In Part 1 of my review of Passover products, I focused on the more healthful stuff: beets and couscous, the latter of which I used as a carbohydrate base for a tofu scramble.
But sometimes you feel like a snack and just because you can't have any hametz on hand doesn't mean noshing isn't an option. I mean, c'mon, do ya expect me to nibble on parsley while watching House of Cards?
Cue the Gefen Kartofele, i.e., kosher for passover potato crisps that also happen to be gluten-free. The original flavor is mild, fairly addictive, and reminded me of a more buttery style of oyster cracker. Of course, this shiksa's first association upon tasting the crisps would be something entirely non-kosher like shellfish.
First prize, however, in the kosher snack category goes to Glick's Coconut Macaroons. I will admit I may be biased given my penchant for sweet over savory, but I nevertheless stick by ranking as the moist texture and pure, not over-sweet coconut flavor was just terrific. A generous layer of dark chocolate and the dusting of sea salt didn't hurt either. My one suggestion: make 'em bigger, Glick's!
