With Passover fast approaching, most grocery stores are featuring a display of foods and products traditionally eaten during the weeklong holiday. When filling the shelves, consumers may want to know which brands lead sales each year and which products are most popular.
MyWebGrocer, the leading provider of online grocery services, examined the sales of traditional Passover foods two weeks prior to Passover in both 2009 and 2010. Categories that saw the most sales included products made with matzo, such as crackers, cookies, baking mixes and soup; Gefilte fish; Kosher chocolate; and pancakes (potato and latke).
The brand leader across all product categories was Manischewitz, with considerable dominance in the matzo and chocolate categories. The second most purchased brand of matzo and matzo soup was Streit’s, who sold 31% and 9% respectively. In the category of gefilte fish, Mrs. Adler’s sold 36%, closely behind Manischewitz, who sold 38%. Kosher chocolate saw 21% of chocolate sold from the Joyva brand, second to Manischewitz, which sold 61%. For potato and latke pancakes, Manischewitz was the only brand offered.
