When I sit down after a hard day’s work and want to relax with an icy cold beer, I’m not looking to get hammered. As I savor and relish every last frothy drop, the slight tingling behind my eyes and the increased likelihood of me saying something stupid is just an added benefit of the alcohol content in my brew. The point of this is, if you’re going to enjoy some marijuana or marijuana edibles, why not love the flavor in the process? after all, you don’t go to a liquor store, head straight for the Bacardi 151 and say, “I’m getting this because it’s going to mess me up!” (Well I at least hope you don’t). There is something to be said about the experience. like the old aphorism says, it’s the journey, not the destination. That being said, If you’ve never encountered a marijuana edible before, or if you’re simply in the market for a marijuana edible that’s better tasting and looking than any non-medicated chocolate you’ve ever had in your life, then let me tell you a little story about Coda Signature Truffles. Coda Signature Truffles are not only the fanciest marijuana edible I’ve ever had in my life, but also the most beautiful things that I’ve ever destroyed. Each bite into these sinfully amazing truffles is like knifing a Rembrandt, except I didn’t go to jail, and it got me high. If you are looking for a first edible to try, or just want to experience the very best edibles Colorado has to offer, then you need to check out Coda Signature Truffles!
I found my Coda Signature Truffles at Emerald Fields, a recreational marijuana dispensary in Manitou Springs, Colorado. Emerald Fields is more than just a great recreational dispensary, it’s also the only source for recreational marijuana in Colorado Springs.

Emerald Fields the best option for recreational cannabis for miles. It offers an unrivaled selection of flower, marijuana concentrates, and, of course, edibles, like Coda Signature Truffles. Coda Truffles are also now available at Emerald Fields in Glendale, Colorado. Glendale. Emerald fields is unique in the fact that it’s permitted to stay open until midnight, seven days a week.

Coda Signature Truffles
Not only are these designer truffles the prettiest marijuana edible on the shelf, but they also have quite the feather in their cap, having won the first-place best edible in the 2016 High Times Colorado Cannabis Cup. It’s no surprise to me since I’ve been a big fan of these tasty little buggers since they first hit the shelves. I’ll try to do the flavors justice in my description, but I know words will hardly seem fitting to describe just how amazing these confections are. I’ll put it succinctly, if they had non-medicated versions of these truffles, I would be a very, very fat man.
Coda Signature Truffle Flavors
There are two sets of Coda Signature Truffles to choose from and both have their advantages. The Crescendo Collection and the Forte Collection. Each collection of truffles includes six ten-milligram chocolates, in three different flavors. The Crescendo contains Burnt Caramel, Earl Grey, and Juniper Lemon, while the Forte is filled with Hazelnut, Passion, and Tiramisu. I’ll start at the top, and try to describe to you just how amazing these truffles are.
With shades of orange and red dancing across its perfectly smooth chocolatey surface, the Burnt Caramel Coda Truffle looks a little bit like Jupiter sliced in half. The artful dashes of blue crisscrossing the surface bring a little extra character into the mix. The flavor is simply amazing. The caramel is extremely dark tasting and does bear a hint of smokiness, as promised by the name. The real highlight to the caramel flavor, however, comes from the hint of salt added to the candy. If you’re a fan of Caramel, this is the truffle for you.
The spiraling blue galaxy on the top of this chocolate sets the theme for a very mellow flavor and possibly my favorite truffle that Coda makes. While it may be easy to become transfixed on the gorgeous blue swirl, the flavor of Early Grey is even more entrapping. The first bite of this truffle yields a uniquely sweet milk chocolate flavor, that is perfectly accented by the dark tea flavor of Earl Grey. Along with an alluring aftertaste of honey, this truffle is as close as you can get to a delightful English style cup of Earl Grey tea mixed with a splash of milk and a hint of honey.
Green, and yellow blend together along the surface of this immaculate little truffle. Unlike most of the other truffles, which are quite mellow, the Juniper Lemon has a zing to it that you can smell before you’ve even taken your first bite. The chocolate inside is a light white chocolate that perfectly conveys the lemon flavor along with a hint of tangy juniper. The slight tang of the juniper berries was something that I wasn’t sold on until I tried my first bite, and I knew from then on that it was a perfect pairing with lemon.
Hazelnut is my strongest competition against Early Grey, as my favorite truffle from Coda Signature. Half light-brown and half light-green, crisscrossed with dark lines of rich brown, Coda Hazelnut Truffles are as tastefully artistic as any of their companions. The inside is loaded with some of the richest milk chocolate I’ve ever tasted. The dark rich flavor of the roasted hazelnuts inside adds some amazing boldness to these Ferrero Rocher-esque treats. If you are a fan of Nutella or anything hazelnut, then these little guys are going to be a big hit for your taste buds.
Possibly one of the most stand-out truffles when it comes to aesthetics, the Coda Signature Passion Truffles are bright pinkish-red, emblazoned with splotches of black color. The inside is a gooey and extremely light caramel, infused with passion fruit flavor. The unique kick at the end of each bite is from the added Szechuan peppers, which make a delightful addition to this sinfully fruity treat. If you’re a fruity fan, then this is the truffle for you.
Who doesn’t like tiramisu? This steel gray truffle brings mixes of shiny metallic color and splotches of artfully placed yellow into its visual composition. The outside looks hold a flavor that is simply remarkable. Dark espresso bean flavors blend perfectly with dark chocolate, mixed with sweet mascarpone, to soften the texture and make this truffle as astonishingly smooth as the tiramisu it so gracefully emulates.
As a final note, I’d like to add that I’ve never had any marijuana edible in my life that hides the marijuana flavor as well as Coda Signature Truffles do. Each truffle also weighs in at 10 milligrams each which make them the precise serving size for edibles that is recommended for first-time users. So, what are you waiting for? Get out there and try the best marijuana edibles, you’re ever going to try. If you’re a seasoned marijuana edible pro and would appreciate a buzz, each package contains 6 truffles, for a total of 60 milligrams of THC. I’ll proudly bear my shame, and admit that I ate the entire box the first time I had Coda Signature Truffles. Don’t worry, if you can’t stop at just one truffle, your secret is safe with me.
