It’s almost Halloween! What comes along with it? Candy, of course! If you know us at all, you know we look for quality in everything we consume and use. It holds true in our candy choices too! Luckily, several brands have come out with improved candy options.

Each of these brands make a variety of candies that are made from higher quality ingredients compared to the ingredients of the typical candy on we find on store shelves. Major differences include: no artificial colors (this is a BIG one!), some use different sweeteners (i.e. coconut sugar, stevia, monk fruit), and fewer additives/chemicals. Why are we so excited about the lack of artificial coloring in these candies? While artificial colors are commonly used in processed food products, we should be hesitant of consuming them. This is due to the fact that they are linked to a host of health concerns including cancer, allergies in children, hyperactivity in children, and disruption of the immune system. So, making a simple swap in your candy choices (and other foods) can drastically improve the quality of the food being put into your body! Also, chances are, if the company is taking a step to eliminate artificial colors, they will also pay closer attention to all the other ingredients in their products…win win! So, if you’re like us and want to buy cleaner candy, then these brands are for you!

Many of these candies can be found in stores such as Health Hut, Fresh Thyme, Whole Foods, Target, and Walmart. If they can’t be found in stores, then they can also be ordered online (each website is linked below)!

We hope you enjoy these sweet treats as much as we do!
