Default Would you want to know ?

I was in line at Panera. I overheard the lady behind me comment on being a vegan. Then I heard her say she was contemplating a veggie sandwich or the broccoli cheddar soup.
I turned around and told her gently that the broccoli cheddar soup had a chicken stock base to it.
She got mad. Said it was one of her favorite soups and now I've ruined it for her.

I think she was mad to learn it had chicken stock in it...not mad at me necessarily...but it felt like a "kill the messenger" moment.

So..
Would you want to know ?
Should I keep my fat mouth shut next time ?

It should have read like, "Some vegan, ordering a cheddar and broccoli soup!"

And not in response to your post. I wrote it at the same time

As a vegan, I'd want to know. She sounds very confused. Poor lady. (maybe she thought the cheddar was soy cheese )Don't worry about it, you did the right thing.

Default Re: Would you want to know ?

I've met some people who self-identify as vegan/vegetarian who really don't get it. Vegan drinking a Latte with cow milk - but it was skim! A vegetarian who ate chicken noodle soup - but it didn't have chunks of chicken.

What U did was perfectly fine. Anybody who actually IS vegan (which I doubt this woman was, since she is eating CHEESE soup in the first place) would want to know if they were consuming animal products, since there is a reason they choose not to. U didnt ruin anything for her. She is confused.

Yes--I would absolutely want to know! and for me it's a health issue. I'm allergic to chicken When I realized that it is in everything at the Chinese place at the mall, including the veggie dishes it explained SO MUCH!

I've also been served salmon for me "vegan meal" at black tie affairs Most people don't get it.
