Mindy’s milk chocolate peanut butter brittle bar is packaged in an attractive, purple-hued box. Honestly, that’s the main reason why I bought it. The price was reasonable ($18), and the box was cute. Needless to say, they won me over instantly.
The Mindy’s bar looks scrumptious, as though it were hand-crafted by a celebrated pastry chef. The square chocolate base is covered with peanut butter and nuts. A light caramel coating is drizzled on top, as well. If the bar were sold at a fancy bakery on the Strip, people would happily fork over $18 for a version without THC.
It smells exactly how a bakery goodie should. The rich, chocolatey aroma fills the room after you open the package. Discerning noses will be able to tease out whiffs of caramel and peanut butter upon each enjoyable sniff.
Every bite fills your mouth with the taste of chocolate and nuts. The THC flavor is noticeable as an aftertaste, too. After you swallow, a filmy, chocolatey glaze remains on your tongue. The bar is an “edible” because the packaging lets you know that it’s infused. Without that THC incentive, no one would ever eat this over a plain Hershey bar. No way!
The entire chocolate bar has 50-mg of THC within it. Technically, you can break it up into five 10-mg squares, but I don’t see a lot of people bothering to do that. The bar is tiny, to be honest. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw that it was 300 calories. If you were dedicated, you could probably swallow the whole thing in one gulp.

You’ll feel this edible in your bones.
Edibles are for people who desire a deep, physical reaction to cannabis. You may get a bit of a head high, as well, but the effects of this chocolate bar really shine in your body. Any dull, achy feelings that you may have been dealing with are softened, thanks to this THC treat.
Mindy’s milk chocolate peanut brittle bar is...okay.
The oozy, melty chocolate satisfies my inner “caveperson” screaming for fat and sugar, while the THC blasts your senses to an outer realm. However, this is Vegas, and the edible market is stiff with competition. There are much better infused chocolate bars out there, that’s for sure.

Las Vegas needs legal smoking lounges. Walking into Acres, soaking in the stoner-centric vibe, and NOT sparking up, feels like a crime. Every inch of dispensary space is used to gratify your eye or intrigue your other senses.
You’re drawn to Acres way before stepping foot onto the property. Located in a busy tourist sprawl off of Industrial road, the dispensary looks like a giant artist’s warehouse. The squat black building is gilded with colorful murals. Swirling patterns capture the eye.
Inside, the dispensary splits into two main parts. To the right, there’s a small reception area and main showroom. To the left, you’ll find a winding staircase that leads to the Underground, a wholesale cannabis market that springs up every weekend.
This time, I headed straight to the main dispensary. I went early Sunday morning, while the rest of the city’s stoners were still in bed. The place was empty. Score! I could monopolize the budtender’s attention, without feeling guilty. I was looking for something tasty and potent. I didn’t want to splash out a bunch of money on lackluster buds, either. So, my search was specific.
Acres budtenders have a professional aura happy and chill demeanor. You don’t want your budtender to be TOO relaxed, though, because they might forget what they’re doing. A good budtender interaction is 2-minutes, not 20.
My budtender carefully explained their menu, focusing on new and unusual products that would appeal to a seasoned smoker, such as myself. I probably could’ve spent my entire paycheck on this one visit, but Acres no longer accepts debit cards. There’s an ATM in the lobby, however, if you don’t mind rapacious bank fees.
