“The deliciously candy Matcha Sugar Cookie from Orange & Blossom and the unbeatable basic Black and White Cookie from Ben & Esther’s ship fabulous taste with out utilizing a single egg or splash of milk,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk, who is aware of her vegan cookies, having eaten them for over 50 years. “Each scrumptious cookie on PETA’s ‘good’ record helps deliver peace on Earth to all residing beings on this season of goodwill.”

On a extra somber notice, each one who goes vegan spares practically 200 animals every year day by day struggling and terrifying deaths and reduces their very own danger of growing coronary heart illness and most cancers. PETA’s free vegan starter equipment may also help these trying to make the change.

Different winners embrace the Ginger Pine-Apricot Cookie from Like Mother’s Solely Vegan in Cincinnati; the Marzipan Cookie from Candy Maresa’s in Kingston, New York; and the Chocolate Raspberry Cookie from Bake Me Vegan in Teton Village, Wyoming.
