Tasty Selections Zkittlez Cannabis Cultivar (Strain) Review
ASH APPEARANCE: 7.5/10
OVERALL SMOKE: 9.2/10
Having enjoyed all of the flowers from Tasty Selections so far, I was excited to try the third instalment, already being a great strain in its own right; the infamous Zkittles. Upon opening I instantly received an extremely sweet infusion of red grapes and cherries infused with a light grapefruit and unusual but pleasant gassy backend. This distinctive sweetness was complemented perfectly by slight fizzy cream and floral undertones, ultimately delivering an inviting candy Zkittles aroma. The buds were of a medium density, having a typical messy Zkittles structure, being a shade of golden light green, alongside orange messy pistils, covered by a universe of trichomes. Upon inhaling, my palate was instantly overcome by an uncommon but interesting gas with great depth, exhibiting traits of caramelised onions, and a slight soapy grease. This unusual but pleasant gas was complemented perfectly by the anticipated notes of Zkittles, displaying a sweet floral infusion of cream, cherries and grapes, accompanied by a light grapefruit backend. This equal blend of sweetened gas is retained on my tastebuds upon exhaling. The joint produced ash being a shade of medium silver, alongside an instantaneous leaking and oozing resinous oil ring, smoking both smooth and tasting clean. To conclude, despite Tasty’s Zkittles having a slightly darker than desirable shade of ash, this suprisingly did not affect the quality of smoke in the slightest, and resulted in being a great, unique tasting Zkittles, introducing a rare, distinctive gas with hints of onions and detergent working in harmony with the common sweet, floral and creamy traits of Zkittles. With Tasty Selection’s Zkittles already securing a high rank in the market, with minimal dialling in, can easily be pushed even higher.
