Name: Dark Chocolate Rocky Road Candy

Brand: Droga

Origin: San Francisco

Found at:
Miette (449 Octavia)

Cost: $4

Ingredients: Chocolate, corn syrup, sugar, dry-roasted peanuts, xanthan gum, invert sugar, gelatin, water, sorbitol, vanilla.

Calories per serving:
Not listed

Why I bought it:
I was charmed by the name, tag line ("a good addiction") and homegrown origin.


Tasting notes: Be careful not to inhale it in one bite. The dry-roasted peanuts in place of the more traditional walnut is a superior substitution.

Would I buy it again? Yes, particularly for gifts, though the price is a bit steep for a one-ounce piece.

What other blogs/sites thought of it: Daily Candy declared an addiction to Droga.

  • 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.'"
