Berkeley Bowl Southwest Snack Mix: I've gotten into the bad habit of going to Berkeley Bowl when I'm hungry, which means I'll usually stop by the bulk aisles and find something to munch on while I shop. The last time this happened, I picked up their Southwest Snack mix, which contains snacks I would never purchase on their own like corn nuts, multigrain tortilla chips, and seasoned cashews. The fully flavored snack is generously spiced, with a decent amount of heat and a little bit of smokiness. The best parts are the corn... (read more) 3.5/5.0

Cheeseboard Sticky Bun: I wouldn't say I have a sweet tooth, but I can enjoy sweet things. I definitely have a preference, though, for lighter desserts. This sticky bun from Cheeseboard falls on the opposite end of the spectrum. Soaked with a buttery glaze and topped with chopped pecans, it's the type of sweet that will actually induce a physical reaction, as your body and teeth rejects what it knows is not good for it.

Firecakes Pistachio Donut: I was hopeful about this highly regarded donut chain in Chicago. The offerings looked enticing, and fresh donuts were taken from the racks rather than those left sitting on display. But this pistachio cake donut was barely better than Dunkin, with a slightly dry, crumbly texture and too-sweet shamrock-green glaze, all compounded by an unnecessary brown sugar crumble. At least it was reasonably priced, at under $3. 2.5/5.0

Health Warrior honey almond chia protein bar: Dense, high fiber bar that is chewy and slightly sweet. Nutty flavor with a strange aftertaste reminiscent of cedar. Nicely textured bar. Not the best flavor but filling. 3.0/5.0

Huang Fei Hong spicy peanuts: Chili peanut blend containing dried chili peppers, roasted peanuts, and peppercorns. My dad swears by these, but I actually prefer the Qia Qia brand. The peanuts are not that flavorful until you get a mouthful of peppercorns, at which point the flavor is too strong. 3.0/5.0
