    i think there needs to be another list for non starting vegans who are extremely serious about not consuming any animal products at all.

      @Destinee96 I watched how its made back one when i couldn’t eat or drink anything cow related because i became obsessed with them, and i watched how they make jello. It’s cattle bones. They throw chemicals on them and smash them to a powder substance then add in the flavor and coloring and there you have jello. I haven’t touched jello since. And I used to love jello vodka shots );
