RADsicles should be the perfect summer treat for stoners.

The concept of a cannabis-infused freezie is a lot of fun, especially for someone like me who ate many a Mr. Freeze when I was a kid.

I just can’t get past the taste—it’s terribly bitter.

I tried the Blue Raspberry flavour. While there is a hint of the blue freezie taste from back in the day, it’s completely overshadowed by the bitterness of cannabis distillate from the 10mg of THC. The plain sugary sweetness barely even makes it through.

As the freezie melts, the liquid has an odd milkiness to it.

On the plus side, there is a surprisingly little amount of sugar inside at 11 grams, and the freezie texture itself is also on point.

Overall though, this was not an enjoyable experience.

They also come in cherry, cream soda, and grape flavours.

Sadly, cannabis freezies may be a thing of the past anyway, as there is a report Health Canada is now rejecting the format as too alluring to children.
