These were the inspiration for this recipe. I always have to beg the lady at the Chinese restaurant for a handful of these every time I go. If you haven’t had them, they’re basically just a sweet, almost sour guava candy.
If you guys know me, you know literally 90% of my recipes have some sort of cream in them. I wanted to branch out and make a unique candy flavor this time, and I think I’ve nailed that down pretty well here.
FLV Pink Guava was my first choice for the base note. It’s a super strong flavor, resembling grapefruit if used above 1%. I wanted to keep this flavor at a low percentage and just build other flavors around it.
I thought lime might be an interesting addition, and I’ve been loving INW
Lime for any sort of lime hint in a recipe. It tends to overpower a mix even at .5%, so I stuck with .25% for just that hint that I wanted.
CAP Lemon Lime is just used to boost the citrus flavors. It’s a pretty light flavor, and 4% seemed to be right where I wanted it.
INW Dragonfruit helps add uniqueness and boost the tropical flavor a bit.
INW Cactus for juiciness.
FA Fuji for a little more brightness.
If I had to describe this in one word, it would probably be “green”.
