    Red m&ms (OP)


    Assalamu alaykum,

    So I just discovered that m&ms aren't halal, at least the red ones aren't as they contain carmine - I was a little horrified because I absolutely adore m&ms and I could (and have) eaten bucketfuls of them as I assumed they'd just be halal, which is of course a mistake I'll learn from.

    Anyway, I was discussing this a sister I know. As it is only the red ones which are not halal, would it be okay to just not eat the red ones and eat the other colours, or is it better to just not eat them altogether?

    I was thinking there would be an issue about contamination, even if it is a dry food.

    I'm just trying not to count right now the number of red m&ms I have eaten in my life .

    Coffee it has to be. A big mug of hot coffee and then you dip your chocolate cookies to there. Be normal. Be Finnish.

    Noooo, it has to be milk tea..like chai or karak. Otherwise regular cookies with tea like butter cookies...But coffee with cookies is not bad either.

    Meh. I don't like either coffee or tea. I don't like soggy biscuits either, because they remind me of biscuits which have been left out too long. Crunchy biscuits all the way.

    And gosh I love McVities digestives, perhaps it's good thing they always seem to be sold out by the time I come.

    Last time I checked, a lot of the mainstream chocolate brands have a lot of additives and unknowns in their ingredients which is why I've tried avoiding them, but there are plenty of (safe) options to choose from in regards to chocolate. There are a lot of chocolates that have simple / natural ingredients and are way better than m&ms. Go for chocolate covered (peanuts, raisins, walnuts, almonds, cashews, etc). Those types of chocolates usually ​have good ingrediants in them, but always check regardless.

    I LOVE Hazelnut chocolates. They taste soo good! especially because it feels so crunchy when eating.

    Back in the day, I made my own muffins. you can make your own chocolate bars. Lol. Just use Youtube for that. One better check the ingredients tho.

    The E-numbers are hard to keep track of.

    Allahu alam.

    Wa alaykum assalam,

    I've had it almost up to here with those E-colours - I'd never have known if I hadn't by coincidence just accidentally come across that online.

    I love making muffins and brownies - and probably the best thing (apart from taste) is the security of knowing it is completely and utterly halal, alhamdulillah.

    Smarties are okay as a replacement I suppose, they're brightly coloured and round little chocolates, so they'll do.
