Unfortunately this list is not quite correct. It's vastly better to just check labels than to write off all "sour cream" as containing gelatine.

yogurts ---- many yogurts do not have gelatine ---
Green Giant frozen vegetables (in a bag) - not even kidding! link
it under the section that says - Vegetables- Frozen (bag)
icing/frosting --- Not the way I make it. Most doesn't, but you may have to look. ---
cream cheese usually doesn't, but maybe check the label.
sour cream --- proper sour cream should not have gelatine, some cheaper, crappy brands may have it ---
as I discover more, I'll post them, and if anyone else has anything to add, just post it, and I'll add it to the list.
The best way to be certain though is to just read the ingredients.
Just about anything with frosting or icing. --- incorrect. When I make icing it is just icing sugar, margarine and flavourings. A lot of icing is just that, too. ---
And remember, just because you accidently eat some gelatin, it doesn't mean you're no longer a vegetarian.
BTW, a mod should probably make this a sticky
