Instead of Processed Junk, Give Out These Healthier Treats for Halloween
Wary of handing out fun-size candies that are pumped full of processed sugar to the trick-or-treaters that ring your doorbell? Don't be a monster neighbor—go with these healthier, but equally sweet, treats this Halloween.While we all know loading up on sugar isn't the best idea, you sure don't want to disappoint any of those adorable witches, precious ghosts, or tiny little firemen. No one wants to have a Halloween like poor Linus in It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, after all.Thankfully, Thrive Market offers plenty of options for safely indulging your sweet tooth on All Hallows Eve and keep the hoards of trick-or-treaters happy—no matter your dietary preference. If you’re gluten-free, you need to beware of many mass-market candies. Trace amounts of wheat often hide in many, including candy corn and licorice. And lots of kids with a gluten intolerance need to worry about cross-contamination, which many candy manufacturers can't guarantee. Rest assured that you can find plenty of certified gluten-free options on Thrive Market, including these delicious lollipops.If you’re vegan, never fear—we've got plenty of dairy-free options for you! If you love a creamy treat, try Cocomel's coconut milk caramels. Oprah called them "transcendental," after all. If you'd rather grab something with a little tang, these Surf Sweets sour worms will definitely make you pucker up.If you only eat organic, make sure your sweets are just as pesticide-free as your fruits and vegetables. These choco chews are basically the organic version of Tootsie Rolls, a classic of the candy aisle. And you can't go wrong with fruity hard candies.If all you really want come October 31 is some pumpkin goodness, Thrive Market has you covered there, too. From plain old pumpkin puree, to pumpkin muffin mix, to pumpkin seeds, they really do offer everything pumpkin.
