    Well.I do use a touch of coffee in a couple recipes. As long as I can't taste it I'm ok to use it as an accent.

    I can’t possibly read all these posts, but I do like to chime in occasionally with a recipe I make to let you all hear it, haha!

    I found one online, but I can’t remember where, I wrote it down a while ago, but made a few subs.

    2% FW yellow cake
    2% FA meringue
    1% TFA Toasted marshmallow
    1% FW hazelnut
    1% FA cream fresh
    1% TFA AP

    I couldn’t put my finger in it, but now I just remembered. This tastes EXACTLY like frosted Cheerios. I remember them slightly, but it is flooding back memories, and it’s quite good as a shake and vape.

    Sometimes I wonder why I mix so many stuffs. I'm just one person to vape it. I suppose it's the hobby aspect and the search for the elusive winner recipes.

    I have to admit that the testers I mixed have been helpful. I've found that TFA Green Tea is sweet which explains why I've had a problem with too sweet tea mixes. Further tea recipes will be mixed with 2% Black tea and 1% Green. Trying the testers can be tedious at times but so needed. Really need to try the rest I have.

    We can share my son in law. He’ll vape anything. I had a bunch set aside to pour out so I could wash the bottles, he took it all (and returned my empties). They weren’t bad, just not great. He’s like having a vaping billy goat... nothing goes to waste

    I have a couple recipes I used the fresh fig in and I'm sure those will have a big FAIL on them. My tester was super sweet.

    I think so. I thought it was the honeysuckle in a fig/ hibiscus/cucumber/honeysuckle recipe. Removed the honeysuckle in a remix, still syrupy. I added a small % of fig without it turning toooo sweet, but kept some of the depth of the fig. But, I think I can tolerate a little more sweet than you.

    I think first order of business tomorrow will be a re mix of my Bourbon Ry3. I got a bit heavy handed with the ABC and the mix is a little over flavored for me.

    Did? More like "still doing.":shock:

    I'm back to page 314 as of now. But, I have to get back all the way to page 284.
    I just know there is going to be a recipe, or a flavor review, that I just have to have! :lol::lol::lol:
    Have you tried using it at a slightly lower percentage to what you use now? Sometimes, using a little less, can help to hide some of the more subtle (and if unwanted) secondary notes.

    What percentage do you currently use?

    As much as I dislike testers I'm going to try the last 4 today........I hope. In another couple days my first testers will be a month old and I have to do the last try on those. I guess I shouldn't complain,they've been very helpful.

    My RDA from ft will be here today.......for joy.

    My NR order still in never never land................

    Not yet. I am just headed off to bed, and when I get up, they will be just over the 72hr. mark. So, initial taste tests are on the agenda for then. I will share my impressions. :)

    Trying tester of Saskatoon Berries. Has kind of a mixed fruit taste to me. Not a bad taste. Doesn't appear to be real sweet....yet.
