Refreshers were the ultimate party bag sweet, and the range of flavours meant you were never disappointed. We break down whether or not they’re vegan.

What are Refreshers?

Refreshers are a sweet made by Swizzel, and are popular in the UK; found in multipack sweet bags at parties, school discos, and at local newsagents (next to Freddo’s they were the cheapest treat you could get!). 

Are Refreshers Vegan?

Good news — they are indeed vegan! Swizzel have updated the recipe in recent years, making Refreshers sweets (in all its different forms and flavurs) are now vegan friendly. These include:

  • Refreshers Chew bar lemon flavour
  • Refreshers Chew bar apple flavour
  • Refreshers Chew bar strawberry flavour
  • Refreshers Chews Lemon flavour
  • Refreshers Chews Strawberry flavour
  • Refreshers Choos 

So the next time you’re feeling nostalgic and you’re after something sweet, you’ve got lots of options.
