I don't know if anyone here has heard of the Halal Haribos which are also vegetarian... There are 8 varieties of them, about 4 of which are Vegan (sugar coated). The rest however are coated with... BEESWAX. I emailed the suppliers to ask for stockists, and I also decided to ask (but was not expecting a positive response) if they would be making the rest of the range Vegan. I AM SO EXCITED! :

You can purchase all the sweets from the following:



Online from either our website below or eBay.
Asda still offers all our products but I do understand that you cannot find them via Asda website.
Sainsbury, they will be shortly relisting them.
We will be making them vegan but this will not be in circulation for another 2 months.

I can't see which ones are sugar coated and which ones aren't - do you know which bags are okay?

I did discover these in Asda when I was veggie and bought loads of bags for my veggie boyfriend as he loves jelly sweets. Haven't looked at them since I've been vegan so I don't know which ones are without beeswax. That's great they'll all be vegan soon though!

Vegan ones are the cola breeze, sour tongues, sour delicious and mega sours. I am ashamed to confess my username comes from a total addiction to all sorts of sweeties! :o

Asda also do own-brand fruit jelly sweets and American hard gums that are vegetarian and don't have any non-vegan ingredients listed.

I must say the sour delicious ones are pure heaven... along with the cherry flavoured ones in the mega sour mix... omg... i'm going to put on all that weight i lost at this rate... lol :o
I went to ASDA today and the only Vegan ones they had were cola breeze and sour tongues... why oh why don't they stock them all!

Veganstore do them aswell. I got some a few weeks back, they really aren't very sour at all and mega-sour is a major over statement. Sour tongues are the best imho :).

I'm disappointed. I thought they might stock them at some of the supermarkets on Brick Lane. I went to a couple of them today and they didn't have any. They did have a lot of halal sweets similar to Haribo but all of those contained beef gelatin. :mad: I don't have an Asda near me and the Sainsbury's I usually go to is pretty small so I doubt they'd stock them.

mariana > you know, I thought the same. I've even tried Islamic shops with no luck. Anyway I am waiting for ASDA's reply on which branches stock the entire range - that way I can stock up.

That's too bad. It sounds like they're a new product (:confused:), so maybe they just haven't gotten around to stocking them yet and will in the future. I guess I'll try Sainsbury's sometime.

My friend had them when I saw her at the Brighton Vegan Fayre and I think she had bought them at Asda. She lives in Woolwich so I think the Asda she uses is in Greenwich somewhere.

No actually they are at least 2-3 years old. I've been Vegan for around 16 months now, and I used to eat them previous to that as a veg... I just think stockists are far and few between...unfortunately for us..

edit: Yep, they came onto the market in 2006

Just to chip in, Sainsbury's doa range of 'sweets' that are 3 bags for 1 and many of them are clearly labelled 'vegan' - including sour carpets and fizzy cola/strawberry lances! Mmm!

sour carpets don't sound very appetising! :dizzy:

actually my dog might like them, she's always licking our carpet.
