Look for Pot-Rox at these dispensaries:

Pop Rocks® were the ultimate kid’s treat in the 1970s. Small pieces of buzzy candy were “gasified” with carbon dioxide to create a popping sensation once they hit your mouth. Pot-Rox captures this popping sensation perfectly—with the added bonus of 10mg of CO2 cannabis extract in every pouch. The flavors include Pop Rocks classics like Sour Apple and Sour Grape at around $5 a pack.

Look for CannaPunch at these dispensaries:

Hey Kool-Aid! Remember when your mom mixed up a huge batch of Kool-Aid and you downed it in less than a day? There was something about those bright colors and sweet sugar that kept you coming back for more. CannaPunch makes a cannabis-infused drink that tastes just like Kool-Aid. The 100mg THC drinks come in favorite flavors like red (Black Cherry Fusion), blue (Blue Raspberry Sour), and purple (Granddaddy Grape). Even better? CannaPunch is 100% organic and free of gluten, soy, and corn syrup, making it a guilt-free remix of this childhood favorite at $24 a bottle.

Strawberry Shortcake Bar

Look for Strawberry Shortcake Bars at these dispensaries:

If you were born in America, you probably remember the siren song of Good Humor Ice Cream trucks. As soon as you heard it, you’d beg some change from your mom, run outside, and line up to buy your favorite treat. NectarBee has recreated my personal ice-cream-truck favorite (and did it so well it’s almost uncanny). The Strawberry Shortcake Bar tastes exactly like the Good Humor version—without the ice cream. And at only $6.95 for four 10mg treats, the price will remind you of the good old days, too.

Pop Star Caramel Corn

Look for Pop Star Caramel Corn at these dispensaries:

Remember Cracker Jacks? Pop Star Caramel Corn is like Cracker Jacks, but re-invented for the discerning adult. The only thing missing from this crunchy, sweet, candied popcorn is the toy surprise. Pop Star Caramel Corn is available in single-serving, 10mg THC packages that range between $5—$7. Medical patients may buy a 150mg version.

Lemon Drops

Look for EdiPure Lemon Drops in these dispensaries:

Did your grandfather keep a supply of lemon drops in his pocket? Did he slip you a few before dinner when your parents weren’t looking? Grandfathers can be pretty cool like that. EdiPure Lemon Drops taste just like your grandpa’s did, with the addition of 10mg of THC each. These tart candies cost around $15 for a pack of ten.

Sweet Grass Kitchen Buttermelts

Look for Sweet Grass Kitchen Buttermelts at these dispensaries:

If your grandfather kept lemon drops in his pocket, it’s likely that your grandmother kept a dish of buttermints on the coffee table. Maybe you even stole a couple of these sweet, melt-in-your-mouth mints for an in-between-meals snack. Sweet Grass Kitchen recreates these treats using full-flower cannabutter. Each mint contains a 2.5mg of active THC. The Buttermelts come in flavors like Mojito Mint and Moscow Mule.
