chocolate candy!

That is the new phrase of the day.
2003-03-05 02:17:26 PM  
Please remember to scream it, as the punctuation demonstrates. Thank you.
2003-03-05 02:34:10 PM  
Mommy, why are there pink elephants laughing at you?
2003-03-05 03:34:23 PM  
Why do I always find out about this good stuff after it's too late?
2003-03-05 04:10:36 PM  
I gotta find me some of that.
2003-03-05 04:37:03 PM  
This should provide for an interesting easter season.
2003-03-05 05:38:03 PM

Twenty bucks for one chocolate covered shroom? That seems a bit expensive.
2003-03-05 06:56:52 PM  
Sigh.....I want my walls to melt too.
2003-03-05 08:50:35 PM  
Yeah cause the drug dealers are going to leave their drugs out for little kids to find...ooops.
2003-03-05 08:58:55 PM  
Sinatra, just stick to kerosene and matches. Works for me.
2003-03-05 10:26:46 PM  
mmm, chocolate hallucinogen...
2003-03-05 10:27:33 PM  
By the way, it's not hard to cover stuff in chocolate by yourself. I make white chocolate pretzels all the time.

I always wondered why the Oompa-Loompas were so freakishly multicolored.
2003-03-05 10:31:02 PM  
Do you think the chocolate-covered 'shroom people are hiring? I need a job in the Portland, OR area...

In Oregon?? So? This is the best way to eat shrooms from RI to WV to just about anywhere else. Anyone here who's played with muyshrooms or the devilacid knows it's an extremely common and tasty vehicle.
2003-03-05 10:32:27 PM  
What do shrooms do to you anyway?
2003-03-05 10:32:37 PM  
mmmmm...shrooms, and chocolate covered at that! Shrooms are great!! But on the sick side, true story here, my freind Shane ate a bunch of shrooms, got sick, threw them up, put them in a blender and then drank them. True, yes, sick, yes. I didn't do any more for awhile after that. But the pink elephant and the blue kangaroo are great to talk to! hehe!!
2003-03-05 10:34:18 PM  
Guess there's just not much to do in Oregon.
2003-03-05 10:35:02 PM  
$20 for one chocolate covered shroom?
Feh, they better have a high psilocybin content for that price.
2003-03-05 10:35:03 PM  
10 pounds of chocolate couldn't improve the taste of 'shrooms. The closest experience I could imagine would be eating vomit. Gah!
2003-03-05 10:36:08 PM  
hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha​hahahaha ha




2003-03-05 10:36:29 PM  
Illegal chocolate-covered hallucinogenic shrooms made in Oregon. Super Mario Bros. rejoice.
2003-03-05 10:36:32 PM  
Melts in your brain, not in your hand.
2003-03-05 10:36:49 PM  
20 bucks a pop! Helluva return on something pulled from a pile of cow shiate. Of course if it's covered in quality chocolate...
2003-03-05 10:37:09 PM  
I agree. Something about chocolate and shrooms, eek... I think Ide go with the pizza deal kids, or if your in a bind put them inbetween a peanut butter sandwich.
2003-03-05 10:37:26 PM  
Psylocybin (sp??) doesn't taste that bad.

Perhaps you are thinking of peyote.
2003-03-05 10:38:03 PM  

Shrooms cause hallucinations, promote a sense of well being, and percieved expansion of cconsciousness
2003-03-05 10:38:04 PM  
George Hudler surrenders....

/obscure college reference
2003-03-05 10:38:18 PM  
So umm, it tastes like chocolate covered ASS?
2003-03-05 10:38:20 PM  
PALEXC- They make you laugh you're farkin arse off for starters.
2003-03-05 10:39:04 PM  
Mommy, all of a sudden Pink Floyd really makes sense to me. The Gummi Worms are eating into my brain. I'll ask Alice when she's 10 feet tall.
2003-03-05 10:39:18 PM  
never done them, but i figure since weed made me really paranoid and depressed, i don't think i should try it.
2003-03-05 10:39:30 PM  
The taste can depend on the variety of mushroom. I know I've liked the taste of the ones I've had.
2003-03-05 10:39:38 PM  
Best. Drug. Ever.
2003-03-05 10:39:54 PM  
$20 is cheap
2003-03-05 10:40:15 PM  
"With Easter coming up, police are worried these illegal drugs could get into the hands of a small child thinking they're eating chocolate candy!"

i wish i were a kid again, and lived in Oregon.. ok maybe not the latter.
2003-03-05 10:40:44 PM  
Would you like a chocolate covered pretzel?
(Just pretend the word 'pretzel' is 'shroom').

2003-03-05 10:41:07 PM  
The word "mushroom" is in quotes in the article.
Are they actual mushrooms or not?
2003-03-05 10:41:30 PM  
shrooms are like lsd or mescalin or maybe peyote but perhaps not so intense. You can hallucinate and have the feelingof general euphoria so popular with the kids today for about 5 or 6 hours depending on the dosage, the quality and the setting and set of the experience.

so I hear.
2003-03-05 10:41:55 PM  
Think I'll order a dozen and give them to the neighbor kids, and watch them chase the floating rainbow bunnies. Good times had by all!
/feeling evil as hell tonight
2003-03-05 10:43:45 PM  
Irockalot, they're nothing like weed.

Check out the trip reports at

I wish weed did stuff like that =P
2003-03-05 10:43:45 PM  
If you don't like the taste of shrooms make tea out of them. It'll hit in about 20 minutes. You can add honey to mellow the earthy taste. The steeping releases all of the psilocybin and you can just discard the actual shroom.
2003-03-05 10:44:01 PM  
With Easter coming up, police are worried these illegal drugs could get into the hands of a small child thinking they're eating chocolate candy!

Thanks for shouting that at me. I may not have fully grasped the gravity of the situation if not for that very well-placed exclamation point.

farkin asshat reporters
2003-03-05 10:44:02 PM  
funnest. drug. ever.
2003-03-05 10:44:29 PM  
Pick only the caps. Try southern states in the summer. Take about 70-100 caps, and put half on them in a large crock pot. Pour in just enough water to cover them. Bring to a boil, while smooshing them the whole time. Let it boil about 5 minutes, then simmer it about 10 minutes. Let it cool for 10, then strain through a old t-shirt. Set aside. Repeat, with the other half, but instead of water, use set aside juice. One shot will be close to about 15-20 hits of acid.

Psylocybin (sp??) doesn't taste that bad.
There is nothing you can do to take away from the nasty ass taste that mushrooms are.
2003-03-05 10:45:15 PM  
Not cool.
2003-03-05 10:45:43 PM  
And remember kids, never trip without an experienced catcher there to save you if you fall.

(Oh, and I know what 'magic mushrooms' are, but the author of this article refers to this packaging and puts quotation marks around the word "mushroom" as if that's not what is actually inside the chocolate.)
