Introducing our Rowntree’s® vegan-friendly sweets range, Rowntree's® Fruit Pastilles and Rowntree's® Jelly Tots®, featuring the same great sweets you know and love but now with vegan-friendly ingredients! Read on to find out more…
Why are Fruit Pastilles vegan-friendly?
At Rowntree’s® we care about your feedback and have had several requests over the years to make our popular sweets vegan or vegetarian. We want our brands to be enjoyed by as many people as possible and that’s why we have changed our core recipe to be vegan-friendly.
Our new vegan-friendly sweets are slightly softer, but still unbelievably fruity and irresistibly chewy. We’re confident it’s our best tasting recipe yet and we’ve worked tirelessly to create a vegan-friendly alternative with absolutely no compromise on taste.
Science behind the new recipe for our vegan-friendly sweets
In creating our vegan-friendly Rowntree’s® Fruit Pastilles, we removed the gelatine from the recipe and adjusted the level of the remaining ingredients.
Rowntree’s® sweets will never contain any artificial colours, flavours or preservatives and this extends to our vegan-friendly range too, so you can enjoy with confidence!
Are Jelly Tots also
The simple answer is yes. Jelly Tots have always been suitable for vegan diets as they don’t contain gelatine, but we have updated the packaging so they have a clear vegan message on pack, just like Fruit Pastilles.
