Name: Soyer Chocolate Soy Protein Snack

Brand: Lotte

Origin: Japan

Cost: $2.39

Found at: Sunset Super (2425 Irving)

Ingredients: Sugar, skimmed soybean, whole milk powder, corn starch, cocoa butter, cacao mass, palm oil, lactose, salt, wheat flour, egg, shellac, calcium carbonate, vegetable lecithin, artificial flavor

Calories per serving: 150

Why I bought it: I wanted to know whether chocolate soy protein would be gross or delicious.

Tasting notes: This sort of tastes like a larger and puffier version of Cocoa Pebbles cereal, with almost as nice of a crunch. However, despite cocoa butter appearing so high on the roll call of ingredients, the chocolate tastes cheap and waxy-- maybe because "shellac" is one of the ingredients? This could be great Snacktion if a real chocolatier attempted to make it with better quality ingredients.

Would I buy it again? Yes, but just to introduce others to the novelty. I'm not sure I like the sound of the shellac, even if it may be an incorrect translation.

What other blogs/sites think of it: This seems to be another yet-to-be-discovered item in blogland.

  • 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.'"
