There’s no need to harm our animal friends while we celebrate a spooktacular Halloween! There are tons of ‘accidentally’ vegan Halloween candy options out there (like Air Heads, Smarties, Dots, and beyond).
But if you want to step up your game this year, you can find many trick-or-treat friendly Halloween treats that are specifically made to be vegan (and often more natural, too)!
Note that all of the companies listed above offer vegan options, but they are not all vegan companies, so be sure to always check the labels for animal products! Also, beware that not all chocolate is created equal. In fact, some chocolate—even vegan chocolate—is produced using child slavery and environmentally harmful palm oil. And finally, when it comes to finding ‘accidentally’ vegan candy, look out for these animal ingredients that commonly make their way into candy:

You can find a very comprehensive list of vegan Halloween candies over at VegNews, and new options are coming to life every year, so keep an eye out! Happy Halloween!
