Name: Lemonist

Brand: Morinaga

Origin: Japan

Found at: Ichiban Kan (1625 Post)

99 cents (but I later discovered they were a week past their "sell by" date and normally go for $2.29)

Ingredients: Wheat flour, sugar, shortening, egg, butter, oil, concentrated lemon juice, coconut oil, rapeseed oil, margarine, salt, artificial flavor, soy lecithin

Calories per serving:

Why I bought it: The irresistible combination of price and cuteness.  I don't willingly pick up many "isms" in my life, but I sensed I might easily convert to the cult of the Lemonist.

Tasting notes: It's a little bit dry, but not unpleasantly so. The lemon flavor is muted and doesn't taste blaringly artificial.

Would I buy it again? Maybe, but I'll search for fresh ones next time.

What other blogs/sites thought of it: Biscuit Van thinks Lemonist is "sweet and buttery."

  • 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.'"
