In Case You Were Wondering...

Tic Tac Mints, Snickers, Mars and Bounty ice cream is all being removed from shelves in Israeli stores. Why, you might ask? Because they all have been deemed not kosher:

The Israeli Chief Rabbinate ordered to remove Tic-Tac mints as well as Snickers, Mars and Bounty ice-cream from shelves in stores. The reason: The Rabbinate found that the products, branded as kosher, are in fact non-kosher.

"The products are displayed as approved by Rabbi Ralbag and the Israeli Chief Rabbinate," wrote Thursday Rabbi Yaakov Sabag, head of Kashrut Department at the Rabbinate. "But when we checked the facts with Ralbag," he added, "We learned that he didn't approve the products. It's a serious forgery."

I'm wondering if there are any political reasons why those specific brands are now not deemed kosher. Like maybe the Mars Bar company doesn't support Israel*? Who knows?

*I don't know if this is true. I'm speculating

    So that's why I can't find a Mars bar anywhere!?!?

    No, wait, I don't live in Israel.

    Never mind.
