Are Jolly Ranchers Vegan?

I have a question about the jolly rancher candy. I was wondering if they have any soy or dairy products in them. I don’t think so but I wanted to make sure.

    If you do some research it is found that jolly ranchers have a few controversial ingredients in the vegan community including sugar, artificial flavors and coloring. This is because sugar sometimes is given its color by ground up bone but usually not included in the sugar product itself. Most artificial flavors used in candy are derived from plants and the coloring is ok as most are not tested on animals in present time. Although, if you visit Hersheys website they clearly state that Jolly Ranchers are not vegan.

    According to Jolly Rancher’s website, they distinctly note that the candy is not certified Vegan. While the candy is not sourced directly from animal ingredients, they do not guarantee vegan-certified standards.

    It can be tricky to navigate the world of candy as a vegan, but don’t worry – Jolly Ranchers can still be enjoyed in some cases. The original Jolly Rancher hard candies are vegan-friendly, as they do not contain any animal-derived ingredients. However, some of the newer flavors and varieties may use gelatin or other animal products, so be sure to check the ingredients list before indulging.
