Mylk Bar Sweets is an online lolly shop for vegan candy and hello sugar high!
Do you remember the sheer unbridled joy you felt as a kid when you were let loose in the lolly shop with your pocket money? Nerds or Hubba Bubba? Gobstoppers? Or maybe something of the chocolate variety – the choice was (is) pretty overwhelming. If you make the decision to go vegan, suddenly, you discover that many (most) of the sweet treats that grace the confectionary aisle of your local supermarket are riddled with sneaky ingredients that are in fact derived from animals or insects. The good news is that there’s an alternative – plant-based folk, say hello to Mylk Bar Sweets – it’s an online lolly shop dedicated to completely vegan sweets!
If you were to read the ingredients of your favourite lollies, it’s pretty likely you’ll see gelatin, honey, carmine (a red pigment which is derived from the crushed cochineal insect) or, the most common culprit, shellac (which is one of those in-everything ingredients that is actually made from the resinous excretion of certain insects and is used as a glaze for lollies and chocolate). Mylk Bar Sweets is bringing back a little bit of the nostalgia you felt as a kid and saving you from the laborious task of cross referencing with PETA’s list of animal ingredients, because ain’t nobody got time for that.
Mylk stocks a sweet-tooth satisfying selection including fizzy teddy bears, jumbo cola bottles, bubblegum mermaids, gummy fruits and a mixed bag for those who simply cannot decide. If your penchant is for dairy-free, vegan chocolate, there are rum balls, Ruffle bars and Fry’s Chocolate Creams, to name a few. If you’re keen to stock up on cruelty-free confectionary, take a sneaky peek at Mylk Bar Sweets here and heads up, there’s a restock coming on July 30.
