Hello all. I was very active on here a couple years ago and without going into details, I am back and in need of guidance.
I am looking to create an authentic Pina Colada. Not with any kind of alchohol taste but that true creamy coconut milk and pineapple flavor that you would get from something like a Palleta Fruit Bar.
Anyway, I dont know where to start with flavors. I have CAP Golden Pineapple and TFA Coconut Xtra. Neither seem to be close to what I want at any percentage. The coconut is actually pretty nasty at even 0.5%.
Has anyone here tasted what I am talking about? Does anyone have a recipe that they think is close?
Ok, right out of the gate, your assessment of the TPA CocoX is spot on. I can’t use it myself. TPA Coconut CANDY however, isn’t half bad. As a long time CAP Golden P user, I was shocked when doing some recent SFT’s on Vape Train Australia’s flavors, and their Sugarloaf Pineapple was mind blowingly good.
louisquared nice to see you again… I ciuld give you a couple newer flsves that are better than whatvwas around 2 years ago…
VTA Desicatted Coconut
WF coconut custard ( may be able to help with the creamy coconut aspect )
Molinberry Pineapple lassi …this is a Pineaplle Yoguet with a touch of Cooling
Sugar loaf VTA
MB funky pineaplle make a great pineapple
VSO coconut is a naturally extracted coconut I need to play with it more but seems promising
Just some thoughts.
I have never tried to make the Popsicle but love the shredded coconut and creaminess ( if im thinking of same thing )…So good o think the creaminess is going to be harder than getting an acceptable Pineapple / Coconut combo
Thanks for the suggestions. Yeah, that creamy coconut milk is definitely going to be difficult but I have some ideas for the creams. I just have not done a lot of coconut or pineapple and don’t want to blindly buy a bunch of different concentrates.
So I tried the Cocopilada and I don’t think it is going to be exactly what you want. It has that creamy, milky, sweet colada vibe you mention (sans alcohol), but it also has prominent coconut cookie notes.
I mixed it at 5% yesterday for my SFT and I actually really like it a lot! But for what you specifically mention, I think the cookie exhale is going to be a miss. Great flavor though, and a rare “works as a standalone” concentrate that I will have in the rotation going forward.
I’m interested to hear how that goes. It totally hits the sweet, creamy dessert bar at 5% but does have the cookie too. If the cookie goes away but the bright colada happiness remains, I’ll try it lower.
I have all but VTA Dessicated Coconut and VSO Coconut. Would be interested in your thoughts on those. I love me some coconut but am yet to get a really good one. I hear Delosi do a good one, but I can’t seem to get it anywhere in the UK. Also, do you happen to know if “Cocopilada” is the same as INW Pina colada? That’s all I can seem to find. Thanks.
