It is so frustrating. Pop-tarts were my favorite treat as a kid. I was so disappointed to learn that they contained gelatin once I became a vegetarian. Why can't Kelloggs use another gelling agent like agar or pectin?

I never knew that. When you switch to veg* you find out so much stuff you cant eat.<br><br>
If you or someone you live with likes to cook here are some recipes I found (not my recipes, just a random google search)<br><br><a href="http://heydayfashionblog.blogspot.com/2010/02/homemade-pop-tarts-vegan.html" target="_blank">http://heydayfashionblog.blogspot.co...rts-vegan.html</a><br><br><a href="http://dairyfreecooking.about.com/od/breakfastbrunch/r/Homemade_Vegan_Pop_Tarts_Recipe.htm" target="_blank">http://dairyfreecooking.about.com/od...rts_Recipe.htm</a><br><br><a href="http://vegansaurus.com/post/297366184/recipe-pop-tarts" target="_blank">http://vegansaurus.com/post/297366184/recipe-pop-tarts</a>

I think the unfrosted Cinnamon and maybe Apple are veg*n, but that's it, also no fun since they don't have icing. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

Certain unfrosted flavors are vegetarian. Also Amy's are vegan too and much better for you.<a href="http://www.amyskitchen.com/products/product-detail/breakfast/000184" target="_blank">http://www.amyskitchen.com/products/...eakfast/000184</a>

I may be mistaken, but I believe Nature's Path Organic Toaster Pastries are vegetarian (although not vegan). Anyone know for sure? I'm not a toaster pastry eater, so I can't vouch for the taste.

I've never eaten a pop tart, but if it's the icing that has gelatine, you could always buy the plain ones and ice your own. That way you can lick the bowl too <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

The gelatin is in the frosting, not the filling. The unfrosted ones are vegan.</div>

Sounds right, that must be why I had that impression.

I'm pretty sure the unfrosted ones are suitable for vegetarians. The strawberry ones are ok tasting, chocolate fudge on the other hand.. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/spew.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":spew:">
