Bakeries are rolling out their holiday challah just in time for the Jewish New Year, and hounds are happy to see the traditional bread come in a variety of flavors.

rworange spied plain, poppy seed, and raisin challah on sale at The Cheese Board Collective in Berkeley.

On the Peninsula, artemis likes the offerings at Draeger’s stores, where the round loaves are available in sesame, raisin, mixed fruits, plain, and poppy seed. “Draeger’s makes our favorite regular challah so I have high hopes for this one, too,” artemis says.
