    So I just got in a few big bottles of my FW favorites and, on an impulse and against my better judgement, sprang for a 4oz bottle of Captain Crunch. I never go that big with a flavor I've never tried, but I'm a big fan of the cereal, you see.

    The bad news: It doesn't taste like Cap'n Crunch to me. Boo!
    The good news: It tastes freaking amazing.

    10%, 50/50, 10mg with a cotton-wicked Russian + Nemesis @ ~15W:

    I'm getting almond, brown sugar, and vanilla with a delicate bakery note on the exhale; almost like freshly-baked biscotti. Sweet enough to classify as a dessert vape, yet not so sweet that it'll keep me from vaping it all day. Which is what I've been happily doing.

    Now I'm super-curious about the others: Apple Jacks and Rice Krispies. Please chime in if you've tried either of these! I'm going to go ahead and strongly recommend the Captain for anyone who likes bakery-type flavors. I'm quite pleased with myself for ordering 4oz of it. :D

    I just ordered several more FW flavors... Wish I'd known Captain Crunch was that good. Oh well I will get it on my next order.

    Rice Krispies is spot on at 15%! Apple Jacks is great but I thought it needed a bit more cinnamon so I add about 5% Cinnamon Roll to 15% Apple Jacks. Perfect!

    I liked One on One's flavorings, esp. the rice crispie

    I haven't tried One on One's stuff. Have you tried FW's? If so, how do they compare? The Rice Crispies from FW is excellent.

    I owe Pete a big thanks for suggesting the Rice Krispies flavor. At first I wondered about it, but knowing Pete, I went ahead and ordered some. It is absolutely amazing. I'm using it in all sorts of recipes now. Who would of thunk, huh? Thank you Pete54!!!

    Glad you like it buddy. It's one of those flavors you'd never think of trying, but once you do, you're glad you did.

    Apple Jacks and Rice Krispies incoming! I've been absolutely murdering this poor bottle of Captain Crunch. Added some of FW's peanut butter, and yep... Peanut Butter Crunch! Tastes more like a pb cookie actually... Going to try some strawberry in my next batch, see if I can get some Crunch Berries going on.

    Have some Captain Crunch on the way too. After the Rice Krispies I am a true believer. I'll soon be ordering direct from the mfg and will have the semi back up to the garage to off load the 55 gal. drums.....lol.

    I'll be mixing up some AJ and Rice Krispies this weekend if all goes according to plan. Also... Honey Nut Cheerios recently showed up at Vaporrenu, so hopefully it'll show up at my door for the upcoming mixing session. :D

    Dang, I need more bottles!

    Wow... a new cereal to try...... thanks for the heads up. Didn't notice it at my usual vendor. Wish FW offered smaller bottle sizes then I could order everything from them. Please post your thoughts of the Honey Nut Cheerios flavor...... TIA

    Vaporrenu.com is owned by FW, so you can get all of the stuff on FW's main site (and then some) from there! 30ml bottles of flavoring for $6.50. Their tobacco's are a little steeper at $9.00/30ml, but I only use one tobacco, and it comes from VZ.

    I'll have to spend a little quality time on the Vaporrenu site. Quite a list of flavors!! I've been using more and more FW flavorings so it will be nice to be able to get their products in a size more suited to me. It has become so hard to keep track of all the sites and what is availabl
    Thanks for the info.

    Aha! Finally, one that I don't care for!

    I tried FW's Honey flavoring a few months back, and found it didn't taste like honey at all to me; for whatever reason, it tasted more like grape soda (!!!) and overpowered everything I mixed it with, even at 1%. Unfortunately the Honey Nut Cheerios has the same honey flavoring in it and, as I suspected, it overwhelms any taste of nut or Cheerio. I can barely detect a hint of the underlying grain flavor that appears to be the "base" flavoring for all the varieties of FW cereal on the exhale, and then that dang honey smacks me in the mouth again and I lose it.

    I mixed this up last night at 10%, UC-steeped for 2 hours, and let it sit uncapped for 24 afterwards. I've found that this is roughly equivalent to a 2-week steep with all my other recipes. I'm going to let the remaining 6ml sit for a while longer and come back to it, but I'm not terribly hopeful as I've already been through this with a 6% Honey mix: 2 months steep and still grape soda. :(

    Three out of four ain't bad! The Apple Jacks, Rice Krispies, and Captain Crunch are winners. The RK in particular is a perfect neutral and sweet "grainy" starting point for a few recipes I've got bouncing around in my skull. I've already tried it with the FW Peanut Butter, and it trumps the Captain in that recipe. Tastes EXACTLY like Peanut Butter Crunch and makes me want to drink milk while I'm vaping it!

    I have to agree with retrox on the Rice Krispies. It is a great secret ingredient when mixed with other flavors. My best Vanilla Custard recipe now uses it at 11% over 8% FW Vanilla Custard with 1% EM. I call it Klondike due to the golden color of the resulting juice. Just excellent IMO.
