Candy Alternatives

October has arrived, and with it so has the flood of Halloween sweets and treats. We were spooked to learn that American consumed 5.5 million pounds of candy in 2016. It's estimated that $2.7 billion will be spent on Halloween candy this year, so make sure you're putting your money to good use with some of our whole food alternatives below. 

Top Candy Alternatives

Pumpkin Oranges - Fresh fruit is always a treat! Drop a clementine or orange into Trick-or-Treaters bag this Halloween. Make them festive by using an edible marker to draw a Jack-O-Lantern face on the fruit. 27473C12-35C6-4854-99B3-E7BF95A20EE0-240-000000036ACEBB12.jpeg

 

Honey Sticks - We're sweet on honey, and use it in our baked goods, yogurts, and sauces. Honey sticks are a quick & easy treat to pass out - plus they are easy to find from a local farmer at your farmer's market or online. Here's how to make them at home! 

 

Fruit Leather - Skip out on the gummy candies and have fruit leather instead. It's simple to make at home with your favorite fruit, honey, and a little bit of time in the oven.

Skip the food

Kids will get lots of candy, so make your treats stand out! Handing out goodies like bubbles, stickers, or small games will give them something to do long after the candy is gone.
