Name: Trancetto

Brand: Balconi

Origin: Italy

Found at: 22nd and Irving Produce Market

Cost: $2.99 (10-pack)

Ingredients: Sugar, wheat flour, fresh eggs, vegetable fats, glucose-fructose syrup, skim milk, low-fat cocoa powder, powdered skim milk, milk proteins, flavorings, emulsifiers, raising agents, salt.

Calories per serving: Not listed

Why I bought it: It was a low-fat impulse buy from a place known to stock some consistently good Snacktion.

Tasting Notes: This sponge cake layered with cocoa will be gone in two or three bites max, so it's a good thing it is a 10-pack. It's very light, so you're not likely to regret it, either. The Italians have been hiding this treat from us!

Would I Buy It Again? Oh, heavens yes.

What other blogs/sites thought of it: I haven't seen this reviewed elsewhere.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
