High Hummingbird

Having won the Academy of Chocolate’s 2016 Golden Bean for making the world’s best bean-to-bar chocolate, the Almonte couple behind Hummingbird Chocolate Maker have to wonder if one day their company might be comparably recognized by the High Times Cannabis Cup.

That’s because Hummingbird, which was launched in 2011 by Erica and Drew Gilmour, recently partnered with Canopy Growth Corp., the Smiths Falls-based, publicly traded marijuana company, to press ahead with creating a THC-laced chocolate product that could arguably appeal to gourmets who fancy a tasty buzz.

That's quite the move -- bringing chocolate back to the Hershey's factory that was abandoned. Of course, if the government refuses to allow cannabis-infused chocolates next year, then this will turn into pricey symbolism.
