I have fallen behind on a few “seasonal” review products, including these Apple Pie Caramels and Pumpkin Pie Caramels, which I wanted to pick up from Maribis of Springfield on Grandview months ago for a “holiday” review, but Maribis had ran out of stock the day I’d visited. I’d enjoyed reviewing the original Caramels Bedford Grow launched a couple years ago, so during my last trip to Maribis, I finally picked up the new caramel flavors to review.
As a medical patient who eats a ton of edibles to help treat chronic muscle pain and inflammation, I get tired of gummies and chocolates. I figured the Apple Pie and Pumpkin Pie Caramels would be a nice change of pace. The glass containers housed five individually wrapped Caramels. Each piece contained 20mg of THC.
The Apple Pie Caramels delivered that familiar handcrafted caramel aroma with extra notes of apple and cinnamon. The flavor first hit with a slight tart apple before quickly transitioning into a creamy sweet caramel and cinnamon combination. A creamy cinnamon lingered on the aftertaste. The creamy consistency took a few chews before almost dissolving into tasty chewy texture.
The Pumpkin Pie Caramels were slightly darker in color and substituted pumpkin for the apple aromas and flavors that blended with the cinnamon and creamy caramel. The Pumpkin Pie Caramels carried more cinnamon flavor than the Apple Pie Caramels, and the Pumpkin Pie texture was softer and dissolved quicker with fewer chews.
As mentioned in several edible reviews, my standard for flavor is “Would I pick this product off a grocery store rack and eat it as a treat.” The answer to that question for all Bedford Grow Caramels has been yes. I’d have no problem eating these as a non-infused treat.
The onset, as edibles usually do for me, hit relatively fast. Sativa and indica labels on edibles don’t always match the effect “energetic” or “sedative” for me, but all Bedford Grow edibles give me a boost of energy and euphoric feeling that allows me to be productive on many levels. The head high on the caramels was strong but somewhat clearheaded, and the heavy body buzz, which caught up later in the high, relaxed my muscles enough to ease pain and inflammation but not enough to hamper any physical actively. The sedative effects didn’t hit me until late into the buzz, but once at the end, I am usually ready for a good night’s sleep.
Overall, the caramels were what I come to expect from Bedford Grow: reliable dosing, flavors, taste. And as figured, the Apple Pie and Pumpkin Pie Caramels were a good escape from the normal gummies and chocolates. For more Illinois News Joint reviews, visit here.
