  • Mont Blanc Oreos and Others from Mitsuwa!

    It seems like Japanese Oreo Soft Cookies have been really getting in on the special flavors lately. This past weekend at the NJ Mitsuwa I came across these.

  • Holiday Cookies (repost)!

    Traditionally on Chanukah Jews eat fried foods (like Potato Latkes) to represent the miracle of the oil lasting miraculously long. So sweets-wise a traditional food is jelly-filled donuts or Sufganiyot.

  • Fancy Food Show 2009!

      This being my second Fancy Food Show, I learned from last year and started from the lower floor where there were more sweets and less chance of being distracted by all the (seemingly thousands of) different types of cheeses and olives on the third floor. Now that’s what I call a real cheese cake!

  • Oh! Nuts – an inside look at a kosher candy store!

    For those who observe Passover, kosher for Passover candy can bring a lot of fond memories. Raspberry jelly rings, macaroons, fruit slices, that Barton’s chocolate you were encouraged to sell to your elders every year (just like girl scout cookies!).
