[quote="Hiking Fox"]It has suddenly occurred to me, with a cold sinking dread, that this means Jacob's Fig Rolls might not be vegan.

They're the only biscuit I really like!

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! :cry:
I still don't get the argument. Especially with ecological food there is always the chance that whatever you eat may have some sort of non-vegetable life within it.

Argh! Stop worrying about the figs!!!

Think when someone picks your fruit and kills the wee dudes or someone combine harvests your field of wheat and crushes up some mice. You'd have to take up a Jain like existance. Things die as a consequence of us living, we harm as a consequence of living...but we give too.

Work against the system that doesn't stop to consider.

Hey don't worry, I wasn't really about to give up fig rolls. Was a joke.

My imagination just got carried away with the idea of figs not being vegan.

That's what I already do without trying. But I don't like the idea.

Get rid of humans? No thanks, then we'd get rid of a species which creates some of the kindest creatures on the planet.

We have such great heights and such shocking lows.

p.s. Let's just create a technology that doesn't allow any bad thoughts at all! That would make everyone happy right? :o

Yes, figs are vegan. And it isn't that bad is that there may possibly be small amounts of wasp body fluids, or dead wasp larvea. It's in complete harmony of nature, and it's going happen whether we eat the figs or not.

Get mine at Whole Foods, was a time that I thought I would never get to eat them again.

I've eaten many Middle East (Europe/Asia) figs in my life. I have looked at many of them very closely (I'm a curious weirdo) and I am quite sure none of these figs have ever contained any dead insects.

Im more grossed out to eat them more than vegan or not now..

But I have 2 bags of them now (not fresh).
What should I do with them? Never tried them and have no idea what recipe to make?!
