    I just got it myself, smells great but haven't had a chance to try it yet. What % did you use it at?

    Best packaging award goes to "Real Flavors". My package arrived a day early. Unfortunately, I can't mix until Monday. Sugar Cub, cinnamon toast and cinnamon roll pass the sniff test. I'm going to start out at 1.5%.

    I haven't tried it yet but it smells like a Slurpee to me, I think Cherry but I haven't had one of those in years, it is just what the smell reminded me off right away. It smells really good, I am going to mix some up today.

    Lol, yeah POWERFUL

    It has settled down nicely though, just barely in the background.

    Has anyone dilluted the Cheesecake? I am wondering what a good percentage would be. I am not too PG sensitive but normally like to keep my mixes 75vg and above. I am wondering if 50/50 with PG would be good, really have no idea on that.

    I have my default percentage for that at 0.5 after testing it as a single flavor at 1.5%. Some people recommend 0.25%.

    Tested at 1% on the Vengeance .2 coil at 35W.

    At a 3 day steep: a lovely bright sweet berry. This is my first experience with yumberry, and I'm not sure what the real thing tastes like. The flavor is similar to boysenberry to me, which has been until now my favorite. That type of bright refreshing sweet berry without any perfume or tart flavor. Seems to be a good percentage of flavor. I am going to mix another tester at 1.5% to see if I can push it a little stronger without adding perfume, just to see how well it will stand up in heavier bakery flavors.

    Time will tell if this stays the same strength or deepens a little with a steep. Already planning Yumberries & Cream, Yumberry Danish, Yumberry Cobbler, Yumberry Ice Cream, Waffles with Yumberries, PB & Yumberry Jam Sandwich.

    EDIT: At a 4 week steep. This flavor has surprisingly faded a little bit with the longer steep. Still bright and juicy, just not as strong. I will be using this as a S&V at around 1-1.5% as it's plenty strong as a SF. If using in something I will be steeping I would start at 1.5-2.5% SF. Starting point as a mixer for me will be at 1% and go up from there. Very refreshing, I'm liking it a lot. If you like boysenberry you will like this one.

    I get where your getting the boysenberry note but I do detect a cherry note as well. I am not a cherry fan but the Yumberry is good mixed at 2%, it is sort of like a mix of berries, hard to nail down exactly what it is.

    Have you tried the strawberry and rhubarb flavors? I mixed one up using 2% of each and it smells like it's gonna be light on flavor

    i don't have the rhubarb. the strawberry had good flavor for me at 1.5% when I tested it. ELR has the average mixing percent at 1.5 for recipes and 1.8 for single flavors. A lot of the people on the ELR forums say the strawberry is one of their favorites.

    Nice. I'll let it steep a week and see how it taste. I usually go heavy on flavor. For normal flavors I'm 15-20 %. I have like 4.2% total for the real flavors super concentrates in the mix I did yesterday. I'll let you know how it turns out

    The RF SC Strawberry is ine of my favorites as well, I could live with it and INW Shisha Strawberry as the only 2 in my mixing stash.

    1.5% comes out nicely in a mix for me, I have just started to use 0.50% RF SC Marshmallow to sweeten it up a bit and make it pop more. The Marshmallow almost give it that sugery sweetness that Shisha Strawberry has.

    I really didn't want to order more flavors but I have no will power....haha. I got these ordered today:

    Coffee cake
    Caramel cappuccino
    Cinnamon custard
    Vanilla ice cream
    Soda base
    And the freebie: Beaver Tail

    There is a lot more I want but so much I already have that I showed some restraint.

    Anyone try the Creme Brulee when it was only available in VG? I still have some of the VG but the INW version smells a lot tastier.

    Your trying to make that strawberry rhubarb custard huh....lol. they actually have a strawberry rhubarb flavor, you might want to email real flavors to ask for suggestions on the strawberry to rhubarb percentages they use or recommend.

    After you mix them so the flavors have a chance to develop.

    If you an impatient bastard like me though 1.5 to 2% each of Strawberry and Cream with 0.50% marshmallow makes for a tasty shake n vape, the cream gets richer with time though.

    I have never UC'd or heat steeped alcohol flavors. I haven't heat-speed steeped anything since last fall as I went overboard mixing batches and have lots of juice on hand. I am still vaping stuff mixed last October thru December. I mix em and forget em when it comes to full sized batches but I have tons of juice steeping.

    My 20ml testers I start testing usually a day or two after mixing, then once a week or so for at least a month. Early in the steep process they don't have much smell (or vape flavor) and have an odd characteristic that gives me a heavy chest feel like I get when vaping 80vg or higher juice. Most of them come into their own in the 3 - 4 week range. I have 2 sets of 7 testers ready to be combined to franken-recipes, 1 set of 7 I combined last week, and 19 more un-tested flavors to test (1 set of 7 + 2 sets of 6). These franken-recipe testers I have been doing the last couple months mean I haven't mixed an actual recipe in about 3 months and I still have 2 - 3 liters of steeped juice including them in my cabinet.

    The Super Concentrates are they pg based? When you input the flavorings in ejuice calculators it asks you if the flavor is pg or vg based.

    I'm new to Real Flavors, I took advantage of the 3 free flavors that @MysticRose posted, to try. I read through most of this thread & am excited to try Real Flavors.

    I enjoy their flavors. You have a choice to buy SC it mean super concentrate. The other i think is VG. I always buy the PG one. I hate waiting for my juice to steep. :)

    The super concentrate are not pg based, they are what they used in the VG flavors. They use to be called raw extracts if that helps explain it. I just use PG as the carrier in my calculator, you do wind up with a higher vg blend than anticipated but it has worked out for me.

    Some do contain a small percentage of alcohol, some PDO and maybe some other carriers.

    thanks, they don't tell you on their site what the base is. So for the flavors on the ejuice calculator I'll just use pg as the carrier.

    Got my freebies, I mixed up the Cinnamon Roll at 5% standalone, tried it right away & it's not flavorful enough so I'll just let it steep for 2 weeks.

    Haven't done anything with the Taffy & Watermelon yet. Ideas?

    On ELR and All The Flavors the average usage for Cinnamon Roll is around 2 to 2.5%. Maybe the 5% muted it out. I'm finding myself to be moving to the less is more group with flavoring, especially with FLV and FA and that may be the case with RF SC flavors.

    I just got my freebies and have not had a chance to try them yet.

    Would you mind letting me know when you do have a chance to mix it up? Thanks cos that would be easy to fix all I would have to do is add in more nic, pg & vg to it & have it at 2.5%.

    I just got the RFSC Coconut, someone over at ELR told me it was a Sweet Creamy Coconut so tossed it into my last order. I have only tried it in a recipe to replace INW Cocopilada to make it a 100% RFSC mix but it still needs steeping so too early to tell.

    Here is an example of a mix with almost all RFSC and a total of 6.8% flavoring that has a ton of flavor:

    http://e-liquid-recipes.com/recipe/1477212/Lava Flow RFSC

    This is the mix I replaced INW Cocopilada with RFSC Coconut, as a shake n vape I like the INW better but this mix needs a week or 2 to steep.

    The RFSC Marshmallow has been outstanding to me, really adds a sweetness to mixes at only 0.50%, great to make a strawberry pop. That above mix is sweeter than I personally like it but I can't stop vaping it.

    I have been finding that with a lot of the cinnamon flavors all I can taste is cinnamon, no roll, toast, bread pudding and what not. The Bread Pudding in the VG line was excellent, just weak so you had to use 12 to 15%. I was hoping the SC version would be the same, just at a lower % but it has lost something along the way. I have cinnamon roll and tried it as 3% but again, all cinnamon, no roll.

    I think a lot of people are going into Real Flavors SC as single flavor mixes because of how there named. I have found that they work better in mixes with other flavors, that is when 1 to 3% range makes sense. Some are real strong like the Cheesecake, Brown Sugar and Baked Bread, these are more than enough at 1/2% or less. Some are weak like Rice Krispies Treat, Twinkie and Fried Dough, those flavors needs help in a mix IMO.
    The only flavors from RFSC I use in single flavor mixes is the Butter Crisp, Fruit Pebbles, Paczki and Beaver Tail so far, those are all pretty good between 3.5 and 6% by themselves but they also work well in mixes.

    I like a decent amount of RFSC flavors and some are just so so but won't replace my normal favorites. Like every brand they have there hits and misses. Some really do benefit from steeping like most flavors but some will fade over time which is what happened to Pink Candy which is frickin delicious but after sitting for 3 months the flavor was gone.

    Bummer, I was hoping they would be good as single flavors. Cos then I'll have to look for recipes, as I haven't ventured into mixing my own recipes. I need to follow a recipe so Real Flavors is not good for me if it has to be used in a recipe. If you come up with something to do with Cinnamon Roll could you please share? Thanks

    I'm not sure since I haven't used real flavors cinnamon roll yet. I just used a recipe I had and replaced cap cinnamon danish swirl with cinnamon roll RF and lowered the % a little.

    The original recipe gets better with a steep but I never let anything steep really lol.

    Just try it when you mix it and see if it's good.
