Does anyone know? I did a search on google but I couldn't find anything... Does it depend on the brand? I got a free candy cane at school, and I don't know whether I should eat it or give it to someone else.<br><br><br><br>
Thanks everyone!

They should just be made out of sugar, corn syrup, peppermint oil, <a href="http://www.red40.org/pages/chemistry.html" target="_blank">FD&C Red 40</a>, and <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Titanium_dioxide" target="_blank">titanium dioxide</a>. All of which should be vegan, although I don't know about the sugar. This is assuming it's your standard issue red/white candy cane and not of the fancy flavored/colored ones. I say eat it.<br><br>

You can't be sure that the sugar isn't bone-chared though. But other than that they are usually vegan.<br><br><br><br>
Pure Fun makes vegan candy canes! (i think Bob's might be vegan too).<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.purefun.ca/" target="_blank">http://www.purefun.ca/</a><br><br><br><br>
A store near me sells the Pure Fun candy canes. So I am a happy girl!<br><br>
(Outpost Natural Foods here in Milwaukee, WI)<br><br><br><br>
You can also buy them at Vegan Essentials web site! (I think they are on backorder right now though)

better question... does anyone know of any red/white candy canes that are NOT vegan? (i'm given a bunch of candy canes randomly, so I never know the brand, therefore I can't check...)
