Happy Vegan Halloween!
Just because you’ve decided to adopt a plant-based lifestyle does not mean that you have to sit out one of the greatest holidays of the year—I’ve pulled together a list of some of the best vegan snacks and candies around! Check out the list below for nostalgic favorites, classic candy staples, and some new things you may not have heard of :-)
I’d love to hear about your favorite vegan treats as well—hit me up in the comments below.
Smarties: As a person that has never liked chocolate (GASP, I know!) I've always leaned heavily on fruit-based candy when Halloweening and holidaying https://amzn.to/2pRUSl5
Cracker Jack Original caramel coated popcorn and peanuts: Can you believe it?!? This nostalgic treat is also vegan. If you have a peanut allergy though, steer clear https://amzn.to/2CGi125
Twizzlers: OK, so I know these are a fruit-based candy but I don't like these either (I'm the worst, right?!) but I know that a bunch of you do. Though, if you have any issues with palm oil you might want to pass on these https://amzn.to/2PCqXZq
Lemonheads: This is a candy that the husband would likely dub "old people candy" but I pay him no mind when choosing my snacks. Be warned that their gummy candies are NOT vegan https://amzn.to/2CGrdn5
Airheads: For those of you who grew up in the 90's I'm sure you'll have fond memories of these. While vegan, they do have that whole palm oil thing happening so be aware https://amzn.to/2CKOKmQ
Gummies, gummies, and more gummies: Squish Candies might just be my new favorite place on the internet. They actually have a vegan candy section on their site! https://www.squishcandies.com/en_us/shop-candy?gift-category=Vegan They even have gift boxes, how cool is that?!?
JJ Sweets Cocomels: If you're not as into fruit-based candy as I am and have cravings for chocolate and caramel then JJ Sweets has got you covered. And, given the amazingly high quality of the ingredients, you don't have to feel guilty for indulging. https://amzn.to/2QEVRA8
Ananda's Marshmallows Confections: Holy marshmallow heaven. Handcrafted in the the UK in some fanciful flavors, these marshmallows are sure to please everyone at your Halloween party. https://www.anandafoods.co.uk/store/c2/Gelatine_Free_Marshmallows.html
Store bought marshmallows: If ordering from the UK is not practical, then take a swing with these store-bought goodies: Dandie's: https://amzn.to/2C8Temq I've used Dandie's several times and have gotten rave reviews. Give them a try! Trader Joe's: They carry their own brand of vegan marshmallows. I've yet to give 'em a whirl but I will likely very soon https://amzn.to/2QJWrwD Suzanne's Specialties creates "Ricemellow Cream" which makes a fantastic accompaniment to peanut butter for an afternoon sandwich as well as any mashmallow treats you can dream up https://amzn.to/2QMlVcV
All the chocolate: If you're a Halloween purist and want none of that fruit-based candy that i like and prefer to stick to the classics—chocolate—then this variety pack of chocolate minis from Enjoy Life are sure to hit the spot https://amzn.to/2EiljKz Another classic are these dark chocolate bars from Newman's Own https://amzn.to/2IPia3r IF you like a bit of sassiness with your chocolate these Chocolove bars might be a good choice for you Orange: https://amzn.to/2EdTX8l Peppermint: https://amzn.to/2QJXsor
Chick-O-Stick: Well, well, if this isn't a nostalgia-filled Halloween candy I don't know what is. We must all have a tub of these for those late night snack attacks. https://amzn.to/2A5t2rk
