My daughter went to a fancy 6 year old birthday party and they gave out these awesome hula hoops with refillable gumballs as the party favor. This is a genius idea and its great that you can refill it. My kids love it. It’s not so easy to actually hula hoop with it, but it sure is fun to try.

It has an OU hecsher and can be bought at the candy store near me in Monsey ny. iCandy. I think it’s about 9.99 each.

I found a website that sells similar fun filled hoops.  dont think these are kosher, but this is the idea.

I recently just read an article that the OU is certifying some new Kosher candy from Tootsie, Blow Pops, Tootsie Roll Pops and the like.  While I am happy that these new candies are coming out, I am still waiting for my childhood dream candy – Skittles – to become Kosher certified.  I did some research and found that Wrigley’s is the company that manufacture’s Skittles, Starburst and Life Savors, all of which are amazing candies but not Kosher.  What could we do to change this situation?

Living in a very populated Jewish area, there are tons of candies out there in our supermarkets, but none are copies of any of the Wrigley’s types of candies.  Leave your feedback and let Wrigley’s know how many people want to see them Kosher!
