New Hampshire: Shop owner adds THC to Oreo ice cream, feds say. It was sold to unsuspecting customers

Miami Herald

A man laced Oreo-flavored ice cream with THC — marijuana’s main psychoactive ingredient — and stored the batch inside a freezer of a New Hampshire cafe, federal prosecutors said. The ice cream was sold to customers who were unaware of the additional ingredient at Roots Café in Newmarket, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of New Hampshire.

A child was among several customers who showed up to hospitals with symptoms of dizziness, weakness and rapid heart rates after eating Angelo’s Amore brand of ice cream in March 2023, according to the Newmarket Police Department, McClatchy News previously reported. The juvenile, along with the other customers, tested positive for THC, police said.

According to Roots Café, the restaurant was not involved in making Angelo’s Amore ice cream, the restaurant said in a March 24 Facebook statement. Marc Flore, the 43-year-old Maine resident accused of adding THC to coffee-Oreo batch, was indicted on one count of tampering with consumer products, prosecutors said in a Feb. 29 news release. Information regarding his legal representation wasn’t immediately available on March 1. Direct contact information for Flore also wasn’t available.

Flore was the owner of the Angelo’s Amore ice cream shop located in Newmarket, Seacoastonline reported in June 2020.
