Who says they're not? What are the ingredients?

I thought they were...the original flavour, anyway?

Ingredients: Potato powder, sunflower oil, potato starch, salt, sugar, yeast extract, emulsifier:soya lecithin, spice.

Pom bears UK website explicitly says not suitable for vegans, but doesn't say why.

Could they just not have updated their table since reformulating?https://lucysfriendlyfoods.wordpress.com/2012/09/22/pom-bear-original-crisps-now-milk-free/ Best to write and ask, though.
