Name: Couque D'Asses

Brand: Sanritsu

Origin: Japan

Found at: Sunset Super

Cost: $2.59

Ingredients: Flour, chocolate, sugar, shortening, albumen, butter, corn syrup, milk, corn starch, egg, cocoa, salt, wine, lecithin, flavor

Calories per serving: 44

Why I bought it: 99% for the funny name and 1% craving for butter cookies filled with chocolate cream.

Tasting notes: Watch out, because they're so light and delicate that it's not humanly possible to eat just one. (They're tiny.) Also, could the inclusion of wine in the translation of the ingredients possibly be wrong? Where's the wine?

Would I buy it again? Yes, they're tasty.

What other blogs/sites thought of it: Bunnyfoot declares Couque D'Asses to be "hours of snacking entertainment."

  • 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.'"
