Vegetarian Sweet Hampers & Boxes

If you have a veggie friend, family member, or you’re one yourself, you may be surprised to learn that not all sweets are suitable for veggies. In fact, many of our favourite fruity gummies, fizzy sours, fizzy cola bottles and pick ‘n’ mix favourites are not veggie friendly. Many contain gelatine to create a jelly like texture, whilst others contain food colouring which is made using ground up beetles!

As a result, it's important to do your homework when looking for vegetarian candy varieties. If you’re searching for vegetarian sweets or candy gifting ideas, the Sweet Hamper Company has you covered, with every colour and taste under the rainbow available in our range.

From vegetarian sweet hampers and boxes, through to vegetarian candy bouquets and cones, the Sweet Hamper Company’s range of veggie friendly candy gifts is bound to put a smile on anyone’s face. Available in a variety of different sizes, you can select the perfect vegetarian friendly sweetie gift for all manner of occasions and celebrations.

Our vegetarian candy boxes, sweetie hampers, candy bouquets and other vegetarian sweet products are all created by hand. The treats, chocolate and confectionery found within our products are of the highest standard and quality, influencing top notch ingredients like glucose syrup. 

You can personalise any of our vegetarian candy products when you pop it in your bag. You won’t find a vegetable in sight, although there may be some modified potato starch in some of the ingredient lists! 


What makes certain sweets suitable for vegetarians or vegans?

You may automatically assume that all candy and chocolates are suitable for veggies. After all, how can something which tastes so sweet and be full of sugar have animal products in it? From fruit flavours to fizzy sherbet, they certainly don’t appear to have anything meaty within the ingredients. However, you’d be wrong. Many candy varieties including fizzy cola bottles, bubblegum bottles, fruit jellies and even flying saucers could contain some animal derivatives, mainly in the form of gelatine which is used as a gelling agent in many recipes. 

These days, with many more people turning to meat free, plant based and vegan diets, candy manufacturers are looking for alternative options in their ingredient list.

To create the classic gummy texture of many sweets, gelatine is used in a gummy mix, strawberry lace or jelly baby. Gelatine is mixed with other ingredients such as glucose syrup, citric acid, maize starch and potato starch.

Gelatine is the byproduct of the meat industry, commonly taken from animal bones. There are a wide range of ingredients which can replace traditional gelatine, including pectin, agar agar and carrageen. Again, when mixed with other ingredients such as flavourings, potato starch, glucose syrup, maize starch, lactic acid and citric acid, you can recreate the sweets we love.

By swapping gelatine for some of these ingredients you can make your favourite sweets suitable for vegetarians and vegans! Many different sellers actually offer veggie and plant-based sweets - you don’t have to just offer your veggie friends a vegetable on a plate for dessert!
