State Bird Seed Almond Rosemary Puffed Quinoa, Seeds, Almonds & Herbs: State Bird Provisions and The Progress are two restaurants I always recommend to people asking me where they should eat in San Francisco. I heard that the chefs behind the restaurants came out with a line of snacks and fortuitously found them stocked at Berkeley Bowl West. There was only one flavor on the shelf when I went, an almond and rosemary savory "granola" combining quinoa and sunflower seeds. Sadly, I found that it had a bitter aftertaste, almost like it the granola had been baked a bit too long so that it was slightly burnt. And the rosemary flavor is strong enough that I don't want to eat very much of it before I'm rosemary-ed out. I have a hard time imagining what you would pair this with, and it doesn't taste particularly pleasant out of the bag. A miss for me. 2.5/5.0
