Dutch Chip Shop To Serve Cannabis Mayonnaise
A chain of Dutch chip shops is to make an unusual addition to its condiments racks: cannabis-flavoured mayonnaise.
However, diners at Manneken Pis will be able to smother their Flemish fries with the sauce safe in the knowledge it will not give them the munchies or make them high.
The mayonnaise has been made without the active ingredient tetrahydrocannabinol, commonly known as THC.
"It's just about the taste," the chip shop chain's owner Albert van Beek said.
"We specialise in sauces and we constantly want to diversify.
"I had the idea because I smell the cannabis coming from the coffee shop opposite my chip shop in Amsterdam every day."
Mr van Beek's menus will clearly state that the mayonnaise - vastly more popular with chips in the Netherlands and Belgium than ketchup or vinegar - contains no euphoric THC.
The culinary creation comes less than six months after a law that would have stopped tourists smoking cannabis in Amsterdam's coffee shops was scrapped.
The city's mayor rejected the legislation, after the Dutch government ruled it will be up to local authorities to adopt the law.
