Off topic, but what coconut do you use and how do you like it? I can’t seem to find a true tasting coconut flavoring.
Did you try Flavour Art?
Currently using TPA coconut.
I’ve also got coconut extra on order to try.
My sister loves the coconut/Bavaraian cream recipe we created for her.
It’s in my recipes as Mels Coconut Cream if you wanted to try it.
The TPA coconut is quite nice IMO a little weak though.
Most mixes where I use it I have to use +8% even in mixers.
My sisters recipe is around 11% coconut.
I have and must say its the closest thing I’ve come across yet. Perhaps coconut is just one of those flavors that’s hard to simulate in a flavoring? Perhaps I’m not using enough in the mix or clouding the taste with other flavors in the mix. I haven’t tried the FW yet; maybe that has more kick than FA. Just got in some TPA coconut candy, but haven’t done a trial solo mix quite yet; got my fingers crossed it’ll be good.
I have it, but haven’t evaluated it yet, but Coconut Extra (TPA) is supposedly ok.
I hear Flavorah’s Coconut is good as well? Maybe @redruffensore can chime in on that?
Thanks for the move. I knew that off topic subject was going to get out of hand really quick.
No problem It occurred to me when I was typing my second reply hehe
I have Cap, FA, and TPA. I’ve used the Capella the most and am pretty happy with it. I haven’t done much with the FA or TPA yet since they’re new acquisitions, but I’ll let you know how they work out.
Earlier I said haven’t tried the FW coconut… I meant to say Capella. I’m starting to lean towards Capella for certain flavors more than I have in the past.
@Amy2; how do you feel about the TPA coconut candy?
I cant say i like coconut anything but my wife does. She likes Coconut (LA). It was the first one i got for her and she told me i need not look any further. As with most LA flavorings she says it is very candy like.
It’s decent. Probably would say it a 4/10 not true coconut d/t the candy esque behind it. Capella’s is probably the best I’ve had this far. TPA is weak, LA weak even generic wal-Mart brand ( forgot the name ) weak. I have not had the TPA coconut extra there’s some good recipes out there w/ it in it .
Piña colada v2 cap it’s good I use it around 3-4% nice coconut with hint of fruit.
As for which coconut is the best I’ve only used TPA COCONUT and TPA COCONUT EXTRA.
The EXTRA is far stronger than the normal.
I make the REDDIT clone from @daath SNAKE BLOOD as its my ADV and I’ve made this with both the normal and the extra.
The extra uses 1.5% and is really noticeable in the recipe.
When I use the normal I’ve gone up as high as 4% and still can’t taste the coconut like I can with only 1.5% of the extra.
So for now until my flavours list increases in saying the EXTRA.
Once again, another Capella flavor has been touted to surpass all others (ie vanilla custard); I’ll be adding their coconut to my next shopping list. Thx.
Lemon sicley isn’t that strong nor is cake batter or orange cream from capella’s but as far as taste goes they all are very very good!
I am starting to move away from their vanilla custards 1&2 probably more out of boredom and need new tastes I’ve been working with their simply vanilla for a little while. It is an acquired taste not the typical vanilla and I use it at lower % 's I think Ken said he liked this one too. Not many ppl like it.
