After a camp trip to Hershey Park, there was some confusion as to the kashrus of Kettle Corn Popcorn - it is apparently certified under the "Buggy K" by Rabbi Shaya Sackett, Rav of Degel Israel, an OU shul in Lancaster, PA. Any ideas as to the kashrus of the popcorn?

    Not sure what you expect in the way of an answer. According to the website of SweetandSalty Snacks.com all products made, sold & served at the Hershey Park Kettle Korn concession are certified kosher/parve. sweetnsaltysnacks.com/#kosher – Yaacov Deane May 30 '17 at 13:45

    According to the Kosherquest.org web site, the Buggy K supervision is reliable. kosherquest.org/kosher-symbols – Yaacov Deane May 30 '17 at 13:47

I checked with the Star-K in Baltimore (410-484-4110) this morning (Erev Shavuos 5777) and they said that the product (Kettle Corn Popcorn) is fine and verified the Hechsher certification.

I also found at KosherQuest.org

These Kosher Symbols are approved by Rabbi Eidlitz and the Kosher Information Bureau.

Vaad of Tidewater Virginia also lists this as an approved kosher symbol

BaDatz of Canada also lists this as a reliable hechsher.

  • @sabbahillel Rabbi Sackett received semicha from Ner Yisroel. lancasteronline.com/lancaster/news/… – Yaacov Deane May 30 '17 at 13:53
  • @YaacovDeane While that my be an indication, it is better to check the actual hechsher rather than where he received semicha. – sabbahillel May 30 '17 at 13:55
  • @sabbahillel Not disagreeing. I also listed the KosherQuest.org reference in my comment to the OP. But some people may prefer more independent references that Star-K, like you also listing BaDatz of Canada. Star-K is strongly affiliated with Ner Yisroel via Rav Heinemann. – Yaacov Deane May 30 '17 at 15:18
