I bought some stuff from TJ's this past weekend and one of the was a pack of dried mango, cranberries and blueberries - named Triple Fruit Treat. What could be bad about that? I didn't even bother to check the ingredients (especially considering all the other things I got from them that day had vegan symbols on them). Well, today I glanced at the ingredients (after eating some yesterday). It contains glycerin. I checked out their vegan & vegetarian pdf sheets of their products and this one isn't on them. I'm afraid this pack of dried fruit doesn't contain vegetarian friendly glycerin.<br><br>
Trader Joe's - you let me down. Something that should absolutely be vegan isn't even vegetarian? Come on!

No I didn't contact them yet, but I do plan to. But there is no glimmer of hope. I looked it up online (various websites) and the package had no indications about it being veg*n. I bought a lot of their name brand products this weekend and they all had the word vegan on them except this one. If I get a response from them about this, I will post it in this thread.

I'm glad it is vegetarian after all <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> I wouldn't have even considered that their dried fruit was not vegetarian! I guess this is just a good reminder to check and double-check every label!

When I read this, I was shocked! Most Trader Joe's products are veg*n, so for dried fruit not to be, was a bit weird. Glad to hear you can finish eating it now <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I'd recommend editing the title of this thread and updating the first post so people don't get confused when they do google searches.

I would never of thought of GLYCERIN being an ingrediaent in dreid fruit! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/undecided.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":-/"> I always check the dried-fruit labels for added sugar and junk anyways.<br>
I always thought dried cranberries tasted waxy. Blegh.

Me, too. I admit, it was quite tasty and hard to resist while waiting for a response.<br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

I don't have the power to edit the title. If a mod wants to intervene and maybe add something like "resolved: it is vegetarian", that would be awesome.<br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

Me, neither! That's why I didn't bother checking the ingredients. It's just fruit, I thought.
