Interesting, never heard of it.
It is מנהג הפשוט in Lubavitch, so first one follows the minhag, and then one can start looking up mekoiros, if really interested.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Have you ever tasted Satmar Broadway Matzah?

You'd be surprised. By far better than CH.

My FIL has Chareidim. Its tasteless.
I make my chaburah matzos there. Definitely delicious. Little bit on the thick side though. They have taste tests each year and make it a mix of whole wheat and regular flour to get the best taste for that years flour.
I'm not who you think I am.

Chaburah?
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

How much do you spend on wine? Crazy scam, isn't it? I'm sure you only drink a revi'is for kiddush each week, and the Daled Kosos on Pesach. You wouldn't want to support that scammy industry, would you?

Yes and no, if you live in a social stigma type life where not having a status bottle of wine would shame you.. then yes.

So what, people who dont like wine, do not go and buy the most expensive bottle for kidush! I oppose people paying high $ on wines and have worked for years to try to reduce costs

btw royal owns rashi, keser, farbrengen and produces 3$ wines and 100$ wines.. thats fair imho.

Chareidim is the thinnest matza by far, but not very tasty, even their ww, which is a bit better.
Pupa is thicker, but tastes better, its a bit well done/crispy.
Shatzer I never had.

Every year i have all 3.
Chareidim thinner than Pupa Tzelem.(thus Chareidim is the Thinnest)
Pupa Tzelem tastier and thinner then Shatzer.

Go with Pupa Tzelem, and Chareidim.

Will you have a chance to taste test them or you hold 30 days before?

Haven't tasted Pupa Tzelem in a while, but my recollection of the last time I did was that it was like paper.

Bottom line IMHO is that for flavor you need Whole Wheat. The real thin matzos won't work well with Whole Wheat, you will get Matzo Meal! Best flavor is spelt, but that is also the most $$$.

As long as it's baked well, and moisture is kept away (I make sure all my matzos are packed in 2lb corrugated boxes, so I don't open one big box and let moisture in to the entire lot) even if not so thin, they can be quite crispy.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!
