Why Are Your Jelly Beans No Longer Vegetarian?
Our gourmet jelly beans are not vegetarian. We use two ingredients that are sourced from insects: “shellac” and “bees wax”. These ingredients are used to give our beans their glossy shine and to protect them from going stale too quickly. However, we want to be a 100% cruelty-free brand by 2026 and are working hard to replace these ingredients by vegan alternatives, so that you can enjoy 100% vegan jelly beans without compensating on quality and shelf life.
