    Made up JFM development strawberry airhead about a week ago. Couldn't taste any strawberry as a S&V and still can't today. Not sure how to tamper with this one. Raise up the percentages or add sweetener. Did both for tfa strawberry and it worked perfectly.

    I have had a lot of trouble getting Strawberry to come through. I recently bought Shisha Strawberry, mixed it as single flavor & there was flavor but I could not identify it as Strawberry. But once I added watermelon suddenly I could taste Strawberry. Small amount of watermelon & it was Strawberry, too much watermelon it was a great watermelon. Still toying with it all but I'm figuring it out as I go.

    That's odd. Shisha is the only one I can taste without going crazy. Try my strawberry Fluff recipe

    I really like Shisha Strawberry, but for some reason, when I'm taking a vape break at work, if I hit shisha strawberry more than three times in a row, it tastes like Play-Doh. So I can only hit it like 2 times and then have to take like a five minute break and then hit it two times again. I don't like this, I found a different way to get my strawberries taste really really good. l use like 4-6% FA strawberry, in 2% of Capella's sweet strawberry. I use this in virtually all of my strawberry recipes now because it always turns out perfect. Of course I like to add FA marshmallow in as well just because I've gained Sweet Tooth for those strawberries.

    I've tried 6% FA strawberry and 1/2 - 1% of shisha strawberry, and it's very good but I still get that faint Play-Doh taste. When I make juice for others, they love it so I roll with it

    I've only used it once so far and that was at 2%. I'm going to treat it like any other marshmallow and use it in low % as an enhancer. Sorry I don't have more to offer right now.

    There's a study done by Cornell university that concluded if you drink coffee, it actually alters your taste buds and makes it harder to taste sweet flavors. It actually makes you crave more sugar. I think this might have something to do with not being able to taste strawberry flavors.

    I'm going to mix every single strawberry flavor i have stand alone and make note of what i taste. This way i have notes for times like today where i wanna experiment again, but can't remember what i did months ago.

    That's what I'll do for all of the orange/citrus flavors I'm getting. Yes I did go a little overboard. Please don't judge. lol Thanks for the idea Mykreign.

    That would be great. Thank you. I think I have about a dozen citrus coming in today, maybe more. I also have 3 apples I'm eager to get into. Been chasing a decent apple since I started vaping.

    I gave up on strawberry, I know its everyone's favorite but most of them taste like bubble bath to me, or extremely artificial candy like, some are undetectable as you just said. I did hear that the sweet strawberry by purilum is amazing. I have not tried it yet because nicotine river takes forever with my order. Maybe somebody has tried it and can chime in, or I'll update whenever I get it. I know my post wasn't much of help as usual, but thought I still share what I heard/read lol.

    Cromwell turned me onto the strawberry from Flavor Concentrates. Haven't tasted the tester yet. We were posting in the pineapple thread a week or so ago.

    I have. How are you doing now? Lol

    What is so goddamm unique about strawberry? What exactly do they do to make it? What makes it different from other concentrates? I know there’s other flavors people can’t taste or it tastes crappy(ie joy, glazed donut, etc....), but strawberry seems the most prominent. There has to be some combo out there that works!

    I believe most of them use a chemical called ethyl maltose. Some peoples taste buds can't pick it up.
