When something you have happily been noshing on appears to *gasp* have liquid egg whites!!! Or something else. This just happened to me...Argh...happened once before with some other cookies, i thought they made most or all of their non dairy, but nooo.... I was just scanning for butter, did not check for eggs, and all the way down the list.<br><br><br><br>
Wanna write to newmans own and ask them to remove the egg whites from their champion chip cookies? <a href="http://www.newmansownorganics." target="_blank">www.newmansownorganics.</a><br><br><br><br>
Also, wanna write to Ben And Jerry's for...vegan ice cream? (note:You have to be 18. I did not read the fine print, wrote 2, rejected twice) . <a href="http://www.benjerry.com/ca/" target="_blank">http://www.benjerry.com/ca/</a> <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Seems like they might actually do it! If we can get some letters through. Ben and Jerry's does, however, make the best sorbet I have ever had.

I have thought a few times that really, the best way to invoke change, would be "hacking at the root", writing to the Big Guns. But...I think the little ones will listen. Even though B&J was just bought by someone.<br><br><br><br>
When I realizzed my yummy orange cookies were non vegan I started laughing, honestly and grimacing. When it is something i did not buy, I get mad and annoyed. My dad bought some vegetarian pizza. Uh, scuse me, cheese aint non dairy. Argh. Soooome people....

That was nice of your dad to buy you a vegetarian pizza! At least he tried.

This has happened to me, too. I used to eat a kind of Progresso vegetable soup that was always in the store next to the vegetarian ones they make, which includes Lentil and Vegetable with Barley. Foolishly, I never bothered to check the ingrediants on the one I was eating, and I eventually did and discovered that it had chicken broth in it. I can tell you, I was a lot more careful after that! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I'm still transitioning to veganism, so if I find that I've inadvertently purchased something non-vegan, I go ahead and finish what I've purchased and make a mental note not to buy it again. ^_^

Yeah, my mom knows I'm vegan too... but sometimes she sees the word "vegetarian" and assume I can eat it... so I know she's trying to be really nice and go out of her way to get me something special to eat, so I try not to be rude when I tell her that vegetarian doesn't always mean animal-free....

I don't know how many times that's happened to me... I'm much better about checking for ingredients than I used to be. If it has chicken, beef, pork, etc in it, I'm not even tempted. The gelatin and mono and diglycerides are harder because I see them in so many more things that I want.

If it appears not to be Vegan, I go and return it (when not opened).<br><br><br><br>
People barely know what vegetarian means, not to mention Vegan.<br><br>
I cannot aspect everybody to carry a card that lists all non-Vegan food additives, so Ill do the shopping myself.<br><br><br><br>
Shadow-panther can still laugh when its not Vegan, while I just manage not to curse when the product has been improved with eggs or something.

*dances around with glee* I just noticed today that over half of these specialty breads the store I work at sells are VEGAN!!! I was totally not expecting that, and since I'm not responsible for that particular bread display, I hadn't gotten around to reading the ingredient lists on these particular german/russian breads. I read the Russian Rye label first, was mildly surprised, but when I discovered that five other kinds of bread from the same distributor were also vegan, I was tempted to burst out into song!<br><br><br><br>
See, I'm currently lacto-ovo but trying to ease myself into veganism.

I luaghed because I had just eaten about 3 and I thought they were "so good", organ palm oil...argggh. I dont usually laugh.<br><br>
Usually I figure I shall finish it off, for the past months I have been a basically-a-vegan.<br><br>
On the subject of breads, does anyone know if those less then 2% of....lists in common breads are traces or added in??? If traces I dont care....When I travel those are the only options.

Amen! Hehe, I find myself reading everything 2 or 3 times through just to make sure some times. Not to mention there are only about 5 restaurants in my area that I really trust what they say. Im to cautious for my own good -.-

Oh yeah, I'm a pretty paranoid vegan myself, especially with restraunts. Though Im a shy un too, I dont always ASK. Usually by the time I am double guessing, I've already ordered!

One thing I learned to do is usually call ahead. You can either be pleasantly surprised or get a huge warning hehe. For Valentines day there were 3 new places I was thinking of taking my gf, so I called ahead. One place had many vegan dishes, including some even titled "So and Soes Vegan Delite", and I would have never known without calling.<br><br><br><br>
If you have some places that you want to try but arent sure, take 3 minutes and call ahead. Just when someone answers, right away ask to talk to someone that really knows the menu well, and then ask away! Ive found many vegan friendly places that way <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

That's a good idea because I'm a bit shy about asking too. I'd rather eat plain salad (hold the dressing) to avoid a fuss! Lol! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">
