I spent a summer in Princeton between terms in my graduate program. I wasn’t employed and, technically, homeless, but I had a stash of grant money from my college and nothing to do but relax and read. Each morning, I’d stop off at the local coffee house and buy a coffee and pastry. I would then make my way over to Palmer Square off Nassau Street and settle under one of the leafy elms that stood sentry and provided shade for the benches below. There, I’d pop the top off my coffee to let it cool, unwrap the cellophane from my breakfast, and open my book. Those were some of my happiest days, and everything about this medicated raspberry bar from 530 Edibles reminds me of them.
I was a bit apprehensive about testing 530 Edibles’ medicated raspberry bar on the morning that I did. I wasn’t particularly hungry, and a heavy, sugary sweet dessert didn’t sound appealing at the time. However, this raspberry bar was light and flavorful, and not overly saccharine at all. It was the perfect pairing with my coffee, and I easily finished it all.
The bar has a simple crust, a tart raspberry middle, and light topping drizzled gently with chocolate. It is a modest, well made piece, yet incredibly tasty. Similar in just about every way to the same type of treat you would get in your treasured coffee shop, which fits into my daily routine perfectly.
Although 530 Edibles also come in 210 mg, which are more likely to be split into smaller doses, I sampled the 70 mg strength bar, a good potency for a moderate to heavy user. And every little bit of the 70 mg came through in the high. There was no denying I was medicated. However, it was capable and not too stoney or locking: perfect as a day starter. For a regular user like myself, getting to my desired medicated level can take some time and effort. Beginning your day with an edible, of which I’ve gotten into the habit, can help you get a head start on the day. After all, breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
