Are All Chewits Products Vegan?

We are super proud to say that our Chewits Bites, Laces, Twists and Wands are suitable for vegans and vegetarians alike. The only exception in our range of products is the Chewits Chews (which contains egg white and are therefore not suitable for vegans).

What Makes Chewits Strawberry Laces SO Tasty?

When it comes to our flavours, we follow in Chewie’s pawsteps by being big and bold! Over the years, we have perfected our juicy flavours thanks to our inclusion of real fruit juices.

Our Strawberry Laces are now a firm favourite with our fans – including Chewits-lovers that enjoy a vegan or vegetarian diet! Better yet, they don’t contain any artificial colours or hydrogenated fats.

The ingredients of our Chewits Strawberry Laces include: Glucose syrup, sugar, wheat flour, vegetable fats (palm, coconut), apple juice concentrate, acidity regulator (citric acid), humectant (sorbitol), flavouring, modified maize starch, emulsifier (mono- and diglycerides of fatty acids), concentrate from (black carrot, blackcurrant).

As well as our Strawberry Laces, we also have Chewits Xtreme Sour Apple Laces, which are sour enough to make even the BIGGEST dinosaur squirm. Plus, there’s our Chewits Rainbow Wands and the brand new Chewits Fruity Twists.

Why Choose Vegan Sweets?

Vegan sweets, including Chewits Laces, Bites, Twists and Wands are created without the use of animal products or animal-derived products. So, they never contain dairy, meat, eggs, honey, poultry or any other ingredients that have been created using animal products.

There are many reasons why someone may choose a vegan diet. The majority of people choose a vegan diet to improve their health and/or make an effort to reduce their impact on the environment and reduce their carbon footprint.

Although only a small percentage of the population is vegan, there is no doubt that veganism is growing in popularity. In 2022, the Veganism campaign hit a record high number of sign-ups as more people choose to try a vegan diet for one month.

There are health benefits to incorporating more vegan foods into your diet. For example, vegan foods are often richer in key nutrients, such as fibre, antioxidants and plant compounds.

Vegan diets also often have a lower calorie intake than non-vegan diets, making them a good choice for those who are trying to maintain a healthy weight.

A vegan diet can also lower blood sugar levels and help protect again certain types of cancer, including colon and breast cancer.

But switching to a vegan diet isn’t easy! Especially if you currently have a varied diet that includes meat, poultry and dairy.

What About Vegetarian?

Another option is to try a vegetarian diet. Our very own Chewie is a vegetarian and he thinks it’s ROARSOME!

Vegetarians avoid eating meat, fish or poultry. Although they do include dairy and other animal-derived products, such as honey, in their diet. They may also choose not to use products that contain animal products – such as leather.

A vegetarian diet also has plenty of health benefits whilst having a positive impact on the environment. And most people find that switching to a vegetarian diet is much easier than jumping straight into veganism.

The NHS website offers plenty of advice on how to reap the health benefits of a vegetarian diet.

And don’t forget (the most important fact) – ALL Chewits and Chewits Xtreme sweets are suitable for vegetarians, as they do not contain gelatine!
