Holy Moly-O’s – Junk by Leif Goods

from Leif Goods

Holy Moly-O's by Leif Goods bring dairy-free deliciousness to Oregon's edible cookie scene.

Holy moly is right! These finely crafted cookies from Leif Goods are some of the more well-rounded edibles currently on the market, with their full-spectrum, perfectly tempered chocolate accents and full-bodied textures. Reminiscent of a certain, very popular black and white cookie that almost everybody knows, the interior cookie in this treat has the right amount of textured crunch to balance its sweet, fluffy cream filling. As if it couldn’t get any better, Junk coats the entire cookie in infused dark chocolate and tops it with sprinkles. 

Packaged in Junk’s iconic colorful and metallic boxes, each container of Holy Moly-O’s comes with two cookies that have 25mg of THC each, using full-spectrum Cannabis oil and Fair Trade CertifiedTM chocolates. Though they have that nostalgically full and rich taste, these little cookies are dairy-free – so almost anyone can enjoy these tasty treats! They’re portioned into 25mg of THC per cookie that you’re technically supposed to dose into five small bits each. As I’m sure you can assume, I ate one 25mg cookie to see what the whole deal was about. Within the hour I had that familiar realization that, although I felt high, I couldn’t remember the last time I had smoked – so the cookie was most certainly working.

That single Holy Moly-Os melted my anxiety and left me feeling more mellow than ever, so much so that I took a little nap on the couch in the middle of the afternoon – something I don’t normally do. The use of full-spectrum oil versus distillate creates a noticeable difference, giving a more well-rounded and full-bodied experience compared to the typical ‘flat’ high that inherently comes with distillate-based consumables. Instead of just making me sleepy, I felt calm and creative, ready to go explore downtown Portland’s dinner scene that day.

The fact that these cookies are so effective while maintaining their texture and consistency makes them fall in line with all of Junk’s other products on the market. Junk is notorious for their use of high quality ingredients and attention to detail, something other companies simply don’t appreciate as much as they should. Under the umbrella company Leif Goods, Junk sets the tone for consciously fun adult snacks that feature ethical sourcing wrapped in convivial packaging. This woman-owned company always impresses me with each new product they put on the shelves and I cannot wait to see what they come up with next. Until then, you can find me snacking on these nonstop.
