Exciting news is happening in the kosher candy market.  The OU (Orthodox Union) is putting their hechser on –JUNIOR MINTS, BLOW POPS, TOOTSIE ROLL POPS, CARAMEL APPLE POPS, CHARMS, SUGAR DADDY AND SUGAR BABIES GO KOSHER!  This is huge. Its about time!! I cant wait to try some of these goodies, but it may take a few months for the kosher labels to appear on the packages.  I know there are already jewish/kosher brands that make similar candies  like Paskez’s gum lolipops, but there is just something about being able to go into any store in any city or state an be able to get a varitey of candy.

I think Tootsie Rolls were the first to become kosher as they already have the OU-D hechsher on their labels in the stores.  When I had my first kosher toostie roll, boy was it good!  It was so sweet and chocolaty and sooo goooey.  I think it gave me an instant cavity.  Im wondering how many licks will it take  me to get to the center of the tootsie roll pop (get it?  from the old tootsie roll pop commercials).   Im excited to try the sugar daddies and sugar babies!  I’m not really sure what the caramel apple pops are, but you can be sure, as soon as I find them with an OU on them, Ill be trying them and reporting back to you.
