I’m learning and ordered some aromas.
In many of my favorite sounding juices there goes “vanilla custard”.
But when I try a drop on the hand to taste (even in more complicated recipies) I taste an pretty bad something… I did test all ingredients and I think it is definialtly the vanilla custard that creates this taste.
In My vape it is not so bad as the drop on the hand, but still I get some kind of throat hit from something that should tast like vanilla pudding?
Did I get a bad batch, or is it a really “sharp” aroma when taste from the hand?
It is the first time I ordered this, so I can’t compare.
I’ve heard that some people get a sharp or peppery taste from tpa vanilla custard, the same as with their vanilla bean ice cream. Have you by chance tried tpa vbic (I ask because if you have and didn’t get the same taste then its probably something different )?
No I didn’t try vbic (actually I never heard from it).
I can’t say it is peppery, but it is really an overwelming sharp taste that happens after the nice sweet tastes…And it is so bad that I’m thinking of not using this anymore.
I am aware that vanilla tastes containe acetone (forget how to write it the correct way) wich is the “harsh” taste in for example apples, but what I taste is like TURBO version…
Ugh bummer. If it’s really bad you’re probably on the right track with not using it anymore. I don’t personally get any off flavor from it… which doesn’t mean much since everyone’s tastes are different. Sorry, not much help!
Indeed, TPA custard is known for the peppery taste and avoided by many because of it.
That being said, there are a lot of people who are not into custards because it doesn’t taste anything like the real thing.
I am still looking for an authentic and strong custard or pudding flavor myself because I think it would be a real game changer. I’ve tried so many different brands and flavors and not one is ticking the box for me.
Most people agree that CAP Vanilla Custard (not the v2, the original one) is one of the best on the market.
Try something different, there are so many good flavors.
@vinTage I’m the opposite of you. I am a custard-head, and love everything custard, and no matter how I try, when I use CAP VC I get this sort of “off” taste that doesn’t work for me. Tried everything, and found I had the same issue with a few of CAP’s flavors, mostly vanilla related, which REALLY sucks for me.
I ended up using TPA VC with no issues. Perhaps we are the exact opposite, and maybe CAP (as @VapeyMama suggested) will work for you. I’ve heard numerous stories of people getting peppery taste from TPA VBIC but I never have, nor do I from TPA’s VC. Clearly everyone’s tastes are different, and prefer different things.
Like @SessionDrummer explains, taste is very subjective and everyone has their own opinion about the flavors they use.
Usually people have a general idea about what they like or don’t like, so buy a couple small bottles of different brands, compare them, take notes and use whatever works for you.
You see this even the commercial juices. Some very popular juices taste like the most disgusting thing to me and I’ve also really enjoyed some juices that don’t really get good ratings. It’s normal, don’t study it too much. Just try and try and you will find something that’ll work wonders for you.
@vinTage you CAN’T have a band without bass and drums !!!
If you turn out to be a custard-head like me, FEAR NOT !!! There are many to choose from, and some are quite different. CAP VC is a very widely used flavor, so when I determined that “note” was putting me off, was rather bummed out. Started testing others, and found that for me, the TPA VC worked really well. Don’t hesitate to buy ALL the Vanilla Custards you can find (small bottles) and see what you like. Once you find a winner, you can sub it as you need if you want to try other people’s recipes. I haven’t totally given up on CAP VC yet, but with Inawera, and TPA I’ve got choices.
Yes. More eggy for sure. But I do like that you can add more caramel or brown sugar to boost if you want. I like to consider it more of a blank custard canvase. But it can oddly take over a mix in one recipe and not sure much in another.
