Pastrami on Rye with House-made Pickles and Deli Mustard – $5.25

Pastrami on Rye with House-made Pickles and Deli Mustard – $5.25

With well-seasoned pastrami and a lovely mustard, this was one of the best sandwiches at the Festival. It came with a great pickle as well. This is highly recommended.

*NEW* Smoked Salmon Potato Latke – $5.50

Smoked Salmon Potato Latke – $5.50

The Salmon Latke is a really great deal for the price, considering how much salmon is provided. This latke also has plenty of capers, which surprised us due it being a higher-price ingredient. The dill sour cream on top adds a nice flavor with the potato and salmon mixed in. Creamy, salty, and with a slight herby kick from the dill, this is a great latke, and a great option from the festival overall. Our only complaint about the latkes is that we wish they were a little bit crispier, but it’s still really good.

*NEW* Potato Latkes with Sour Cream – $4.00

Potato Latkes with Sour Cream – $4.00

A salmon-less version for the vegetarians, these latkes are are delicious, even though they seem to be made out of mashed potatoes, rather than the traditional shredded potatoes. This is the same dill sour cream that was used in the salmon latke. If you’re not a fan of dill flavoring, we recommend you pass on these.

Sufganiyot: Mini Jelly-filled Donuts – $3.50

Sufganiyot: Mini Jelly-filled Donuts – $3.50
Sufganiyot: Mini Jelly-filled Donuts – $3.50

We loved these donuts! They are small, but fresh and little bit dense. The jelly is sweet with a slight touch of tartness, but not overly sweet, which is nice. The glaze on the donuts is also pretty sweet, but it helps balance out the tart jelly filling. We were surprised by how good these donuts were this year, when last year, we were not the biggest of fans.

Black and White Cookie – $2.50

Black and White Cookie – $2.50

Another cookie on the cookie stroll, this was the worst of the bunch. If you’re not seeking out the final cookie stroll prize, don’t get this.

Shmaltz Brewing Company Hanukkah Beer, Clifton Park, NY (8.0% ABV) – $5.00 for 6 oz., $9.00 for 12 oz.

According to Schmaltz Brewing Company, their Hanukkah beer, known as Golden Jelly Doughnut Pastry Ale is “brewed with raspberry and cherry,” and fittingly for Hanukkah, is also “brewed with 8 malts and 8 hops.”

Blue Cosmo Cocktail – $11.00

Blue Cosmo Cocktail – $11.00

This cocktail tasted like twenty packets of sugar dumped into a glass of Powerade. Skip it, for sure.
