Lidl now have vegan ring donuts!

After being given the wrong information in June regarding Lidl bakery products I specifically asked about the doughnuts as the reason I had asked for an updated bakery list, is I had been told the jam donuts haven't been vegan since December by a vegan working at Lidl. So the jam filled donuts are no longer vegan, but the rings ones are.

Re: Pink Iced Ring Doughnuts 6446, Glazed Ring Doughnuts 6445 and Jam Filled Donuts 9538
We refer to your most recent correspondence regarding the above items. We are sorry for the delay in responding.
We can confirm that the Pink Iced Ring Doughnuts and the Glazed Ring Doughnuts are suitable for vegans. However, the Jam Filled Donuts are not suitable for vegans.
Assuring you of our best intentions at all times.
Yours sincerely,
For and on behalf of Lidl UK GmbH

From this page (provided by a vegan working at Lidl) it also looks like the chocolate ones are vegan too!

Foxes Party Iced biscuits



Thank you for your email regarding Party Rings.

We can confirm that we do not use any animal derived ingredients to make any of the Party Iced products that state suitable for ‘Vegetarians’

The Party Footballs and the Party Fairytales are actually suitable for Vegetarians , however we cannot make this claim on the packs yet as they are being made on a line that used gelatine when it was being used in the Party products as a whole. The packaging will reflect its ‘Vegetarian’ status once the packaging has been used. The standard Party Rings will be gelatine free in the very near future but please be aware there will still be some product on the Supermarket shelves that were made before the change.

The Chocolate Rings do still contain some animal derived colourants.

These products are manufactured on the same production line which uses dairy ingredients and also we use brushes with animal bristles and our conveyor belts contain wool fibres.

We have passed your comments onto our marketing Team about making a ‘Vegan’ claim as well as a ‘Vegetarian’ one our packaging.

I hope that information is of help to you

With kind regards
