Shopping: Top 5 Rosh Hashanah Treats

Treat House

With Rosh Hashanah coming up, we decided to put together a list of our top five choices of treats for the Jewish New Year. It’s customary to eat sweet foods and avoid salty and bitter ones altogether to symbolize hope for a ‘sweet’ New Year! Between these desserts and the obligatory apples dipped in honey, your New Year will be off to a very sweet start indeed.

Treat House, a gourmet crisped rice emporium, is offering a special limited edition Apples and Honey flavor just in time for Rosh Hashanah. Treats are available in store at 452 Amsterdam Avenue starting September 15! Ten cents of every treat purchased will be donated to the Food Bank for New York City so you’ll be doing something great while you satisfy your own sweet tooth.

All Francois Payard Bakeries and FP Patisserie Manhattan locations are offering Green Apple & Honey Macarons and Apple Honey Cake this holiday season. The perfect hostess gift or finishing touch to a homemade meal, this is a fancier nod to sliced apples and honey.
