Good find.

Plastic cups in the Jewish stores are 100 for $1.00-$1.50.

We use those in our house and often get them under a buck for 100 cups, but they are 7 or 8 oz cups and they are pretty flimsy.

These are twice the size and appear to be much more solid - like the kind of cups you would see in a party city store.

Am getting an email from Iberia saying that if you buy seats in advance its cheaper than at the airport.

Do you have to buy a seat regardless?

It's not a costumer's mistake if the company clearly says that ALL their products are Kosher and it turns out this is not.
The link is to the Salted Caramel while the S'mores is much more expensive at $13.99.

The Amazon ad does not say that it is kosher (but you are right about the Salted Caramel, my bad).

No, not this particular one.
But based on the company it does have an Hashgacha. While I wouldn't rely on them to EAT it, I definitely would take a chance to order it.

Agree - without an OU on the label or an LOC from the OU, I would not eat it. But I also don't like asking Amazon to return anything based on a lack of hashgacha as that really seems like something that is more of a consumer mistake than their mistake.

BTW - the posted link shows that this is a smores flavor. Any time that marshmallow is involved you need to wonder about whether there is a reason that the specific product has no hashgacha (even if others do).

You don't see the back on the individual package. How do you know it doesn't have an OU.

I'm not really understanding this - have you seen this with an OU on it? If so, I have no problem ordering it based on your say so.

But if you have not seen this with an OU then I dont want to order it and then have to deal with returning it if it shows up without a hashgacha.

No symbol on the packaging in the amazon link

That was why I asked - I did not see anything in the Amazon site pictures of the packaging or on theirs.

Is this certified kosher?

dont need customer service , just cheap books

Ordered from them in December with a promised receipt date for 7-10 days later.

Book was meant as a gift and needed to be there by the 10th day.

Book came eight days after the promised date (18 days after I ordered and over a week after I needed it).

There was no tracking from Alibris so I had no way of knowing when it was coming.

Customer service was horrendous as I kept getting a canned response which did not actually answer any of the questions that I had.

They refunded the ship fee when it did not come by the promise date.

I later learned when I got the package and saw the ship label that there was tracking (ALIBRIS just did not have it) and that the item did not actually ship until after they had refunded me the ship fee.

I would have said ALIBRIS but their customer service lately has gone into the toilet.

Am doing the same as the person who started this post (we are flying as 4 people) and am wondering if I should pay the 17(middle) 35 (window/aisle) to sit together.

Looking to find out anyone's experience when they arrived at the airport without buying seats in advance.

Anyone have a decent experience with these?
