Name: Hawaiian Cinnamon Bread

Brand: Golden Phoenix Bakery

Found at:
22nd and Irving Market (2101 Irving)

Cost: $1.59

Flour, water, sugar, eggs, margarine, cinnamon, milk, yeast, salt, vanilla

Why I bought it: I've purchased this many times, but this time I had a house guest from the East Coast who had never tried nor even heard of the sweet, fluffy taste of Hawaiian bread.

Tasting notes: Those without an extreme sweet tooth take heed: The cinnamon part is actually cinnamon sugar, and lots of it. Now, I'm not saying one should consume this entire loaf in one sitting, but it really does taste best on the first day after it's been opened.

Would I buy it again?
Yes indeedy.

What other blogs/sites thought of it:
This bread does not appear to have fallen into the clutches of any sites that feel like speaking on it one way or another.

  • 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.'"
