When many can remember where they were when iconic foods like Oreos, M&M’s and even Campbell’s soup got a kosher certification, nowadays there are certainly more certified kosher foods than ever before and it keeps on growing. Most everything seems to have some variety that has a kosher option. But sometimes you see foods, and it just makes you wonder, how on earth did someone think that would be allowed. It’s called ham.
I feel like bacon bits was the first bomb in kosher certification- the first WTF flavor we experienced. Almost a guilt came with tasting those crunchy bits in a salad. Are there any flavors, trief or otherwise that we have not seem replicated in a kosher version? Mock crab, fakin’ bacon, soy cheese burgers are almost common place. Israeli versions of Doritios and Mentos put those tastes to bed.
Is there anything left that we consider the emblematic trief food? It’s hard to recall. Marshmellow based cereals?
Check out some of the flavors below and realize how far brands are going and more importantly how far our kosher certifications are going to ensure that kosher food isnt limited to the standard foods and flavors these days:
