Is it even Halloween without a pile of candy? Going vegan doesn’t mean missing out on all your favourite treats—there are tons of options for vegan Halloween candy at your go-to grocery store!
Of course, always be sure to double-check the label; you never know when an ingredient will unfortunately be changed to something non-vegan or a new variant won’t be vegan-friendly.
For this post, I’ve stuck to some of the “classics,” the sort of candies you’ll find in any (US) shop’s holiday aisle. Of course, there are plenty of homemade options (we recommend checking out Pinterest for ideas!) or speciality items (like Alexander Chocolate’s vegan products!) for a different sort of treat!
This is one to definitely double-check, though—some varieties contain beeswax!
I’ve always loved the cola and grape “soda!”
Personally, I still hold a grudge about the lime skittle (RIP, old friend). But the grape makes it almost okay!
These were always a favourite when I was in high school—they always take me back to sitting in class!
Smarties were one of my mom’s favourites, so I’d always save her a few packs after trick or treating!
Sour Patch Kids
These are some of my favourites year-round!
I honestly cannot tell you the last time I had fun dip! Halloween just might be the perfect time to splurge.
This is another one that takes me back to high school—teachers would use these as an incentive all the time!
Admit it: at some point in your life you’ve probably been “engaged” thanks to one of these bad boys.
Growing up under an hour from Hershey, I’ve got strong opinions about Twizzlers and their superiority over Red Vines.
Sweet Tarts were never my favourite candy, but they’ve always been a solid option!
In college, I’d occasionally get one of the big packs of these just to have on hand!
Only the fun-sized versions of Laffy Taffy seem to be vegan, so be sure to double-check the label! Banana is by far the best flavour.
Dots are just so cheerful with their bright colours! Being vegan-friendly makes for even more joy.
At this point, I’m not sure I could handle pixy stix! But they’re a staple Halloween candy nevertheless—what kid doesn’t want to suck down some flavoured sugar?
What’s your favourite vegan Halloween candy?
