It was sixty degrees Fahrenheit outside but it's always warmer in his car I'm not sure how warm the trunk was but is there any way they can go bad in any way or have any other adverse effec being left there for that amount of time? Also the sauce is all natural with no preservatives if that makes a difference.

    Best answer: We have gotten this question a lot here. And I think the answer is interesting so I wrote a little essay.

    Veganism has a definition, a philosophy and a goal. Vegans try to behave in a way that is consistent with those things. Since honey is an animal product it is not considered vegan.

    Also whether you agree with this or not, it doesn't matter how the animal is treated. the dairy cows and laying chickens could lead wonderful lives. but milk and eggs aren't vegan. So its consistent that it doesn't matter how the bees are treated as well.

    However, he honey is stolen from the bees. The bees don’t want it to be taken. For many vegans that is all, they need to know. It’s exploitation of an animal.

    Another fact that vegans consider is that honey is not necessary or essential to the human diet. There ARE other sweeteners. It is just another way of ingesting sugar. It might have more nutrients than table sugar but it still has all the adverse health effects of any simple carbohydrate.

    There is harm done to bees by beekeepers. Some beekeepers are small businesses and like small farms do take good care of their bees. They still steal the honey. Clipping of wings, replacing (killing) the queen... these are just some of the practices that vegans see as a cruel.

    The big commercial beekeeping companies transport their hives in semis. and the transportation of the bees puts them under a lot of stress and millions of them die during the trips.

    Regardless, honey is still a gray area for vegans. There are so many vegans that think it's OK to eat honey they have a label: Begans. (Bee-gans, get it?)

    One of the issues Vegans have is that insects don’t deserve compassion. They have brains the size of a ballpoint pen tip. Another issue is that commercial beekeeping results in the fertilization of most fruit and nut trees. Something like 100 crops are dependent on commercial beekeeping fertilizing the crops.

    So If beekeeping isn't vegan - then neither are fruits and nuts. Vegans eat the crops that are pollinated by these bees. There is really no way to avoid them. Some vegans think that if crops are a byproduct of bee exploitation, and vegans eat crops, then why not honey, too?

    In general, honey bees are better cared for then commercial bees.

    The (pure ) vegan argument is that the vegan doctrine states animal suffering should be "reasonably avoided" as opposed to "avoided at any cost." And it's more than possible to avoid purchasing honey. It would be almost impossible to avoid all the foods that are pollinated by bees.

    To further complicate the whole thing. Right now we are in the middle of a huge bee die-off. No one is sure of what has caused Colony Collapse Disorder(CCD). But many experts suspect it might have to do with pesticides and fungicides, that the commercial bees are exposed to when they fertilize crops. Its possible that the CCD is human-caused. This may be another reason to support organic farming.

    The honey bees used for honey production are generally better-taken care of than the commercial bees that pollinate our crops. You can buy organic honey (and Free Trade honey, too). So you could argue that buying honey is helping to preserve and protect bees.

    Vegans are intelligent thinking people. Each vegan is more than qualified to make up their own mind.

    I do recommend that if you want to determine where you stand on this issue you take the time to read my links.

    Oh, BTW, I still have a little jar of honey in my pantry for when I get a sore throat. I bought it from a local beekeeper before reading those articles. I do not think I will buy another one.

Like vegan cookies, I have NO CLUE what’s in there that they use as substitutes.. most importantly, do vegan chocolate chip cookies (cant believe this stuff exists!) have the SAME Texture and taste as regular chocolate chip cookies, because if they do I’ll just eat them instead, since it’d be healthier..
