These Healthy Candy Options Are All Treats, No Tricks
With its endless confectionaries and inevitable sugar comas, Halloween can be difficult if you have dietary restrictions. Healthy candy to the rescue! This year, while you're decorating your home for fall and putting the finishing touches on your costume, you can take part in the sweetness with some treats that are a bit more inclusive than their alternatives.
We'd eat gummy bears every day if we had the chance. In addition to being sugar-free, these babies are free from artificial colors, GMOs, and gluten.
Try saying the name of this candy five times fast. They're made with stevia extract instead of sugar, and come in a bag that can conveniently fit in your favorite purse.
Enjoy the goodness of real butter and cream, without the sugar.
This sugar-free take on the classic red licorice includes a fruity flavor and is also Halal and Kosher certified.
What would Halloween be without Reese's cups?
These caramels (which are kettle cooked from a century-old recipe, by the way) use real butter, fresh heavy cream, and Madagascar vanilla. It doesn't get better than that!
Not that you need an excuse to taste the rainbow, but the fact that Skittles are gluten-free just makes us love them even more.
This all-natural, non-GMO chocolate bar is kosher, vegan, and supports endangered species, habitats, and humanity.
Add a burst of juicy flavor to your snack time with these rainbow candies.
These bars are made with real fruit purees and juices (and without any high fructose corn syrup). We'll take two please!
Great for s'mores, melting into your hot chocolate, or a midnight snack (or two).
The only thing better than chocolate bars is mini chocolate bars because you can always have one with you.
When you buy these organic and low-sugar lollipops, you're supporting seven non-profit organizations. That's a candy we can get behind.
Even though we're still haunted by the time we had to pick melted Jolly Ranchers out of our jean pockets, we'll never stop loving these hard candies.
The day we learned that Oreos are vegan is the day life got a little bit better. Dip them in some milk, enjoy them on their own, or turn them into a whole new dessert recipe.
These blue raspberry belts are dusted with a tart sugar that's basically the perfect mix of sweet and sour.
