Trick or Treats?

Trick or Treats

Many people want to stay healthy during the Halloween candy season, but have a difficult time finding good options that satisfy their sweet tooth and don’t break the bank. Preferably, we would all be eating organic, low sugar, preservative and flavoring free treats for Halloween, but this eliminates most easily available candies. I’ve provided a handy list of good, better, and best options for Halloween candy that will minimize negative health effects.  Another great option is to hand out homemade goodies like these Easy Chocolate Almond Butter Cups by PaleOMG.

  • Hershey’s Kisses, Milk Chocolate

Better
