Today's word: שוקו ולחמניה

It must be Israeli food day at work. They just brought us a classic Israeli snack, and as one coworker remarked, “what are we, in kindergarten?”

It’s שוקו ולחמניה, a white roll with “shoko b’sakit”, or chocolate milk in a bag:

shoko lachmania

I realize how weird that may sound, but I guess that weirdness was broken for me years ago when I spent a summer here and an Israeli friend of mine said we were getting breakfast and he walked into a makolet and came out with two white rolls and two bags of chocolate milk.

    I had a friend who grew up on Yod Vatah.

    Love that place…i think he used to milk the cows…or something.

    this is an upgraded experience. When I grew up (in Israel) the roll was half the size and the shoko didn’t have the שפיץ
