Who doesn’t want to have the coolest house on the block this Halloween? So to make yours memorable try these Halloween candy alternatives. Not only will they be a hit with the neighborhood kids, their parents will love you too!
Sweet Treats that Aren’t Candy
There are a number of non-candy treat alternatives to tempt the little trick-or-treaters in your neighborhood:
- Chocolate covered pretzels
- Yogurt covered raisins
- Mini muffins
- Fruit snacks
Many of these sweet treats are available in snack-size packages that can be purchased at your local bulk wholesaler. Why not mix up a few of these packages and put them together in a holiday themed bag?
Delicious and Nutritious Treats
Sweet doesn’t have to mean loads of extra sugar. Some sweet treats can also
offer real nutrition, like protein or a serving of whole grains. For healthier Halloween treats, think:
- Mini granola bars
- Fruit and cereal bars
- Homemade no-bake energy bites
- Trail mix
Again, like Halloween candy, many of these treats are available in individually-wrapped servings, but making your own treat bags is pretty simple, too.
There’s no law that says all Halloween treats need to be edible, so here are some non-food alternatives that your neighborhood kids will love:
- Pens, pencils and erasers with fun designs
- Party horns/noisemakers (warning: the neighborhood kids’ parents may not like these so much)
A trip to your local dollar store may give you hundreds of other ideas for non-candy treats that don’t break the bank.
No matter what you’re handing out or hoping to get in your treat bag, have a safe and fun Halloween!
