Kosher food maker sparks concern and outrage by announcing gefilte fish ice cream

Jews have reacted with horror to the new product


An American kosher food manufacturer has sparked concern online after mocking up a range of Jewish ice cream flavours including gefilte fish, matzoh ball soup and black and white cookies.

Manischewitz, a kosher brand that makes a wide range of traditional Jewish products including whitefish, matzah balls and almond macarons have developed a reputation online for Jewish-inspired 'Frankenstein foods.'

Last year the company made headlines with its gefilte fish hot dogs and have now sparked even more outrage from Jews after their latest concoctions.

When asked why they picked gefilte fish and matzah balls over more traditional sweet flavours like hamantaschen or babka, the company said: "gefilte scored higher on the research."

Twitter users couldn't decide what to make of the freak ice creams with some saying they'd be more than happy to indulge, but others said it made them "side with antisemitism."

Last year, when the company announced the gefilte dogs, Twitter user Annika Rothstein said: "NONE OF US ASKED FOR THIS. This is a hate crime and a monstrosity and it should be tried at The Hague".
