Best Medicinal Chocolate - 2008
Chocolate truffles with marijuana at Dolores Park
Aftermath of a fever dream: You're lounging on the grass in Dolores Park on a perfect weekend afternoon, watching dogs, babies, dogs with Frisbees, babies with Frisbees. A handsome young man materializes out of the mist, bearing a tray hung from a strap around his neck, something like a New Age cigarette girl, but instead of cigarettes the tray holds homemade chocolate truffles costing $5 each. The price sounds a trifle steep, but these are not just any chocolate truffles: blended with the high-quality Guittard chocolate is a judicious quantity of powdered cannabis sativa. Shades of Alice B. Toklas. Ah, only in San Francisco.
