Vegan Candy Guide

Amazon

Whether it's Halloween, Valentine's Day, or a birthday party, some celebrations seem to call for a bit of candy. But what do you do if a vegan is going to be there? Check out our list of 20 widely available and totally vegan candies for your next event. 

Although it's not the healthiest option, candy can be enjoyed occasionally as a sweet treat in moderation. There are a few tricky ingredients to look out for when buying vegan candy:

  • Dairy - Found mostly in chocolate products, this can also be named milkfat, whey, or caesin. 
  • Gelatin - A common ingredient in gummy candies, gelatin is made from animal tendons, ligaments, and bones.
  • Shellac - Also known as "confectioner's glaze," this glossy product is created using the excretions of certain insects.
  • Carmine - Usually found in bright red products, carmine is a pigment made by crushing the shell of a female cochineal insect.
  • Egg
