In all honesty, the 'dude' thing wouldn't have bothered me if Andrew_TA hadn't completely dismissed my post about Honey.

Sometimes it becomes too inconvenient/ expensive/ or simply unknowable to avoid all animal derived ingredients. But Honey is just as easy to avoid as Meat or Milk, and if you just don't give a fuck, you need to be reminded what being "Vegan" means.

I just don't really know if I buy that they are particular sentient beings.

OK, well that's a fair enough position.
Do I know with absolute certainty that bees are sentient? No, I don't.
But I know they're an animal, I know they have large nervous systems, capable of transmitting pain signals, and I know that it's completely unnecessary for us to use honey.
On top of this, the farming production of honey is damaging to the environment.

Yeah that's fair enough, and good point about the environmental concerns too

The term "dude" is an English slang word used to informally address a male person. The word may also be used in the same manner for a female


Originally "dude" meant a city person in the country, with strong connotations of ignorance of rural ways. It is believed the word has its origins in the Irish word "Dúd" (pronounced Dood, like mood), which means someone who looks or acts foolish or out of place.

You can't be a nazi about that kinda thing oi. It's up to the individual to decide if they want to eat honey. Just because you think that it is "not vegan" doesn't mean other have to.
I apologise about being dismissive.

edited the list slightly.

it's just a list of stuff that people have contributed through this thread (which i probably need to update). I assume most of the stuff is vegan, but obviously some people have slightly different ideas about veganism. Thanks for the links about bees.

Think of it as a starting point. It's always best to look into stuff for yourself, it's not hard to read the packet in the supermarket. Sorry but I can't be assed researching every single item on the list, especially since I dont even eat half of them.

Yeah it's OK. I know people can eat Honey if they want to, I just wish they wouldn't call themselves Vegans. Just like Vegetarians who Eat Fish, Fish is not a Vegetable! Grr.. It just really bothers me. But yeah, leaving that issue alone now...

Just don't say bad things about Kim Wilde, ok? Lawnmower Deth covered her after all....

also, I could argue that bees are good for the farming environment, which you rely on. But I won't. Cos I don't want to play Devil's advocate tonight. Much.

If you have facts and reason that are 'pro honey eating' then I'ld be interested in hearing/reading them (everything I've read lends me to believe otherwise however). I'm all for sharing the knowledge.

To the person on page two or three who said Skittles, they aren't vegan, they're coated with shellac or something similar I think, it's listed as a number on the ingredients.

I'm kind of a slack vegan and don't find out what the numbers are on stuff I eat. I really should but to be honest I can't be bothered. Anyway, here are some of my favourite vegan things:

1. Marmite (contains sugar which mayn't be vegan but I don't really care).
2. those Trident noodle bowls, chicken flavour
3. Lindt chocolate, 70% cocoa
4. Hubbard's Orchard Muesli - heaps of muesli has honey but this one doesn't, and it doesn't have yucky sultanas or raisins
5. Fry's meat, especially schnitzel
6. Lite Licks
7. Health Plus Vinegarette chips, soooooooo good
8. Oreos (yes, yes, but I hardly ever buy them)
9. BBQ flavour Rice Wheels are real good once you get down to the bottom of the packet and you get to eat the flavouring
10. Mother Earth Salt and Vinegar popcorn but I don't think it's made anymore

[quote="Lurch"][quote="PertHJ"]but so are oreos I think...


does anyone know any good chocolate milk brands, I discovered milo has milk powder in it. lame.[/quote]

Nesquik. The banana one is at least - but check the others.[/quote]

Make it the old fashioned way with some vegan sugar and a wee bit of cocoa-then you know it doesnt have all that added crap!!!!! can make it bittersweet too which is scummy.

Any one got any ideas about vegan fragrances? Not something I'd usually buy, the crystal deoderant stone is usually good enough for me, but I've got someone coming through duty free soon.

bay leaves under yer armpits? tho you'll end up smelling like soup... honestly i don't know of any mainstream vegan fragrances, but that's just cause it's real hard to actually find out what's in their mix, there is bound to be traces of all sorts of whack shit in them - the only ones i know of aren't the big brands you'd find in duty free.

Lush sell little tin jars of solid perfume. Smells sooo good and is, of course, vegan. I think they have perfume in liquid form, too.

Anywayyy, sorry if these have already been mentioned but New World sells vegan Biscotti biscuits and vegan outback animal biscuits. Pretty damn good. And not only are they vegan, they're also gluten free, wheat free, yeast free, soy free, GMO free, and nut free. The brand for both is 'Organ' and I found them in the biscuit section.

Dunno if this has been posted yet, but Greggs does a range of Vegan jelly :mrgreen:
Dan was usually the first one to suggest a round of Soggy Biscuit, but he always played to lose.
