This is an interesting flavor, mixed at 3%, no nic and steeped for 1 month. Tested in a single coil RDA in TC. Not intended to be a single flavor, as NR describes it is “Mainly used as a dessert base for cakes, pies, and more! This flavor adds “breadiness” to juices and exaggerates the crunchy aspect of a dessert! Like a churro, minus the cinnamon”
The aroma from the bottle smells like white sugar with light bakery notes. The vape is sort of similar, reminds me a little of the cake that is cooked a little more at the bottom of the baking pan that you scoop up and eat. Not as sweet as you might expect given that one of the descriptions of the smell was white sugar, does have a slight sweetness to it but not overbearing at all. When I was first vaping it I was struggling to find a way to describe it but when I went back and read NR’s description “Like a churro, minus the cinnamon” and OK, I can see that although I don’t think I have ever had a Churro without Cinnamon, that is just crazy talk…haha.
This might be a good alternative for those who cannot stand AP, not as effective but can add that note in a different way and not as strong.
I thought 3 stars was too low but 4 stars a little high as it is just an additive. I do see trying to use it in future recipes, great might be strong but it is definitely good, time will tell how much it gets used though. For something that is meant to be an additive, I wound up vaping about 8ml of my 15ml sample bottle just trying to figure out how to describe it. I actually didn’t mind vaping it but wouldn’t be a single flavor anytime soon, definitely a flavor that intrigues me though. I am going to try a simple cake, 1 with sugar crunch in it at maybe 1.5% and the other without to see what it adds to the mix.
Well luckily I like Caramel Popcorn so much as I might have gotten a second bottle of that marked Salted Caramel. When I first dripped it I thought damn, gonna have to rewick as I accidently dripped caramel popcorn but nope, I got the right bottle. Then I smelled each of the flavor bottle separately and so close, not till I tasted a drop of each from sample bottles off my knuckle was I able to detect a difference but it was close. The Caramel Popcorn does have a more significant popcorn taste to it but I think it is the salt in there that makes them vape so similar.
I thought about informing NR about this but what the heck, it was about $1 anyway with the sale and it is hard for me to believe anyone can beat VTA Salted Caramel anyway so why bother.
Not gonna rate it as there must have been a mistake or cross contamination. If anyone else gets both I would love to hear your thoughts.
