Shmurah Matzo Recommendations -- It's that time of the year...

A freilichen Purim to all!

Looking for tastiest, crispest, freshest, etc., etc. I have found many brands are good one year and not so good the next. I used to think Shatzer was the bomb but then found them to be a bit cardboard-like. Then I tried Pupa-Tzelem, which were reportedly thin and crispy. Again, inconsistent from year to year.

Also, any suggestions for Brooklyn stores that carry a variety of brands? Are their prices better than buying direct from the bakery?

  1. I've had Chareidim for the last couple of years and it's been quite good.

      I wish we could get Chareidim down here, we are limited to the Chabard Matzo.

    2. Satmar...seriously...won a taste test at the hotel a few years ago.

        And, for us, Floridians, who do we get it

      2. I always thought shatzer was a good bang for the buck since most the matzot were NOT broken

            We have used it in the past few years. It is almost as good as Tzeleh Pupa,thin and crispy.

              We like this matzo very much , especially the whole wheat.

            1. i basically stick to whole wheat boro park but the one with tartikov hashgacha was the tastiest ive had, although its been a couple years since i had it.
