Should Vitamin Popcorn Be Part of Your Balanced Diet?

The other night, while trawling the Lower Haight for good Snacktion, we came across Tate's Vitamin Popcorn, which boasts 10 "essential vitamins and minerals" such as beta-carotene, zinc, and Vitamins A, C, and E. Plus honey-roasted peanuts! Our late night snack fixes are rarely of the health-boosting sort, so this seemed to be the best of both worlds.

Three out of three friends we surveyed couldn't get past the first bite. We shoveled a few handfuls of it, both out of reflex and of research, looking past a frankly medicinal taste for as long as we could. But they were right. It's a great idea, but we don't think Vitamin Popcorn needs to be part of your balanced diet.

Take our word for it, or take the "healthy" challenge for yourself by ordering online or at Haight Fillmore Whole Foods (503 Haight at Fillmore).

  • 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.'"
