If you could pick one item to be Vegan that you either can not find currently or have a difficult time finding a quality product that is Vegan what would it be and what changes would you make if any?

I should have phrased this better ( I agree though! I miss rice krispies)<br><br>
What everyday products (non-food related) do you see a vegan need for?

I was going to say vegan brie and halloumi cheese. Non-food related, hmm. I'm not sure. I have to order my shoes and boots from online stores mostly so probably I would like to see more quality non-leather footwear and more of a range of winter coats without a small percentage of wool. That narks me.

Thank you! I am asking because I am working on starting a line of vegan accessories. Iphone cases, wallets, belts (to start) (<a href="http://www.StrummerAttire.com" target="_blank">www.StrummerAttire.com</a>) eventually handbags and shoes. I agree the market for footwear especially dress shoes is horrible. Also I see little to no faux leather belts, wallets, and iphone/ipad cases. I have a background in the office furniture industry and about 4-5 years ago I started seeing a lot of great faux leathers being made. So I though if these work for chairs that are sat in 8 hours a day why not shoes and wallets? We have tested some faux leathers with some great results. I simply want to see what everyone thinks is missing in the vegan marketplace. Thank you for the continued responses

I got my Dad a canvas case with his kindle<br><br><a href="http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/logik-kindle-4-folio-case-purple-11402550-pdt.html" target="_blank">http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/logik-...02550-pdt.html</a> like this but black. A few people at my work got their kindle cases in Tesco for £10 so i doubt theyre real leather, but look like it. Were talking about it today funnily enough.<br><br>
Anyway for meee, a decent lip balm. Im still on my never-ending quest. when its really cold only the medicated nonvegan ones help.

I agree with Pixie about the coats. It often something like 10% wool or less, which is so annoying. It's so difficult to find a warm coat that isn't extortionately priced. It's the same with thick jumpers; in fact, sometimes they're only 3% wool or something pointless like that.

I can't think of a single food I enjoy eating that hasn't already been made vegan.
