Knish Crunch Persists Following Factory Fire

COPIAGUE, N.Y. (AP) -

The knish crunch continues. An official at Gabila’s Knishes, a 92-year-old company based in Long Island that makes the popular square fried potato treats, says it may be several more weeks until the shortage abates. The shortage started after a factory fire in late September that damaged the machinery that makes the potato puffs. Gabila’s bills itself as the world’s biggest maker of knishes and ships them around the world.
