Halloween candy jar

IMG_3502Perhaps you could say that I’m naturally that kid whose hand never leaves the candy jar.

I love candy; I love it a whole lot but being an adult, I know better than to eat candy whenever I want. That used to be one of my childhood fantasies; eating as much candy as I could afford to buy as an adult. I know some of y’all may have had similar fantasies but I won’t ask.

However, am not fond of Halloween. I think the whole ghostly theme is creepy. We really don’t like the idea of having our munchkins receive candy from random people, and they have food coloring allergies so we do not trick or treat partly due to those concerns.

Of course I let our babies have a little treat here and there. Nope! Donโ€™t think it’s carrot sticks either or perhaps grapes even though the healthy mama in me has thought of doing that too. I’m a good mama and I treat my babies with real candy sometimes. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Anyhow, over the years we have found different kinds of candy that don’t have a bazillion ingredients that our babies can enjoy around this time of the year. You know, when the temptation is literally in our faces at every turn.

Below are some of our favorites:

  1. Yummy Earth Lollipops
  2. Black Truffles
  3. Licorice sticks
  4. Organic candy drops
  5. Dark chocolate candy bar
  6. Surf sweets gummies
  7. Surf sweets organic jelly beans
  8. OCHO organic candy bars
  9. Go organic fruit chews
  10. Cocomels
  11. Theo coconut bites
  12. Vermints organic mints
  13. Candy Corn.

God Bless

  1. You could have started that list with Candy Corn and said no more. I love that stuff. Rarely do I buy it though because my hand would never leave it (except to stuff more into face) until it was gone. Trick-or-Treating is kinda weird. We preach about not taking candy from strangers. Except on Halloween. Then we go knocking door to door begging for candy from strangers…

    1. My husband would probably agree with you on the Candy corn. I think it’s always a challenge for the little ones this time of the year since candy is literally scattered everywhere we go.

  2. I can’t stand the way that Halloween now seems to be an adult holiday, especially with an emphasis on risque outfits. When I was a kid, we went to the neighbors so we always knew what we were getting. It was pretty low key. I was a ghost with two holes I cut in a sheet one time. No purchased anything, just what we could cobble together.
