When your family’s health is of the utmost importance to you, you try to buy organic wherever possible, right? Organic produce, organic cleaning supplies, organic medicine… But what about Halloween candy?
For many families, Halloween is one of the few days a year where sugar highs are expected and candy binges are even encouraged. If you and your family are planning on indulging in the least healthy holiday of the year, you may feel like giving up on your organic lifestyle for the day. But you don’t actually have to! There are a growing number of candy brands providing healthier, organic, non-GMO candies perfect for Halloween.
For lovers of all things sweet, sour, and chewy, Surf Sweets has you covered with everything from sour gummy worms to organic jelly beans. Surf Sweets are made with organic cane sugar, and are free from allergens, artificial colors, and artificial sweeteners like high fructose corn syrup.
2. Ocho Candy
Now that we’ve covered chewy and gummy sweets, what about that other huge candy category, chocolate? Luckily, Ocho Candy fills the gap for healthier candy bars! Ocho chocolate candy bars have a plethora of flavors including caramel, coconut, peanut butter and peppermint! Like Genexa medicines, Ocho’s candy bars are organic, non-GMO, and many are even vegan. More importantly, they’re delicious!
Shout out to one of our blog partners, Summer Lewis, who brought this awesome company to our attention! YumEarth, like the other companies here, makes organic, non-GMO, gluten free candy. But specifically, unlike Surf Sweets which mostly has chewy or gummy sweets, YumEarth also has hard candies including (drum roll) lollipops! Lollipops have been a staple of Halloween for decades, and YumEarth has given them a healthier upgrade.
We also consider YumEarth special because the company started with two dads on a mission to make healthier options for their families and yours – just like Genexa. It just goes to show how healthier, more transparent options are finding success in every market.
While these three companies may not have changed your mind about celebrating Halloween to the fullest (health concerns aside), you now know that you have healthier, safer candy options for you and your families on other days of the year. And for all of your medicine needs, Genexa is here providing a healthier, organic option as well.
