kosher at the fancy food show

  • 4

We had a great time at the Fancy food show. The big kosher news was that Jelly Belly was going to be certified kosher by the OU. That should be exciting., It will include all their products not only their jelly beans. There were lots of exciting products around at the show and here is my report.



FROZEN DESSERTS
Choctal

This company lets you experience chocolate in 4 different ways using cocoa beans from 4 different countries including: Borneo, Costa Rica, Ghana and San dominican. They wach taste different. They also have a vanilla using vanilla beans from Madagascar. More vanillas and chocolate ice creams to come.

Kulfi ice cream

Deliciously rich and creamy, Kool Freeze Kulfi is an exotic frozen dessert that has its origins in southern Asia. It is similar to ice cream but creamier, with a blend of unique eastern flavors. These ethnic flavors were directly influenced by Persian civilization. The Mughal Emperors introduced Kulfi to the Indian subcontinent, where it was originally mixed in clay pots, then frozen in molds, using ice brought down from the HimalayasFlavors include: Chikoo, Coconut,Faluda, Malai , Mango, Pistachio, Rose, Saffron, and Strawberry.

CHOCOLATE/CONFECTION
Bissingers

Bissingers also just became kosher certified under the OU. The name "Bissinger" has long been linked to fine confections. The Bissinger family began creating their fine delicacies in 17th-century Paris, and at that time European nobility, heads of state, Ludwig of Bavaria and the Rothschilds were all loyal Bissinger enthusiasts. Bissinger's confections were once enjoyed by King Louis XIV and were used as a gift by Napoleon Bonaparte to his beloved Josephine upon his return from battle. In fact, Karl Frederic Bissinger, the company's namesake, was named the Confiseur Imperial, or "Candy Maker of the Empire," for excellence in the confectionery arts by Emperor Louis Napoleon.

Karl Bissinger left France in 1845, bringing his loyal master candy maker and all of the Bissinger family candy making secrets to the United States near Cincinnati, Ohio. In 1927, his son, also named Karl, opened the Bissinger candy making kitchens and first Bissinger shop in Saint Louis on McPherson Avenue.

Seasoned Skewers
Certified kosher by OU

Real Salt


Near the small town of Redmond, in central Utah, approximately 200 miles south of Salt Lake City, they carefully extract this salt from deep within the earth, and bring it to you in its pure, natural state–without any additives, chemicals, or heat processing. This is RealSalt®, full of flavor and natural goodness–the way salt was meant to be savored! Compared to RealSalt brand salt, regular “table salts” and also many sea salts appear stark white because they have undergone harsh bleaching and refining. By contrast, RealSalt is extracted from deep within the earth, crushed, screened, and packaged without any bleaching or refining. RealSalt’s unique “pinkish” appearance and flecks of color come from more than 50 natural trace minerals, including iodine. I could taste the difference between table salt and Real Salt.

      I am waiting for Kosher chicken rinds to be available as a gourmet kosher snack food.

      1. re: lomez

        I do not think Gribenes will sell as a product name - probably would have to call em' chicken cracklings-

        1. re: weinstein5
