Chubby Chickpea Food Truck in Boston Drops Kosher

Announced this morning in a tweet, the Chubby Chickpea Truck that serves the Boston area will no longer be kosher certified effective immediately.


While it’s still unclear as to the motivations yet, two thoughts come to mind:

  1. With Clover Food Lab recently going kosher, including numerous food trucks, out fo nowhere there’s increased competition
  2. Costs of Kosher supervision were too high to justify staying kosher for them

This is obviously conjecture, but I’d definitely hang my hat on economic factors.


Ironically, we found the Chubby Chickpea truck in Boston less than 3 weeks ago on our trip there. Sad Boston is losing a kosher option where it is sorely needed.

Randomly found the #Boston #kosherfoodtruck @ChubbyFoodTruck on our way to #Harborfest
