Does anyone know if the vanilla syrup made by Fox is kosher for Passover?

    Kosher (non-Passover) certified, according to their primary authorized distributor.

      In the past it was, under the hechsher of R. Solomon Shapiro of KGH, but now that he has passed away, I'm not sure if anyone has taken over the hashgacha.

      There are usually other Jewish brands available, if you have access and are OK with those.

        Yes its Kosher and for passover they use real cane sugar instead of fructose. Taste better I stock up During Passover.

          I saw a bottle yesterday @Gourmet Glatt and it said kosher for Passover and year round, and parve. The chocolate flavor had a special seal on the neck of the bottle, I think that was the dairy flavor, not the parve chocolate.

                It is now certified by Rabbi Shapiro's son and it is accepted by the cRc.

                  Thanks! I saw it in Pomegranate, and since they're under 2 extremely strict hashgachos, that's enough for me! I bought both dairy and parve varieties.

                    >>under 2 extremely strict hashgachos

                    Wow I am impressed. I didn't plan on buying any syrups this year but I may change my mind now :)

                    A few years ago there was a brand of milk called Machmirim, whose slogan was “Anachnu Machmirim Bnei Machmirim,” it was bristling with hashgachos, it was actually under four hashgachos - the Vaad Hakashrus of Skver, Khal Adath Jeshurun (KAJ), the Nirbater Rov (Rav Aharon Teitelbaum), and the Orthodox Union (OU), now that's what you call kosher! Drinking that milk surely guaranteed you a seat at the kisei hakavod.
