Baby Brands (lesser known flavors)

Yes i use a few German flavors

Quark joghurt : best out there IMO optimal usage range 4-5% 10/10

Vanilla pudding: 3-4% good very similiar to FLVs which is both cheaper and easier to obtain -replaced. 9/10

Rhubarb: strong, flavor is on point slightly tart, usage 5-6 drops per 30ml 9/10

Cookie: amazing biscuit cookie with no detectable AP notes. Tastes almost like a very sugary,flaky light crumbly pie crust. Usage 2-3% This flavor was unrivaled IMO for its versatility in use with bakery profiles. Good as an addition to pie crust, cheesecake crust, cookie profiles and yup 0.5% FA cookie bolsters and bends it nicely too… 10/10
Recently tried Jungle Flavors Biscuit which actually tastes similiar and am hoping will replace as German flavors are $$

Baked Apple: very strong. Cooked apple note with hint of raisin and cinnamon. Good for use in apple fritter recipes Usage 0.25% 7/10

Passion fruit : very very strong. Sharp high notes. Usage 0.08% - 0.17%(1-2 drops per 30ml) 7/10

Vanilla crescents: strong lovely vanilla with weaker faint bakery elements. I was Expecting a croissant/type pastry alas this one needs lots of support. 6/10

Licorice /lakritz very very strong. Nice true english black licorice candy notes. Usage 0.25% 8/10

Marshmallow : somewhat of fluffy butter cream marshmallow. Very good. Usage 2-4% 9/10

Strawberry: strong, dark ripe strawberry usage 0.25-0.5% 7/10

Cheesecake : slightly tart and creamy cheesecake with faint lemon note and hint of graham. Usage 0.25%-1.0% 7/10

400 plus flavors so not so small.
Got about 65 of them so far and they remain my primary supplier.
25% off direct with the code off our resource page. Started with them and I know some of the line fairly well now.
Local to me with very fast shipping and great service.


Use their Water Soluble Sour Cream with excellent results.

I’ll second that. I’ve been thoroughly impressed by some of the Purilum flavors.
A few that I will definitely be ordering again are:
-Cranberry orange ( bright tangy and tart cranberry sauce with orange notes)
-Strawberry marshmallow cereal ( think lucky charms cereal but with strawberry flavored crunchy marshmallows)
-Lemonade and strawberry lemonade ( these are just really nice smooth lemonades)
-Cookie (crispy crunchy homemade sugar cookie, works great for adding a crumbly layer to desserts)

I got this one (and three other samples) in my recent order from VapersTek. I tried searching on their site (using the search function) but had 0 results on 3 of the 4. Seems their site has some issues.

Anyways I’m guessing this is supposed to be a yogurt?

The other ones I got are:
KAKAO
Angry Alien (found this one)
Feiger Kaktus

The only Kaktus they had listed was Inawera. But each package is clearly labeled German Flavors.

Also, I need to email them about an issue I have with the Ina lime I received. Finger test (raw flavor) was super weak, and now that it’s been 5 days on a steep, both 2% and 3% tests seem extremely weak (which I’ve never had an Ina flavor need usage above 3%). Anyone had any experience with Ina lime to contribute? TIA.

I have a recipe with 2% inawera lime and it’s anything but weak. I’d say there’s most certainly an issue with your bottle.

Is it a “light and/or airy” flavor to you? Or potent say like their strawberry or Raspberry etc?

I mean, it’s somewhat there, but it’s so light by what I’ve come to expect, that I was wondering if it was just me… I was fully expecting to have to use this around 1% or less, but even at 3%, it seems like it would only be an accent. So I’m obviously inclined to agree with you.

The other thing I noticed, is that it had almost a watery aspect to the “raw finger test”. Whereas I normally get a definite alcohol aspect in my other Ina flavors (in varying degrees, but none like this).

Definitely not a light or airy flavor. Not at all. I just did a finger test…phew…just for you…WHEEEW… my whole mouth tastes like zest. :laughing:

Purilum gets another vote from me.

German flavors also gets a vote from me. The only ones I’ve tried from them was peach yogurt and regular yogurt and both were really good.

Bickford flavors not so good. I ordered a cinnamon butter and walnut. The walnut was such a dark color and tasted off that I didn’t even mix it because it kind of scared me. Both of those flavors ended up in the trash. Save your money when it comes to this company. You can Google search them and find some other reviews, most of which are not the best.

Wonder flavors tahitian vanilla and they’re strawberry was ok. You really have to mix them high. Id say 8-10% range. Very similar to TFA flavors. The chocolate chunks reminded me of tfa a lot. The butterscotch cream pie was pretty good. I guess it depends on the pg/vg ratio you enjoy most. If mixing higher percentages with less vg then these are for you.

I ordered a few flavors to try out from flavor pheonix over a week ago and they still have not shipped. I know they are not on your list but I do think they are sold on diy vapor supply.

I’m on my phone so hopefully I have this 2inch box wrote up correctly for you :slight_smile:

I’ve heard good things about wonder flavors, I think I have one of them, caramel butter, but haven’t tried it yet.

I’ve heard ooo is hit or miss. Creamy milky undertone seems popular.

Remember they have Rainforest too, which is Jungle Flavors, which has a couple of well used flavors like yellow cake.

I have INW Lime in my stash. I use it in the 0.5%-1.0% range. Should be quite bolsterous at these % lol I do always add other limes when building a lime recipe though ex lime tahiti, Lime NV ,key lime SC , Lime RF SC . i could run a quick SF test of the INW lime if you so desire @Sprkslfly could mix a 10ml in a flash to confirm…

No worries, and appreciate your input!! Your normal usage is enough to tell me (and confirm again) that there’s definitely an issue with my batch.

Penny is very helpful over at Vaperstek, she sorted things out the one time i had an issue and im sure she will make things right for you as well…

Very good to hear. This is my first dealings with them, and to have a “watered down” flavor (possibly just old stock… Possibly wasn’t shaken properly before dispensing… But when all the bottles have an expiration date of 9/2018 on them…) isn’t really inspiring confidence at this point. All of the others appear to be issue free so far though.

I’m thankful I was “excited enough” to do a raw finger test, as normally I just slap them on the shelf, and wait until I get to a particular category to test. (creams, vanillas, etc)

Dammit… Im certainly going to need to try that. :slight_smile:


It was awhile back but some of us did some testing on the original EuroFlavors line, not available in Europe :confused: I know you know this already @Pentine, i figured id mention it for others as they are rarely mentioned or used.

A few of them were pretty bad, nougat was one and Virgin Colada smelled like straight up acetone, i didnt even bother putting it in VG. I dont think i was much of a fan of Tiramisu, Wild Berry or Praline. Some of the coffee flavorings were pretty good

With that said they have some pretty damn good flavors too. Sadly my flavor notes on the recipe side are gone, i didnt realize removing the flavor from ones stash removed the notes but some of the flavorings that i enjoyed were:

Two Apples Plus - There is no apple or tobacco in this but it is a very nice anise/licorice.
Milk Chocolate
Chocolate
Pipe Tobacco
Tobacco Vanilla

I got 15 or so flavorings and while i liked some of the others it just wasnt enough to buy them again as the competition for those particular flavors is tough. Vanilla Custard was one, i vaped the entire sample bottle and it was pretty decent but so many better choices.

The Pipe Tobacco is one of my favorites and a simple single flavor mix is in my mothers ADV rotation. Two Apples Plus i vaped in single, never even bothered mixing it in a recipe, well a touch of custard, :wink:

Several other people found some they liked too and i see they have added quite a few new ones. I wanted to try more but of course there is always a new company to explore…

Hangsen seems to be picking up steam again, they have some excellent creams and im pretty sure that i ran across a hot dog flavor somewhere… And of course their tobaccos… Ive been slowly adding them back to my wishlist.

LMAO hot dog flavor. That is for our friend @Bob_Bitchen, I am very sure he will make use of that. I did recently get Hansen Watermelon, I know they are known for their creams and tobaccos, but I am on a watermelon hunt, so no stone left unturned.

I have used EuroFlavors, they were pretty good. I got a sampler pack and enjoyed probably 3 or 4 of the 10 I got. Their Sour Green Apple is very good. Blue Raspberry too, of course.

One on One Flavors is pretty good too. Of the 10 or so I got, about half were definitely order again’ flavors. Very pleasantly surprised with their Grape Happy Rancher, it is a very unique grape flavor. Sometimes I tire of grapes, but this one is different.

Purilum of course is good as well; I like their watermelon and have their buttercream steeping. Even the flavors I didn’t end up using/ liking too much were still very tasty; I just had a stronger concentrate that tasted close to the same (Sweet Strawberry PUR).

I have seen both positive and negative things about wonder flavors, so I am going to have to just give them a try.

Natures Flavors is not as good as I imagined, but there are a few that are definitely finding their way into my collection. Still trying to figure out what the deal is with their watermelon; super sweet, no rind, but doesn’t exactly taste like watermelon, very odd… Their Orange Cream is very good though, I can say that.

Yes i saw thay have a complete burger flavour as well @Bob_Bitchen

@Ken_O_Where I managed to get 4x 20ml Italian cream from the UK postage to au was only £5.20 and it was super cheap. I also got the 100ml holy vanilla from chefs (I added 10 fa flavours I cant get here in Au and the total cost was less that getting 60ml + shipping from diyfs)
