    Never even heard of it. I looked around online at descriptions and reviews...

    Nothing about Jimmy the Juiceman's flavors give a clue to exclude or identify any particular flavoring brand. Smart guy, Jimmy.
    I really doubt he is using a premixed rainbow sherbet flavor or someone would have said so by now.

    Most rainbow sherbet includes raspberry (pink), lime (green), orange or mandarin (orange), and lemon or pineapple (yellow) - in fairly equal portions.

    If you have real Shurb and some of those fruit flavorings, you can figure this out. Smell a flavoring, vape Shurb and see if you can identify that basic flavor in it. Repeat for the most common rainbow sherbet flavors. At least that would give you a good start. Then you think about the sweet/sour balance.

    So rainbow sherbet sounded pretty good for this warm day. I mixed one up with FA flavorings, and I'm liking this combination a lot.

    "Maybe It's a Rainbow"
    2% Vienna Cream
    0.75% Pineapple
    0.5% Custard
    0.5% Mandarin
    0.25% Lime Cold Pressed
    0.25% FA Raspberry

    Lime and Raspberry are stronger than Mandarin, and Pineapple is the least potent, so this is a fairly balanced mix of those 4 flavors when mixed like this. Custard adds sweet/cream and some citrus zip. Vienna is working as a sweet, ice cream type background. I like it well enough to vape a tank or two (I'm not a huge fan of fruit flavors). Double this strength would be too much for most people; as-is might be too light. It's right for me.

    As I said earlier, I've never tried Sherb, but this is definitely rainbow-sherbet-ish. Maybe it can give you some ideas. With luck, someone who has tried Sherb will have some comments for you.

    Do you have those flavors (FA or other brands)? I know you've been wanting sherbet for a while, give it a shot if you have 'em.

    This sounds pretty good!! However, I don't remember tasting pineapple in sherbet. So, if I were to substitute CAP juicy lemon, lemon meringue, or FA lemon sicily, which would you recommend and at what percentage?

    not sure if @hkdupcivic means a flavor like orange tic tacs or like rainbow sherbet. Just in case it's useful for him/her: http://vapingunderground.com/threads/hics-orange-tic-tacs.3930/

    edit: after reading the thread again, I think hkdupcivic is looking for an orange flavor like the (probably the outside layers of) orange tic tacs. Using about a 2:1 ratio of FA Orange: FA Mandarin will get you that. IMO FA Orange is the key to that tic-tac orange, but the mandarin gives it strength to stand up to other flavors.

    The yellow part of rainbow sherbet is usually either lemon or pineapple. If you want lemon, I'd slide FA Lemon Sicily in there instead of Pineapple. I don't think I'd change the percent. I'd avoid the sweeter Cap version and the crust flavor in their Lemon Meringue Pie. Lemon Sicily is a very clean-tasting lemon, not chemical-like or syrupy. I think it would work well. If you try it, let us know how you like it!

    It's almost like it should be a "choose your fruits" sherbet. If you look around online and in stores at rainbow sherbet, lots of flavor combos are used. There really isn't a standard combination. I hope some people interested in a rainbow sherbet will try some of these ideas and tell us which brand (or vendor liquid) you're comparing to, and how you like the vape version.

    I can tell you a couple things about JTJM's shurb, but not much without revealing anything I shouldn't. All I can say is there are multiple flavor vendors in this juice. Owner of my local vape shop and him are buddy buddy (Chicagoland).

    @HeadInClouds Thanks for the suggestion on the lemon. I have all the other flavors so I will be trying this. Also, if people are trying to recreate Shrub I believe JTJM's mixes are around 60PG/40VG
