    Nicaraguan Viso has those subtle chocolate notes on the exhale. I thought it would be perfect for chocolate mixes but to my surprise I couldn't make it work with chocolate. It's possible I wasn't using the right chocolates. I never tried it with Glamour. Might have to revisit that. What % of Viso, Glamour, and caramel are you using?

    Haven't tried it but this is from a review:
    "Flavor Description: Artificial strawberry base with an attempt at rhubarb. It has some similar flavor aspects, but it is missing that sharp tangy tartness. And it has a very noticeable chemical off note. The fruits do blend and balance well without either overpowering the other. It's just a little closer to celery than rhubarb. Not getting crust at this point, and not sweet or sour enough. With the longer steep this has really blended well and matured into a great blend. The strawberry and rhubarb is balanced well, and has turned into a sweet and slightly tart pie filling. The strawberry has lost any artificial taint and is cooked and sweetened. The rhubarb left the celery behind and is a very authentic cooked rhubarb, but is missing that pronounced tartness. On the exhale I'm getting a light flour crust. It's very good, but not strong enough to balance the fruit."
    My experience with PUR is they are not strong so don't be afraid to mix higher %. I have PUR Boysenberry preserves and it really changes after a steep (better) so don't judge yours to hard until it has time to steep.

    I read the reviews I saw and all said to steep it. At first there are off flavors but was good with a steep. It sounds like it needs supporting flavors.

    Good morning! Today I clean house. I’m kind of tired of being the worker bee all.the.time. :eek: It’s getting to me. I need to get out in the world more but it’s hard when I’m the only adult keeping it all together and my chore list is longer than I am tall. Other than that, I’m making a list of flavors to buy from the latest discussions. So far I have holy holy vanilla, condensed milk, raspberry, lemon, lemon Sicily, chocolate chunks, and caramel butter. I attempted my own version of the Mayan milk recipe from another thread and it was weak. I didn’t enjoy it. Probably should have used my huge bottle of cocoa that I haven’t touched. I wish I had more time to spend on mixing.

    Mayan Milk (basically chocolate milk)

    1% FA butterscotch
    0.75% HS chocolate cream
    1% FLV cream
    1.5% CAP double chocolate v2
    2% FA meringue
    0.75% CAP super sweet
    1% LB vanilla bean ice cream

    I’m not even sure what HS and LB is so I substituted. I substituted a lot of the flavors. My version was just weak. It’s operator error (me) as the original recipe sounds delish.
