GKC loves hearing about new products, especially from some of our favorite companies. So what’s new this year or better than ever?
I love the creative and thoughtful matzah products that Osem developed. They definitely asked consumers what they wanted and responded with just what we ordered. My favorites?
Osem Sandwich Matzah Strips. So smart! Perforated matzah for easy, perfect break apart pieces and even sandwich making. No more wasted pieces or crazy sized sandwhiches. This makes matzah on the go much more manageable.
Osem Thin Matzah original and whole wheat. By the time the seders are over, we welcome a lighter matzah for matzah pizza, matzah lasagna or just plain eating. It’s thin and light but still crunchy and flavorful.
Do you eat kitniyos? If yes, you and your kids are in luck! Bamba by Osem has new flavors and they already won awards for best new snack product at Kosherfest. Kids and adults love them. Strawberry and halvah Sesame Cream both come in snack packs and large bags. I loved the Popco Butterscoth flavored Corn snack that I tried at Kosherfest. Its like a kettle corn with butterscotch flavoring.
A few other treats we love from friends at Mehadrin…
Kosher for Passover 1% Yogurts from Mehadrin. I have personally been waiting for this. Great flavors without all the excess calories and fat of regular yogurts and real fruit flavor.
And, my kids cannot live without their favorite…Leben! Treat, snack, breakfast, or even dessert, sweet and creamy and easy to love.

What wine should I be drinking at my Seder? It’s a common question, but one that is impossible to answer. It depends on people’s personal preference, their budget, whether they are seeking low alcohol wines or not, if they want to try something new to market, or even if a person is seeking that “trophy”…
