I wonder if I'll be able to find them elsewhere?
although I'll be back in Austin in a few weeks.
perhaps hopefully toyjoy will still have some in stock...

confectioners glaze can go to hell, for taking readily available sprinkles away from me.

I eat confectioner's glaze.

However... I did not see it on the package when I first got the shipment in. I just remember that last year I was really excited about them not having gelatin in them. Sorry dudes to get you all excited.

I decided to bump this with some interesting info.

Let's put the confectioner's glaze aside for a sec.

A friend of mine emailed the company about Peppermint Junior Mints.
We all thought that the company makes the Peppermint JM's once a year and that this one time a year they don't contain gelatin.

Well, it looks like it's a total misprint. They still contain gelatin and it's an ingredient misprint on their peppermint junior mint boxes.

I thought that it was kind of interesting news.

Was it Urban Housewife? I saw that on twitter. Bummer!!!
That means they misprinted it last year as well because it didn't say gelatin on the package then either.

Why would there be a misprint every year on the same ingredient?  That doesn't make any sense!

According to her post on twitter, they don't contain gelatin but do have the confectioner's glaze, which isn't vegan.

"Just received an email from the company, Peppermint Crunch Junior Mints are NOT vegan. No gelatin, but they have beetle based coating, ew!"-urbanhousewife

Either way, if they do indeed contain gelatin, we should start a letter campaign or something awesome

My boyfriend bought a pack for me on Halloween. Even drunk, I only ate a few. I thought the peppermint stick crunchies were gross.
