Uncrustables were always popular in school lunches in my day, but to everyone’s shock who has ever known this about me, I have never once had an uncrustable. But boy are/were they popular. I’m not sure if there’s a resurgence in their popularity or something, but lately I’ve been running into them quite often and have wondered about finally giving them a shot.
But judging by processed foods and their rampant obsession with putting milk in just because, I had my doubts if they were vegan.
So are they vegan? Kind of. They have a disclaimer in their FAQs on their website that “Uncrustables are not considered vegan”, however there are some flavors that do not explicitly have animal products that are listed below. My guess is either the sugar or diglycerides may be using animal biproducts .
My main complaint with Uncrustables is that they’re made with peanut butter, and that’s actually why I never tried one as I never liked peanut butter that much (heresy, I know). I wish they had an almond butter option, but peanut butter is so much more popular and thus cheaper so I doubt that’ll come alone. I guess I’ll give the peanut-butter ones a try just to know how they are.
So what flavors are (maybe) vegan?
- Reduced Sugar Peanut Butter & Strawberry Spread on Whole Wheat
- Reduced Sugar Peanut Butter & Grape Jelly on Whole Wheat
- Peanut Butter & Strawberry Jam
- Peanut Butter & Grape Jelly (both club and normal sizes)
- Peanut Butter Sandwich
What flavors aren't vegan?
