this year's matzah meal

The matzah meal from Manischewitz this year was dark and not as good. Did anyone else notice this?

  1. No, but I wonder if there's some connection here. My mom bought a 5-lb. box of matzah at Wegman's, and noticed that the edges of the matzahs were very dark. NOT an altogether bad thing, actually. But she had apparently used her shopper's card with her purchase because she received a letter from Wegman's, saying that their entire shipment of Manischewitz matzah had burnt edges, and if she wanted to return them and get another brand, there'd be no problem doing so. So maybe Manischewitz baked their matzah longer than the required maximum of 18 minutes.

      does this mean they are not kosher?

      funnily enought my Manishewitz matzoh meal was lighter than usual - I fried some fish and ended up overcooking it because I could not get a golden colour to it.

        All five boxes of ours, bought in Carlsbad, had burnt edges. We're returning the unused portion.

          All of my boxes also had burnt edges!
