Buying Allergy-aware Halloween Candy

October 2, 2013

I love giving out candy at Halloween. Of course, I admire those people who give out in-edible treats like stickers and pencils. It’s a great way to point kids to being healthy, and you don’t have to worry about any kids with allergies or diabetes. But I will always give out candy, including candy that Joseph is allergic to. However, the past couple years, I have  made sure to have a variety of things in the bowl and let the kids pick what they want. Then if they want the nut-laden Snickers, they can have it. If they are allergic to (or just don’t like)  chocolate, then I have options for them too. Here are a few allergy-friendly options to put in candy bowls.

  • Gummy bears
  • Smarties
  • Dum dum lollipops
  • Starburst
  • Skittles
  • Pixie sticks
  • Fruit snacks
  • Candy corn
  • Jolly Ranchers
  • Jelly beans
  • Swedish Fish
  • Sour Patch Kids
  • Laffy Taffy
  • Sweet Tarts
  • Nerds
  • Bottle Caps
  • Mike and Ike
  • Dots

Disclaimer: be sure to read your own labels to make sure it fits your comfort level.

Anyone have any favorite allergy-free candies that I missed?
