Mixed a 60ml of black licorice last night
Gremlin DIY one-shots. I picked up their 'HobGoblin" one shot a bit ago, got around to mixing it up couple days ago....wow, I'm really pleased with this one! Site describes it as a creamy orange. It's not a sharp or artificial orange flavor, no off-notes or orange wierdness.....just a really nice orange with cream. Really like this one. Bear in mind that Gremlin's commercial juices are mixed mostly at 20%, this one shot is recommended at 15-20%. I generally like my juice bolder than most, so I mixed mine at 20%....next time I'll try it at 18 and then 16%. Nice to find a one-shot that tastes so good right after mixing. $5 for a 30ml ain't too shabby. I try to get my concentrates from Gremlin DIY when I can, prices are good, selection is pretty large too, and the shipping is fairly fast. Based out of Washington state.
Mykreign, I'm wondering how your black licorice adventure is turning out?
Afraid I won't be much help here. No way am I putting that stuff in my tank
Someone I mix for requested it, so i bought Flavor West's. I can tell you that it smells awful lol.
I just do,
8% FW Black Licorice
0.6% Cap Super Sweet
Kind of reminds me of that old famous juice called 'Pluid'....always wanted to try that one but they all said you needed to dedicate an rda or tank to it alone, cause you'd never get the taste of that one out of it.
Finally got around to it. It's so much better as I truly find CAP Cake Batter revolting. I used FLV Cupcake Batter at 1% and it could probably go up to 1.5. As is, it's good, but it would be much better with something else such as fruit. It's a good base to work with as the flavors have come together.
Thanks for the update. I may have to try this out.
Mixed this up today as I’ve never made a Captain Crunch Cereal juice. It’s real good! Glad I made 60ml.
It didn’t state the steep time, so I figured I’ll give it a try & as a SnV it’s real good!
Edit: forgot to mention I didn’t add the sweetner.
I vaped Hangsen Fennel (tastes like licorice) for I-don't-know-how-many months. Got myself kinda burnt out on it, but it's been long enough now, I might enjoy it again.
Nothing wrong with licorice vapes. Not a thing.
I’ve got this mixed up.....so, so good! Two amazing mixers collaborating? Sign me up! Woot!
I finally mixed Old School and Cornbread Puddin. Also made some HIC Blue Razz with LB. Made a bunch of 3-2-1's in 10ML bottles.
I finally taste tested mix#2 on VTA carrot cake. I brought the mix down to 4% and added 1% Loranns cream cheese. All I taste is creamy diketones. I will wait another week to see if the carrot cake comes forth. If not, mix#3 will happen. I mixed at 60/40 (pg/vg ratio).
Do you think that it needs more "cake"? I have their fruitcake, and I need to add 2% yellow cake to the mix.
I know this has been asked before ( I even suggested a flavor I had seen positive reviews on ) but I'm going to ask again because I don't recall some of the suggestions plus I'm hoping that maybe those who asked originally will have some more feedback to share. Ah, I should probably pose the question eh?
I'm looking for suggestions for flavors from DIYFS. I know about Holy Vanilla and Holy RY4 but not so much about the other flavors they offer. TIA for any opinions offered!
I did the same as you - no sweetener - I love this stuff
No, right now its lacking spices. I may have to have to make the recipe myself. I might revert to spice cake. Right now I mixed some Vaping zone sponge cake (twinkie). I haven't tried it. I have used it before for making liquids for SIL but can't remember if I actually taste tested it.
I got Pound Cake, Gooey Butter Cake. Hard to recommend because I used in recipes. The Gooey Butter Cake, I did mix standalone @8% after a steep it’s not bad, I have to revisit. They gave me a 10ml of Holy PoPo, which was great as a standalone @8% Strawberry Donut with a bit of Caramel is how they describe it.
Gooey Butter Cake sounds good and Holy PoPo sounds interesting too, lol, it figures the latter would be some kind of doughnut.
I thought their (DIYFS) Marshmallow was super good. It's quite potent, so lasts a long time. For months I used it in place of other sweeteners and it worked really well, no chemical-y aftertaste like some artificial sweeteners. I also got Amaretto, which I've only used in recipes but seems very good, and Butterscotch, which I haven't yet opened. They threw in a Murph Berries flavor as a freebie, that one to me is nothing special, but I'm not all that fond of fruits anyway.
I like the PoPo a lot too. The three Holy's is all I've tried and they're all good.
I would skip the Gooey Butter Cake unless you are using in a mix. Tried it again (stand-alone) & meh.
Thanks nadalama, those sound good too! I like to use Marshmallow in lieu of sweetener also so that may be a possibility ... need to check how much MM ( other brands ) I have on hand. Hmm, Amaretto might be an option, I don't think I have that flavor from any vendor so far and I generally like boozy vapes so that's a bonus. Heck, I just like booze period being perfectly honest.
Thanks Just Frank, another vote puts it over the top and into the cart! If nothing else I could potentially use it to daze and disorient the cops should I happen to get pulled over.
Thanks for the update HD; removed from the cart. It has a good name, sad it couldn't live up to it.
It has a awesome name. The first week after mixing @11% the beginning of the inhale was good & the backend tasted like plastic, yuck. The bottle has been steeping since 10/24 I don’t hold high hopes for it. The plastic taste is gone. I’ve used in a mix for a recipe & it’s fine blended with everything else.
Anyone try Wonder Flavors Carrot cake yet?
Sounds good! If I may ask, what brand do you use? I love black licorice but I'm a keto/low carber and could use a fix.
I have it coming in my order. I will let you know!
BCF order came in today...just flew by the seat of my pants and made a Sour Gummy Worms recipe without using anything for reference and it seems to have turned out very well...I might go a little heavier on the gummy worms flavor next time, but for a first try I’m pleasantly surprised
Do things by the book...just be sure that you are the author
That's a lotta sour lol. Interested to hear what you think of caps new sour.
I tried the TFA-Sour in a previous fruity recipe and it didn’t come through at all, so, I figured I’d just use it to bump up the sour from Cap version and even though it seems heavy on the sour, it doesn’t come out tasting like it.
You can definitely tell it’s there..can feel it hit your tongue and make your mouth water, but is gone by the end of the exhale...they did a good job on it, if you ask me.

I might just go ahead an order. The SO aka hubs stated I should have enough flavors already. I don't think he realizes this is a obsession. I even went though my hardly used flavors and cannot/will not get rid of them.
I have never thrown or given away a flavor as one day I will use them. You fucking people have me thinking what can I make tonight that is a never before seen creation?
They just don't get it lol! Mine doesn't say anything, but he also hasn't seen my stash lol!
I have some sour that I ordered a year ago, but it is a powder you mix up in pg. I haven't even tried it yet, but I am going to now I remembered!
Nearly got the caps sour!
I was meaning to ask you re autoimmune stuff. I have been having horrible flares, and the weather is hot and humid. Do you feel worse in different weather? Almost tempted to go back on steroids
My carrot cake is all gone! Sixty mls worth!
My own recipe that hasn't sat for two years lol!
Mixed up some Candy Cane today. Yummy Holiday goodness. Simple too!
My BCF order has been sitting in Sydney customs all week! Can't wait to get it.
Yeah, shock us! Lol
I ordered these flavors from a UK site called drip hacks beg of the year. They used to sell flavor art under the name flavor hack or something. Really cheap, and not watered down. They had their own or another rebottle?? Anyway, they have this amazing sherbet flavor. I am going to mix it today. It is really fizzy. Need a break from cake. Going to add some fa lime tahity with the sherbet.
We are supposed to get a snow storm this weekend, and I am wondering how a Snowcreme juice would be.
Dairy milk 5%
I am still on a drug called Imuran so its hard to say. It is a older immune suppressant drug.I have minor aches and pains but nothing like before. I do a keto/low carb diet to help with inflammation as well. I gained a lot of weight on steroids(I have lost that weight). However, the drug I'm on can cause cancer among other things. One of the reasons I sometimes don't care about diketones, etc. I have better chances of lymphomas than respiratory diseases. My rheumatologist is on standby mode.
I just called the rheumatology department and they don't want me to have the steroids. I don't really like taking them, I bloat up like a beached whale, and that makes you feel yuck. Cool change coming tonight.
I added 2.5% Hangsen French Vanilla Ice Cream to this and mixed it up. Going to let it sit for a few hours and then see what happens. Initial taste from the bottle is really interesting, not quite what I expected. Not terrible, but interesting.
Mixed up 60ml of @VAPEROXX Cornbread Puddin’ v1 & 60ml of @wllmc Juice Strawberry Cheesecake & a 15ml tester of @Mykreign Strawberry Cheesecake.
Yeah, Charlottesville is supposed to get diddly squat. As usual.
