Kashi Dark Mocha Almond Chewy Granola Bars: Leaning towards the crunchier side of the chewy granola bar spectrum, Kashi's whole grain granola bars contain barley, rye, and oats, as well as roasted almonds and sizable dark chocolate chips. Very lightly sweetened with a mild mocha flavor. I was hoping it would be more filling, but the bar alone would not be enough for the afternoon, and having two granola bars just feels like too much. Overall, it's decent, but not a product I'd likely purchase again. 3.0/5.0

Silk Chocolate Soymilk: Once every few months, I crave chocolate milk and typically opt for a single-serving container. The last incident occurred while I was visiting my alma mater and felt guilty for eating quick, mostly unhealthy meals during my stay. To accompany my sausage breakfast sandwich at Verdes, I purchased Silk chocolate soymilk. I felt good about the amount of calcium, given that my only other source of calcium that weekend came from melted cheese. While the drink was sweet, it complemented my hea... (read more) 3.0/5.0

Gott's Roadside Chocolate and Vanilla Softserve: After a long rainy week, I was craving a warm baked dessert and thought for sure I could find one in the Ferry Building on my way home. Unfortunately, I wasn't interested in cupcakes, leftover bread, or gluten-free desserts, and the line for Humphrey Slocombe was far too long. I noticed that Gott's Roadside had a sign for Strauss Creamery, whose yogurt I had recently enjoyed, so i decided to give it a try. Unfortunately, I realized afterward that their soft serve isn't made using anything... (read more) 2.0/5.0

Cream Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwich with Chocolate Chip Cookies: For the past few weeks, I've passed this popular Ice Cream shop on my way back from Amoeba in Berkeley and always noted the long lines. At around 10pm last Friday night, it took me 8 minutes in line to get to the counter, where I was greeted with an overwhelming scent of butter and baked goods. While the menu lists over 20 flavors, only about 10 are actually available at any given time. I ordered their mint chocolate chip ice cream with two chocolate chip cookies for a surprisingly low pri... (read more) 4.0/5.0

Royce' Potatochip Chocolate: After trying some of the flavored ganache at this Japanese chocolatier, I spotted an unusual chocolate covered potato chip line and asked for a sample. Ridged and thick-cut, the potato chips are surprisingly crispy, and the dark chocolate works unexpectedly well with the fried chips. It finishes with a familiar flavor of vegetable oil, but not in an overwhelming way. I'm sure that the potato chips without the chocolate taste better than your typical Lay's or Ruffles. A winning combinatio... (read more) 4.0/5.0

Nestle Butterfinger: As a child of the 90s, it's difficult for me to see a Butterfinger and not think of Bart Simpson. But it isn't the marketing that makes this candy good – it's that Butterfingers has captured a part of the candy market with few, if any, competitors that are able to replicate the same crispy and buttery consistency it is famous for. While others are similar in flavor, like Mary Janes, the flaky texture of the Butterfinger far surpasses that of any wafer candies (such as Kit Kats) or harder t... (read more) 4.0/5.0
