Are the new smarties halal without artificial colors?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftisays.com
Assalamu Alaykum,

The new smarties do not have artificial colours as part of its ingredient. Is it now halal?


In the Name of Allah, the Inspirer of Truth.
Assalamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

I would translate “artificial” as synthetc (man-made), so the product can have animal or vegetable ingredients hence it cannot mean that it is Halaal, on
the basis of this information.
