As Passover approaches, GKC loves to feature a few unique products that can help bring that touch of something special and delicious to your Passover Seder meals and general Passover experience. This week we bring you both decorative and delicious ideas.
1. 10 Plagues Coasters
We found these adorable 10 plagues coasters from the Quest Collection at www.cblfineart.com , where you can buy a set of four for $80. All 10 plagues, right under your 4 cups of wine! They are such a cute addition to the Seder table, and also helpful when trying to keep linens and table-tops sparkling clean throughout Passover – or at least throughout all four cups. They have the plagues depicted around the edges, and are 5” in diameter – prominent and bold. You can place one at each seat during the Seder as a spot for the wine glasses, or just bring them out for coffee and tea during dessert.
2. Osem Matzah Freshness Pouches
Freshness and Matzah? –There is nothing worse than stale unleavened bread. And all matzo and recipes with matzo taste better if its fresher and crunchier. Osem came up with an amazing concept this year. These freshness pouches are SO helpful, both for storing extra pieces of matzah once you’ve opened the box (normally crumbs get EVERYWHERE, so this will be a big help) and for keeping each piece crisp and crunchy. Osem is giving away a free freshness pouch with every 5-pound purchase of matzo, but we’re thinking of getting a few extra for ourselves this year and using them to store it all year long.
3. Osem Passover Mandel Rings
Mini-Mandels are amazing in soup all year round, but they’re especially exciting to have around on Passover as a familiar taste! These new Osem Passover Mandel Rings have a fun new ring-shape, which the kids love and admittedly, the adults do too. They don’t even know it’s a Passover product, so we’ll use them all year. They are gluten-free and are great for Kosher for Passover soups and snacks (we munch on them while we are cooking), just like the old-fashioned Mandels we all know and love.
4. Kessem Cheese N’ Rolls
Kessem Cheese N’Rolls: Back in action! We featured this product last year, and already spoke about how incredible they are: They look like chometz, they taste like chometz, but they are not! Crispy on the outside and soft and cheesy on the inside, they taste like a melted cheese roll. So why mention them again? Because this year, they’re back with NEW FLAVORS: Pizza, Fresh Garlic and Chives, Herb and Olive, and Jalapeno Cheddar. You really won’t believe these are Kosher for Passover. The kids adore them for their cheesy and bead-like textures, and the adults can’t get enough of them, either. Trust us, they’ll eat them right out of the oven – especially that yummy Pizza flavor. You can find them at www.kessemfoods.com or in most Kosher markets.
Don’t forget to check out our latest Great Product, the ElijahDrinks cup – The wine actually disappears as if Elijah were drinking it! And there’s a video to show you how it works, too.
Also, be sure to peruse this fantastic Passover wine list from Royal Wine Corp., with comprehensive information on sugar, alcohol, and mevushal status on Passover wines. It’s extremely helpful when choosing your wines for the Seder.
