Mallowmars replacement or Krembo

Is Krembo sold anywhere in NY? I just went through all the stores in Teaneck and could find it.

Alternatively, what would be a good replacement for Mallomars?

  1. Some of the Israeli grocery stories (the ones with dried fruit and nuts in the windows) sell Krembo. Carmel on 108 street in Forest Hills Queens has them. However, believe it or not, Krembo is seasonal. They are usually available only in the late fall and winter. In the summer the heat ruins the texture. (There is a wikipedia article on this.) They should be available in a few weeks.

    1. I haven't had a Mallomar in 30 years, I don't think any good kosher replacements exist.

      thank G-d Milky Ways became kosher , there only so much sacrifice a BT could make ;-)

        For a few years, many years ago, there was a kosher brand that made an almost-exact duplication of Mallomars, but those disappeared at least 10-15 years ago. Man, they were good!

          I am thinking that it was the Paskes brand.

            Yes, that does seem right. Why would they have stopped making them; they were so good!

      2. i've usually seen it in brooklyn in the israeli markets,generally along kings highway.

          Also the Tomato King place across from Shoprite. But you'll have to wait until the season starts.

        2. I think Fairway and Kosher Marketplace have it.

          1. They are a seasonal item, usually available in the fall and winter months. Holyland Market on St. Marks in Manhattan carries them, as does Mountain Fruit in Brooklyn and Tomer's Gourmet/Jerusalem in Cedarhurst, NY.
