I've been thinging about christmas and my belly.I planned to buy nuts, dried fruit and sweets to munch on,as we tend to get alot of choccies which i'm trying to avoid
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.

Tayla 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'

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.

The fabulous free from factory chocolate coated raisins are ok though

Go Vegan I love to eat marzipan as a sweet too sometimes

Jati 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 :-)

dropscone 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.

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.

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!

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.

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!
