Super excited for my piece on childhood snacks and sweets in Israel appearing on National Geographic's The Plate's website. I am currently on a diet, a whole entire week (whoa!), but if you put any of the sweets and snacks in that post in front of me, there are no guarantees! Just sayin'! Head over for some more pics and the full, fun post. Yes, it took some international back and forth to write it. People in Israel have a different rhythm and do not quickly respond. Enjoy and have a great weekend. TGIF you all!


  1. Congrats on your article!! I've never had a Krembo but it sounds delicious!

  2. How very interesting and congrats! I am going to go spend so more time over there.

  3. Congrats on the feature. That's awesome!
    I discovered Israeli snacks when I visited Tel Aviv for work a few years ago, and I still have very fond memories of all the delicious snacks I tried. (I'm pretty sure I ate my body weight in Bissli snacks and chocolate halvah. Yum!)
    Sadly, I've yet to find any of my faves here in Canada, but it's probably for the best as far as my waistline is concerned... not to mention a good excuse to go back for another visit.

  4. Congrats on your feature! I love the savory side of Israeli food but that's a lot easier to make at home or get locally. Other than halvah I'm not really familiar with an of the others.
