RE: chocolate flavor base
From what I've been told, chocolate is a very hard flavor profile to nail down. I've had a few good chocolate juices, but generally they're more like "Cocoa Pebbles" cereal rather than real chocolate. The problem with chocolate is that part of the experience is how it feels in your mouth, which can't really be replicated by vaping. The best chocolate concentrates I've tried are double fudge brownie from Capella's, and a mint chocolate chip from Mt. Baker Vapor. Neither are a real chocolate flavor, since one has mint and the other is a more bakery kind of chocolate cake/brownie flavor, but they're both very good.

RE: chocolate flavor base
texture will be lost so illusion will be necessary . as a cook in an old age home i leaned a touch of vinilla gives an elusion of creamy texture along with a bit of cream i hope to create a milk chocolate flavor .
the general idea is to first create a base .
7:2:1 chocolate cream vinilla , which can be deluted in water to get an idea of balance and adjusted if need be

RE: chocolate flavor base
I've yet to find a chocolate flavour that was remotely convincing. But good luck with it Chuck!

RE: chocolate flavor base
For me finding a good chocolate hasn't been too hard since I'm not that picky, the main thing I want chocolate for is to replicate a chocolate truffle pipe tobacco I used to smoke, so the chocolate doesn't have to be perfect since it's mixed with tobacco. That's the one thing about smoking that I miss, sitting under a tree packing my pipe with that heavenly chocolate truffle tobacco, then puffing away for hours just sitting and thinking and relaxing. God, I miss my pipe, and unfortunately that's one thing that vaping can't replace. Sure, there's the rituals of wrapping coils and the puffs, but there's something about that earthy feel of packing a pipe... 

Sorry, little off topic tangent there. But yeah, good luck finding a good chocolate! Capella's Brownie might work well if mixed in the proper doses with vanilla and cream, I might try that once I get some more VG to work with.

RE: chocolate flavor base
No real help here.. I used to buy chocolate that was really good from vvapour, however, this was a year ago and the juice maker has since left. I can promise good chocolate is out there as a concentrate/blend but I have no idea where.
Yeah, no help..

Don't forget to apply for the freecycle section!

RE: chocolate flavor base
Chocolate is one of those flavours hard to make. Yea I know the others said that.

Flavour companies use malty, nutty and dairy chemicals to similate chocolate. Certainly nothing comes close to a real chocolate. That's why we will find often cocoa extracts in chocolate flavours. Unfortunatelly these extracts burn very easily, they gunk up the wick and coils. Everything will be black after only one tank if there is (tasty) cocoa extract used.

Chocolate, Coffee, Tobacco .... difficult.

RE: chocolate flavor base
Could cocoa beans be extracted the same way tobacco leaves and coffee beans can be? Or would that just end up with a really shitty gunk of oil?

RE: chocolate flavor base
It can be extracted the same way. But I expect the same burning issue.

I am actually a specialist for devoping confectionery, cocoa is one of the things we often have the burning issue. That's why you'll find so many chocolate products which actually have malty tastes.

RE: chocolate flavor base
Chocolate is such a nightmare to pin down. I like Caps Chocolate Fudge Brownie and Dutch Chocolate Mint, but a lot of people hate it too. I hear FA's cocoa and chocolate pair really well together to make a nice chocolate but I haven't tried it.

If you like a creamy chocolate, Inawera's Chocolate Cream is pretty excellent. Needs at least a week, but it's worth it. Not a true 'bar of chocolate' taste though, but for what it is, I can't fault it
