Passover Disaster! Tam Tam Supply at Risk!

posted by on April 2 at 11:21 AM


But Manischewitz, the global kosher food producer, has temporarily stopped making Tam Tams because of production problems at its Newark, N.J., plant.

A $15 million oven that was supposed to debut in October didn’t come on line until December, Manischewitz spokesman David Rossi said. That didn’t leave enough time to produce the company’s full line of matzo products for Passover.

We wandered in the desert for forty years, only to have this unspeakable tragedy befall us? Repent now, lest the Jews be asked to suffer more!

How does my matzah go stale before the end of Passover if they can store it in warehouses from December and still sell it?

G-d will provide.

Tam-Tams - yeccch. They're only slightly better than those godawful almond flour cookies.

Oh, just get the matzoh crackers and break them into little squares already.

Oh no! No more cardboard crackers. Boo-fucking-hoo.

Someone's gonna need to wrap Mr. Poe in aluminum foil for Passover.

I think I speak for the majority of secular-humanist atheists everywhere when I say "QUOI?!?"

This doesn't have anything to do with that big Chinese melamine scandal, does it?

I'll let Monique.

That's hawt.

@4 Agreed. Pesach usually finds me five pounds lighter at the end of the week since I find that I can't stomach another piece of matzah, another prepackaged Pesach dinner, or anything that has "Kosher for Passover" stamped on it.
