    Smoky, I’m so happy you’ve got one shots. Right now it’s about all I feel really comfortable with. Plus, I get an idea of how the recipe tastes.

    You’ve got amazing flavors! I wish I’d known sooner, but I’ll treat myself to a bunch for the holidays. Really looking forward to these! :hug::hug: for these.

    Edit: I placed an order just now.

    Mixed 30ml each of Caramel Waffle Cappuccino, Dubble Bubble (pink bubblegum), and the new Cornflake Tart impersonator.

    Jury's out on the CFTI. Had to add another 1% of strawberry to it, and had just received JF Strawberry Sweet (which I forgot about), so I used that. Might have been a mistake. It's a little tart to me. Might have to offset it with some Cap Strawberry Taffy!

    ETA: It's pretty good to vape - tastes better than it does on the back of my hand. I'm wondering if it needs about 1% of Hangsen FVIC, but that's going to put total flavors at 20%. I'm trying these days to not mix quite so heavily.

    Cornflake Tart Remix

    Almond Cookie (WF) 1%
    Butter Cream (Cap) 2%
    Butterscotch Natural (FW) 1.5%
    Cereal 27 (Cap) 3%
    Glazed Doughnut (Cap) 1.5%
    Maple Syrup (TFA) 2.5%
    Marshmallow (FA) 1.5%
    Strawberry (Red Touch) (FA) 3%
    Strawberry Sweet (JF) 1%
    Super Sweet (Cap) 0.42%
    Tutti Frutti Deluxe (TFA) 1%
    Vanilla Pudding (Flv) 1%

    Total flavors without Hangsen FVIC: 19.42%

    I think this is at a place where I should leave it for a few days and see what the strawberries do.

    ETA: I think y'all know - I don't buy eliquid - so anything that I come up with as a remix is just my own concept of what I think would be a good mix to fit the profile of the bought eliquid. I'm not trying for clones because I'm just not going to buy eliquid.

    ETA2: I added a tiny bit of Super Sweet.

    This looks wonderful. I need to get a couple of the flavors. I have been wanting to try the Cereal 27 for awhile now.

    I haven't tried it yet, still waiting on nicotine to come in the mail... I did try it with lower % graham cracker and v custard, and it was too light, but not bad

    That’s how I felt about the Crom Custard, but like an idiot I had added extra cream (TFA Whipped Cream) to the Cap VC and Vanilla Whipped Cream. I ended up having to throw in some LB Vanilla Cream Tobacco and that helped “darken” it a bit.

    It’s almost like bumping into you and chatting about what we’ve been cooking or baking!

    Obviously I might change my mind as this steeps, but right now I'm thinking if I mix this again, I'll probably use TFA Sweet Cereal Flakes instead of Cereal 27. Just have to see if the twang I'm picking up from it steeps out. Some kind of a little funky chemical taste.

    ETA: I think what I'm tasting in Cereal 27 is acetyl pyrazine. Doesn't agree with me. Makes my lips a little numb. I'll definitely use TFA SCF next time.

    One flavor I know is a good addition to make CC richer is TFA French Vanilla Deluxe. Just sayin...

    Thanks, I’ll try it. I’ve only ever heard of CC as is. I did end up adding about 2% more Cap VC since the VCT didn’t add more density.
    The Kings Custard is yummy, though. I bought 240ml of the one shot during the sales. (Lest I run out anytime soon. Lol)

    Ooh, that looks neat. I bought a German Flavors Fig in one of my first orders of flavors/nic, but I’ve never used it yet.

    I am psyched to get your one shots! :banana: :happy dance:

    I made some testers for these ones-
    • FW- Pineapple
    • FW- Pineapple (Natural)
    • FW- Creamy Coconut
    • CAP- Sweet Currant
    Currants aren't popular where I live. I have no idea what they're supposed to taste like. I used 4% and didn't expect what I tasted. I was thinking sweet, jammy, red berries. What I got was really a funky almost tropical something-or-other. Maybe I just over flavored or maybe I just don't know what a currant is supposed to taste like :D.

    I got the FW in attempt to get closer to Naked 100's Lava Flow.

    I had one of these :idea: :idea::idea:lastnight. I could be wrong though. I've been trying to find the flavors in the only commercial eliquid I've been buying for years strait. Its called Propaganda Blue Frost (Formerly Blue Slushee). A while back I was confident that I found the raspberry they used (CAP V2). But it's only one part (potentially). Lastnight I leaked some out and tasted it strait trying to concentrate on what the another part was. What I tasted was green candy, or atleast I thought I did lol. So I checked out a flavor review for plain CAP Lime. What I read makes a lot of sense so I gotta get some to try. This project has gotten me excited for nothing a lot of times though. Hopefully this is what I've been missing.

    Not sure how the German flavors compare to flv... but tinker around.
    This one took me a very long time to get right. It's based off a recipe from 1943 from my grandmother. :D:blowkiss:

    Here's Element Vape's description:

    Hype - Cool Blue Frost by Propaganda E-Liquid (formerly Ice Blue Slushee by Propaganda E-Liquids) is an icy variant of their blue slushee, combining a nice gentle menthol chill on top of the lusciously sweet blue raspberry flavor, offset by a hint of cream to balance the tangy eJuice.

    Didn't know if you'd seen this detailed a description. Hope it helps.

    (Makes me think of Blue Razz plus FW Ecto Cooler plus Vanilla Swirl plus Wintergreen or Spearmint plus a touch of Koolada, but I haven't sampled the original)

    Has anybody added either whipped or fresh cream to their peanut butter flavors? Not overly impressed with the peanut butter custard mix I made, wondering if some cream and maybe caramel or butterscotch will liven things up a bit

    What did you do for the PB? What custard are you using?

    either of your suggestions will “liven things up”. Lol! Caramel/butterscotch will also sweeten things up. I would probably use WF Caramel butter at 2%. Nice, creamy and a little dark sweetness.

    I used FA Peanut Butter 5%, DX peanut butter 5%, V1 Custard 3% and some V1 French Vanilla 2% in my first mix

    I do have WF Caramel butter, will give that a try. Thank you

    So I’m assuming you meant FLV peanut butter. At 5%, that’s gonna dry everything up. Drop it to 0.5-1%. The DX is fine where it is.

    Thanks @Just Frank for inspiration! I just could not stop myself once the idea was in my head.

    Chiller!

    Ecto Cooler Natural (FW) 3.5%
    Koolada 10% (TFA) 0.75%
    Marshmallow (FW) 2% (cut in half for other, stronger brands like FA) (I mixed this at 3% initially, and surprisingly it's not too sweet for me. I thought it would be.)
    Murph Berries (DIYFS) 3% (blueberry & raspberry mix - if you have to sub individual berries, I'd go with 1.75% raspberry and 1.25% blueberry)
    Super Sweet (Cap) 0.5%
    Vanilla Swirl (TFA) 4%
    Wintergreen (FW) 2% (add 0.75-1% extra if you use TFA)

    Total flavors: 15.75%

    Almost a sweet berry-mint-citrus milkshake; sub half of the Vanilla Swirl with a rich ice cream (like Hangsen FVIC), and it'll be there. Lighter and more refreshing like this, I think!

    Koolada will calm down after a 12- to 24-hour steep. It's harsh and a little perfume-y at first.

    I don't have and generally don't like spearmint, but sure seems like it would actually be good in this mix, in place of the wintergreen. Creme de Menthe would work, too, but depending on the brand, percentage would have to be adjusted. FW CdM I'd use at least 3%. It fades a LOT, and might have to be boosted a few weeks down the road. Before I make more Butter Mint Milkshake, I want a CdM that doesn't fade.

    Just mixed a 250ML of Flavorless for my Sweetie and I am weaning her down so this batch was 9MG. Made a smaller 60ML of 9MG so she could vape it and see is it enough for her. Next time we go for 6MG~!

    I hadn't seen that, thanks. There's two versions. I love the plain one. But around the time everybody started make "Iced" or "On Ice", Prop rolled out theirs too. I figured it would be just koolada or WS23. Nope, it's that dreadful menthol flavor. It covers up everything I love about the regular one, it's just so strong. The only reason I found out is because EJV sent me the wrong bottles.

    That bit about the cream, I hadn't considered. I'll keep trying until I get close. I know one thing for sure, there's no blue razz concentrate used in it. I should know lol. I got just about every one I could get my hands on. I got pretty much every raspberry flavor too trying to find a match. Out of desperation, I found V2 CAP. It tastes just like it while V1 had zero flavor for me (sweet airy nothingness). I got V1 way before V2 and wasn't confident that I would taste it either.

    CAP Lime isn't very popular. ConcreteRiver describes it a cross between lime and margarita mix bordering on lime candy. Lastnight when I licked it I was like whoa, "Is that lime!?" There's something else besides raspberry in PBF but it's been unidentifiable. I've tried everything from kiwi to peach, to dragon fruit, to fricken grenadine, ect. and nothings been close. So hopefully this lime idea gets me closer.

    This has been a challenge of mine since I started mixing. Those blue razz flavors I started out with almost made me quit some were so bad lol. I'm not going for, oh that's close enough, I've been on a (very slow but steady) sorta side mission to find any flavors that might be used in PBF. If I can find the flavor elements used, then I can play with ratios/percentages. I'm sort of going after Lawa Flow too now that way, but that's recent.

    All this Mint and Menthol talk made me crave some mint. So I just added an ML or so of my Naturally Extracted Mint into my tank. Thanks guys~!

    I admire your patience! Good luck with it.

    Something to think about and perhaps try....FA Custard, custard with a little lemon kick? Just enough lemon to put a buzz on that Lime.

    I should be quiet. I don't know what I'm talking about. Hard to get the brain and mouth to stop sometimes! lol

    1-2% then raise it, if it is TFA/ the flavor apprentice ;)

    As for adding custard... you want to use about the same, if under for your pb concoction :)
    It has been done, and you could search ELR for recipes with pb.. :)

    Ohhhhh, ok. Gotcha. For most, FA means Flavour Art. TFA is The Flavor Apprentice. That changes things! Smoky’s correct, then. You can use it around 1-3% to back up the DX.

    A few drops of saline helps a lot. Peanuts should be a touch salty and it also helps with the dryness of the peanut butter flavors.

    Flavorah might be the one you’re looking for? I’ve used it before and I found it does fade a touch, but not nearly as bad as FW.

    Thanks for that, being new to mixing I didn't know about adding saline.

    Thanks @wildgypsy70 and @Smoky Blue for the help!

    I've dropped the TFA peanut butter and added just a bit of caramel and cream to my latest mix. Left out the Custard since that's pretty much all I vape atm. We'll see how this 120ml tastes and I can increase or decrease as needed.

    I think one of your super powers is breaking down a juice profile into flavors at 30 paces! :awesome:

    Was Chiller the one where they showed a big six fingered hand? If we were selling this juice, we’d have to put that on the label!

    Just mixed up 2 60ML bottles of my Tobacco. Have it sitting in a hot water bath to speed infusion.
