Three questions:

-I've got a handful of packets of dry Lipton vegetable soup mix sitting around, boxless, so I don't know the ingredients. It's the kind that can be made as soup, but that most people mix with sour cream or any number of weird things to make dips and salads and such. I'd really like to make soup with this stuff as a base, but I have no idea what's in it--it's tangy so I'm a little suspicious of dairy or something. And it's New Year's eve, so I can't justify running to the store to check the boxes there, lol. The Lipton websites are no help. Anybody know what's in it?

-While I'd like to cut back on refined sugar, I'm still going to need it from time to time, and I'd like to get my baking-fanatic omni family to make any small transition possible, so: are there any brands of widely available white sugar that specify they are beet sugar, which is never refined with bone char?

-My brother just acquired this huge bag of gummy bears, which stare at me through the plastic of the bag tauntingly. Interestingly, the ingredients list is very specific: "syrup from corn, sugar from beets, water gelatin, sorbitol from fruits and vegetables, citric and malic acids from fruits...vegetable oil, plant wax." Could that curious "water gelatin" thing be agar?! If so, I believe these are vegan gummies.
