candy happens. Between all the commercial-driven fun this time of year and the store shelves piled high with tricky treats, it’s pretty inevitable that candy will make it to our mouths this weekend. Kudos if you can’t relate, but we’re “doing it for the children.” Am i right?
Sugar is one thing, but chemical-laden, highly processed and artificially colored junk is another. We’re not craving corn syrup–we’re craving chocolate! Not all candy is created equal. We’ve found five dupes for our top Halloween treats and we think you’ll love ’em as much as we do.
UnReal Candy: We love everything this candy company makes, but especially the little candy-coated chocolates! The ingredients are whole and clean, meaning they actually fill you up as they’re supposed to. Bonus: Gisele and Tom Brady are big fans – must be something to it.
Cocomel Coconut Milk Caramels: With flavors from original, espresso, vanilla and sea salt, as well as chocolate-covered varieties, these caramels satisfy that sweet and salty taffy craving in a gluten-free, dairy-free chew with only five natural ingredients.
Surf Sweets Organic Jelly Beans: Need we say more? Colored and flavored with natural and organic fruit juices, these jelly beans are an easy and painless swap.
YumEarth Organic Lollipops: Organic, fruit sweetened and all natural, these are a no brainer and include fun, naturally flavored pops like pomegranate and mango.
Justin’s Peanut Butter Cups: Organic, gluten-free and full of flavor, these won’t have you missing their junk food counterparts. You can feel good about treating yourself with these cane-sugar sweetened dark chocolate, milk chocolate, or white chocolate cups. Mmmm!
Heavenly Organics, Honey Patties: These organic all natural chocolate-covered honey-sweetened ginger, almond, pomegranate, or peppermint flavored patties are perfect for a satisfying that sweet tooth without breaking your lifestyle.
