interesting how some suppliers insist that there aren't any food shortages or supply chain delays... our clients know there are are and it seems Moisha's does as well.

Not sure what's so special about Israeli ice cream. Tenuva 9% Cottage cheese, Chermon, and Tzfatit have nothing that comes close in the US, but those have very short shelf life, so I doubt we'll see them anytime in the US.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I still miss the cottage cheese (not the 5%! Only 9%) more than any ice cream.

I break my proverbial teeth reading this stuff but still thoroughly enjoy it. Yiddish is such a rich language!

What’s a מאנגל? A shortage?

I think we should combine the “food shortage” and “how much weight everyone is gaining” threads.

You ask me as what?
The first part is coherent with what I've heard from a few store's managers. Some told me that they are waiting for a cheese delivery tomorrow.
