    I was actually going to try some Flavorah until they jacked the price. Should have jumped on that a little sooner. ;)

    Same here. Would like to try some Flavorah, but not at the price they are asking.

    I'm kind of like Teresa (and many others here) with my nic use - I don't break my liters down into a bazillion bottles, but I do keep all but a couple weeks' supply in the freezer. About twice a month I'll thaw my liter bottle, top off the 250 amber glass bottle I keep in the back of my closet, and re-freeze the liter.

    I think I only paid about $6.50 for shipping on the dozen or so flavors and handful of syringes I bought - the gallon of VG must have cost twice that to ship alone!

    Yow! You ain't a-kiddin'! I checked only just today. I have a major case of sticker shock. How is is worth over $20 when the majority of FA & TFA flavorings less than a fiver? Is it that good?

    I was almost right. Shipping (FedEx Ground): $ 6.65. For what I ordered, I thought it fair. Two day delivery to Oregon seems to be de rigeur for NR.

    ETA - I checked back on my first order from them, just to check 'em out. Three 60ml FA flavorings cost the same as the above to ship; :eek:

    Highly concentrated, supposedly takes a fraction of even the FA we'd use. But the prices now are double what they were when first posted. Well, $10.40 became $20 and change. Close enough, too rich for my blood, even if it is 60ml.

    I'd have to try a 10 ml sample before I'd buy in that deep...

    Exactly, maybe even 5ml, but their original cost was $10.40 for 60ml. Even that was steep to me, but easy enough to pass on if I didn't care for it and still get my money back.

    Thanks for the link to NR, their prices seem to be pretty good! Got them bookmarked for an order later this week.

    You guys aren't kidding! $20 for 60 ml is kinda' steep! I'll stick with FA for now, my DIY skills are in the prenatal ( morula or blastula) stage now. I just read and follow more experienced people and the recipes they are kind enough to post. Besides, if they are that strong, I see where pre-dilutions would be required.

    Looking will not cost nearly as much as buying! After all, you can't buy just one.

    Hiya, fuzzy! You didn't mention what brand that hard candy is, but if you're just getting started, you might consider ordering the flavoring from a different vendor even though you'll pay a little extra in shipping. I like NR a lot, but if you order s flavor you don't like, you'll end up with 60 ml of a flavor you don't like. That's a lot.

    Check at Bull city Vapor or ecigExpress where you'll find smaller quantities of individual flavors.

    Oh, regarding you question about NR, nic and VG, they're great!

    Somehow I managed self-restraint and just ordered 150ml. Actually, it's not a mystery, I still remember the Joy debacle...:confused:

    Yeah, I tried to do everything imaginable with that one, I was just so insistent on making it work...but I've still got 25 ml out of my 30 ml tester left and gave up on it...for a while. In all reality I'm only in on Nonna for 60, I'll only go in bulk if I can find a way to kill this in 2 months or less...

    Nicotine River has Nonna's cake back in stock! I just received an e-mail from them, they're back logged so shipping is going to be on the slow side.

    My Monday night order shipped out late this morning, so not too bad.

    Personally I think it's all @HeadInClouds fault. ;)

    No shipping notice yet, and I had my order in within 20 minutes of the FA-back-in-stock email hitting my inbox...but I'll live for a couple more days if need be to get 150 ml bottles cheaper than 120 at my other favorite suppliers.

    I really like NR. Part of the order I just received was 250ml of nic. I don't know if they ran out of 250ml bottles or what, but instead I received 2 150ml bottles. Just goes to show that there's someone on the other end of your order who's thinking about the customer experience of shopping with them. It's always a nice surprise to get a little something extra when you receive vape mail! :)

    Receive that email from Nicotine River but WISH :cry: it was for everything. Didn't need TFA at the moment so pick up some FA that I need and used the coupon code: RECIPESHOTS for 10% on my order.

    It's experiences such as your's that make me hesitate in placing any order (from anybody) unless there is a "sale" event. :grumpy:
