Would anyone know what the red and green marks on food items especially chocolate wrappers mean?  Just wondering if it's got anything to do with Halal and Haram foods.  More concerned about chocolates because I see it most often while buying it for my nieces and nephews.

Yeah brother, for we Muslims it does have to do with Halal and Haram. 

In chocolates red indicates that it does or might contain ingredients consisting of animal extracts like gelatin. Green indicates the product contains no animal products.   

Such red and green dots are seen on several other food packages as well.  Red signifies non-vegetarian contents while the green indicates a fully vegetarian item.

You might also often find fresh samosas sold at stores carrying the red and green mark.  Red mark indicates minced meat samosas while green mark indicates veggie samosas.

Thanks a lot sister.  This puts my mind at ease.  And what about those chocolate wrappers which don't have red & green indications e.g. cadburys?  Any idea?

Cadbury .. yeah.  Good you asked.  I forgot to specify it.  Well, most of Cadbury products which we would buy for the kids are Halal.  But there are several cadbury stuff that are Haram too.  The Haram ones are usually recognizable from their names e.g. wine gums or fruit gums which contain either alcohol or gelatin.  You can get a full list of Halal and Haram Cadbury products in the list given in the following link:

http://www.eathalal.ca/2009/01/cadbury-products-halal-or-haram.html

The weird Haram items listed in red are not the sort of stuff we buy anyway.  The kind of chocolates we get for the kids and also sometimes much ourselves are all in the Halal category.
