Crembo in NYC

Where can I purchase Crembo, the fluffy Israeli marshmallow/chocolate cookie candy, in New York City? Also does anyone know whether their production is seasonal, for example its sister (American) marshmallow cookie is only produced 9 months per year?

  1. During the winter months Holy Land Market on St. Marks (Manhattan) carries it or it's cousin Manbo, as does Mountain Fruit on Avenue M (Brooklyn) and Tomer Gourmet/Jerusalem in Cedarhurst, Long Island.

    1. re: whitewater

      Thanks whitewater, I did go to Holy Land before the holiday and had some individual Crembos. They had the mocha and chocolate but no vanilla. Anyway, these examples were not quite as good as the ones I used to get years ago at the now-expired Village Shwarma which used to be next to the IFC. Perhaps not the best place for them--not refrigerated and a dry to stale texture-wize. Still, I really enjoyed the atmosphere of the scruffy shop right down to the apathetic help.

    2. I just saw them here in Queens at Wasserman's on Main Street. I presume the other local markets here must have them as well.

      1. Kosher Marketplace on Broadway (@ 91st) has them. The season goes through about the end of March.

        1. I saw them at the Tomato King (across from Shoprite). And yes, they are seasonal; they're only produced in winter.

          1. Does anyone know if Crembo is parve?
