Better Halloween Candy: Ethical and Natural Halloween Candy Alternatives

Give Better, More Natural Candy this Halloween

For many kids, Halloween may be one of the only times of year to get candy, which is part of the magic of it. Luckily, you can have the treats and avoid the tricks in the ingredient lists. We’re thankful for these two companies for providing better and more natural Halloween candy!


UnReal knows what is important. I feel like they should really be called “REAL” because their candies contain absolutely ZERO artificial ingredients and are non-gmo verified. Their chocolate is also fair-trade certified to ensure that their products are helping, not hurting communities and the planet. Besides being extremely ethical, their candy contains significantly less sugar and more fiber compared to other chocolate cups or candy coated chocolate products – a result of real ingredients!
