Caramel

Sticky, sweet and oh my gosh so good, caramel! I know this flavor and what all it can do, by experience. I see it being overused and abused, but I won’t go there, as it does depend on the recipe and who is mixing it at what level of mix experience they have. For me, it’s a smooth caramel, delicious in most things I add it to, either as a supporting flavor or a main, this flavor is fantastic!

How I found my spots, is the same as all the rest. I grabbed up about (5) 10ml bottles and went thru my drops, 2 drops .02 grams, 4 drops .08 grams, 6 drops .12 grams and 8 drops .16 grams. I let these sit for about 3 days, shaking them every few hours; no other steeping tricks. The 2 drops was a very light caramel, and can see that being used as a sweetener at that level. Going to 4 drops, I got a good caramel type, not quiet as a solo, but then I rarely see caramel used as an only flavor, but it is possible it has been. at 6 drops, it starts to get really thick, way too much in my face type, with a taste on it that reminds me of burnt bits, def overdoing it there at 6 drops! So then I went 8 drops, and I just knew i’d be in trouble, but no I was not, not as bad as I thought, and it brings me again, back to my article flavor pushing zombies.

So this brings up, less is more than you really think, especially using it at more than needed. If you ever noticed, those full in your face flavor type juices going bad faster, if you keep a light to moderate hand making juice, it will last longer, and you will enjoy it better. You can retrain your tastebuds. YES! If you do a slow step down, like you would do with your nicotine intake. It is possible, and please do not give up, just practice more! Now how about a good recipe?

Caramel Coffee Brulee 30ml

12 drops .24 grams Caramel
9 drops .18 grams Vanilla Custard
3 drops .06 grams Vanilla Pudding
3 drops .06 grams Cinnamon Crunch
1 drops .02 grams Coffee

Creamy, rich, smooth and oh so good! You might want to let this sit around for a few days to mingle and play. Go big so you won’t run out of this one too fast! 😛

Edit: if you want more cinnamon/pumpkin spice/ginger then increase the recipe to at least 60ml, if not 120ml. Use 1-2 drops per 60ml for pumpkin spice, 1-2 drops per 120ml for more cinnamon.. If you’d like, sub out either or the creams for some good Irish cream, or Cream de Menthe! 🙂

Butterscotch

Flavorah’s butterscotch is just as it sounds, all buttery with a background of thick rich and deep scotchy sweetness! This is def a “helper” flavor, as no matter what amount you use this in, it will shine as well as assist other flavors!

If you take it from my range, 2 drops .04 grams in 10mls, you will get a spun sugary, buttery taste. Raise it up a bit, at 4 drops .08 grams, the buttery comes out to play well, and at 6 drops .12 grams, this flavor just shines. Raise it up again to 8 drops .16 grams and it only gets thicker, with mouthfeel as well as with sweetness. I have noticed, there are spots in using this flavor that will cause different effects, like muting out, or mutations after a long sit time of 3-4 weeks. If you are noticing anything like this, back down on your amounts, and the flavor will last a longer period of time.

Butterscotch Pudding 30ml

9 drops .18 grams Butterscotch
6 drops .12 grams Marshmallow
6 drops .12 grams Vanilla Pudding
3 drops .06 grams White Chocolate

Will keep my pudding recipe simple here, but it is easy to get carried away with the flavors! You should let this sit for at least a few days, to let the flavors mingle and party. It is a thick rich butterscotch pudding with hints of white chocolate running around and teasing your tongue! If this is too light for you, increase by 1 extra drop per flavor, do not exceed more than 3 extra drops per flavor, as your wait time will increase, as well as the risk of muting out later. Enjoy! 🙂
