    What is the general opinion about buying candy canes? Does it send the wrong messege to our kids? Is it chukas hagoyim and we need to run as far away as we can from it? Or do we say its kosher, it has a hechsher so buying them is elevating the impure? How do we grapple with this challenge?

    This is most pressing challenge ive come across on a very long time which affects the orthodox community!

    I’ve long felt that if something else will make them happy (ie, a ring pop candy, reminiscent of Eliezer’s gifts in the parsha) why not just use that? They’re a cheap and fully kosher alternative.

    I hate to be the mussarathon giver around here, but I don’t think it’s sensitive to talk about canes on such a public forum. Who knows how many chashuva senior citizens are reading this and thinking: If only my problems were with candy canes! My grandmother used to use a real real cane! Oy rachmana litzlan

    Maybe this is a chance to make a kiddish hashem. When shreklacha goyim see chushuva yidden walking around with holiday fare in such such a tzniusdikka manner, what could be better? May it be a melitz yosher for us!!

    I have been buying and eating kosher candy canes for years.

    It’s about the same thing as candy pumpkins.
