Luke's Organic Cheddar Lightning Bolts: In the same way that clouds can resemble animals, these completely-normal-shaped crunchy cheese snacks require a certain level of imagination to see them as lightning bolts. The powdered cheese has a milky quality, with less of the intense savoriness of Cheetos and more of a sour cream flavor. It's not bad but also not particularly good, like organic boxed mac and cheese brands that are still trying to taste like Kraft. If you are looking for a "grown up" version of cheese snacks, there a... (read more) 3.0/5.0

Noosa Blackberry Serrano Yogurt: A surprisingly spicy yogurt whose heat builds up quickly, this blackberry serrano yogurt is too spicy to be a sweet and too fruity to be savory. The quality of the yogurt is as good as any other Noosa flavor: creamy yet thick, with enough moisture to not need an accompanying glass of milk. It’s not a snack I plan to return to, yet I think it’s commendable for Noosa to take this risk and give us something I haven’t seen before. 3.0/5.0

Taveners Jelly babies: Since 1904, brits have been able to satisfy their cannibalistic desires with Taveners jelly babies. These gummy candies have a unique frosted coating; biting through it reveals a softer, slightly sticky interior that’s very sweet with classic fruit flavors (simply described as “flavorings” in the ingredients). Good in small quantities. 3.0/5.0

Sprouted Go Raw Banana Bread Sprouted Bar: Recently, my office has started getting free snacks / advertising from various organic energy bar companies. This one from Sprouted contains four ingredients: flaxseed, banana, coconut, and dates. It appears sizable but is in fact very thin, perhaps giving off an illusion of substance or value. Consistency-wise, it's slightly chewy and sticky. By color, you may not guess it's banana bread flavored, but you can definitely taste it, though the addition of dates gives it a unique sweet flav...

Berkeley Bowl Dark chocolate Malt Balls: I wish malt balls were shelf stable so they could be purchased without any coating. Until then, they seem so only exist in chocolate covered balls, as is this bulk snack from Berkeley Bowl. The chocolate coating is significantly thicker than that found on Whoppers or Maltesers, but as a side effect, the predominant flavor and texture is that of dark chocolate. When the chocolate layer is consumed first, the malt interior is found to be crunchy unlike the melt-in-your-mouth consistency of mas... (read more) 3.0/5.0

Sweetheart Cafe Almond milk tea with boba: Every few months, I stop by Sweetheart Cafe for their preternaturally chewy boba, despite the fact that I’ve never had a particularly good drink here. This time, I waited patiently in line after a group of Cal students arrived for their bubble tea fix at 10pm (the busiest I’ve seen the place, though now that I think about it, I’ve only ever gone there at night). The almond milk tea had a sweet and predictable flavor (even at half sweetness), but the boba was very good. I wonder if they would... (read more) 3.0/5.0
