Underground Low-Calorie Vegan Banana Cocoa Ice Cream submitted by Ditz3n to snacking [link] [comments]


2023.06.06 13:09 ItjustHappens123 I got pissed that my ice cream was too frozen to cut so I ate it all.

Thankfully I had planned to eat the whole thing anyway today but not at once.
So I got this protein ice cream from lidl that has like about 20g of protein and 330 calories for the whole pint(pretty much like Halo top but 5 euro cheaper)
I had just eaten lunch (2 meatballs and a sandwich) and breakfast was like 2 hours ago(some muesli with a frozen banana) and I wanted a treat so I was like let's have half of this now and the rest at night after dinner.
I got the ice cream out of the freezer,heated up my spoon,got my scale ready and started to attempt to get it out but it wouldn't budge,heck some got in my face and floor rather on my plate,so I got so pissed I just dumped the whole thing on my plate and threw in some zero cal chocolate syrup(it's from a site My Protein,100ml is like 5 calories,def recommend it)and ate it.
And I deeply regret it,not so guilty wise rather because I was so uncomfortably full now, I can't even get myshelf up from the couch.
I have a bad temper and I was kinda angry with myshelf for how I spaced my meals that the ice cream was the last drop.

2023.06.05 21:22 ripp84 Trying to reduce carb load of my daily post-workout/breakfast shake

I've been low-ish carb for a couple of months. Lunch and dinner are quite low in carbs - only carb sources are nuts and non-starchy veggies. And I don't snack. The major carb load is my breakfast/post-workout shake, which contains a banana, 1/2 cup blueberries, 4 tbsp rolled oats, 2 eggs, 2 tbsp olive oil, 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa, and just enough milk to blend it all together (guessing ~3 oz). According to WolframAlpha, the macros are as follows:
calories: 587
carbs: 52g
fiber: 6g
net carbs: 46g
protein: 18g
Didn't bother calculating fat because I'm not trying to lose weight.
I'd like to lower the carbs so I can get into ketosis, and at 46g net carbs, this shake is keeping me out of ketosis. I really, really enjoy this shake, but I understand sacrifices will have to be made.
I'm thinking 1/2 frozen banana and substituting hemp hearts for oats (assuming hemp hearts don't have a strong flavor that would overpower the blueberries and cocoa, which are mostly what I taste). That would drop net carbs from 46g to 27g, which combined with very low carb rest of day plus the fact I'm consuming the shake right after a workout may be enough to get into and stay in ketosis? I can check ketone level with keto-mojo.
I really enjoy the creaminess of the shake, and absolutely hate water in my shakes, so it's tough to drop the milk, and I've tried almond and cashew milk in the past, but bleh. Maybe heavy cream?
Substitute for the 1/2 banana I'm cutting out? High fiber alternatives to hemp hearts, especially ones that aren't as expensive? Suggestions on improvements?

18 Psychology Tricks Restaurants Use To Make You Spend More Money

https://preview.redd.it/4obu99jiw74b1.jpg?width=1280&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=e7f4feb86647ee2f13e9fffabe21b0c380ce2ebb
18 Ways Restaurants Use Psychology To Make You Spend More Money
Dining out is so common, and you probably don’t think much about the work that goes into your dining experience. It’s worth noting though, that restaurants are not just about great food and impeccable service - they're also about using psychology to make you spend more money. Behind the scenes, menu engineers and consultants put careful thought into the way you choose what you eat. Here are some sneaky restaurant tricks that entice you to open your wallet and spend more than you intend to!
Number 1 - Selective Music You might not pay much attention to the music playing at your favorite hangout, but a thoughtful restaurant owner or manager certainly does. The music you hear depends on the establishment’s goals. If it’s a busy lunch place that depends on turning tables quickly to make a profit, you can expect up-tempo tunes. At night, in a fine-dining restaurant, where keeping you in your seat increases the odds of selling more wine or dessert, you can expect low-key music. You might even find that the same restaurant wears a different face depending on the time of day, using faster music in the daytime for quick turns, and mellow music at night for leisurely dining.
Number 2 - Lighting Lighting can also affect the pace at which people eat. Restaurants that blast up-tempo music, often use bright, aggressive lighting to get you in and out of the door faster. Likewise, fine dining establishments generally opt for mellow lighting, to get you into a more relaxed mood, hoping that you’ll spend more time and money.
Number 3 - Reading Patterns Restaurants consider scan-paths, which are a series of eye fixations that can be studied to see how people read certain things. According to studies, people look at the top right of the menu first, and the bottom left of the menu last. Thus, many restaurants will put the most expensive stuff (usually the anchor item) in the top right. It’ll catch your eye there, increasing its chances of selling, and it will also make the rest of the items look cheaper in comparison. A win-win for the restaurant!
Number 4 - Highlighting Sections Boxes, borders and white space draw the eye automatically. Restaurants will often highlight things like high-profit items or more expensive items in decorative boxes to draw your eyes to them. It’s a very simple premise but a very effective one. When you’re just browsing around the menu, chances are, you’re more likely to look at the part with all the decoration and vivid colors.
Number 5 - Limiting Options Many restaurants limit the offerings on a menu. The reason has to do with a psychological phenomenon known as "the paradox of choice." The more options we're given, the more anxiety we experience about making the right choice. A menu with more than seven items per category is likely to leave diners feeling "overwhelmed and confused." By limiting options, restaurants help diners relax their minds and decide faster.
Number 6 - Suggestive Selling Techniques The best servers are also salespeople. When you’re in the hands of a master, you’ll never even see it coming! Whether it’s a bubbly youngster telling you to save room for the ‘to die for’ chocolate cake, or a formally dressed sommelier hinting that there’s an extra-special Cabernet Sauvignon in your immediate future, waiters are proactively priming you to yield to temptation. This is one of the best psychology tricks at a restaurant’s disposal, because when it’s done well, it means they’re helping you rationalize something you already want. After all, that dessert won’t be as many calories if you split it, right?
Number 7 - Descriptive Language Have you ever just looked at the words on a menu? The ice cream is always “sweet and creamy.” Buffalo wings may be “tender, juicy, and drenched in a delicious, tangy sauce,” and so on. Restaurants go through a great deal to make each dish sound as delicious as possible. The reason is fairly obvious - they want your mouth to water, because it’s money in their pocket.
Number 8 - Family Connections Which of the following are you more likely to order? A slice of “Apple Pie”? Or “Grandma’s Old Fashioned Apple Pie?” Most likely, you would pick grandma’s pie, and that’s what most people would choose as well. Restaurants have figured out that by attaching some sort of family connection to a dish, they can tap into your own family connection - and even make you nostalgic for fond family memories - which will increase the chances that you'll want to order it. Large fast food chains generally can’t get away with stuff like this, but this technique works very well for those Mom and Pop’s diners.
Number 9 - Borrowed Branding Just as marketers exploit our familiarity and connection to well-known brands, so do restaurant menus. For example, fans of whiskey know the Jack Daniels name, and thus, they’re more likely to enjoy a sauce made from one of their favorite beverages. It doesn’t necessarily add a whole lot of value to the dish - often it’s difficult or impossible to taste the difference - but that brand recognition does give restaurateurs a lever to increase prices or drive additional sales.
Number 10 - Baked Fresh There’s nothing like the smell of something fresh from the oven, and restaurants and coffee shops are well aware of this. However, the words “baked fresh” on a menu mean relatively little, unless they’re followed with the words “from scratch.” Few establishments can afford the skill and labor required to make croissants, Danishes and similar pastries from scratch, so they’re usually bought frozen from a wholesaler and then thawed and baked as needed. It’s the same story with cakes… in most cases - especially in casual restaurants – they’re also bought frozen from a wholesaler. Pies and breads are easier to make in-house, so your odds are better with those items.
Number 11 - Different Portion Sizes One of the oldest tricks in the book, this practice is so common, it even has its own restaurant-lingo term: "bracketing." Menus will often give you the option of ordering two different sizes of a dish, and while you may think they're trying to get you to spend more by ordering the larger portion, the exact opposite is the case. In fact, the restaurant wants you to choose the smaller portion, which costs them less in raw materials and offers a higher profit margin. The difference in price is typically more than the cost of up-sizing the order, so the restaurant wins either way, even if you decide to order the larger portion.
Number 12 - Table Talkers Table talkers are the stands and flip-cards that stay on the table all day. They are a sort of secondary menu that draws both your gaze and hands as you wait for your server or your food. Table talkers are designed to take advantage of idle moments - similar to the impulse items at the supermarket checkout line. At the bar area, you can expect to see table talkers promoting high-profit cocktails or the kind of highly seasoned, addictive finger foods that get more appealing as the empty glasses accumulate. In the dining room, they’ll usually promote wine, drink specials or mouth-watering desserts. It’s relatively easy to say no to a server who pops by and offers a brief moment of temptation – but it’s much harder to resist that vivid, glossy, laminated page calling to your taste buds again and again.
Number 13 - Wait At The Bar Waiting at the bar until your table is ready is a pretty familiar scenario, and it probably won’t raise any red flags. After all, it’s better than standing in the foyer while the previous diners finish their coffee and dessert, right? Well, it’s definitely better for the restaurant. There’s a very good chance you’ll order a drink while you wait, and drinks are often more profitable than food. If you’d intended to have just a glass of wine with your meal, and you’ve had that glass while you’re waiting, you’ll probably still want one with the meal. That extra glass, multiplied by hundreds of diners, adds up.
Number 14 - The “Side Hustle” Hustling side dishes as a revenue-builder is a longstanding tradition in the restaurant industry. Those a la carte fries or onion rings make a huge difference in the profitability of a dish. That side dish improves your perception of the meal - even when the ingredients are as cheap as potatoes or onions.
Number 15 - Second-Least Expensive Wine Restaurants will often jack up the price of the second-cheapest bottle of wine on the menu. The psychology behind this is that most people don't want to appear to be a cheapskate by ordering the least expensive wine on the menu, but are thrifty enough to gravitate toward the second least expensive. Restaurants became wise to this and added a bigger markup on the second least expensive wine. It’s still the second least expensive but it’s the worst deal out of any wine on the menu!
Number 16 - Bundling Up One of the most universal tricks of the restaurant trade is bundling menu items. It’s psychologically a clear winner, offering what appears to be much better value for a relatively small increase in spending. This works like a charm at every level of dining. If you’ve ever opted for a combo at your local burger joint or Chinese takeout, you’ve experienced this at the low end. Surprisingly, it works in fine dining as well! Bundling a flight of multiple wines with a meal or a bottle rather than a glass, drives up the total revenue from your table quite nicely.
Number 17 - Banishing The Dollar Sign In restaurants above a certain price level, you’ll seldom see a dollar sign. You may shrug it off initially, because your conscious mind knows the dollar sign is still there, but it’s more important than you think. When you see dollar signs, you think of money. They don’t want you to think of money. They want you to think of food. Research shows that eliminating the dollar sign makes it psychologically easier for you to order costlier dishes. Rounding to an even dollar and dropping the decimal point and cents afterward has a similar effect.
Number 18 - Gift Cards Gift cards make the holiday season easier, and they help cut down on your wrapping paper budget, but they aren’t necessarily the best way to provide friends or family with a night out. When it comes to gift cards, most get lost in the junk drawer. In fact, more than $1 billion in gift cards go unused every year! This isn’t quite free money for the issuing restaurant, because eventually they’ll pay taxes on the unredeemed portion of that revenue - but it’s still profitable! The bottom line is, just like any other business, restaurants are always trying to sell you more. Without profit, a restaurant can’t survive, and that means they aren’t immune to the same kind of trickery other businesses engage in to make you spend more money. Now that you’ve learned some tricks of the trade, keep these in mind the next time you order! We want to know what you think! Do you dine out often? Which of these tricks of the restaurant industry surprised you the most? Let us know in the comments below.

2023.06.05 04:42 BlackTemplars Hawaii - two week honeymoon trip review Dec 2022

Have some time to finally write a trip review for Maui and the Big Island of Hawaii for my honeymoon in December 2022 for two weeks. Mid December and left for home on Christmas Day. This was our first time redeeming cc points for anything, so lots of trial and error and lessons learned.
My wife and I had gotten married in October and were actually not planning going on honeymoon until Spring 2023 until we researched further and managed to make December 2022 work in our favor. We started planning and booking reservations TWO months before our trip. We are very fortunate to have done it in that time span and managed to make almost everything work out.
IAD - DTW - SEA - OGG on Delta, First Class One way.
Maui
Day 1
Got to Maui late in the night and picked up our rental car, a Chevy Equinox, with Enterprise. Used my Hilton Aspire to get 7x points.
One night at Courtyard Marriott by the airport and paid $500.
It was the best we could do with our timing.
Day 2 - 6
Breakfast and lunch was by the food trucks near Costco. Shopping nearby for supplies for our vacation.
Meals (Costco food trucks):
5 nights at the Grand Wailea - 440,000 HH points
Left to check into our resort the Grand Wailea in Wailea. Both the wife and I are Hilton Diamond members. Mine through the Hilton Aspire and she has status through actual stays. We booked these nights through her account and using all Hilton points. Each reward night was 110,000 points and we got the 5th night free. So 440,000 points total.
This resort was huge and immaculate. Words can describe how nice this place is and the customer service is SUPERB. Literally, the best we have ever experienced. You only have to see and experience it for yourself. My wife and I still talk weekly about the Grand Wailea.
We booked the Terrace View - 1 King Bed as the Standard Night Reward and upon arrival we were upgraded to the Deluxe Ocean View - 1 King Bed in the Molokini wing. Breathtaking views! Avg cash price so this room type is around ~$988 before taxes, fees so it comes to 0.89 CPP (if not including taxes, fees in the total). All meals, incidentals, shopping, and experiences were put onto my Hilton Aspire. Daily food and beverage credit was $25 each for the two of us and used usually at their divine but pricey breakfast buffet. No resort fees charged for booking with points which saved us hundreds of dollars. We immensely enjoyed ourselves at this resort and the lush, manicured surrounding area.
Meals:
Experiences: renting a cabana at the Grand Wailea pool, spa day at the Four Seasons with outdoor hale beachside, Wailea Beach, hiking Twin Falls, Baby Beach, Haleakala National Park
Day 7 - 8
Two nights at the Hotel Wailea, Relais & Chateaux using Amex FHR.
Paid total ~$3400 for the One bedroom, Luxury Suite, Ocean View. Unfortunately, no upgrade upon checking in. Hotel was sold out. Daily breakfast in the form of $30 credit per person and $100 food/bev credit given through the FHR. This stay triggered the $200 FHR credit for my wife's Amex Plat
Quiet, small resort, adults only. We enjoyed our stay here and loved our room. Bed was harder than what we were use to and it was far from the beach. Otherwise we loved the restaurant and the ability to "get away". One of the top hotels in Maui and all of Hawaii. Price tag to boot.
Meals:
Experiences: cabana and pool day at Hotel Wailea, spa day at Montage Kapalua Bay. Outdoor hale with hot tub.
Big Island of Hawaii
Day 9 OGG - KOA (Big Island) round trip booked with Hawaiian Airlines. $106 for each of us before baggage fees. Booked direct using wife's Amex Plat.
Arrived to the Big Island and rented a Toyota Prius though Budget. Paid using Hilton Aspire.
Day 9 - 15
We booked the Hilton Waikoloa Village using all Hilton points, 6 nights in total with one night free. 350,000 pts in total used, 70,000 each night. Initially the standard room redemption was for the Palace Tower Resort View - 1 King Bed and was going for ~$540 a night before taxes/fees so CPP was 0.77. We realized even before our trip that the Palace Tower and old, needed a refresh, and was terribly far from the beach and the parking lot. We asked for an upgrade when we checked in and was given the option to move to the Makai Tower - Ocean View 1 King Bed for an additional $75 per night. We promptly took this offer. This room runs ~$694 per night before taxes/fees and if I subtract the $75 per night, I calculate this to be 0.88 CPP. The Makai tower was much better, our room overlooked the ocean and part of the resort. Frankly, Palace looked like dogshit. Daily F&B credit was $18 for each person. Incidentals again went onto my Hilton Aspire.
Towards the end of our stay, we stayed at the DoubleTree Hilo using 50,000 pts. Room rate was $308 before taxes/fess. CPP was 0.61. This was on the other side of the island and very far from Hilton Waikoloa so we decided to stay overnight there after hiking Volcanoes NP instead of driving to the west side in the middle of the night.
Meals:
Experiences: Kauna'oa Beach, Mauna Kea sunset and stargazing (this is a must!!), Captain Cook monument snorkeling, Pu'uhonua o Honaunau National historical park, Punalu-u Black Sand Beach, Volcanoes National Park, Akaka Falls.
Trip home: OGG - LAX - IAD. United, First Class One way.
Overall, an EXCELLENT trip. We were amazed and thrilled to do so much in two weeks and in such short notice. Again, only two months to plan once our dates were finalized. Between my wife and I, we have the Amex Plat and Gold, Hilton Honors and Aspire, and CFU, CSP. Each card strategically used during our trip. The FHR credit triggered for my wife, and my Aspire triggered the $250 resort credit. If I had to guess, we saved ~$15,000 or more by redeeming CC points. Hope this data point helps some of you trip planning, happy to answer any questions.

Red dragon fruit, also known as pitaya, is a tropical fruit that is not only visually striking but also offers several culinary possibilities. Here are some ideas for what you can do with the best red dragon fruit:
  1. Eat it fresh: The simplest and most common way to enjoy red dragon fruit is to eat it fresh. Cut the fruit in half and scoop out the flesh with a spoon. It has a mildly sweet and refreshing taste, similar to a combination of kiwi and pear.
  2. Add it to fruit salads: Red dragon fruit adds vibrant color and a unique flavor to fruit salads. Slice the fruit into cubes or wedges and toss it with other fruits like pineapple, mango, and berries for a delicious and visually appealing salad.
  3. Blend it into smoothies: Red dragon fruit works exceptionally well in smoothies due to its natural sweetness and vibrant color. Blend it with other fruits like banana, strawberry, or pineapple, along with your choice of liquid (water, coconut water, or plant-based milk), and enjoy a refreshing and nutritious smoothie.
  4. Make dragon fruit bowls: Dragon fruit bowls have become quite popular as a healthy breakfast or snack option. Blend the fruit with a little liquid (such as coconut water or almond milk) and pour the mixture into a bowl. Top it with granola, sliced fruits, nuts, and seeds for a visually stunning and nutritious bowl.
  5. Create dragon fruit popsicles: Beat the summer heat by making dragon fruit popsicles. Blend the fruit with some coconut water or fruit juice and pour the mixture into popsicle molds. Freeze them until solid, and you'll have a refreshing and healthy treat.
  6. Bake with it: Red dragon fruit can be used in baking to add a unique twist to your recipes. You can incorporate the fruit into cakes, muffins, or bread for a burst of color and flavor. Consider making a dragon fruit loaf or dragon fruit cupcakes.
  7. Make dragon fruit jam or jelly: If you have a surplus of dragon fruit, you can turn it into a delicious jam or jelly. Cook the fruit with sugar and lemon juice until it thickens, and then preserve it in sterilized jars. The resulting jam or jelly can be used as a spread on toast or as a topping for desserts.
Remember that red dragon fruit stains easily, so be careful when handling it, especially when preparing dishes or cutting it. Enjoy experimenting with this versatile fruit and have fun exploring various recipes and combinations to suit your taste preferences.

  • How do you make red dragon fruit taste better?
Red dragon fruit, also known as pitaya, has a mild and subtly sweet flavor on its own. However, if you're looking to enhance its taste or add more flavor, here are a few suggestions:
  1. Pair it with other fruits: Combine red dragon fruit with other fruits to create a flavor combination. Mix it with sweeter fruits like mango, pineapple, or strawberries to enhance the overall taste.
  2. Squeeze some citrus juice: A squeeze of lime, lemon, or orange juice can help brighten the flavor of red dragon fruit. The citrus juices add a tangy and refreshing element that complements the fruit's sweetness.
  3. Sprinkle with a touch of salt or Tajin: A sprinkle of salt can help balance the sweetness and enhance the overall flavor. Alternatively, you can try Tajin, a Mexican seasoning blend of chili, lime, and salt. The slight kick from the chili can add an interesting twist to the taste.
  4. Add a drizzle of honey or agave syrup: If you prefer a sweeter flavor profile, you can drizzle a small amount of honey or agave syrup over the red dragon fruit. This will enhance the sweetness and add a hint of floral or caramel notes.
  5. Use it in a smoothie or juice blend: Red dragon fruit can be blended with other fruits, such as banana, berries, or pineapple, to create a flavorful and refreshing smoothie or juice. Experiment with different combinations to find the taste you enjoy the most.
  6. Incorporate it into desserts: Red dragon fruit can be used to add a pop of color and flavor to desserts. Incorporate it into dishes like sorbets, ice creams, puddings, or even baked goods like cakes and tarts.
Remember, the taste of red dragon fruit is unique, and its appeal lies in its mild sweetness and visually striking appearance. Feel free to explore different flavor combinations and recipes to find what suits your palate the best.

  1. Rich in antioxidants: Red dragon fruit is rich in antioxidants, such as vitamin C, which help protect your body against free radicals and oxidative stress.
  2. Good source of vitamins and minerals: Red dragon fruit is a good source of essential vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, vitamin B, iron, and magnesium.

  • Why is my red dragon fruit not sweet?
There could be several reasons why your red dragon fruit is not as sweet as expected:
  1. Ripeness: The sweetness of dragon fruit is influenced by its ripeness. If the fruit is not fully ripe, it may not develop its full sweetness. Look for dragon fruits that have a bright, vibrant color and are slightly soft to the touch. A ripe dragon fruit should give a little when gently squeezed. If the fruit is still firm and the color is dull, it may not be fully ripe and therefore less sweet.
  2. Variety: Different varieties of dragon fruit can have varying levels of sweetness. Some varieties naturally have a milder flavor profile. If you have tried a particular variety and found it less sweet, you can explore different varieties to find the one that suits your taste preferences.
  3. Growing conditions: The taste of dragon fruit can be influenced by the growing conditions, including climate, soil quality, and cultivation techniques. Fruits grown in optimal conditions may tend to be sweeter compared to those grown in less favorable environments.
  4. Storage and handling: Improper storage or handling of dragon fruit can affect its flavor. If the fruit is stored at low temperatures or exposed to excessive heat, it may impact the development of its sweetness. Additionally, rough handling during transportation or storage can cause damage to the fruit, affecting its taste.
  5. Individual taste perception: Taste preferences can vary among individuals. What may be sweet to some may not be as sweet to others. The perception of sweetness can also be influenced by other factors like overall diet, palate sensitivity, and taste buds.
If you consistently find that your red dragon fruit lacks sweetness despite considering the above factors, it may be worth exploring different sources or varieties to find one that meets your expectations. Additionally, discussing your concerns with local farmers or suppliers who specialize in dragon fruit may provide insights into specific factors that could affect the sweetness in your region.
  • Which is better red or white dragon fruit?
The choice between red and white dragon fruit, also known as pitaya, comes down to personal preference as both varieties have their own unique qualities. Here's a comparison to help you understand the differences:
Red Dragon Fruit:
  1. Appearance: Red dragon fruit has a vibrant red or magenta skin with green scales, giving it a visually striking appearance. The flesh is typically white or red with small black seeds scattered throughout.
  2. Flavor: Red dragon fruit tends to have a mildly sweet taste with subtle floral notes. Some describe it as a cross between a kiwi and a pear.
  3. Nutritional Content: Red dragon fruit is rich in vitamin C, antioxidants, fiber, and other essential nutrients. It also contains betacyanins, which contribute to its vibrant red color and antioxidant properties.
White Dragon Fruit:
  1. Appearance: White dragon fruit has a pale yellow or white skin with green scales, making it appear more subdued compared to the vibrant red variety. The flesh is usually white with small black seeds.
  2. Flavor: White dragon fruit generally has a milder and sweeter taste compared to the red variety. It is often described as a blend of pear, kiwi, and melon flavors.
  3. Nutritional Content: White dragon fruit is also rich in vitamin C, antioxidants, fiber, and other beneficial nutrients. While it may have a slightly different phytonutrient profile compared to red dragon fruit, both varieties offer similar nutritional benefits.
  4. Ultimately, the choice between red and white dragon fruit depends on your personal taste preferences and the visual appeal you are looking for. Both varieties are nutritious and can be enjoyed in various culinary applications, such as eating them fresh, adding them to smoothies or salads, or using them in desserts. It can be fun to try both varieties and decide which one you prefer.

CAPELLA Honeydew Melon

Update. I gave CAP Honeydew Melon one chance to stick around, a recipe called “Melon Blow Pop.” Before trying it, I wondered what made this recipe a "blow pop" considering there aren't any gum flavors, but something about the way these flavors combine does give it a very interesting bubblegum-y aspect in addition to the candy melon and apple. And the candy apple-melon is great. Unfortunately, I also get a slight perfumy-type off note from the recipe. Specifically, a baby scent perfume. You know, whatever it is that makes baby stuff like baby lotion, baby oil, baby powder all have that same baby scent. I hate that, so CAP Honeydew Melon is history. TRASH 1
 

FLAVOUR ART

 
Royal
Accidentally passed over this one last time. I found it to be a kind of warm and spicy tobacco; with a spice note or notes similar to cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and ginger, but not specifically or distinctly any of those. Also found it odd that despite having no menthol taste or cooling it kind of hits me right in the same spot that menthol does.
I purchased this flavor to make Chem Twista Lime - cigarette with a pinch of lime - and will continue to use it for that. TASK 1 But, I can’t find anything else that I want to do with it.
 
Shade
I don’t know what this is, but it’s not tobacco. It tastes like dirty cooked fruit sweetness, like just part of cooked dark berries or stewed prunes, just the sweetness from them and not their distinct aromas, mixed with something earthy and pushing dirty tobacco but not authentically tobacco. But, it does taste like it would be a good ingredient to use in a fruity tobacco, like you would need a tobacco, and a fruit, but this could be a bridge ingredient.
Already plan to mix CBV’s Cherry Oak Tobacco that uses it. Will also try his Southern Lights recipe for a bourbon-vanilla tobacco that uses it TASK 2, and the very solid looking Bob’s Bacco. TASK 3 I just wished the new ATF showed steep times because I’m not sure how long to steep these. Anyone have a guess? Three weeks sound about right?
 
Soho
I don’t consider this tobacco flavor. It’s more like... Dirty Trail Mix, but in the best possible way.
Slightly dirty roasted nut crust? It’s an odd, complex, flavor that’s oddly weak for FA (8% is not unusual for a mix) with something lightly tobacco-ish, kind of toasty, in there somewhere along with a lot of other stuff - some roasted nuttiness, something like a graham cracker-type or pie crust bakery, a bit of caramel or brown-sugar like sweetness but not too sweet, maybe some raisin-y type sweetness as well. Dry, yet smooth. It’s not a rich flavor but it has plenty of dry bakery-like body.
No, I’m not throwing away FA Soho. I need it for 1-2-3 Burley TASK 4 and it’s used in about 10 recipes I’m planning to try.
Adding to that - I can’t wait to try Pistachio Brulee - Soho. It’s a lot of TFA Pistachio and not a lot of FA Soho for a “comforting warm deep dessert tobacco,” but I still think it’s going to be terrific. TASK 5
Will also add Maga for the simplicity - it’s just FA Soho, FLV Mild Tobacco, and FLV Vanilla tobacco. TASK 6
And because I’m feeling brave, Arcanite, a weird-looking recipe that mixes Soho with Meringue, White Peach, and TFA Dragonfruit. TASK 7
 
Sour Wizard
Held off on ever trying this for a long time because I’d already been burnt by too many supposedly sour things to get excited about FA coming out with Sour Wizard. Anyway, it doesn’t really taste sour, not like sour candy tastes sour, not at 2% anyway, but it definitely has a noticeably tart “pop” to it, more so than the others. Very bright. Other sour additives don’t have much fruitiness but this one does have a very slight green apple kind of taste to it. Top heavy with a dead finish but the sour-ish flavor does carry just a little deeper than just being right on top. The usual suspect acids might be the main ingredients, but FA definitely did more than just put malic and/or citric acid in a bottle with PG, and it shows. Unfortunately, I could not find a single recipe using it that I both felt inclined to mix and had all the ingredients to mix. TRASH 2
 
Spearmint
Aka, “White Winter.” Tastes like the disembodied spirit of weak spearmint gum. Not much body or sweetness. No leafy green stuff. Not extra methol-ed up.
I’m pretty sure I would be fine without it but there is just one recipe I want to try first, just to make sure.
Spearing Mint, Creamy Concoction is one. Although FA and TFA Spearmints aren’t the mints I’d choose for the job, I’m really interested in this “slight spearmint note with sweetened heavy cream” profile, and the sweetened heavy cream part looks great. TASK 8
 
Stark Apple
Sweet red apple, fairly accurately tastes like a red delicious apple or apple juice. I think red delicious is actually the least delicious of apples, but if you don’t, or you need that as a component, this offers it. I guess some people say it tastes more like a yellow apple but I always associate those with having more of a “ripe,” kinda sweaty taste. FA Stark Apple is quite sweet, with a deep natural sweetness, not a ton of flavor, but the flavor that’s there is on point. No tartness or crispness - not very fresh tasting. Sweet and timid enough that I would use it to sweeten a mix of other fruits without worrying much about it getting in the way. Not dry, but not really juicy. Very smooth, does not add any throat hit. Some body, with that mild flavor on top and a medium thick sweeter base, not too thin.
I really liked Strap-On Aid when I tried it six years ago, let’s see if I still do. TASK 9
There are a bunch of apple bacco recipes and at least a handful of them use FA Stark Apple. The one that looks most appealing to me is this Starkonja’s Head, mostly because it has serious, grown-up tobaccos in there and not just RY4 Double and Soho. TASK 10
 
Strawberry (Red Touch)
Fairly weak for FA. I call it the astronaut strawberry, not that I’ve ever had one, but it’s what I imagine eating a freeze-dried strawberry would be like. It tastes natural, with that subtle earthy note that brings some realism to the party, but unnaturally dry. Not juicy at all. Top notes are mild, slightly tart, and the finish is weak but there’s a solid middle that tastes like a semi-sweet ripe strawberry only without any juice. It’s not the best standalone strawberry by far, but it is a great tool. Seems to work really well as part of a strawberry layer to make sweet candy strawberries taste more natural and fill out the middle more, despite not working so well by itself. Cranking it up too high that earthy note starts to get a little grassy, like freeze-drying that strawberry leaves and all.
No, I do not agree with those who say it smells like farts, and no, I’m not throwing away part of the original Strap-On and many of the Strap-On variants. t’s in more than half a dozen things on my to-mix list.
I also need it for Lychee Blossom, which is a fantastic lychee recipe that I love. TASK 11
And I want to try Strawberry Whirl which is described as “layered strawberry jam, light fluffy cream on a whirl cookie.” It had me at OoO Strawberry Jam. TASK 12
StrawMelon Melee because I love cantaloupe and strawberry together and this looks like a great new cantaloupe-strawberry mix. TASK 13
Custard’s Last Stand because I’m very interested in how that WF Sugar Cone fits in there. TASK 14
Daveberry Cheesecake because it’s named after me! TASK 15
Yuno because it looks like a great strawberry milk and I’m really interested in the combination of WF Macadamia Nut and OoO Cream Milky Undertone it uses. TASK 16
 
Strawberry Green
That’s what it tastes like, underripe strawberry. Very green like you can taste the chlorophyll, and pretty tart, but very clearly a strawberry, and has some syrupy sweetness. It tastes like a small amount of it could do amazing things with other strawberries, like making them taste brighter and more refreshing, maybe making a flat sweet candyish strawberry taste more like the real thing.
Pretty excited to try things with this one, already have a couple planned. Mike’s Peach, Strawberry and Vanilla looks like a winner, too. I’m really interested in the combination of WF Strawberry Gummy Candy and FA Strawberry Green for the strawberry and even more interested in the combination of FA Peach White and SSA Nectarines for the peach. TASK 17
 
Summer Clouds
I’m not sure who started calling it FA Dryer Sheets, but I can confirm that is an accurate description. It’s supposed to be peach and rose, it think, but I get a hint of peach and a whole lot of dryer sheets. TRASH 3
 
Tiramisu
There’s a really nice ladyfinger cookie buried in here, and accurate cocoa notes, but unfortunately nothing resembling mascarpone flavor or richness, and even more unfortunately, it’s all soaked in, not liqueur-spiked espresso like it’s supposed to be, but booze-free coffee brewed by a skunk who had recently sprayed skunk spray and burned some popcorn in the same kitchen where he made the coffee. TRASH 4
 
Torrone
As best I can tell it’s actually accurate to a certain type of Italian nougat that contains lemon zest, almonds, pistachios, vanilla, sugar, honey, and egg whites. I’ve never had that, but it pretty much tastes like what I imagine all of that stuff mixed together might taste like. It’s sweet and creamy and nutty and lemony all at the same time. I’m not personally a huge fan of this mostly because the lemon feels weird in there and it seems a bit busy, for a single flavor, but it’s not terrible. It’s a little on the thin side, but just a little; there’s still enough body there to pull off a sugary creamy texture. The nuts aren’t distinctly almondy or pistachio tasting and more of a generic nuttiness.
Need it for Stag Night, also interested in trying The Key To Happiness, described as “a nice piece of store bought key lime pie like you find in the freezer section of your local grocery store. TASK 18
 
Up
This one is so odd. It’s coffee, cream, and... cereal? I don’t know why there’s a bakery flavor in there. It’s coffee forward and that coffee is not terrible, it’s kind of burnt but not dark, like a light roast coffee that’s been on a warmer too long or at too high a temp. There’s a little milky cream that makes an appearance and then there’s some bakery that is, for whatever reason, supposed to be a cereal. I guess it’s cereal? It’s kinda dry and gritty, almost graham cracker like. It finishes on that note and I’m not sure what you’re supposed do with that other than use this to add a coffee note to a bakery recipe, or get really creative. No skunk spray or burnt popcorn or anything like that, so above average for a coffee flavor, but also nothing I want to mix that uses it. TRASH 5
 
Vanilla Bourbon
Thin, natural-ish and darker but not quite spicy vanilla. Really very plain to my taste, Rick calls it warm and a little floral. I’m not getting any warmth or floralness, it tastes more like an attempt at vanilla bean that doesn’t quite get there but is more of a bold natural vanilla than a lot of other offerings. There's a richness or depth to the vanilla flavor, but not to the concentrate itself, it’s actually rather thin, it will most likely will not add the perception of creaminess or thickness that many vanilla flavors do.
Three or four things I’ve planned to mix use it. Here’s two more: Premium Vanilla Custard - obvious from looking at it that it’s going to be delicious. I see you, OoO Marshmallow. TASK 19
And Shunsui Kyoraku. I’m scared of the WF Egg Yolk in there, but not too scared to give it a try. TASK 20
 
Vanilla Cookie
tTis is a very vanilla cookie. Loads of baked in kinda bright but not overly bright vanilla taste. Also, pretty buttery. There’s a nice cookie there in the middle of that butter and vanilla. Without steeping, the cookie is just a little too sharp (nutty, overcooked, pyrazine) for my taste, but it vapes smooth overall with all that vanilla and butter. If it had just a little less pyrazine sharp overcooked nuttiness (and I’m told it does have less of that with a longer steep than the five or six days I gave it before sampling 2.5%), it could get fairly close to a Golden Oreo type of thing.
I already have at least 10 recipes I’m going to make that use it, but also:
3 2 1 Stroopwaffel I don’t know how accurate that will be, but I love VT Honeycomb and looking forward to seeing how SSA Crisp Waffle and FA Vanilla Cookie mix with it. TASK 21
And Makoto Shishio, because I love the idea of an “oreo waffle with cream filling." TASK 22
 
Vanilla Ice Cream
Milky, plain base, not custardy at all - more like gelato. Darker vanilla. I don’t love it, simply as a matter of personal preference and liking a richer style of ice cream, but there’s nothing wrong with it. I’ve got at least recipes in line that use it, and here’s one more that stood out: Lemon Gelato. Looks refreshing and satisfying. TASK 23
 
Vanilla Tahity
This is every bit as much an almond flavor as a vanilla flavor, I get more almond than vanilla. It even has a bit of a cherry-ish note to it the way some almond flavors do. It’s like sweet almond-vanilla-cherry, or amaretto and marzipan. It’s a bit dry, but there’s fluffy marshmallow-like body to it, and it’s not dry enough to be unpleasant. I actually kind of enjoy vaping this as a single flavor. The hint of cherry is similar to the hint of cherry in amaretto, not a medicinal plastic cherry. The vanilla is very bright and artificial, like the vanilla in a vanilla coke, not a coke with vanilla syrup added like at a soda shop or Sonic, but just the vanilla from a can of vanilla coke.
Already planning to keep it long enough to mix one custard recipe that uses it, now I have two more things to try:
This recipe for Vanilla Crescent Cookies looks wonderful. TASK 24
And I’m really interested in the combination of VT Creaming Soda and WF Cotton Candy Jelly Bean in this Blue Balls recipe for blue raz and vanilla hard candy, even if I think FA Vanilla Tahity was probably not the best vanilla for the job. TASK 25
 
Vienna Cream
Absolutely requires a steep, not just to come into itself, but to not be disgusting. It’s weird how much better this gets after steeping for just about 4 days. Freshly mixed, it tastes like someone tried to make spiked eggnog and substituted nail polish remover for rum. After a short steep, it tastes like a very sweet, light dairy cream, on the thin side of creams but still very much a cream. with a bit of bright vanilla and an interesting sort of ice cream-like crispness to it. Very smooth, clean tasting. Have found it sometimes works when other creams don’t, just takes a little patience.
I need it for four of my all-time favorite recipes, Mango Beauregarde, Notorious, Vurve’s Vanilla Almond Milk, and Vanilla Cronut.
Gotta try The Worlds End, too. It looks like too much TFA DX PB for the profile - banana nut bread with chocolate sauce - but looks delicious, regardless. TASK 26
 
New Flavor Count: 2,429
 
Just a short one this time, to get back in the groove. I went on vacation, brought COVID back as a souvenir, and have had a bunch of work to catch up on because of all that. Will finish off the Flavour Art next week.

2023.06.01 20:54 meggieprice Peanut butter crisp featuring Butterfinger- yay or nay?

Knowing me I will succumb anyway when I pick up my catering order- but would love opinions.
ps why oh why wont my location do key lime pie, banana cream pie, or oreo mallow sandwich?

To new beginnings! New tent, Mars Hydro 4'×4', new inline exhaust just a cheapy for the smaller tent! Already have the AC Infinity 69pro controller along w/ the T6 and T8 for my 8'×4'tent! New ladies, Ice Cream Cake, Vanilla Cream Pie, Cherry Gar C Ya, and Lava Cake×Pressure!
Girls are in their new temporary home until they get bigger and are clone worthy! Eddie's Tree's provided the Lava Cake×Pressure. So cant wait to see this girl put on. Vanilla Cream Pie from Humboldt, Cherry Gar C Ya from Ethos which we all know is def a beefy girl when she gets bigger, and last and Im very much hoping not the least is the Ice Cream Cake. A little skeptical about this one due to the fact that I had Banana Sherbet along w/ the Ice Cream Cake I had ordered from Everything420, and none of the Banana Sherbet popped out of 6 and only 2 of my Ice Cream Cake popped out of 6, and they both started off with issues. Not sure their the best place to shop if you looking for solid genetics. No disrespect but people should know what they are getting! Other than that life is great! Will keep updated as the grow goes on! Hope everyone is having a great day! Keep it green growmies!
