Fruit Leather (Stretch Island Fruit, OK parve)
is a 100% natural snack. 100% natural means no
added sugar, no artificial colors or flavors, no fat and
cholesterol ¡? and great taste. The Wild Apple tastes
like a green apple, the Mucho Mango tastes like a slice
of mango, etc. But you get more than great taste and a
healthy snack. On each package of fruit leather is an
interesting humorous jingle about the flavor you are
about to eat, so you get something to read as well. For
Purim, include Stretch Island Fruit Leather in a box
with a bottle of water, a package of nuts and seeds
and call your Mishloach Manos “A Traveling Snack.”

YoCrunch (The Yofarm Company, OU dairy) is
a yogurt adored by both parent and child. What could
be better than serving your child a snack that is 99%
fat-free, healthy, and yet something that he will love
to eat? YoCrunch comes in a typical 6-oz yogurt
container with a special crunch-on-top section. The
toppings can be added to the yogurt, eaten separately
or saved for later. While all the combinations taste
great, the overwhelming favorite in this office was the
Cookies n'Cream, which is vanilla yogurt with Oreo
cookie crunch. YoCrunch can be found in your local
kosher grocery or supermarket. For a Purim twist, fill
a basket with a YoCrunch, a box of cereal and a small
carton of juice and make your Mishloach Manos

Polenta (San Gennaro Foods, Kof-K parve) is
an ancient Italian product similar to cornmeal mush.
Originally made from millet or spelt, and a staple of
the Roman soilder's diet, this product is now made
from corn and can be found in a variety of ethnic
dishes. Polenta is a great substitute for pasta, and is
higher in fiber as well. In our office, we fried it lightly
in a pan coated with cooking spray and then added
tomato sauce ¡? it was both delicious and filling. For
recipes visit www.polenta.net. Polenta comes in a
variety of flavors and can be found in your local super-
market. Please be sure to look for the Kof-K on the
packages before purchasing. For an interesting Purim
twist, shape the polenta into hamantashen before
frying and feast on a crunchy treat.
Have a very happy and safe Purim.
