While this may seem daunting, you’ll be glad to know that many sweets are actually vegetarian. If you want to learn more about this, read on for five notable sweets that you can eat during National Vegetarian Week.

Barratt Hard Liquorice Sticks

Baratt (previously known as Bassetti) liquorice sticks are a traditional British sweet shop classic, known for their extreme liquorice flavour and their unusual shape and appearance. These black liquorice sticks come in a box with 75 hard sweets and a dark green and white display that features a traditional logo in the corner. Each stick is unique, with a flared end and embossed logo panel that lets you know you’re enjoying tradition as you bite into it. While these liquorice sticks contain no artificial colours or flavours, their intense taste is perfect for anyone who enjoys the flavour of liquorice candy.

Barratt Anglo Bubbly

Anglo Bubbly is a long-established bubblegum brand from the UK. It’s been repackaged and revamped to appeal to a whole new generation, but it still tastes like you remember – that ultimate bubblegum flavour. This bubblegum takes you back to your childhood. It’s still the number-one bubblegum, with natural colours and flavours that set it apart. It’s a chunky disc of pink bubblegum, and it produces some of the biggest bubbles you’ll ever see.

Cadbury Chocolate

Cadbury, the almost 200-year-old UK-based brand that manufactures the popular, well-loved ‘Dairy Milk’ chocolates we all remember from childhood, is working on a vegan version of the same chocolate bar. The company issued a statement that it does not use beef in its products, and it is 100% vegetarian. Cadbury’s clarification came after netizens called for a boycott on social media platforms.

BUBS Cool Cola Skulls

The Cool Cola Skulls by BUBS will make the perfect addition to any pick ‘n’ mix sweet collection. The skulls are made from the world’s most famous soft drink, which has been made into a chewable gummy candy. The gum is suitable for vegans and can be enjoyed by all. 

Kingsway Veggie Cherry Bon Bons

Cherry bonbons are an all-time favourite pick & mix treat, available in a wide range of colours and flavours, and they may also be repackaged into smaller bags, boxes, or jars. The Kingsway cherry bonbons are bursting with cherry flavour. Packed in a 3kg bag, but they can also be sold in smaller quantities.
