Name: Maple Caramels

Brand: Sweet Revolution

Origin: San Francisco

Found at: Rainbow Grocery (also available at Bi-Rite)

Cost: $9.99 for box of six

Ingredients: Maple syrup, cream, honey, butter, sea salt and vanilla bean

Calories per Serving: Not listed

Why I Bought It: They're organic, locally/independently made and combine three of my favorite flavors. The packaging also made them look special.

Tasting Notes: The caramels are very chewy and quite large, so you can nibble off a little bit at a time and don't need to consume the whole box to feel satisfied. It has a powerful flavor, with a nicely salted finish.

Would I Buy It Again? Yes and yes. Also yes.

What other blogs/sites thought of it: These are brand-new to the two stores that carry them, but when they originally made their per-piece debut at Stella Pastry in North Beach two years ago, SFGate called them "delightful." And the cashier at Rainbow lit up when she saw that I bought them, proclaiming them well worth the (expensive) price and making me feel even better about my hunch to pick them up.

  • 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.'"
