    Yes, please. The VT is pretty damn good....better than FW and Caps. I got a bunch of SA in my first order....I’ve heard really good things about the caramel and bananas flambé.

    I could have kept going lol. I stopped because of postage limits. Next time I might do two orders like Steve suggested, but even thirty dollars for shipping makes me cringe lol. It still costs me less than buying here, plus down here, the different sites don't carry such a large range. If I wanted everything I got from BCF, I would have to order from several sites.

    They do make it pretty convenient. There’s only a few flavors I order outside BCF....Jungle Flavors, mostly. And DIYFS for Holy Vanilla....expensive, but worth it. And, of course, Chefs for all the DAAP we can’t get in the states.....

    They have pretty good selection actually. I was surprised, after talking to other folks from the downunder, who claimed the selections were really limited.

    Have the concentrates recently become more widely available?

    I loved TFA Hazenut. Shame BCF doesn't carry it. Its more of a sweet cream with a little hazenut. It's awesome. FW is more like coffee creamer hazelnut. Not sure which cream would be nice with FA HN. I have Jungle Flavors Hazel and it's like authenic nut but I can't taste it good.

    I'm still trying to make sure I didn't leave something out. It's almost a given I'll forget something I wanted to try. I'm going to focus on what I actually go through a lot of and get bigger bottles.

    Mixed this up for the first time this morning, thanks to @Mykreign 's mention of cinnamon corn flakes:

    Cinnaflakes

    Bavarian Cream (TPA) 3%
    Cinnamon Spice (TPA) 2%
    Dairy Milk (TPA) 2%
    Glazed Donut (CAP) 1%
    Lemon Sicily (FA) 1%
    Orange Mandarin (TPA) 1%
    Super Sweet (CAP) 1%
    Sweet Cereal Flakes (TPA) 6%

    Total flavors as posted: 17%

    Those who don't love cinnamon quite as much would do well to reduce it to 1.25-1.5% tops. As listed, the cinnamon is prominent, but that's how I like it.

    This is gonna be good. Don't think it will need more than 3 or 4 days to get there.

    It is still under construction! Still happening! Just a little slower than I anticipated. Health stuff and all. But don’t worry! It's coming!

    That store has just got more in. The thing that I find here is that there isn't a one stop place that has everything you need, like BCF.

    I ended up using fa hazlenut, fa butterscotch, fa cream fresh and a touch of hangsen Italian cream. I don't know if it will work, but it smells good.
    I need to focus on that too lol. I did get a thirty ml CIN red hots and another thirty ml cream cheese icing. I don't usually get anything bigger than thirty, due to shipping costs etc.

    Yesterday I mixed
    hazlenut cream
    Krispy Kreme donut
    Italian nougat
    And @HeadInClouds choc cookie. I am vaping that now, and wow, I have not used my cocoa before. I thought I would not like it, but it is awesome. The cookie taste is just like home baked! Thanks for your recipe that I found on here.

    That reminds me....I picked up Jungle Flavors Cocoa for $0.99 a while ago, and never even smelled it yet. It needs my attention next time I'm playing with flavors.

    I got my vta carrot cake E juice out, I don't have the concentrate, I just ordered the juice to try. I know why I don't like it. It has a slight taste of sweetner that tastes artificial and kinda lingers. I opted out of added sweetener, so I wonder if they used it in the concentrate. I don't like artificial sweeteners in food and drink, I don't really even like Stevia. Can anyone else taste it in carrot cake?

    I didn't. It was alright but nothing special IMO. It'd been hyped up pretty good on Reddit. Most recently I tasted it in Caps Tangy Orange. It had that Splenda or Equal (Artificial Sweeteners) taste.

    I wish they didn't add sweetner to concentrate. I have read that wonder flavors do this too.

    Does caps hot cocoa have a milky tone with the cocoa? One flavor that I don't have is milk lol.
    What's the best milk? OOO milky undertones was not in stock at BCF. What's TFA dairy milk like?

    Dairy milk is pretty good. OOO is better, IMO, but most everyone used Dairy Milk before the introduction of OOO milky undertones. I’d go with that if you can’t get the OOO. Dairy Milk is a little thinner....maybe a tiny touch of FA fresh cream to bulk it up?

    Caps Hot Cocoa has a little milk in it. It’s been a while since I’ve used it, but I do remember a little milk/cream in there.

    The Carrot Cake needs help, for sure. I’m still trying to figure out what I want to do with it. I don’t get the fake sweetener out of it, tho. Maybe they add it to the finished juice?

    I ordered Tangy Orange in my last order......now a little apprehensive.

    A noob on Reddit attempted a review on it recently. It was short and to the point and cracked me up bigtime. They go the extra mile there and get all technical about it. What device, atty, wire, wick, ratios, percentages, ect...it's a bit much. The noob's attempt at a review was simply, "Spot on orange Tic-Tac". They gave him some shit but I thought it was hilarious.

    I'd go lower on the cream cheese icing, I think VTA carrot cake had some in it already, and it came out much too sweet......

    Wonder if caps hot cocoa can be subbed with fa cocoa?

    You can do anything you wish, but... The FA Cocoa is a harsher chocolate flavor (for me) and far away different from the Cap Hot Chocolate.


    Caps Hot Cocoa has a little milk in it. It’s been a while since I’ve used it, but I do remember a little milk/cream in there.

    I feel the same way. It can be used on a stand alone basis for a hot chocolate mix. wllmc's version is soooo much better.

    Just mixed this from ECF:

    “VT Lemon Maringue Tart - man that is tasty stuff. Tastes exactly (no surprise) like one of my favorite store bought liquids, "Sublime" by SVRF e-liquid, which is a lemon pastry. I mixed it at 6% with 1% INW Biscuit and 1% CAP Vanilla Custard V1.” @uthinkofsomething

    Finger tasted & it’s yum! Waiting for a reply on steep time.

    Edit: 1 week steep, hope I can hold out lol!

    I might not have said "harsh" but the Graham crackers I've tried get overwhelming to me after about a week. I noticed it even more with the VW Graham cracker. TFA isn't quite as strong as VW, but I've also backed off using any appreciable amounts, too.

    Coupled with the fact that I can't stand FA Cookie, I wonder if I have a problem with some bakery flavors in general.

    BCF order came in with replacements of low-to-empty flavors along with the ingredients I was lacking to make @VAPEROXX's Cornbread Puddin' v2 ...made a batch of it, but my sinuses are all blocked from allergies, so, I honestly can’t tell if I like it or not, lol.
