We rented a car and went to Ikea. (Amusing side note: here it's pronounced "EE-Kay-Ah" because "Eye-Kee-Ah" sounds like the word for vomiting. Similar pronunciation with Kia brand cars). It was....incredible....to see the whole store decked out for "the Holidays". For Pesach. Amazing. Every table display was set up for a seder (seder plates for sale, too!):
|couldn't resist taking a bite of the cardboard matza (no jokes about how could we tell it was different from the real stuff, please)|
It's funny to have a whole huge store Kosher for Passover and still feel like there's not much to eat. That's because the vast majority of food items I have found are only certified for those who eat kitniyot (like beans and rice) on Passover. Works in a country with so many Sephardim in it, but not for us Ashkenazis.....I do think it's cool that many people here can eat their beloved Bamba even on Pesach, though (peanut butter corn puffs. It's like the ultimate "anti-Ashkenazi" food).
There were some unusual things that were kosher for Passover. Like clear tape. And paper napkins.
