Should I get hamentashcen at Butterflake?

I need to get a healthy platter of hamentaschen for my DH's office. Should I splurge for Butterflake or Korn's?

Any suggestions for a Teaneck purchase are welcome

    I wish I could recommend either but both are substandard. Korn's is a rock-hard, super crumbly pastry with a small amount of very-artificial tasting filling. Butterflake is better but still a poor example of what a hamentash should be.

      I can't speak to Butterflake's hamantaschen, but I just had their cupcakes and found them somewhat lacking.

        Thanks to the snowstorm and both cars being out of whack...he went it in with nothing. I will say the Oberlanders I had at a friends house were pretty good.

          We had Butterflake at our shul party. They were good, not great.

            Must admit, too lazy to bake this year and picked up the Oberlanders (2 packages for $5) at the local Stop N Shop supermarket. Thought they were excellent for packaged.

          I dont know about how "healthy" Hamentashen will be but I bought the ones from Zaydies and everyone in the fam said they were the best they ever had.

          As all fallback, I always thought the Riesmans ones were pretty good.

            I toss the Riesman's ones uneaten, but I suppose different strokes for different folks.
