some branded chocolates – no longer suitable for Vegetarians?

Filed under: Eatables,Fun,Health and Nutrition,Personal — ramsblog @ 10:09 am

hmmm… that’s intersting. Most times when I go for lunch / snack meetings, the only thing(s) I could eat are raw vegetables and fruits, crackers (depends if wheat crackers available, since I was surprised to notice prawn/crab crackers and didn’t look different until i noticed a name or some one told me), chocolates and nuts with a cup of coffee/water/orange juice. I have found chocolotes were mostly available for snack time meetings. However, it appears like there comes the restriction for vegetarians for not being able to eat chocoloates as there will be animal product included in chocolate preparation now. See this article.

Alright I just mentioned about the  negative side of the aspect. Lets look at the brighter side. Agreed,I won’t be able to eat those chocolates now, and at the same time, i am not adding those unnecessary calories into my system. I can probably choose to drink more water instead of eating chocolates hehe…



  1. Usually they put green dot in all “pure vegetarian” products , isn’t ? If not you can sue them 😉

  3. regarding “green dot” –> I started looking for such a dot after seeing this comment here. i haven’t noticed on all international brand products. yes, i noticed it on a recent purchase I made – Nissin vegetarian noodles.

  5. Oh!! so that means, no more chocolates – will have to be careful… 😦

    @Bach, green dot is not displayed in most of the chocolate brands.. What I do is if no dot or ingredients not mentioned – then don’t take risk eating it 🙂

  6. I mostly do exactly what Prashanth mentioned here – read the ingredients (if they are packed) and look for familiar names. if there is anything unfamiliar and unheard of, I leave those items there. I have been asked a few times on why i look at the labels before eating and if I was dieting to read the dietary information 🙂
