Wonder Flavors General Discussion


#55

Interesting. I never got that… I did get stale beer though! :laughing:
Memphis is far worse about that IMO. And worse still, what they consider BBQ isn’t IMHO. chuckles

Definitely some excellent food to be had in NOLA though!


#56

That sucks man, that’s the only reason I went lol


#57

Rolling through the first batch still…

Gushy Fruit Candy (SC) - Wife was surprisingly hooked on this one when she tried it yesterday. She said “It’s a great ‘generic’ candy”.

She is not the best at identifying and describing flavors, but she does know what she likes. I will try this one for myself soon. She says she wants a full ADV bottle soon, which tells me she thinks it is a winner. But she used all of the tester so I can’t try it myself yet. Generic Candy is far too vague; does anyone have experience with this one who may elaborate?


#58

I don’t know. Candy vapes aren’t my thing but they sure make a lot of them and I assume sales are good. I think my wife might like them so I’ll try this one too.


#59

I’d like to try it but we all know I don’t touch another person’s P.E.N.I.S., so I will wait until it gets mixed again.


#60

There’s a blast from the past! :laughing:

I should say, she seems to be doing well, and life seems have settled down. :smiley:


#61

Hey, where’d you go to school, Sparky? We’re close to the same age and both from Norco, who knows… maybe we know each other.


#62

Texas for the most part. :wink:


#63

Whew, thank goodness.

I mixed testers of several WF’s I just got. First impressions:

Fruit Salad- This is not a SC. MFG recommends 6 to 9%. Tested at 8%. Spot on canned fruit cocktail. Smells and tastes great. IMO a stand alone that needs nothing though in a mix could be interesting. I read reviews comparing this to gummy candy. I’ve never tasted gummy candy so I can’t say but wonder how this compares to @Phil_Fish "s Gushy Fruit Candy (SC) mix?

Flapper Pie- “A classic Canadian dessert. Flapper Pie is a creamy custard filling topped with meringue over a delectable graham crumb crust. Use this flavor on its own or to compliment ice cream, cake, pastry, or even fruit mixes!” Suggested Dilution Ratio: 1 - 4% - wonderflavours.com

First impression. Tested @4% . Sweet, creamy, light, non eggy custard with a meringue. I do not detect much if any graham or cinnamon. This is nice but not as potent as I would like. This might be better described as a light creme brulee. This one will be fun to pair with and is IMO very good- I just don’t know what to do with it. I have purchased WF graham crust but have not tested it yet. Adding that will be next.


#65

I also tested Milk Caramel Candy. I need to retest because what I got was not pleasant at all. Anyone?


#66

I have used at 1% in a mix (maybe 1.5 -2 % sf) it is not too bad didn’t quite fit where I did use it - light milk choc with a honey caramel type sauce. It kinda reminds me of

Which I imagine you don’t have in the US - hard for me to pin it down for you candy wise. Can’t vape it at high Wattage - it didn’t fair very well.


#67

Interesting. I do recognize Cadbury. This will sound odd coming from a ‘muricun’ where they put sugar in everything, but I don’t know what the majority of candies taste like. Diabetes. I can have a taste occasionally but just can’t/don’t do it. I even have to limit my intake of fruits.

I tried this at 3 % so I’ll dilute it and try at low heat. Thanks.


#68

We have Caramello by Cadbury!
It’s excellent!

They just don’t put koalas in it here… :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: lol


#69

Mmmmmmmm, Caramello…

A couple new notes…

Mixed Champagne Soda at 4% this time. It still has clear notes of red licorice, but the tart wine bitters are more pronounced. You may like it @mrpipes, but if you simply detest the red licorice, I’d pass. Definitely a different flavor at 4% but still licorishy.

Pretzel Dough (4%)… Well, this one is a little disappointing, although I assumed it would be. It has the feel of a pretzel bread, the sort you know if you have had a burger with a pretzel bun. The chewy bread part is there, but the deep goodness of the pretzel crust is lacking. It is OK but will never live as a standalone. Would bring a nice depth to a bakery note if you are looking for something unique. I would like to see how this fares with saline. Pretzels absolutely require salt.

Lemon Orange Rice Candy (4%). A little background on the profile… Long ago, one of the first juices I wanted to make was Fruity Pebbles. Not with milk, just the flavor of popping a few naked grains right out of the box. All the ones I have tried that said they were this, were not. Had a gross, off-putting lemon rindness to them. My wife liked them but I loathed them. Well, this profile is very similar to those. That same lemony rindness that is just too chemically to abide. Wife likes it, of course. But not a winner for me.

I have mixed a few other new ones but have yet to try them. More later…


#71

Mixed up Pumpkin Candy SC at 4.5% (took a risk and shot over the max recommended).

That odd, brown sugary Moon Sugar feel is much abated here. It is a lot sweeter now. I like it a lot better but I’m still struggling to get that candy corn vibe. A decent sugar candy profile but does not get to pumpkin mellowcreme as promised.


#72

Has anyone gotten these yet? Need to order from BCF soon and wondering if these are worth a try.


#73

I have them but have only tested the cream puff. Things have been crazy here with the weather and a long list of others including spoiling my homogenizer parts with my “new” chinesium lathe. :rage: Work an hour on the project and work a week fixing and waiting for parts. Its maddening sometimes… but shit happens. "Murphy’s law"and I know ol Murph pretty well.:grin:

I don’t think much of the cream puff but others may like it better than I do. It’s too light for my tastes but a real cream puff probably is too. I’d call it a slightly sweet cream with a light pastry back. I tested at 3% and will try 4 next or add a fruit. I can see it being pretty good that way but would say that it could be easily overpowered.

I’m dying to try the Cookie crust. Maybe mix it tonight.


#74

Is yours the SC variant?
