Vegan Candy is Dandy!

Would you believe that some candies contain animal ingredients? It’s true! Some candies are made from things like gelatin, which is mashed up cow skin, cartilage, and bones. And carmine, the red coloring used in some candies, is made from ground-up bugs. Can you believe that? Bugs! Blecch!
