Figr’s Go Play Mandarin Cookies, a sativa-dominant hybrid that was made by crossing Cookies with Mandarin Sunset.
The buds are a light green colour with hints of reddish pistils and a generous dusting of frosty white crystal trichomes that give it a picturesque appearance. The earthy orange flavour is a standout feature of this strain, lending it a tangy and sweet taste that lingers on the palate. So, let’s dive in and see how it compares to Back Forty’s Mandarin Cookies or Figr’s other sativa Go Steady Kali Mist.

When we opened the yellow plastic container that housed Figr’s Go Play Mandarin Cookies, we were initially underwhelmed by the lack of aroma. However, after giving it a few seconds, we were able to detect a subtle herbal scent with subtle elements of hay. Unfortunately, we found the overall smell to be somewhat generic and unremarkable, lacking the distinct sweetness we had anticipated.
We were pleased to find the flower packaged with a Boveda humidity shield however the buds were still very dry. The labelling on the container was comprehensive, providing all the necessary information including brand name, product name, THC and CBD levels, weight, contact details, lot number, and packaged date. However, we were disappointed by the appearance of the flower itself. The buds were light green with pale orange hairs, but the overall look was very lackluster. The buds were leafy, stemmy, and fluffy, with an unimpressive visual appeal. Compared to other versions of Mandarin Cookies we have encountered, this one would be at the bottom of the list when it comes to appearance.
When we lit up Figr’s Mandarin Cookies, we were disappointed to find the flavour was underwhelming just like the smell. While we could detect a mild herbal taste on inhale, there was not much else to note. The flower had almost no flavour profile and it was hard to identify any standout or memorable components to it. When compared to other versions like Mandarin Cookies from Weed Me, this one definitely had the least impressive taste. In addition, the leafiness of the flower made the smoke pretty harsh and made us cough quite a bit. The lack of flavour and harshness of the smoke made for a somewhat underwhelming experience.
After trying Figr’s Go Play Mandarin Cookies, we can say that while the price of $21.95 for 3.5 grams is quite reasonable, we would not be inclined to purchase it again. The flower was packaged on December 14, 2022, with a lot number of 203220050 and a THC level of 21.7%. While the effect was moderately strong, it lacked the uplifting and energizing qualities that we were hoping for from a sativa-dominant hybrid. We did experience a calming mental effect, but overall, the experience was lackluster.
In conclusion, while the price point may be attractive, we believe that there are better options available for those seeking a Mandarin Cookies strain. Our experience was somewhat disappointing and we would not go out of our way to buy again.
