Mission Cheese, San Francisco

Toffee Chip Cookies from Anthony's Cookies in the Mission, San Francisco, CA | You can’t go wrong at Anthony’s, but if you’re only trying one cookie, start here.

Key Lime Pears from Recchiuti Confections in the Ferry Building, San Francisco, CA | The pears are thin and crispy like potato chips, flavored with lime essence, and dipped in very high quality chocolate. It’s rare as an adult to come across a new texture or flavor, and these accomplish that. They’re seasonal, but you can order them online, so if you won’t find yourself in San Francisco soon, at least you can play along at home.

    You must try their fleur de sel. My favorites.

Blackberry Milkshake at Barney's in Noe Valley, San Francisco | When I was a kid, the family would go camping and I’d spend hours picking blackberries. In the morning, mom would pour cream over them for breakfast. This tastes just like that.

Caramel Robin Eggs at Miette | These are only available around Easter, and I wait all year. The outer candy shell has an aftertaste of fresh lemon, with a layer of dark chocolate surrounding a caramel center. If you want some, you’ll need to get there before me, because I sweep every last bag into my basket and hoard them all year.
