Best Tasting Brand of Matzoh

Looking to see if I can find a consensus of opinion on the best tasting brand of matzoh (not shmura) for Pesach. Please weigh in with your favorite brand. Thanks!

      Charedim is the best for shmura, but OP was asking for NON smurah. I too responded with Charedim as a knee jerk reaction, but edited my post when I re-read OP.

        all the machine matzah tastes like cardboard to me

        reminds me of the story where a guy is eating a matzah in the park and sees a blind man sitting on other end the bench. feeling sorry for him he hands a matzah and the blind guy starts to feel the matzah and finally says "who wrote this garbage"

          Well it is after all "the bread of affliction", should go well with the marror :)

          Nice story by the way!

        I grew up on streits and didnt even want to taste anything else as an adult, then i tasted yehuda, and theres no question, soething abt it just tastes fresher

        1. re: queenscook

          We're also a Streits family. I'll give Yehuda a try, but it would be awfully hard to give up those pink boxes.

          Who is it who does the bran matzah? Osem? That was the first box to disappear.

          1. re: MartyB

            For machine made IMHO nothing beats Yehuda -

          2. Streits and Rakusen's (UK) for tea-sized.

            1. See last year's reviews here:
              Seems many concur with the Yehuda brand.
