In time for Hanukkah, a few weeks ago my kosher certification initiative (Kosher Michigan) officially certified as kosher the new Baskin Robbins ice cream store in my hometown of West Bloomfield, Michigan. To show appreciation for becoming kosher, the store’s owner (Stella Stojanovic) created these new Hanukkah ice cream cup
Stella’s former Baskin Robbins location in West Bloomfield was about a mile from the home in which I grew up. Coincidentally, it was in the same strip mall as Marty’s Pizza, where the late Marty Herman started making his famous Marty’s Cookies thirty years ago. Those cookies are now certified kosher by Kosher Michigan too.
