I received products to try out. No other compensation was given. All opinions are my own.
Who wants a few better-for-you Halloween treats with ingredients that won’t make you scream? Thankfully, companies are listening to what we want for our families. Let me share a few products you can try out this Halloween.
Dandies are the first Non-GMO Project Verified marshmallows on the market. Indistinguishable from their conventional counterparts, these light and fluffy air-puffed balls of fun are made with all-natural ingredients and completely free of gelatin, artificial ingredients, and high fructose corn syrup. Dandies Marshmallows are also free of wheat, gluten and corn, and 100% vegan. I have not had a marshmallow in years, because there is no way I am consuming GMO sugary marshmallows. It is not worth it to me. But these Dandies marshmallows are a great, once-in-awhile treat for my family to roast over the fire or add to a fun recipe, like the picture above.
Instead of passing out candy, what if we passed out fruit to trick-or-treaters and our own children?
These bags of Healthy Munchy contain a low calorie (up to 90), filling serving of 100% fruit crispies, made from nothing but picked in season fresh Fuji apples, pineapples, or bananas that are freeze-dried using a technology that removes moisture but retains nutrients and yields a delicious crunchy texture. Unlike sugary snacks, there are absolutely no additives. Each bag is a great source of dietary fiber as well. There is no need for candy, when you can have a sweet treat that is actually good for you! And what fun packaging!
I see so many parents giving out fruits snacks to their children. The problem is - although they are marketed as fruit, many do not have any type of real fruit in them. Unlike other fruit snacks on the market, Go Organically is made with multiple real fruit purees that taste delicious. This new product is GMO free, gluten free, contains 100% DV vitamin C, is an excellent source of Vitamins A and E, and has a delicious taste and texture. At Go Organically, their mission is simple. They believe fruit snacks should be made with real fruit, and as such, source their ingredients from USDA certified organic fruit to offer you the best, most authentic, and delicious fruit snacks. These are another super easy idea for a treat to pass out to trick-or-treaters or as a treat for your own children.
Besides passing them out to neighborhood kids, here is another great idea. If your kids are going trick-or-treating, you might buy a couple of these products and trade them for the candy they picked up as they went door-to-door. They will love them!
