Spooky season is here once again and that means it’s time to break out the candy for Halloween. Whether young or old, chocoholics or sweet tooths, we’ve searched beyond the crypt to deliver a little something for everyone. Here’s a list of plant-based and vegan-friendly treats that the whole neighbourhood can enjoy. Remember, sharing is caring!
Plant-based & Vegan Candy
We’ve complied a list of vegan-friendly candy for plant-based trick-or-treaters that are free from animal-derived ingredients. As always, be sure to double check for gelatin, colourings, any added eggs, milk or other animal or insect-based ingredients when buying.
Pana Organic Chocolate: Dairy-free, organic and delicious. The range includes favourites hazelnut, salted caramel, mint, raspberry and more. Be sure to check out their ice-creams too!
Red Vines: Strap in for some delicious licorice (say that ten times fast). These twists are made without animal ingredients and are a classic addition to any candy bag.
Kresho: Feeling generous or looking to impress? Kresho bar’s are a mouth-watering chocolate-covered almond nougat bar that is 100% vegan and 100% yummy.
Dandies: Perfectly pillowy marshmallows that are also free from gelatin, gluten, artificial flavours and colouring.
Enjoy Life Chocolate Minis: Dairy-free, nut-free, gluten-free and soy-free chocolates that are made with rice milk and the perfect size for sharing amongst fellow ghouls!
