Pearson Candy Company "Peppermint Patties"
The Pearson equivalent of peppermint patties have always been vegan. What a great treat! The last bag I got had the old ingredients on the bag. But the patties inside indicated that they now have butter oil. I checked with the company, and they do indeed now contain dairy.
If you'd like the old patties back, please let Pearson know!!
A guy at work brings in a big Costco container of them. They have always had butteroil since he's been bringing them in -- about a year now. I didn't realize they had been vegan at one time.
I will definitely write. I cried the day I found out Jr. Mints had gelatin in them.
There's a candy store near my old campus, and since as far back as I started going to that store, I remember the pearson patties always had butteroil. i remember being really annoyed that that was the only thing making them non-vegan. This is at the very least since 3 years ago. I wonder how you managed to get them without it so recently. Is it possible they sell two different ones? unlikely, but i don't know how else to explain this contradiction. If they become vegan (again??), that'd be awesome, i love peppermint patties. I miss Jr. mints, too. What makes me so sad is that I really don't see the use of the non-vegan ingredient at all. I mean BUTTEROIL? Why??? It's never in any other candy, but it's in this otherwise vegan candy. Grrrr.
