Nostalgia has led to many amazing Cannabis infused products, but none can capture the thrill of a weekend morning of cartoons and giggles like the sugary deliciousness of these Strawberry Pot Tarts.
For millennials growing up in the era of mass marketed processed treats, getting Mom or Dad to buy regular Pop Tarts at the grocery store was always a battle. Should you try asking directly? Or sneak the fruity treat into the cart in an act of mischievous rebellion, hoping that if it is noticed, it will come with a sigh and chuckle before getting scanned and paid for? Well guess what? We are now all adults and we can eat what we want, when we want to!
On that note, these amazingly tasty pastry bites are great for breakfast, lunch or a late night snack, so we won’t judge when you eat them. The only real question is to heat, or not to heat – so we tried both. Right out of the package these pastries have a much higher level of quality than traditional Pop Tarts. These look and feel like a pastry from a coffee shop, with a thick construction and lavish amounts of strawberry frosting on the top. First bites at room temp are soft, with a hint of Cannabis that goes wonderfully with the strawberry filling inside – delivering yummy throwback vibes along with a healthy, full spectrum 10mg buzz.
Extremely satisfying and gone in four to five bites, we quickly prepared our second round in our air fryer/toaster oven, which added an extra layer of crispiness and filled our kitchen with the sweet smell of Pot Tarts. When heated up, the frosting, pastry and internal jelly combine for a melt in the mouth bite that’s simply beautiful, leading us to say that this is an edible that we would eat uninfused – which is a rarity in and of itself. Above all, these treats taste like they are made with real ingredients and the type of care that comes from a craft company. Without question, we can’t wait for other flavors of these wildly fun Pot Tarts to hit the market.
