"Exactly! Temporary. You're nothing but a wannabe, a placebo, a generic brand. Marked-down, over-the-counter, useless Tic-Tac!"

Thanks to SIS for the hat-tip

Ruling: Snickers, Tic-Tac not kosher



Attention kosher keepers: Israeli Chief Rabbinate ordered to remove from shelves Tic-Tac mints as well as Snickers, Mars and Bounty ice-creams

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."


Leimen-Shclissel, which imports Tic-Tac to Israel, said in response: "In the coming days we are about to receive a kosher certificate from an American kashrut organization, approved by the Rabbinate."



Importers of the ice-cream snacks, Moshe Sidas and Sons LTD, claimed that they are doing their best in order to resolve the issue as soon as possible.

In the US, Mars candies (Snickers, etc.) are under the O-U, which I would assume would be acceptable to the Israeli Rabbinate. I guess Israel imports them from another country?
