                which brand of gefilte fish?

                btw, I assume this was one of the frozen brands and we're not talking about fresh gefilte fish

          1. A couple of months ago, I was wondering about this myself. I asked and it seems that the whitefish is extremely expensive. The suppliers are paying more and hiking up the prices and so it goes down the line. Now, of course, it's Pesach time so you will be paying more for everything for absolutely no reason at all.

              One reason - greed, and because they can get away with it.
