    Skittles and starbursts are halaal
    Dunno what jelly ranchers are.

    And you have to say Bismillaah at the start of everything.

      Skittles and Starbursts are Halal? can you show me a link or something that says so

      Jolly Rancher is another brand of candy
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jolly_Rancher
      Idk if they are in the UK but they are in America

      Are you sure that Skittles and Starburst are Halal in the US????????????

      So you have to say Bismillah for every thing you eat or drink right, sometimes I forget

        I haven't bought candies in a long time, but skittles are fine since they no longer have gelatin. You still need to read the label since some of them still do. Don't know about starburst. And it depends on what kind of jolly rancher you want. Some are halal some are not. Just read the label.

        I will say that it's probably cheaper to make your own kind of candy or sweet and it would be a lot healthier too.

            go to muslimconsumergroup.com and look it up there or ask a question on that site
            starburst used to be haram due to gelatin likely from pig source but I dont know if its changed

                says skittles is haram because of the e120 which is a food colouring that comes from insects (beetles?)

                do a search on that website for starburst as well

                  This site says Jolly Rancher is haram since it doesn't have a Halal or Kosher symbol but that doesn't make it haram
                  and its just candy and this was in 2012


                  is Jolly Rancher haram any1 ?????

                        Asslamu Aliakum,

                        I have no idea. You need to speak to the company and see what they have to say. Try finding their contact details on their website.

                            turns out that company sells American goods to brits.

                            also dunno how old you are but when you ask people you don't know for stuff you really should use a less demanding tone. instead of 'give me the exact link' it would be better to say 'can i have the exact link'. it just sounds less rude.
