Name: Edamame & Chocolate

Brand: Jade Chocolates

Origin: San Francisco

Found at: Chocolate Covered (4069 24th St. at Noe)

Cost: $12

Ingredients: Bittersweet chocolate, dry roasted edamame, sea salt.

Calories per serving: Not listed

The word: Local independent confectioner Jade Chocolates packages these party-sized treats in Chinese take-out boxes. Edamame, the green soybeans that are a staple at sushi joints, are roasted, dipped in dark chocolate and dusted with cocoa powder.

Tasting notes: Go the slow route and suck the chocolate off first to really experience the nutty soybean flavor. If that sounds too freaky, you'll just get a nice sweet crunch if you chew it up quickly. Win-win.

Buy it again? Yes, although the price point will limit the frequency. (Maybe they'll consider offering a smaller size at some point?)

Extra credit: They're vegan!

  • 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.'"
