    Hi!

    You can get them directly from www.biscoff.com

    I would like a little help from you if you have the time. A few weeks ago I found my biological father through Genes Reunited - we haven't been in contact for 40 years. It turns out he remarried after my Mum and I have a younger sister, nephew and niece. All of them were raised Jewish and kosher. I know that they celebrate Hannukah (apologies if I spell anything wrong). I very much want to find some little edible treats to add to the presents for the children (my niece is 12 and my nephew is 9). They are living in New York while I am British living in Texas so perhaps you could point me in the direction of some good websites or ideas???

    I really appreciate your time. Many thanks!

    Olwen

      Many choices online, some with prepared baskets, others with specialty products. You can start here:

      However, this is a personal favorite that kids (and adults) will love:

      Are they dairy or parve?

        A quick scan of the ingredients suggests they should be pareve, but can't tell without checking the certification.

          i believe they are pareve-I got a copy of the certification and it says: it is kosher under badatz chog chasam sofer pareve, pas yisrael under rabbi weber, antwerp belgium

        Are these the cookies served on El Al? If so, I don't remember them being anything out of the ordinary. What's special about them?

          If you fly United at breakfast time, domestic, these the the brown sugar sort of bisquit that is served. They are quite good. In Florida you can find them at Publix and in Illinois they are in Dominics.

              Yes, but are the Walgreen's/Dominick's version kosher? How come only some of them have a hechsher?

                I'll check the package when I go back to Walgreen's. This site has the kosher ones:

                  If I recall correctly, the ones on United Airlines are "0116: BISCOFF WITH SUNNY COFFEE WRAPPER", which is not the kosher variety. Pity.

          Not being familiar with Belgium kosher certification, I send Biscoff an E-mail asking them about the Kashrut of their products.
          I'll keep you posted of the answer
