I’ve sold the Incredibles Chocolate Affogato Bars hand over fist at work, but until recently, I had yet to actually try one for myself.
For the purpose of this review, I was handed a silver foil pouch labeled with the iconic green “e” and a sticker reading “Affogato – Chocolate Latte, Espresso Beans, & Caramel Swirl.” The fact that the whole bar contains 300mg of THC, the psychoactive cannabinoid responsible for producing the euphoric feeling of being high, is also clearly marked on the outside of the resealable package. Giddy with the excitement of finally having the chance to try this gluten free edible, I ran to my car, tossed the bar on the seat, and headed toward home.
Upon my arrival, I feverishly ripped open the attractively branded pouch. Much to my dismay, chocolate latte, espresso beans, and caramel swirl had turned into exactly that — a goopy, swirled, chocolaty mess. While it was no longer a solid bar with dosing indications (as shown in the photo below), I was not to be defeated by something as trivial as the sun’s harsh rays and dosage uncertainty in my expert pursuit to try this Incredibles for the first time. With the Chocolate Affogato Bar being a powerful 300mg cannabis edible, it was imperative that I was careful. A novice user should not attempt eye-balling the dose of any cannabis infused food.

Grabbing a spoon, I scooped out an approximate 50mg THC dose with confidence. When I popped it in my mouth, instantly I was greeted with a burst of chocolate, the crunch of coffee beans, and a hint of caramel. Much to my surprise and delight, I tasted no hash or cannabis. A taste which, despite my love of a high, I have come to dislike. As the package implies, the flavors swirled about in my mouth with the beans offering a delightful change in texture.
I hadn’t eaten much prior to the Affogato Bar, and only a short 45 minutes later, I began to feel the familiar sensation of a come up. Tension in my muscles released, calming pressure settled behind my eyes, and I knew I was in for a treat.
I like to think of myself as an experienced cannabis consumer, but edibles can still be tricky, especially when going in blind. Too little and I feel nothing, but too much makes me sleepy. This time I seemed to have gotten it right — maybe I guesstimated the right dose, maybe the espresso added some pep, maybe the stars aligned — but in any event, the Incredibles Chocolate Affogato provided an excellent high without drowsiness.
I didn’t have any plans for the day, other than sprawling out in my chair and perusing the internet, but the Affogato Bar would be a nice option for any occasion. Whether you want to be on the couch or go high in the mountains, just remember to keep it from melting.
