A Dutch Restaurant Chain Now Sells 'Weed Sauce'

Posted By on Tue, Apr 16, 2013 at 6:02 PM

Enterprising imbibers of marijuana, we've got a new experiment for you: "Weed Sauce."

French fry chain Manneken Pis has developed a new dipping sauce for its customers, based around one of the most celebrated puff-puff-pastimes in the Netherlands, giving people the opportunity to dip their fries in something that's contains the "unmistakable taste of weed" in it, according to New York magazine's Grub Street blog.

Apparently though, the sauce doesn't actually contain THC, so you won't be getting high off of it — sorry, folks. It's as effective in getting you stoned as those super-cool hemp-based hand lotions that square high-schoolers buy when they're trying to be edgy without getting grounded for smoking the dope.

From Grub Street:

French fry chain Manneken Pis thinks the time is nigh — they were voted "beste friet van Nederland 2013," mind you — so tomorrow they will introduce Wietsaus, a mayonnaise-based French fry dipping sauce infused, apparently, with the convincingly strong taste of weed.

Albert van Beek, the French fry chainlet's owner, says he was inspired by the pervasive smell of weed smoke on the street (obviously) and was in turn blown away to find out that skunky dipping sauce was not yet a thing. He got right to work.

By my calendar, it's still April 16, meaning that cannabis culinary artists have four days to throw together their version of a weed sauce — get, uh...baking, I guess.
