Kosher chocolate is a popular dessert and gift item for Jewish people, primarily. In the Jewish religion, a Kosher diet must be consumed year-round. The rules of Kosher have been observed for thousands of years and can be found in the Torah. Kosher dietary rules are even stricter during Passover, which lasts eight days each year. Luckily, foods and desserts that are Kosher and Kosher for Passover are certified and labeled properly.
