|Hi <<First Name>>!
WELCOME TO DAY TWENTY!
Kym's advice for day twenty:
Is popcorn vegan?
For many people, it just wouldn't be good and proper to go the the movies without buying popcorn! But what about the 'butter'? Of course normal butter is not vegan, as its made from dairy. Commonly though, if you are going to one of the major cinemas like Hoyts, Greater Union or Event cinemas, the 'butter' is just an artificial flavouring. The ingredients of cinema popcorn is commonly: raw corn, coconut oil, flavouring 160A (which is vegan), Salt: Colour 102 - tartrazine (also vegan). Of course I am generalising here and its worth sending an email to the cinema people once a year or so to check if they ingredients are the same. Every time we send an email to a company asking if their food is vegan, we are helping to show them that there are people who truly care for animals and giving them more reason to sell products that are vegan :-)
Check out this website for some great vegan popcorn recipes that you can have at home in your own 'cinema' :-)
