EXCLUSIVE On-Site Report! Best In Show and Unusual New Products From Kosherfest 2017 - Part 2



Today we're bringing you part two of our report from Kosherfest 2017.

On Tuesday, the first day of the show, we interviewed representatives of companies exhibiting a variety of products, some of which were prize winners and others that just appealed to us as being unusual or of special interest. We posted five segments yesterday and we're posting another three today.

The products are Kosher and pareve ham and corned beef deli slices, colored printed matzos, bagel scoopers, prize-winning wines from Austria, pretzel challah, honey smoked salmon, ginger beer, and low calorie, high protein ice cream.

A special feature of the show was a contest to choose the best decorator and dresser of a pair of Abeles and Heymann hot dogs, using any condiments found on the Kosherfest show floor. The contest, announced by broadcaster Nahum Segal, resulted in some unusual combinations. A short version of the hot dog dressing contest is included in the video below.

More than 400 exhibitors lined both sides of seven aisles to vie for the attention of visitors (trade only -- but some kiddush aficionados seem to have found their way into the hall) who tried to manage noshing and stuffing literature into the bags provided by some vendors (and rolling suitcases brought by attendees).  And there was plenty to nosh and to stuff.

Some of the samples were meat, some were dairy, and some were pareve.  But all three types were scattered around the show floor, so anyone trying to keep kosher had to make careful choices.

We apologize for the loud background noise from the 6,000 attendees milling about the exhibit space while we were conducting the interviews. Use of earbuds or headphones is recommended.
 
Enjoy!
