Have you ever seen a Milky Way that’s Chalav Yisroel? Someone told me a few years ago that they bought one in New York State. Can anyone recommend a candy bar that tastes close to a Milky Way?May 15, 2011 7:18 pm at 7:18 pm #767050commonsenseParticipant

Definitely Milk Munch, but I havent seen them lately.May 16, 2011 3:49 am at 3:49 am #767052GeshmakManParticipant
I never understood the taava to make a Kosher version of every Goyisha product possible.
It personally bothers me to see “Bloomioes” and all these are Heimishe brands trying to copy the goyisha (yes Kosher) products.
Just strikes me the wrong wayMay 16, 2011 12:32 pm at 12:32 pm #767053
i’d looove a chalav yisrael peanut butter cup – it’s the one thing i miss since i got married and took upon myself chalav yisrael. i’ve tried making it, but nothing comes close to the real thing.May 16, 2011 1:52 pm at 1:52 pm #767054
Re: Milky Way, Milk Munch, and Smirk.
I just did a taste test. I don’t eat so many candy bars but I’m buying some for someone who likes them.
Milky Way which is not Cholov Yisroel tastes really good. I don’t know how they figured out how to make such a good tasting candy bar and so they deserve some accolades. My Chalav Yisroel recipient will have to do without. I will be substituting her request with Milk Munch and Smirk. Smirk is fairly decent. It has nuts in it which would make it like a snickers but the nutty taste is not so strong and so it could be a valid substitute for the Milky Way.
One of the things that I miss after becoming kosher (although there are so many great products out there and the decision has forced me to learn how to cook!) is pop tarts. They come in so many flavors these days. They have considered becoming kosher and we await the day when they will make their fateful decision. And I hope they decide to be Chalav Yisroel but then they should also be Pas, Kemach Yashan and the other designations as well because they have such a decent product.
Nutter Butter became kosher but not Nutter Butter surrounded by a crispy wafer (still waiting on that one). There are these caramel cremes with the white stuff in the middle but can’t have those yet. There are the circus peanuts (orange marshmallow) and you can get these in some of the supermarket bakeries in Israel (they don’t look like peanuts but they taste sort of close to them).May 16, 2011 3:08 pm at 3:08 pm #767055mewhoParticipant
ah who needs all of these ? we need to watch our weight anyway.
better to eat fruits and vegetables.May 16, 2011 3:54 pm at 3:54 pm #767057
Someone else told me to melt chocolate chips in the microwave and mix it with peanut butter. Put it in the freezer and enjoy!
I’m getting hungry now 🙂May 16, 2011 4:20 pm at 4:20 pm #767058☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
Are Egozi bars still available?May 16, 2011 7:29 pm at 7:29 pm #767059
On fruit: Believe it or not there are people who can’t handle too much sugar from fruit(like myself). Chocolate is okay but sometimes Chinese Pecans are not. Things change when you get older (I’m writing this with a big smile on my face because I really don’t mind getting older – bring on the great-grandchildren!!!).
I also need a lot of salt. My dad used to eat salted candy when he was growing up because people weren’t getting enough of it. Now I think it’s a genetic thing because I really need salt or else the food doesn’t affect me the right way. I also have low-normal blood pressure.May 16, 2011 8:14 pm at 8:14 pm #767060OfcourseMember

Btw oreos are NOT dairy (find out for urself, I dont take responsibility) and neither r reeces pieces.May 16, 2011 8:45 pm at 8:45 pm #767066
Seriously?? They’re parve?May 16, 2011 8:49 pm at 8:49 pm #767067
I just found this on the OU website:
Do oreo cookies contain any dairy ingredients?
At this time, the Original Oreo sandwich cookie and Double Stuf sandwich cookie (and ONLY those products) do not directly contain dairy ingredients but are manufactured on dairy equipment. Please bear in mind, however, that the very nature of the OU-D certification denotes that we do not assume any responsibility for the cleanup or for any leftover traces of dairy on the machinery.This is one reason that the OU does not utilize a D.E. designation.
Please also bear in mind that Nabisco has the legal right to switch the formula to dairy at any time of their choosing, for which the OU also assumes no responsibility. You should periodically check with O.U. and not rely on the ingredient panel on the label.
Since I don’t eat dairy equipment I guess I still can’t have them. Oh well. You sure did get my hopes up though 🙂May 17, 2011 5:17 am at 5:17 am #767068
