Sweet Kishka?

Does anyone know of any kishka that has a sweet flavor to it? I tried one at Kosher Castle in Monsey a few years ago and they say they make it themselves -- I'd be curious to know if there is one that is made that is more widely available.

  1. Anyone know if this place is still around and do they still make their own Kishka. I had great kishka at the now closed Moshavi in Livingston, and have been looking for "unique to a location" i.e. not mass produced, kishka since.

      In Chicago Romanian Kosher Sausage makes an excellent Kishke - however it is the savory variety -

    2. Actual kishka as opposed to someone's sweet-potato-ey simulation of kishka? Odd.

        Yeah. Odd. But some people prefer simulated kishkas.

      2. I'm looking for a brand that can be store-bought, by the way. Not just a restaurant purchase. Any ideas?

        1. International glatt(chaimowitz) kishka is sweet and spicy.

          1. What is "sweet" kishka? I've made the "fake" kishka from Tam Tam crackers which tastes a lot like the kishka of my childhood, but I've never even heard of a sweet variety. What is it made of?

              If I knew, I might make it myself. I just know it's sweeter than the store bought kinds. Thanks to Joe for your answer, btw. I'll try that.
