The Krembo is a popular treat invented about 200 years ago in Denmark.
In the winter the Krembo replaces the ice cream because it doesn’t melt at room temperature and the ice cream is too cold.
The Krembo looks like a half ellipse of chocolate with a cream filling and a cookie on the bottom. There are many different flavors for the cream filling but the most popular one is vanilla.
In the 40s the Krembo was homemade all over the country and in 1966 the Whitman Company started marketing the product in Israel and gave it the Hebrew name Krembo – meaning “cream in it”.
In the winter you can find Krembos in almost every supermarket.
Tons of Krembos are sold in Israel every winter. In fact, Israelis eat more than 50 million Krembos every winter.
If you haven’t tried a Krembo yet – you really should!
