    You know how some health-food stores have bins of bulk granola in all different flavors? I'm sure I'm not the only one who fills a bag with a scoop of this, a scoop of that... Right?

    3% TFA Peanut Butter (you can use their DX version if you avoid diketones)
    3% TFA Banana Nut Bread
    2% FA Breakfast Cereal
    2% FA Banana
    2% FA Juicy Strawberry - remember to shake it before you use it

    Definitely more total flavoring than I usually use, but a couple of these are very mild flavors, so it's not overwhelming at all. Try a little batch first, then increase/decrease (and add/omit) flavorings to suit yourself on the next round. As-is, it's like 2 scoops of strawberry-banana granola, 1 of peanut butter granola, and a sprinkle of the old-fashioned brown-sugar-cinnamon-nut kind.

    I prefer this with regular TFA Peanut Butter, which contains diktones. It makes for a smoother vape than DX, but either one will taste fine. FA Juicy Strawberry is both a flavor and a sweetener here. Banana Nut Bread and Breakfast Cereal taste great together and the combo adds toasty bakery notes to the other flavors.

    Different wattage & hardware will emphasize different flavors, and it'll change a little as it ages, so shake-and-vape, and have fun with it.

    I'm really liking this combo of flavors. Right off the shake i get the granola taste with strawberry and banana. Then some hints of peanut butter with nice toasted grain notes. This one will be fun to play with and I can see dried apple, cranberry, apricot among others for some different types of granola. Thanks for the recipe HIC'S

    This mix keeps getting better by the day. Its a nice change up from the custard and creams. Looks like I'm going to need more peanut butter so i can whip up another batch as I'm ripping through this one.

    Finally got around to trying it after around four or five days in the shoebox. I don't really like peanut butter vapes, but this one I'm glad is an exception. Right off the bat I'm getting a tasty peanut butter and banana on the inhale, not much in the other flavors. Though on the exhale I get this like granola bar taste(not that surprising given the name and shit) this is where the strawberry really takes off, blending so nicely with the banana from earlier. On second puff it is just damn near perfect taste to me. Gonna have to mix up a lot more soon, already went through 3mls :) I think this has a place in the daily lineup. Thanks HIC, another great recipe.

    Side note, glad to have another use for the juicy strawberry, need more soon this 10ml won't last much longer :D

    I did a pretty detailed comparison of Capella Cereal 27 to FA Breakfast Cereal (and to Flavorah Wheat) that might help you decide. It's in my vendor thread, here: http://vapingunderground.com/threads/hics-mixes-diy-recipes-store.54921/page-69#post-1930941.

    I mixed this up last weekend and I'm just not getting it..... may have to up the % or let it age more for me. Vapes good flavor is just lacking for me.

    Edit: I did get the FA cereal also.

    Hi Carmmond the OP says try a little batch first, then increase/decrease (and add/omit) flavorings to suit yourself on the next round. Taste as we all know is subjective so maybe you can have some fun with the increase/decrease (and add/omit) flavorings. I may try a batch with a couple scoops of peanut butter with a little FA cinnamon Ceylon. Have some fun with it or just may not be your thing. Happy Vaping Holidays !!!

    Right.... just posting my thoughts on the original formula maybe getting advise from others that have tried it and what they did to work around it..... or thoughts from HIC himself. I in no way was saying the recipe was bad in any way I like it, it just did not stand out. In my mind I'm going to increase % up some if some steep don't work but with a lot of HIC's mixes a two or three week steep does it. Just posting how it worked out for me, more opinions is good feedback to our group and the person inventing the flavor not a rip.
    I have let Hic know what I think of his mixes in the past and I hope he likes the feed back..... off the box:)
