Vegan 101: Marshmallows & C’est La Vegan’s 1st give-away!
Posted Aug 29 2010 3:42pm
This edition of C’est La Video takes us to the Angeles National Forest for a vegan s’mores filled camping trip, which means it’s the perfect time to talk about vegan marshmallows! It might seem strange to think that something like a marshmallow wouldn’t be vegan, but they normally contain gelatin, which is far from being even vegetarian. Behold, this tasty quote from wikipedia -
“Gelatin is a protein produced by partial hydrolysis of collagen extracted from the boiled bones, connective tissues, organs and some intestines of animals such as domesticated cattle, pigs, and horses.”
Thankfully there are some really delicious gelatin-free marshmallow options out there from company’s like Suzanne’s Specialties , Chicago Soydairy and Sweet & Sara , which you’ll see me talk about in the video. If you don’t believe me when I tell you that they taste even better than their non-vegan counterparts (or if you already love them), I’m thrilled to tell you that now you’ll have a chance to try them yourself!
Thanks to the generosity of Chicago Soy Dairy and Sweet & Sara, four lucky readers (yes, FOUR!) are going to win some tasty treats! Here’s are the prize details — 2 winners will each win two bags of Dandies from Chicago Soydairy. 1 winner will win Sweet & Sara vanilla marshmallows and a peanut butter s’more, and another winner will get a Sweet & Sara sampler pack and a plain s’more. Yum!!!
All you have to do is leave a comment here by Wednesday September 8th and I’ll randomly select four winners to ship the products to. If you want to double your chances to will all four prizes, “like” C’est La Vegan on facebook and leave us a comment that you have. You can triple your chances by following C’est La Vegan on twitter as well. (If you already follow us on facebook or twitter, just mention that in your comment). And if you want to increase your chances to win Dandies, “Like” the Chicago Soy Dairy facebook page and mention in your comment that you did.
P.S. – I just realized I should have specified that these can’t, unfortunately, be shipped out of the country. So sorry if you’re international and have already left a comment!
