Just because you’re the “healthy mom” or the friend who overspends at Erewhon, doesn’t mean you need to be the buzzkill who comes to the party with a crudite tray and a fistful of digestive enzymes.
We actually encourage you to bring both, but add something from our list below to keep things festive and, you know, spooky.
Almost everything we’ve included below has sugar in it — however natural. Our best advice? Drink our kind of roadie before you head out and make sure those trick-or-treaters have a solid meal before the inevitable sugar binge!
