Halloween is around the corner so let’s talk candy! I’m a fan. I’m pro candy y’all! Not all candy is created equal though. There are multiple reasons someone may go looking for alternative options. Allergies, intolerances, veganism, vegetarianism, better ingredients, eco-friendly packaging, or even boycotting the shady business practices of some of the biggest companies in the world. No matter the reason, you deserve delicious candy in you life, especially when it’s Halloween!
So let’s get in to it!
Top 5: Wholesome Halloween Candy
Montreal, QC based gourmet candy makers, Squish, has a whole line of vegan friendly candies in a variety of delicious flavours. (They do have non-vegan candy swell so be sure to check the labels if that’s what you’re looking for.) These don’t come in individual packets, but if you’re staying in this Halloween it’s a great time to cut down on all that extra packaging anyway! (Squish Cherry Watermelon Crush at Well.ca)
These tasty treats out of Vancouver, BC have good gummy consistency and great flavour and that says a lot since SmartSweets whole scene is using very little sugar! It’s important to note that not all of their products are gelatin-free so be sure to check out their ‘Plant-Based’ line if that’s what you’re looking for. (These peach rings ARE gelatin-free though!)

Richmond, BC based HerbaLand started in the gummy vitamin game but have expanded their vision to include a line of vegan friendly Good News Gummies! A simple and delicious treat anyone can enjoy. (HerbaLand Good News Gummies Peach Passion at Well.ca)
