Passover Foods That Just Don't Work

My wife recently purchased for Passover two foods that are desgined to simulate chametz foods but just don't quite make it: Kosher for Passover frozen pizza and macaroni and cheese. Needless to say, I let my wife and kids be the guinea pigs for those and needless to say, they didn't go over very well (or down, for that matter). As my friend put it, "You can't go for eight days without a pizza?"


  • I have completely given up on the idea of buying the ersatz chametz and now stick pretty much to lots of fruits and veggies. I usually lose a couple of pounds and my tummy doesn't hurt. I agree with you that the store bought stuff in nearly inedible.

  • They could just sell "Pesach in a bag," a week's worth of intravenous feedings with all the nutrients one would expect from a normal week's worth of pizza and hamburgers and chips, but without the chametz. And, importantly, with a nice dose of sedative that should last the full week.

    Just kidding. I'm actually almost getting used to it.

  • To tell the truth, some "Pesach food" is quite good. I think the passover cake mixes result in a good cake. And I'm not a cake person. Some cookies are not bad either.
    But there are several products out there where you just shake your head and say to yourself, "Why do they even bother?" You know it can't turn out well. You know they are going to charge $$$ for it (yes, that Passover pizza was not cheap).
    Like "Matzanola", the Pesach equivelant of granola. I mean come on! Broken pieces of matzah with goo in a bar shape cannot even roughly simulate Nature Valley's rest of the year's offerings.
