No, there are currently no vegan M&M’s. The primary ingredients in M&M’s are milk chocolate, sugar, cornstarch, and palm oil. All of these ingredients can be derived from animal sources, making them non-vegan. There are, however, a number of vegan candy options available, including vegan versions of candy bars, gummy bears, and more. Many popular vegan candy brands are available online or in health food stores. These vegan candy options are often sweetened with natural ingredients and colored with natural dyes for a healthier option.
Why are M and MS Not vegan?
M&M’s are not vegan because they contain several animal-derived ingredients. These ingredients include milk, gelatin, and carmine (a red food coloring derived from crushed insects). Milk is the most obvious of these ingredients as it is taken from cows, pigs, or goats, and is a major component in the recipe for M&M’s. Gelatin is derived from animal byproducts and is commonly used to help thicken and stabilize food products such as M&M’s. Carmine is a red food coloring made from the crushed bodies of female cochineal insects and is used to color many candies, including M&M’s.
Are peanut M and MS vegan?
No, peanut M&M’s are not vegan; they contain both dairy (in the form of skimmed milk powder, lactose, and whey powder) and gelatin, which is an animal product derived from the skin, tendons, and bones of cows and pigs. Additionally, most M&M’s products are produced on machinery that is shared with other animal-based products, and may contain traces of egg, fish, and other animal products.
“Are Crispy M&M’s vegan?”
No, Crispy M&M’s are not vegan. They contain several ingredients derived from animal products, including milk, and cocoa butter, which is a byproduct of the cocoa bean. Additionally, Crispy M&M’s are processed in a facility that also processes other animal-based ingredients, including egg and peanut butter, so there could be trace amounts of non-vegan ingredients in the final product.

I’m Brooke, and I love being vegan. I know all there is to know about the vegan lifestyle, and I love sharing that knowledge with others.
I own a vegan restaurant in Boston, and I love helping people make the switch to a plant-based diet. It’s not always easy, but it’s definitely worth it!
