I love my candy (chocolate addict is an understatement), but I do become worried about the health factors. There is a way to enjoy sweets- especially around Halloween- that satisfy your cravings and are better for your body. Here is my list of ~healthier~ candy brands that you can enjoy this holiday: 

1) Behave 

Behave's Sweet and Sour Gummy Bears, www.eatbehave.com, $30, Shop Now 

This brand’s sweet and sour candy is exactly what you need this Halloween. Behave is reinventing candy with low sugar, low net carbs, and all natural sweets. The company’s debut product- sweet and sour gummy bears- are composed of only 3g of sugar, 90 calories and 6g net carbs. With these unexpected and gluten-free flavors like lychee, passionfruit, and raspberry, you are in for a real treat. This brand also brought in celebrity chef, Elizabeth Falkner, to create a culinary experience we can all enjoy.

2) Unreal 

Unreal's Milk Chocolate Gems, www.shop.getunreal.com, $6, Shop Now

This chocolate is unreal indeed. Many of the options are gluten-free, non-gmo, and sweetened without corn syrup or sugar alcohols. This candy packs double the flavor with significantly less of the sugar. The company even delivers right to your doorstep with 1-3 day free delivery on orders over $49. Some of my favorites include: the milk chocolate gems, the vegan variety pack, and the dark chocolate peanut butter cups

3) Smart Sweets 

Smart Sweet's Gummy Worms, www.smartsweets.com, $40, Shop Now

You would be ~smart~ to try out this brand for Halloween. Smart Sweets just created new gummy worms specifically for spooky season. With 81% less sugar than other gummy worms and only 4 grams of sugar in the entire bag, this would be a wise choice. The flavors in this 12-pack include: blue raspberry + cherry, pink lemonade + peach, and strawberry + pineapple. Sounds like a tropical vacation in one snack. Smart Sweets also offers fruity gummy bears, sour blast buddies, sourmelon bites and more. Through their #kicksugar movement, the company has created plant-based products.

4) YumEarth 

YumEarth's Organic Candy Corn, www.yumearth.com, $7, Shop Now

There is no doubt that this brand is full of the ~yumminess~ you want. YumEarth creates allergy friendly treats with no artificial dyes and are all organic and non-gmo. The company released organic candy corn, gummy fruits, and lollipops just in time for your Halloween cravings. One of their top treats are organic giggles, which are perfect for individuals that enjoy fruity candies. These chewy candy bites have flavors like green apple, lemon, orange, strawberry, and grape. 

5) Hu Kitchen

Hu Kitchen's Hazelnut Butter Bar, www.hukitchen.com, $29, Shop Now

Of course I had to end this list with one more chocolate brand. Hu dark chocolate has no sugar alcohols, refined sugar, cane sugar, palm oil, dairy, gluten, emulsifiers, or soy lecithin. *Takes a deep breath.* With their slogan, Get Back to HUman, all of the ingredients are never spooky. This brand is known for their 4-pack Hazelnut Butter bar, their 4-pack Almond Butter + Puffed Quinoa bar, and their 4-pack Cashew Butter + Vanilla Bean bar.  My love for this brand and dark chocolate is only increasing.

You cannot go wrong with any of these five candy brands for Halloween. The healthier versions of your favorite candies allows you too indulge and feel good about it afterwards. No tricks- just treats this holiday!
