I thought it might be helpful for new folks to have a thread where they can get clarification on things they might have read, are wondering about, or simply may have misunderstood in the course of things.
Please share things you see on the forum that you think might be useful here, or ask any questions that you’re not sure about here!
I’ll kick it off with the following:
Continuing the discussion from Best Super concentrate brand:
The above quote is a perfect example of such a misunderstanding.
A “super concentrate” by pure definition means that the flavor is more concentrated (eg: use less) than the non-concentrated counterpart (if there is one). Think orange juice vs concentrated orange juice, which is usually frozen, and in a MUCH smaller container, but when water is added, makes the same amount (ie: 1 gallon) of what you would get if you bought a non-concentrated gallon of regular orange juice.
As opposed to a “One-shot” which is a marketing term created to establish the idea that the product labeled as such, is a complex “recipe in a bottle”, just add VG/PG/nic. (eg: Turkey dinner one shot. Which might be expected to include: Turkey, stuffing, gravy, green bean casserole, potatoes, bread rolls… Etc)
Simple flavour - i think single represented flavour (strawberry, raspberry, apple) [thanks @woftam]
Complex flavour - Multiple flavours added by the flavour company to try to recreate pies, fruit mix, etc can also be used as a one shot if you think nothing is lacking (apple pie, cherry chocolate, strawberry milk shake). [thanks @woftam]
