Halloween is just around the corner and theres nothing scarier than the candy that will be passed out that spooky Friday night. Weird which craft candy filled with food dyes that are linked to ADHD, not to mention genetically engineered ingredients that have never been throughly tested for the safety in humans, and freaky preservatives, all wrapped in the candy we will be receiving Halloween night. I don't know about you all but it seems to me like they are trying to poison us with their sweet treats, to be honest this candy can be scarier than even the most well thought out costume. Luckily, I found 5 yummy, safe and healthy candies that are safe to share and wont scare you, and also happen to be some of my personal favorites.
Alter Eco Chocolates have the most amazing chocolate wrappers. There truffles are wrapped in all compostable and recyclable products, making it guilt free for us to indulge in our sweets. Once you are done with your truffle the wrapper will literally disenagrate into the earth. If you don't believe me, see for yourself HERE. They also work directly with small scale farmers to all the ingredients needed for the making of their truffles. There goal is to create a system that benefits both us and everyone involved.
The cocoa is sourced from the Rainforest Alliance Certified farms, meaning precious forests aren't leveled to bring you this delicious treat. Also, with every purchase you make, they donate 10% of their profits to one of their partner organizations that supports species conservation, habitat preservation and humanitarian efforts.
With a son who has food restrictions and a gluten intolerence, Hanson Watkin set out to develop allergy friendly gourmet candies that taste great!

These chemical-free organic lollies are popular because the makers use Israeli sugar beets instead of U.S. genetically modified corn and coloring from fake food dyes. May I add that these lollies are just delicious.
