This is a spin off the sandwich Elvis made famous that of which the 2 main ingredients are banana and peanut butter. i also am using inw wonder waffle for the carb base. tpa banana fosters is a nice syrupy one part top note joining dx peanut butter iread somewhere that he used to sometimes add strawberry and i thought that was a solid idea also. i then took liberty with a touch of almond to help glue it all together. this is a first shot in the dark i will buld from it. ok i just noticed that inw wonder waffle isnt on here at all the flavors so in its plac i used inw biscuit at 2% but its really made with inw wonder waffle 2%

Home made vanilla Ice cream with strawberry swirls is what I'll call this mix. The rose enhances the strawberries in a very nice and sweet way. It brings a certain airiness to the recipe. FA Red Touch combined with TFA Strawberry is one of my favorite strawberry blends when I'm not looking for a candy strawberry. Rose in this recipe is very delicate and not floral. I considered bumping the rose but chose against if because while it may have added additional floral notes it also can add a pungent green stem note if used too high.
I Used almond to enhance my vanilla notes because I tend to be vanilla blind unless I enhance with either coconut or with almond. FA Creme fresh to add the homemade aspect of the recipe, FLV Custard (not to be mistaken with their Vanilla Custard) is a very nice smooth cream the Vanilla swirl adds the vanilla notes I was looking for and the silky ice cream texture.

additives :
WS23 - because Ice cream is supposed to be cold or its just cream but feel free to omit it if you don't like cold creams.

Sweetener : Just because I like it a little sweeter than the flavors I chose provide

Crafted specifically to compliment an old evening ritual of mine, I use to be quite the pipe tobacco connoisseur in my day and, rightly or wrongly, I think back very fondly of rolling my own cigarettes using various tobacco blends in the evening and puffing away at it with my evening cup of coffee. My Fruity ADVs just don't have the same effect, so I set out to create a tobacco recipe that encompasses all the notes I use to love in my real tobaccos... Rums, almonds, vanilla, and caramels/butterscotches.

Instead of trying to mimic that I decided to switch things up a bit and bring said notes to the foreground and leave the tobacco as the accent.

FW Butterscotch Ripple. This is a sharp, yet rich butterscotch with lovely dark sugar caramel tones that begs to be paired with a tobacco. I wanted this to be the main profile but not overpowering, I paired it up pretty high with the RY4 Double but I knew it had to bump it a bit to make sure it stands out from the crowd.

RY4 Double: This is my favourite tobacco. it really is just a nice and sweet tobacco with more yummie rich maple and caramel notes to complement the FA Butterscotch and I think at 1.5% it is perfect to ensure that the tobacco is sufficiently present.

FA Jamaica Special:Rum and maple has always been one of my favorite blends and was almost a natural choice here. it sits in perfect harmony alongside the tobacco.

TFA Almond: the almond, may seem high here, but fills out the tobacco beautifully and helps bridge the rum, tobacco and butterscotch with the cream base

TFA Sweet Cream: Now the idea here was to pair this with my evening cup of coffee (White and Sweet), so sweet cream seemed like a great way to have my vape compliment my coffee while helping the other flavors stand up to the coffee taste. (i discovered that by chance with a previous tobacco recipe)

French Vanilla: I chose Vanillin initially but it the vanilla was just present throughout the entire vape and with everything going on it was too much. I needed the vanilla to have a place in the recipe. I really have no opinion of which is the best vanilla to use, so I chanced it with this one and it turned good. the vanilla sit light and fluffy on top of the cream and gives all the main flavors the stage and then shines alongside the cream on the tail of the vape.

Vanilla custard: the original recipe just did not have enough body I added vanilla custard purely out of frustration, I started off with 1% but after a two week steep it still did not have the body I was looking for, so I added another 0.5 and the results we great! it really also doesn't feature prominently in the flavor profile, it really is just complimenting the flavors already in the recipe. gives a nice buttery eggy-ness to the sweet cream, bumps the french vanilla in all the right places and almost makes you want to chew your vape before you swallow it. I find it hard to decide if this is distracting from the recipe or not.

After a four week steep, I simply can't put it down and I have compliments from everyone who tried it. I just still think I have too much going in here
