Stirring The Pot: Tangerine Kush budder paired with Berry Chantilly cake [Column]

Hello again everyone! I’ve got a great pairing for you today, as I go with Tangerine Kush budder dabs from GroundSwell here in Denver and a Berry Chantilly cake from my neighboring Whole Foods.

As you might notice, I am going to actually ‘DAB’ for this tasting and not use my pen. I have been using my rig for dabs of this Tangerine Kush lately and the flavor even from the rig is huge, smooth, with all the right citrus flavor you come to expect from a strain like that. The cake? Well, that’s just for the fuck of it. Looks great right? Two layers, icing all throughout, berries, and icing to die for.

I start with the cake this go around because it looks so damn good. The flavors of berries, light cream and fluffy vanilla cake flood the taste buds upon eating my first fork full. It’s incredibly rich and sweet. I light my torch and prepare to light the nail of my rig. I have a dab (GLOB) ready to go and a minute later my lungs are filled with smoke that tastes of plantains, orange marmalade and smoked sugars as the flavors from the cake bounce back and forth in my mouth. Exhaling, the sweetness of both the smoke and the cake really start to stand out. Hints of marshmallow like creaminess and orange scone flavors also seem to dance around.

I can feel the dab hit me like a sucker punch from Mr. T circa 1984. My head is spinning just a little bit, but that’s what I’m looking for anyways, so woo-hoo!! I slow down and attach the cake vigorously. The flavors (Probably from the insta-buzz attained from the dab) of the cake are much stronger now and hit my taste senses with a wallop. The cake I can say with some authority, is NOT a lie in this case, and the berries along with the icing just seem to sizzle.

I take another dab of the Tangerine Kush budder and the taste of fresh oranges give way to cloves and blackberry cream, which on the exhalation turn into caramel covered tangerine slices.

Great buzz now. The cake looks like a little like a mangled cartoon character with my random fork bites. I take a third dab and the flavors of those tangerines I continue to find go so well with the fresh blueberries and icing I just ate from the top of the cake. The 3 massive dabs have me reeling and the cake has me full.

This pairing was stupendous, filled with almost overbearing flavor from the cake coupled with the smokey sweetness of the budder dabs. I would most definitely recommend trying a good cake like this with some tasty dabs of your own in the future, you will not regret it. As always, you can get the tasty budder like this example from GroundSwell on Colfax. Check them out. Whole Foods makes some pretty awesome cakes too if you’ve never had them, so check that out too. It’s now frisbee time boys and girls, so peace out!
