Our Favorite Halloween Candy Finds That are Tasty and All-Natural

We are big believers in choosing treats to truly enjoy and don’t feel diet-y. This goes for any time of year, and certainly includes holidays like Halloween. So this roundup isn’t about calories, fat, or sugar grams, but about candy having quality ingredients and being free from as many artificial ingredients and additives as possible. Oh, and they taste REALLY GOOD. Here are 10 of our favorite Halloween candy choices that don’t include a lot of artificial ingredients, colors, or flavors, and instead have ingredients you’d actually find in your kitchen.

YumEarth Organic Fruit Lollipops

You’d be hard-pressed not to find a flavor you love from this brand — they have everything from sour fruit flavors to classic strawberry to hot chili mango! They get their vivid colors from fruit and veggie concentrates.

YumEarth Organic Sour Twists

Love a good sweet and sour chewy candy? So do we! These give you a mouthful of both sweet and sour flavors and are colored with fruits, veggies, and spices.

Justin’s Mini Peanut Butter Cups

If you’ve had these before then you are likely already a major fan. They combine a super smooth, peanut butter center with high quality milk chocolate (they also come in a dark chocolate variety, too). And that peanut flavor? It comes from being packed with real peanuts!

Equal Exchange Chocolate Mini’s

These mini chocolate bars come in milk chocolate and dark chocolate. The company is dedicated to working with Fair Trade cooperatives to ensure workers are paid a fair wage for their labor. They even have printable cards that educate about Fair Trade that you can hand out to trick-or-treaters!

Alter Eco Dark Mint Truffles

These super creamy truffles combine the tough to beat combination of mint filling and dark chocolate.

Glee Gum, Gum Pops

Turmeric, chlorophyll, and beet juice give these bubblegum-filled lollipops their color. They come in assorted flavors and the company ensures that the ingredients are harvested sustainably.

Wholesome Brand Organic Fruit Chews

If you love chewy fruit flavored candy, then these will not disappoint. They’re individually wrapped and easy to hand out to all the goblins in your neighborhood, and all of the pretty colors in these fruit chews come from fruit or veggie juices.

Surf Sweets Organic Jelly Beans

Colored with fruit extracts and spices, these jelly beans come in six flavors. The individually wrapped bags are the perfect size for trick-or-treaters.

Cocomels Original Coconut Milk Caramels

No added colors or flavors to be found in these caramels. Plus, they’re made with coconut milk instead of dairy, so even people with a dairy intolerance/allergy can enjoy them!

Sunmaid Chocolate Covered Raisins

This classic candy has pretty basic ingredients…raisins and chocolate. The fun-size packets make a great treat for Halloween night and you can usually find them at larger grocery stores and club stores like Sam’s Club or Costco right around Halloween time.

A note from our CEO about COVID-19x

Bumble Bee Seafood Logo

The coronavirus has changed life, as we knew it, forever. Most people will be touched in some way by the pandemic either physically, emotionally or financially. We’ve all heard heart-breaking stories from around the world about lives that have been lost and severe financial hardships caused by the sudden shutdown of so many businesses.

On behalf of all our team members around the globe, we extend our deepest sympathies to all that are struggling through personal challenges, whatever they may be, and we offer our sincerest gratitude to all the heroes who are helping those in need.

We’d also like to add how important it is for everyone to continue to do their part to slow the spread. Physical distancing is critical, and we must all take this seriously. We use the word “physical” because staying away from people in a physical way does not mean we should be neglecting the importance of social interactions, compassion and patience.

We are one of the largest providers of shelf-stable seafood and it is our honor and our responsibility to do our part, in every way we can, to help to keep people fed with affordable, nutritious protein. To that end, we’re continuing to run our factories in the US and Canada while our partners around the world continue to provide supply.

We take great pride in being a “people-first” company, so our decision to continue operations is done with utmost concern for the people making it possible. We’ve enhanced our safety measures to meet or exceed CDC guidelines and we have increased wages in our factories to assist employees dealing with the incremental costs of working and new, unexpected demands on their households.

We also take great pride in producing healthy, nutritious and safe products for our customers. Please know the manufacturing practices we follow year-round protect our both employees and the products they produce. Our facilities have very few people-to-product interactions, all products are sterilized in a high temperature oven and then packaged in highly automated production lines.

Beyond Bumble Bee, we’re continually looking for ways to extend our “people first” approach to make a meaningful impact. With so many people in need, we know this effort is more important than ever. We’re starting by donating more than $1 million in product to food banks in both the US and in Canada. And we will be looking for more opportunities to make a positive difference in the days to come.

Finally, I want to thank you, our loyal and new customers, for your support. We hope you find the recipes on our website helpful and easy to prepare. I also want to send a sincere thank you to our Bumble Bee Team and our valued supply partners around the world for their tireless efforts, particularly those working in sales, manufacturing, distribution and all our support roles, ensuring we can keep store and pantry shelves stocked.

Please continue to do your part to keep yourselves and your families safe during this truly unprecedented time.

With Gratitude,
Jan
CEO, Bumble Bee Seafoods
