    I've been puffing on this Honduran Blackberry all morning. It's OK. Not bad but nothing special either. I suppose if one likes blackberry it would be a good one for them. I know this is going to sound odd, but it kinda tastes like bubblegum to me. Not especially an authentic blackberry flavor. But again, it's not bad. I used two blackberry flavors split evenly. Blackberry (CAP) and Blackberry (SC) for the record. I think I will mothball this project. While it's an OK flavor I'd rather spend my time testing other flavors that have more potential to being great flavors.

    I haven't done a Blackberry. I think I would use Fa and TFA but I really don't have the desire to mix a Honduran Blackberry. Maybe some other time.

    That's good news... I think the other person used a different brand.

    I better not tell you all the predicted temp for today here in CA... let's just say I've already had to water the lawn and will be doing fertilizer soon. This happens every Feb... people plant flowers then suddenly they wake up one day and the frost is back.
    When I lived up in the mountains (5000 ft) we got the heaviest snow of the season in March. California is very diverse (coast, valleys, mountains and desert)

    I tried those two blackberries together and didn't care for it. After several different two flavor mixes I figured out that it was the cap that I didn't like very much. I ended up with tfa, RF, and FLV boysenberry for now.

    I've been trying to choose "creamy" flavors... basically something lighter and not overwhelming like Custard (specifically Cap V1) Bavarian cream sounded good but wondering if it's really very different than Custard. So I thought Vienna cream is a lighter version of that (I had no idea it's more of a frosting) Then I considered Cheesecake because I love cream cheese. I ended up looking up actual recipes to make these (in real life) and realized cheesecake also has sour cream (not sure I like that) and the same for yogurt. I know it depends on the brand and specific flavor but I'm just more confused now. I did try a pre-made I liked Dinner Lady Rice pudding with jam... nice light creamy juice (and I added some DIY Boysenberry preserves) An finally, there are simple creams (and even marshmallow and meringue) I can't just order a bunch and try them all so any advice would really help. Thanks for putting up with the long post. Feel free to send me a PM too.

    White decks never made sense to me. They’re hot as Hades, and hard to get clean. The key to summer wear down here is any of the dry wick fishing clothes. That’s probably half my wardrobe lol. It’s opaque, but it lets all the air through. I prefer the pullover or quarter zips, Himself likes the button up with pockets. Shoot, with “good” jeans, they count as dress wear around here!

    Fresh Cream if you want something light and not overwhelming.

    I was going to say that one’s my favorite, but I use both regularly.

    I should have mentioned I'm going to mix those with fruits.
    Also, I'd like to thank @PJReid for the advice she already gave me in a PM.
    I'm going to order three... starting with Fresh cream (brand?) Which cheesecake is less sour (I already have Graham to add if needed) Maybe a good pudding?

    That's so true. When I'm fishing, I wear a very light fabric long sleeve shirt (white to reflect sunlight) We are lucky... very hot but low humidity.

    Have you considered maybe adding some yogurt to your cheesecake? I suspect it may allow for a smoother vape and maybe even allow fruits in that recipe to benefit fron an easier time of blending all the flavors together. Just a thought.

    The only Cheesecake that's sour/bitter is plain Cheesecake (Not NY and no graham)
