The vegan product was rolled out in California and the response was positive . But things didn’t go smoothly in Colorado – in fact the product got banned.
In Colorado, Tyson’s edibles will be in the shape of a “T,” according to Denver-based outlet Westword. This due to a 2016 state law that forbids edibles in the shape of humans, animals, fruit, or other objects that could be enticing to children.
