    I have used a NET for my base when mixing that sort of recipe. Otherwise, possible bases are biscuits, cereals, cookies, shortbreads, Croissants, Cannoli shell, etc etc. Sometimes you will want to taste the base as part of your recipe and sometimes you just want it there to create base. Depending on the recipe chocolate could be used as a base. Certain boozy recipes use the booze to create base even though it's the top taste. Kinda hard to explain and just my opinion

    I can't say that fruits come out flat to me but I just can't vape fruit solo no matter how good it is. I do however mix with fruits a lot.

    Newer vapers require a lot of flavor in their mixers. When you been vaping as long as me less is more is the rule almost always.

    Have you tried cactus at low % with your fruits? It can add juiciness to your fruits and brighten up a bland mix.

    I'm undecided so would you kind folks pick for me? Should I try my Strawberry Biscotto or my Rhuberry Cannoli? I'll be back in 20 minutes to see if I have any picks.

    Cannoli! I bought some rhubarb and haven't used it yet. That sounds good!

    This is so true.

    It's interesting, when I bought retail juices I never ever purchased anything with any kind of fruit in it. Since I have started DIY though I have been toying around with all kinds of fruits and I am finding them rather enjoyable in a "change of pace" aspect.

    I really wish I got into DIY years ago. It's really made vaping fun and enjoyable again. I love following this thread.

    Fruit vapes are a change of pace for me too. Not particularly satisfying over the long run but they do break up the monotony of a boring rotation.

    The Rhuberry Cannoli is a winner. As soon as the tank is empty I will try the Strawberry Biscotto. Both mixes have steeped a month. I will post winners when done.

    I have used cactus. I don’t know how to explain it... just a fruit mix tastes like jam without toast, or a soda without carbonation. I’m going to try a couple 10mls of a few that I liked but didn’t love with added bakery notes. I have almond cookie. Think I’ll test that with one too. Kill 2 birds with one stone

    Yay! Well, only because I hope you love it, and will share the recipe. I haven’t tried the cannoli yet
