White Mountain Chanukah Supermarket Specials

Much to my surprise, my two local (local being relative; they are 40 minutes away) supermarkets’ flyers this week included a “Happy Chanukah” section.


Here’s what was available at Hannaford’s in ME:

Lieber’s Milk Chocolate Coins (2/$1)

Rokeach Chanukah Candles ($1.49)

22 oz. Kedem Concord Grape Juice ($2.99)

Frozen Empire Kosher Roasting Chicken ($1.99 lb)


And here’s what’s available at Shaws in NH:

Elite chocolate coins (4/$1)

Promised Land Chanukah Candles ($.59)

Kineret Frozen Mini or regular Potato Latkes (buy one get one free)

Golden Blintzes ($2.49)

Gedilla Candy Filled Dreidel ($.99)

25.4 oz Kedem Sparkling Juice (2/$5)

Streits Potato Pancake Mix ($.99)

Lipton Kosher Recipe Onion Soup & Dip Mix (2/$3)

Kedem Tea Biscuits (3/$1)

Osem Chocolate or Vanilla Wafers ($.79)


and best of all….

Osem Bisli! (2/$1)


. . . and that will be about it until Pesach!

    These prices are even cheaper than the Jewish populated areas. I wonder what the prices will be after Chanukah is over.


  2. I know! But the downside is that is ALL they have, other than a few yarzheit candles, and a jar or two of gefilte fish that is probably older than I am! The only price that will go up after Chanuka is the chicken, to $2.49 – $2.99/lb. As to the rest, the store managers will just hope they sell this stuff before the expiration dates, scratching their heads wondering why corporate headquarters wanted them to take up valuable shelf space with things that don’t sell in the first place.
