Just found these in Tesco, apologies if posted before. Haven't seen them advertised, but unlike other types of Haribo, these are suitable for vegetarians. My wife, who has been vegetarian for 15+ years, is delighted!

Voted hot just because it's vegetarian! I've been veggie for 11 years now and really missed Haribo. Never knew there was veggie one. I did a quick search and there seem to be other kinds as well. Gonna pop into my nearest Tesco tomorrow. Thanks OP!

No worries, glad to spread the word!

This will be the perfect sweet for me to eat after my steak dinner.

Hotted - my other half is a veggie, I never even dreamed it was so complicated before I got with her, can't even buy her things like bottles of wine or lotions without checking if they are veggie - knightmare!!!

Suitable for Vegetarians?

Howzat? Virtually all edible jelly comes from boiled down beef bones so I'm not sure how that can be entirely suitable for people who "Don't eat meat".

I love Haribo. ASDA do the big Family Fantasy Mix 700g for £1.97 in my local.

That's the point! Haribo usually aren't suitable for vegetarians, but these are..

Forgive me ignorance, but isnt this suitable for vegans, not vegetarians?

I always thought it was only vegans who were bothered about gelatine etc.
#8
"Proper" Vegetarians don't eat meat or fish which includes meat and fish products such as gelatine, cochineal, animal fats but they do eat eggs and milk unlike vegans who don't.
#9
I'm Carniverous are these ok for me?
#10
What are they made from.. I don't like the idea of eating food that is not made from naturally boiled up animal bones..yum yum
#11
Hi,

Does anyone know if these are suitable for vegans?

Thanks,

Julie

I know exactly how you feel! :thumbsup:
#13
They use vegetable extract instead of gelatine, to make the jelly. The same goes for vegetarian jelly.

Hot!
#14
At last vegetarian version of Haribos.... :)

My girlfriend is Vegan, but it's actually quite easy once you get used to it, just got phone up everywhere before you go and check EVERYTHING on the labels lol

I'll need to check these out, I've been resorting to buying haribos from the veganstore, but cost a fortune for tiny bags and take ages to get here. So gotta vote hot for this :thumbsup:
#16
Vegetarian Haribos - Woohoo!!!

This warrants a trip to tesco for sure :)

heat + rep for defo :D
#17
Hi,

I've just checked in Tesco and these are not suitable for vegans as they contain beeswax

Excelent find - shame they can't use the same gelling ingredient in all of their sweets though! Thanks!

Am I missing something lol, having been vegetarian for 21 years, I am wondering why any real vegetarians would want 'Haribo's'? It seems a little odd to adopt a vegetarian diet and then buy sweets from such a mass company with no fairtrade or organic/sustainability ethics or interests. Surely vegetarians and vegans want a little bit more than Haribo's...

So people mean vegan, then, not vegetarian.

2-3 times the price? Sounds like organic eggs to me. Everything's organic and everything has some animal as part of it -or it wouldn't be part of planet earth.

I suppose if you have a problem with your weight (either because you're fat or think you are) then going vegan/vegetarian is a good excuse as I've never seen a fat vegan.

I'd be more worried about how they get faux-collagen from vegetables TBH. Boiled beef and ham bones have served us well for centuries and I like the fact we are using a waste product in such a wonderful end product. Very environmentally friendly and totally organic (although as -I said- everything is totally organic obviously).

Line up those dead cows, we need their jelly now! :-D

Not odd at all. I have been vegetarian for 15 years. But guess what? I am not left wing. I am not concerned about the environment every morning I wake up. Whilst fair trade is a noble idea, big global corporations are not evil either. I am certainly not going to self-flagellate myself to satiate a middle class conscience.

I don't eat animals, as I can not reconcile the pain involved (the killing of sentient beings with a central nervous system) with me filling my belly. Not when I can live a rich, healthy and full life without it.

Each to their own I suppose.

I agree with your postulation that everything is 'organic', in the way that everything is 'nature' including ourselves and for us to think otherwise is conceited and a remnant of religious ideology.

However we have the empirical evidence of pain. If you want a hamburger, you got to kill the cow.

I decided there was no need. I do not judge you. Go your own way. Judge yourself.

Not all fairtrade though is it...:-D

:-D , what a load of self indulgent tosh.... To assume that those who are concerned with fairtrade are satiating a middle class conscience is absolute rubbish. And a vegetarian who is vegetarian because they 'can not reconcile the pain involved (the killing of sentient beings with a central nervous system) with me filling my belly" would surely be concerned about whether children had made their sweets or families had been paid a pitence and starved so they could fill their bellies.
I am not anything in particular, I just can't stand these ridiculous statements. I do my bit and do my best, but it can never be wrong however poor/rich you are to want people to be paid a fair wage and food to not be full of chemicals. That is not 'middle class' more common sense.

To assume that all vegetarians must also follow a stringent line of philosophical precepts is self indulgent. That is what you are missing.

I believe someone can live a decent life without only consuming goods that have a sticker on them. Perhaps your assertion that you can not reconcile being a vegetarian with buying from large companies is a ridiculous statement?

Just because a product has not got 'fair trade' on it, it does not necessarily follow that the company that makes the product is unethical.

And I like my food full of chemicals thank you very much. This puritanical regression to a supposed bucolic existence is very sad.
#25
Some of the smaller packs are veggie but it's good to see a bigger one too! Heat and rep added :thumbsup:

cheapo

Yes, and everything has chemicals in it too or again it wouldn't be here. These words have been abused by business and environMENTALists for decades and now they are corrupt in virtually all everyday use of English.

Everything is natural, organic and full of chemicals. Of course it is.

I'm cool with people who don't eat animals but I do wonder why they limit their rule to flesh and none of the other products we all use daily. Be it soap, 'paper' bags, glass wool, shampoo, carpet tiles or whatever.

Personally, I eat meat only once a year at Christmas because someone else is cooking. Meat smells usually make me feel sick but that doesn't stop me enjoying all the lovely bi-products.

I just think you need your head testing to pay 300% more for the same natural organic healthy (yes sugar is healthy) product. Or put it this way for the bargain hunters here, you are getting 300% less beautiful Haribo! That's the way I see it.

A chacun à son gôut.

Indeed.

do these taste okay, or are they a bit 'dodgy' ?.. :whistling:

I can't notice a difference, unlike that vegetarian jelly that the other half tried to stitch me up with ! /vommit
#29
Woo Hoo!

I have noticed though in my pursuit of sweets suitable for vegetarians, that those originating from the states appear to be more often than not, suitable.

My favourite being Jelly Beans and Marshmallows that only Budgens stock, great for toasting!

These are also £1 at Morrisons
Bought a pack yesterday and my own personal taste I didn't like them in fact I ate 3 and threw the rest away - waste I know
