Britain’s new Brie trend makes pot brownies look tame

You may never look at Brie the same way again. There’s a new bougie trend involving wrapping MDMA, or Molly, in that delectable triple-creme brie cheese you’ve been dying to try for a whole new spin on the notion of amuse bouche.

In a world where cannabis edibles are already old hat, this dinner party fad apparently originated in England, where U.K-based Metro describes the inventor as “a 50-year-old businesswoman who said she regularly hosts MDMA-fuelled dinner parties at her London home.”

It started as an appetizing way to bond with her middle-class crew, according to Metro: “I have a strong circle of female friends and we had tried all the latest fads, food fashions and destination dinner parties but something was missing. We did not seem to have as much of a laugh than as when we were younger, there always seemed to be barriers up between us. So, one of our group suggested we all take MDMA together so we could open up to each other and improve our friendships.”

The fad has tickled some foodies, who muse that velvety, soft high-fat cheese is addictive enough on its own. You don’t even really need high-end charcuterie or tapenade to make it pop.

“We already knew (and were unsurprised) that cheese is basically a drug, but the act of ‘brieing’ takes that expression to new levels,” as Delish put it. “So all in all, it wouldn’t be such a bad idea to double check inside the brie wheel at your next event.”

While some doubt that MDMA-spiked Brie will ever replace the pot brownies of yore as party treats, there is some evidence that the drug has therapeutic uses. As the New York Daily News notes, MDMA is the key ingredient in ecstasy — the synthetic psychoactive drug that induces feelings of euphoria and heightens the senses.
