Name: Chai Raweo

Brand: Blessing's Alive and Radiant Foods


Found at:
Rainbow Grocery (1745 Folsom)


Soaked almonds, raw cashews, honey, coconut, chai essence

Calories per serving: Not listed

Why I bought it:
We have yet to cover any raw Snacktion, plus this looked like a creative offering from a local company. I hate original Oreos, but love the thought of this raw, vegan, hippie remix.

Tasting notes: This tastes a lot like a coconut chai macaroon, with bits of coconut starring as the lead texture.

Would I buy it again?
I would certainly eat them again, but no, I wouldn't pay eight-plus dollars again unless I found myself switching to a raw food diet at some point.

What other blogs/sites thought of it:
Dawn of a New Day says the Raweo has "a nice chai taste to it without the sugar."

  • 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.'"
