Deals/Deal Requests / Re: Bulk chocolate chips
« on: March 04, 2019, 09:29:13 PM »
Hi, my wife does a lot of baking - anyone have recommendations for getting a good price on decent-to-good chocolate chips for a good price? Tried looking online, but even when buying 25-lb bags, price per ounce came out similar to my local grocery.

Real, all-natural, good-quality 45%-72%-cocoa chocolate chips can be $4.50 - $5 per pound in 5 lbs bulk bags of mini-chips, Mega Chunks, etc plus approx $18-$22 two-day shipping for 20-30lbs. minimum order via

Shame, food and prices were a classic. I hope they keep some of the old recipes.

Yes, I can still taste those famous, delicious fried Mozzarella-sticks and marinara-sauce dip that they served there. Hoping that they will keep that on the menu, as well.

Lakewood Bingo......getting ready for tomorrow iy"h

great photo. The big question is: "How large is the parking lot"? (The bklyn one is very small and tricky to navigate/pull out.)

Can this lot fit 50-70 vehicles?

Looks like the type of place that will have seasonal bargains, unique imports/deals, and may be good for stocking up for the household 1-3x per month.

For regular weekly shopping, possibly the same local Lakewood stores as usual.

Been discussed ad nauseum.

Breads and challah are ok pareve.

Food Is chai kosher, the pastries are cholov Stam.
They claim that the dairy food uses cy ingredients. But the kitchen is cholov Stam so no go for many.

There are 2 mashgichim there and all greens are washed and checked. Challah is taken and a Shomer Shabbat Jew lights the fires.

Checked the link. Says only Chai Kosher Hashgocha:
Posts a certificate link that does not show a certificate.
(Link -- no certificate:

We liked the honey whole wheat parve sourdough last visit. Perhaps the breads are baked in this separate parve kitchen?

New combined program announced:

interesting that they place "Sheraton" in the same league as Le Meridien and Marriott and Westin on the bottom of that page. Many Sheratons seem to be much lower in quality than the Westins, etc... in my experience.

I don't know the hashkacha, but when I go there for bread, it's still has oFrum looking people there. I think if you eat OU-D in general it's fine.  But I take no responsibility...

However, what about Kosher Parve breads/Challahs for Shabbos?

any kosher restaurants which are gluten free friendly?

Texas Kosher BBQ now also has a store called Kosher Palate.

Their fresh grilled smoked meats, brisket, and BBQ chicken are probably gluten-fee, in addition to many of their menu items. You can call them for more information. Website and phone number:
(469) 601-1002

I have a friend who will spend the next whole week in PIT for medical treatments but will have plenty of spare time.
Is there anything interesting or remarkable that they can do/ visit?

there are hiking/biking trails, some downtown/hockey arena spots. A Google-Pittsburgh location near the medical areas, and other tech spots. What field/age range -- maybe someone can show him some places. Can your friend have sushi, meat. any restrictions?

I am currently staying here and bought somebodyís free nights who is platinum. Upon checkin they told me that unless the person who is platinum member shows up to the hotel I wonít get any platinum benefits (i.e. room upgrade, free breakfast, 4pm late checkout).

I didnít put up a fight but is that accurate?

the guy who booked your reservation can call and add your name to the existing reservation, to explain that you will be arriving first and checking in first.

Youíre able to set your own tour time with micaela at Jewish roma walking tours if itís private (I set mine for 11:30am-1:30pm) so maybe you could work your schedule around specific times you want 🤷‍♂️

does this tour include the Great Synagogue and the museum on the lower level? (really fascinating)

The way the food is being hyped here, even this weirdo is looking forward to it  ;D.

Yup. We've decided to go that route.

BellaCarne is a good meat option, if that is what you prefer. (depending on specific/individual Kosher-meat-requirements). We enjoyed the beef-carpaccio, the steaks, and the wine-pairings when we went.

Did you do the Vatican Jewish tour?

Your itin is doable if you skip the Vatican, but you also miss some of the food options, which for us were right up there with the activities. Top notch milchig in Rome, though considering @Something Fishy is weird and hates all dairy, that's decidedly less of a draw.

majority will enjoy the kosher Gelato, the fresh hand-made pasta, the caprese, and Buffalo-cheese -- and many tourists (other than Dan) like the tiramisu at BaGhetto Milky, as well.
