Skip the apples and granola bars, these healthier Halloween candy options will please even the pickiest of trick-or-treaters.
For kids, Halloween means one thing: CANDY. While we fully embrace the holiday, trick-or-treating and all, most candies have a whole bunch of ingredients we can't pronounce - and that part, we don't love! It's impossible to control what the little ones grab door-to-door, but we do have the choice to keep our houses stocked with better, healthier Halloween candy options for parties and gatherings. Luckily for us, there's one place we always turn to study the ingredient lists for us and help us make healthier choices: Thrive Market!
In addition to after-school snacks and cleaning products that we love, Thrive Market is loaded with clean candy picks that are perfect for the season! Naturally sweetened, no crazy ingredients, and no protest from the little ones - that's a Halloween tradition we can fully get behind.
Not only do they carry tons of seasonal, healthier Halloween candy options, but they also happened to have just rolled out a new feature we're loving for making healthier choices: a barcode scanner on their app! Just download the Thrive Market app on your phone, scan a barcode on any item at the grocery store or in your pantry, and they'll give you all the nutritional info you need along with product recs and price-matches. This comes in especially handy with Halloween candy- just scan the brand name your kids (or you!) love - and the app will provide healthier options. Case in point: these Organic Delish Fish that fulfill every bit of our Swedish Fish obsession! Essentially, they have one more tool that takes even more guesswork out of finding better, healthier alternatives to products - just another reason to love 'em!
Now here, thanks to Thrive Market, we found 8 healthier Halloween candy brands we're loving this year.
