This year, the first night of Chanukah begins on December 18. For eight nights, families will celebrate the Festival of Lights. Since 1888, Manischewitz has been helping families celebrate the holidays with their extensive line of Jewish food products. They sell everything from gefilte fish and macaroons to matzo and matzo ball mix. This Chanukah, Manischewitz has some fun treats to help families celebrate the holiday.

In a press email shared with Guilty Eats, Shani Seidman (CMO of Kayco Kosher Food Brands) noted: “Manischewitz has been the comfort food for the soul for over 133 years and it’s become part of many family’s cultures. These new and popular products are the perfect, inclusive way for families to share experiences that last a lifetime. They also make for delicious desserts and great gifts!“

During the eight night holiday, children often play a game of dreidel and win chocolate coins wrapped in shiny gold foil, known as gelt. New this year, Manischewitz has introduced Crypto Gelt Chocolate Chanukah Coins. Unlike most cryptocurrencies, Crypto Gelt coins are made of milk chocolate and imprinted with an M for “Manischewitz.” And of course, they are meant to be eaten and enjoyed! Kids will love seeing this modern take on the chocolate coins they know and love. The Crypto Gelt is sold in a package of 36 bags with a suggested retail price of $9.99 – $12.99 or in individual bags that retail for $2.00 to $3.00 a bag and can be purchased online or at most major grocery retailers.

The company has also gotten in on the Ugly Holiday Sweater trend with their own Manischewitz Ugly Sweater Chanukah Sugar Cookie Kit. This fun family activity will have everyone baking and decorating sweater-shaped sugar cookies with yellow, blue and white icing and sprinkles. This kit has a suggested retail price of $8.99.

Manischewitz also has a Chanukah House Cookie Kit. This is not a traditional gingerbread house!  It’s a vanilla cookie kit that includes the cookies, icing, sprinkles, sugar decorations and sanding sugar all in blue, white and gold. This kit retails for $9.99.

Sufganiyot are deep fried jelly donuts traditionally eaten during Chanukah. Manischewitz makes it easy to whip up a batch of these treats with their Donut Mix Kit. Based on the picture on the box, this kit does not make the classic, spherical jelly-filled donut. Instead, it comes with donut mix, blue and white sprinkles and powdered sugar to make the round, ring-shaped donut with the hole in the middle. The kit retails for $6.99.

You can find these treats online or at most major grocery retailers throughout the country.
