Asked in Candy Corn
Is candy corn considered kosher?
In general chewy or gummy candy may have gelatin, which (unless specified as kosher) is made from ground up pig bone, sometimes cow, making it nonkosher. Many brands of candy corn contain gelatin. I would say more than half of them do so you should definitely look for a brand that has kosher certification. There are kosher brands of candy corn on the market. f
Asked in Kosher Food, Chewing Gum
Which gum is kosher?
There is no specific rules, as the companies may become non-kosher in a matter of minutes. If the mashgiach, kosher supervisor, sees a violation of the kashrus, the approval given by that agency (or Rabbi for that matter) is immediately revoked. Check for a reliable kosher symbol, and you should be in good shape!
Asked in Skittles
Are Skittles candy kosher?
No, at this time, Skittles are not certified kosher. The ones from the USA were never kosher. The ones from the UK used to be kosher, but they changed the formula about 2008 and stopped being kosher. In 2010, some Skittle packages were mistakenly labeled OU-D which obviously caused confusion over their status.

Is the lac beetle kosher?
Lac bug shell is edible, we have been eating it for years. We cover fruits in lac, and add it to candy (confectioner's glaze). But is it kosher? I have never heard that candies which have confectioners glaze on it have not been declaired as not kosher. Some insects are kosher, even some of the locusts are kosher. See 613 commandments for more information.

Asked in Gummy Candy
How do you make kosher gummy bears?
The problem is the gelatin. Most brands of Gummy Bears are made with non-kosher gelatin (manufactured using ingredients derived from the innards of pigs), meaning the candy itself is not kosher. There are, however, a couple of brands made for Jewish and Muslim audiences (Muslims too cannot eat non-kosher gelatin). I enclose a link to one of those brands of kosher Gummy Bears.
