Marijuana Almond Roca Brings New Aroma to Tacoma Fave
While visiting Rainier Wellness Center on a recent Monday -- and admiring their abundant selection of sweet and savory medibles -- the almond roca buttercrunch cookie bar seemed to stand out among its peers, almost glowing as it siren-called to me with its nutty, chocolatey allure.

Putting the "ooo" in "coookie": Almond Roca Buttercrunch Cookie Bar.
?In what is surely the biggest advance in Almond Roca technique since the invention of the stuff in Tacoma back in 1923, the sweet treat is now available infused with marijuana.
Almond Roca's roots run deep in Tacoma, having been invented by Harry Brown and J.C. Haley, founders of Tacoma's Brown & Haley Co. The name was supposedly inspired by a local librarian who chose the Spanish "roca," meaning "rock," to describe the hard candy.
While visiting Rainier Wellness Center on a recent Monday--and admiring their abundant selection of sweet and savory medibles--the Almond Roca buttercrunch cookie bar seemed to stand out among its peers, almost glowing as it siren-called to me with its nutty, chocolaty allure.
Almond Roca contains sugar, almonds, butter, oil, nonfat dry milk powder, chocolate, cocoa butter, and vanilla, and if you've never tried this local treat, yes, it is every bit as delicious as it sounds.
The cookie bar combines the goodness of a shortbread cookie layered with Almond Roca butter crunch--and it is a marriage made in paradise.
Helpful budtender Amy confirmed my notion that I was looking at one delicious treat, and upon returning home and trying said confection, it soon became apparent that I had just consumed one of the most potent medibles I'd ever had. Expect a deep, long body high with blissful pain relief and stress reduction.
