As spring heads into summer, there's nothing Coloradans love more than getting outside and exploring the great outdoors...sometimes with cannabis for a real Rocky Mountain high. It's illegal to smoke in federal parks, which is why edibles are an ideal item to pack. Whether you're heading to the mountains for the weekend or just hanging out in your back yard, here are ten of the best edibles to bite into this summer.
Blue Kudu's Alpine Glacier
Ready for a chill day by the pool? Cool off with Blue Kudu's mint dark chocolate bar.
Dixie Elixer Limited Edition Memorial Root Beer
As part of its Chill product line of cold beverages, Dixie is doing a limited-edition Memorial Day Root Beer that supports veterans. For every drink you purchase, fifty cents will be donated to the Veterans Sportsman Alliance
, which helps injured and disabled veterans explore nature and embark on outdoor adventures.
Dr. J's Raspberry Star Barz
Dr. J's Star Barz are offered all year ’round, but their seasonal flavor sounds delightful. The white chocolate and raspberry would be great shaved on top of ice cream or any other summer dessert.
