Are you sure? I read their ingredients, and I may not remember correctly, but I know I read something there that prevented me from eating any.

Yeah - Do watch out. I have seen non-vegetarian products labelled as "gelatin-free" And they were jelly beans. I scoured the ingredients and found E120 - Carmine. The label said gelatin-free but this should not be interpreted as "Vegetarian"

That's great! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
I'm sorry to vent, but, I am so FREAKING sick of gelatin!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/mad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":mad:"> The garbage is in EVERYTHING! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><br><br><br><br>
Let me tell ya, I don't give a flying crap about meat, but it really irks me that I'll never be able to have Frosted Mini Wheats, or *gulp* candy corn ever again!! *cries* <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

OK.... so i was in the store and noticed a box of this. It was just because I remembered this thread that I picked it up.<br><br><br><br>
Holy ##$^#&^&! The thing must have like 50 ingredients, I kid you not. The ingredient list was so long it went from the top all the way to the bottom of the box!!! And what a lot of crap ingredients! Is there ANYTHING in there with real nutritional value?<br><br><br><br>
Vegan or not, isn't there some better snack for those who need it? I personally think dried fruits and nuts are brilliant snack foods - though I never snack myself.<br><br><br><br>
But excuse the intrusion, carry on.... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I KNOW!!!! You just totally said what I thought when I first looked at the back of those things. Man, that's a BOOK, not ingredients! And gibberish as well, who the heck knows what all that crap even is? They could be feeding you rat poison for all that you know, lol.<br><br><br><br>
Better snack: brozen banana chunks, YUMMM

I see what you're saying, Oatmeal. I love dried fruits and nuts, but sometimes, they just don't hit the spot. I believe a little junk food here and there is beneficial to your health. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/cool3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cool:"><br><br><br><br>
You know, I think I'm going to write to Brach's and ask them about coming out with gelatin-free candy corn.
