DOTS are a popular gumdrop candy made by Tootsie, the same company that makes Tootsie Rolls. Gummy candies are not typically vegan because they usually contain gelatin, an animal byproduct made from collagen; however, DOTS surprisingly do not contain gelatin or any other animal-based ingredients, which means DOTS are vegan.
