‘Twice Baked’ Red Hot Riplets coming soon to Missouri dispensaries
The THC-infused chips by Vivid and Old Vienna will be sold under Missouri’s Own brand of edibles
It’s all that and a bag of chips. Missouri cannabis manufacturer Vivid and St. Louis-based snack maker Old Vienna will debut THC-infused Twice Baked Red Hot Riplets potato chips in select St. Louis dispensaries Wednesday, June 8, and dispensaries statewide by June 15. The product will be sold under Vivid’s Missouri’s Own brand of edibles as the first in a series of partnerships with locally loved culinary creations.
“Missouri’s Own is a brand that’s designed to celebrate our local flavors, and no flavor says St. Louis more than Red Hot Riplets” said Tony Billmeyer, CMO of Show-Me Organics—a Missouri owned cannabis company that operates Missouri’s Own and VIvid, among other brands. “Old Vienna’s Red Hot Riplets are an iconic local brand known for delivering a spicy, satisfying crunch. The Twice Baked version delivers on the same great taste and texture while providing an additional kick suitable for everyone from first-timers to experienced cannabis users.”
Twice Baked Red Hot Riplets are infused with a low dose of THC, so that a handful of chips contains about 10mg of THC.
“Our snacks have been a staple in St. Louis and the surrounding region for more than 80 years,” said Andy Doyle, Director of Operations at Old Vienna. “This innovative partnership with Missouri’s Own Edibles marks a new day for our storied brand, and we’re excited to introduce a THC-enhanced version of our classic Red Hot Riplets.”
Local artists Jayvn Solomon and Brock Seals created commemorative artwork for the Missouri’s Own x Red Hot Riplets launch, to ultimately be featured at Paint Louis 2022.
Each box of chips will contain about 20mg of THC and cost $14 (MSRP). The chips will first be available at St. Louis dispensaries including BLOC, Greenlight, Jane, NatureMed, N’Bliss, and Swade.
