Happy Halloweeen! We are pumped to celebrate the spooky holiday. And while Oct. 31 is very much about skimpy outfits and crazy costume parties, we haven’t forgotten about the most important part: the candy. When we were younger, there was nothing better than dumping out our pillowcases after a long night of trick-or-treating to see our bounties, trade with our friends and stuff our faces until we crashed from our sugar high. As candy corn and Reese’s cups floated by in our dreams, we knew Halloween was the best.
But are annual candy comas a habit you should bring into your adult life? Despite the fact that Americans consume about 24 pounds of candy per person per year, the answer is a resounding “no.” With all the new information coming out about the adverse effects of sugar, eating too much Halloween candy is definitely something we should avoid. That doesn’t mean, however, that you have to give up on your treats entirely. Here are some healthy homemade alternatives to satisfy your sweet tooth.
