Chick-o-sticks rule! I just bought one the other day and feasted heartily. For those who don't know they are a stick of candy like the inside of a Butterfinger with a bit of coconut thrown in. Woo hoo!

I thought Mambas had gelatin in them? Granted, this was many years ago that I checked, they could've changed.

Hot Tamales and Mike & Ikes aren't vegan because they have beeswax... and Starburst Jellybeans have shellac if I remember right ..


(it's very annoying when they don't put this stuff on the labels!! argh)

Right now I'm craving some of those Goldenberg Peanut Chews.. yum

Thanks for bursting my bubble, OZ! I was so looking forward to having some Hot Tamales!! Oh, well...guess I'll just have to keep on eating the Swedish Fish. Mmmm....Swedish Fish...

I also thought Mambas had gelatin...perhaps they have recently changed their formula...that would be cool.

I didn't do the research - I only posted the email from PETA. If any of this is not true, I'm sorry. I was kind of wondering about a couple of them myself. I can link the news letter from peta if you would like.

FYI for truely vegan delights Pangea and Vegan Essentials does stock holiday themed products for the kids or those with a sweet tooth. Pangea even offers vegan skittles and Starburst alone with vegan sour gummy candies.

yup, and if you live in the UK, you can get vegan skittles and starburst as the norm. Also, uncle joes mint balls are the best. They're vegan as well, even to the extent of the sugar being refines with limestone (Tate & lyle do the refining for uncle joes.)

Just bought Mamba candy yesterday for the first time. Not bad for candy (candy being so full of crap already). Reminded me very much of Starburst, and I didn't notice any gelatin in the ingredients list. Looks like it's a British manufacturer, so that doesn't surprise me after reading Loki's above post.
