Dinner Lady is an English brand, and yet some of our italian reviewers, very superficially, forgive me but it must be said, claimed to be made in the US with a seat in the UK as well. I said an English that has gaining a good appreciation on the international vaping scene. We are therefore happy to talk about this brand starting from today.
The packaging of Dinner Lady products is in my opinion absolutely fantastic. In a vintage pop style, the British producer has recreated a typical box of matches with a design and a clear impacting graphics, studied in detail. Inside the box there are three 10 ml colored PET bottles (each color identifies an e-liquid taste) quite soft and pleasing to the touch (perhaps PE?) with a very detailed instruction sheet for use in 8 languages. It seems superfluous to tell you that Dinner Lady products are absolutely TPD compliant. A superb inventive example of how to transform a limiting aspect imposed on packaging by the new European legislation, into something beautiful and also very practical. In fact, it will not be unpleasant for the vapers to carry out around this kind of packaging to always have a good supply of liquid.

Today we review for you Cornflake Tart:
For a true taste of the old school what about our Cornflake Tart, a traditional but delectable mix of syrup with a punchy layer of jam – everything but the crunch!
On the smell a sweet but penetrating strawberry fragrance emerges on a soft pastry bed in a discreet and inviting aromatic framework. Among the short pastry notes, there are more dry grains of cereal that appear to mitigate the roundness of the whole mix. Are you ready for the vape proof?
I then proceed with my test, after appropriately preparing a VTinbox bottom feeder with the valid Hadaly RDA. After a few short and timid attempts around the 50 watts, I realized that Cornflake Tart should be vape (in my opinion) with powers not exceeding 38-40 watts, as long as there is an excessive loss of roundness. I testify on 38 watts and then start with the first big puffs. I notice that the liquid does not look very sweet indeed … In a clean and compact frame, inspiration comes from corn notes that are good enough to remember a cornflake, but they seem to deviate towards hints of popcorn, revealing in this sense the use of a good amount of acetyl pyrazine. Even the heart of the sleepwalker confirms the little fat sensation perceived by the first puffs. The short pastry has a distinctive “crust” flavor, well-known among DIY experts, on which rest the other ingredients of the mix. Tarts and cereals together give a good dryness to the whole preparation by projecting it into a size that is certainly not stuccoing and tiring but also a little too sharp to envy the first shot. The arrival of light strawberry accents adds a minimum of sweetness to the e-juice and, on the other hand, a slight acidity, for the same characteristics of the strawberry. In my opinion there’s not the soft feel of a strawberry jam that would round off the whole creation more than that.
After some more puffs, you become accustomed to the simple and straightforward features of Cornflake Tart and you realize that the non-excessive sweetness of the mix brings with it a big advantage in terms of redundancy. The e-liquid so conceived while not crying at the aromatic miracle infuses safety in the wax, can accompany a vaper for a long time throughout a day without ever boring or stunning with aromatic abuses of all sorts. The same little aromatic persistence helps to keep the palate clean. It is a valuable factor to emphasize.
A well-made and good e-juice, which I imagine may be well received by most of the vapers although its approach to a cornflake tart with a strawberry jam is perhaps somewhat ambitious.
Pro: A clean e-juice, suitable for an all-day vape.
Cons: The degree of loyalty to a cornflake tart with strawberry jam is just enough.
