Hanukkah lasts eight days, eight looooong days. Gelt S’mores help keep things lively.
And today being Christmas, Gelt S’mores also help cut the post-prandial greasiness from the lunch buffet lo mein.
Ours were made with Paskesz marshmallows my husband schlepped back from a Baltimore grocery store. While he was there doing my bidding, I actually discovered my Nashville Whole Foods sells kosher Elyon marshmallow all year-round. I caused quite a scene at the service counter, clutching a bag of Elyon and gushing my thanks and assuring them that no other store in town sells kosher mallows except at Passover and that I’d tell my kosher buddies where to go. Apparently, Whole Foods stock Elyon “because they are vegan.” But is fish gelatin vegan? My vegan friends would not touch fish gelatin with a 39-and-a-half-foot pole.
So, no more Jersey kosher care packages from my sister-in-law? No more grocery orders when my husband takes a business trip? No more bulk buys from kosher.com? Yes, an era has passed.
A great miracle happened here: kosher marshmallows year-’round in Nashville. A game-changer, for sure.

Wrote about kosher marshmallows all over the place, because I am obsessed with them. Most recently, the post about Edible Dreidels, here.
