El Gordo's worst kosher candy competition

Recommended Posts

What allows a candy to qualify as kosher for passover? (sorry, my grandparents were so reform they practically took us to egg hunts. My mom actually took us to egg hunts :hmmm: )

Is chocolate kosher for Pesach?

That must mean there are Passover chocolate candies, but I've never heard of any (or any bad ones, for that matter).

Candy and Chocolate are kosher for Passover if prepared following the more strict Passover Kashrut rules. No corn syrop, flour, peanuts/peanut oil, grain-based oils like canola (which is a seed... not a grain but I can't explain everythign!) or anything else not allowed for the holiday.

Of course, to be kosher these things must be made by a company that is under supervision from a certifying agency..or a rabbi.

Soba - there are many kosher for Passover chocolates - many of them good, many of them not so good. I bake with a lot of chocolate at Passover.

Soba, now that you're living on the UWS, you need to take a visit to the Passover store (I don't know where this year's location will be yet). You'll have opportunity to see all assorted goods that are available for the holiday. It's really exploded in the last 30 years. It used to be that the only place you could find K-P chocolate chips was the Passover shop at Macys.

Most Passover chocolate is pareve--it's a lot harder to find milk chocolate than dark in a Kosher market's Passover aisle, in my experience. But then most folks serve a meat meal for the Passover seders, when Passover candies are most likely to be consumed--and since you can't mix meat and dairy at the same meal, the chocolates will have to be dark.

I always loved the milk chocolate-covered matzos as a child. But nobody ever thought to bring them for me since they knew we would have a meat Seder and therefore no dairy. (I guess nobody considered how much I would have enjoyed them on the subsequent days of Passover. :rolleyes:)

It appears that the dilemma over finding tasty candy for Passover may have found something new .... this stuff, according to their press, is a cut above the usual:

Ah, the Perils 'o' Pesach are as myriad as the Plagues visited upon the Egyptians!

Have a marvelous, liberating, celebration of freedom from tyranny wherever it may occur, happy and healthy Passover!!

Only slightly off topic - my husband's good friend, Rabbi Arnie Freitag, recently commented that running the cleaning cycle on your oven is the modern day equivalent of cleaning part of your kitchen for Passover.
