Amazing Pesach Products

I am amazed year after year by the kosher for passover faux products that manufacturers believe we can't live without for 8 days.... This year's shocking new product was found during my Monsey shopping trip - and was very timely considering the exchange of comments over the past few days on

The ingredients are: Water, maltodextrin, sugar, spices and seasoning, onion, monosodium glutamate, salt, vegetable stabilizer, citric acid, caramel color , less than 1% sodium benzoate

So for those of you who don't speak "food chemicals", that would be water, sugar, salt, flavorings, color and preservatives -

How do you say happy passover in chinese???

    but does it taste any good?

  2. I wasn't curious enough to buy it, sorry

  3. Did you see the ingredients? Is it anything other than saltwater with coloring?

  4. Basically salt water - some caramel coloring and some chemicals for texture, giving it some body. If I see it anywhere else, I'll take a picture of the opposite side with the ingredients

    what kind of "rice" do they make for peasch sushi?

  6. Sepharadim (and I think ashkenazim in Israel) use soy and rice - so sushi would be fine for pesach - Ashkenazim who have not adopted eating kitniyot (rice & legumes) could use quinoa instead of rice to make sushi...

    or just serve sashimi!
