Kosher News To Chew On: Wrigley's Going Kosher?

On Oct. 6th Mars successfully completed it's acquisition of Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company. The questions for consumers is if Mars Corp, which has most of it's products under kosher certification (namely the orthodox union) will attempt to acquire the OU's certification over Wrigely products. Kosher Wrigley gum is only available in kosher stores and is imported from the UK ( pic on right). Wrigley had considered going kosher even before the buyout but now it may become a reality.
