Vegan M&M’s May Soon Be the New Ethical Junk Food

What I remember most about becoming vegan is the constant tidal wave of things I couldn’t have. It often seemed like every time I turned around, I was finding out about something else I couldn’t eat that had seemed perfectly fine before closer inspection. Of course, then there were the more obvious things that were still hard to let go of (looking at you, Cheez-Its!) If you’re vegan and missing your M&M’s – we’ve got something that might make your day.

Kickstarter has the (possible) launch of No No’s, the vegan M&M’s. Made by Premium Chocolatiers in NJ, the vegan M&M’s are created without the milk, peanuts, tree nuts, gluten, eggs, or chocolate center. Our favorite part? No No’s have a vegan marshmallow in the middle! You can see the rest of the ingredients on the Kickstarter website here.

While they aren’t exactly, uh, good for you, it would be fun to have a vegan alternative when the junk food craving hits. Can you imagine living in a world someday where you’re able to buy stuff like No No’s at the gas station and movie theatre? Bliss!

With roughly $5,000 left to earn before the project ends on Tuesday afternoon, we’re feeling semi-confident that the campaign will reach its goal (it’s already raised $39k). If you’d like to see this product exist, you can pledge $25 for four bags of No No’s through the Kickstarter page.

Check out the video for the product below. Then, in the comments below, let us know what you think about this possible product launch!

Wonder whether this idea ever made it to market? I'd be keen to try some vegan sweets. Just because someone's vegan, doesn't mean they have to eat super healthy food all day every day. A little treat won't do any harm.

I haven't decided what to think of this. It ought to be good, but is it?

I'm not vegan but I understand the principle is that they are against harming animals and so do not use animal products... So why would they put that junk in their bodies, possibly harming it - are vegans so evolved as to not be animals? There are far better vegan options for a sweet treat.

Christine S. is right

Yes the Merino is subject to flystike. So are other animals and people (under the wrong circumstances). And it's nasty. I only had ten sheep which were under almost daily supervision and one ewe got flystruck. I've dealt with all sorts of gross diseases and growths. Flystrike is the worst thing I've ever had to deal with. The smell stays with me twenty years later.

In a flock of hundreds flystrike isn't quite as obvious to part timers like me, but while a full time sheep farmer would spot it quickly enough, it's still done damage.

Unfortunately I'd bought sheep that hadn't been mulesd. Never again.

I currently agist a neighbour's Dorper sheep and have access to all the wool they shed. It might be good as house insulation. But not much else. It has the texture of wire wool and is just as hard to dye.

Merino wool can make fabric as fine as silk.
