Since 1865 Philadelphians and tourists have trekked to the Old Original Bookbinder's Restaurant, located dockside on the Delaware River. The restaurant grew originally out of the life of the seaport itself when Samuel Bookbinder opened for business.

Bookbinder's Specialties now offers some traditional restaurant favorites for at home use, and sold online and in specialty and grocery stores nationwide. Four of the varieties are both kosher and parve. We found these convenient to use, and an excellent addition to lunch or dinner cool weather meals.



Cuban Black Bean –Puréed black beans accented with corn, red peppers, onions, carrots, and a hint of proprietary spices. Fiber with good taste – need we say more? Vegetarian, Vegan & Kosher




Tuscan Minestrone – A blend of Mediterranean vegetables, beautifully combined with ripe tomatoes, white beans and gourmet spices. Only 80 calories per cup and 3 grams of fiber. Vegetarian, Vegan & Kosher


Zesty Tomato – A delicious combination of pureed ripe tomatoes, jalapeno peppers and ginger – a little ying and yang – not your traditional cream of tomato soup. Vegetarian & Kosher





Brandywine Mushroom – Brimming with a blend of fresh mushrooms in a sherry wine base. Vegetarian, Vegan & Kosher

As a lifelong chocoholic it is a struggle for those of us on the KosherEye team to pass by all of the fine chocolate stores that are not certified kosher. So when we find a fine kosher chocolate store and factory, we feel that we have reached Willy Wonka land.

Since 2009, Miami Beach Chocolates is recognized throughout the South Florida area as "Fine Handmade Chocolates". Its products are made with all natural ingredients including fine chocolate, butter creams, fruits and nuts. Miami Beach Chocolates does not add preservatives, extenders, or additives. The company is owned by Rachael and Eli Schachter, a mother and son team that focuses on quality, taste and presentation. Each bite, at least the ones we sampled, provided a rich, luxurious chocolate experience. The chocolate can be enjoyed by any consumer – choices include parve (dairy free) and cholov Yisroel dairy and regular dairy confections.

Available in Cholov dairy, Regular Dairy, Parve-Dairy Free
Seasonal Novelties including Passover
Can be shipped throughout the U.S.
Kosher certified by KM Kosher (Kosher Miami) and ORB (Orthodox Rabbinical Board of Miami)

The chocolate is available for order and can be shipped throughout the U.S. Miami Beach Chocolates is a franchise of Schakolad.

Aleppo Chili Pepper caramel is a sweet caramel that blends with the savory warming heat of Aleppo chilies,
Hawaiian Red Sea Salt caramel is a buttery caramel that is enhanced by exotic Alaea sea salt harvested off the island of Molokai.

Tahitian Vanilla caramel mixes floral and fruity notes of Tahitian vanilla with buttery caramel.

Everyone will have their own favorites of course, but we particularly enjoyed the Tahitian vanilla and the Hawaiian Red Sea salt.
