When I was growing up, the Chalav Yisrael cheese varieties were pretty much limited to the big packs of single slice American Cheeze and one or two other types. Today it’s quite different with the huge variety of cheeses available in Colov Yisrael. As the cheeses come in so many different shapes, looks, sizes and of course tastes, without much effort your presentation will have all your participants smiling, and saying “cheese” (sorry,couldn’t resist the pun)
Peanut chews have become a Kiddush and dessert favorite for “sweet tooth’s” of all ages.
