Please read he’s notes on the choice of butter as I prefer the TFA Butter
Strawberry Jam w/ Toast
Golden Butter/ Butter
I have a sweet tooth so upped the sweetener to 1%
RF Strawberry Jam w/ Toast: This is the flavor that pulls the entire recipe together. It’s not the ONLY flavor, something many previously thought, but its certainly the most important. It’s quite potent so I had to use a concentration of 2% to make sure that toast note didn’t completely override the others. 2% is just the right amount as it sits nicely in the mix, and lends all its flavors to the other ingredients. If you do not have this ingredient, you CAN NOT make Jam Monster.
RF Strawberry (SC) / CAP Sweet Strawberry: Now this combination of strawberry is what I put together to get as close as I could to the strawberry flavor I taste in the original. My first iterations of this remix I used TFA Cranberry to try and get that jammy deep red flavor I taste in Jam. But it just so happens to be that RF Strawberry is the perfect note to do that. And then I use CAP Sweet Strawberry to help brighten it up and move that strawberry towards the front creating more of a commercial flavor. Both flavorings I used at 3%, where anything lower, the toast in RF Strawb w/ Toast becomes too apparent.
CAP Golden Butter: The last note is the butter. While I think that Jam Monster is using TFA Butter, I’m using CAP Golden Butter because I think it just carries a bit more of a subtle flavor. I don’t really enjoy the “oily” nature of Jam Monster, but if you do, just replace with TFA Butter and use at the same percentage. That percentage being 2%. Here, the butter is present and helps soothe the strawberry notes, but isn’t cloying or too oily.
CAP Super Sweet: This is a necessary ingredient in the mix if you want your version to taste exactly like the original. If you DON’T like how sweet the original is, you can leave it out or use only a drop or so. But the sweetener really just makes the mix extremely vibrant and help kill any of the off flavors you might get from the Toast flavoring.
