Snacktion: Kika's Chocolate Covered Coconut Shortbread

Posted By on Tue, Apr 28, 2009 at 1:30 PM


Name: Chocolate Covered Coconut Shortbread
Brand: Kika's Treats
Origin: San Francisco
Found at: San Francisco International Chocolate Salon
Cost: $7.50
Ingredients: Semisweet chocolate, unsalted butter, unbleached wheat flour, rice flour, unrefined cane sugar, Rapadura sugar, unsweetened coconut, kosher salt, coconut extract, vitamin E
Why I bought it:
Kika's Brazilian Honey Cakes are lovely, but the shortbread is a new offering from this La Cocina Incubator Kitchen-operated business.
Tasting notes:
The Rapadura (dried sugarcane juice) gives this a caramelized tinge that's appealing. There's a good crunch and it doesn't make a big, crumby mess like regular shortbread.
Would I buy it again? Yes, although the Honey Cakes are beckoning . . .
What other blogs/sites thought of it: A Yelper calls these "so dark and addictive it's almost criminal."

  • 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.'"
