And a dash of Veruca Salt

Once upon a time, I inhaled a few particles of what was then called “Nestlé’s Quik.” (It has since been truncated to “Nesquik,” which to me sounds too much like “Bisquick.”) It was nothing like this:

It may sound like one of Willy Wonka’s failed inventions (three course dinner gum, anyone?), but you can now purchase a “snortable” chocolate powder as an all-natural way to get high.

Coco Loko, the latest product from Orlando-based Legal Lean, boasts an intimidating mix of cacao powder, gingko biloba, taurine, and guarana (ingredients most frequently found in energy drinks). The effects are said to be a 30-minute to one hour buzz that is “almost like an energy-drink feeling, like you’re euphoric but also motivated to get things done.”

Yeah, that would definitely intimidate me. But it’s just one more data point to support the theory that chocolate is uniquely useful.

    Waste of good chocolate, if you ask me.
