This is a good one for me because it is a straight up Shake-N-Vape (I hate having to be patient and wait for steeps). Light, great sweet flavor. I use 50/50 VG/PG because Sucralose is a bit of a coil killer, as if anyone doesn't know. That ratio helps offset that. I'm a simple man, so there are not many ingredients. Be warned that this is intentionally a sweet one.

Interesting TW - but where is the Vanilla - that would calm down the sweetness.

RE: Big Top
Don't wanna mute the sweetness at all. Vary any ol' way you want though!

I will try this with some Vanilla - this will increase the flavour ratio slightly but should not alter the original too much.

Looks very interesting although I don't have Rainbow Sherbet (may have to update my wishlist). I've also never used cotton candy that high before. When I go over 3-4%, I usually experience flavor some muting/burnt sugar taste, but like I said, I've never used it with the sherbet AND I mix max VG, too. I do really like the sound of this flavor combination, though!

RE: Big Top
TFA Rainbow sherbet is a great version, tastes just like it. I love the ones that can be one-ingredient mixes and it fits the bill. I believe it has sucralose because the high VG blends I used to make were coil angry.

RE: Big Top
OK, I'm throwing this out there, not likely to get a definitive answer, but anyway...

So I found Rainbow Sherbet by buying a bottle of it back in the old days from a local vendor. (The Vape Mall). It was a dead ringer to TFA's when I later bought the concentrate. But their juice did not foul my build like the TFA DIY does. Theirs was a 50/50 at 3mg like I make now. Would anyone have any idea why theirs didn't foul the bill, unless it was not actually TFA's and didn't contain any sweetener?

RE: Big Top
Could be the 50:50. Which also means you don't need as much flavour. Might be worth a try.

I believe this means you already tried it at 50/50, correct?

Best I can assume is that it's actually a different flavoring that just happens to taste the same. Could be another straight flavor, or a recipe. My best advice would be to get another bottle of the original stuff if you can then try to replicate it using other brands. I can't think of any other reason why it would be different, unless you're using impure PG or VG but then all your juice would have the same problem.
