FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Based on consumer feedback and preferences, Smucker’s® Uncrustables® sandwiches were reformulated in 2017 to replace high fructose corn syrup with non-GMO sugar. Please be assured, we were careful to maintain the delicious taste you and your family have come to love from Smucker’s Uncrustables sandwiches.

 

Keep Uncrustables sandwiches frozen until ready to eat. Thaw 30 to 60 minutes at room temperature. Enjoy our classic crimped sandwiches within 6 to 8 hours of thawing for best flavor. Our Bites should be enjoyed within 2 hours of thawing at room temperature.

 

Uncrustables® products are not considered vegan.

 

Because of ongoing supply chain pressures and rising demand, our team made the difficult decision to remove kosher certification from Smucker′s® Uncrustables® products. The change took effect in mid-2022.

Our product formulation is not impacted by the removal of kosher certification, and we don′t anticipate a noticeable change in the flavor or texture of Uncrustables® sandwiches — but continuing kosher certification would have kept us from putting out products fast enough to keep stores stocked. We apologize for any disappointment or inconvenience this change causes you and your family.

If you′re looking for kosher alternatives to our PB&J-style sandwiches, many Smucker′s® fruit spreads and Jif® peanut butter products are still certified kosher by the Orthodox Union.

What are the global supply chain issues causing this change?

Ongoing pressures across the global supply chain are impacting a number of our ingredients. One specific example is Kosher certified grapes, as there is currently a significant shortage of Kosher grapes in the marketplace.

This, along with increased demand for our products and continued challenges in sourcing our other ingredients, has resulted in the removal of Kosher certification for all Smucker’s® Uncrustables® products.
