Napa's Obsessive Confection Disorder -- OCD Sweets for short -- has just landed in San Francisco. Its products are being exclusively (for the moment) carried at Other Avenues (3930 Judah, at 44th Ave.), and the organic co-op's produce has inspired several of the caramel flavors. Unusual varieties include butternut squash, candied yam, and salted agave-lime.

We think OCD is going to be a company to watch for innovating in the caramel category with its line of rich, vegan agave-nectar caramels, a lane wide open for OCD to experiment. We tried the Vegan Rosalia, which pops with notes of tangerine zest and hard pear cider, crowned with vegan dark chocolate, candied rose petal, and edible gold leaf. They're served in honking one-ounce portions that are pretty over the top, even for a seasoned sweet tooth, plus their agave sweetness is surprisingly richer even than honey caramels.

  • 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.'"
