To Whom It May from The Art of Edibles is the epitome of high class edibles. We were first introduced to the brand through their advertising, which was unlike anything the cannabis world has had to offer thus far. Left salivating, we couldn’t wait to get our palates on these delectable treats.
The Art of Edibles brand exists on two principles. Edibles should be accessible, and edibles should be tasty.
To accomplish the first, To Whom It May edibles are available in four potencies: 2 ½ mg, 5 mg, 15 mg, and 45 mg. With such a range of potencies, these edibles fit almost everyone’s tolerance levels.
Beginners, especially, will like the fact that they can precisely dose with the single digit potencies. With 5-10 mg being the threshold for psychoactivity in most patients, you can delicately balance your effects. Although geared heavily on the low end, even moderate dose patients can get in on the game with the 45 mg chocolates.
The second principle is achieved with four amazing flavors, each as delicious as the last.
Vivienne is a gorgeously tart and bitter bon bon style chocolate due to the combination of unsweetened cherries and red wine. This is balanced by dark chocolate and sweetened just slightly by honey. Then, after the complexity of it all settles, there is a fiery finish from the cayenne pepper.
I followed the unexpected spiciness of Vivienne with Zak, a nutty and chocolate concoction. A truffle style treat, Zak has a sweet, nutty flavor, creating a complex combination that is integrated so well, it tastes simple. Only after letting the flavors settle does the house-made, maple-smoked almond butter, raw honey, and roasted almonds truly start to manifest against the chocolate.
Myra brings back the filled bon bon style. Dark chocolate is filled with rich brandy, raw honey, and roasted hazelnuts. The brandy makes for a rich, fruity kick among the sweet honey and cocoa. Crunchy from the nuts, the brandy dominates the aftertaste as well.
Finally, we finished with Ralph, a rolled truffle featuring house-made hazelnut butter, dark chocolate, cocoa powder, raw honey, and hazelnuts. Rather than being the dense chocolate I expected, Ralph was surprisingly light and crispy with a strong roasted flavor. A delicate balance of creamy butter, chocolate, and smokey nut.
Looking back over my notes, I see a certain zen poetry to each edible. They are simple, but complicated. Obvious, but nuanced. Each bite reveals something hidden, and as far as I could tell, there was no change in taste with potency, which is a pretty impressive feat for any edible company.
Fine chocolates indeed, these artisan treats will impress anyone you present them to. They come packaged in a sharply designed box of 4, 8, or 24, making them fantastic to share among friends or gift to someone special. Personally, I chose to horde all the goodness for myself, and you won’t be judged if you do the same.
