Is there any candy out there that is safe to eat?

I thought I heard that skittles or starbursts were.

Hey AuroraLily,

I know that PETA has a whole list of veg*an candies. I know that twizzlers are on that list. They companies on the list do contain white sugar but that is only an issue for some veg*ans.

As for Skittles and Starburst you can definately buy the vegan variety on many sites like

They are vegan in the UK...I don't know about anywhere else. But the ones sold in Canada and the USA have gelatin in them.

I will look for the PETA list and post the link

Okay I found the list on

But I just copied it here:

A note about sugar: Some of the products listed here may contain cane sugar. Most contain high fructose corn syrup. If you are a vegan who avoids refined cane sugar, please read the labels carefully and/or contact the companies that make these products and find out if they use beet or cane sugar.
