    1. The Toaster Pastries from Nature's Path are still around, plus now Kellogg's has introduced "Go-Tarts" which have a hashgacha on them (KD...all Kellogg's stuff is under the Vaad of Massachusetts / Rabbinical Council of New England). They're like a Pop Tart bar, not bad :)

        Many Kellogg's products are under the KVH, however for Kellogg's (as opposed to everything else) the KVH does not put their symbol on the product and just uses a K or KD (dairy). I know of people who were able to get answers from the KVH as to which products they supervise.

      2. I have had both the Tradition and Nature's Path brand. They are not as good as the non-kosher Poptarts, which I had many years ago as a child before becoming kosher. Those were great. I wish the taste of the kosher "poptarts" could be better replicated.

              Tradition chicken soup used to be good, but a few years ago they changed the recipe, and they're not much good now. So if they had a good thing and mucked it up, I wouldn't bother with something they never got right in the first place.

                So tell Tradition Foods that you feel the new stuff is dreck, and maybe they'll change it. I know the owner, and he seems interested in producing quality product.

                  It's been nearly 3.5 years since this post you replied to was made, ganeden. Just saying that maybe this is no longer an issue.

                  However, if you know the owner, please tell him that the noodles are too long and that he should cut them before packaging them. I hate having noodles burning my chin!

                  1. re: ganeden

                    Well, tell him that the chicken soup with the old recipe, from when the styrofoam cups were wrapped in plastic, was much better than the new one. Since Tradition changed the recipe, I've switched to using Gefen soups.

          2. Tradition soup was never chicken - it was chicken flavored, but always pareve.

            1. If you yearn for the real thing, write a letter to Kellogg's. The unfrosted Pop Tarts do not contain gelatin and therefore, theoretically, could become supervised kosher. Tradition Tarts (extinct) and Nature's Tarts were/are not proper substitutes.
