Glad they arrived!
:-)

You made my whole week!

I shared the black curranty-goodness with some coworkers (That's really the only difference between US and UK Skittles... purple is black currant instead of grape).

I'm seriously eating skittles for breakfast!

Whee! Glad to get you a Skittles fix!

If you asked your local kosher store, would they consider importing them?

I don't think they could. I think there's an issue with importing the British version of a product available in the US. Like, amazon.com.uk can't send the UK edition of the Harry Potter books to the US. I'm not explaining it well, but I think there's a legal issue with importation.

*Sigh* But don't they realize the great untapped markets?! I mean, if I'm willing to pay extra for a different version, why wouldn't they want to give me what I want; they get their money, after all. (I understand that the law is as it is, I just don't understand why it should be that way...)

(So what I've got to do is work out a deal with a friend in the UK, shipping maple syrup and dill pickles and such, and getting Skittles and lime pickle and interesting-er chocolates :-)

That's interesting, because it's not legal. Seriously.

BUT YES I WANT THEM!!! ARE YOU CRAZY?????

I'm missing #3 from a boxed set. Never lend your prized foreign editions out to a slovenly cow, is what I'm sayin'.

Oooooh! Yummy kosher Skittles! Walt and I bought a few made-in-the-UK jars in Amsterdam in March, and I finally made him take them out of the house because they were just too good.

So that means you wouldn't want any more around, then?
ichur72 From: ichur72 Date: June 3rd, 2005 01:29 pm (UTC) (Link)
Well, "want" and "need" are two different things. Skittles are so incredibly tasty that I sometimes end up eating them until my taste buds freak out from all the sugar and beg for mercy. Given that Baby needs something more than sugar, I figured it would be best if Walt removed the temptation.

I guessed it was a pretty much one-time deal. ;)

Besides, you didn't bring me back skittles from London. ;)

Omg! Kosher Skittles? WTF?

Where can I get me some?
magid From: magid Date: June 3rd, 2005 02:39 pm (UTC) (Link)
England.
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: June 3rd, 2005 02:40 pm (UTC) (Link)
In the UK skittles are kosher. Just not here. I always wondered whether Canadian skittles were kosher...I guess I got my answer.

Oh how we wish... mmm, skittles!
magid From: magid Date: June 3rd, 2005 09:21 pm (UTC) (Link)

if you'd like a bag

Email me your snail mail address?
(The LJ email for me works.)

I wonder if Kosher Food Warehouse would bring them in? They bring in kosher Smarties from South Africa...
