Baruch Hashem, every week brings us new products from Israel. I say Baruch Hashem, because the Israeli economy can use all the help we can give them. Whenever you can, remember to “buy Israel”!
This week you’ll find a wonderful new product on your grocer’s shelf: cake from Abadi’s Bakery. These delicious cakes are sugar-free, low in carbs, and high in fiber. I know what you’re thinking – with all that going for it, how does it taste? It tastes great. In our office, we tried the marble cake. I can safely say that within 10 minutes of being sliced, all the pieces had
been eaten. I took the vanilla cake home for the kids to try, and they loved it too. The cake is moist, with a slight buttery flavor – yet it is parve under both the OU and Badatz Yerushalayim. The cakes are distributed in the US by Kemach and come with the approval of the Jewish Diabetes Association on the package. Look for them in your local kosher grocery or the kosher section of your local supermarket. Coming soon are muffins in the same wonderful flavors.
* From our friends at Quality Frozen Foods come two items you may have seen on the shelf:
Kitov’s Honey BBQ flavored Tortilla Chips and Weinz Mini Bears. Both are musts for any home with kids where nosh is permitted. First the Mini Bears – these adorable bear cookies – come in three great flavors, chocolate, chocolate chip and honey graham. They are perfect for when you want just a little bit of something to nosh on. This wonderful company also offers kettle chips and mini sandwich cookies. The Kitov tortilla chips are part of full line of delicious
snacks that now include flavored licorice sticks. As always, products distributed by Quality can be found in your local kosher grocery and in the kosher section of your local supermarkets.
* Wolff’s Kasha Classics (The Birkett Mills, OU parve). Those you who love kasha and bow ties, but hate to patchka, will be thrilled with the latest addition to the Wolff’s product line. With a savory chicken flavor and incredible ease, you can create a low-fat delicious dish in ten minutes. My husband and son finished the pot and were clamoring for more before I had a chance to sit down at the table. You can find kasha classics and the whole Wolff’s line at Stop and Shop, Pathmark and Shoprite.
* Poppycock (Lincoln Snacks Co., OU dairy). What more needs to be said then popcorn, nuts and incredible glazes. How about Pecan Delight, Macadamia Coconut or Walnut Cashew – three scrumptious flavors of popcorn clusters. For over 40 years, Poppycock has been making mouths water and hearts sing with their incredible tastes and flavors. Made with all-natural ingredients, these savory sensations will delight sweet lovers of all ages. Look for them in your local grocery or supermarket.
* Gourmet Tortillas (Tumaro’s Inc., KSA parve). These low-fat, organic flour tortillas come in two different sizes and seven great flavors. We had the opportunity to try the sun-dried tomato and basil as well as the honey wheat. One we used to make great homemade pizza and the other for a tuna wrap – you decide which was which. Seriously though, all the
flavors are great. The tortillas are made with all natural ingredients and come in re-sealable bags for easy storage. You can find all Tumaro’s products at Stop and Shop.

week’s issue on how to submit recipes.
