Get Your Pride On With These Special Treats

This week in San Francisco is super-mega rainbow-powered, and here are a few places and treats you can track down to taste the rainbow (and bonus, all three of these places give back to the community with these purchases).

First up, when you’re bringing a couple of bottles of champers to various Pride brunches this weekend, a fab host gift would be a box of ~LA BOULANGE~’s rainbow macarons. Each box contains seven flavors: orange, passion fruit, pistachio, cassis, chocolate, lemon, and vanilla, and will be available at all La Boulange Bakery locations in San Francisco. A box is $12.50, and La Boulange will donate $1 to the Richmond/Ermet AIDS Foundation (REAF) for each box of Rainbow Macarons de Paris sold during the month of June.

Meanwhile, ~SOUVLA~ in Hayes Valley is topping their fab frozen Greek yogurt with “Rainbow Surprise,” a blend of classic fruity (sugary) cereals. For each of the Rainbow Surprise yogurts sold from June 24th-June 29th, Souvla will donate $1 to the San Francisco LGBT Center. 517 Hayes St. at Octavia.

More frozen action: ~THREE TWINS ICE CREAM~ has created some themed ice cream flavors to celebrate Pride weekend (available from Friday June 27th-Sunday June 29th). The newly reopened Lower Haight shop will be serving up Two Tops Don’t Make a Bottom, Hot Cookie, Tea Bag, and others! Hilarious. Just $3 for prepacked (hold the jokes, okay?) pints. Ten percent of sales will be going to a fund to help persecuted members of the LGBT community in Uganda. 254 Fillmore St. at Haight.
