I didn't get a chance to read through the whole thread, so sorry if someone has already mentioned this, but are there any vegetarian/vegan Haribo?

Then they had the dark chocolate mango/apricot covered pieces and also some dark chocolate brazil nuts. There's a dark chocolate selection box too but I don't think I've checked that one out. I'll have to have a look when I'm next in and come post everything they have, I'm sure I'm missing some things.



I was hoping they'd do a dark chocolate advent calendar but it only seems we're stocking a milk one, which sucks. Montezumas do a vegan one if anyone wants one this Christmas!



I have the Divine dark chocolate advent caldendar hanging above my bed right now! You're right-Oxfam didn't sell it, but mine is from my local health food shop (8th Day in Manchester), so you could try one of those if you have one near.

Mars test on animals! But starburst are in "The Animal Free Shopper" I just spent £5 on the 8th edition published last month! Thats disappointing youd think the Vegan Society would get it rite.

My mum bought me an advent calendar but hasn't given it to me yet. I'd put money on it being that one! No idea where she got it though



OH I bought 3 big bags of individual ruffles! In the pound shop! Woo!

In Chorlton. Here's the website: http://www.unicorn-grocery.co.uk/



It's really good, it's all vegan, and has a lot of bulk items that they package themselves, and therefore have better prices. They also carry a lot of items that the 8th Day doesn't.



It's definitely worth a visit. It's also situated right at the end of the Fallowfield loop, so it's very easy to cycle there if you're close to the Loop.

Marks and Spencers are now doing vegetarian versions of many of their jelly sweets, and quite a few are vegan too! The veggie Percys unfortunately contain beeswax, but the Percy's tails look to be okay, as do the fruit pastilles and wine gums.

My faves are Goody Good Stuff. They do really yummy cola bottles, sour sweets, and lots of others. You can get them from big health food stores and online. All their sweets are gelatin free and dairy free, and suitable for vegans :-)

H&B also sell quite a bit of stuff under the name Neals Yard Wholefoods. Unfortunately the "dairy free" plain chocolate coated raisins/peanuts/brazilnuts/cranberries are not suitable for vegans as they contain insect secretions (shellac).

Hi masterof sweets.

This is a list of the Starburst ingredients on the manufacturer's (Wrigleys) UK site:

Quote:
INGREDIENTS
GLUCOSE SYRUP, SUGAR, PALM FAT, MALIC ACID, CITRIC ACID, MODIFIED STARCH, DEXTRIN, CONCENTRATED FRUIT JUICES 0.5%*(APPLE, STRAWBERRY, CHERRY, RASPBERRY), MALTODEXTRIN, FLAVOURINGS, EMULSIFIER SOYBEAN LECITHIN, COLOURS BEETROOT RED, ANTHOCYANINS.*EQUIVALENT TO 4.4% FRUIT JUICE.
As far as I know, Starburst in the UK are ok for vegans.

The ingredients list you refer to seems to be from Starburst USA, and of course contains gelatin meaning they are NOT ok for veggies and vegans.

I know that a lot of tesco's own brand sweets are vegetarian, not sure if they're vegan though.. I would recommend looking through 'accidentlyveganuk's instagram, they are always posting sweets and snack type products that are 'accidentally vegan'

Have you heard of Viva? They have a great shop online and their treats are all vegan. The Ethicoco choc is gorgeous, the orange and ginger one. You can join too if you want as it is a charity too.
