I had the great good luck to see where these are made when I toured and reviewed Honu in Longview, WA. They're great folks, and this big bag of peanut butter cups are a great way to have a huge volume of edible marijuana - when a single 10mg dose averages about 10-12 bucks, getting 100mg for just $45 is awesome.
First of all, these little treats have a heft to them. They're definitely dense. It took a knife to get the mylar open without wrecking the peanut-butter cup. I smooshed one trying to open it with my teeth - that's what I get for trying that.
The chocolate outer layer is smooth and holds up well to touch and interaction. This chocolate has a firmness to the bite. When I bit through to the smooth, delicate inner peanut butter layer, I instantly got a slight 'tang' - the flavor of the delicious closed loop butane extracted concentrate used to make these. It's not overwhelming, but it definitely has presence. I happen to like this flavor aspect of edibles.
With a whipped texture, the peanut butter spreads out smooth from the first bite. It's got a delicate mouthfeel. The slightly oiliness of the concentrate used spreads along with the earthy, premium peanut flavor. It's not unpleasant, at all.
I like to melt chocolate in my mouth for a moment and that firmness held up. It lasted a bit before melting down. All the while, the smooth delicious peanut butter mixed perfectly in.
The mouthfeel on this lasted a long time, along with a perfectly balanced aftertaste. I ate at least two of these delicious treats each time I had them. They fulfill a sweet tooth, for sure!
Of all the edibles I have eaten, these had the most time delayed onset of effects - this was true on two of three times I enjoyed them.
After quite a while, I suddenly felt a serious euphoria that came through intermittently. My head swam and my sense of position in the universe seemed vague. I wasn't sure quite where I was or when. These were intense explosions of euphoria, that soon mellowed out. It came in strong waves.
Also coming through in waves was a decent body high. Sensations of floating lead to calm relaxation and muscle looseness. This was more pronounced during the euphoric moments, but stayed pretty much constant throughout the high.
Overall, I love these treats and they had solid effects.. My wife picked them out, and I ate nearly all of them. Honestly, I usually consume virtually all of the legal recreational marijuana we buy - whether sweets, treats, or flower. It's a good thing my wife is understanding!
