    TFA Raspberry (Sweet) 5%
    FA Coconut 5%
    FA Whipped Cream 1.5%
    FA Nonna Cake 1%
    INW Shisha Vanilla 1%

    For me, this is perfect first try. Made it about a month ago and cracked it open today, so not sure on steep time, but two weeks is probably enough.

    @NGAHaze, these are what I mentioned to you about coconut Twinkies, the name was lost deep inside of my brain that has filled with so much information over the years.:D

    I'm so excited to try vaping these:bliss:. I haven't liked Nonna fresh, so maybe it's just a long steeper. Even a week isn't long enough to steep for me.

    The Nonna Cake tastes more like a denser more... adult? cake. For a true Twinkie-like cake, you might want to go with a sweeter yellow cake flavoring instead. Of course, even the cake in Twinkies/Zingers is super sweet, so adding a little sweetener might be something to do if you're loooking for a more authentic Twinkie cake taste.

    I've been working on a almond joy recipe for like six months and thought Cap chocolate almond coconut would be the key. Turns out it just makes me hate life.

    Try INW Marzipan, FA Coconut, and TFA Double Chocolate Clear.

    I tried those but the texture is still off a little. Working with INW chocolate milk and Hangsen Chocolate Cream next so see if I can get the texture right.

    I actually like the TFA double clear mixed with TFA Bittersweet Chocolate Extra for a Hershey's/Nestle chocolate kind of taste. Usually at 2:1 or 3:1, but for a darker flavor 1:1 works well too.

    To me the INW marzipan would have too much cherry flavor to it, I'd stick with FA almond or marzipan. @PreparationHero , you might try FLV Sweet Coconut, Squonk mentioned it to be like a candy type coconut.

    It's on the coating. You poor boy, when is the last time you ate one?

    Glad you mentioned this tid bit. If I use Nonna I have found I don't like going over .5%. Honestly, I haven't found a good a sponge cake flavor, other than FW Yellow Cake.

    Preparation Hero, I think I recall HIC posting a mounds recipe, but I haven't tried it.

    Thinking about it, you might try a cupcake... maybe vanilla cupcake, but then I'd go down on the Shisha Vanilla a little probably.

    If it's because you don't like a lot of raspberry vapes, I'd still consider it giving it a try. The TFA Sweet is about as realistic as I've tried yet, without any of the tartness of a real raspberry. I don't like most raspberry vapes either. If not raspberry, my next choice would be strawberry over blueberry.

    You'll probably want to drop the percentage a little bit, maybe 2-3%. I can't stand strawberry, so I couldn't say for sure, but generally, INW is a bit stronger than TFA.

    Every pre-made strawberry juice I've had has been great but when I make it,it's all I can taste! Even if a few drops so it's becoming my least favorite. So I've ordered the raspberry to give it a shot but ill still start low.

    If you can do a little spicy, try my Dominostein recipe. It also uses this raspberry. It's a German holiday cookie layered with gingerbread, marzipan, and jam/jelly and covered in chocolate. Needs a good long steep to mellow the ginger, two weeks minimum.

    You're the devil suggesting new flavors when I just put in my last order for the year! haha I think though with all the new custard recipes I'm finding that I'll have to order more... I'm totally in love with the INW custard! But, I'll look for yours and drool until then! Unless you have it handy... finding things is a bit tricky here...

    Vaping this now on a 1 month steep.

    Good job. Was a little skeptical at first with the high % of FA's coconut, but it definitely helps hit that vaping an actual Zinger as i remember them experience (i went full health nut 10+ years ago and rarely eat that crap now ;)).

    Not really up my flavor profile ally as an every day thing, but it is a nice change of pace vape.
