. Start vaping immediately; it's a true shake and vape recipe. During those days; enjoy a sublime blend berry and lemonade. The lemonade base itself is more CountryTime than anything an actual lemon was involved in creating, but there's absolutely nothing wrong with that. Who doesn't love a nice cold glass of CountryTime Pink Lemonade at the end of a hot summer day, right?! This is that, done perfectly. To make it even better than perfect add some coolant of your choice -- I made a second batch with 1.5% WS-23 (30% solution in PG), but FA Polar Blast would probably be good too -- and get refreshed AF.

One of those recipes where five stars doesn't seem sufficient. I don't know what this creator was thinking, but it tastes like he tried TFA Honeysuckle by itself, thought about what to add to make it taste as amazing as possible, and succeeded. The TFA Pear and honeysuckle melt together to become one delicious pear-suckle thing, while FA Pear gives it so much sweet juiciness. The cream pulls it all together and finishes it with a light, yet satisfying fullness. Proof that the classic honeysuckle & pear combo doesn't need melon, lime, or strawberry to be sexy as hell. And a standout example of how a relatively simple recipe doesn't necessarily have to taste simple.

I'll be so happy when I run out of this delicious and perfect lemon macaron recipe so I get back to my to-do list. The only word of warning I would give about this recipe is to mind the steep time. I snuck a taste at 5 days and while it was tasty, the lemon is a just little too much for a delicate macaron. At 8 days, the lemon drops down just enough for that less in-your-face lemon you want in this kind of pastry. If you love lemon bakery recipes, give this one a try.

This is a masterpiece, both in accuracy and flavor. I've struggled with the way FLV Mango tries to sit on top of a recipe and come up with some tricks for dragging it down into the mix, but here, it rests right on top of the rice base, the way mango with sticky rice should. And the coconuts and cream fresh are used perfectly to get that sticky rice down. So it's both layered and balanced exquisitely and despite being a relatively simple recipe, it tastes like a considerable amount of work went into it. If you've ever worked with coconuts, you KNOW a lot of work went into it. A reminder, though, to anyone reading this, pay attention to the "this is not a recipe to throw in your steep cabinet" instruction. The FA Coconut might help keep it together a little longer, but FE Sweet Rice will fall apart before too long.

Yep, that's bread. Definitely not for solo use except as a novelty or if you are a complete weirdo, but it tastes like a thick slice of homemade white bread and this wizardry has fully revived what had been a dying effort to create a Goober Grape vape. https://www.reddit.com/r/GooberGrapeVape/

I tried this with half a percent more Zeppola and I can't imagine that half a percent made a huge difference. It was terrific, like ripping the top half of the crust off of a homemade apple fried pie and it throwing it away before devouring the rest.

This is perfection in a bottle. Good lord, I should have tried this sooner. Like Runtdastardly said when nominating it for 2016 recipe of the year, "There are a million recipes you can keep humping, but, this is the one you marry."

This recipe is a technical marvel - totally S&V-able warm, fresh bear claw with a startlingly accurate slivered almond topping. Five stars for that. But despite showing off an incredible level of skill, I wish I'd made a smaller bottle. Once you get over what an achievement this is, vaping it starts to get old. That FW Whiskey starts to get a little weird and meaty-tasting. But I blame the contest restrictions more than anything else for that. What this is good for, more than anything else besides proving that the mixer is a genius, is getting someone very excited to try the two spinoffs, Loup Garou and Cherry Cheese Wolf.

What started as merely trying this recipe because FLV Mango + Fear = Must Mix for me after Abuela, turned into a project of comparing and contrasting four different versions, all of them delicious and fitting the bill for a mango-orange sorbet and wonderful summer treat. As written, it had just enough cool to be refreshing and suggest a sorbet. Tried the FLV Pear variation with Polar Blast and although I wouldn't recommend buying that Pear, as it is an abomination, it made the sorbet texture even better. Spot on. Tried it as written with WS-23 as a 1:1 sub for Polar Blast and it was colder, smoother, and more satisfying, but the WS-23 seemed to damage or at least distract from the thickness you want in a sorbet; it became more of a slush. Tried the Pear version with WS-23 and this is what's up. That Pear gave it back what the WS-23 took away and created an amazing sorbet vape with body and chill. If you happen to have both FLV Pear and WS-23 in a 30% dilution, give that a try. Love it. Blood Orange and Mango (with peach to give it some volume) comes together so well, I hope to see more of that pairing. Well done!

If this were called Cinnamon Toast Crunch, I'd consider it a failure. But it promises Frosted Flakes with cinnamon and a splash of milk instead and it hits that mark more deliciously than any accurate CTC could, because Frosted Flakes with cinnamon and milk is just better than CTC. And it can be vaped all day, which is an accomplishment for any cinnamon vape. The only drawback I see here is that now I have to try all of Mr. Burgundy's breakfast bowl series.

Excellent recipe. Legit intricate cinnamon danish that comes together in just three days? That's a neat trick. Seems like it could even be a CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl killer with just another 0.05 to 0.1% more Rich Cinnamon, without out the blueberries. But the blueberries are the star here. They really do taste deliciously baked into a fresh pastry.

I went with the Brie booster and don't regret it. Love the cream cheese part. But I'm getting just a little plastic fume note from the cherries. Giving this 4 stars anyway because someone who isn't so sensitive to cherry awfulness might love it, and also because someone wants to make some some other fruit with cream cheese danish should give it a try as an example of how that's done, just swap the INW Cherries and Apricot for whatever else. And don't forget the Brie, it really works here.

This is a wonderful recipe that's butter-smooth and easy to vape. It's not as tobacco-forward as I expected given the references to Abuela but the Gold Ducat adds a fascinating sweet yet earthy and dark element to the mango/peach combo. It tastes like a formal evening event in tropical locale and I love it! Note: I didn't have a chance to try this until after it had steeped for 11 days, quite a bit longer than the 3 days recommended. So let it steep or YMMV.

I was skeptical of a few aspects of this recipe but gave it a shot anyway. I'm so glad I did. It might be too rich and sweet for ADV but over coffee or instead of dessert it's decadently delicious after a two-week steep. The sugary-ness is on point for a creme brulee and if you're the type to always add a little sweetener to your stuff regardless of the recipe, try this one without that: you get sugar lips without it. I get an almost boozy note from it and while that might be considered off for the profile. Update: Had to revise my review after vaping on it for bit. That slight tobacco note that Jerikorayne mentioned starts to gather on the palate over time. I still think this is a very good recipe, but I bet it could be improved by a little less of not only the INW Creme Brulee, but everything. I might mix it again with the flavors cut by 25% across the board and see if it's still as thick, sweet, and rich but without any distracting offness.

Excellent recipe! TFA Strawberry and TFA Coconut were in my very first DIY order of five flavors. TFA Watermelon was in the second order of five more flavors. Other strawberry, watermelon, and coconut flavors followed soon after. So, I made many variations of Tiger's Blood a long time ago, mostly tweaking others' recipes to try to improve them. More recently, I made a few fresh attempts at it because Graham said it would help make Jyroe shut up, somehow. None of them have been worth sharing, yet, this is much truer to the source material than Graham's recipe, and Jyroe has a reason to not shut up. Of all those Tiger's Bloods, this is the best. The use of TFA Coconut here is especially commendable because that is absolutely the right coconut for a Tiger's Blood shaved ice flavor. If you're trying to make an authentic Tiger's Blood snow cone vape without any TFA Coconut, you're doing it wrong. I wouldn't be surprised to learn that TFA Coconut is used to make the actual coconut snow cone syrup. There are indeed "better" coconut flavors out there, but this is the right one for this particular job. It's tricky because too much is suntan oil, though. Coconut Candy works to push that coconut flavor further without it getting weird, since it's another candy flavor and not a realistic coconut, which would be out of place. It might be a tenth of a percent or so too high for the hint of coconut in Tiger's Blood, but that's the only place I see room for improvement here. The added depth form the CAP Golden Pineapple is masterful. The strawberries are a good fit as well. PUR Watermelon seems like candy watermelon cheat mode. But I've used it in my recent attempts and still not reached this level of awesomeness. It tastes like a great deal of work went into this thing. My only real problem with it is that title is missing the possessive apostrophe. Tiger's Blood, not Tigers Blood. It's a shame because people might come to ATF searching for "Tiger's Blood" and not have this recipe pop up in the results.

The name is unfortunate, it's mildly disturbing to see anything after "Best Damn" that isn't "Pink Lemonade." However, I'll be damned if this isn't damn fine choco pudding. Thick & sweet with real pudding mouthfeel, full flavored even at just 5.36%, and hits the spot for a chocolate vape without too much tootsie roll taste. Tasting this at 10 days I can imagine it will only get even better with time, as chocolates do. Excellent recipe!

Pleasant AF! I had no idea TFA Peanut Butter could be made to taste so smooth and creamy after a steep. It loves to just dry out and turn to mud. Not so here; where it's peanut butter ice cream all day. Topping this delightfulness with lavender-infused marshmallow seems like a strange choice, but it works, very well. I was scared of the anise too - I hate the actual taste of it - but here it just seems to modify the lavender, which is comes across as just a floral hint, not as laundry soap or even full-on flowers but more of an exotic spice, and helps to make 2% TFA Marshmallow actually taste and feel like a marshmallow topping, which is an accomplishment.. It's a shame that all these "scary" ingredients will probably prevent all but a few brave souls from trying it. Those who pass it by are missing out on something amazing.

I've never had butter beer to judge whether this is the real deal, but it seems accurate to the rich, creamy, and sweet description given and even has a terrific thick-drink mouthfeel. Goes down velvety smooth and reminds me of something you'd get at Starbucks, but with vanilla cream soda instead of coffee. The only beef I have with it is the 0.5% Super Sweet. It leaves a Spenda-esque aftertaste that bugs me; I bet this would be even better with the Super Sweet reduced to 0.25 to 0.3%.

It's the Best Damn Grilled Stick. I think it's like chewing on skewer that had just been used to grill pineapples and then to toast marshmallows. But, the thing is, that's actually a lot more enjoyable than it might sound. Warm and woody, sweet and tart, and all-in-all a pleasant, interesting, vape. Good by ordinary standards, gorgeous given the short time for development and five-ingredient restriction it was created under.

For something pretty far outside of my usual interest (Clove & Tobacco?) I found this hugely enjoyable. That's quite an accomplishment. Everything here seems to be fine-turned to just the right levels to work together. Burley and Cured is tobacco cheat code but I can imagine combining them with Oak Wood and it seems like no easy thing to get that to come out as woodsy tobacco and not wood + tobacco, if that makes sense. Clove is generally one of my least favorite flavors to vape but it doesn't feel out of place or overdone. Finally, that bit o' honey on the end there. Very satisfying, it really is a nice little touch of honey and not some floral nonsense. I don't have any suggestions for improving this. There doesn't seem to be any room for improvement. I think we have a winner here.

Give this about week to steep. It develops into a wonderfully woodsy warm vanilla tobacco that's remarkably full-flavored for such low %s used.

I can definitely enjoy this Morning Wood all day.

This makes for a terrific vape. Lemon Tea, Hibiscus, and the two berries are balanced precisely.. I'm going to go ahead and give this five stars because the only two recommendations I have to improve the experience are very subjective and already addressed in the notes as options. 1) Less Super Sweet. I went ahead and used the 0.5% in the recipe. Don't do that. Eliminating it is an option but I think just cutting it in half will most likely be just right for this recipe and also get rid of that lingering fake sweetener aftertaste. 2) Definitely add your coolant of choice. It's a wonderful fit with this. I just added a few drops of WS-23 and it was so refreshing.

Mixed this up looking for something to do with that incredible PUR Watermelon. Accidentally forgot about it for a month. While I'm sure it's very tasty after a short steep, it doesn't hold up well over time. Something, I'm guessing the meringue, gives it a kind of warm cheesy off-note. Also the fruits are indistinct, melded together, not necessary a bad thing, just an observation. Would try this again without the meringue or without such a long steep.

It's melonious, it's funky, I really dig it. It gets five stars for accuracy, flavor, and pleasantly scratching my WS-23 itch. It delivers, as advertised, a sweet, juicy, rich, not-your-average cantaloupe flavor. I think this praise needs to come with a caveat, though: This melon is ripe AF. Some will taste it as overly ripe, I'm afraid. If you want some crunch or snap from your cantaloupe, the idea of a mushy melt-in-your-mouth version yucks you out, and you're sensitive to the sometimes cloyingly funkiness of fully ripened melons, it might be a recipe for you to pass over. But if "that almost custardy thick note that a really ripe cantaloupe" has is your jam, I say waste no time in getting it mixed up.

It tastes like this mixer was dissatisfied by the standalone flavor of CAP Sweet Lychee, set out to add things to it to make it as good as he possibly could, and definitely succeeded.

So glad this recipe was remembered! I taste something like a soft, cakey cookie with pumpkin-spice frosting. It's undoubtedly autumnal without being so terribly in-your-face with the spices, and both gentle and interesting enough to vape all day. Neither dry nor soggy with the spice bakery notes, just enough richness, a smooth vape, and nothing that tastes weird, out of place, or in need of adjustment. All harmony and balance. I could not ask for anything more out of a recipe with "fall" in the name. Something about this is also delightfully feminine. The way it's lightly flavored without being under-flavored, maybe. It's delicate, but not weak. I feel like I'm vaping a woman's take on what a fall flavor should be. It takes me back to happy moment in time that occurred in autumn and involved fall flavors, and then it's gone and I'm reminded of how much I miss that moment, and my heart breaks a little. That is a major compliment to the recipe. It's complex yet free of distraction, and vague enough to be open to interpretation, so it encourages making your own connections. It makes me wonder what autumn memories it might awaken in others.

This is a Swisher Sweet. I know there's not a Swisher straight raspberry (the closest is raspberry-grape), but if there was one, this would be it. I very much enjoyed the experience. Can't think of anything I'd do to try to improve it. I did noticed that some of the flavors here didn't seem to melt together perfectly. Although all of the flavors were always present, some hits were much more ashy, others much more fruity, and some were much sweeter, almost dessert-like. I don't know if that should be considered a bug. It kinda kept it interesting and fun in a never know what you're gonna get way.

The point of forcing this into existence was to push ConcreteRiver over the edge once and for all with this ridiculous profile. But as they tend to do, my evil scheme backfired. The only one it drove crazy was me, trying to figure out how it might be possible to do this better. I can't, not with any confidence anyway. While technically very impressive, the only reason I'm not completely in love with this juice is maybe this profile just isn't something that lends itself to vaping particularly well, but we all know whose fault that is. For a trip, give someone else this to vape and walk through a cloud of it. Even the room note is like lifting the cover off of a plate of grilled peach halves with something like mascarpone and honey filling the craters in them. That cream with honey drizzle topping is the best part because it's just perfect, but the peaches work, too. I'm done betting against this guy. Even when he loses, he wins.

Holy hell, this stuff is off the charts!!! Fear showed this recipe to me Saturday night and I'm vaping it now with about a 24 hour steep. At the time, I had no description at all, only the recipe. The feedback I gave him before he published it is suspiciously close to the description. "It tastes like one of those rare occasions when we get winter-esque weather for Thanksgiving. That's how perfect for fall it is... Doesn't really come across as a 'tobacco' juice to me but rather something more abstract... It's like a manly, outdoorsy cinnamon bakery... Like going dove or quail hunting on a crisp fall morning and stopping to snack on a still-warm cinnamon bun that was packed for you.. Feels weird vaping this and looking down to see a black t-shirt and not red flannel... I'm not saying it tastes like a cinnamon bun, I'm saying it tastes like all of that put together. The red flannel shirt, the shotgun hunting, the fall, the morning, the fresh cinnabunn, the fact that someone (little lady) packed it for you, it tastes like all of that... Unless it steeps into something unpleasantly weird after five or six days and doesn't come back to being amazing after two weeks, stop fucking with it... I think I love you." Those were my exact words, with ellipsis representing breaks when I stopped messaging him to suck down some more Pheasant Ridge and leaving out some boring discussion about the rise and fall of CAP CDS. Anyway. Abuela, Cardinal, and now this. Marry me, Fear. We'll make beautiful recipes together and live happy ever after.

This is pretty good stuff. I've tried neither the Marshmallow Man nor any purported clones of it, but I have no trouble believing this is an improvement on all of those. The TFA VBIC and CAP Sugar Cookie taste like excellent choices to give that marshmallow some thickness and texture. I think it's successful for what it is. I'm really on the fence here between 4 and 5 stars and the only reason I'm going with 4 is because the Super Sweet tastes like a bit much on the end, it goes from merely carrying the flavor on the tongue and giving a little sugar lips to "Here's a tasty marshmallow... and a pinch of Splenda." It's still a tasty recipe, but that keeps it out of ADV territory. Of note, I didn't add the Holy Vanilla but I wish I had, I think it would have taken up a notch marshmallow with light vanilla to a full-on vanilla marshmallow.

This should be called “F’n Delicious Perfect Mouthfeel Vanilla Custard.” Wonderful custard recipe that’s very interesting and tastes like a bowl of fancy restaurant vanilla custard with some homemade vanilla whipped cream on top. Amazing smoothness that just rolls off the palate. But it shouldn’t have references to pumpkin or pie anywhere in the description. There’s no spice beyond what you might call the spice from the vanilla. No one would add that silky pumpkin pie filling to a custard without adding spice, that’s just silly. Add any amount of FLV Pumpkin Spice to this from 0.25% to 0.75% and you’ve probably got yourself a perfect Pumpkin Custard. Add some crust like FA Apple Pie and you’ve got a Pumpkin Custard Pie. It is a bit too sucralosy to me but that’s just so subjective, YMMV. I wouldn’t recommend leaving it out, but maybe reducing it to somewhere between a 0.25 and 0.4% would cut down on that Splenda aftertaste.

This is a tasty, interesting recipe. I’ve never had a fried pumpkin fritter but it seems to hit the profile right. Rich fried doughy taste with pumpkin, cinnamon, and vanilla. I do think there’s a small room for improvement though. There’s a slight sourness here even with the steep and it think it’s from the CDS and the way the CDS is reacting to either the Pumpkin Pie or the high % of Zeppola. This probably could be improved with FLV Rich Cinnamon instead of CDS, and then coming back and making up those missing bready notes with some Sugar Cookie or Biscuit. Overall though, this seems like a great idea pretty well executed and it’s worth a mix just to have something seasonal and somewhat familiar, yet different.

DO NOT MIX. Here's what I think happened: I think Chris was putting the ingredients in for this and accidentally switched the %ages for CAP Sweet Cream and FW Vanilla Bean Ice Cream. A simple mistake, it happens. And I think it might be a tasty recipe with those %s swapped.. A little Lemon Sicily seems like it would be an excellent accent to TFA Pom. But, as written with 6% CAP Sweet Cream and 1.25% FW VBIC, I found this to be disgusting; it tastes like pomegranate bubblegum bits suspended in putrid margarine. There's no way the creator of the most popular recipe of all time, Sugar Cookies & Cream, as well as various other excellent recipes, did this on purpose.

This is some tasty juice! I really enjoyed the way you get each of the three parts separately; the tangy Pom, the dark earthy sweet Blueberry, and especially the smooth, satisfying vanilla finish. I'm surprised and delighted that the two syrupy fruits had some nice separation. Can't find anything as far as room for improvement, this just tastes well-crafted to me. The only reservation I have about highly recommending it is that think you have to like blueberries in general and FW Blueberry in particular to appreciate it. It is probably not going to magically make you like blueberries. But if you're a blueberry fan, dig in! Thanks for the great vape Dr. Doob!

This is yummy. Pomegranate-Blueberry is an excellent fruit blend that made for an enjoyable vape, so that's where the five stars are coming from. That said, I'm disappointed that I'm not getting any apple for this. I wouldn't know it was in there if I hadn't mixed it myself. I'm sure it's working behind the scenes to help make this so tasty, but Apple is the A in APB and I'd love to really taste it. Please note, I didn't SNV this. I didn't get a chance to try it until it had already steeped for 4 to 5 days. So it might be there in a fresh mix.

My palate rejects the premise that In Godda Da Vida was missing anything at all. In fact I consider that assertion to be something akin to heresy or sacrilege. However, this made for a slightly different and equally delicious vape as Godda, with the Sweet Mango blending in and sweetening and ripening the Papaya part. It makes me want to play around with adding a little summin summin to Godda as well, something I previously would not have entertained, as it seems like desecrating a DIY treasure. So this recipe is either inspirational or a bad influence, depending on your point of view. But the bottom line is that it's a helluva great vape.

Mixed 8/1, vaped 10/31. I built up a ton of anticipation and high expectations steeping this for so long, so that's probably where one of the possible 5 stars went. It's not fair, as it would be nigh impossible to reach such a high bar, but there it is. The other star was stolen by INW Creme Brulee used in excess. It tastes too burnt to me up that high, I would even describe it as acrid. Even with such a long steep? Especially with such a long steep. It seems to get stronger over time. It made it hard to enjoy this recipe. However, I LOVE the idea of a darkly sweet, smoked custard and would jump to try a revised version. I'm not sure whether the rest of the recipe would require rebalancing without trying it first, it probably would, but I feel like just cutting the Creme Brulee in half would go a long way toward making this recipe a winner.

This is the highest I've ever found CAP Super Sweet to be enjoyable, but it is very enjoyable here, and I'll be damned if that doesn't taste just like a Jolly Rancher watermelon gummy. Excellent recipe!

Well that is simply delicious. And why wouldn't it be? I mean, just look at the ingredients. The way they come together here is very interesting; I get individual aspects of mango/peach and strawberry/mixed berry that are intertwined without being combined and nothing remotely unpleasant or out of place.

Oh man, the combination of Toffee (and toffee enhancers) + tobaccos (that dynamic duo of Burley and Cured, along with the Tantanka) here is everything I hoped it would be and more! I skipped the S&V option on this one but let it steep 14 days to make sure the tobaccos had time to come back from that weird little vacation they like to take from days 4ish to 12ish. Perfection. I wasn't in a hurry to try this one until after I fell hard in love with Fear's Pheasant Ridge recipe; it convinced me to trust his judgment when it comes to FLV Toffee. You're next, Prapple Bacco!

If you're a tobacco lover who tried Tripoli and thought it needed bolder, truer tobacco notes and more spice, you'll probably love this one. If you prefer dessert vapes and thought Tripoli was too spicy and not sweet enough, you probably won't.

I hate this recipe, because I hate fruitcake, and this tastes like a fruitcake. I think if you're some kind of weirdo and actually like fruitcake, you'll love it. Somehow the spice and cherry in Cavendish seem to be pulled out or amplified by the other flavors so they leave the tobacco behind to become part of a spice blend. Cookie ingredients become too soft for that, the closest it gets to cookie is maybe the outside of a dark spicy cake, all the surfaces that touched the pan. Neither fully separated into layers nor fully blended together into one thing, various fruity, spicy, and bakery flavors seem to come and go all willy nilly, so it not only has fruitcake flavor, it works like one too, in that there are lots of bits of dried fruit in here, but you don't necessarily get all of them, with the exception of orange zest, in every bite. That's cool. As for the spices, I would call this definitively cloven and orange-zested. There's much more going on spice-wise but they stand out less than those two and just come across to me as a undefined spicy complexity. There's some considerable sweetness here but not beyond what fits the profile.

Recipe is pretty terrible, TBH. FLV Fig does not fit here at all; the dark musky flavor clashes hard with the watermelon. However, I think swapping the FLV Fig out for FA Fresh Fig would be all one would need to do to turn this bad recipe into a good and possibly even great one. What we've got here is simply a bad case of wrong fig for the job.

This is already a great vape. I certainly am not sorry I mixed it and will be happily finishing my 40ml. But there's room for improvement in the fig: FLV Fig (0.75%ish) would be so much better instead of CAP Fig here. Its boldness would stand up better to the high % of Toasted Marshmallow, its muskiness would enhance the rather light tobacco notes, its darkness would be a much better fit for that awesome description of FIg's existential crisis.

I love the idea of this one and it's not terrible to vape, but the bright, fresh, and almost floral qualities of the FA Fig Fresh is really clashing with otherwise nice Kentucky-Catalan combo for me. This tastes like it would be much better with a darker, slightly musky fig, specifically CAP Fig, but not FLV Fig because that would be going to far and competing with the Catalan spices.

Pretty tasty vape, if you like these CAP ingredients, as I do, but a bit muddled. Also, not quite an accurate clone. The Maple Syrup is out of place and it's not a very good flavor anyway; I would not recommend buying it if you haven't already. Just mix this up without it. Would probably be just as good if not better without the Marshmallow as well.

Outstanding sweet, rich, buttery almond cookie! Should have made a bigger batch, I absolutely love this stuff. If you have WF Almond Cookie and have been wondering what to do with it or how to make it better, this is the answer. It has, as stated, just the right balance between dry and moist for a homemade type of cookie with almond inside and out, not one of those dried out crumbly ones. I recommend steeping longer than the 3 days suggested by the creator to let the nail polish remover off-note from Vienna Cream fully steep out. I accidentally waited 19 days but 5 to 7 should do it.

Excellent combination of flavors and use of Maple Syrup! I just have a couple of nitpicky issues with this one. The high % of FLV Cookie Dough is giving me too much raw dough flavor almost to the point of a maple cookie dough versus a baked cookie. It's both a profile accuracy and a taste thing. I love soft, slightly undercooked cookies but I'm sure this recipe would be better with 4/2 Sugar Cookie/Cookie Dough instead of 3/3. Second, the sucralose, and I know this is highly subjective, but the 0.5% that works in some other recipes is coming across as too much here. It tastes "tacked on" rather than the integrated into the juice, so the final impression it leaves is less sugary maple cookie and more maple cookie followed by a half a teaspoon of Splenda. Not sure how much would work better, 0.25%? 0.35%? But less.

This is a masterpiece. On the first few draws I didn't care for it, I found it too floral and even almost medicinal. But before I needed to redrip, I was in love. It doesn't taste like grape and plum mixed together, it just tastes purple. Purple on a thick bed of fluffy white slightly vanilla-flavored creamy serenity. And while all that healing stones nonsense is bull, there is such a thing as healing flavors, and that's what this is. It's calming and meditative -- everything promised in the description is delivered. Think partly cloudy purple sunset in bottle. Beautiful recipe.

This is a tasty recipe. Does Juicy Peach really do some magic on Sweet Raspberry? Yes it does. I don't even think 6% Sweet Raz would be palatable without it, so that's a pretty damn neat trick. Sharing this trick is a special kind of community service for people who don't have access to better Blue Raz flavors such as OSDIY's Blue Raz Slushy. It doesn't really taste as "blue" as I want it too, but it's quite bit better than TFA and FW Blue Raz flavors.

Beautiful combination of ingredients but but that Maple is way too much for me. It gets almost sickeningly sweet yet also a little dry up that high. Cut the maple in half or so to calm that down and let more of the bakery come out, and this almost certainly be a five-star recipe.

Somewhere between a Snowball and Hostess Cupcake sounds about right to me, though the coconut is a little toasty and the Snowball's coconut flakes are raw. The overall amount of coconut is too light for a Snowball but I can definitely taste it. I'm sorry for anyone who can't because it's very nice. Regardless, it's a nice chocolate cake that even has that mass-produced Hostess flavor, with a fluffy cream filling. Sometimes you just have to stop worrying about what it is just worry about how it tastes. It tastes great. Since I find Lava Cake basically has no cake at all and is pretty much a hot fudge sundae topping flavor (a yummy one at that), I'd been wondering how it would react to having some JF Yellow Cake added to it. I appreciate this answering that question; it makes a Hostess chocolate cupcake flavor.

Super enjoyable! It tastes a lot like what I remember Chimes ginger-mango candy tasting like. It's mouthwatering just like them, too. The ginger is definitely not a ginger ale type, a dry powdered ginger, or a fresh ginger, it's a lot more like Gin Gins or other ginger candies, which makes for a great vape. It also seems to be obliterating everything I don't like about CAP Sweet Mango, which some help from the FLV Mango and the Honeysuckle, but mostly it's the ginger doing that. It seems like an important discovery, learning that a little ginger can clean up that horribly overripe mango. I like how CAP Sweet Mango rides lower in the recipe instead of just sitting on top and pulls FLV down with it. Cactus of course helps make it juicy and fortunately I get that but don't get any of the Cactus taste, so that was clearly used here with great success here. I did not get much discrete honeysuckle flavor from it. I'm sure it wouldn't be the same or as good without it, but it seems to get overwhelmed by the sweet and syrupy ginger and mango. I do get a bit of honey but it still seems more like one of those candy chews than a "nectar." Which isn't a problem for me at all, I love those things. I almost took it down to 4 stars for being called nectar and not really seeming nectarty, and the honey drizzle on top actually seeming out of place with everything else, but it's just so darn tasty and that mango + ginger thing worked terrifically. 4.5 stars?

This came out lovely. I get clearly defined layers of juicy kiwi, unique pastry reminiscent of a doughy pie crust, and a sweet-but-slightly tangy cream. I'm not really tasting pineapple but the kiwi definitely seems improved - moistened, sweetened, tarted up - by it. Something is giving it a cooked feel as if baked in a tart and I dig it. Other than it being described as a pineapple tart and the pineapple having faded into merely a kiwi modifier after a long steep, I can't find anything to complain about here. Lots of recipes promise layers but actually just taste like most of the flavors are blended together. This one, however, delivers. And there's something special about that Apple Pie/Zeppola tart crust combo.

I initially mixed this recipe on 12/8. On the 3-day steep recommended, I thought it tasted like a terrifically accurate representation of a coconut macaroon. Unfortunately for me, it reminded me that I don't really like coconut macaroons all that much, but that's no fault of the recipe, I just am not a huge fan of the things. 5 stars for accuracy, though from this mixer that's no surprise. I set it aside with the intention of writing a review for it later, got busy with other things, and forgot about it. Tried it again 1/22 and wow has it changed. Much of the coconut has faded and a strong caramel flavor has come out. A delicious, strong caramel flavor. I love this stuff now. Also worth noting, it tastes like all it would need is a touch of the right chocolate flavor or flavors to become a Samoa cookie recipe, for anyone who might be chasing that.

This combination of Sweet Coconut, Vanilla Pudding, and Whipped Cream is just perfect for a coconut pudding pie. If there were a compelling reason why this had to be an all-FLV recipe, this would be a 5-star recipe. If there were a contest recipe and had to be all-FLV, I think it would win. But with so many other options for cookie crust, why? FLV Cookie as no crunch, and the slight maple note it has a short steep comes out even more after steeping this for six weeks and really distracts from that wonderful coconut cream pudding. I want to try this again using something like a combination of CAP Sugar Cookie and FA Cookie for the crust, or maybe scrapping the cookie idea completely and going for a nice graham crust.

DECADENCE. When I first tried this recipe it had only a few days to steep and I liked it, but didn't think it was anything super special. Today I come back to it after a six week steep and it's just wonderfully rich buttery decadence. It's astounding how sweet it has become without any added sweetener. While I agree with the 3-star reviewer that a touch of some nut might help with authenticity on the browning, it seems to have the perfect amount of butteryness, very rich and not at all light, but also not overbearing. And authenticity kinda goes out the window when you taste something this good. I want to keep on vaping it and then mix some more for another long steep. Thanks for a great vape!

I like it a lot. My favorite thing about it is that instead of going for the more obvious TFA Marshmallow or TFA Vanilla Swirl, CAP Vanilla Custard was used to thicken it further than Jelly Candy can. It really makes for a satisfying vape. I will probably steal this use of 1% Vanilla Custard. I think I’d like it even more if it had a little more punch to the lemon - either a little more LA Lemonade and a little less Jelly Candy, or the addition of another, sharper Lemon, just a touch... or maybe if it used FLV Lemonade instead of LoraAnn’s. Regardless, this is a nice recipe and I’m very glad I mixed it up.

If you've ever found a coffee recipe you truly enjoyed, you'll probably love this one. If you never have, maybe you'll enjoy this one. It has come the closest for me to date, but still isn't quite there. I love the very original profile idea here, and I get 100% of everything promised in a recipe that tries very hard to be very delightful. Unfortunately, I'm also picking up just a touch of something else that spoils the experience for me, even after a six-week steep (I first tried it at 3 days as recommended, then set it aside hoping that something would steep out). It's a funky off note that's like trying to indulge in my eggnog coffee and donut in the living room while someone has burnt popcorn in the kitchen and someone else as run over a skunk a block or two down the road. It's hard to really luxuriate in anything with your senses being even gently assaulted by that. I'd like more people to try this recipe as written so I can more accurately assess just how damaged I am when it comes to coffee flavors.

"Salted" is a misnomer; don't try this expecting salt and be disappointed. But it is tasty, simple caramel pecan praline mix. That FW "Salted" Caramel and FW Pralines & Cream makes a terrific pairing and Holy Vanilla fits in perfectly here and finishes that pairing off. I can imagine it being a bit dry and unsatisfying without it. The result is a little vanilla forward for an actual, authentic praline but makes for a great vape if you love vanilla. You get the drier pecan notes on top, followed by a rich caramel-cream body, and then a sweet dark and slightly malty smooth vanilla finish. And yes, I'm already playing with adding tobaccos to this and to the FLV Milk Chocolate version, which makes for a super yummy simple turtle at just 0.25% added to the recipe. Once again Coop proves you don't need a handful of ingredients to make a great juice, just an inspired pairing and a little finishing touch or two.

Stellar recipe. This promises a heaping plate of pancakes covered in blueberry syrup and boy does it deliver! I get exactly that, a gooey syrupy slightly buttery blueberry bite and a soft fluffy bakery. This belongs in a textbook under how-to mix with both the VT Golden Syrup and the WF Crepe. I can't say this recipe needs any tweaks at all, but because I personally get tired of tasting blueberry over time, I'm interested in trying the rest of the recipe out with other fruit flavors that are already a little syrupy. INW Shisha Strawberry is the first one that comes to mind, probably at that same 2%. It's certainly not necessary for enjoying the recipe, but I might also like to experiment with "cooking" these flapjacks a little longer by adding something like 1% or less CAP Sugar Cookie or Cereal 27, or if I wanted to really go after crispy-edged pancakes, maybe a 0.5% or less addition of FA Cookie.

The air is filled with birdsong and flowers burst from newly verdant meadows. Spring is off to a beautiful start, and ConcreteRiver drops one of the most autumnal recipes I've ever tried. Makes sense. Although it couldn't be more out-of-season, it's a deliciously warm apple cider with rich, creamy pudding, as promised, and I think it's one of the more interesting and unusual-yet-addictive recipes to be shared by anyone in too long. The hops just completes that cider and while the pudding looks like it might clash badly, instead it just makes for fascinating contrast and satisfying vape. I'll have to mix another bottle after the first frost.

I was previously certain that any attempt to make an identifiable amount of Cactus work in a tobacco was going to come out tasting like grasshopper spit. I was wrong. It's odd, but it's fun and I definitely dig it. Cactus in a tobacco, and it actually works. Mind blown. I love how you get the cactus juiciness sort of separate from the tobacco, so there's mouthwatering juiciness here but yet it somehow still feels like a dried tobacco. It's not soggy like I'd expected. I don't want to even think of the abominations that must have been tried over the past year or so leading up to this wonderful, weird little recipe.

Sure, there are a lot of different directions this could be taken in. Some vanilla might be nice. Some ginger or cinnamon to complement both the peaches and the Virginia. Something to make it a little more moist. But I also like it just the way it is. I like how the peach is both subtle and natural. Though it tastes like a fruity cigar, it tastes like a fancy fruity cigar and not some bottom-shelf blunt.

Love this. I pick up passionfruit first and foremost, without getting any throat pain from the stuff; seems the secret is to keep it under 1% and mix other things light with it so it still stands out, and also pair it up with things that enhance it. Lots of hibiscus here but the floral stays below the level of getting perfumy, just right for the hibiscus tea profile, and then there's lemongrass with some added citrus that seems to fit in wonderfully with the passionfruit and lemon grass without calling too much attention to itself. Nothing is sticking out as out of place, despite what looks like a whole list of difficult ingredients with the exception of CAP Hibiscus, the only one I see here that I know is forgiving and easy to work with. Rich Cinnamon to give it the earthy warmth of an herbal tea without really tasting of cinnamon? Genius. It's light and refreshing, easy on the palate, but plenty flavorful despite the low total flavoring %. And it has a surprising amount of body to it, it's not a thin, top-heavy vape.

Lucky me got to preview this wildly creative recipe. The detailed description doesn't lie and doesn't leave much else to say, but... I think it tastes like the name, specifically it tastes like taking sips of a hoppy IPA with an unlit cigarette dangling from your mouth, at a bar, in front of an ashtray. It’s an ambitious profile that’s been well-done, in my opinion. I get a mostly pine and citrus inhale and followed by a hops and mixed citrus top of the exhale, with a layer of cigarette-style tobacco coming in underneath. The hops is bold but balanced with the citrus, while the cigarette layer is coming in much softer, which is probably a smart approach here as too much boldness in this sort of tobacco could get unpleasant, I imagine. The tail of the vape finishes with that tobacco building a bit, without the piney tangy taste ever fully disappearing. Can a tobacco be called wet and refreshing? I think it can, in this case. It might appeal to anyone who smoked those Camel Twista Lime cigarettes and remembers them fondly. I think it will probably appeal to mixers looking for any cigarette-style tobacco, or something fun to do with Yakima Hops, and to people looking for something that's definitely different, yet oddly wonderful. Could this be 2018's Grack Juice? I think it might.

Really jumped into that April Fool's theme with both feet, huh? Despite the gross name, I actually liked it, but it's still pretty weird. My first impression was that this tastes like prune juice with chunks of creamy cheese and some honey in it. That impression hasn't changed much after vaping more of it and trying to dissect it, but it's nowhere near as bad as that sounds, actually pretty enjoyable. I get the honey, especially in the finish and aftertaste, but the combination of fig and apple up top, along with honey that makes an appearance there, really gives me a prune juice effect. It's very sweet, and what little pepper I get seems to help offset that, so it might be essential to this not becoming yucky - becoming too musty and sweet at the same time - I don't know. It seems out of sorts with the rest here, just making it all to busy. I wonder what it would be like without the Black Pepper and without the Super Sweet. Would you still get that lingering honey sweetness or does it require the Super Sweet to do that? If this could work without the Super Sweet, it might not need the Pepper. If it relies on it for the honey to work, then maybe it does need both, and it just is what it is. The creamy cheese underneath is working, I like it.It does taste like Brie, and I love Brie with fruit and have no issue with vaping it when it's well-done like this. I want a baked brie and cranberry vape now, someone needs to make that for me because as badly as I want it, I equally don't also want to vape failed attempts at it.

I think you have to let go of the idea that this is supposed to taste like anything to really appreciate it. Is it a realistic mango or mango juice? No, everything here is a bit artificial and candyish. Is it a mango candy? Not quite, it's a little bit too much like an *almost* overripe fruit, got just a bit too much funk on it, to taste like any kind of candy I've ever known, and the tangerine stands out quite a bit. But if you think of it as supposed to taste like a rapidly pinkening orange tropical sunset shared by sweethearts, we have a winner. I get tangerine right up front and on top, separate from the rest, and it wakes up the senses. It's a bit intense after every redrip but calms down more with each drag. The rest of the vape is this a candy sweet yet tropically funky thing that shifts. It briefly starts out more tart and pink, less like citrus and more like underripe berry or slightly sour grape, and then rapidly gains a thicker orange tropical and very sweet sweetness that's almost like chewing on a juicy tropical mostly mango bubblegum. I dig this, and this is coming from someone who actually hates CAP Sweet Mango standalone and in other mixes at such a high %, because I think it tastes like overripe, bordering on rotten, fruit. It seems that while tangerine stays separate, the tarter part of Sweet Guava does a great job of cleaning that mess up. If so, it's another concentrate to add to the list of things that can do that (CAP Jelly Candy also seems to help with this, absorbing that overripeness like a sin eater). Cantaloupe might be helping as well, I don't know. I don't taste a distinct cantaloupe here, just a juicer body that I don't think can be accounted for by the other ingredients. It manages to be both thick and juicy and avoid that funny sort of dryness that vaping too much CAP Sweet Mango for too long will give you, that cotton candy type of dryness. I want to mix it again with some coolant added to see if it can help with the way something this sweet gets to be a bit much in the summer heat (it's in the upper 90s here and it's not even June yet! that makes things cloying that wouldn't be in cooler weather). Can't be sure that it won't water down the vape and ruin that thick juicy juicy, but there's only one way to find out.

This is nice! It’s the best thing I’ve had with koolada in it in a really long time. It’s making this very refreshing, and the sort of artificiality of it actually seems to fit well with the profile. I don’t really taste any of these fruits in particular, more just a juicy interesting tropical fruit addition to bubblegum. It tastes like the color pinkish orange made in to a vape. The flavor is a bit odd with the mix of tropical fruitiness and classic pink gum together, but it’s dig-ably odd, not ew yuck odd. Mouthfeel is working for me as it’s thick yet juicy, kind of like gum, with a smooth texture. The one thing I might try, not saying this would definitely be an improvement but it might be worth a try, is adding some CAP Sweet Guava or replacing the JF Honey Peach with CAP Sweet Guava. That one’s always given me a kind of bubblegummy vibe and it might be a good fit for a tropical fruit gum, while the bit of tartness it has could make the whole thing seem more mouthwatering and juicy and less sticky sweet.

This is phenomenally tasty. I wouldn't call it especially authentic to anything, since I've never had a melon gum that also contained that classic pink bubblegum flavor, but hardly matters because that mixed melon/bubblegum flavor is just so great together on top. Watermelon and bubblegum forward with just the bit of honeydew and cantaloupe behind it. It tastes like an excellent harnessing of the base from FLV Cantaloupe where it does that thing where it's almost creamy but in an entirely non-dairy way.

I've never tried Mike's Melons, having tried TFA Mango and TFA Papaya individually, it didn't look like something I wanted to try with those mixed together at such high %s. On one hand, I can't imagine this not being an improvement on the original. However, the papaya is overpowering here. I like TFA Papaya in moderation but it is a bully. I'm not really getting any cantaloupe, I'm not sure what TFA Mango is bringing to the table, and the little hint of strawberry is a tad waxy. Seems like a step in the right direction but more steps are needed - try even less papaya, a brighter strawberry, and something like FLV Cantaloupe and FLV Mango that will stand out against both if you really want a Papaya-Mango-Cantaloupe-Strawberry vape.

This is coming across as terribly soapy to me. However, it should be noted that that's quite likely mostly my own damage and is not the mixers' fault. I've found that most of the time when I try someone else's recipe as written with TFA Honeydew, I get a hint of some soap, but then when I go back and mix it again with half as much Honeydew, the soap is gone. So maybe forget about the soap part, that's just me. But it's also an overpowering amount of honeydew. I'm not really getting any cantaloupe flavor. Just a very forward ripe honeydew with a crisper honeydew behind it, with some milky cream underneath. I must say, that cream is nice. I might like to come back and try this again with both of the honeydews cut in half to see if cantaloupe shines though and tastes good. Even if it doesn't, it should be worth a mix just to enjoy that cream base again and give some more thought to stealing/adapting it to other fruit and cream recipes.

Love this. I'm not sure that "cantaloupe" belongs in the description as I'm not picking it up at all under everything else going on here, at least not as a cantaloupe or even a generic melon, though I'm sure it's making a difference in the thick texture here. I'd knock off a star for missing cantaloupe if it were in the title, but can't be too mad about it only being in the description. I do get a blood orange and mango SORBET though - and that use of CAP Lemon Lime to make a sorbet out of it is working so much better than I imagined. VT Shisha Mango as a single flavor gives me a super ripe mango flavor that's kind of ruined by bit of a piney green peel note that I can see causing problems in a lot of recipes, but not this one. Here that green thing it seems to be covered well by the brighter citrus top notes or sort of folded in to the earthy sweetness that separates a blood orange from an orange, or both, or something like that. Whatever, it works. Tastes like a sorbet made out of a real, well-ripened mango. Nothing seems off about it even using flavors with notorious off notes. No waxiness from the Juicy Orange, for example. Some throat, but less that I'd expected from all the citrus in here. Terrific mix. I wonder how it would do with some coolant to really make it scream sorbet...

This is indeed a chewy mango-melon candy vape with a sweet, soft finish. All the mouthfeels. Tried it on an overnight steep and the top notes were coming across a bit perfumey to me. Like, not an offensive grandma's perfume type of perfume. More like an exotic tropical perfume. If you were wearing this perfume, I'd totally make out with you. It was not so much floral as just over-aggressive, perhaps seeming more so because it was contrasted by that thick but softer-flavored base. After steeping for a week they calm down quite a bit and that base thickens even more, and I'm in love. STEEP THIS FOR A WEEK. It tastes like what I imagine someone would think the picture tastes like if they didn't know what the picture actually was (it's a Mango!Mango! gummy from Trader Joes, FYI).

This is a bit too weird for me. Even knowing looking at the ingredients, and knowing who made it so I was coming into it expecting weird, it's too weird. If all the cantaloupe did was fold into to the mango up top and lend some of it's creaminess to the mango it would probably work better, but I'm getting too much melon flavor coming through and the toasted part of toasted marshmallow is just too odd following behind that. It gives the impression of a toasted cantaloupe which is just... no. No, thank you. Leave the cantaloupe raw please. Add to that the warmth from the KB, and it's just not for me. Points for creativity and yes, if I force myself to mentally separate the top notes (Mango, Cantaloupe) from the bottom (sexy KM/TB) the components are individually delicious, but I don't want to even vape them back to back in different RDAs, much less in the same bottle of juice.

This is magnificent. It tastes like Cookie Butter Ice Cream, but with the ice cream removed and replaced with a rich, warm, buttery vanilla custard. It's so satisfying! The only drawback I could find is that all of the spice notes could be turned down just a little. They're a bit high for cookie butter ice cream, or even just cookie butter without ice cream. A case could be made for authenticity for some kind of cookie butter custard, as a warm custard would certainly enhance the spice notes in there. And when only enjoying it a little at a time, it really doesn't matter, because it is just plain delicious. But those spices kind of build on the palate for me so unless I put it down and vape something else for a bit, they start to overwhelm the custard with nutmeg and ginger a little. Definitely not an all-day vape for me because of that, but absolutely wonderful as a short-term treat just the way it is. Probably shouldn't be ADV-ing all that FA Butter anyway (it tastes too good to be good for you), so maybe it's for the best that the spice notes serve as a reminder to take a break from it now and then.

Wowzers! I'm kind of a novice when it comes to tobaccos and although I've loved Black for Pipe for some time, this is my first encounter with both Absolute Cuban Cigar and DNB. I had no idea what to expect. I was worried that it might even taste like licking an ashtray. It does not. It's rich and satisfying and just right. It's everything that CBV's description and Hash's, LimeDrive's, and Ebc88's reviews say it is. There's really nothing I can add that those four haven't already said. I need to have this mixed up at all times, at higher nic level than I usually vape, just in case I decide to go out drinking. I can't even imagine a better vape for that. Fucking Bravo!

It’s juicy and refreshing and I really appreciate the way it combines both a sweet melon flavor and a creamy dairy milk, like a honeydew milk smoothie. Mixing melons and milk can be dangerous, that's a combination that can go south real easy in my experience, but it works well here. At the suggested steep time, I'm getting plenty of honeydew flavor and a milky creaminess coming in underneath, which the slightest hint of vanilla. Not tasting any cantaloupe or strawberry but I'm sure they're contributing to the body and sweetness.

Very nice! Wild Melon is full-flavored without any off notes, a mostly honeydew mix of delicious melons. FLV Cream is the one cream I wouldn't hesitate to mix with melons because it has that creamy feel without really tasting of dairy or vanilla. Fluffed up a bit and sweetened with Cotton Candy it's even better. Cactus 0.25% doesn't always work to just juice things up without making its presence known but it does here. Altogether, a great, satisfying simple recipe. Thanks for this! I waited five days to try it and can imagine it getting even better if I'd been a little more patient and was wanting more out of the bit of cream, but this is already terrific just the way it is.

Nice, not a bad or offensive recipe by any means, but tastes like it’s missing something. Like it’s all soft, slightly syrupy sweet base flavors that play well together, without something on top to really hook me in to wanting to vape more of it. It’s like an excellent part of a recipe that’s not quite finished. An easy route to something that tastes more complete would probably be something like adding just a little FA Cucumber, with that bit of green rind for more of a vegetal bite, or going the more melonious route and adding some FLV Wild Melon or something like that. And then there’s the possibility of going the more creative route, more creative than I am, and going for something completely different and contrasting against this complementary mix.

I think this might need to steep a lot longer than 2 days for me. It tastes like the floral aloe thing I get from too much cactus, with some apple and melon underneath. The over-Cactus'ed bit might steep out with more time. But I'm surprised by the strength of this honeydew, too, the little bit of melon I get from this tastes a lot more like an underripe honeydew than a watermelon.

I mixed it up as written without any of the suggested changes despite knowing that I don’t really care for the taste of menthol. Who knows, maybe this would be the recipe that would change my mind about menthol? It didn’t, but I can’t hold that against it. It’s sweet, juicy, delicious (aside from the menthol, lol). Candied and artificial more than natural honeydew vape, but that's ok, not everything has to be authentic. Should be a great, refreshing summer vape for menthol lovers, might work just as well without it for people like me, and really makes the case for TFA Honeydew II as a solid ingredient.

So that might not be spot on Mountain Dew, but it could certainly pass for a very solid representation of some unnamed store brand mountain dew type drink and that ought to be good enough for all but the pickiest dewy-eyed vapers. It dew taste like Mountain Dew. It’s sweet and wet and chilled and if you squint with your tasters real hard, you can almost get some fizz out of it. I had some concerns about harshness based on some of the ingredients here but the way they’re used here keeps that from being an issue for me. Sodas can be difficult, in my experience. I can imagine a lot of work went into this recipe and it feels like it paid off. I dew wonder whether a better dew could possibly be created using LB Dew Mountain instead of TFA Citrus Punch as the heart of it and fixing the shortcomings with that flavor with some of the same or similar flavors as what’s been used here. But that’s just an idea, I haven’t tasted a perfected Mountain Dew vape made that way yet. I’ve tasted this, and it tastes like five stars, at least until someone proves they can top it.

I kind of want to give this only 4 stars because I'm not picking up any of the advertised coconut flavor. But I can't, because it's that good! Instead of coconut, I get something that wasn't in the description, honey. I'm not mad about that. How can I be? It's too damn delicious and satisfying to be mad. I think it really drives home the tea thing; this is like drinking honey-sweetened hibiscus tea out of one side of my mouth with an unlit nutty cigarillo hanging out of the other. I had some real doubts about how that syrupy CAP Hibiscus would work with a tobacco. I would have advised against trying it. I would have been wrong. Vaping this makes me feel like I need a Hawaiian shirt and some criminal underlings to boss around. This tastes like a boss, and not just any boss, a tea-drinking island crime boss.

I was excited about this one because Honey + Fig + Bacco sounds terrific to me. I tried it without looking at the recipe first and thought, well, would be great, if it weren't for that hint of licorice. Someone who likes that black licorice flavor might be a fan, as I can't find any other reason not to like it, but that licorice is not for me. When I went back to look at the recipe, I expected to find some INW tobacco that I've never tried before, because that seems like a likely source of a licorice off note to me. Nope, VT Fig. It does taste like fig, not just black licorice, but enough black licorice for me to nope out. The licorice wasn't pushed far enough out of the mix, for me. I don't think I'll be using VT Fig anytime soon. I don't really get real honey but it does have a honey-like sweetness. It looks like a lot of different FLV tobaccos, which can result in a muddled and kind of soapy taste, but they work here. The addition of Shade here really seems to be working especially well. More tobacco recipes should make use of that, I think. Overall I think this has the makings of a great recipe, if only VT Fig didn't taste like licorice. I think this would be perfect for me with the VT Fig replaced with CAP Fig. As best I can tell from only trying VT Fig in this mix, CAP's version is the most comparable. FLV would be too dark and musty for this and FA too bright and juicy.

Definitely enjoyed this one. I got some kind of soft, moist bakery that could be a sponge cake underneath an elderflower-berry something. The cream or custard seems to be part of the sponge cake rather than part of the elderflower-berry and the strawberry tastes like more of a generic red berry thing rather than a clear strawberry. Interesting and delicious. I have some past experience with elderflower and I never would have guessed it could work in a bakery based on those experiences. And yet, here it does. It tastes like a super fancy dessert made with St. Germain-laced mixed red berry coulis. I love this. I wouldn't change this recipe at all.
