We at Kosher.com are major sweets fans, but we love all things savory as well! And while no one will complain about a thoughtful mishloach manot filled with candy, chocolate, and cookies, there are so many equally gift-able salty, spicy, not-so-sweet bites.


Our favorite thing about savory mishloach manot? They allow us to give our close family and friends items they can actually use! Most people spend a great deal of time and energy preparing for mishloach manot deliveries, so lunch, a healthy snack, or Shabbat appetizers are probably the last thing on their minds. To help you (and them) out, we’ve rounded up 25 super-tasty savory options, including Truffle & Rosemary Popcorn, Meat Chummus, Olive Bread and more!


Feel free to mix and match the items on this list to create themes, such as “Shabbat,” by packaging together, dips, challah, salads and lahamagene (mini meat pizzas)!
