Origin: San Francisco
Found at: Rainbow Grocery (1175 Folsom at Division)
Cost: $2.49
Ingredients: Oven-roasted organic pumpkin seeds, organic chile de arbol, organic lime juice, salt
Calories per serving: Not listed.
The word: Spicy nuts, plain and simple.
Tasting notes: The chile is zingy, but not overbearing unless you shove a ton of these in your mouth all at once, as SFoodie is wont to do.
Buy it again? Yes, but will probably try the lime variety first.

  • 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.'"
