Are Fruitella Sweets Vegan?

by Toni Olukiran

The soft chews were a favourite for many as children, but are they vegan? Here’s what you should know.

What are Fruitella?

Fruitella is a British sweet popular in the UK, and is typically sold in a stick or bag of the chews. They are similar to Starburst or Chewits, as each candy is individually wrapped and has real fruit juice to make the various fruit flavours in each pack. 

Are Fruitella vegan?

Unfortunately, the Fruitella that you many know and love is not vegan. This is because although they are dairy-free, they contain pork gelatin. However, if you do love Fruitella, there’s still good news! Due to demand, Fruitella have released two sweets that are vegan: sour snakes and koalas. However, if it’s the soft chews you’re after, Starbursts are vegan, so that will definitely fill the void.
