Everything you’ve ever wanted to know about Osem Soup Almonds **

uh... yum.**But were afraid to ask…

From Jewlicious’ gastronomy department somewhere in the south of France, a question: Ever see a bowl of tiny yellow squares next to the soup at your local kibbutz and think, “WTF?” Ever taste a few and wonder what the damn things were made of? As have I, as have I.

Well, wonder no more, Bubbeleh: Wheat flower, vegetable oil, salt, and various spices. Once you’ve recovered from the shock, tell a friend.

    Thank you so much Alli. This unknown has tormented me for years. BTW, watch the WTFs.

    What’s the problem with these little innocent “croutons?” They’re taste is enhanced when eaten with chicken soup or salads. Just don’t EVER eat them solo!

    And BTW, those little yellow squares are LOADED with fat and calories. I personally don’t think they’re worth it. I’d rather eat a tub of Chubby Hubby. Not that I do. But that’s only because I don’t eat them. The little yellow squares that is. And chubby hubbies. Hmm, could I possibly need some more sleep? Or more coffee? Oh gosh…

    Somehow my aunt got a hold of these in Dallas (a lot of my family moved here recently) for our pre-Tashlich lunch. I think they’re great for chicken soup, and now that I think about it her house is the only place I’ve ever seen them. Maybe ‘cuz my uncle’s Israeli. I really try not to read the ingredients of anything that comes from Eretz Yisrael because I assume it’s all good for me…at least spiritually.
