Custard

Custard, I swear Flavorah must have gotten this recipe straight from my mother, who got it from her great grandmother. Tastes just exactly how a good custard should be. Thick, but thin, rich decadent and omg so delish in anything I toss it at. This is what I would call the stove top method to creating a good custard.

How I tested it: from 2 bottle drops .04 grams in a 10ml, up to 8 drops .16 grams in a 10ml. Verdict, can really taste it at 2 drops, 8 drops is too much; for a blended recipe, from 2 drops to 6 drops will be your average, with 4 drops .08 grams or .8% usage in a recipe. I see a lot of folks using this flavor way too high, and by doing that, you will be missing out on the brown sugar, the nutmeg, the lower and middle notes in a lot of Flavorahs flavors.. so please be kind to yourself and try small amounts. It won’t hurt much to lower and test. 🙂

Recipe time!

 

Strawberry Custard 30ml

12 drops .24 grams Vanilla Custard
9 drops .18 grams Custard
2  drops .04 grams Alpine Strawberry
3  drops .06 grams Butterscotch
1 drops .02 grams Cookie

The Vanilla Custard is the start here for lush creamy thick and rich vanilla egg custard. The plain custard provides the topping to the mix, and lends more credibility. Alpine Strawberry here give the best sweet ripe and omg delish strawberry ever. It’s my fav one to work with. The cookie give the entire mix some texture, and hints of chocolate. It just works out together.. 🙂 Let this sit for a few days and remember, don’t hold me responsible for empty bottles!

Cream

How do you like your Cream, hot or cold, light or heavy, shaken with froth, or just on ice? I have to admit, I am a cream addict, I love the dairy flavors Flavorah has, and they did a fantastic job of only serving the best creams to us. Thank you! Now which finger to use? haha! Thick rich cream, with lots of tricks to use it, is what I know. I like to play with them most all the time, but I can burn myself out. Hard to believe, but they are just that good!

When testing, I just jumped in on this flavor and went full out, from 2 drops .04 grams all the way up to 8 drops .16 grams in 10ml bottles, and of course, I snagged the biggest one first. Right off the bat, I knew I had a decent cream to work with, but.. I got the thick cream, with that buttery edge to it, and no lower notes. I knew I had it too high. If that is ever a possibility, but it is. At 2 drops .04 grams in 10mls I picked up a creamy milky light light taste, and it was good, just not enough. At 4 drops .08 grams I got a good rich cream, milky, and can see bits of coconut shavings, and fruits being dipped into it. At 6 drops .12 grams it was a bit much like the real deal, almost with buttery notes, and the start of what I recognize now as the chemical notes on the back starting to appear; I didn’t get that at the 8 drops.. but it was there for me at 6 drops.. go figure. 🙂

Peaches and Cream! 30ml

9 drops .18 grams Peach
6 drops .12 grams Peach Gummy
6 drops .12 grams Mango
9 drops .18 grams Cream
6 drops .12 grams Custard

A simple peaches and cream, just like here, down south in the summer! It’s just a good way to ease a craving for sweet peaches, and rich cream! You could add in some cinnamon, caramel, and cool menthol.. and if I were you, i’d make this in a 4oz size!
Enjoy!

Brie Cheese

Should I be scared of this flavor, brie cheese? From Flavorah! They say: “Soft creamy spreadable brie cheese with low mold. Surprising flavor profile is very vapable, and quite compelling for people who need something new that is not another custard-yogurt-berry parfait.  However, you will have trouble with this flavor if you vape it stand-alone.  It is an excellent base pairing with cream, milk, and or greek yogurt.  Fruits like rhubarb, coconut, and nuts like pralines or a FLV cheesecake if you want to add a crust.”

Naw.. I am not scared, I did a few samples, just to judge how this flavor will work, and I can say.. please, test out your flavors solo, even with a description like this, you need to know how a flavor will lay, or work with others, on your own. Without doing this, how will you know if your flavors go “south” or might cause issues, etc.. ? I started at 3 drops .06 grams for a 10ml and 6 drops .12 grams 10ml.. at 3 drops, I pick up a creamy twangy milky bit.. and at 6 drops I start to pick up a cheese. I had to let this sit for a couple days until I was comfortable with the idea of vaping this, but for giggles the last one was 9 drops .18grams and oh wow!! funky sour cheese bits with a twangy milky?? cotton and coil change out, for sure!! So with this now.. I made a few recipes, one I can share!

Fan Girl Dream Steam

6 drops .12 grams Brie Cheese
6 drops .12 grams Cheesecake
6 drops .12 grams Coconut
6 drops .12 grams Macaroon
3 drops .06 grams Sweetness
3 drops .06 grams Basil
2 drops .03 grams Praline
3 drops .06 grams Yogurt
1 drops .02 grams Alpine Strawberry

Dream Steam has sat around for about a week, but I see this bottle going down real fast and will be putting it on for remix. It’s fantastic going with my coffee, the strawberry is more like a strawberry sugary effect, the milky cheese part, isn’t too strong, it’s had a chance to lay back, along with the nuts and cheesecake just make this fantastic and the basil is here as a spiced cool touch.. I am really enjoying the taste.. Top shelf here! <3 ha! So, if you mix this and enjoy it.. let me know your thoughts!
