most interesting product for passover

What is the most interesting product found so far doing your shopping at pomegranate, brach's etc? I heard about Laromme "white bread" but have not yet seen it

    1. May not be too interesting for most, but for me, being that I am on Atkins, finding Gefen Sugar Free Chocolate flavored syrup w/Splenda. 0 Calories, 0 carbs, Kosher for Pesach no less, was a find. I couldn't find this all year, not mention for Pesach. I will stock up on this for all year use, unless I can get a commitment from Gourmet Glatt that they will carry it all year round.

        What's the big deal about this? There are lots of sugar free chocolate syrups. Walden Farms, even Hershey's, makes this product. And there are probably brands that cater to diabetics in that area of the supermarket, but luckily I don't know too much about those brands. There's no reason NOT to use Gefen, but it's hardly a chidish.

          Nothing special about Gefen. I guess this is more about me not finding zero carb chocolate syrup at Brachs. Could be that Gourmet Glatt (and others) carry them all year. The big problem that I have with Brachs is that they don't carry as much of the "specialty" items. As an example, Heinz has a one carb ketchup. I have to go to Gourmet Glatt or Supersol to buy it. I asked them once at Brachs and they insisted that it was discontinued therefore they don't carry it. It looks like I had better do more shopping at multiple stores..

            was in teaneck saw Aviv kosher for passover cakes/cookies. If they are products by the company I saw and tasted at kosherfest we are in for a treat. I also saw several types of balsamic vinegar and I saw 0 calorie packets of sugar ala splenda

      2. I am in Brooklyn, NY. Does anyone know where I can find Rakusen matzoh's? I think they are just the best and haven't found them anywhere yet. Thanks!

        1. In Fairway I saw mini goat cheese balls rolled in spices. I think it was a dozen to a tray for $8. Expensive, but really pretty to serve if you're having company for a dairy meal. Some were rolled in dill, others in nuts, some in paprika.

            We have had these goat cheese balls in the past. Delicious (though some varieties were a tad dry), and cholev Yisroel to boot. [I believe they come from a moshav in Israel.] I highly recommend them!

            1. re: midasgold

              The package definitely said imported from Israel. Thanks for the recommendation- I'll buy them next time I'm at Fairway.

              1. re: cheesecake17

                Please let us know if you like them as much as we did, Cheesecake. Again, the only minor caveat is that some of the varieties were a bit dry... but that is a matter of personal preference. Enjoy!

                1. re: midasgold

                  I usually love goat cheese, and the dryness doesn't bother me. The only problem is storing the leftovers as I'm the only one in the house that eats goat cheese.

            2. re: cheesecake17

              i have seen that before-it is kadurim by barkanit

            3. Along the lines of 'white bread' I saw frozen kosher l'pesach Pizza
