Vegan Valentine’s Day Recipes FAQ

When it comes to Conversation Hearts, the answer is a resounding no – they’re not vegan. The culprit behind their non-vegan status is gelatin, an animal-derived ingredient.

Always check the label and look out for the vegan logo to ensure you’re getting a plant-based chocolate.
