back in 2000, I used to get sweets from the pick and mix...I was oblivious to the prevalence of gelatine in sweets.

I can get more non-gelatine sweets (not vegetarian) than the marshmallows for the same price.

You are going to have to make decisions in life. These decisions all come with consquences. If saving a couple euros on candy makes you more fulfilled than eating cruelty-free sweets, go ahead. Just realize that you are supporting an industry involved in animal slaughter so that you can have less expensive marshmallows.

OK, I have answered dozens of your questions. Please answer a few for me.

1. Why do you want to go veg?

2. How old are you?

3. Is English your first language?

4. Will you please keep your questions to one thread, as you have been asked several times already? Your repetitive question threads are clogging up the whole board. Please stop it. Thank you.

For the animals.

23.

Yes. Why do you ask?

You know what they say about bridges and those who live under them, eh?

Anyway, Oreos are the best snack ever. Try some of those.

Life sucks without laughter so do that more often.

Veggie gel sachet
450g granulated sugar
170ml cup water
A pinch of salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Icing sugar

Is this vegan or vegetarian?

Never seen the attraction of marshmallows personally. Too sweet and the texture give me the boak.

If you are in the US then as long as you use sugar that hasn't been through the bone char process the above list is both vegetarian and vegan.

Certified vegan recipe here if you are still worried.

Dr. Oetker Baking Hi, they would be vegetarian. There are no animal products contained in Vege-Gel but it is produced on a line which also handles products containing milk and eggs, so there a risk of cross contamination which makes it unsuitable for vegans. Hope this helps

They said that. Damn.

Are you vegan now?

Also, to me, that doesn't make something non-vegan.

That's just to cover themselves legally in case someone has a severe allergy that could be triggered by trace ingredients.

You would be hard pushed to find a factory that only processes vegan food, so legally they have to mention the possibility of cross contamination.

@Liquinn

"Products suitable for vegans may not be suitable for those living with allergies. Vegans avoid using non-human animals. Those living with severe allergies must avoid all traces of the allergens which affect them. These are very different issues.

Currently, allergens that must be labelled on foods and come from animals include crustaceans, fish, cow's milk, hen's eggs and molluscs. Companies must work out whether the foods they produce could contain any traces of the known allergens. If there is an unavoidable risk, the company should include a ‘may contain…’ label about the allergen."
