Flavorah must-haves

#1

BCF is having a 20% off Flavorah sale this weekend

Thought it would be good to start a thread on what flavors from Flavorah are must-haves from them.

I am still a newbie to Flavorah but from what I have tried so far Milk & Honey, Sweet Coconut, Nectarine and Rich Cinnamon are ones I love. Vanilla Pudding and Vanilla Custard both seem to have a lot of potential but I have not gotten into using them much yet. Popcorn is one of the better popcorn flavors I have tried. I am about to give up on Marshmallow Treat and Toffee, the toffee has little to no resemblence to toffee for me and Marshmallow Treat just tastes like marshmallow on steroids but might find a use for it in the future.

I know @Sprkslfly has mentioned Pound Cake as a must have, going on my list. I wanted to try out there new Marshallow Vanillla but it is already sold out and besides, it was just under $10 so wasn’t gonna buy it anyway.

Here is my potential shopping list in the cart at BCF, any I should add or dump from the list?

Pound Cake-FLV

Frosting-FLV

Sweetness-FLV

Peanut Butter-FLV

Whipped Cream-FLV

Marshmallow-FLV

Cinnamon Crunch- FLV

Peach Gummy -FLV

Tropical Punch-FLV

Butterscotch-FLV

Cupcake Batter-FLV

Wild Melon-FLV

Frosting is very good. I use it a lot so I can recommend it.

Peanut Butter is more peanut than PB. Its dry and strong but is good to boost other PB’s.

Whipped Cream is good but resembles marshmallow…a lot.

I really like and use Apple Filling a lot. Rich Cinnamon is clearly there so if you like that and like apple I can recommend it. It’s gone into every apple mix of mine for awhile now from a little to a lot.

I have heard a lot of good things about Frosting, might have to make that a bigger 30ml bottle instead of the 10ml testers I am buying.

Think I will drop peanut butter, doesn’t sound like something I will use often. Can you recommend a good peanut butter?

Whipped cream is gonna get dropped too, thanks for pointing out how much marshmallow it resembles.

Apple filling is going into the cart, that sounds good.

Thanks for the info my friend :+1:

I’m using TFA PB with 1% FLV. Its okay but I’m still searching for something better. I think flavor West PB is pretty good too . I love PB and just haven’t found one that suits me. Ironically TFA DX PB is I think better and creamier than the original, but I’m turned off by the DX line because of the Butyric Acid.

While it doesn’t suck… Just bear in mind that it’s not a pure butterscotch. It’s got fringe aspects to it that divert the main profile in a more than noticeable manner.

IF you like such things, I enjoy the following:
Apple filling (excellent)
Creme de Menthe (very good)
Milk chocolate (good for Hershey syrup type)
Pralines (very good)

Cocoa (Jungle Flavors) is very close to the FLV MC though, so if you already have it, you can skip the FLV. But, if for some reason it was close to what you want from a MC, but not quite there… Then I’d say it’s still worth giving FLV a shot.

The other three stand alone against anything comparable, and rise above other contenders IMO.

Solid info as always :+1:

Gonna skip the Butterscotch then, already have one I enjoy. I got JF Cocoa, good stuff and crazy potent but great info nonetheless.

I still have a stash of INW original Milk Chocolate so good there but will keep the FLV version in mind once I run out.

@mrpipes I read the DX Peanut butter does not contain BA, read it from ID10T on reddit, here is what he had to say:

TFA DX Peanut Butter is my favorite of all the peanut butters I’ve tried. Even after someone I trusted told me it was good, I checked the components list on TFA’s website before buying it. Sure enough, no butyric puke flavor in that one. It’s awesome of them to provide that components list, most transparency of any flavor company.

Your comment made me remember that so I searched it on reddit.

Have to second this one. This stuff is one of my staple mixes. You can take it to Andes Mint or Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookie real easy. I keep experimenting with adding chocolates, just a touch, and FLV Milk Chocolate may be the one. Its very strong and I think I am too heavy handed with it.

Thanks. In that case its the one I would recommend.

All of the ones I listed are…
Most are between 0.25ml and 0.5ml per 30ml in my experience. YMMV.

When I pushed MC to 0.66ml (in an all FLV mix) it was dominant. But, that’s a very limited and anecdotal observation. Still feeling my way around with it in mixing.

I’ve been tempted by Alpine Strawberry several times but never bought it. Anyone here use it?

Not yet. Been happy enough with Ina Shisha and FA.

The stranger thing is I haven’t seen anyone say anything about what makes it “something special” to warrant the extra outlay.

I’m with you on the Shisha and FA. However I tried Shisha and JF Sweet Strawberry and really like it. 2% INA to 1 % JF plus 2.5 % FR Ripe Banana and 2% WF Vanilla Cream Extra for Strawberry Banana mix. My wife loves this.

I hear it is more of a wild strawberry flavor so instant pass for me. I have tried some of there higher priced flavors like Coconut but Sweet Coconut which is in there normal price range is superior to my tastes.

Yeah i don’t like the price even on sale and I agree, the sweet coconut is really good and can be paired with others to get a a little different one. Seems a lot of these are either really good or just kind of odd. But we are all different. I checked my stash and have some I haven’t used much. I have Chocolate Deutsch and while its good, there is not much I know that can be done with it. Crazy strong.

I also have Cream and Cookies and to be honest I don’t taste much of anything with it. Supposed to be an Oreo Ice Cream and I’ve never been able to coax that out of it.

Just tried FLV Macaroon in a mix at only 0.50% and getting a cinnamon banknote. Familiar with all the other flavors I used so it is definitely the Macroon that is adding that note. If the Macaroon settles down with a steep it might be a good mix but as of now it is masking all the other flavors.

The Wild Melon I can personally vouch for, one of the very few fruits that I can bear.
My nephew’s favourite juice is with Creme the Menthe but I’m not a mint person so I have to take his word for it.
I thought their Mocha was pretty good too and I ordered some more Milk and Honey a while back.
Alisa has a simple recipe of Milk and Honey and Mocha, very tasty combo. 3% Milk and Honey and 1.5% Mocha :+1:
I can of course go on a rant about the excellent tobacco flavours they produce but I don’t think many people care :open_mouth: :zipper_mouth_face: :sweat_smile:

I don’t vape tobacco vapes often but do from time to time in a tobacco custard or RY4. Which FLV tobacco is the must-have?

IMO, I will leave out the H because I’m not, it is definitely the Red Burley.
It’s the best Burley you can buy, it’s a nice, dark pipe tobacco :ok_hand:

For me it’s the lime and rich cinnamon

Got a bunch more but these two are a must
