Yes, they’re still kosher!

Now, our household isn’t Jewish, so we don’t keep kosher, but I’m finding that I have more and more friends that are and that do follow dietary restrictions, so I’ve been trying to find out a little more about it and what it means.

In doing a little research today on Kosher foods, I ran across this article in the New York Times. It seems that the Girl Scouts seemed to have missed some important labeling on their boxes this year. They left off their kosher certification!

So if you do keep kosher and you do like to indulge in that box (or 5) of Thin Mints, feel free to dig in. According to the Orthodox Union everything is, well…kosher.

Also, if you are looking for Girl Scout cookies, they are being sold now, but only for a short time. If you don’t know of any scouts in your area, you should check out GirlScoutCookies.org for help in connecting with a local troop to buy. Girl Scouts are -not- allowed to sell over the internet, so I’d be suspicious of any to good to be true eBay sales and the like!
