I get a scowl on my face every time I see Oregon Chai in a store because they stopped making the vegan one. Is honey really that necessary?

Honey in pop ("soda" for you Americans) is one of my biggest vegan pet peeves. WHYYYYYYYYY?

I've never heard of that one. What soda is it in?

I don't like those new hyper paranoid allergen labels where they say CONTAINS as if it were a fact. My dad got some coconut coated cashews from Costco and I had a handful (they are SO good) before thinking to read the label (cashews and coconut seemed safe). The ingredients are short, basically just cashews, vanilla, coconut, sugar, but then it says contains milk even though it isn't listed. And there are no weird additives, preservatives, natural flavors, or anything suspicious. I've decided they are vegan, but I don't like the guessing game.

(My dad has decided they are NOT vegan because he no longer wants to share)

The two that come to mind are Reed's Ginger Beer and Steelhead Rootbeer.

Oh! I also hate honey in bbq potato chips. GRRRRR.

I hate honey in honey mustard dressing. That's my favorite and I want to just buy a bottle for when I don't have tofu on hand to make Joanna's.

Honey is the new whey!

Yes, damn that ginger beer! I am usually pretty good at checking for honey in 'natural' drinks, but I cracked one open and took a drink and said to Brian, "I know this sounds really vegan, but there is honey in this. I can taste it."

Other random honey sighting: The mint canned yerba. The other canned yerbas are honey free, so are the bottled ones. And mint is my favorite and I can only get the cans here.

I would never have checked root beer for honey. Yikes. Mostly I get diet A&W since I have to limit sugar, but once in a while I want the real thing.

Yep, honey in root beer! I took a swig of root beer at Handlebar in Chicago last year & could immediately taste the honey. On closer inspection the label was dotted with bees!

Honey in root beer is the worst.

There are some snack/granola-type bars here that are gluten-, dairy-, egg- etc. free, right on the front of the label, and you'd think they'd be vegan, but then you turn them over and read the ingredients - forking honey. Why? If you go to all that trouble to make them suitable for nearly everyone, why not use agave or maple syrup to sweeten them? Goddamn honey.

I, too, am a honey mustard dressing fiend. I really like the maple mustard dressing (vinaigrette?) in VCON as a substitute. But then when I run out of maple syrup...I guess I could sub agave in a pinch. But yeah, fork honey. I would have never thought that honey would be in root beer, but I don't drink that much soda. My peeve is honey in bread. Kroger's organic line has all these really awesome looking breads, but they're all sweetened with honey. Or at least most of them are.

I don't think they're trying to please everyone....I think they're going for the healthy angle. I think most people's perception of honey is that it is sweet, wholesome, natural goodness that reminds them of Grandma's biscuits.

Someone just asked me if the lab grown meat is considered vegan. *marks off bingo card*

Yeah, it's the worst! I grabbed a Steelhead RB from Sizzle Pie a couple months back, not even thinking that there would be anything non-vegan in a rootbeer, and I totally could taste it. LAME.

Yeah, what the hell is this? Is honey really something that people associate with barbecues? Everyone I know uses brown sugar for their bbq sauce, so why is it in the damn chips?

On the honey note, I really think those little honey pots with the dipping stick thing are adorable, but I can't think of anything else I could possibly use one for. Why does honey need a special pot?

Yes! A local grocery store once had tofu samples - uncooked/no seasoning/straight from the package! Great way to make sure no one buys your tofu!

Man, I'm pretty tired of all these hipster food trucks that have ZERO vegan options. They're even "ethnic" food trucks, so they should have loads of veggie options, but they're run by white kids so it's all meat! bacon! local meat! cheese! Look how trendy we are! My city has a Friday night food truck thing in the summer and the only places that have vegetarian options are an Indian truck and a Thai truck, but I am very doubtful their veggie options are milk- and fish sauce-free.

I agree; I used to love Ginger Beer when I was vegetarian. But - pop (vs soda) is regional and I think common usage in the NW, also the South? I grew up in Seattle and never heard anyone say soda until I was an adult.

Yes, I hate this. Ditto for blogs that post a photo of the food, tell you vaguely what it is, but don't tell you how to make it. It's the same reason I don't understand the point of porn; it's like, "So someone else is having sex; good for them. WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME???"

Yup, I said pop as a kid in BC, no one knew what I was even talking about when I moved to southern CA, and then when I moved to Seattle I had to relearn pop.

Are we going to have another regional language discussion in this thread? Maybe someone could make a new thread for it.

My peeve today is honey in all the Target brand granola and milk in their stupid buffalo potato chips. Lamesauce.

I think we've had the pop vs. soda debate before.

I am in soda country.

And it's called 'Ginger' here, no matter what it tastes of! Even if it's Coke! GINGER GINGER GINGER! I don't even call it that. Perhaps it is apocryphal. Perhaps I am apocryphal. Oh shiitake. What have I done. WHO AM I?!?!?!
