* A Note about Vegan Crisp Cereal
Regarding the crisp cereal called for in the treats below. It appears Rice Krispies are still not quite vegan. It’s about some of the additives.
So we recommend Erewhon cereals which are rated nice and crispy. And definitely vegan. Learn about Erewhon cereals here including store locator » You can also order Erewhon cereals from Amazon »
From the Dandies website
Dandies Marshmallows are made with all natural ingredients, contain no high fructose corn syrup or gelatin (they’re 100% vegan!), and are the first ever marshmallow to be Non-GMO Project Verified. Oh, and our marshmallows are kosher too!
Traditional marshmallows are loaded with unnatural ingredients and made with gelatin (a yucky animal-based ingredient, look it up). We recognized that these family-favorite treats desperately needed an ingredient-list makeover.
Dandies Marshmallows are indistinguishable from conventional marshmallows. Our light and fluffy marshies are perfect for roasting over a campfire, putting in hot chocolate (or coffee—try it!), classic crispy treats, s’mores, or just straight snackin’!
Just in case you were wondering!
Hope you enjoy these treats. There’s more to come, so stay tuned.
