Haha.There hasn’t been a single time I’ve logged into ELR where I don’t see at least 2-3 WTFs whilst browsing. And I just can’t keep my yap shut so I let 'em know in a comment!
I mostly keep my thoughts to myself on the recipes side… mainly because of my early mixes. It’s like a phase most of us oldies has gone through where we really didn’t know any better. Offering advice isn’t always taken well so I just try to let it go. I think to myself, after enuff failure they will learn.
I think newer mixers need to find their niche, which comes in time. I know I spent a year wasting money, flavors and gear before I settled on what works for me.
I’ve ordered Vanilla bean ice cream too, i have however seen a few comments about a peppery taste from it hope that’s exaggerated
not exaggerated at all , however some people dont get the pepper taste , those are people i consider lucky , Hope that your not one of those who gets the pepper taste, for me it is also with TpA Vanilla Custard
IMO it is over exaggerated. This is a good ice cream when mixed and steeped properly. Those that get a peppery taste is a minority. I wouldn’t worry too much, just try it for yourself.
I usually mix it at 2.5% or less and add a little extra cream and vanilla to bolster it up a bit.
As you can see below it’s the most popular by far…
i agree with @Pro_Vapes , that you should try it yourself , it is the only way to find out if it works for you , however steeping and mixing have nothing to do with the pepper taste if you are one of the unlucky ones who taste this , i would suggest only buying 10ml just in case …
@Amy2 is the 1st person I heard mention the peppery taste from VBIC TPA. Here’s her comment from one of my mixes that she tried…

I tried this a few days early mistakenly but it’s great. I don’t mind VBIC being 2% or lower I know it has a few more days til perfection but it’s great and I do get a wonderful SB Ice Cream Sandwich effect… I will be increasing my batch size as this is right up my alley. It’s always nice to reunite w/ an old fav like VBIC I haven’t been using it all too often but I’m glad I didn’t sub it out I think the combo really makes this recipe. Nice Job PV
I second this. It doesn’t matter at what percent I use it or for how long it steep; the pepper is still there.
Being the most popular doesn’t mean it’s good for everyone, case in point Justin Bieber. I can’t vape anything with TPA VBIC in it as the pepper taste is overpowering.
I never made this claim, but it’s worth a try. I’ve tried quite a few and this one works best for me. If I only used flavors the everyone liked there would be nothing left to use.
How do you add a IC effect to your mixes? I’m not a big fan of TPA flavors, but this is one that works for me and a large majority of mixers. I just don’t want @videogamingtown to be deterred before he/she even had a chance to try it. It’s all subjective as we all know.
For the time being I don’t do IC mixes bc it’s the only one I have. Smells very nice. Tastes bad - for me - as it is subjective, like you say.
I also think it’s ok to mention it like @fidalgo_vapes did, because a lot of us actually can’t use it. Totally envious of you that can.
This seems the wisest course of action for any flavor really. Before I started with creams I read a lot about the peppery taste of TPA VBIC. Since I did find this mysterious peppery taste from a few of the retail juices I’d tried I suspected they might have been using TPA. I just went with Cap VBIC and it’s lovely. If it’s in your budget, try a small bottle of both, or three or five or as many Ice Cream flavors as you want. MUST GET THEM ALL!!!
I use capella and flavour west VBIC now and they work great. I also have an RF SC tester in at the moment, I’ve heard really good reports about that one.
thanks for giving the correct advice at last
What works for one doesn’t work for all, I don’t get peppery taste from TPA VBIC but I don’t like at as much as FW which is the one I have gone back to now, and I use it A LOT…but I’m not pretentious enough to say that what I think is the right thing to do, everyone is different and that is never more true than with flavour.
Try em all…fuck it
Care to share some of your successes, as I can’t find any of your mixes on the recipe side? I’d love to see how you use them.
Wow this went south fast.
I agree… I seem to invoke controversy in some circles for offering my opinion.
Once I’m done with my Real Flavours and happy with the results I shall do just that.
Thanks, I’m looking forward to it.
Dear, this isn’t about you or your opinion. Now you might think of it differently, but I think of us all in here as equals - with equal rights to express our opinions. None more important than the other. It’s all subjective.
