If you haven't made it to Hayes Valley's newest candy store, Papabubble yet, you're missing out on a wondrous world of confections.

See, much like Willy Wonka's famous factory, the mini-chain makes its intricate candies in-store, and it is quite a production to behold if you're lucky enough to catch them mid-process (most afternoons).

If not, The Chronicle has made a mesmerizing video of the candy production process, which looks more like blowing glass or some other intricate art project than the making of hard-candy. Watch for the very S.F.-centric message at the end:

  • 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.'"
