    D'oh - Sorry Rocky, I should have noticed the Italic/nonItalic thing.

    I just get easily confused with all these screen names and real names!

    why shouldn't we thank tracy? she supplied the info

    supercook a few months ago were selling chocolate cake covering (ie chocolate with a cocoa butter content so low they can't legally call it chocolate, but tasted ok and was dirt cheap) that contained no non vegan ingredients in the ingredients list. I then saw in Sainsburys by the door a poorly photocopied notice from supercook saying that the product is not suitable for milk allergy sufferers as it's possible they added milk to it. They didn't however recall the effected batches, one of which I bought from. They've now changed the label on new ones to say milk in the ingredients list.

    That is indeed true, and whilst I'm not withdrawing my thanks to Tracy (Thanks Tracy!) , I still do apologise for calling Rocky Raccoon the wrong name

    Supercook do actual dark chocolate too don't they? Is that vegan?

    They sell plain, which has fluctuated between containing only vegan ingrediants and butterfat several times in the last few years.

    I wanted to know if Regalice was vegan (it said vegetarian and kosher but I was still suspicious!) and it is Hooray D

    Dear Cherry,

    Thank you for your e-mail regarding the above, and we would confirm that our Ready to Roll Icings are dairy/egg free and therefore suitable for Vegans, as are our Blue and Yellow Colourings.

    We hope the above is of assistance to you.

    Kind regards.

    lol

    Yeh, they write it as RegalIce Doesn't help much.

    I emailed them separately about red colouring, and that's vegan too.

    I've just emailed Supercook about their buttercream-style icing - from the ingredients it looks as if it should be, but I've asked specifically about the "flavourings", as that's the only possibly dodgy thing I could see.

    I had a useful conversation with someone from there a while back about the chocolate chips, which I was told were vegan as far as the ingredients went, but were manufactured on the same line as dairy so could contain traces.

    Found this thread when googling "vegan hundreds and thousands". I know this one is a few years old, so I apologise if this has been covered elsewhere, but some of the items listed as vegan are no longer so (including the hundreds and thousands!). Supercook is now Dr. Oetker. I emailed them and asked for a list of their products that are suitable for vegans. I'm an avid cake baker and I'm just getting into decorating/sugarcraft, so it's been frustrating trying to find suitable flavours/colours/decorations etc. They seem to constantly change! Below is the list that is APPARENTLY suitable for vegans...Notice that it contains cochineal....I don't know if this is a mistake or whether they have a non-beetle version with the same name?! I'm sure I've seen some of these products containing shellac as well....When I emailed them I said "vegan=no animal products including beeswax, cochineal, gelatine, milk, egg, gelatine etc"...I hoped that would make it clear enough to avoid any confusion (I have found in the past when you say no animal products some companies seem to think bee products are suitable!-Bees aren't vegetables!). Urgh...Anyway..I have emailed them back for clarification on this list..Response will probably take a few days.

    I use their dark chocolate drops, all the ingredients are vegan so I'm surprised they aren't on the list. Do you think it's possible they contain something not on the ingredients list?

    They now contain milk, I saw a pack in Tesco the other day and they have added milk now (huge sigh of disappointment)

    They've had milk in them for at least a year, I know because I used to buy them all the time an when I was making chocolate chip something for my birthday last year and I discovered that they'd added milk. I was really dissapointed, so much so that I wrote to them, explaining that I was a vegan who used their products frequently and I was really dissapointed with their decision. They apologised to me but obviously weren't too sorry as they haven't changed it nearly a year later!

    On the bright side the Dr Oetker/Supercook jelly diamonds are vegan
    Houmous atá ann!
