Name: Tropical Mango Bar

Brand: Lydia's Organics

Origin: Fairfax


Found at: Other Avenues (3930 Judah)

Cost: $2.59

Ingredients: Bananas, coconut, mango, pineapple and love

Calories per serving: 110

Why I bought it: It's raw, vegan and organic and free of sugar, gluten and oil. I wondered what that would taste like.



Tasting notes: It has a lovely, natural sweetness. The package suggests eating this as is or re-hydrating it; the latter is a really good idea since it is super tough and hard otherwise; it's almost inedible.

Would I buy it again? No, I'll just eat the fresh fruit components instead.

What other sites/blogs thought of it: Yummy Diet Food is a fan, declaring it "really tasty."

  • 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.'"
