These cookies have no certification on the box itself, it is made in a spanish speaking country. yet they have a sticker with a kosher certification put on them.

    You can call the kashrus organization on the label to verify. – user6591 Jun 23 '15 at 14:26

    Well I don't know your community affiliations, but most people I know don't like relying on triangle k at all. I'm not trying to sway your opinion in any way, But at least in this case of uncertainty, it may be something to think about. – user6591 Jun 23 '15 at 14:34

This label is on many products in Israel. In my experience, most people do trust the sticker labels; however, to be safe, when you see a product with the kosher certification stuck on a sticker to the box, it certainly cannot hurt to call the certifying agency to confirm that they do supervise that particular item.

As a separate issue, many people do not rely on the particular kosher certifying agency shown on this label (Triangle-K). The majority of major kashrus agencies do not recommend consuming food with only the Triangle-K certification.

See this question and its answers.

  • It's worth noting that the kashrut of these cookies have been approved by the Israeli rabbinate, as shown inside the marked circle. Even if "many people do not rely" on Triangle-K, the Israeli rabbinate considers them reliable. – Aryeh Jun 30 '15 at 14:36
