Boo! Didn’t mean to scare you, but now that summer is over Halloween isn’t too far away.  The temperatures are dropping and pumpkins are popping up everywhere. This Halloween don’t be just the coolest house in the neighborhood, be the healthiest. LuckyVitamin has a great selection of candy made with organic, non-GMO ingredients to help you stand out from the rest of the houses on the block.

Many of the candy ingredients on the market are made with artificial dyes, food coloring agents, artificial flavors and other ingredients that can throw off your children’s nervous system. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), one of these ingredients, partially hydrogenated vegetable oil, is no longer “generally recognized as safe” and should eventually be phased out of the production of food. A great health benefit to our all-natural sweet treats is that they do not contain hydrogenated oils.

Chocolate is a staple of Halloween. LuckyVitamin carries top selling delicious treats like Chocolove Mini Organic Chocolate Bars that come in flavors like Dark Chocolate, Raspberry, Orange Peel, and Toffee Almond.  Another delectable treat you will find is the Lara Bar Jocalat Chocolate Mint Bar. This yummy bar is non-GMO, organic, and free of artificial calories, dairy, gluten, and preservatives.

Are you worried about not having Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups in your candy bucket this fall? Don’t worry; LuckyVitamin has you covered with Justin’s Nut Butter Peanut Butter Cups. Not only is this enjoyable candy organic, it is also free of dairy and gluten.  Now it wouldn’t be Halloween without M&M’s; however, a tasty and healthier alternative is SunSpire Sun Drop Original Chocolate Candies.  These candies are organic, vegetarian, and free of preservatives, trans fat, and artificial flavors. On top of all that they are also a quality fare trade product.

Other great alternatives to satisfying that sweet tooth with include Yummy Earth Root beer candy drops, Surf Sweets All Natural Gummy Bears , Yummy Earth’s Organic Gummy Bears and All Natural Lollipops. This Halloween don’t be frightened by the candy on you super market shelves; shop LuckyVitamin for all natural and organic candy to hand out to those witches, goblins, princesses and super heroes.
