DD wants to make a marshmallow cupcake recipe she's found for a school cake day thing, but she doesn't want to leave out her Muslim classmates, bless her, so no pig gelatin allowed. Where can I buy pig-free marshmallows? (preferably cheaply).

I think the M&S mini marshmallows are veggie also a few of the supermarket own brands ones (Asda ones were when I used them years ago)

I think the haribo people do a halal version which asda sells. (in the asian food aisle) Your daughter is so sweet to be so considerate.

If you have asian/halal shops near you they will definitely sell them.

Definitely a lovely gesture.

If you live near any kosher shops you'll be able to get some there.

Great, I should be able to find some somewhere then - may try Tooting Broadway shops if Brixton market can't provide.

That's very thoughtful of both of you. I remember watching James Martin making marshmallows on his cookery show last year. It looks easy to make. You can get vegetarian/vegan gelatine from any major grocery shop or the asian shop where it's called agar.

Just discovered recently that those fizzy cola jelly pops from the pick n mix contains pig gelatine.

if you are in Brixton try Noor Cash & Carry in the market. Tooting will definitely have.

e-bay - look for Sweet Vegan marshmallows, they sell mis-shapes cheaper than they do from their own shop. M&S ones (and any other supermarket versions I've ever checked) are not veggie or halal.

Marshmallow fluff from a jar might also be an option, if it's more the flavour you want than needing the texture, as they tend not to have gelatin in.
