My sister is obsessed with providing her trick-or-treaters with healthy and eco-friendly candy. Sort of an oxymoron if you ask me, but yikes, she’s right: all that packaging and hydrogenated oils! If you’re looking to offer a moderately healthy alternative, there’s plenty to choose from: Try Glenny’s Organic Brown Rice Marshmallow Treats (available at Stop and Shop) or mini bags of gummy worms from Natural Candy. Looking for something more familiar? Clark Bar has reformulated their recipe to include real milk chocolate and vanilla, and they’re available here, too.
