The first time I tried one of these was when I was ready to wind down at home after a stressful afternoon. I was hoping for something to take the edge off so that I could relax for a while before going to bed. About 30-45 minutes after eating one piece, I was feeling relaxed, but ended up getting too relaxed. I fell asleep for a full 3 hours! I wasn’t necessarily looking to nap, but it definitely calmed me down.
It might be a good idea to start with just half of a piece when trying these, which is tough when they taste so good. If you’re a fan of chocolate covered peppermint patties, these taste just like the candy. Of course, with the full 5 mg dose being in just one pattie, it’s not really about the taste. Overall, these taste great, have a strong effect, and are a pretty decent value!
