According to Kosher Travel News & Reviews / YeahThat’sKosher.com, speculation has emerged that Skittles will be given a kosher certification by the Orthodox Union (OU).
I don’t really know the authenticity of these rumours, nor do I know much about the source of where I found this wonderful news, but nonetheless just thinking about the possibility of eating my favourite childhood candy once again is enough of a reason to publicize the possibility of it coming to fruition.
After every single hockey game I played when I was younger, I would go immediately to the closest vending machine in the arena and purchase one of two choices for a post-game snack. One was berry-flavoured Powerade drink, and the other was whatever available package of Skittles. What a great snack. The day I found out they weren’t kosher (since they contain gelatin) was heartbreaking.
One can only dream… if not taste (the rainbow, that is…)
