  • Freeland Foods' Ginger Snaps Super Cookies.

Mountain View's Freeland Foods offers a number of quality raw and gluten-free snack items, including bars, chips, and chocolate, but one product is particularly addictive.

If you told Cook E. Monster that you had a cookie that was sugar-free and made with sprouted items that is difficult to stop eating, you would have received a huge side eye; health cookies aren't sexy. But Freeland's Ginger Snaps Super Cookies magically manage to deliver. They're made of coconut, sprouted sesame seeds, dates, and organic ginger powder -- that's it.

The dates actually give adequate sweetness, but it's the brace of buzzy ginger and the light, crunchy texture that make us crave these and come back for more.

Other varieties such as chocolate aren't as successful -- they taste less sinful, which in our minds is the goal of a successful cookie.

Find 'em online or at Rainbow Grocery.

  • 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.'"
