Great info, thanks Darth & ringling. I had reservations about the Cotton Candy. The EM drawback makes sense.
I'm a little familiar with Caramel Candy. I have a few 'sweets' I occasionally add to some of my tobacco mixes, and that's one of them. I don't use much, just enough to give the mix a hint of caramel. If it's more forgiving for beginners, I'll swap the Caramel Candy for the Caramel original.
I'm doing some covert texting to my daughter, to get a better idea of some of the 'tastes' he likes.
She said nix to bananas, and a thumbs up to the cantelope..lol. She also said 'berries' get good reviews.
Whew..now I know why the fruit & dessert crowd have so many flavors in their arsenals!
