*Skittles are apparently now gelatin-free, but Mars (the Skittles manufacturers’) have been largely involved in harmful and deadly experiments on animals for years. (Mars has openly stated that they test their products on animals.) learn more: www.marscandykills.com

Besides the obvious milk & eggs—here are some ingredients you should watch out for:
Casein (made from milk), Carmine/Natural Red 4 (made from insects - yep), Gelatin (made by boiling animal bones/tendons/skin), Honey (from harvesting bees nests), Lard (pig fat), Pepsin (pigs’ stomachs), Rennet (baby calves’ stomachs), Stearic Acid (animal fat), Cetyl Palmitate (oil from dolphin/whale bodies), Urea (animal urine/fluids—used in some pretzels, ack!), and E 904, E 120, 901, 904, 542!
