When setting a metafield to a type “product” you would be forgiven for thinking it would return a product object when accessed.
Unfortunately, this is Shopify so it returns a String GID.
It took me much longer than I would like to admit to figure this out. It was the reason I couldn’t access any of the product’s variables.
To access the object replace the following:
or use the all products array:
Appending .value loads the object rather than returning Shopify’s gid:// string.
Alternatively, we can use the all_products array to access the products by GID.
