11 AWESOME NON-CANDY HALLOWEEN TREATS TO GIVE TRICK-OR-TREATERS

While Halloween is synonymous with candy, not all of us are keen to be the neighborhood sugar dealer come October 31st. In fact, there are TONS reasons to skip the sugar and hand out non-candy Halloween treats to trick-or-treaters.

  • Some kids have serious allergies and other food sensitivities
  • It keeps the sugar and candy out of YOUR house
  • Doesn’t perpetuate type-2 diabetes and childhood obesity
  • Saves $ and time (Amazon sends this stuff straight to your doorstep)
  • Kids love getting fun and novel stuff

One year, I had to buy Halloween candy three times. Yep, you read that right. THREE times. Why? Because my husband and I kept picking at it until suddenly it was October 15th and we had burned through 2 huge bags of Halloween candy.

(I’m willing to bet that most of the Halloween candy bought in September doesn’t make it to Halloween.)

After that year, I decided that we’d better skip the candy. Or else we were gonna have to buy bigger pants.

Plus, as someone concerned about general health and well-being, I wasn’t exactly thrilled with the prospect of peddling candy to the neighborhood. 

So, the following year I hopped on Amazon and found some inexpensive glow bracelets. It took about 1 minute to order and two days later they were on my doorstep.

And when Halloween came, they were a huge hit!!! Kids and parents loved them since they were fun and helped make kids more visible in the dark. 

And guess what? We haven’t passed out candy since!

Ready to ditch the sugar and make life easier?
