It’s almost that time of year again! When candy and sweets come rolling in by the jack-o-lantern bucket full. Luckily at our house, we are too old to trick-or-treating, so the only candy that makes its way into these four walls is whatever the heck we go out and buy ourselves.

Here, I’ve put together a list of my 4 favorite Healthy Halloween Candy Alternatives, that taste just like- or dare I say better than the originals but with WAY less sugar.

With No Artificial Colors, Flavors or Preservatives and only 3 Grams of Sugar and 6g net Carbs Per Bag its pretty hard to get better than that. Not to mention they are ALL Vegan and give back to 7 different causes around the world.

Really it’s all in the name. These deliciously rich fair-trade chocolate candies are truly UN-real. The founders were deprived of all sweets as children so they reinvented their favorite classics with simple organic, non-gmo project-verified ingredients and WAY less sugar and my lord, they did a smashing job.
TRY THEM IF YOU LOVE: M&M’s, Peanut M&M’s, Peanut Butter Cups, Almond Butter Cups, Caramel Peanut Nougat Bars, Chocolate Coconut Bars, and SO MUCH MORE!

Tara started SmartSweets after her love affair with candy turned into an unhealthy relationship with food. She also experienced the negative effects excess sugar had on her health. So she quit college and bought a gummy bear mould and the rest is history! The brand also plays on traditional candy’s and flavors but in the world of all things fruity and gummy.
TRY THEM IF YOU LOVE: Cola Bottle Gummys, Gummy worms, RedVines, Sour Watermelon Bites, Fruity Gummy Bears, Peach Rings, Swedish Fish, Sour Patch Kids and classic lollipops.

In 2010, a health-food lover named Cynthia decided to kick sugar, but couldn’t let go of chocolate. So she made her own no-sugar added chocolate and launched Lily’s Sweets with her longtime friend Chuck. They have a great line of various chocolates for baking and just launched gummy bears and sour worms, which I’m very excited to try.
TRY THEM IF YOU LOVE: Caramels, Chocolate Covered Nuts, Peanut Butter Cups, Baking Chocolate, Filled Chocolate Bars, White Chocolate Bars (Including Cookies & Creme), and luxury Extra Dark, Dark and Milk Chocolate bars too.
I hope you and your family find something you love from my Healthy Halloween Candy Alternatives list. I’m nearly certain that once you try ANY of these, you’ll find yourself wondering why the other brands out there pack so much useless sugar in there to begin with.
