Birthday Recap from Vegan Girl

Hi, I'm Vegan Girl. I went to a birthday party today. First I thought it was going to be hard because I thought there would be a lot of people and they would ask me a lot of questions. Like, why aren't you eating pizza and cake? So I didn't want to go. I changed my mind because my mom said there would not be a lot of people and then I saw my best friend(Hermione) at a store and she said that she was going so I felt good. And then my mom let me get a special vegan cupcake to bring to the party and a snack. But we played the most of the time. When it was time to eat pizza, I just ate my snack. No one said anything. we painted our nails.And then we went outside to play. My friend the birthday girl she said do you want some vegan juice. And I was thinking duh, all juice is vegan. But that was nice of her to think about. It was really,really fun!

  1. "Doh, all juice is vegan!" LOL, so true... Amazing how people still can't recognize an animal from a plant. Good on you for being kind enough not to point it out :)

  2. Actually all juice is not vegan! :)
    Many use cochineal to add pink coloring. Cochineal (or cochinate) is a bug. It's often found in pink lemonade and grapefruit juices.

  3. P.S. Sometimes it is also called carmine. But it's all bug juice. I know off the top of my head it is in Tropicana Ruby Red Grapefruit juice. But I've seen it in several other pink colored juices.
