trying to decide what candy to give out on Halloween?




how about 2 oldie but goodie vegan options? Chick-O-Sticks (taste kind of like the inside of a Butterfinger Bar, but with a coconut twist) and Peanut Chews (caramel-y chocolate-y peanuts). There are also Mary Janes, old-fashioned peanut butter toffees. Or how about something newer? Did you know that Skittles are no longer made with gelatin? Yay for tasting the rainbow!

Oh peanut chews... where do you get them in NY? I haven't had those for over a year, but I eat so many at once that they are rather dangerous to have any near me at all...

Chic-o-Sticks, Chico-O-Stics....nothing else can compare!

Mary Janes used to be one of my favorite candies! I have never heard of chik o sticks but they sound wonderful.

Gelatin-free skittles?! I didn't know!

no more sad geraniums- I find them at Rite-Aid, and when I'm somewhere with 7-11s (like the DC area, I stock up there)

amey- around here, wegmans sells mini chik-o-sticks in the bulk bins!

chris- I only buy organic fair-trade vegan sugar, but when it comes to packaged foods, I'm way more lenient on the sugar issue. Most of the candy sold in this country has more corn syrup than sugar anyway!
