Sometimes you have to indulge in the small pleasures of life, and when the world tells you that they've put you in a category, just go with it. After all, being a basic white B*tch isn't always a bad thing.
Brought out my Lotta Latte and Lucky Shot which makes a GREAT coffee vape, tossed in some Yam and Eggnog for the best dang Pumpkin Spice Latte you could ever want. I can't vape cinnamon so I used the eggnog for the nutmeg. If you can vape cinnamon .25 cinnamon ceylon would seriously kick this up to a better spice level.
After vaping Addy Tuney's pumpkin custard for frames janklin, I thought it would be a great base for an RY4. This strayed far from that inspiration, and turned into a spice cookie.
I like using FLV Yam for a pumpkin, and Cap Gingerbread added the spice that I wanted. CAP Sugar Cookie added sweetness and backed up the bakery note.
Next step was adding the tobacco and cream. Holy Holy Grail RY4 by DIYFS was my first choice for this recipe, as it isn't a strong tobacco, but does a great job adding a creamy caramel with some spice, but it did not give the richness I desired. After trying several cheesecakes, as I did not want to add another cream, I settled on INW Yes, We Cheesecake.
This is not a real sweet recipe, and you might want to add a little sweetener if you have a sweet tooth.
I tested this in both an RDA and in the Zenith MTL tank with 0.8 coil, and I prefer this as a MTL vape.
FLV Yam and Eggnog are the stars of this recipe and they give you a GREAT pumpkin pie filling. Yam tastes JUST like pumpkin puree without added spices from the can. The Vanilla custard makes it richer along with the sweet cream. Graham cracker clear and the sugar cookie are for the sweet crust. Cream Cheese Icing is used here as the sweetener. I've been working on this recipe for three years and feel that I finally got it right! I omitted the cinnamon from my version as I can't vape cinnamon, but I had a friend taste test the version with cinnamon and mine and he feels it's even better with it.
Lotta Latte and Lucky shot on their own make a great caramel latte. The edition of Eggnog and Yam (and yes I know it's a yam but it's a great Pumpkin flavor at .75%) turns this into a great pumpkin spice with a pumpkin you can actually taste. This is super sweet and delicious at 45 watts in a tank, no idea if this will work for an RDA because I don't use them.
I think i did an awesome job cloning this . i liget put one blueprint together and i was like wtf how did i get so close already UPDATE KEEP YAM AT 0.5 % it mellows out after 3 days , give this at least a 3 days steep and a 5 day steep for best results , obviously will get better as time passes . DEEMED FINISHED .
Something so weird and so delicious. This is my version of a commercial profile that I find absolutely disgusting. I knew that I could make the profile delicious.
Candied yams with a smidgen of cinnamon, drizzled in strawberry syrup with a bit of marshmallows and cookie.
I tried a few Yams and they were all mostly nasty with horrible off notes to me. FLV was pretty good but it tasted really raw and starchy but wasn't disgusting and no off notes. I knew that I needed something to warm it up and sort of cook it so using Rich cinnamon used super low achieved that first try. The Capella Sugar Cookie helps it out a bit here as the generic bakery kind of slides under as a base and fill it out. Sugar Cookie may not be the best but it's a phenomenal tool when used to build a bakery base.
I shamelessly stole ID10-T's marshmallow idea from a lucky charms cereal and it fit very well here. FLV Marshmallow and FLV Whipped Cream.
Then I tested strawberries in pairs. About 6 different iterations. RF, TFA Ripe, JF Sweet, INW Shisha, and then Capella released Ripe Strawberries. I was looking for something Ripe and syrupy kind of generic sweet red berry sauce that blended in. Shisha because... yeah... it's straight strawberry syrup. Capella because it brings that fairly authentic sweetened macerated strawberry thing. I love this new flavor.
Balance was the trickiest part once I nailed down the ingredients.. I wanted something slightly separated that started with sweet cooked yams and finished with the berries and nuances to keep you wanting to come back to it. If you mix it up please leave a review if you're a member and able to. If you want to play with subs, the cookie and strawberries leave some wiggle room for tweaking to your favorites. The yam, marshmallow, whipped cream, and rich cinnamon are not able to be substituted. That candied yam base is a thing of beauty.
This is a Dominican recipe, and it smells terrible, but tastes good. It has that marvelous funk that is found in some tropical fruits, but none of the ingredients really stand out. If you don't like the funk, this recipe is not for you. I love that tropical funk and ended up going through my entire 15ml tester in one day. This might be interesting combined with a sweet cream, or condensed milk as is used in the original recipe.
The base of the recipe is the yam, but it is not a dominate flavor.
The top notes are provided by the fruits.
I chose the HS banana because I wanted a green banana to mimic the plantain in the original recipe, rather than a candy banana flavor.
The guava gives that tropical funk.
I wanted cinnamon, but wanted to keep it in the background, so I used CAP cinnamon sugar.
Tropical recipes frequently use sugar cane syrup as a sweetener, so I used VT sugar cane to add additional sweetness.
Here is the original recipe:
I have experimented with this at different wattage, and it seems best around 20 watts in a MTL device, much to my surprise.

Last year about this time, I released my Sweet Potato Pie recipe. In the months following the release, Flavorah released their YAM that is out of this world delicious! Summer is close to an end and Fall will be here very shortly, so I felt it would be the perfect time to release my updated version.
This version builds off of the original but I added and took away a few flavorings for this version. (You can read my notes on the original version here https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/63611#sweet_potato_pie_by_folkart ).
FLV Yam is the star here. It's about as accurate a flavor as I've ever tested. I has a deep yam flavor that is second to none. I also kept the HS Pumpkin Pie but lowered the percentages from the original, just to add a bit of a commercial canned pumpkin/sweet potato aspect to the mix.
The DFS Holy Holy Grail is there for the caramel and vanilla almost giving it a "brown sugar" feel to the mix.
I stayed with the WF Caramel Rice Crispy Treats because to me, it's flavor is that of the soft pumpkin pie crust that is on the bottom of a pumpkin pie. The caramel also adds to the richness of the mix.
CAP Vanilla Custard. A sweet potato pie is in essence a custard, so by adding this flavoring at 1%, it gives it that sweet custard feel, without taking away from the yam and pumpkin.
My original version used CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl, and while it's a great flavoring to use, the cinnamon can be a bit strong. Wayne Walker reviewed my original version and he did like it very much, but he said he would tweak it a bit by reducing the CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl. So I took his advise in this version and used WF Cinnamon Pastry because to me it has a slightly less cinnamon note.
My first few versions did not have FA Cookie but I felt it was needed to bring home the pie crust note. And I think that it has.
One thing that my original lacked, in my opinion, was a buttery note. I have learned that this is a very important note to include in most bakeries. You may ask, "Why FLV Popcorn though?". To me FLV Popcorn is the perfect flavor to add that buttery note. I do use CAP Golden Butter in a lot of my mixes, but it requires a very long steep and sometimes has a plastic note that I can't get past, especially when used at higher percentages.
One other suggestion Wayne Walker made in his review of my original was that the TPA Toasted marshmallow was not really doing much in the mix. So I took his advise and removed the TPA Toasted Marshmallow and with the addition of the CAP Vanilla Custard, I agree that it's not needed.
I added .5% CAP Super Sweet to liven things up a bit, but you can lower or raise this to your liking.
You can most defiantly vape this as a shake and vape, but I would suggest a week steep to let the CAP Vanilla Custard bloom.
I hope you will mix, comment, and or rate, it make us all better mixers. :)
