High times in the organic aisle

I was at the grocery store last night, perusing the organic section for peanut butter, when the fellow looking in the organic freezer case said, "Ha!" I turned to him questioningly.

"They've got hemp waffles now!" he exclaimed. "Flying high at the breakfast table!"

"I sure wouldn't give them to my kids," I said. "They're wired enough as it is."

Anyone out there ever tried hemp waffles? I'm mildly curious -- but not curious enough to pay a premium price that exotic waffles command.

Sounds gross to me. Though I'm thinking they might be more kid-friendly than you might expect. Your little monkeys may very well just giggle themselves to sleep. After a few snacks of course...

Aren't the '70s supposed to be over?

Hemp waffles are best served with aguave nectar and soy milk. Don't forget to sing Kumbaya before you dig in.

In all seriousness, aguave nectar is quite tasty... like syrup, but different.

Do you buy a lot of organic stuff? We switched to organic milk recently but that's it so far. Thinking about doing more.

Mostly just peanut butter, really. It's not so much the "organic-ness" of it as that I like the no-sugar-added, just peanuts style of peanut butter, and the best brand at my particular supermarket is the organic brand.

Sometimes I buy organic salads as well, but again, not because they're organic but because they taste better.

Actually I don't think there is anything halucinogenic in hemp waffles. It might even be a grain I can consume (I am allergic to most grains) I would have to check with my allergist and diatician.

with my luck they supplement the hemp with organic wheat flour.

I saw hemp tortilla shells at my store. Still not gonna try them.

MrsDarwin said...

Hemp tortilla shells. That's just wrong.

I have had hemp cereals but not the waffles. And there is nothing halucinogenic in hemp waffles. In fact there is nothing halucinogenic in marijuana either since marijuana is not a hallucinogen .

What is NOT in hemp waffles (or cereals for that matter) is THC. The substance that actually gets you high.

WHAT IS in hemp cereals (and waffles) is a lot of Omega 3 fatty acids which are very good for your heart. So please let's stop all the "Aren't the 70's over with" comments. This stuff is actually very good for you.

And actually even if there was THC in those waffles, it might actually help mellow your kids out a bit. This might make them easier to control, but you would eventually get tired off them constantly listening to Iron Butterfly's "In-A-Gadda-Di-Vida". : )
