Here are a few of my favorite recipes I've developed. Visit All The Flavors to see all my public recipes.

 

PSYCHO. This is a remix of SMAX Pony On Acid. I've been working on this profile for quite some time. I released a similar profile December 2018, Rudolph On Acid ( https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/131873#rudolph_on_acid_by_folkart ). And while it was a decent recipe, it wasn't a clone or remix. It was a version I created on my journey to try and crack Pony On Acid. After many months and testing various strawberries, creams, pineapples, and berries, I think I've come about as close to the original as I can.

SMAX describes this e-liquid as, "a psychedelic blend of magical berries laced with a euphoric-and-intoxicating strawberry glaze, delivering a flavor profile experience that will have you craving more." For the most part the description is accurate. I do however get a very slight floral note from the original but over all it is a very nice commercial e-liquid. I get a airy almost whipped cream with marshmallow and creamy vanilla, a somewhat strawberry glaze, with light hints of pineapple and generic berry/raspberry, and just a pinch of graham. The pineapple note and berry note really does turn this profile into an interesting and unique departure from your basic "Strawberries and Cream". I can see why so many people enjoy it.

I want to be clear that this recipe, for certain, is not what SMAX uses to create their original. When I create a remix/clone, I try to pinpoint a few flavors I think they use or something that emulates what they use and build upon it. If I were to try to figure out exactly what they use, it would never be finished and I would lose my mind in the process. So, with that being said, this is how I approached it.

Lets start with the cream base.

The first thing I noticed with the cream base was a marshmallow note. A lot of marshmallows can mute recipes so I wanted to use one that had the least muting affect and FA Marshmallow was the obvious choice. At 3% it may seem a bit high but that's where I thought it shined the best, especially since it was so pronounced in the original. FA marshmallow was the right fit but it needed something to fill it out and FA New York Cheese Cake does that very well. It also brings that very slight graham note I was picking up in the original. I tried other cheese cakes but they seemed to have too much of that "cheesiness" that so many people like, but was not in the original. The original also has a slight creamy/milky/vanilla note. Getting this right was actually the hardest part of the remix. FA Meringue is always a great choice when adding a milky note, but it needed something else to bring home the creamy/vanilla note. I chose CAP Vanilla Bean Ice Cream for it's vanilla and "melted ice cream" creamy note, but only at 1% ( I didn't want to turn it into an ice cream). And paired with the FA Meringue it simulated the creamy/milky/vanilla note I was after. You may think using 4 "cream" flavorings seems like a lot to use in a recipe, and I would agree in most instances, however, in this case, each brings a unique note that really blends well without over flavoring.

Now the fruits.

Which strawberry should I choose? I could have approached this with a combination of strawberries like TPA ripe, FA Red Touch, and maybe INW Shisha Strawberry and this may have worked. But then my recipe would have been 9 flavorings and that ain't good. I try my best to keep my recipes to 7 or less. So my goal was to choose a strawberry that did what all three would do in the aforementioned. This was tough. I hate to admit this but I'm not a huge fan of strawberries. So many of them taste "chemically" to me. So the search was on. One choice was JF Sweet Strawberry. It does the "strawberry glaze" pretty well but it seemed a bit too artificial for me. As some of you might know, I've been on a Health Cabin kick lately, and I have to admit some are ok, some are super strong, but there are a few that I absolutely love and HC Fresh Strawberry is one of them. To me, this is a perfect combination of authentic strawberry, candy strawberry, and strawberry glaze. If you don't have it, get it! You won't be disappointed if you like strawberries. You can get it here https://www.diyvaporsupply.com/fresh-starwberry-hc/ or if not in the USA, here https://www.healthcabin.net/10ml-vapelf-berries-concentrated-flavors-p/18494.html .

The pineapple and berry note was a little difficult to get right. I tried TPA pineapple but it was too "throaty". I tried INW pineapple and it was ok, but the pineapple was too pronounced. After a few more pineapple flavors, I settled on TPA Pineapple Juicy, which is kind of a weird pineapple because it's like a pineapple with marshmallow. But for this profile it was perfect because of the marshmallow and at only .35% you can tell that some type of acidic/pineapple note is there but not throaty. (Thank you Graham Digital_Drops for the recommendation!)

The raspberry/berry note I started out with was TPA Sweet Raspberry and while it's probably what SMAX is using, it carries with it a floral note which I did pick up in the original. I wanted to eliminate that off note and went with RF Yumberry SC. Now is it a raspberry? No. But when used very low, it does have a generic sweet berry note. And all I needed was just a hint of berry note.

I added .75% Cap Super Sweet to match the sweetness of the original which to me is not too sweet, but you can adjust to your liking.
Wow! That was a long description. But I wanted to explain why I used each flavor. As I stated previously, I'm certain this is not how SMAX built Pony On Acid, but if you're a fan of the original, I don't think you will be disappointed with this remix. Is it a 100% clone? No. But to me it's as close as I can get without knowing the exact recipe.

This can be a shake and vape but is best if you let it steep for 7 days.

I hope you will mix, comment, and or rate, it make us all better mixers. 🙂

If anyone has tackled a peanut butter profile, you know how difficult this can be because of the lack of really good peanut butter flavorings. Most are dry, too “peanut” and not enough “butter”, and lacking in saturation. I took it a step further and added a chocolate, another hard profile(I must like the punishment). But after many batches, I believe this to be a fairly accurate mix. Do I think it’s perfect? No, but I’ll let you be the judge of that.

Lets start with the chocolate – (LA Chocolate Natural IS NOT LA Chocolate- DO NOT SUBSTITUTE) I discovered this flavor on my quest for the best chocolate. This flavoring has a “real” chocolate vibe that seems to emulate a chocolate bar. It feels like a chocolate coating that you would have on a Reese Cup or chocolate bar. For this reason I chose this as my chocolate layer. I’ve used it from .5% – 2% but higher than 2% you start to get a very slight off note from it but not as bad as other chocolates. With any chocolate you need something to sell the profile because most are dry and “cocoa-like”. Although LA Chocolate Natural has very little of this, it does need a “fatty” creamy note to make the chocolate believable. WF White Chocolate (Milky Cream) does this very nicely and it also gives the peanut butter note that creaminess that most peanut butter flavorings lack. This flavoring kills 2 birds with 1 stone.

Now the peanut butter – What can I say except I wish we had a better one. That being said, TPA DX Peanut Butter is the most accurate, best peanut butter we have. I tried bolstering TPA DX Peanut Butter with HS peanut Butter, and while it’s a decent flavoring, it gave it too much of a “peanut skin” note. This seems to be a problem with most peanuts or peanut butters. I also tried FLV peanut butter, which in my opinion is the second best peanut butter, but it has such a dryness and off note that just didn’t work. So, I focused on getting the creaminess and “caramel” notes right with the addition of the WF White Chocolate(Milky Cream) and FW Butter Pecan. The FW Butter Pecan adds the caramel and slight creaminess or smoothness that I needed to balance the peanut butter.

The cookie – WF Crispy Wafer was always on my list for this profile. It is the most accurate note for the type of wafer I was going for. The only problem was that it was too light. I tried pumping it up to around 5% but it began to make the mix very dry and throaty. I decided to try and lift the wafer note by adding FLV Graham Cracker at 1%, and it did lift the wafer up, but seemed too dark for a “wafer”. So, I decided to brighten or “wafferize”(I know that’s not a word) the graham cracker. I added CAP Sugar Cookie at a mere .5%, just enough to bring a brightness to the graham cracker.

I added .75% Cap Super Sweet to the mix because the real desert is sweet, but feel free to adjust it to your preference.

Do I think this is a perfect mix,…no, but given the flavors we have to work with, it’s pretty damn tasty.

This is not a shake and vape! This mix is a bit throaty off the shake so please let it steep. It needs a week steep, but 2 weeks is suggested.

I hope you will mix, comment, and or rate, it make us all better mixers. 🙂

Honey Butter Ice Cream

FA HONEY IS AT A 10% PG DILUTION. DO NOT...I REPEAT...DO NOT USE FA HONEY AT .5%, IT MUST BE DILUTED TO 10% BEFORE YOU USE IT! ALSO, FA VANILLA ICE CREAM IS ALSO CALLED GELATO VANIGLIA.

With that said, "What the hell is Honey Butter Ice Cream?". Well, it was an idea that came to me on one of those sleepless nights. I don't think it's even a real thing but I thought the pairings of honey and butter with a rich ice cream would make for a delectable, decadent, desert. So, I went for it.

Recently I mixed a recipe by The eJuice Fairy(Jennifer Winstead) where she used FA Vanilla Ice Cream. I had never used it before but was very surprised how rich, creamy, and "clean" or "bright" it was. I chose this flavoring because I wanted a "bright" ice cream to make some separation from the buttery honey notes and it was the perfect choice.

WF Caramel Butter is such a rich flavoring. It adds both butter and a complimentary caramel to bolster the FA Honey. Please note: I DID NOT USE 0.5% FA HONEY. I used a 10% dilution of FA Honey, so please don't use it straight from the bottle at .5%, it's way too strong.

The CAP Vanilla Custard is there to give a bit of a mouth-feel and "compress" the ice cream, much like a home-made ice cream, not like a soft-serve ice cream. The FLV Cream is there to add a bit of vanilla and body as well.

Just a bit of CAP SS to lift up things a bit.

It was a lot of fun creating something that doesn't really exist in real life and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.

This can be a shake and vape but it's best to steep it for 2-5 days.

Rudolph on Acid – My Christmas gift to the mixing community.

This is not a remix/clone of SMAX – Pony On Acid, it is however, inspired by that profile . I’ve been working for some time to clone Pony on Acid, and I’ve gotten close but it’s not ready for release. I did however, want to release my version of what I imagined this profile could be.

SMAX describes Pony On Acid as “A blend of magical berries laced with a euphoric strawberry glaze.” The images SMAX uses to describe this profile includes, strawberries, pineapple, and raspberries atop a light, fluffy cream, and that truly describes what I taste in the original. However, there are some off notes in the original that I get. There is a “hairspray” or “floral” note that is very off-putting and the “cream” layer seems a bit thin. So, I decided to use the profile as a guide but approach it differently.

To me, the cream needed to be fuller, and have more of a mouth-feel. I decided to go with a custard, but not a very “eggy” custard. FA Custard Premium was just right for this. If you’re in the USA, you’ll probably have a hard time finding this flavoring because FA North America doesn’t want it sold in the USA. But DIY-ers can still purchase it through www.chefsflavours.co.uk .

In the original, I could definitely taste a marshmallow and it fit very well with the profile, so I stayed with that note and used FA Marshmallow at 2%.

The original’s description states it is “laced with a euphoric strawberry glaze”. You can simulate a “Strawberry Glaze” in many different ways. You use CAP Sweet Strawberry in conjunction with another strawberry and maybe add TPA Sweet Raspberry, and I actually did use that in some of my versions. However, I think the TPA Sweet Raspberry was what was giving the mix a “Hairspray” off note. I decided not to add a raspberry note and by doing so, eliminated the off note. Also, to keep with the profile and to consolidate the recipe as much as I could, I used only one strawberry, JF Strawberry Sweet. It has a nice “cooked” strawberry note much like a strawberry glaze.

The original’s description doesn’t mention anything about a pineapple. However, in all of the images SMAX uses to describe the profile, they show pineapple with the strawberries and in the original I definitely get a pineapple note. They are probably using CAP Golden Pineapple but in my mix it seemed a bit weak even at 1.5%. I decided I wanted a more distinct pineapple and TPA was the obvious choice, but you have to be careful with it because it can be harsh over .5% and can take over a mix. So I used it very low at only .25%.

I added Super Sweet at .5% to lift everything up make it more vivid. If that’s too much, you can always reduce it to your liking.

I do believe this mix stays true to the profile while expressing my own preferences. Anyone who enjoys Pony On Acid, I hope, will enjoy this as well. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Mayan Milk

From day 1 of my mixing career I have been on a quest to make the perfect chocolate milk. And with many failures, I believe I have gotten about as close as I can to that profile with Mayan Milk.

As all mixers know, chocolates are one of the hardest profiles to tackle. The reason being that most, if not all, chocolate flavorings have off notes. But this shouldn't be surprising in that chocolate flavorings in the cooking world are bitter, chalky, and just down right nasty. Chocolates are derived from the cocoa bean or cacao(/kəˈkaʊ/) bean. The beans are dried and fermented, then made into a powder. Chocolate is made from this powder with the addition of sugars and fatty ingredients. So in essence, chocolate flavorings are like a spice and they need to have supporting flavors to make a good chocolate.

So, in my quest for the "perfect" chocolate milk vape, I approached chocolate flavorings as a spice. Now, I don't believe there has ever been a "perfect" recipe, but for a chocolate milk, I think this is as close as I can get,.... for now 😉 .

I began testing chocolate flavorings very early in my mixing career and the testing continues today. I have found a few that seem to work better than others and have the least "off notes", and those are the ones I used in my batching of this recipe.

For this recipe, I settled on CAP Double Chocolate V2. This is a highly under-rated flavoring in my opinion being that I don't see it much in other's recipes. It's a thick, deep chocolate, almost a dark chocolate, that only needs that sweet and fatty infusion to make it into a nice chocolate.

Most of my chocolate supporting flavorings have an inherent sweetness, FLV Cream, FA Meringue, LB Vanilla Ice Cream. These help add sweetness while adding creaminess and body to the mix.

I have noticed that most chocolate flavorings need either a coconut note, or a caramel note to simulate either cocoa butter(which is in most chocolates), or the caramel to simulate a richness like a caramel chocolate. In this mix I decided to go the caramel route. It seemed to be the better choice for a "Chocolate Milk" rather than using a coconut flavoring which seems to be better when going after a "Milk Chocolate" if that makes sense. FA Butterscotch was my choice at just 1%.

The secret weapon here to make this into a chocolate milk that would stand out among the others is HS Chocolate Cream. I absolutely love this flavoring. It gives the mix a certain "sourness", kind of like a yogurt but with more emphasis on the creaminess. It really makes the mix stand out.

In cooking, to make any real chocolate recipe, you have to sweeten it up. I added .75% CAP Super Sweet to accomplish this. If you find it too high, feel free to lower it. But trust me on this, CHOCOLATES NEED TO BE SWEET!

If there's one con to this recipe, I would say that when vaping this, I have to change my cotton about every 2 days. It's a pain, but so worth it.

This needs to steep for 4-7 days, but if you can, a 2 week steep is so worth the wait.

I hope you will mix, comment, and or rate, it make us all better mixers. 🙂

Butter Beer 1707

When Jen Jarvis asked me to join her on her Flavor-Pro YouTube channel for an episode called "Fantasy Food Fest", there was only one recipe profile that popped in my head....Butter Beer. Yes, yes,...I know you're thinking.. "Folkart is such a nerd." And well, you would be right. I absolutely love the Harry Potter story line. My brother and I even dressed like characters from the movies for a midnight showing of the last in the Harry Potter series; Don't judge.

Anyway, Jen Jarvis asked me to create a recipe based on a fantasy genre and Butter Beer was it. Now if anyone has visited the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando, FLA, you would know that they sell the fictitious brew in the park. It's a combination of a cream soda, butterscotch, and whipped cream; A very delicious desert drink. However, being the Harry Potter nerd that I am, I dove a little deeper into this wizardly brew.

Wikipedia describes this witchy brew as tasting a little bit like "sickly butterscotch". Butter Beer was served cold in bottles and hot in foaming tankards. An extra sweet variant was brewed by Madam Rosmerta. Another variant was named Butter Beer 1707, which was considered very rare and could be ordered for delivery. And so, this was my quest to imagine what this rare formulation of Butter Beer 1707 tasted like.

I imagined it to be sweet, thick, and stickier than the basic brew. Although most real Butter Beers are made with cream soda, the 1707 version needed to have more of a bite, so instead I used FLV Root Beer.

The star of a good Butter Beer is the butterscotch. I used FA Butterscotch on the first versions but Butter Beer 1707 needed to be richer. So, I settled on VT Butter Toffee Base to bring a much richer "butterscotch" and add that butter note I was looking for. Paired with VT English Toffee, it gave it a more "sickly butterscotch" note.

I used FA Bavarian Cream at 2% to fill out the mix by adding creaminess to the mix.

Butter Beer 1707 should only be served hot with a frothy whipped cream atop. Therefore, CAP Vanilla Whipped Cream was my choice for this layer.

I added a touch of TPA Vanillin to lift up the Toffee's and added 1% CAP Super Sweet. If 1% SS is too high for you, feel free to lower it, but as I mention in my description of Butter Beer 1707, it's supposed to be sweet, thick, and sticky.

Ok, so now I can go back to the muggle world but I hope you will enjoy this brew on those cold winter months. Enjoy 🙂

You can most defiantly vape this as a shake and vape, but I would suggest a week steep.

I hope you will mix, comment, and or rate, it make us all better mixers. 🙂

The New Sweet Potato Pie

Last year about this time, I released my Sweet Potato Pie recipe. In the months following the release, Flavorah released their YAM that is out of this world delicious! Summer is close to an end and Fall will be here very shortly, so I felt it would be the perfect time to release my updated version.

This version builds off of the original but I added and took away a few flavorings for this version. (You can read my notes on the original version here https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/63611#sweet_potato_pie_by_folkart ).

FLV Yam is the star here. It's about as accurate a flavor as I've ever tested. I has a deep yam flavor that is second to none. I also kept the HS Pumpkin Pie but lowered the percentages from the original, just to add a bit of a commercial canned pumpkin/sweet potato aspect to the mix.

The DFS Holy Holy Grail is there for the caramel and vanilla almost giving it a "brown sugar" feel to the mix.

I stayed with the WF Caramel Rice Crispy Treats because to me, it's flavor is that of the soft pumpkin pie crust that is on the bottom of a pumpkin pie. The caramel also adds to the richness of the mix.

CAP Vanilla Custard. A sweet potato pie is in essence a custard, so by adding this flavoring at 1%, it gives it that sweet custard feel, without taking away from the yam and pumpkin.

My original version used CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl, and while it's a great flavoring to use, the cinnamon can be a bit strong. Wayne Walker reviewed my original version and he did like it very much, but he said he would tweak it a bit by reducing the CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl. So I took his advise in this version and used WF Cinnamon Pastry because to me it has a slightly less cinnamon note.

My first few versions did not have FA Cookie but I felt it was needed to bring home the pie crust note. And I think that it has.

One thing that my original lacked, in my opinion, was a buttery note. I have learned that this is a very important note to include in most bakeries. You may ask, "Why FLV Popcorn though?". To me FLV Popcorn is the perfect flavor to add that buttery note. I do use CAP Golden Butter in a lot of my mixes, but it requires a very long steep and sometimes has a plastic note that I can't get past, especially when used at higher percentages.

One other suggestion Wayne Walker made his review of my original was that the TPA Toasted marshmallow was not really doing much in the mix. So I took his advise and removed the TPA Toasted Marshmallow and with the addition of the CAP Vanilla Custard, I agree that it's not needed.

I added .5% CAP Super Sweet to liven things up a bit, but you can lower or raise this to your liking.

You can most defiantly vape this as a shake and vape, but I would suggest a week steep to let the CAP Vanilla Custard bloom.

I hope you will mix, comment, and or rate, it make us all better mixers. 🙂

Assassin (Killer Kustard Remix)

Assassin! This remix has pushed my skills to the limit. You would think a custard would be one of the easiest remixes to tackle, but this profile took over 40 batches to get right! Vapetasia's Killer Kustard has a certain sharpness or brightness that was very difficult to mimic. I have no idea what they use, but I think I've come about as close as I can without absolutely going insane trying to figure out what flavorings they use.

I want to give a big shout out to Wayne Walker for his insight on this profile. Although his thoughts on what goes into Killer Kustard is much different than my final version, he has been a huge help tackling this profile, thanks Wayne.

My first 20 or 30 batches were loosely based on Waynes public release of his Killa Kustard. And while it is very close, there seemed to be missing that "sharpness" or "Brightness" I mentioned earlier. I honestly used every conceivable combination of custards, creams, ice creams, and sweeteners that I could and created a shit-ton of really good custards, just not Killer Kustard.

One "break-through" I had was when I ordered DFS Holy Vanilla. I had been using INW Shisha Vanilla for that sharp vanilla note I was getting in the original, but it wasn't quite right. I heard Wayne say that he too got a "sharpness" from the original and thought by turning up his percentages, he might could get that sharpness. I normally don't use vanillas over say .5%, but DFS Holy vanilla can be cranked up, and that was the secret sauce that was needed.

Many mixers think that the custard used in the original is CAP Vanilla Custard V2 and while that may be the case, I found that CAP Vanilla Custard V1 worked better for me giving it a much deeper, eggier feel.

HS Italian Cream is there to give the mix and even deeper, rich note that most creams lack. At 1% it really adds character to the mix.

Last but not least, FW Sweetener. Many mixers say it's best to use EM in custards, and for the most part I agree that sweeteners like CAP SS is not the best for this particular profile. However, when I used TPA EM I got a muting that was taking away from the brightness I was going for and when paired with DFS Holy Vanilla, FW Sweetener was the best choice for this profile.

This recipe is very simple in it's structure, but it was not a simple recipe to try to clone/remix. I've done my best and anyone who loves Killer Kustard will, I'm sure, love this.

Steep time is a minimum of 1 week, 2 weeks is better for the CAP Vanilla Custard to shine. I mixed this at 70/30 VG/PG as that's what the original is mixed at.

I hope you will mix, comment, and or rate, it make us all better mixers. 🙂

Catacomb

This is my inaugural attempt at a tobacco profile. I have to say, it took some time to develop a palate for tobaccos but I think this is a very nice first tobacco recipe. This recipe needs a full month steep to fully develop. If you vape it too soon you will get too much of an ashy note. Also, this is a recipe for people who love tobacco profiles. So, if you don't like tobaccos, this might not be for you. If you are a connoisseur of tobacco profiles, I think this will be right up your alley.

My goal here was to make a honey, roasted pecans and cream, tobacco, with brown sugar notes, ...heavy on the tobacco note. So you will get a bit of an ash in this mix. But if you let it steep for a month the ashy note will subside a lot.

This recipe is pretty self explanatory, but I will break it down.

The FLV (CA)vendish is there to represent the ashy tobacco. It's quite strong so only .1% is required.

The FLV (TA)tanka is there for a deep, slightly moist tobacco.

The FLV (COMB)Milk & Honey adds the honey and a bit of milky creaminess.

The DFS Holy Holy Grail RY4 is there for the brown sugars.

And last but not least, the WF Roasted Pecans & Cream adds the roasted pecans and adds a bit of creaminess and a very slight roasted coffee note.

I hope experienced tobacco profile vapers will mix this and give me feedback as tobacco profiles are new to me and would love to see the comments. If you're not an experienced tobacco profile vaper, maybe this will be your introduction into tobaccos.

Steep time is 1 month. Yes I know that's a long time to wait, but I think you will be glad you did.

Blue Moon (Lunar Harvest Remix)

This is a remix of Vapors Knoll – Lunar Harvest – https://www.vapersknoll.com/products/lunar-harvest – submitted by Avon Barksdale. If you would like to submit a clone request, please visit this link https://www.facebook.com/notes/freedom-to-mix/suggest-remixesclones/461914887596726/and I will do my best to create a remix.

Vaper’s Knoll describes this as a blue rock candy with berries and cotton candy and that’s a very good description of the profile. It’s a pretty straight forward recipe, but when vaping the original, I was picking up on a hint of creaminess. So I added CAP Creamy Yogurt at 1.5%. This seems to “break-up” the fruits a bit and adds a deeper dimension to the recipe. It’s defiantly not a yogurt profile, and adding it doesn’t turn it into a yogurt profile. It just adds depth to the over-all recipe.

Thanks to Avon Barksdale for sending this remix suggestion. If you like candy vapes, I’m sure this will be one you will like. This can be a shake and vape, but just a couple days and it’s better.

Any comments, reviews, good or bad is welcomed. It makes us all better mixers. 🙂

Wow! This was a huge challenge. As many mixers know, a really good chocolate is hard to develop. For one, it seems most, if not all, chocolates have off notes. Some have plastic notes, others have a mustiness, and others have both. While a good long steep can take out some of the off notes, it doesn't always go away and it's very hard to cover up these off notes. My approach was to find the one that had the lesser of the two evils and I think I found it.
Now the profile I was going for was my interpretation of Metix Golden Ticket. I'm not calling it a clone, but you can be the judge whether it's close or not.
Metix describes this profile as chocolate milk with a rich creamy twist. I'm not sure if that's an accurate description of the flavor I get, but it is a wonderful eliquid. To me, it absolutely does have a creamy twist but the chocolate milk part seems different than just a "chocolate milk". I get a chocolate fudge with slight caramel notes with just a hint of coconut and a very rich cream. It is a wonderful blend of chocolates and cream. So, here is how I approached it.
The chocolate:
This was difficult. As I mentioned, there's just not a lot of chocolates out there that don't have off notes. But there is one that stands above the crowd, HS Australian Chocolate. This one seemed to have the least off notes and after a week steep no major detectable off notes. Off the shake it does have a slight mustiness but so much less than all the others I have tried. I had considered LB Lava Cake but that flavoring seems to be better in a bakery rather than a chocolate milk. HS Australian Chocolate at 3% was the best choice for this.
The HS Australian Chocolate, however, was not right own it's own for this profile. It needed that hint of coconut and that slight caramel I was tasting. Now I didn't want the coconut to take over the mix which is easy done if used too high. TPA Coconut Candy at .25% was all that was needed to make the chocolate have deeper dimension to it and to add a bit of sweetness. The caramel note was a bit harder. I wanted to add that slight caramel note but with out giving it a "butterscotch" taste. FW Salted Caramel is one of the best caramels out there, but it has a "nutty" note that I didn't feel was right for this mix. I settled on TPA Dulce De Leche Caramel at 1%. This was the perfect choice. It has a milky note like condensed milk that added to the "chocolate milk" part of the profile and a slight caramel.
The Creamy Twist:
Anytime I'm going for a "milk" the first flavoring I grab is FA Meringue. It seems to do so well as a milk in many profiles. But this profile needed a twist. I needed a deep rich milk to compliment the chocolate and HS Italian Cream was it. If anyone is wanting a full bodied rich cream I highly recommend HS Italian Cream. FA Meringue at 2% and HS Italian Cream at 1.5% was perfect for this "Creamy Twist" I was looking for.
Metix Golden Ticket is a very nice eliquid. It is, however, on the upper side of sweetness for me. But one thing I've learned is that chocolates need that sweetness. I added .5% CAP Super Sweet which may be too high for some, but that's the beauty of DIY, you can modify to your liking.
If you don't mind a very slight mustiness, this can be a shake and vape. However I suggest letting it steep for about a week and 2 weeks is even better.
I hope people that love Golden Ticket will mix this and see how close I've gotten. Any comments, reviews, good or bad is welcomed. It makes us all better mixers. 🙂

Sad Sam Circles

Toucan Sam finally reached his breaking point! He couldn't take the pressure of show biz anymore. For years he held his beak and wouldn't say what was really on his mind. Those fruity circles had drove him to madness. He cracked over wondering "What kind of fruits are in these fucking circles?". He started drinking heavy and the stress got the best of him. He ended it all with a bullet to the head. All the years of eating those delicious fruit circles had turned his brain into the very thing that drove him to depression and madness. Now you can taste what was on his mind with ...Sad Sam Circles.

Ok, ok, I know, it's corny. But, this has been a serious journey into making a great "Froot Loops" cereal vape. I can't remember how long it's been since I've had Froot Loops but taste memory is so strong, I still remember what it taste like. My quest for a better "Froot Loops" vape started with vaping Looper by ANML. And to be honest I wasn't impressed. I got weird off notes from it and tried to clone it to make it better but I didn't seem to get there. I also purchased Kilo's Cereal Milk. This was a lot better but it still didn't quite do it for me. It had too much of an orange note that I didn't care for. So I decided to create my own to fit my tastes in a "Froot Loops" vape.

Most mixers will start with a fruit circles flavoring as their base. With most of these I get a weird lemon pledge note that I just did not enjoy, so I decided to build my own cereal base.

The Cereal:
I have recently re-discovered CAP Gingerbread. It's a very versatile flavoring for all sorts of bakeries and cereals. It adds a soft chewy ginger cookie when used at higher percentage and at lower percentages a nice sweet soft bakery with hints of ginger. When paired with JF Biscuit, it transforms into a nice cereal base and without the "lemon Pledge" note.

The milk:
I tried several different milk bases including combinations of OOO cream milky undertones, FA meringue, FA cream Fresh, and FA Milk. I settled on FA Milk and FA Meringue. It seems to have the best sugary sweet creamy milk I was going for. I also added CAP Vanilla Custard to give the milk an almost condensed milk note to add some thickness and body to the milk.

The "Froot":

As I mentioned, Cereal Milk by Kilo was a pretty tasty eliquid, however, I didn't like the orange note in the juice. So I decided not to add any orange and base my "Froot" on just the lemon. FE Lemon was the obvious choice. To me, it's the best lemon out there that has the least off notes and will not fade as bad as the others. At .75% it is spot on for what I was shooting for.

The sweetness level might be a little high for some. I did try it without sweetener and it seemed to lack vibrancy. If you like less sweet vapes, I would suggest only using .25% CAP Super Sweet. But .5% worked for me.

Steep time is best at 1 week to let the CAP Vanilla Custard bloom but 2-3 days is good as well.

I hope people that love cereal vapes will mix this and see how close I've gotten to a "Froot Loops". Any comments, reviews, good or bad is welcomed. It makes us all better mixers. 🙂

Pineapple Grill

So, A grilled Pineapple. The pineapple part was easy enough but how the hell was I going to represent the grilled aspect? I got the inspiration from matthewkocanda's attempt at a grilled pineapple but people were saying it was more of a grilled stick, so I didn't want to go down that path. I haven't mixed his up, so I can't really comment on how that recipe turned out. But it was his recipe that got me thinking about it, thank you matthewkocanda.

When I taste a grilled pineapple, the first thing I taste is a sharp, sweeten pineapple with hints of caramelized sugars and a slight nutty/burnt flavor. So here was my approach.

The pineapple:
I tried several pineapples like CAP Golden Pineapple, and while it's good, it seems to be on the light side and was lacking the "sharpness" I was looking for. I added FLV Cherimoya to see if it would brighten up the CAP Golden Pineapple, and it did, but not enough. So I tried TPA Pineapple. TPA Pineapple is not my go to pineapple simply because it is very strong and seems to be harsh in some recipes. However, at 2% and FLV Cherimoya at 2% it seemed to have that "sharp" pineapple I was going for. Now by themselves, they are strong so I needed to add something that would cut through the sharpness while giving it that caramelized sugar and nutty/burnt note. So here's what I did.

As some of you may know, I tested about every cheesecake out there. Some are bad, some are good, and others are better. But each has it's own take on a cheesecake. HS Cheesecake is one of those flavorings that on it's own can be a much different cheesecake than you expect. It's not really good for a base cheesecake, but it has it's uses. HS Cheesecake to me tastes like a slightly over cooked cheesecake with a pretty strong note of a burnt cheesecake. So adding this flavor at only .25% gives the slightly burnt note while adding a touch of creaminess to the pineapple. This helps to cut through the sharpness of the pineapples.

Caramelized sugars/nutty note:
With this layer I choose WF Roasted Pecans & Cream at 3%. When I tested this flavor I got a caramelized, slight coffee note. It also had a toasted or burnt note with a slight sweetness and somewhat nutty. I thought this would work well as the caramelized/nutty flavor as well as adding in more "grilled" or burnt notes. This also helps to cut through the sharp pineapples.

There was only one thing missing to make this recipe have that deep "brown sugar"/caramel note and DFS HOLY HOLY GRAIL RY4 at .25% was it. It adds a richness that this recipe needed to make it believable as a grilled pineapple. I added .25% CAP Super Sweet to liven it up a bit...and done.

I don't know if this is 100% authentic, but it's damn good. I could see this recipe being used with a scoop of ice cream on top or on a pineapple upside down cake as well. Mix it, change it, and try to add your own spin to it. This is a shake and vape but gets better with time. 🙂

Oatmeal Cream Pie

Oatmeal Cream Pie. This was a recipe based on one of my guilty pleasures. I love Little Debbie Oatmeal Cream Pies! The fluffy sweet cream smashed between two soft, chewy oatmeal cookies takes me back to one of my simple pleasures as a child.

When thinking about this profile, one would think the starting point would be some sort of oat or oatmeal flavoring. But as some of you may know from some of my other recipes, I rarely go the traditional route. As I was doing research,(after a empty box of Little Debbies) I realized that one of the main notes I was getting was ginger. So, that's where I started. This profile is best described as a chewy, ginger spiced, oatmeal cream pie.

The oatmeal cookie:
I wanted to see if I could bend CAP Gingerbread into a soft, chewy oatmeal cookie. Now I'm not sure if it's 100% authentic, but it's pretty damn close! I'm also relying on the power of suggestion in this recipe. And believe you me, the power of suggestion is real!

CAP Gingerbread is one of the most underutilized flavorings in my opinion. It has a very slight cinnamon note that fades to the background pretty quickly. It absolutely has a ginger spice that holds through the entire vape. It has a wonderful soft, chewy texture that reminds me of a soft oatmeal cookie and that's why I used it in this mix. I added FA Cookie at .5 % to add a bit more of a dark cookie note and add some texture and slight brown sugar notes. FA Cookie is good if you want to add darker notes to your cookie unlike CAP Sugar Cookie, while it's a wonderful flavor, it's more of a bright sugar cookie.

The Cream:
Anytime I want to add a fluffy cream to my profiles, TPA Bavarian Cream is my go to. Now it can be a little heavy in a recipe and that's why I added FA Cream Fresh at 1% to lift it up a bit and add some bright, fluffiness to the cream, just as the cream is in a oatmeal cream pie. I also added 1% TPA Vanilla Swirl to help cut through the creams and give it a more vibrant feel.

The CAP Super Sweet at .5% may be a little high for some people, but that's where I find it works the best for me(I do like my sweets). Feel free to use a lower percentage if you prefer a lower sweetness.

This can be a shake and vape, but if you let it set for just a few days the slight cinnamon dies down and the ginger settles in. Recommended steep time is 5 days.

I hope you will mix this up and see if it takes you back to your childhood memories of this delicious snack!

Harvest Custard (A Duchess Remix)

Harvest Custard, a remix of Kings Crest Duchess. Over the last few months it seems everyone has been releasing some sort of custard recipe. I thought it was time for me to release my take on Duchess. Kings Crest describes this profile as a decadent, creamy tres leches cake. I'm not sure how accurate it is to that description, but it is very tasty. I taste a buttery, brown sugar with vanilla and a thick custard with hints of corn giving it an autumn feel. Now I have no idea what they are using but here's how I approached this profile.

Looped

Looper by ANML clone/remix. This is how ANML describes this profile, "Looper by ANML is the newest addition to ANML's growing e-liquid collection, perfected and made by hand in small batches by Phillip Rocke. Looper carries a remarkably accurate flavor of fruity cereal over creamy milk; it has a complex-yet-immediately-familiar taste that flawlessly balances the crispness of a newly-opened box of fruity cereal with the rich, indulgent flavor of fresh milk."
As "Premium" juices go, I'm not too impressed with this. However, I know it's very popular and I wanted to tackle this for a much cheaper option while staying true to the original and possibly making it better. ANML says this is supposed to be a fruity cereal with fresh milk, but this is what I get from this vape. It's very lemony on top with a slight cereal note and a hint of cream. I also get a slight cactus after taste, which sounds weird, but I think it adds to the "fruity cereal" aspect. Here's how I deconstructed it.
