Hidden Evils & Everyday Treasures

Oreos are vegan...who knew?

So, I’m still very much a vegan-in-training.  I’m still learning what products have animal products hiding in them and what products don’t.  For instance, I just realized this week that my bread loaf contains milk [and apparently, most breads do].  Then there were the veggie burgers that I enjoyed last week only to find that they contained both eggs and milk.

Being vegan lends itself to much label-reading.

Tonight, I decided to look up the other side of the coin: the vegan products that even omnivores eat without any effort.  “Accidentally vegan,” as they’re often described, these products are on many a grocery list.

Here are some of my favorite examples of accidentally vegan products from PETA.org:

  • Cap’n Crunch Peanut Butter Crunch
  • Fruit Loops
  • Frosted Flakes
  • Kellogg’s Special K Red Berries
  • Cry Babies
  • Fruit By the Foot
  • Ghirardelli Twilight Delight Intense Dark
  • Keebler Animal Crackers
  • Nabisco Oreo Cookies
  • Sour Patch Kids
  • Hershey’s Syrup
  • Ragu Pizza Sauce
  • Campbell’s Franco-American Mushroom Gravy
  • Progresso Soups (Lentil, Hearty Tomato, and Tomato Basil)
