Whether you’re a chocoholic, sour squirm addict, or have a big sweet tooth, most people have a bit of a soft spot when it comes to lollies. And we understand that when that craving takes hold, it can be hard to ignore. But, confectionary usually contains the animal by-product gelatine, meaning that vegans often miss out. With that in mind, we’ve rounded up some of the most deliciously satisfying vegan lollies so that you can treat yourself and indulge guilt-free.
