So, you’ve just began your DIY vaping adventure and you’re ready to try out a candy flavor. Now, as we all know, candy flavors are supposed to be sweeter than other flavors. After all, candies are naturally made mainly with sugar. But, just how sweet should your candy flavor be?
If you wanna tackle the world of candy-flavored e-liquids, this guide is for you. We’ll be breaking down the ways in which you should sweeten that flavor so that you get the most satisfaction. After all, DIY vaping is all about balance, isn’t it?
How Sweet it Could Be
When it comes to making a candy-flavored vape juice, it’s important to know how much sweetener to add. The truth is that not enough sweetener will make your candy flavor taste like anything but. Alternatively, too much sweetener can actually be quite unpleasant.
In fact, too much sweetener can lead to vaper’s tongue because your palate just can’t handle that sugar overload. When this occurs, you won’t be able to taste your e-liquid’s flavor at all. And, who wants that?
How to Add Sweetener to Your Candy-Flavored E-Juice Batches
When making any vape juice from scratch, it’s always best to add a little bit of sweetener at a time and test the flavor as you go. While this may sound tedious, it’s totally worth it. After all, think about it: do you really want to go through all of the trouble of making a batch of e-liquid, only to throw it out because you added too much sweetener?
By adding a little bit at a time, you’ll be able to stop as soon as the sweetness level is just right. The fact is that once there’s too much in there, you can’t take it out, which means that you’ve essentially just wasted money and vape juice.
How to Balance Out Sweetness for a More Complex Taste
Different types of candy flavors require different levels of sweetness. Let’s say that you’re making a sour blue raspberry flavor. Because of all that sourness, you’ll need more sweetness than you usually do in order to balance things out. However, if you’re making, say, a red apple candy flavor, you’ll probably need less sweetness since red apples are naturally pretty sweet on their own. So, consider the other flavoring extracts when deciding how much sweetener to use.
Remember that the quality of your sweetener is important. Cheap sweetener tends to be overwhelming to the taste buds, meaning that just a little bit can be quite unpleasant. With a high-quality sweetener, you’ll need to add a little more because it’s made with authentic ingredients.
Your Device Matters
The vaping device that you’re using can affect how sweet your DIY candy flavor should be. If you’re using a DL device like a sub-ohm box mod setup, you’ll probably want a little more sweetness because this type of vaping style subdues the flavor experience a bit. If you’re using an MTL device like a pod system, you’ll probably be able to get away with a little less sweetener.
Personal Preference is Key
Don’t forget that sweetness comes down to personal preference. If you just happen to like your candy flavors extremely sweet, there’s no rule saying that you can’t add a bit extra. And, if you’re not a fan of incredibly sugary confections, you’re free to tone it down according to your own palate’s needs.
DIY Sweetness is king, But…
Just how much sweetener you use is really up to you. This guide will ensure that you add the perfect amount of sweetener for your vaping needs.
