Pupa Tzelem is tastier than Chareidim no doubt.

Dan, why are you not trying Satmar?

I know a lot OOTrs who only do Satmar.

True it that it is more to the thick side but what I do is I put them in to the oven for 7 minutes and they are crispy as crispy gets and no one minds that its thick.

Even thick matzo, if put in the oven (or for that matter even in the microwave - where it will initially come out soft, but will harden in a few seconds) will come out crispy and better tasting than any paper thin matzo. I think the flavor of Whole Wheat cannot be outdone, and it simply won't work with paper thin matzo.

That being said, I don't let any Matzos into my kitchen, so I don't do the oven thing for Pesach. I would also want to check with a competent LOR if there are no problems with "re-baking" the Matzo.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Or having them cash your tzedaka check in for a steak dinner.
First hand experience? You know for a fact that it wasn't the restaurant owner offering to cash the check for free?

No interest in thick matzah.
Then try Montreal's if you haven't had it yet.

Surprised no one's mentioned it yet.

Thin, and the taste beats many others I've had.

Thick Matzohs is what my children fight over.
Man, take back that comment. In my entire life it's all we had. Yum.

Got in one year based on recommendations and was quite disappointed.

I can't comment on Satmar as I don't recall ever trying it, but I have tried most of the other ones mentioned here, and despite many negatives I come back to Crown Heights Matzos. They taste the best.

Out of curiosity, what about them disappointed you?

Like most things, try on a small scale before going all in.

Taste.

I don't know what it is about Crown Heights Matzos, the water, the oven, or the ratios of Whole Wheat to regular flour, but they simply taste the best.

In recent years they have also learned the hard way about giving service, though they still have a long way to go.

מצות קוממיות, are probably the best tasting matzo around.

They have excellent reputation also as far as הידור כשרות, at a certain point I heard someone was selling them here (also heard of Vizhnitz Bnai Brak) but never actually got to sample either of those.

I've tasted קוממיות many times.  It does not even come close to Satmar.
