I am looking for a Parver dark chocolate mini chunks or chips. Now that Whole Foods discontinued their dark chocolate mini chunks, I am stuck using sub-par kosher brands. Any ideas?

I finally managed to get my hands on the new Enjoy Life dark chocolate morsels -- 69%, vs. 70% for the Whole Foods chunks. It's pretty good.

Are you talking about the Mega Chunks? They've been out for a while, I've had them; not bad, but the Whole Foods chunks were much better. Also, these are about four times the size of the Whole Foods chunks.

I believe Chocolate Dream also makes pareve chips. (I stocked up on the Whole Foods chunks, but I'm going through them alarmingly quickly...)

Garam Masala Spice

Whole Foods' house brand (I think that's what it is -- but I definitely bought it in Whole Foods) has a KSA.

Brooklyn Yogurt Factory doesn't appear to be functional yet, though it IS there. I'm going to have to try this place one of these days!

Anyone baking schlissel challah?

Do it every year, but with a different recipe... this one looks like it might be a keeper. I usually do both a key shape and the key wrapped in foil, but I forgot to make the key shape this year.

Ciao Bella ice cream/yogurt/sorbet moving to OU

It's because of chalav Yisrael concerns. The OU doesn't actually use a DE designation... but it doesn't matter to me, because unless it's marked pareve, I won't eat it.

I HATE it when that happens. I won't eat it even if it's just dairy equipment, so that makes me mad.

Tropical Shalach Manot?

I did this theme one year... I don't remember exactly what was included in it, though! Pineapple, banana, macadamia nuts, and coconut milk (those little cartons made by So Delicious) were in there for sure.

Does this exist? If so, does anyone know where I can find it?

Pareve half and half / heavy cream

So happy to hear that -- because I realized I never mentioned its intended usage, and I wanted to make ice cream with it (the recipe included with the ice cream maker calls for half and half + heavy cream, but I don't want it to be dairy).

Pareve half and half / heavy cream

I think I've seen this before -- not in a while, though. Will keep an eye out for it! Thanks

Pareve half and half / heavy cream

Are there any pareve certified alternatives for half & half and heavy cream? I know that Silk creamer can be used as a half & half substitute, but it's OUD.

Greek Yogurt

I'm 99.9% sure it doesn't, since I've been trying in vain to find it for years. I'm sure it won't be the same, but there's a pareve coconut milk Greek yogurt hitting store shelves soon.

Pareve peanut butter chips

I know there have been posts about this in the past, but I'm hoping things have changed since then... the only kosher peanut butter chips I can find are Sunspire, and they're OUD. Are there any pareve options out there?

Teff?

I tried the pudding recipe on the back of the bag, but I think I'm going to try sprouting it. I have no idea if it will work, but I don't see why it shouldn't...

I second the Whole Foods; Tribeca carries it, as well.

Teff?

I actually called Back to the Land in Brooklyn and asked whether they carry it, and they said that they do... I guess I'll have to find my way there one of these days.

Re: the hashgacha, I probably wouldn't mind as much if raw grains were the only thing produced in that factory. But if it's manufactured on shared equipment (as is the case with the brand I can easily find), I'm just not comfortable with it.

Teff?

Raw teff, I'm told, doesn't NEED to have a hechsher... but if I know that there's an option out there that DOES have one, I'd rather use it.

Teff?

The only kosher brand I know of is Bob's Red Mill, and I can't find it in any stores... I don't particularly care to pay nearly $15 to have it shipped to me. Anyone know where I can find this (or another kosher brand) in the NYC area?
