    This really is a great pink bubble gum! I like adding just a touch of FA strawberry. Thank you for sharing!

    I have tried every gum every company makes. Thought it must be something I was doing, couldn't get close. Now I'm ordering what you said. If it works, thanks in advance.

    It settles even more so after a day ... just did the usual mix it shake it ...let it sit in a hot water bath for a while then vape yesterday... today the wintergreen is less potent which helps bring the other flavours forward

    Edit: forgot to add made this with 75/25 VG/PG and 2%Nic (trying to wean myself of Nic at the mo)

    Got the flavour from vapable.com flavours arrived next day ordered them on 23rd December unbelievable!
    My Base liquids are from FA uk ...costs more but thier VG is sooo good
    My Nic is from somewhere else can't remember but it's not great so won't list them

    This really does taste like bubblegum although I may try using a little less cinnamon spice. I steeped for about two weeks now and I still think it's pretty strong. Not sure if it's the nic that I get though.

    I wonder if I'm doing math wrong? I almost always work in 30ml sizes; here's what I did and if I mistook the levels, please tell me what I should be doing instead:

    I used
    .6ml TFA Wintergreen
    .6ml TFA Vanillin
    .3ml TFA Cinnamon Spice
    .3ml FW Natural Orange (didn't have FA on hand)
    5ml PG
    Filled with VG to make the zero nic 30ml bottle.

    I tasted nothing; nothing at all. It was as though I had a tank of warm VG. I went back to the bottle and added each of the ingredients again, thereby doubling the amounts. The result is a vague, indefinable sweet, but nothing you can put a finger on and identify as anything. As someone else mentioned earlier in the thread, I'm used to much higher levels of flavoring. I keep my VG and PG heated, so everything I do is shake and vape, no steep required. Would really appreciate any help anyone can offer to me; I've wanted a real pink bubblegum flavor for a long time and as others have noted, none of the flavors presented as such by the big box juice companies taste anything like bubblegum. I will be elevated to the status of goddess by my customers if I can pull this off, lol!

    If you can't get this recipe to work out for you, maybe give LorAnn's Bubblegum flavoring a try. I've never tried it, but according to the reviews on Bull City and Ecigexpress, it's very good.

    Looks correct to me. Think old time bubble gum, not like Bubble Yum, or Bubbleicious. Don't know if that helps you.

    A few years back I won some free flavour samples.

    This was one of them and it's spot on...
    https://www.molinshop.com/american-bubble-gum-10ml.html

    (single flavour mix at 8.5%)

    Sorry...No Bazooka Joe comic included :)

    Another thing came to mind, @angiehere, how long since you stopped smoking? That can play with taste, especially in low flavoring mixes. If you're more a vet in vaping, my apologies.

    Welcome to VU, too :wave:

    Thanks for all the notes; I appreciate it! I've been vaping for three years and change, plus have been running my vape shop for a bit over two years.
    I've run into this sort of thing from time to time and find it so frustrating. Starting to think it is just me and that's entirely possible. As an example, in my worry over the new regs possibly making it a no-go to continue doing custom liquids for my customers, I've been reviewing some of the "big name" liquids out there.
    Started with Pinup; their stuff is awesome. It's all pretty much bright and shiny fruity stuff with one butterscotch/caramel thing and one banana/graham cracker thing; all very nice stuff.
    Then I requested samples from Beard, which is part of the LFNT group. Got the Beard samples along with Pour House, Super Strudel, Vapor Maid, Kick, Punch, Essentials.
    Couldn't taste any of the Pour House stuff.
    Barely taste any of the three Essentials.
    Super Strudels all taste the same.
    Kick & Punch have little taste but taste the same for all that.
    Vapor Maid I will be ordering; I can taste all of theirs and sorry there's only three of them.
    As for Beard, which is the one I wanted primarily because I like the logo, lol, they have one with hibiscus that is really nice. They have a cinnamon funnel cake that is good, but I was able to duplicate it on the second try within 20 minutes and then make it a bit stronger so it's not quite so subtle.
    Four of theirs taste nearly identical to me and are quite vague. I called my son at his work and asked his opinion of Beard since he's in Dallas and probably had more exposure to it than anyone else I could think to call. His exact words were "Beard sucks hobo d***" and while I might not have described it so, I am tired of being constantly disappointed by big deal liquids that are not nearly as good as the ones I make.

    So on the bubblegum, (it was Bazooka for me as a kid) I'm going to let it steep a while; something I've not had to do in almost two years. I can smell it in the bottle; it smells wonderful at the doubled level, so not sure why I can't taste it. I put it in a Kanger TopTank Mini; I'll give it a few days then try it in one of my Tobeco Super Tank 25mms and see if there is joy to be had. I just feel a little singled out because everyone else has said how wonderful and in some cases how strong this liquid is and here I am, unable to taste anything! Maybe feeling a little bit sorry for myself, lol!

    Just now went to the website from the link above and since my obsessive nature would not allow me to buy one thing, I went to the 100ml sizes and bought the bubblegum and either three or four others; I liked that I could use PayPal to pay for them, too. Haven't checked the exchange rate for Euros, so not sure what I paid for the four bottles (or maybe it was five...) I really appreciate the link and information; once I get locked into wanting to do something, I get a little bit of tunnel vision and can't think about anything else until I conquer whatever obstacle is directly in front of me. So bubblegum is the current task until I figure out how to complete it to my satisfaction.

    Does anyone have suggestions for really top notch premium liquids? Just to clarify what I already don't care for, I'm not a fan of Suicide Bunny or Five Pawns and it looks like I'm not too thrilled with Beard and friends now either. Should I post this in another area of the forum? I don't want to be a problem.

    Hi there, is the vanillin a 10% mixture in pg? Or more? It`s important to know because i can only buy a 20% mixture here in the Netherlands.

    Thanks

    I used TFA's, which is 10% vanillin in PG...so you'd want to use half-as-much, since yours is twice-as-strong.

    Hi, what is the steep time of this recipe? Or is it shake and vape certified. Haha

    You sure you're using TFA Cinnamon Spice, not TFA Cinnamon or TFA Cinnamon Red Hot? They're 3 really different flavorings.

    :) I usually bump HIC's flavor percentages up a bit for me, and I made this with 3% TFA Wintergreen, 3% TFA Vanillin, 1.5% TFA Cinnamon Spice, 1.5% TFA Orange Mandarin & 1.5% TFA Sweetener. It is an absolute dead ringer to Fleer Dubble Bubble IMO! Such an amazing flavor trick as it's difficult to taste any of the components. It's magic, I tell ya! Thanks X1000 for posting this, HIC. :D

    This still rates as my favorite vape recipe project for that reason. Knowing the flavors involved can ruin it for some people, as you can see reading through this thread; if that happens, try chewing a chunk of bubble gum as you vape it. Either the vape will now taste like the gum or you'll suddenly taste the component flavors in the real gum from then on.

    Another classic gum flavor, but with a super-simple recipe: http://vapingunderground.com/threads/hics-dentyne-gum-can-be-made-0-pg.18072/.

    Amazing! Didn't think it would turn out, but I ordered the ingredients and made it regardless! I did tweak the recipe to my liking because it seemed strong on the wintergreen and cinnamon, but kept it relatively similar to the original 2:1 proportions.

    Mixture turned a cloudy translucent color upon mixing. Mixture in drops because all the containers were the same so it worked out for me.

    24 drops TFA Wintergreen
    30 drops Vanillin
    8 TFA Cinnamon Spice
    12 FlavourArt Orange

    Thank you so much for posting this!
    I'll probably try adding a little bit of banana and see how this works out!

    P.S. I made an account exclusively to post a thank you for the recipe!

    Found a recipe on ELR that is suspiciously like this, so I imagine it's an offshoot of yours @HeadInClouds . Mixed it earlier today, and it's amazing. As others have said, it boggles the mind...BOGGLES, I tell you...how these flavors combine so that it's damn near impossible to pick them out individually.

    It's exactly what I hoped it would be. Dubble Bubble gum. :hearts:

    The mix I made is:

    Cinnamon Red Hot (TFA) 1.5%
    Ethyl Vanillin 10% (TFA) 4.5%
    Mandarin Orange (TFA) 4%
    Marshmallow (DIY) 2%
    Wintergreen (TFA) 4.5%

    Total flavors 16.5%

    Recipe I found called for TFA Cinnamon Spice, but I love the candied flavor of CRH, so I used it instead. Also called for a generic sweetener, and I'm to the point that I use marshmallow in place of other sweeteners about 90% of the time.

    Hi HIC, this recipe is my favorite recipe of all time. I mix the stuff by 500ml batches. That's all I vape in my RDAs.

    Did a small batch a week ago and I used tfa cinnamon instead of tfa cinnamon spice because I'm out of stock of cinnamon spice.

    TfA cinnamon at 1% is way too overpowering. The juice tastes like cinnamon is the main profile it's so overpowering. Should I lower tfa cinnamon to something like 0.5% ?

    Thanks a lot
