The mad scientists at erb are ready to launch an edible product unlike any on the Oregon market.
We’ve chomped chocolate bars, slurped sodas and eaten gummies by the handful – but we rarely clock a new munchie that has us wondering how the hell they came up with such a delight.This new product from erb boggled our minds in such a fashion that we had to track down the origins of this unique treat.
Not surprisingly, the answer is space. Or rather, an otherworldly mission with dope DJs, intergalactic archaeologists and a group of stoner engineers. Or so goes the creation story around erb’s newest edible: The Space Puff. Admittedly, these light-as-air puffs need a little introduction, and leaning into the Saturday morning fun we had as kids is the right kind of storytelling to get a little buy-in from a dispensary visitor with options.
The texture is a cross between a puffed cereal piece and a mouthful of cotton candy. At first glance, I expected these 3mg pieces to crumble into a million bits like similar candies I’ve encountered. Thankfully, each piece stayed intact. Pop one in your mouth and choose your own adventure … let the puff melt in your mouth or crunch down for a crispy bite or two before it all dissolves into a cloud of flavor.
In this case, that’s a cloud of pistachio. Next, it could be cranberry-watermelon. After three years of R&D and an award or two, Space Puffs are ready for their official debut and erb plans to drop a new flavor each month for the foreseeable future. Just ask your budtender if they put the Space Puffs near the chocolate bars or with the gummies – or hey, maybe an edible this unique deserves a space all to itself.
