Name: Edamame & Chocolate

Brand: Jade Chocolates

Origin: San Francisco

Found at: Chocolate Covered (4069 24th St. at Noe)

Cost: $12

Ingredients: Bittersweet chocolate, dry roasted edamame, sea salt.

Calories per serving: Not listed

The word: Local independent confectioner Jade Chocolates packages these party-sized treats in Chinese take-out boxes. Edamame, the green soybeans that are a staple at sushi joints, are roasted, dipped in dark chocolate and dusted with cocoa powder.

Tasting notes: Go the slow route and suck the chocolate off first to really experience the nutty soybean flavor. If that sounds too freaky, you'll just get a nice sweet crunch if you chew it up quickly. Win-win.

Buy it again? Yes, although the price point will limit the frequency. (Maybe they'll consider offering a smaller size at some point?)

Extra credit: They're vegan!
