Does anyone know if there is some type of fruit snack that is Kosher for Passover? Please someone say there is such an animal, PLEASE!

    you mean like a fruit roll up type thing?

    i didnt see it last year, but the year before i bought one made by gedila (sp?)

    it was very weird, didnt taste bad, but the consistency was funny, maybe the lack of corn syrup is the problem?

    i also know there were a few brands in the sfardi markets, but i have no idea if they were kitniyot

      I know you're probably looking for Gushers type of snacks, but there are always those sugar coated fruit slices/wedges (these: http://www.bernstein.to/uploaded_imag...)

        I hardly think these are interchangeable; the idea that they have any actual fruit in them is pretty laughable, actually.

          oh I agree, I hate the slices, but my little guy loves them.

        I never buy this stuff, so I don't know what is available commercially, but it is possible to make your own. Google "fruit leather recipe" or "fruit roll ups recipe," you'll find any number of recipes.

          My husband thinks that Paskesz made a Pesachdik fruit leather last year.

          Thanks for all the replys. I will not try to make my own nor will I subject these kids to the slices - ICK! They may have to make due with marshmellows:)

            Pomegranate in brooklyn had several types of fruit leather/fruit wrinkle type snacks kosher for passover. I didn't find them to be all that bad, although there was a noticeable difference from the standard ones.
