Okay, okay, I know Purim isn't even here yet but has anyone seen anything interesting, new, and different for Passover 2012?

      Ugh, the Passover display in our supermarket came out a few weeks ago, and people are already arranging seder invitations. Can't we get through Purim yet, or at least Lag B'Omer before the matza ball soup mix (regular and low sodium) comes out? I guess it's like the stores going red and green on Labor Day.

          She mean Tu b'Shvat, or maybe Rosh Chodesh Adar - See how stressed out Pesach makes her?

            Yup, I did mean Tu b'Shvat. It's not just the almond tree that's blooming (reference to Tu b'Shvat song,) the supermarket is sprouting delicacies like Passover cotton candy.

              There are only a very few times when I'm glad that I live in a kosher wasteland. This would be one of them.

                Not only in the US. I just came back from London and In Tesco, one of the major supermarkets, they have a whole section of Pesach products with full shelves, and its already been there for almost two weeks.

                  And all the sugary non-gebrokhts cakes and cookies are being marketed as "Gluten-Free." Which they are. Means the prices won't go down for the end days.

                      Only thing that caught my eye was Nutella from Israel. I don't think I have ever seen that in the US. Only problem is, and this is consistent with the stuff from Israel which only has Hebrew is for Kitniot eaters only.
                      Kitniot is not a problem for me as I am Sephardic, but I really have not found anything that is Kitniot that I really need during Pesach. If single malt scotch was Kitniot, that would be something............

                        Time to find a certified Corn Whiskey.

                          Koval Distillery in Chicago makes a number of Kosher spirits, including a millet-based whiskey. But no Kitniot certification that I know of...yet.

                            be careful with products from Israel that say kosher for passover-they may only be good for people who eat kitniyot
