    Me to. Maybe its just one of the molecules that they had to go elsewhere. Theres a lot of different things in any flavoring

    It's my understanding that the new manufacturer has successfully matched the flavor according to the TFA tasters. They compared the old & new in blind tastings and discerned no difference .

    The second half of this TFA article gives a bit of an overview, of how, when, and why, TFA partners with outside laboratories.

    I bet that someone who uses it in a recipe as a ADV, would be a better judge of that. I have the original in a small bottle, been a long time that I used it, so that would not be me. :|

    Perhaps if the person has no preconceived notion and it's a blind test. I would personally only trust a blind test for something like this. SB Ripe is very popular for TFA and doubt they would settle for anything less than a match.

    I’ve been vaping strawberry ripe in my adv recipe for about two years straight. I have a ton but am curious to try the new version.

    I don’t vape strawberry often but use the ripe and shisha a lot for my cousin. Won't need any for awhile but doubt that she'd notice since I use 3 strawberries for her mixes.

    I usually do this as well, and find they're usually in the 5-7% range total. Except with Flavorah's Alpine Strawberry

    Meg hasn't been off cigs long and for her strawberries the mix usually lands around 8-10% just for them. For myself closer to 2-4%.

    I saw Wayne's video on this a couple of nights ago. He said there were minor complaints regarding the harshness of SR, which I get. So, TFA is going to work it around. Should be interesting.

    Would have preferred a blind test. At least his perceptions were positive.
