I was a little skeptical of this story when it was first broken by an Australian halal-foods watcher. It didn’t seem rational that one of the worlds largest chocolate manufacturers would make candies specific to christian and Western secular, and in many ways pagan culture tard-safe, or, ‘halal’. Muslims if they had their way would utterly eliminate not just the celebration of Easter but would destroy any trace that it had ever been in existence at all. Just look for evidence of Jewish existence in Medina for instance beyond the fact that Koran brags that the Jews built that city then the Muslims killed and conquered them for it.
I mean why risk 100% of your market for the zero % who will be not eating candies entirely symbolic of Christian and/or pagan mythology. But risk they did. Let us hope Cadbury experiences the drastic and ideally catastrophic loss of sales they richly deserve for this one.
In fact this might be a great opportunity for people to learn how to make chocolate treats at home from scratch. It can’t be that hard to do and would probably be a lot of fun for the family as well.
Cadbury to Muslims: Our candy is sharia-compliant
As Cadbury ramps up its inventory for Easter, a little-known fact has come to light about its candies — many are sharia-compliant.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald, halal certification has become a big business as sharia law continues to extend throughout Australian culture.
