Remember that scene in “Shrek” when Donkey said, “Have you ever met a person, you say, ‘Let’s go get some parfait,’ they say, ‘Hell no, I don’t like no parfait?’” That’s precisely how we feel about April’s Lemon Dreams from MoMo’s Bakery. Conceptualized by MoMo’s baker April Luce, these little cookies are an indulgent sweet treat that will leave your mouth doing a happy dance.
Individually packaged and created using a dough similar to that of a snickerdoodle, the cookies are soft and slightly chewy. The texture is complemented by a strong punch of lemon infused into the dough, but don’t think these cookies are tart – the bitterness of the lemon is tempered by a generous drizzle of sweet coconut, white chocolate drizzle that melts in your mouth.
At 5mg THC per cookie, edible lovers can easily enjoy multiple doses in one sitting. But be careful, as these half-dollar-sized treats are potent. We took two while watching the Tokyo Olympics and woke up on the couch eight hours later. Luckily, it was just in time to catch reruns of Jerry Springer while we noshed on a big bowl of Lucky Charms for breakfast.
Want to get the most out of your Lemon Dreams? Take one with a glass of whole milk. The high-fat content helps amplify the sedating effects of the indica-dominant cookie and guarantees your quick journey into dreamland.
