Passover Tidbits: New This Year


As you prep for next week’s holiday, you might want to check out some new things this year! From apps and haggadot to new foods and recipes, here is a wide variety of ways to spice up your holiday observance.

Passover Assistant App – new this year from Chabad and available for IOS and Android devices (and free!) – has a meal planner, interactive “Mah Nishtanah” trainer, and checklists for preparing. Find it in the iTunes app store or Google Play store.




Wacky Apple Applesauce – made by a Colorado company on the Western Slope. Their applesauce is gluten-free, lactose-free, and Kosher. Try an easy Charoses made with Wacky Apple applesauce – just add nuts and cinnamon. Find this at local grocers including Whole Foods, Sprouts, King Soopers, Vitamin Cottage and City Markets.


– this has got to be a hit in Boulder! “The Trail Mix of the Exodus” is available in a variety of flavors and just what you think – kosher for Passover matzo granola for breakfast and noshing.



Pop Haggadah – In case you have Amazon Prime and haven’t lined up a haggadah yet, this one looks creative and fresh.

And that’s just one of many new Haggadot – Check out this list on Huffington Post, New Haggadahs Offer Unique Passover Experience for Every Seder Table”

Let us know in the comments if you try any of these this year (if there’s chocolate involved, feel free to stop by and share a taste!). Did anyone make the Dark Chocolate Banana Matzoh Brei last year? Looked too good to be true!

May your journey from mitzrayim to the promised land be joyful and flavorful this year!
