Name: Go Raw Chocolate Super Cookies

Brand: Freeland Foods

Origin: Mountain View

Found at: Rainbow Grocery (1745 Folsom)

Cost: $5.59

Ingredients: Organic coconut (unsulphured), sprouted organic sesame seeds, organic date, raw organic agave nectar, raw organic cacao

Calories per serving: 149

Why I bought it: Despite being burned a few times, the search for good raw and vegan Snacktion continues. Besides, super cookies rule the world!

Tasting notes: These are pretty addictive, mastering the elusive arts of texture and crunch. Free of nuts, wheat and gluten, they also thankfully taste more like chocolate than dates. That's a balance that can typically be reversed with vegan sweets; sometimes they rely too heavily on the dates.

Would I buy it again? Yes, and will also try some of the other sweet and savory flavors.

What other blogs/sites thought of it: Another tasty product from a local, family-owned company appears to fly below the Internet radar until now.

  • 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.'"
