31 Halloween Snacks that Aren’t Candy


Halloween’s almost here and that means SUGAR, SUGAR, and more SUGAR. But just because that’s the norm, doesn’t mean you have to have a strictly-candy diet. Here are a handful of Halloween snacks that aren’t candy…

They’re silly. They’re easy to make. And best of all, they’re allergen-free. No nuts, no gluten, no soy…nada. Just green apples, sunflower butter, sunflower seeds, a strawberry tongue, and a batch of homemade googly eyes (this is always optional but 100% recommended).
