Meringue DIY Flavor Reviews

FA Meringue:
Essential to own. Very authentic. Sugary. Great airy, fluffy feel without being thin. Has crispy outside of meringue. Bit more of a bakery note than others, might be a little AP. A bit toasted. Subtle creaminess. Works great in cereal and milk recipes.
Usually used around 1-2%. DYY tested up to 3%, tasted more cooked and darker. Gets better the longer it steeps, more sugary.
5.26

TFA Meringue:
Similar to FA. Doesn’t have toasted note/AP FA has. Similar airy, crispy sugary-ness. A lot sweeter. Not as authentic. More milky and creamy than FA, which is a harder meringue. So works better than FA in cereal and milk recipes.

Epic Shots Lemon Meringue Pie (One Shot – From Chefs):
Almost perfect. Lemon could be a little more tart. Lovely meringue on top, rich lemon curd. Distinct, but not too prominent, basic bakery crust underneath. Really full flavoured and deep.
ID10-T tested at 13%, which is the recommended %.

WF Flapper Pie:
Delicious, but not particularly accurate. Barely there bakery note. Lovely, accurate meringue, fluffy, a little dry. Not as toasted as FA. Vanilla cream note. Has some dark sweetness.
Sam tested it up to 6%. ID10-T tested up to 3.5%.
18.34

VT Lemon Meringue Tart:
Buttery crust. Lemon more lemon curd than a custard, a bit brighter. Creaminess is very dense and thick. DYY got lime, but to everybody else it’s definitely lemon.
23.13

CAP Lemon Meringue Pie:
Good, well rounded, robust LMP. Very dense, thick cream. Lemon came in afterwards. Not much meringue. Texture too thick for meringue. Inauthentic enough to make it versatile.
ID10-T tested at 3% and 6%. Sam tested at 4%. DYY tested at 3%. A bit burnt at 6%. At 3-4% plenty of flavour, no off notes.
25.52

RF Meringue SC:
Crisp, sugary, dry. Slightly toasted top note with sweet, creamy finish. Has more body than most RF flavours. Not thin. A not unpleasant lingering coconut cream off note.
28.52

CAP Meringue (SL):

Very sweet, creamy. Similar to TFA and FA Meringue in many ways. But has a berry sweetness and tartness. Limits versatility. Seems like it wouldn’t be easy to cover in a mix.
Sam tested at 2%. ID10-T tested at 2.5%. Plenty of flavour. Emily tested at 4%. Didn’t get any off notes.
31.19

Queen of Puddings (One Shot from Chefs):
Moist cake-y type base. Wonderful meringue topping flavour that lingers. Blackcurrant is sharp, but still sweet and jammy. Good level of sweetness.
ID10-T tested at 20%. Chefs recommend using at 20-30%. 20% wasn’t too high. But 30% seems like it would be. Plenty of flavour at 20%.
35.38

FW Lemon Meringue Pie:
CONTAINS SUGAR- CARCINOGENIC. Lemon has nice tartness. But tastes candy-ish. Too bright and thin for a LMP. A bit reminiscent of a frosted Fruit Loops.
43.41

FE Meringue:
Like a better, less waxy version of CAP Butter Cream. Sugary sweet. Slightly artificial butter underneath. Creamy mouthfeel. Tastes like butter and sugar creamed together,
46.43

NF (Nature’s Flavors) Organic Lemon Meringue:
Lemon-y, but no meringue. ID10-T thought it tasted like a sweet lemon cream with lemon zest. DYY thought it had no body, very flat. Like a one dimensional, natural lemon.
DYY tested at 1% and 2%. 2% had plenty of flavour. ID10-T tested at 4%. Too high, harsh.
49.38

RF Lemon Meringue SC:
Meringue is just vague sweet, sugary, fluffy stuff, could be meringue or marshmallow or frosting. Lemon thin, like watered down, powder mix lemonade. No crust.
52.26

CAP Lemon Meringue Pie V2:
Like a lemon graham cracker dipped in old milk. Mostly crust. Kind of graham-y, really heavy. Barely any lemon. Funky spoiled milk off note.
ID10-T tested up to 6%.
53.55

CAP Lemon Meringue Pie V3:
Almost identical to the V2 but even more crust-y. No lemon, no meringue. Just crust with the same spoiled milk note that V2 had. Has some creaminess, but it’s not meringue.
DYY tested at 3%.
