Snoepjes met vlees!? 🤯

Echt gebeurd:

Vandaag kreeg ik spekjes. Mama had ze gekocht, want op het blikje stond er dat ze biologisch waren. Dat waren ze ook. Maar ik vroeg paniekerig, “Mama, zijn deze snoepjes wel vegetarisch!?” Er zijn namelijk veel snoepjes met gelatine. Dat is een vet dat komt van dieren (normaal gezien van varkens). En, wat bleek…de snoepjes waren niet vegetarisch!

Heel veel mensen denken dat snoepjes (en al zeker biologische snoepjes) altijd vegetarisch zijn. Mama dacht dat als snoepjes biologisch zijn, dan zijn ze nooit met gelatine. Maar dat is dus niet waar. Mama gaat voortaan dus altijd checken of snoepjes vegetarisch zijn voordat ze ze koopt.

Wist je dat: zelfs de meeste Gummy beertjes zijn met gelatine! De meeste mensen weten dat dus niet eens!! 😮🤯


We are a family from Amsterdam who moved to Antwerp to homeschool our gifted son because homeschooling is illegal in The Netherlands. The blog, started in March 2016, was originally created to register our homeschooling experiences, mainly about our son and later also about his little sister as she gets older. Over the years, however, most of my entries have gravitated towards exploring together with Simon as he has developed an insatiable passion for programming, math and science. We have continued to expose him to a great variety of subjects: he has been learning piano and Chinese since age four, has been taking private lessons in French since we homeschool, he likes swimming. Yet it looks like math (and in a broader sense - patterns and systems) is his true calling. He has been teaching himself programming, machine learning, math and physics in a very disciplined, devoted fashion, and has already impressed several professionals with his depth, determination and perseverance. To learn more about Simon also check out his website Simon's younger sister Neva also has her own blog at where she is mainly planning to write about her concerns around plastic pollution and climate change.
