I think it depends on your definition of vegan.

Normal Ingredients: sugar, water, corn syrup, salt, cream of tartar, flavoring oil, and food coloring.

In the United States it's usually based on Red #40 rather than Carmine.

If you're worried about carmine you could look for Kosher Candy Canes just to be safe.

The one I am eating right now isn't carmine

I've found carmine is more often in paler/pinkish things.
