Pesach Soda/Shamrock Shake

Off the Broiler caught my eye with two different posts. The first is about Kosher for Pesach coke.

Kosher for Passover Coke: Its the Real Thing Baby

For many of us this isn’t all that much of a novelty, but it grabbed me because it reminded of a post I want to write.

Jews who observe Pesach have to adjust our regular diets to comply with the laws surrounding the holiday. In many homes the seders are well planned, elaborate meals that are a tremendous pleasure to eat. Sometimes the meals that come in between are not so well planned so one finds all sorts of culinary challenges.

Tied into this is the effort made by some in the food industry to create Pesadich food products that resemble their leavened brothers. In recent years I have noticed that they seem to be having more success. The end result is that there is less of a distinction between the two. This begs the question of whether this is a good or bad thing. But like I said that is a post for a different time.

The next post that caught my eye is about the Shamrock Shake. If you have kept Kosher your entire life this might not be of any interest to you whatsoever, but for me it is something that brings back warm memories. My grandfather ZL used to take me to get one of these fabled shakes. Here is the link:

    It sure does taste different.

    Pesach coke tastes much better; the difference is very noticable. I look forward to it all year. It’s our 2nd-most important Pesach purchase after shmura matza.

    I think Passover Coke tastes better, ’cause they use real sugar and no corn syrup. It’s a lot more like what we get over here in Israel, too.

    I also blogged about the Passover Coke. GMTA!
