Passover Detective

Passover is a joyous time of year. Recounting the Exodus is good times, followed by delicious meals with plenty of wine to wash it all down. Passover is fun.

Passover is also a time of year when companies and stores prey on un-savvy shoppers.

Last year I posted a photo of a particularly deceptive package of candy made by Streit’s. But the photo has not had any effect it seems, as an abundance of mega-packaging candies still fill the stores.

Shopkeepers are also charging premiums of food that is kosher for passover and all year round. Except for a few loss leaders, prepared and packaged foods are sold at a huge premium.

So to add some consumer activism to repretoir, infused with some humor, I present a short series entitled “The Passover Detective.”
