The season for tricks and treats is here, but the only thing spooky about the new MeltAway candy line is how quickly they disappear from the box.
Halloween brings out the kid in all of us … and it’s truly a holiday that can be heightened with the proper dose of Cannabis. From carving pumpkins to dressing up in cosplay with your co-workers (or more generally, people you don’t like but feel obligated to hang out with), every part of the celebration of All Hallows’ Eve is better with weed. It’s also a time where smoking or vaping might cause problems – especially when taking little ones trick-or-treating – which makes an infused candy clutch for getting baked discreetly.
Verdelux is known for making delicious edibles and helpful topicals (afterall, it’s also dry hands season), and when we heard about their new MeltAway lineup we couldn’t wait to put them to the test. We started with the Peanut Butter, which beckoned to us in a perfectly-round bite. Sinking our vampiric weed-hungry teeth into the outside felt like the whole edible was the inside of a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, blending classic flavors to the palate’s delight. These MeltAways are creamier and have a super satisfying mouthfeel that lives up to its name … disappearing quickly and leaving our tummies rumbling for another bite.
Next we tried the Carmelo version, which is a hard product to create and infuse properly. We found the light chocolate layer over a slightly chewy (but not sticky) caramel to have the perfect combination of sweetness and a tang of salty brown sugar – and after a quick bite and chew, found it melted away like its namesake. Truly one of the best caramels we’ve ever tasted, this writer would happily eat both products uninfused (the true test for a top shelf edible). We recommend stocking up on these yummy bites and getting melty for the month of October. And if you really want to be the life of the party, fill up your adult pumpkin with the new MeltAways by Verdelux for a highly-tasty Halloween.
