Amongst the delicious treats that have found their way to our office over the past few weeks are two items sure to thrill Chalav Yisrael/Pas Yisrael eaters.

Paskesz (Manchester Beis Din, dairy and parve) has introduced four new cookies that will please the palate and delight the senses. Manufactured in Holland, these cookies won a best new product award at Kosherfest 2004. The smell of a freshly baked apple pie will fill the room when you open a bag of the parve Apple Crumble bars. The Milk Chips chocolate chip cookies rival a very famous chocolate chip cookie and come out ahead. A definite favorite in our home where snacking is a hobby – the only drawback is that they are dairy. They also have parve double chocolate chip cookies and brownie bars. All Paskesz products can be found in your local kosher grocery or in the kosher aisle of most major supermarkets. You can also visit them on the web at paskesz.com.

Schmerling’s of Switzerland (Taam Tov Foods, I.R.G., of Zurich parve and dairy) recently introduced a wonderful line of sugar free chocolates. Being a weight conscious person, I have sampled many different brands of sugar-free chocolate, so I consider myself to be somewhat of a maven. I can honestly say that this is the best I have ever tasted. The Swiss milk chocolate (Lait on the label) is delicious with such a rich and creamy taste that you’ll double check the label before believing it’s sugar-free.

The bar was finished very quickly in our office and many asked for seconds. As one taster put it, “all that’s missing is a nice cold cup of milk.” The two other flavors are Blanc – a deliciously creamy white chocolate and the Noir – a very nice dark parve chocolate. All Schmerling chocolates are available in your local kosher grocery and major supermarkets and on the web at schmerling.com


Misuse Of ‘Kosher Deli’ Plagues Kosher Consumers

Consumers looking for kosher certified products are often misled by such labels as ”kosher style,” ”kosher deli,” or even ”kosher” (k) without any certification symbols or rabbis, a Kosher Today survey revealed. The problem, say kosher certification agencies, is that these claims are made precisely because they wish to attract consumers of kosher products. A new Wegmans mega supermarket that opened in Ocean Township, N.J. earlier this month promoted its kosher deli, but the store manager said that it was not kosher certified. “We use all kosher ingredients, but we have a sign that it is not kosher certified. This is true in many Wegmans stores that advertise kosher style,” the manager said. These same stores often carry many of the well-known kosher brands in their stores. Particularly worrisome, say kosher food sources, is the growing popularity of the kosher deli, which may use equipment that mixes milk and dairy and uses non-certified products, but yet lulls consumers to believe that they are actually buying kosher. “Having pastrami on club may be an “in” thing these days, but that doesn’t make the food kosher,” said one rabbi who was one of several consumers to alert Kosher Today to the non-certified kosher deli at the new Wegman’s.
