  1. since when does lindor chocolate have a hechsher? i have looked for one in the past and not seen it.

    1. Lindor chocolate does NOT have a hechsher with the sole exceptions of their truffles (not all the flavors). Their truffles have a Kof-K dairy (chalav stam). You can actually see it on the bottom right side of the box.
