Many people have the Minhag to eat Taigalach on Rosh Hashana. To the best of my knowledge Taigalach is made with walnuts. How does this jive with the Minhag not to eat nuts on Rosh Hashana since Egoz ≈ Chait?

    Perhaps the minhagim are mutually exclusive. Does anyone hold of both?

    Many are lenient with nuts mixed in foods.

  • Many bakeries that I have seen don't use real nuts. They look more like flattened "soup nuts". They are, essentially tiny slightly hardened, sometimes half-fried or over-baked dough "nuggets" stuck together by honey-"glue". Definitely not as tasty. I'd much rather eat good baklava.

See Yad Yitzchak 1:208 who discusses nuts mixed in a tavshil if it loses its classification of a nut. http://www.hebrewbooks.org/pdfpager.aspx?req=855&st=&pgnum=198

See Be'er Moshe 3:97 as well who writes don't yell at those who are meikel.
