Ice Cream of Affliction

And no this has nothing to do with Jews having problems with dairy. JTA reports:
Ice cream with Passover-themed flavors are on sale in Israel.

Matzah may be the bread of affliction, but it is making a welcome appearance in a Ben and Jerry's ice cream available only in Israel. The confection, "Matzah Crunch," is traditional vanilla mixed with bits of chocolate-coated matzah. It comes in milk or dark chocolate.

Yediot Achronot reported Wednesday that charoset has joined the flavors offered at Tel Aviv's Dulce Melody ice cream parlor. Much like the Passover seder dip that is meant to recall the mortar used by Jewish slaves in ancient Egypt, the ice cream contains apples, kiddush wine, raisins and nuts.

Dulce Melody also has vanilla ice cream with crushed and sweetened matzah. Kosher-for-Passover cones are available.

Each year I am pleasantly surprised at the ingenuity of Kosher establishment!
