There aren’t many questionable in Kurkure and in fact the only one is sugar. The brand has a vegetarian label, which could be a clue to if the sugar is vegan-friendly. I will still address a potential issue with sugar when it comes to veganism.
The most common sugar in the snack and candy industry is refined cane sugar. The problem with refined cane sugar is the fact that a common bleaching method is using bone char from dead cows.
This is not acceptable for vegans, because it’s exploiting animals even tho they are dead. This is a hot topic within the vegan community and a very controversial topic with many opinions.

Most flavors of Kurkure is vegetarian except Kurkure Puffcorn Yummy Cheese which contains cheese is suited for Lacto-Ovo and Lacto. The only questionable ingredient in Kurkure would be sugar, that could be bleached using bone char.
