They told me.
Ahh. You can't trust them.
The thing with the hamster is that running on the wheel is actually what it is trying to do.

Not so simple to do especially when there are reasons aside from kosher for him to lie.

Open the cabinets under the counters in the hotel breakfast area, there's a decent chance that's where they keep the refills

Are all certified vegan products kosher even without a hechsher?
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

There is no real rules to what can be called vegan.

And no one is checking for bugs even if it is vegan.

That would only be relevant if it contains bug sensitive ingredients and arguably only if it is not cooked.

Monterrey Kosher.
Using your g-d given right of stupidity is an option, not a requirement. Please use sparingly.

Is it just coffee and vodka or are they using coffee flavoring?
