Good or Gooey?

When I converted into a 99% vegetarian many, many years ago most people around me expected I’d be challenged by all those fantastic, delicious meet dishes. As a matter of fact, I am more tempted by the trashiest of all candies: wine gum!1 Unfortunately, most of them are based on gelatin as gelling agent2.

Goody good stuff makes gooey vegan wine gums Goody good stuff makes vegan wine gums – but are they really good?

Footnotes
  1. All those really trashy wine gums: colorful, sticky, artificially flavored, and best if covered with extremely sour stuff. []
  2. And gelatin, as you will probably know, is extracted from animal bones. Not vegen. Not vegetarian. In many cases not halal… []
