An Edible For Your Inner Chocoholic

“I love chocolate,” said every person on earth.

“I love artisanal dark chocolate,” said every foodie in the last 5 years.

As a society we definitely have a chocolate complex. From sexual associations to holiday treats, the cacao-based substance plays a central role in many modern traditions. We’re raised from childhood with a taste for a wide range of chocolate treats, and lately, that taste has shifted toward a preference for gourmet, handcrafted dark chocolate cacao.

So why is that, until now, chocolate marijuana edibles in Colorado have missed the high-cacao percentage trend? It’s not like delicious high % cacao isn’t readily available? Or that stoners don’t care about the quality of their food? On the contrary, in fact!

That’s where Dixie’ Toasted Rooster comes in. A simply delicious artisanal dark chocolate bar:

  • Sweet & salty.
  • Crunchy & smooth.
  • Cannabis & quality.
  • Welcome to the ganja gourmet.

Think it of as the Mast Brothers meets medication. Dixie’s scientifically extracted Co2 oil infused into 70% dark cacao with pumpkin seeds and Himalayan pink seas salt. I’m in.

“One reason our chocolate is so special is that it is hand-crafted and artisanal. In the sense that each bar is hand-poured and garnished with the highest quality ingredients. As far as flavor profile is concerned, our chocolate has many depths from a powerful and distinct cocoa flavor you taste up front with more overtones of fruitiness and acidity at the finish.”
-Todd Garston, Dixie’s Kitchen Manager

Moral of the story chocolate, like fine wine or cheese, is a craft learned and refined over time.  Chocolate can be crunchy or milky or bitter or fruity but one thing is for sure, the better the quality of the ingredients and process, the better the outcome.

If all of this doesn’t make you want to try a Toasted Rooster bar, you don’t have to take my word for it. As part of Dixie’s Secret Society of Budtenders, we distributed samples to budtenders around Denver and asked them to submit their reviews to a completely unbiased 3rd-party, Whaxy, to post online!
