The Vegan Candy Hierarchy of Deliciousness

Filed under: Food Humor & Comedy Stupid

Oh, do I love me some candy. This graph was ripped off from inspired by this. (Granted, my derivation is both glaringly rudimentary and a bit contrived – but, y’know I’m okay with that.) Please share your candy-related thoughts in the comments section below.


Update:I called Ferrara Pan and have confirmed that Lemonheads are in fact not vegan.
I have replaced them in the hierarchy with something equally as delicious and confirmed as vegan from various sources. Thanks to Ezekiel Grave for the tip!

    I was pretty sure that “Lemon Heads” and similar candies are NOT vegan due to the fact that they contain “Confectioner’s Glaze”, which is another word for “Shellac”.

    Hmm, when I’ve contacted many of these companies in the past they wouldn’t tell me if they used non-bone char sugar. Are these items pseudo vegan (for those not concerned with sugar) or are any of these all-vegan and definitely don’t have bone-char sugar?

    The majority of candy on here has been confirmed by various sources as being suitable for vegans. Your questions with regard to bone-char is a little more nuanced and probably open to debate.

    I thought skittles were vegan now that they no-longer contain gelatin?
