    Royal. Cook 2 hours, then totally drain. Don’t forget to add the Shabbos Spice:)

    I found Fruend’s to be the best. Don’t know why I love it but I do.

    What does Frued have to do with gefilte fish? Why does everything have to come back to psychologists?

    I like Royal. My kids love A&B. I bake mine in the oven.

    Freunds Simcha Roll- definitely the best by far!! I cook it.I have company every Shabbos, & all the “repeats” look forward to my fish, saying it’s the best they ever tasted.

    I think Royal is a cheaper brand of A&B.

    Some side info- the cheaper the gefilte fish is, the less fish there’s in it.

    The more expensive brands charge more because there’s more REAL FISH in there.

    Royal- have tasted many others but they pale in comparison in taste and texture.

    Most gefilte fishes are like a piece of raw dough. Think about next time you eat it.

    I hear there’s aa new one out there- Feldman’s, and it’s pretty good. If someone tries it please let us know!

    My wife and I tried many different brands when we first got married, and decided that the A&B Hungarian Style fish was the best. We boil it with carrots, some onion, sugar, and a bit of black pepper.

    I hear many people not wanting any starch that goes into the regular store bought rolls, have their fish store make them a roll of pure fish, onions etc, and no starch. The rolls are at least $10 a piece though.

    Anyone here knows a store in BP that they know offers a tasty one without special order? The ones that dont do it regularly, you have to custom order 10 rolls at a time.

    Freunds and A & B; the most expensive, but the best. Ungars and Meal Mart are ok. Don’t remember about Royal. The rest some people like them otherwise they wouldn’t still be on the market.

    BenZ’s used to be a good fish, but I don’t see it anymore.

    Feif Un – How do you manage to have A&B fish’s paper wrap not get stuck to the loaf during cooking; we have had no luck? While the fish may be tasty, because some of the fish sticks to the wrap, the result is disfigured fish. We switched to Ungers, good fish and no stuck paper problem.

    cherrybim: I don’t know, we just don’t have a problem with it. Maybe you’re overcooking it, or not putting in enough water? We usually cover the fish about 3/4 of the way up with water, cook for 45 minutes, flip it over, and cook for another 45 minutes. Make sure the flame is low so the water doesn’t boil out.

    I’ve used A&B, but, they add matzoh meal. I’ve used Freund’s which doesn’t add matzoh meal, but, it’s too sweet. They are both very good, but, when I have time I make my own gefilte fish and it’s the best (also expensive, I don’t add any fillers)

    Ofcourse- I think webers fish store has it. I use their gefilte fish and its delicious. Much fishier than other brands, but I’m not sure if it’s totally starch free. I do think they make such rolls though.

    I buy whatever’s on sale (really like Royal); but the best fish I ever had was called ‘Shabbos Fish’, & I believe we got it from Crown Hts. @ Pesach time.

    Our family uses Ungers Gefilte fish rolls.

    Just got the recipe from our home.

    It is sometimes cooked on a stovetop with carrots, onions,

    some sugar & black pepper.. or sometimes cooked in the oven with a homemade lightly precooked sauce: tomato sauce, ketchup, sugar ,

    fried onions, sliced carrots, sugar, black pepper and small chunks of celery. Pour on top of the gefilte fish and bake

    covered for 90 minutes in a preheated oven at 365 degrees.
