Does everyone not realize that when you find a not kosher resteraunt that IS kosher (like McDonalds, burger king, ect.) And it doesn’t taste as good as you expect is because there’s no dairy mixed with meat!!! They all LOVE McDonalds because there’s cheese on the burgers….so obviously its not as good as you expect because its just your old simple burger!October 22, 2009 3:00 am at 3:00 am #895421JewessMember
Do you really want to eat a 99 cent burger? I don’t. God knows if it’s not really horse meat.October 22, 2009 3:01 am at 3:01 am #895422sammygolMember
Do you remember kosher Nathan’s in Midwood? It was overpriced, greasy and tasteless. Hot dogs don’t have cheese, yet, it was so not special that one visit sufficed.October 22, 2009 4:08 am at 4:08 am #895423
Sammygol: do I remember? No I do not lol. I’m only 18. And I don’t eat hot dogs. Especially from a resterauntOctober 22, 2009 4:08 am at 4:08 am #895424mybatMember
Shaatra I think kosher delight is better, and sammygol, Nathans in LA is good!! Never went to the one in midwood.
My husband wishes nachos and cheese were kosher.October 22, 2009 5:20 am at 5:20 am #895425haifagirlParticipant
shaatra: Not all treif burgers have cheese. McDonald’s and Burger King and Wendy’s etc. all make burgers without cheese.October 22, 2009 2:24 pm at 2:24 pm #895426
Mybat: I but tortia chips from the supermarket, lay it on a tray, take Haolam yellow cheese and cut it up on each nacho and stick it in the toaster for a few minutes its SOOO good!!! Try it!!!April 15, 2010 7:14 am at 7:14 am #895427

BTW, if anyone wants to try KFC chicken, pour some Hunt’s bbq sauce over your chicken and bake at 350 for 1&1/2 hours or more, uncovered.
When I served this easy chicken once, my in-laws were amazed that it tasted just like KFC’s.April 20, 2010 6:10 pm at 6:10 pm #895440

Enternmans chocolate pop-ems, hershey’s chocolate, nestles chrunch and Haggendaz ice cream.
True, my “wish list” items have an OU (or at least they did back in the days), but they are not cholov yisroel, so I’ve gone without for more years than I can count!April 26, 2010 5:28 pm at 5:28 pm #895445bptParticipant
I scrolled back a few pages to see what else people miss from their “fress-fest” and saw Hafiagirls post.
As a FFB, I hang my head in shame and stand in awe of people like her and Oomis1005’s husband (and any other BTs out there).
Haggendazz ice cream? That’s all I’m missing? They walked away from an entire lifestyle and plunged into very challenging one (one, I might add, we FFBs take for granted) and for them to see such petty whining from people like me about how much they miss pop-ems?
Sorry. I stand properly chastized.April 26, 2010 6:57 pm at 6:57 pm #895446

I recently discovered Ovomaltine (a Swiss chocolate brand) and Almdudler (an Austrian drink) are approved now by certain rabbonim. I almost bumped my head on the ceiling when I discovered that. Didn’t touch those things for the past 8 years or so (since I became frum). You can’t imagine how I felt!September 3, 2012 1:20 pm at 1:20 pm #895456sheinMember
What does “certain rabbonim” mean? That others disapprove? That it isn’t the known reliable hechsheirim?September 3, 2012 1:44 pm at 1:44 pm #895457interjectionParticipant
lobster. and clams. I’m wicked curious!September 3, 2012 2:17 pm at 2:17 pm #895458
@shein – yep, correct.
I used to be rather strict about hechsherim (only Edah and Rav Landau) but nowadays, I rely on many others and eat cholov akum. Yes, I know I’m probably going to die for that.
As for Switzerland, I rely on the IGB, ICZ and IRGZ.

TCG: Why did you drop your standards?September 3, 2012 8:57 pm at 8:57 pm #895460
I don’t consider it dropping my standards, rather, I consider it being realistic. I was in a less than optimal mental state (and still am), suffering from a lot of stress and mental exhaustion. I’m not going to make my life any more difficult than it already is. I went through some pretty rough times. I’d rather focus on being stable on basic things than trying to outfrum everyone else and then dropping like a brick and becoming chiloni.September 4, 2012 5:56 am at 5:56 am #895461
