    So, there's a Best of Flavors thread, but I think it's equally important to know which flavors I need to pass up completely :eek: Like TFA Caramel Cappuccino, for example.

    My votes are:

    Inawera Sparkling Wine - Tastes like a sanitized public bathroom smells
    TFA Boysenberry - Could NOT get it taste like fruit, always tasted very chemical
    TFA Raisin - This is not a bad flavor, but it tastes nothing like a raisin - it tastes like a mild licorice
    FA White Grape - Very faint fruit taste with strong chemical taste at all %'s tested (and I started at 1%)
    TFA Sweet Woodruff - Pure perfume with a very subtle earthy herb quality
    LAN Guava - Chemical taste
    TFA Caramel Cappuccino - Way too strong, even at <1%

    LOL - yep, this thread will entertain.

    flowerpots, that TFA Caramel Cappuccino is definitely strong, but it's so useful. It's the coffee flavor in Halo juices (way over 1%, but mixed with other flavors), so at least the Haloids will disagree with you there. Standalone, many like one drop in 10ml; I like one in 5ml. Use it over 5% and it's exactly the flavor of the 'caramel' in Cracker Jacks. It has 'custard note' ingredients, though.

    I nominate the single worst flavor I've ever encountered:
    FA Bread Crust - Some things, you can never 'un-smell'. Some smells can't be described. This combines both. What a fright. AFAIK there is only one successful recipe with it - wllmc's Jam Sammichez, which uses 0.0025%. It makes TFA Caramel Cappuccino seem weak, but unlike Caramel Cappuccino, I don't think anyone would ever vape this one standalone.

    HOLY SHIT is Bread Crust terrible. I legit almost puked...then I made my wife try it just for funzies.

    TFA Boysenberry is very good when mixed with other sweet fruit flavors, and White Grape is a good seller in our local shops. We sell it as a "wine" type flavor though. We also have a few who dare to vape the Caramel Cappucinno, which we call "Black

    Here's my nominees:

    TPA Mary Jane - who are they trying to fool? Worse yet, vendors that sell this...WHO ARE YOU TRYING TO FOOL???
    TPA Hibiscus - Smells AND TASTES like full strength cat urine.
    FA Dark Vapure - It's like a virginia tobacco with jalepeno in it. We use this to bomb each others attys at the shop...so bad

    I must be mixing wrong, then. Some of my flavors, I can't get past a chemical taste, even at low or very lower %'s. I'll keep working at it.

    By far, worst flavor EVER was ECX Flavors Express Black Walnut. I think all the ECX employees got pissed one day, did unspeakable things into a big bucket, concentrated it, and sent it out. Holy shitballs that stuff is FOUL. I could smell it in the mailbox and almost felt sorry for the mail lady having to have that in her truck. But she was a bitch so I didn't feel too bad.
    TFA Honey kind of reminded me of a car on fire on the New Jersey Turnpike through Elizabeth at rush hour. Eue de petrochemical refinery with hints of diesel fumes and burning rubber. Mmmmm.

    Just barely started with DIY but my vote is inawera Karmel. Holy crap, no matter what I did with this...stuff... ewww.
    I have never actually steeped 3 day worn sweat socks and gym used underwear, but I imagine the results would be similar.

    I've got this flavor, too. And I don't think it tastes good either. I keep trying to work with it in different mixes, hoping it transforms. No luck so far. I'm still on the search for a perfect caramel (true caramel, not candy-like)

    TFA Caramel (not original ) nasty! Tastes like dirty socks. FA caramel is great.
    And *ducks* Cap Vanilla Custard - tastes nothing like custard to me, with a very weird taste!
    Breadcrust....hmmm - I never vaped it without it being in the Jam Sammichez!

    TFA M-type. The most vile smell and taste I've ever come across. Makes the smell of burning electrical insulation seem good in comparison. Unfortunately, it's a big favorite with my nephew so I have to keep using it for his juice. How he can vape that without vomiting is a mystery to me.

    I got 2 flavors from a B&M store that sells DIY juice when 1st decided to try DIYing, they was TFA banana cream and TFA Caramel Cappuccino, omg that CC is damn awful shit, after 2 attempts with it, I gave up on it, is was that nasty it went in the trash, it crushed my caramel cappuccino dream.

    CC is pretty bad. Even at <1%. Try Inawera e-aromat cappuccino. It's the best one I've found so far.

    A flavor that I knew wouldn't be delicious but still had to try: TFA's dill pickle. I don't think I need to offer any explanation on why this didn't charm my palate.

    Got it on a lark. Smelled a little like anise liqueur. Tastes more like nyquil. You may have headinclouds but taste buds are in denial

    I'd vape Nyquil. You think I'm joking, but I'm not. Extra eucalyptus, please.

    Oh - I didn't mean I'd vape a bottle of actual Nyquil! Just a flavor like that. I'm not that adventurous, but I do like sinus-clearing, cough-drop type vapes.

    Every time I've tried it was painful, and I've never went above 2%.
    I don't like to waste so I add a ton of AP or Koolada e vape until the end.

    I've seen recipes calling for 10% o_O
    Somehow the mysteries of the Universe seem relatively much easier to decode than to explain how can someone vape it at 10%. :)

    I figured as much, but I couldn't help myself. I wonder if the medication would do its job quicker that way though. Jk. I'm sure it would be a coil junker.

    Agree in so many ways and in so many things, not just the m-type.

    10%!! I can't even imagine what that would be like. At 1% I had to use mouthwash to get rid of the taste, and even my nephew prefers no stronger than 3%.

    While not terrible, every flavor I have tried from Mountain Oak Vapor smelled like fresh cut flowers for weeks. The Honey Tobacco was the worst. Even after a month of steeping it still tasted like chewing on a rose petal.

    Another I just got is Jack & Coke from a local juice maker called Shore Vapors. In the store in an EVOD it tasted like Jack & Coke. In a dripper it tasted like Vicks Vapor Rub.

    It just goes to show you, we all have different tastes and preferences. That's what makes the world an interesting place.

    I still challenge anyone to find Musk Candy vapeable though :p

    It is a unique flavor, and very sweet, but with a sharp note. So, I can see how not everyone would like it. I've had the actual fruit, and like it as well. You likely aren't doing anything wrong...it's just not your forte.

    Just straight TFA Honey. Black Honey is actually Black Honey Tobacco, I think.
