Just bought Rocky Road Squares, trying to keep myself from eating them until the girl gets home.

You know what's not vegan? The bran twig cereal. I got lazy and didn't label read before I bought it. I thought "they're bran twigs, what could they possibly have in them?" The answer, I discovered after I ate a bowl and finally read the ingredients, is whey. Whey? Why?!? :brood:

Maybe because it's a by-product of cheesemaking. Whey is the new gasoline.

Whey is a cheap way to add protein to a product. I was burned by those bran twigs once, too.

RnR found and brought home a box of rocky road squares on his last TJ's stop. Yummy.... Such a wonderful surprise!
