    So far nothing has been close to be honest. However many amazing recipes have been made in the trying, a few of which for some are better than Boba's

    Seems #7 is going to be a good tasting alternative.


    Here are the seven (plus a Gorilla Juice) Clone recipes that were tested by at least 14 vapers. The real Boba's was always vaped first and all others were tried against it and never in the same order.

    RBA dripping atties were used.

    Other important notes,
    - not all flavorings were 100% VG
    - all bases were 12mg at 100% VG
    - 15% flavor to base
    - B&M Plus = Ecig Express
    - Tobacco Express Captain = Ecig Express
    - Black Honey Tobacco = Ecig Express
    - Coconut = Capella
    - Cotton Candy = LorAnn
    - Chocolate Fudge Brownie = Capella
    - Cinnamon Danish Swirl = Capella
    - Graham Cracker = Capella
    - Bannana Nutbread = FlavorArt
    - Cherry = Canvape Pro Series?
    - Almond Oil = LorAnn
    - Sweetner = Ethyl Maltol Crystals in VG
    - Steep time one week through to three weeks by end of trial

    Boba's Clone #1
    Black and Mile Plus 60.0%
    Cotton Candy 20.0%
    Coconut 20.0%

    Boba's Clone #2
    Black and Mile Plus 42.9%
    Cinnamon Danish Swirl 21.4%

    Vinegar 7.1%

    Boba's Clone #3
    Black and Mile Plus 42.9%
    Cinnamon Danish Swirl 21.4%

    Boba's Clone #5
    Black and Mile Plus 25.0%
    Chocolate Fudge Brownie 25.0%
    Coconut 12.5%
    Vape Wizard 37.5%

    Snuck this one in there to mix the taste buds up
    Gorilla Juice Clone #6
    Black and Mile Plus 30.0%
    Black Honey Tobacco 30.0%
    Banana Nutbread 30.0%
    Sweetener 10.0%

    Boba's Clone #7

    Almond oil 10.0%
    Cherry 15.0%
    Graham Cracker 20.0%
    Cotton Candy 10.0%


    The results for "rate which is most like the orginal" scored in the following order (most to least);

    #7, #3, #4, #8, #2 #5, #1, #8

    Some comments;
    #1 "Tastes more like Bounty Hunter"
    #2 "Flat, almost tasteless"
    #3 "needs more cinamon"
    #4 "not boba's but can I order 100 ml?"
    #5 "Yuk"
    #6 "I think you messed up, that's Gorilla Juice, no really."
    #7 "Don't tell anyone, ssh!"
    #8 "Like it better than Boba's"

    I've never had Boba's. But I mixed up a batch of number 7 (with a couple of unavoidable substitutions) and it made quite a good juice. Freshly made, it seems a bit weak at 15%, but I'll let it sit awhile before making any final determination.

    Thank you for the recipe!!

    So to make Bobas #7 I am supposed to mix the flavorings first? Like I want 30ml of flavoring so I mix that up based off the percentages but how long do I let theses flavorings steep before I mix up my batch with nic to let steep? Sorry for the dumb question but I want to get this right.
