    Noteworthy Flavor Abbreviation Update: Please note that The Flavor Apprentice has recently changed their abbreviations from TFA to Fa. Because companies do not allow for flavor returns, diligently check FA and Fa orders.

    HELP ME I'M OUT OF CONTROL! I'M MIXIN' AND A MATCHIN', PICKIN' AND A PATCHIN', TASTEIN' AND A TOSSIN'.

    CHANGIN' AND A BREAKIN'. IT'S BLASPHEMY I SAY!!!!!!!

    OK, DEEP BREath. Caps off. Deep breath. Phew. Wow. I must apologize for adulterating all your recipes so
    callously, but this past week my taste buds have fully returned after having been on vacation for 48
    years. I've been table to taste individual flavors and imagine what they would taste like if I did this
    or added that. A whole new world has opened up. Even flavors I detest are more detestable! It's
    wonderful!

    Anyway, May your Christmas be Merry and thank you so much for letting me play with your excellent recipes

    Fruits, nuts, and creams. It's all they ever bleat about. Master of Laketown. Apologies to J.R.R. Tolkien.

    Is this a test? FE stands for Flavors express, not Fruits express. What do I win? :D

    Oh geez. We have a problem. We're both right...Flavor Express and Fruit Express. You win a gigantic THANK YOU!!!

    Funny enough, I didn't change that part. It's been like that for months =)

    I've purchased a lot of Flavour Arts and Signature(TFA) from them, but have never tried their Flavor Express line. Any idea if they are any good?

    People really, really, really, need to stop recommending Loranns Flavorings in the DIY sections. These are oil based flavorings that are not water soluble and don't absorb in the lungs. This leads to lipid phenomena, a condition in which the lungs are starved of oxygen from an excess of oil building up in the lungs, guess what no cure either.

    Not true. Look on the labels (or the website) for items that are water soluble. These are generally regarded as safe for vaping.

    Not true. Many use triacetin base (not sure of spelling) which is vapeable, it can even appear like an oil in that it seperates and needs mixing. I'm not sure if some use actual oil or not, but the "oils" I've used aren't oil, they are triacetin instead. One On One uses triacetin like many manufacturers do. It's in a lot of the aromatic "oils". Citrus esp.

    Sorry for the late response. I'm not recommending LA; I'm just posting the abbreviations so those who aren't familiar with them know to what people are referring.

    I thought SC was super concentrate, a Chinese product I believe? Also, Lotus Flavors LF? Or is it just considered the same as medicine flower?

    Great job on this resource, btw, very useful, thanks.

    or it it Fla`vora?
