This sounds mad doesn’t it? Well you know perhaps not…
Recently Green and Blacks have changed their packaging to state that their vegan chocolate now contains milk products!
Cadbury’s used to produce more vegan products including Bournville! I will comment on this below but it is no longer vegan either!
Thorntons used to have many products for vegans. They also used to sell custom made products for customers who could/would not consume other ingredients too!
So what’s changing? Is it just better labelling? Is it just testing, finding traces of an ingredient and making the move to publicise this for the good of the customer?
It seems like there’s more to it!
I received some info about Bournville recently. Unless I’ve misunderstood it, it says that France don’t use veg fat! How likely is that? Anyway let’s accept this for a minute. The email continues to state that Bournville will be made there soon! Thus it will cease to be vegan soon.
Well that’s RUBBISH! It’s non vegan already! So what was the timeframe in moving the production of Bournville to France? I thought I’d have time to purchase lots of vegan bars before the non vegan ones replaced them! No chance! Asda, Tesco, Waitrose, newsagents. They all have the NON vegan version of Bournville already!
Cadbury’s are a big company right? So how can they be so lame? Why can’t they ensure Bournville remains vegan? Are we evolving or regressing? I cannot believe that Cadbury’s are being forced to make one of their products change from non dairy to dairy!
So is there a secret plan to remove all vegan chocs by adding milk or other ingredients?
