Ever since Brunei’s Ministry of Religious Affairs (MoRA) did a lab test and labelled the White Rabbit candy as non-halal, the debate has been ongoing.
The Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Fuziah Salleh informed TV Al Hijrah that our favourite childhood candy is officially non-halal and thus, certified haram.
The National Chemistry Department ran a test on the sweet milky sweet and found traces of cow and pig DNA in it. As previously reported, Muslim consumers have been advised to avoid the Chinese-made product even though it went viral over the past few months.
As you may know, foodies have not just been introduced to White Rabbit candy-flavoured ice-cream but also White Rabbit boba tea and cakes. Project Ice Cream and Rumah Gelato are several brands that made the decision to discontinue the White Rabbit dessert. It’s likely that more F&B chains will follow suit.
What a bummer, isn’t it?
