These handcrafted THC-infused chocolate bars are reminiscent of a Jackson Pollock painting. Made with “the finest couverture chocolate harvested without the use of forced child labor” as proclaimed on their website, they’re not only gorgeous to look at, but they taste delicious and provide amazing psychoactive effects. It’s clear that Tastefully Baked has put special time and effort into every Cannabis product they bring to market.
We were fortunate enough to get our hands on two different versions of the Pretty Dope Bars, including the latest flavor to hit shelves: the Strawberry Balsamic Ganache “Stuffed” Chocolate Bar! This bar features 62% cacao with a smooth dark chocolate taste. A totally black outer shell with lime green and white all-natural cocoa butter paint droplets ornately, decorating the entire surface almost like the stars in the galaxy. Break it open and you’ll discover a gooey and unexpected ganache made of strawberry puree and sweet balsamic vinegar, plus a lingering aftertaste of honey.
The second flavor we tried was the Dark Chocolate Bar – without any stuffing – which is more of a smooth, sweet and classic vibe. This chocolate is very robust and has a great bitter flavor made for an adult palate. Each bar is decorated with colorful cocoa butter that changes in style, so something simple like unwrapping chocolate turns into a wildly fun activity.
These chocolate bars are so good you’ll have to force yourself to stop eating so you don’t get too high. With a significantly strong potency level that only a state like Maine can provide, the whole bar has almost 400mg of delta-9 THC (a great reason to travel up north). Make sure to get yourself a bite of Tastefully Baked products if you have the chance – their upscale approach results in wonderful quality that shines through in this creative and versatile, but oh-so classic THC-infused edible.
Product info: 15.2 mg Delta 9 THC per piece & approx. 365 mg per bar
