List of Vegan Candies

Need to get your sugar fix and sooth your sweet tooth? Many people think they are left in the dark by the candy companies when it comes to being Vegan. Thank goodness that is not the case because life is so much more fun when there's candy in it!

Here is a list of vegan candies that have been approved by PETA.**

Airheads taffy
Blow Pops
Brach's Cinnamon Hard Candy
Brach's Root Beer Barrels
Brach's Star Brites
Chocolove Dark Chocolate bar
Chocolove Cherries and Almonds Dark Chocolate Bar
Chocolove Crystallized Ginger Dark Chocolate Bar
Chocolove Orange Peel Dark Chocolate Bar
Chocolove Raspberry Dark Chocolate bar
Cry Babies
Fruit By the Foot
Hubba Bubba bubblegum
Jolly Ranchers (lollipops and hard candy)
Laffy Taffy
Mary Janes (regular and peanut butter kisses)
Panda Licorice
Smarties (U.S. Brand)
Sour Patch Kids
Super Bubble
Swedish Fish
Sweet Tarts

**Items listed may contain trace amounts of animal-derived ingredients. While PETA supports a strict adherence to vegan practices, they put the task of vigorously reducing animal suffering ahead of personal purity. Boycotting products that are 99.9 percent vegan sends manufacturers the message that there is no market for that particular food, which ends up hurting more animals.

Looking for ideas for radishes and cilantro (don't have to be together)

"Radish and Jicama Rice"... Grate your radishes and jicama to make a somewhat fluffy rice-like mix. Chop your cilantro, some garlic, maybe some dill and lemon to season your rice with. Drizzle some balsamic vinegar...salt and pepper.... pretty tastey eats!

Quick cooking corn on the cob

The tastiest way to eat corn, in my opinion, is RAW. What's quicker than raw foods? No mess, no fuss; just shuck and eat :-) Plus, raw corn tends to digest easier.

Birthday party idea around food?

I'm glad you liked the idea! :-) My friends and I used to make "perfect meals" back in highschool, it was about as much fun as food can be. Hope you have a great party!

Birthday party idea around food?

You could have your hubbie choose favorite fast food entree, sides, drinks, desserts, etc.:. After taking your husband's "perfect meal" order, go to each restaurant and pick up each item. You can buy for the whole party and then everyone gets to experience your husbands "PERFECT MEAL".
