A slice of homemade apple pie topped with caramel sauce and a dollop of whipped cream. It may not be your grandmas, Five Star American Pie is still worth checking out!
I first found out about Five Star Juice Co. through their presence on social media. Like most companies, they do a fair amount of posting and are always responsive to DMs and comments. In my opinion, their branding is top-notch. Their liquids all look professional, and do not seem to be marketed towards the younger crowd. The flavor descriptions are all easy to read, along with nic content/nic warning, and bottle size. Five Star has some pretty unique names for their liquids, and while I’m not a fan of all of them, they do help their flavors stand out in an increasingly populated e-juice marketplace.
A blend of apples smothered in a soft caramel, served in a traditional pie crust, topped with a sweetened whipped cream. It’s the quintessential American Pie flavor.
Apple berry pie was the first thing that came to mind. Hints of crisp green apples covered in white sugar, with hints of cream and butter on the backend. I’m not sure I’d call it American Pie (what ever that is anyway…), but it’s definitely reminiscent of something that would be served at a corner diner well into the morning hours.
Front – Full on homemade apple pie right out of the gate. A crisp, slightly tart, green apple filling that has been sweetened with a heaping spoonful of white sugar that provides a signature sweet/sour component often associated the dessert. Hints of a heavy cream, brown sugar, and butter really take this one to another level.
Middle – The cream component really shines midway through. For me, it was a mix of light and airy whipped topping, and a cold milk running through the apple filling itself. At this point, I’d compare the vape to a slice of homemade fruit pie, served with a large glass of milk.
End – Some brown sugar notes on the backend, a hint of nutmeg or cinnamon, and a floured crust. The pie shell is not nearly as buttery or spiced as some of the other apple pie flavors I’ve tried in the past, but it is still quite good.
Aftertaste – Some lingering on the backend. But if you’re shopping for an apple pie vape that tastes like the real thing, you kind of need that excess sugar. However, if Five star replaced the caramel sauce in the liquid (which I never really picked up on…) with a bit more spice, the aftertaste would’ve likely not been an issue.
This ones a 70/30 blend. You’ll get a dense flavor throughout the entire vape, but your cloud production will definitely fall short. For thicker clouds – try mixing thinner blends like American Pie with a 5-10% straight VG!

A very tasty apple pie vape. The first thing I’d change? The caramel! The sauce came through as more of an additional sweetener than an actual caramel component, and the aftertaste suffered because of it. A boost in spice could’ve taken this liquid to another level.
Then there’s the name: American Pie. American Pie does nothing for me honestly. If anything, it’s just a huge over-generalization. If you’re idea of a American Pie includes apples, fine – but if it doesn’t, well you get my point… Why not just call it what it is?
Recommendable? Yes. Not the best apple pie vape I’ve ever had, but still quite good.
ADV? Probably not. I have a few ‘go-to’ apple pie flavors that I’d choose before this one.
