Accidentally Vegan Lollies In Australia

Lollies, sweets, candy, whatever you call the tasty sugar treats there are plenty around. But, which ones are vegan? It’s common knowledge that a lot of lollies, especially the softer ones, have gelatine in them.

What is accidentally vegan? Products that are not labeled vegan or marketed specifically to vegans. Thankfully there are a lot of accidentally vegan sweets in the supermarkets and department stores. This list does not include all of the other lollies at cruelty-free supermarkets and websites.  So, there are plenty of options if you are looking for something sweet.

Non-vegan ingredients to look out for
  • Gelatine – made from collagen which is in the skin, bones and connective tissues of cows and pigs.
  • Cochineal and carmine (made from crushed insects).
  • Palm oil (exploitation of animals and bad for the environment)
  • Beeswax (exploitation of animals)

This list is not a health food list by any means but read on if you want a list of accidentally vegan lollies available from A-Z.

PS. This might be handy to send to grandparents who like to treat your little ones.
