Listed in Bakery - Storefront
It has come to my attention that Vegan Treats uses animal products.
This is an excerpt from a message defending their use of animal products to a customer who questioned their use…
“I have been vegan for over 20 years, and started my bakery as a means to support my activism. I can assure you, I hold the purity of my desserts to my own very high, personal standards.
We do utilize Chex brand cereal in our bakery. Although their source of Vitamin D can sometimes be controversial, I have chosen to stand in line with various guidebooks, and community members, including PETA.org, and to consider this cereal to be vegan.
I have also chosen to utilize a brand of sprinkles that does contain Confectioner’s Glaze. Although this is a very controversial ingredient within the vegan community, I would prefer to be transparent with my customers, and allow them to make the choice for themselves. I would like to apologize for any confusion there may have been in regard to the permissibility of sharing brand names. I am always happy to share product information with customers, and want everyone who dines here to be comfortable in their choices.”

We are no longer listing them as a vegan business, although we are leaving the page up with the information removed as we think it’s important for others to know when animal derived ingredients are being depicted as vegan. And, although they claim to be dropping some of the animal derived ingredients, they have been less than honest about using them up until now, and there will always be a question as to the source of ingredients used from this point on.
