15 Accidentally Vegan Sweet Treats

It may not say vegan on the packet, but don’t let that fool you. Here are 15 accidentally vegan sweet treats you never knew you could eat.

1. Phizzy Pig Tails

M&S seem to have tons of sweets all glaring at you as you walk to the checkout, but unfortunately most aren’t vegan as they contain beeswax. But the wonderful Phizzy Pig Tails are and contain no artificial colours or flavouring.

2. Skittles

One of the UK’s favourite sweets are vegan. These little multicoloured beauties became vegan friendly when they removed the E120 (cochineal) ingredient, which comes from an insect – eww! While this new variety of Skittles are vegan, be careful of old packets or limited editions.

4. IKEA Doughnuts

IKEA can be your best friend or your greatest enemy. Back in the day it used to be flat packs and achy feet for vegans, but now at least there are some plant based treats on offer. The doughnuts are a new addition and go nicely following a bowl of vegan meatballs from their cafe.

7. Fererro Rocher Kavici Spheres

Available at Pound Stretcher, these chocolate balls are supposed to be an imitation of the very fancy non-vegan Fererro Rocher. We have to say that they have had some very mixed reviews since their release, but still worth a mention.

14. Co-op Jam & Custard Accidentally Vegan Doughnuts

No list of accidentally vegan products would be complete without an appearance from the king & queen of accidentally vegan cakes: the Co-op doughnuts. They’re cheap, delicious and it’s scary how many of these can be eaten in one sitting.

15. Crumpets

Don’t ask us how or why, but for some reason whoever created this universe decided to make crumpets largely vegan-friendly. Warburtons, Sainsbury’s and Tesco always seem to be a safe bet.
