I’m always excited for new things, whether they’re technological achievements or simply creative takes on existing products.
- Whenever I think I have seen every iteration of the Oreo known to man, Nabisco manages to shock me yet again with something creative and unique.
The same goes for the local fried chicken restaurant that has been family owned since its opening over 50 years ago. Every year they try to create a new chicken dish to celebrate the anniversary of their grand opening. This year they had a roasted rotisserie chicken with this amazing pineapple sauce that the son of the owner had accidentally concocted one day while experimenting with various sauce recipes. It’s absolutely delicious, and I enjoyed it so much that I bought another family-sized order to put in the freezer for later use. I shouldn’t be surprised by their seemingly endless capabilities at innovation, just like I shouldn’t be surprised when I see all of these different marijuana products all of the time at the local cannabis dispensaries. It seems like the available marijuana products are expanding with time, especially as state rules affect what kind of solvents can be used for extracting cannabis oils. I’m just happy to see a good selection of various strains, with landrace and old school delights seeing equal representation alongside some of the newer sativa, hybrid, and indica strains that are “hot” right now in the global cannabis market. As long as I can access Durban Poison and Sour Diesel for daytime cannabis consumption, I’ll be happy. Every now and then I’ll try one of the newer strains to see what kind of mileage I can get out of it.
