5 Better for You Candy Options to Taste this Halloween

Oct 25, 2021

We know you want to dig into your kids’ Halloween haul, but those sweets are filled with refined sugars and additives. If you’re looking for some better for you options, you can still treat yourself. Here are 5 of our favorite finds—they are all gluten-free, vegan and lower in sugar.

Gigantic Candy

We love Gigantic Candy for its Fair Trade dark chocolate, gluten-free recipe, and plant-based caramel. Clocking in at only 7 grams of sugar, this is a sweet treat to indulge in even after spooky season ends.

Whoa Dough

Whoa Dough is cookie dough with 4 grams of protein, 9 grams of sugar, and 0 guilt. It’s a vegan, gluten-free alternative that comes in a variety of divine flavors—from classic chocolate chip cookie dough to brownie batter. Free of dairy, eggs, and soy, you can enjoy this plant-based treat without worry, whether you’re at home or on the go.

Nib Mor Chocolate

Nib Mor is a vegan, gluten-free, and organic dark chocolate brand that offers a wide range of products. This chocolate comes in single-serving packs so you can satisfy your chocolate cravings with just a little treat. Choose from convenient snacking bags (in delicious flavors like tart cherry), snack size bars, or hot cocoa.

Smart Sweets

Enjoy sweet (and sour) candy with up to 92% less sugar. Smart Sweets is a great way to indulge in favorites like gummy worms without the sugar crash. We love the Sweet Fish™, a sugar-free version of our favorite classic candy.

Dandies® Vegan Marshmallows

Who doesn’t love to indulge in s’mores or a hot chocolate with marshmallows on top? It’s hard to find marshmallows made without gelatin, but Dandies® Vegan Marshmallows are made with no gelatin or corn syrup for a vegan, gluten-free (but still pillowy) confection. Try the vanilla, pumpkin, and peppermint flavors.

We hope that our healthier Halloween snacks help you indulge your sweet tooth this season. Next up we have an interview with one of our favorite female founders. Stay tuned to find out who!
