Tons of Vegan Candy To
Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth

Looking for some vegan candy?

Quite a few of your favorite childhood candy treats are made with animal ingredients.

The most common ingredients are gelatin (made from animal bones and tendons), milk fat, eggs, carmine (or Natural Red 4, made from beetles), rennet (enzyme from cow stomachs), pepsin (another stomach enzyme), lard (pig fat), E 904, E 120, 901, 904, 542 (all are from animals), or even just sugar that is processed with charred bone fragments.


vegan Halloween candy


The good news is that there are plenty of candies that pass the test and don't have any animal ingredients in them, so whether you need an everyday fix or just want a vegan Halloween or Easter, rejoice!

I'm not going to say these are all healthy candies, as many are still made with high fructose corn syrup, but they are officially vegan. Sometimes you can even find natural candy made without the harmful dyes and flavorings.

One of my favorite places to find vegan candy is online at Vegan Essentials, and they also have tons of other vegan options.

I also love the Natural Candy Store online, where everything they sell is made without high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors, artificial dyes, or hydrogenated oils. There's a whole section under special diets for vegan candy, and I feel like it's the best selection on the internet.
