    Let’s say you’re going to a party and you volunteered to bring a (vegan) dish. Your friend knows that you’re vegan, but the other people attending don’t. Would you tell them what you brought is vegan?

    See, I have mixed feelings about this. I would say it as a heads up, but by saying it people might not eat it because it’s “vegan food”. (due to all these stereotypes about how vegan food isn’t good as nonvegan food) I’m thinking of not saying anything and if they ask something, maybe tell them, because I really don’t like it when people don’t eat what I make, and I’ve gone out of my way to actually make it.

    That’s just me, though. What would you do?

    I will tell the person if they are close to my group of friends or family. If there were complete strangers at a party or something I would wait to tell the fact. Be like, “Oh, and it’s vegan too!” Haha!

    I let all of the vegans at the party know, and wait until every one else has had some to tell them it was vegan. Most people won’t try my dishes knowing that they are vegan.

    I might mention it to the host in case she/he knows of someone who might be allergic/sensitive to soy or nuts or corn or something. And I definitely would mention it to anyone I know in the crowd that is vegan so they could make sure to get some!

    On the one hand, I don’t feel any reason to “out” my food as vegan if nobody asks. It’s not like it’s made out of aliens. It’s made out of vegetables. People already eat vegetables. If I announced that it was vegan, I’d feel like I was being superfluous.

    But a lot of people have weird conceptions about vegan food, and a lot of those people will NOT eat a certain food when they find out it’s vegan (but they’ll eat tons of other vegan approved food, like pb&j?) I wouldn’t want to feel like I was tricking someone into something. However, I think the “I won’t eat this because its VEEEGUUNNNN” attitude is really childish. If I tell them it’s vegan when they would have enjoyed it otherwise, I’m just enabling their childish behaviour.

    Tough choice. Know your people and just make the best decision you can for that group.

    Haha no i would not let the other people at the party know, If they asked me why it was so good i would say “Because its cruetly free and made with love not animal flesh”.

    I was raised eating meat, but I always had a love for animals. I had farm animals that my family and I would help take care of. At age 12 I went vegan because I knew that cows, pigs, and any other animals only want love and compassion.
