Are you looking to make Halloween a little less scary this year? No, we don't mean taking down the fake cobwebs, spiriting away the spooky skeletons, or dumping the Jack-o'-Lanterns: we're talking about making that pillow-case full of candy less horrifying! With what they're getting, your kids will be eating a ton of corn syrup, artificial flavouring, and dye over the next week (not to mention the amount they ate on the walk home).
You can do your part and hand out candy that uses natural, organic, and non-GMO ingredients without sacrificing flavour and deliciousness. Here are five great options for you and your kids this Halloween!
Hand out these delicious eight-legged candies to any witches or warlocks who could use some sweet ingredients for their potions! Surf Sweets is committed to using real, organic flavourings and colourings to brighten up their candy; they also use Fair Trade and non-GMO ingredients! Sweetened with organic fruit juice and organic cane sugar, they're super wholesome and super delicious.
Let's be real: the best things kids can get trick-or-treating are chocolate bars. Enjoy Life let's you make their night better with Enjoy Life Ricemilk Crunch, Ricemilk Chocolate, and Dark Chocolate Minis; all of them are made with non-GMO ingredients and have no peanuts, gluten, soy, dairy, or egg. Allergy-free means everyone can enjoy the festivities!
If you're looking to serve something up at your upcoming Halloween party, Central Roast has you covered. The all-new Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Seeds and Ghost Pepper Almonds are delicious, perfect for a spooky costume party or in front of the TV with a scary movie. They're so good, you'll want to save these for yourself!
Who says candy has to be bad for you? Canadian company Smart Sweets has made two kinds of gummy bears with no GMOs, allergens, artificial colours or ingredients. The gummies are sweetened with stevia and chicory root, so an entire bagonly has 2 grams of sugar in them, while providing almost an entire day's worth of fibre!
Halloween and fall-time mean pumpkin flavoured... well, everything! Pumpkin-flavoured Dandies marshmallows are made entirely of natural ingredients, are 100% vegan, and free of most common allergens, including peanuts, tree nuts, milk, and egg. They're also gluten-free and contain absolutely no corn syrup. Add them to some hot cocoa, cookies, or Rice Krispy treats!
