According to the ingredient list here, they do contain gelatine:

If you go to my thread. Krishna Foodies & other Religious Followers, post 3 will give you a link for hidden animal ingredients in places you would least expect. Pass onto your Grand daughter, lots of products with hidden animal additives

You could try these guys. http://www.thecrueltyfreeshop.co.nz/ . They don't have eskimos or fruit puffs but you could make one with their marshmallows.

oh and the butter, malt biscuits, and condensed milk all contain animal products.

I was thinking that also - what alternatives are going to be used for them.

I made Lolly Log for the first time in at least a decade and left in the fridge to thank son for house sitting last week. He sent me a txt to voice his absolute delight at being transported back to childhood.

Considering he is nearly 30 that is a real trip back in time - but I was thrilled he appreciated it so much.

I found fruit puffs at New World, but bought the last packet, and resorted to Eskimos for the second log. The fruit puffs stayed firmish, while the Eskimos turned marshmallowy. I also hadn't made it since my kids were little and watched their eyes light up, especially SIL. I don't recall it being soooo sweet. The first log, I assumed I'd done something wrong, so with the second, I followed the recipe exactly. Even my ultra sweet toothed husband couldn't eat it. Maybe next time only half the lollies.
