Get Your Dinner Lady Fix With Phix
We serve nostalgia in a bottle. That is the company motto of UK based e-juice powerhouse Dinner Lady. Based on the popularity of their e-juices, it appears that a blast from the past is exactly what thousands of vapers demand. And for the first time, Dinner Lady’s most popular flavor is available in a convenient nic salt pod, in the form of the Lemon Tart Dinner Lady Phix pod.
A US company probably couldn’t get away with the name “Lunch Lady”, the US equivalent to a dinner lady, due to the hysteria surrounding the “teen vaping epidemic”. But the success of Dinner Lady in the US market is proof that their flavor formulations resonate with Americans, even if their name probably went over like a lead balloon at the FDA offices. Let’s hope Scott Gottleib does not have a handbook of British idioms, or at least realizes that marketing nostalgia to adults is incompatible with marketing to minors.
Dinner Lady Phix Pods
Dinner Lady e-juices, especially their trademark Lemon Tart, have won numerous awards and are held in high esteem by vaping gourmands. But it appears that bottles are no longer the only receptacle for nostalgia. Working in collaboration with Phix Vape, they are now serving their trademark Lemon Tart in a punchy nic salt pod as well. Classic, time tested flavors meeting a new age delivery system.
Lemon Tart E-Juice
For anyone unfamiliar with Dinner Lady Lemon Tart, it is a creamy and tangy lemon curd e-juice. With sugary top notes and a hint of airy crust, it balances tart and sweet. The citrusy, lemony freshness makes all day enjoyment easy, but it is sweet and smooth enough to appeal to the dessert juice crowd. This sophisticated e-juice is about as far removed from a cloying, pre-packaged cafeteria dessert as possible. It has an upscale, refined taste. I like to imagine that English baking legend Mary Berry, rather than a workaday English dinner lady, formulated this Lemon Tart e-juice.
Lemon Tart Nic Salt Pod
So how does the Dinner Lady Lemon Tart pod stack up to their flagship e-juice? The first order of business is that the flavor has to match the popular e-juice. A quick puff reveals that the Phix Dinner Lady Lemon Tart shares pod most of its DNA with its 70vg/30 pg cousin. The flavor that you know and love is there. It also packs the nic salt throat burn. Like its namesake dessert and pods in general, it is probably best enjoyed in moderation.
Unlike the e-juice, the pod hits you with a nic level of 5 (50mg) percent. This is typical of nic salt e-juices and is large part of their appeal. You probably won’t be blowing endless stratocumulus clouds from a Dinner Lady nic salt pod, unless you just ditched a very heavy smoking habit. The Phix device and Lemon Tart pod are perfect for discrete and timely drags.
Nic salts certainly have a place in the vaping universe, but the vape pods provide a fundamentally different experience than Dinner Lady’s classic cloud optimized juices, which max out at a nic level of 0.6 percent. If you prefer the nic salt and pod experience, you will love the Dinner Lady/Phix pod combo.
Phix Vape Kit
The Phix Vape Kit has much to recommend. With a 280 mAh battery and pods that hold 1.5 ml of e-liquid, the Phix is slightly larger than its Bo Vape and Juul rivals. It still has sports a sleek design and easily fits in your pocket. Ergonomically, the use of magnets makes it very practical and user friendly. The pods and charger snap into place with authority. Using 1.5 ohm coils, these coils provide super taste and long life.
This pod really captures the gorgeous Dinner Lady’s flavor and it may be worth considering a jump to the Phix bandwagon. If you currently use a mod and regular e-liquids and are looking to dip your toe in the pod scene, Lemon Tart is more than just a familiar face. It is one of the best tasting pods out there and retains the essential flavor of the traditional e-liquid with a nic salt hit.
