Springfield, MO – Native cuisines will be featured at SW Missouri’s growing festival, Taste of Springfield, this weekend downtown on the square. One specific booth will feature a recipe widely regarded as more popular than Chef David Leong’s cashew chicken: methamphetamines.
The flavored meth booth will be one of 25-30 local restaurant exhibitors, cooking technique demonstrations, specialty vendors and local music on Saturday. The highly addictive drug will be presented in various flavors including pineapple, cherry, grape and habanero-beefstick.
“Oh my…I had no idea that so many people are cooking meth in their homes,” said Loretta Humphries, who usually orders her food from the Schwann’s truck, “I’ve never seen anyone make it for tea parties.” According to George Hampton, spokesperson for Men Against Meth (MAM), most people in the Ozarks are unaware of the problem until they are presented with it in their face.
“We’re sponsoring the flavored meth booth to raise awareness. Don’t tell anyone but the ‘meth’ we’re serving is actually dippin’ dots melted into a gooey liquid, then infused with fruit or served as a habanero-beefstick,” said Hampton, “some people won’t get it, but it will introduce them to the most popular recipe in the Ozarks.”
