Everyone in my house loved the new Tivall thin vegetarian schnitzels, available in a regular flavor and with spicy chili breading. For those who are more hungry than usual, Tivall offers XL-size schnitzels (100 gr. apiece), with barbecue or green Tabasco flavored breading. A 700-gr. package is NIS 33.94. The brand Free offers a range of gluten- and cholesterol-free snacks, made from different seeds or peanuts. For those who like it a little sweeter, Free has two new snacks with chocolate coating: cereal snack (puffed rice) with chocolate (75 calories a bar) and peanut snack with chocolate (116 calories a bar). A package containing five bars is NIS 18. Tnuva has come up with a convenient package containing your child's mid-morning snack to bring to school: a carton with cornflakes, milk for kids (sweetened), a bowl and spoon, plus a little surprise (a removable tattoo). The all-in-one "food-break" carton, priced at NIS 7.49, may be convenient, but it will still be cheaper to prepare a sandwich yourself. Some people like their orange juice with fruit pulp and some without, and Prigat is now offering you a choice. It is now marketing one-liter bottles of freshly squeezed low-pulp or high-pulp juice for NIS 13. Orbit has new sugar-free gum called Fresh&Fusion with so-called micro-mints in the flavors melon and berries. The mint-gums are a little bigger than the regular Orbit gums; a box containing 10 mint-gums is NIS 4.35. Also new from Orbit are sugarless mints, available in mint and orange-mint; a box is NIS 4.50. A new ale beer for those who want to drink something more sophisticated than the regular Maccabi or Goldstar is Paulaner Weissbier. A bottle of this white beer is priced at NIS 24 to NIS 29, and is available in bars and clubs, and in selected wine stores. Dorot is offering handy solutions for those moments when you need spices for cooking and don't have them fresh. Some new varieties of their frozen cubes of spices are Italian (oregano, basil, rosemary), French (herbes de Provence) and Asian (ginger, garlic, chili). Sense of Gaya is a series of health-food products, including different types of teas, infusions and honey. A nice hot drink is the apple-honey infusion, which looks nice on display in a glass jar (they are not sold in tea bags; you have to use a strainer); 100 gr., available at the Hochmat-Ha'adama stores, is NIS 13. Telma has a sweetened version of its cornflakes: with honey. My kids loved the new honey-flakes, but it turned out to be a little hard to find in the stores; a 575-gr. package is NIS 16-NIS 18.
