Last week we bought you the news that an epic vegan festival is hitting the Mount later this month—now we have more exciting vegan news to share with you.
Much-loved Aussie lolly brand, The Natural Confectionery Co. have just launched their very first vegan-friendly lollies in New Zealand, and we think we're in love. These fruit-flavoured jellies are made from a completely gelatine-free recipe and were such a huge hit upon their release across the ditch, packs of them actually became pretty hard to come by. And with a growing number of Kiwi peeps choosing to include plant-based goodies as part of their diet, we won't be surprised if they prove just as popular here.
These lush little jubes are practically perfect in every way, combining flavours like crisp apple, luscious peach, tropical pineapple and ripe raspberry in a lolly that's juicy, fruity and also a lot kinder on the teeth than so many other lollies on the market. Plus, as is the Natural Confectionery way, these sweets are also free of artificial colours and flavours, making them the perfect guilt-free treat.
So go on, you legit have no reason not to go buy these right now.
