Just because we enjoy an all natural (free of preservatives, colors and flavors) diet, doesn’t mean we can’t have a bit of candy every now and then.
With Halloween nearly upon us, I have stocked up on better candy options. When the kids come home from Trick or Treating, we will trade out their candy. The collected candy will then be sent to the U.S. Military.
In addition to packaged treats to hand out, it’s always a great idea to make your own. Maple Candy is a wonderful treat this time of year.
What’s in our candy bowl?
Enjoy Life Candy Bars– We have kids with allergies, therefore a safe chocolate is important.
Endangered Species Bug Bites– Small squares of chocolate (natural, fair trade and organic).
Yummy Sours Gummy Worms- These gummy candy treats contain 120mg of vitamin C. They are made by the manufacturer of Yummy Bears vitamins.
Yummy Earth Lollipops and Rootbeer drops- a natural alternative to our favorites.
In years past it has been hard to find acceptable natural (and allergy safe) treats locally and I’ve had to order online. This year, I was able to find all of these treats at Whole Foods Market.
I left it up to the hubby to buy the candy- so I am sure it is whatever he likes and oh-so-bad-for-you…
Good for you guys, sending it to the troops!
