    I was just reading about this last week, the red ones aren't vegan and apparently neither are the 'milky/buttery' flavored ones... Plus all of them have a beeswax coating?

    Taken from Jelly Belly UK site (not sure about Australia, but I'd presume it'd be the same).

    Do Jelly Belly jelly beans contain gelatine?
    No. Jelly Belly jelly beans do not contain gelatine.
    Are Jelly Belly jelly beans suitable for vegetarians?
    Yes they are, however some strict vegans may have issues with the beeswax and shellac used to give them their final buff and polish.
    Are Jelly Belly jelly beans gluten free?
    We do not use any wheat, rye, barley, or oats in the basic recipe for Jelly Belly jelly beans. The modified food starch used in the manufacture of our jelly beans is cornstarch.
    Are Jelly Belly jelly beans dairy free?
    Yes. We work very closely with all of our ingredient suppliers to ensure that all ingredients are free of dairy.

    If that's what works for you, go with it. There are that many different types of vegans, vegetarians, pescetarians, rawists etc etc. Just do what works for you

    I use mozzie repellent and have no issue squashing a roach or mozzie etc. I buy meat for my family and we use the same cutlery (washed of course), some people are against that too! I just do whatever suits me

    Actually breastfeeding is when I went from being Vege to Vegan DD couldn't tolerate dairy and so I had to be 100% dairy free for her to be able to tolerate my milk. If you find you're needing a boost I recommend a protein powder (pea powder is really good, or you can get various soy ones too).

    Maybe they're not, but these ones are http://www.jellybelly.com/shop/produ...roductID=98101

    We recently had a Harry Potter party and I bought these because what else do you buy for the Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans lol. They are gf and vegan, but the regular ones may not be.

    I am breastfeeding and have been for the last 4 months. I have just continued taking a multi-vitamin every day, but I didn't have any problems with iron, b12 etc while pregnant. I feel healthier than ever
