I noticed some on PETA.org's store. Anybody tried them? Are they worth my money?

And- is there such thing as gelatin without animal by-products? If so, where can I get them? (I live in Canada)

it wouldn't be called gelatin, i'm afraid.

the closest you can get is maybe Agar-Agar or some other types of plant derived cellulose.

also, please be careful!  Kosher Gelatin can be made of fish bones.  If you're vegan, that's a no-no!  If you eat fish, maybe that's okay for you.

Always read the ingredients.

haven't tried the marshmellows.  I'm dying to make the small ones that go in cereal because i miss my lucky charms... hahahahahaha

Yes, they are worth it and delicious. They don't have gelatin they have agar or carageenan. Rice krispie treats! Yum!!

Agar and caregeenan are not fish gelatin, they are both derived from seaweed and are 100% vegan. It is a plant based thing, like spirulina. Other types are arrowroot and kudzu.

there is one marshmallow brand that uses "imes product and has been found to contain animal proteins.  there are some out there though that still are surely animal by product free.  i think pangae or pangea.com sells them.  there also at stores like wild oats and you can still make rice krispies with marshmallow fluff i believe
