Vegan (alt.food.vegan) This newsgroup exists to share ideas and issues of concern among vegans. We are always happy to share our recipes- perhaps especially with omnivores who are simply curious- or even better, accomodating a vegan guest for a meal!

Default Any lists of UK mainstream vegan sweets out there?

My wife has recently gone vegan having been vegetarian for over 14
years and is feeling the pinch especially with regard to sweets. We've
found a number of sweets that are vegan but so far the list is pretty
feeble.

By mainstream I mean the sort of stuff you could buy in any supermarket
or newsagents, rather than the long list of 'specialist diet' sweets
available for sometimes obscene prices via specialist retaillers and
'health' food shops.

So far we have established the following are vegan...

Sweets

Softmints (Peppermint & Spearmint)
Tutti Frutti's
Jelly Tots
Sherbet Fountains

Crisps

Walkers Lites Ready Salted
Walkers Lites Salt & Vinegar Flavour
Walkers Pickled Onion Flavour Crisps
Walkers Potato Heads Ready Salted
Walkers Potato Heads Sweet BBQ
Walkers Prawn Cocktail Flavour Crisps
Walkers Ready Salted Crisps
Walkers Salt & Shake Crisps
Walkers Salt & Vinegar Flavour Crisps
Doritos Extreme Chilli Heatwave
Walkers French Fries Ready Salted
Walkers French Fries Salt & Vinegar Flavour
Walkers Quavers Prawn Cocktail Flavour
Walkers Quavers Salt & Vinegar Flavour
Walkers Square Ready Salted
Walkers Wotsits Flamin' Hot

Can anyone supplement this list or point me to a larger one?

Regards,
TH.

Try

guide, (login require) although I would advise you buy the
book so you can take it with you when shopping. Good
luck.

This is actually where we got the above list from (the book not the
website), trouble is that despite being the latest edition it's already
out of date. For example Animal Free Shopper reports Sherbert Dip Dabs
as vegan and even the Cadbury's website says they aren't. Unfortunately
despite registering twice now I still cannot get into the Animal Free
Shopper's online pages...

Whilst it's a great resource, I don't believe for a second that there
are not more mainstream sweets that are actually vegan.

TH.

To get into the afs site, check the "i read the terms and promise
stuff" box.

Clearly there needs to be a place on the site to report updates and
errata. I would suggest this to them.

Pringles have two little boxes towards the bottom of the tube, one says
vegetarian and one says vegan. If they are suitable for those groups,
there will be a tick in each box.
