Biting into one is an experiment with the unknown, a sensory experience that goes beyond just taste. Also known as buzz buttons, electric buttons, and electric daisies, the buds have a grassy, slightly sour flavor that’s accompanied by a pleasant tingling sensation. The effervescent, Champagne-like zing takes over slowly, dancing around the top of the tongue before giving way to a surprisingly welcome numbing, cooling effect.
