Quick Update

As you may have noticed I have not posted a new review in quite some time. This was not a planned hiatus and I would have loved to have written blog posts in the past few weeks. It was not either Holiday related, on my end. There were plenty of days between the Holidays that I could have and would have posted a review. The issue was I simply did not find new products to review.

I don’t know if the major companies stopped putting out new products because of the Holiday season or if maybe it has to do with the ongoing boycotts that started here in Israel this summer with the "cottage cheese boycott" continued with the Shufersal and Tnuva boycotts, and goes on with threats of further boycotts, on big local companies like Telma and Osem.

Maybe the companies are reluctant to debut new products when they don’t think the public will be willing to give them a try. I have no idea what the reason is I just know that I read very few press releases and found nothing new on the store shelves worth trying.

There were a few items I did read press releases about but I simply could not find them in any of the supermarkets I shop in. I even checked other supermarkets in a different city but the items were nowhere to be found.

As soon as I find something new, interesting or exciting to taste I will be very happy to get back to my regular posting schedule.


  1. I sincerely hope that you find new products in the very near future cuz I really enjoy reading ur reviews!

  2. Oh you are sweet- thank you- I hope so too:)

  3. At least you tried, and thanks for that.
    The supermarket shelves are so packed already, where would they put anything new?

  4. :) thanks Dina
    and HAHA, good point, maybe they discontinue some things to add new things - I don't know? But until recently they seemed to somehow always find a place for new things:)
