Creamy, Delicious Charoset

Comment of the Week

(Ravi Joshi/Tablet Magazine)

Winner gets a free Nextbook Press book appropriate to his or her comment if he or she emails me at with his or her mailing address.

This week’s winner is Elli, who noted that one of our Jewish Ben & Jerry’s flavors was funny in part because it’s true: “You joke,” she said, in reference to “Charoset the Mostest,” “but B&J in Israel has just unveiled charoset flavored ice cream in time for Pesach.” And lo! The Times of Israel reports that it’s “vanilla-based with apples and cinnamon, and lots of walnuts. It is definitely premium ice cream and quite tasty, but it is not very charoset-y.” In fact! The writer is one Elli Fischer, and he cites me. Hrmmmm.

Elli gets a copy of Nextbook Press’ Hillel: If Not Now, When? by Rabbi Joseph Telushkin, because you eat charoset right before you eat the subject’s eponymous sandwich. He also gets a great blog post.
