BULLETIN FROM THE GUIDE TO CHODOSH-CHOL HAMOED SUKKOS: CHANGES AND UPDATES TO THE PRELIMINARY GUIDE & additional changes

October 11, 2017 from Yoseph Herman, The Guide to Chodosh, Hot Line 718-305-5133. Email: yherman@earlthlink.net

  • Quaker oats. In all cereals made in the USA, both those that are cooked and those that are eaten cold, the Chodosh packing date for oats is Oct.1. For cooked cereals this results in the “Best if used by” date of Mar 25 19. For Quaker Life it is Sept 26 18. For Quaker cereals made in Canada we do not have any update yet. Therefore we still recommend the chumra date of Jan 11 19.
  • Post cereals, the Chodosh date for oats is Oct 15 18.
  • Nature Valley Granola bars Chodosh date on the package is Sept 8.
  • Malt-O-Meal cereals, the wheat is always winter and Yoshon. The packing date for Chodosh oats is Oct 15, for barley (not malt) Aug 31.
  • Cheerios made in Poland and sold in Israel are surely Yoshon up to the date on the package of Oct 7 18. This date may be extended to a later time in the future.
  • Meal Mart: all products are Yoshon. If there are any changes later in the season, those packages will have a Chodosh label on them.
  • Klein’s Ice Cream products are all Yoshon with the possible exception of “Cigars”.
  • Won Ton Co. wraps are Yoshon.
  • Heckers and Ceresota flours are from winter wheat. Malt Chodosh date is June 15 19 (for those who are makpid for malt in flour.)

October 16,2017 corrections from R Herman: "The Chodosh Bulletin I sent out during Chol Hamoed had an error. Life cereal contains wheat as well as oats. The Chodosh date should be Jul 24 18.
In addition note that Quaker oats made in Canada and sold in the US, such as some of the instant oats packets, have a Chodosh date of Feb 26 19."
