Bacon Flavoured Crisps, they're kosher, but are they moral?
An ethical one for you all. I currently teach at a Jewish Sunday School (a Cheder), and the children are offered a break midway through the morning, and often bring snacks. One girl brought with her a packet of Walker's Smoky Bacon Crisps, and when confronted by my colleagues, she rightfully pointed out they are kosher, since there is no actual meat involved. But what of the morality of this? Is the idea of eating bacon flavoured crisps kosher?
I wonder what they use to imitate the flavor of bacon? (I can't imagine it's good for your health!) I think it's a little strange, and ideally a Jew wouldn't even go for "bacon-flavored", but I can't really argue that it actually violates any moral, except that it seems vaguely dishonest. My Jewish boyfriend thinks it is inappropriate (and he is by no means "orthodox"). At the very least, does she have to bring them to Cheder? It kind of rubs it in the other kids' faces, don't you think?
Kosher means, "That which is allowed" and has nothing to do with morality.
