Oy Gevald!


Say it "Aint" so! While perusing the Yesiva World News, I saw that Streimel cookies may soon be no more. The Stella Doro are my favorite cookie. For a while, they tried to go milchig, but then went back to the tried and true parve. Please excuse me for reading YWN, but it's a good source for important things... like Stella Doro cookies. Maybe Kitov or Mishpacha could come out with a pale "heimishe" imitation. On second thought, why ruin good memories.

Don't worry- one of their factories is closing, but another is staying open. The cookies will still be manufactured.

Geez - I hope Raizy is right!

So tell us, LFD, how do you eat a Streimel cookie? I eat the cookie part on the outside and THEN the chocolate in the middle!

The way I eat a SD cookie is to eat all if the surrounding cookie first (hence the mezonos w/o anyone telling me not to eat the shehakol first) and because I like th chocolate part with just a little cookie under it. How about you?

Exactly!

We just had these this past Shabbos after not having them for a while. I always liked passing the factory driving up the Major Deegan Expressway ... when we lived in Riverdale and Westchester for 13 years, we passed it quite a bit.

Oh, and I remember the milchik years. It brought out all sorts of controversy, since they weren't really milchik, just Dairy Equipment, but the OU doesn't allow a DE designation, unlike the Kof-K ... so you could really tell a lot about a person if they ate the OUD version after a flaishik meal.

TESYAA:

if you call the OU about a particular product they will tell you if it is DE or real D

I used to chip away at the cookie, even under the chocolate, and then eat the chocolate, but now I like to eat the whole thing frozen.

Tr8erGirl said...

Frozen......gotta try that!

Driving past the Stella D'Oro factory on the Deegan used to be more exciting than it is now. Back in the day, the aroma was intoxicating. Nowadays you can't smell a thing; there must have been some new environmental regulations imposed at some point.

I hope Mishpacha, Gefen or whatever Jewish brand doesn't try to create their own cookie. WHY? Because it would have to be stale in order to sell first! (and why ruin a good memory?)
