Before we get into it...

Let's talk about what to look for and what to avoid when shopping for Halloween candy this year. The first thing to always look out for when it comes to candy is the amount of added sugars. Although we're not trying to avoid sugar altogether (it's candy!), if you can find options made with honey or coconut sugar that's ideal. It's definitely better to have a little sugar than to opt for sugar-free options made with sugar alcohols or artificial sweeteners. The next thing to look out for is Artificial Flavorings and Colors. These are commonly found in the most popular candies on the market and are ingredients made with chemicals to enhance flavor and color which can be addictive when consumed.
Be on the lookout for products with all-natural, and organic ingredients when shopping for candy this season!

Unreal Dark Chocolate Coconut Minis

To kick it off, these UNREAL Dark Chocolate Coconut Minis are sweetened with coconut and cane sugar. They are mouth-watering and won’t leave you with any of the negative effects you may feel with sugar alcohols such as maltitol or sorbitol!

Bear Apple, Pear, & Strawberry Fruit Rolls

Next, these Bear Fruit Rolls are our TP-approved swap for Fruit Roll-Ups. With no added sugar and 100% natural ingredients, there’s not much spooky about these!

Alter Eco Classic Dark Chocolate Truffles

Not only are these Classic Dark Chocolate Truffles perfectly rich, but Alter Eco products also use recyclable or compostable packing and use sustainable growing practices to offset 100% of their carbon emissions. Need we say more?

Hu Organic Snacking Gems

Hu Kitchen gets it all right - organic chocolate with no weird ingredients. These Hu snacking gems are the perfect addition to your October 31st night, sure to kick any chocolate cravings! They're also great for making homemade spooky treats that call for melted chocolate.

GoGo Squeez Halloween Variety Pack

For those who choose a more nutritious pick for their kids, we reccommend this GoGo Squeez Halloween Pack. Made with 100% real fruit, these fruit packs are our favorite pick!

Lesser Evil Organic Himalayan Pink Salt Popcorn

Similarly, for those who prefer salty to sweet - Lesser Evil’s Himalayan Pink Salt Popcorn is a MUST. Chock full of nutritious ingredients, this functional snack will be a Halloween win. These are a better option than most pretzel snacks you'll find.

Reese's Organic Peanut Butter Cups

Finally, Reese’s products are always a fan favorite around Halloween. These Organic Reese's Peanut Butter Cups are the perfect swap for regular Reese's. We think these will be a trick-or-treater favorite!
