Poco Dolce Brings Out a New Pan-Holiday Chocolate

Poco Dolce, San Francisco's dedicated masons of chocolate and salt "tiles,"

are launching a new flavor for the fall and winter holidays: cranberry pumpkin seed.

The base-line tile of bittersweet chocolate and gray sea salt continues to deliver the bulk of the enjoyment, but the bright-red burst of dried cranberries is a pleasant surprise when you bite into one. The pumpkin seeds add a touch of texture and a muted flavor. You'll find the Poco Dolce tiles a local, more mellow version of Ritter Sport's nut and raisin bars. They carry forward the chocolate company's "mission to stay on the savory side of sweet."

The early stores to carry the new flavor: Cheese Plus, Avedano's, Blue Fog Market, and Whole Foods Market (Potrero Hill) in San Francisco, Country Cheese in Berkeley, and of course at Poco Dolce's retail store in Dogpatch. A box of eight tiles retails for $18.

  • 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.'"
