10X Whoopie Pies by Kristy’s Kraveables
There are those who say good things come to those who wait . . . and those people are the ones who sampled this 10X Whoopie Pie from Kristy’s Kraveables, available at O.C. Hot in Garden Grove. Lovingly crafted with an indica-infused cannabutter/oil and clearly labeled with an expiration date, this treat has foresworn the chocolate cake approach and opted for the birthday route: the makers of this pie assembled together two pieces of yellow-cake (cunningly studded with festive green and red confetti-like sprinkles) surrounding a thick, decadent swathe of ooey-gooey chocolate frosting. Just like any good birthday cake, the bread here is moist and sweet as your childhood dreams. The frosting? You’ll think it was hijacked from the nearest Devil’s food cake, it’s that delish. Patients, please note: There’s virtually none of that “grassy” taste you tend to find in other edibles—that’s a good thing. Also, the body-leaning effects take their sweet time kicking in—call this “creeper cake.” About an hour after consuming, the stone is barely trickling in; about an hour and a half later, the effects rush in like warm ocean waves lapping an endless stretch of golden-brown sand. Birthday wishes do come true.
