    Default those little fried chip things that come with chinese food

    Ok, you know when you order Chinese food and you get a bag of those fried wafery things? I always thought they were vegan, but I saw a bag in a supermarket one time and they contained egg; I don't remember the brand that I saw though. Does anyone know the deal on this?
    I eat nutritional yeast by the spoonful.

    You don't mean the prawn crackers do you? I don't think they're even vegetarian. Maybe we're talking about different things though.

    Ohhhh.....you don't get those with Chinese food up here. They look like fried wonton wrappers though. From what I know some are vegan and some aren't.

    Hopefully someone else can help you better with this one. Sorry!!

    Speaking of Chinese food ... I ended up at a Chinese buffet this weekend and I saw those vegetarian spring rolls ... I didn't eat them, JUST IN CASE, but does anyone know if they are truly vegan? They certainly looked different from the pork rolls ... the dough was thinner, looked more baked than fried ... wasn't sure though ...

    All the crispy noodles I've asked about have been egg noodles, sorry. As far as spring rolls go I think you're all right as long as they're veggie. They're fried, but usually the wrapper is vegan. Egg rolls are definitely not.

    those crispy things are so delish! but unfortunately, I dont think they are vegan. I have a very strong suspicion that there is egg involved. i steer clear....
