Flavor Pairing

That would be nice to find all this info in one place but as one of the contributors of this thread I can tell you I have used google a whole lot to find pairings with many of the flavors we use. To my knowledge there is not one place to find it all.

Keep in mind your browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Ect) has a page search you can use. You can search all occurances of say cherry, or bourbon, ect in this thread. It’s quite easy to use. Take care…

I have paired butterscotch with Baked Cinnamon Roll, Toasted Marshmallow, and Caramel. I am not very adventurous, as I hate liquid that tastes bad. I hate waste. When I mix my Cinnamon Roll, I add a small amount of butterscotch, among other flavors.

The source of my material is the folks here…in this thread. I said a few posts ago that I simply collected and alphabetized what was posted.

Uncle Joe, some of the flavor pairings I posted were info from as many as a dozen pages googled with numerous cooks, mixologists, ect. I’m sorry that their names were not mentioned but I find that it is not feasible for one line of text. Jojo is only organizing the info that everyone has found and doing a great job doing it. I would more understand your feelings if this was someone’s poem, story, recipe, artwork, ect. This is nothing more than common, and necessary info taught to any student in the cooking industry, or drink mixing industry. This is knowledge that we in the ejuice industry must also deem essential to learn, and pass on to the next guy…

Actually, it’s not completely word for word but yes I see some lines that are. However, I don’t see butterscotch, cigarette, cigar, pipe, whiskey, bourbon, and many others. Number of lines are expanded. The list is probably all over the internet now. Did you read below this list, and I quote…

“Resources are a mixed combination from: Askabout.com, and my own dabbling”

It’s not their work anymore than it’s Jojo work. Jojo is making no claims that this is her work other than the physical entering of the data we are finding about food pairing into a database. I’ll say this, I’m not gonna give credit to google…

Man, I wish I would have known that was out there…it would have saved me some work. Say what you will, I copied and pasted into Word what was here and used Word’s alphabetize to put them in order. I added some stuff of my own, but other than that it is what it is. Welcome to the internet.

Hi Jojo;

Just a thought. You should probably add Menthol to almost every base fruit flavor and remove anything that is only pertaining to food. For instance I doubt anyone will be vaping fish or fennel seeds. I for one thank you for the hard work you have done!!!

Thanks. :wink: Yeah, I started to remove all the non-vape flavors, but I thought you never know…they make kung pao chicken and bacon flavored e-liquid. But, I don’t know that they make flavorings for that kind of stuff. I’ll chop it up some and add menthol. Good suggestion.

Edit: Every fruit? Even banana? I can’t imagine a banana menthol flavor, but I guess to each his own.

First 2 posts on the forum are bashing someone for posting about flavour pairings.

Welcome to ELR been on REDDIT much?

Sounds like you’d fit right in over there.

Updated the list here and the downloadable .docx file to remove irrelevant, (generally) unavailable, and obscure flavors and added menthol to all the fruits per @ringling’s suggestion. I left in many of the spices, as I know several people make their own extracts from spices and I’m one of those weird people that would totally vape a rosemary and thyme liquid (cue Simon and Garfunkel…) Cheers!
