    Has anyone used FLV Brie Cheese? Wondering if a couple drops would be of use in a cheesecake mix?

    As shake & vape Andies Candies has potential. At least potential to use up the bottle of Creme de Menthe on something other than my nose during bad smelling dental work.

    Peppermint Patty was easy.
    If it wasn't for chocolate killing coils one of these could become a usual vape for me. One of these is a clear chocolate so that may not be a problem.

    Neither of these recipes is mine. I just came across them and saved them in Notes. I don't really like chocolate in my vape, but thought these might be useful at some point. Maybe these can give you some ideas.

    Peppermint Patty
    10% OSD chocolate mint
    2% Inawera chocolate (Has to be this one and no other)
    1% or less TFA peppermint (Strong, strong stuff)

    HIC's Heart of Andes recipe: smooth vanilla-mint, like the center of Andes' Mints candy
    2% FA Peppermint
    1% FA Vanilla Bourbon (Classic will work okay, but Vanilla Bourbon's better here)
    1% FA Vienna Cream
    1% FA Fresh Cream
    1% FA Marshmallow

    I bet this would be great if you add your favorite (dark) chocolate. HIC says that this makes a credible Creme de Menthe. I saved it so I would never have to buy Creme de Menthe again.

    That peppermint patty has me out, I'm limited to 10%. I really can't imagine 10% chocolate plus 2% Inawera. I've been starting with all my chocolates at 2%.
    Orange Tootsie ends up 5% between 2 chocolates.

    These were:
    Andies Candies
    Creme de Menthe (TFA) 4%
    Double Chocolate clear (TFA) 3%
    Peppermint (TFA) 1%
    Menthol (TFA) 1%
    Koolada (TFA) 1%
    The syringe I grabbed was old and I think peppermint got bumped an extra .5% and using a premixed chocolate taster had that high so I didn't have that at some odd percentage. I'll let it age but probably cut down the chocolate to 2% and the last 3 to 66%.

    Peppermint Patty
    Chocolate (FA) 3%
    Peppermint (TFA) 2%
    Menthol (TFA) 1%
    Koolada (TFA) 1%
    I don't imagine this will need any tweaking. Unless I want the Double Chocolate clear with this.

    I love mixing with chocolate sometimes but I don't actually want it to be an upfront taste.

    It seems like it would be weird as an up-front flavor in e-liquid to me. I'm experimenting with FW Dark Chocolate at 1% in the caramel nut tobacco recipe I'm trying. Seemed to work really well in the batch I heat steeped (until that batch got really peppery). Just gave everything a darker undertone. I'll do the 3-day taste test on the no-heat steeped batch today so we'll see how it's coming along.

    I think you're better off to give your tobaccos a long natural steep.

    It has come to my attention that I have a bottle of LB White Chocolate Peppermint sitting on my computer desk. It's been sitting there for 3-4 months now cause I'm afraid to mix it. Has anyone tried this?

    Perhaps. It was tasting REALLY good about 16 hours after the heat. But then I think degraded nicotine started to oxidize and that peppery taste started creeping in. I'm going to try again with less heat, but still I do have a batch that I'm steeping naturally, I want to get a good comparison. I'm sure the naturally steeped batch will be top-notch, but I hate waiting. Maybe when I get enough of a backstock that I always have good steeped juice on hand I won't mess with the heat as much.

    Seems like it took me a very long time to get to that point of not being in a hurry...LOL. You have a very good idea in letting one bottle steep naturally. I have so much mixed at this point it's no big problem letting the new stuff sit awhile.

    I've been trying to organize my flavors better so I don't spend so much time searching. This was my drawer divider.

    [​IMG]

    I couldn't fit anything in there and my flavors bottles spilled out to the kitchen counter,computer desk and another drawer.
    I bought 2 of these double sided cases

    [​IMG]

    The cases hold all my creams,liquors,vanilla,nuts and additives.

    Now I should be able to organize my drawer divider better.

    My cheesecake and Graham flavors fit very nicely in one drawer divider section. I have loosely put the fruits in 3 sections 2 by alphabet and one just for strawberry. I have a bunch of "bakery flavors and odd stuff". May put it all together. I can't see any good way. The flavors go from Brie cheese to pie crust and beyond.

    Great minds think alike!

    [​IMG]

    Between the 2, I can fit all but my larger bottles of flavorings. I got 2 colors so they would look different and help me find stuff. Fruit, tobacco, minty, and enhancers in the pink. Everything else in the white.

    I love these things!

    Why not just buy another container? Or, are the rest of the flavors in big bottles?

    I have room in my drawer divider for them now. Most are 10ml bottles.The flavors are in all different odd categories. I'll probably just put them all together for now.
