It looks like it but I could be wrong. People say skittles aren't but I don't see how. My friend has celiacs and a casein intolerance and says foods say they don't have dairy in them but they really do. So confusing

No. Junior Mints contain gelatin *cries* so they're not even vegetarian, much less vegan.<br><br>
I miss Junior Mints. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

I too miss Junior Mints!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/bigcry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cry:"><br>
I haven't anything vegan that matches that creamy mint. Endangered Species Mint dark chocolate is good though it's just mint flavor choco.<br><br>
Some Skittles have gelatin-others don't. The crazy core actually said gelatin free on the package. Other than gelatin I don't believe theres anything else to worry about.<br><br>
At Christmas time Junior Mints put out Christmas colored ones that are identical without gelatin. I say e-mail them till they cave!

Why you gotta break my heart, Jr. Mints?!<br><br>
They do the gelatin-free ones for Easter, too. Has anyone written them? If not, I totally will.

It does on the ones I've looked at. From several websites:<br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">Junior Mints Ingredients: sugar, semi-sweet chocolate (sugar, chocolate, cocoa butter, soya lecithin – an emulsifier, vanillin – an artificial flavor), corn syrup, confectioner’s glaze, modified food starch, peppermint oil, invertase (an enzyme that breaks down sucrose into glucose and fructose), soya albumin (a natural form of water-soluble soy protein), gelatin</div>
</div>
<br>
American Skittles (the red bag ones) should be vegan. I just looked when we were there about 3 weeks ago, and they were junk food for sure, but animal-free. <a href="http://www.zeer.com/Food-Products/Skittles-Original-Bite-Size-Candies/8a78c6e0213ae3fa01213bae3e0d12cb" target="_blank">http://www.zeer.com/Food-Products/Sk...213bae3e0d12cb</a>. I don't really know about the sugar I suppose.

It's the very last ingredient too. The peppermint crunch ones that come out around Christmas have no gelatin. Are you reading an ingredients list on a box you own?

I wonder if the gelatin is only in the shell?

I think they recently dropped the gelatin, although I haven't looked at any labels recently. I think the coating contains confectioner's glaze, though.

Yeah, a quick search shows that they are still listed as containing gelatin the few places I can find. Maybe it was just a rumor..

Do they have confectioner's glaze? It contains shellac, which comes from insects and isn't vegan. So..watch out before the vegan police come and throw you in the beegan looney bin like me..! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I was pretty sure Trader Joe's dark chocolate after dinner mints were vegan...but an internet search is not turning up proof. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/brood.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":brood:"> I will have to check next time I'm there.

I just got Skittles a few weeks ago at the movies after hearing they were vegan, and gelatin was listed on the bag. Very confusing.
