Don't buy pineapple - I have an extra.
I didn't buy any pineapple. Nobody offered advice on the different brands. The only one i have is FA.
I just spend $85 on flavors and after mixing yesterday, i need to order more. I cannot run out of Cap v1 custard!
SC and Hangsen are my favorites
Creme Caramel is pretty good. I added there golden syrup (which is excellent) and a couple of other flavours and it was the closest I have got to creme caramel desserts you get in UK
Yeah Im same boat and closing the door to any further efforts fa juicy strawberry meh, vta glazed straberry meh, Inw Shisha strawberry meh etc etc etc. Two favourite strawberry flavours are rf strawberry milkshake....though it fades to nothing quickly and the original fa strawberry........ the first one I bought
What did you think of it as I didnt think much of it....in fact I would go as far to say none of the fruits I have tried are above average that I would recommend them.
For me so far:
Excellent: Pudding Base, Sherbert, Golden Syrup, Arabica Coffee, Coffee Milk Froth, Bubblegum Base
Good: Turkish Delight, Creme Caramel, Lavender Sweet, Hokey Pokey Ice Cream,
Average: Cigar Leaf, Rhubarb Compote, Lemon Meringue Tart, Creamy Cheesecake, Mother Energy, Honeycomb, Apollo Fioja, Chocolate Base, Chocolate Milk, Glazed Strawberries, Fairy Floss, Grape Juice, White Chocolate Base,
Poor: Creamy Custard, Cinnamon DOnut, Sugar Cane, Golden Rum, Pear Halves, English Marmalade, Jam It, Pineapple, Dragon Fruit
A lot of what's on your list still isn't available here, I'm afraid. From your "excellent" list, I like the coffee milk froth in very small percentages. Anything above 2% has the "barf" aftertaste to me, so it's likely high in butyric acid. Love the Apollo Fioja and creme caramel and the shisha raspberry is dreamy. (Not on any of your lists, but def worth a mention) I haven't done anything with the pineapple, I just inadvertently ordered two bottles. Hope it's good though, I'm picky about that one. Hate FA and Caps golden, but fairly pleased with TFA and inawera, sometimes a combination of the two. Sugar cane is nice as a mild sweetener, I think. Very subtle, and that's good for me because my experiences with Caps super sweet have about turned me against any of them.
I have not done anything with the chocolate milk but if it remotely resembles their chocolate mousse it will be famous at my house.
Overall, I like the line so far but everyone has their duds, I suppose. Lol!
Yeah....I just ordered some v1 myself. With all the talk about the “worldwide DAAP shortage”, I would hate to be without my custards.
I need to change my list, the poor category. "Golden Rum" I thought I had used too strongly, have now used it in mixes right down to 0.25%. This now enters my top 5 possibly top 3 worst concentrates ever! Stuff is absolutely vile, overpowers everything even at 0.25% and it overpowers it with putrid taste.....its one of the "holy no, where is the bin" concentrates......avoid
I wonder if it's one you could dilute? Like the FA condensed milk, mix 1ml concentrate with 9ml PG to use it at normal percentages. I haven't ordered that one yet.
I am definitely in love with Chocolate Custard. 2% standalone is so rich, creamy, a smooth, mild chocolate. This one is gonna have a lot of mixing possibilities for custards and puddings.
Does anyone have an opinion on english toffee or toffee base? Couldn't resist adding coffee liqueur to the cart and of course the mandarin.
I LOVE VTA ENGLISH TOFFEE
I've only tried it a couple ways, both with a coffee, it's kinda light and I have to go light on the coffee with it or it gets drowned out. But with a low flavoring mix it's yummy
Needing a dark chocolate to boost a coffee, anyone try VT's yet?
TBH it was that vile at 0.5% I dont want to work with it ever again
I tried these again. Its been a couple weeks since I mixed them.
Strawberry Jam- This is definitely strawberry now. But there isn't much jamminess here. I bet this with JF Sweet Strawberry would make a really good "Strawberry Jam". This is a decent SB now. It reminds me of frozen strawberry daiquiri or something.
Raspberry Jam- Now this one is just random sweetness. No raspberry, no jam just sweet airy vape. I mixed it low (3%), following Vape Trains recommendation. I will start going up and report back again if I can get something going with this.
Sweet Honey- Still unidentifiable weird flavor. Funky Australian bees making funky Australian honey? Like I said, its not bad tasting. I just don't know what the heck I'm tasting.
Pudding Base- It may be a little thicker/richer, still very good. I'm going to throw some butterscotch and maybe chocolate at it and see how it goes.
I'm thinking of getting the Warm Custard since you guys okay'd it. I might get the Honey Pomelo too since I'm a grapefruit nut . Oh I forgot maybe one of the chocolates since I heard they do it well.
Have you tried milk fresh yet? I did one with strawberry milk and milk fresh and a couple other things and it came out pretty awesome.
No, I'm behind! I still need to test the Russian vodka because I have a drink recipe I'd like to adapt. Vaping a tester of dark chocolate at 3% right now and it's killer! Looking to replace the FW dark chocolate in my chocolate orange recipe.
I tried making a Moscow mule with it with a little success, some adjustments need to be made but I can see it working pretty well.
Wow, you could make stiff screwdivers and the like lol. Vodka/Redbull? I don't drink much but might like a good boozy vape.
Or the orange tang and vodka ...yum
sent from my phone but thats not the reason for the bad spelling. it is what it is yo.
if you want to try anything new I might wait a couple days and watch your emails just incase that one place send out an email blast
One of FW's best flavors is Fuzzy Navel. You can taste the orange, the peach schnapps...I like it as a single flavor, and especially in my Peach Schnapps Cranberry Sauce juice.
All of a sudden im getting thirsty
sent from my phone but thats not the reason for the bad spelling. it is what it is yo.
Honeycomb is good to eat. Gives your honey some texture.

This sale was timed horribly, just restocked my FA's and Pur's with the sale at NR, just to spend more money on VT flavors, thanks BCF lol
Since I was quite impressed with my first batch of VT's as they were finally stocked in the US, I decided to order some flavors that might not have gotten a high rating yet, or rating of any kind. After the dilemma and horrible disappointment with the one drop flavor line, I thought it can not get worse, am I right?
So I ordered
* English marmalade
* chocolate mousse
* shisha mango
* shisha strawberry
* warm custard
* banana custard
* biscuit base (since I'm still looking for the perfect biscuit/cookie/pie crust etc)
* creaming soda
* rice base
* cookies & cream
* crème brulé (since InW once again changed some of their flavorings, time to find a replacement)
* rhubarb (yet to find a authentic great one)
* white chocolate (love FWs but I'm trying to replace my FW with other brands)
* croissant (yet to find a true flaky European one, not butter croissant or the crap sold in US stores that has nothing to do with a croissant)
* pudding base (restock)
Let's see if its a good haul or a huge disappointment hope bcf is getting more tho, some flavors I wanted too try are not listed yet
I only picked up 3 this time.
Blood orange champagne
Tester of the mandarin is weak and too sweet flavor wise on day 5 will give it another week before tweaking. I'll be mixing the Irish Cream today.
I have heard very good things about the banana custard. I got it to try out, along with a few restocks.....
Made my first order to try some of their product out. Pretty much just the basics for now.
Chocolate Base (Clear)-VT
French Vanilla Ice Cream-VT
I actually hate everything banana, even with regular food, but I did fell in love with a banana pudding and that's what I'm looking for. Most vaping banana taste like monkey butt too me, its horrible, so I'm very excited about that one lol
Ok, I understand how most of us know what dirty gym socks and human butts taste like, but how in the world do you know what a monkey's butt tastes like???
That will be forever my secret lol
The VTA creamy custard is the only one I tried and was very disappointing. It isnt especially creamy, or custardy.....but it is very banana tasting, and not in a particularly good way either.
I have it, but haven’t tried it. I have heard about the banana thing going on. I’ll get it to it eventually.....
Not sure if you tried it yet, and I'll do some more testing on it, maybe my percentage is off. So far it tastes like chewing on banana flavored condom. Not what I was looking forward too today, but hey who knows, I might get used too it lol.
Thumbs up for orange tang
Speak for yourself Sir!
My extensive internet search perhaps reveals eStorm's employment...
Due to the confidentiality we all enjoy here at VU, I cannot disclose which (if either) may be eStorm.
Crap....I forgot to order that one.
I did a half hour ago . I also ordered three of thier chocolate flavors, butter cream frosting, and....I forgot lol. One more I think.
Their buttercream is damn good. Did you get chocolate mousse? Also a winner.
Yeah, I got chocolate mousse, base, and custard. The one I couldn't think of was milk froth coffee. I'm gunna give @wllmc's toffee/coffee recipe a go.
These chocolates smell really good .
Chocolate mousse is the bomb....I have the other two and haven’t got around to them. And I have dark chocolate.....also haven’t tested it yet....
I have been enjoying VT fruitcake @ 5%. Really taste the booze, I think brandy. And it tastes just like fruitcake. I'm going to try adding a hint of marzipan, kinda like wedding cake.
I love the golden syrup, Choc mouse base, carrot and I absolutely love the milkshake base. The milkshake base has a thickness feel to your mouth, and is a neutral taste in which you can add different flavours at a time, banana, choc, straw etc. Doesn't need anything else because the base is just right, imo.
When we were kids, mum used to make golden syrup dumplings. Omg they were good. Trying to come up with a vape recipe to replicate:
Method. Combine 2 cups (500ml) water, brown sugar, 1/4 cup (60ml) golden syrup and 50g butter in a large saucepan. Stir over a low heat until melted. Meanwhile, use your fingertips to rub in 50g butter into flour. Bring the sauce to the boil then drop heaped dessert spoonfuls of the mixture into the sauce.
Doughy, buttery, syrupy, warming.
Maybe a donut flavour, or zeppola??
I like this idea.....definitely Zeppola. Or WF deep fried dough. Or maybe Joy? VT has a golden syrup flavor that’s really good. So the sauce cooks the dough? Interesting.....
VT Golden syrup 2%
FA Zeppola 2%
WF deep fried dough 1%
FA Butter .5%(or TFA 1%)
TFA Brown Sugar .5%
A start, perhaps.....I’ll play with it some.
Yes wild gypsy, the dough cooks in the syrup. I have the flavours you mentioned except deep fried dough. The dough in the dumplings aren't fried, kinda simmered in the syrup. They are really light and fluffy. But your recipe sounds close.
