A VEGAN has confirmed that he confusingly still eats the small, individually-packaged French cheeses Babybel.
Nathan Muir refuses all other animal products, including gelatine and chips cooked in animal fat, but has made an illogical exception for the slightly twee snack cheeses.
Peeling a cheese, Muir said: “I gave up all animal products in 2014 and I’ve never looked back. All animal products except Babybel.
“I’m against milking cows because it’s cruel, but Babybels are only small so they can’t use that much milk. So it’s not really being cruel to cows, more like just hassling them for a bit of milk.
“I also feel eating Babybels helps me stick to the rest of my vegan diet, so it’s for the greater good. It’s definitely not because I just really like Babybels.
“I’ve always been unafraid to challenge society’s conventions. That’s why I’m a vegan who eats Babybel.”
Muir’s girlfriend Helen Archer said: “It’s probably just as well because ever since going vegan Nathan’s mainly eaten Marmite on toast and crisps. If it wasn’t for Babybel he’d probably die.”
