Scary movies, pumpkin carving & vegan-friendly candy.

Let's do Halloween right this year! While a lot of your favorite everyday candies are automatically vegan, why not be sure and support those companies dedicated to producing candy beyond the no-cow milk policy?


The main culprit for a lot of sugary treats is gelatin, which is made from the boiled ligaments, tendons, and bones of cows and pigs. Other ingredients to look out for include carmine, a deep red pigment made from insects and confectioner's glaze that's made from bug secretions. And if you see sugar listed as one of the ingredients, it's likely made with bone char, which is yes, charred animal bones. Here are the main things to avoid: butter, butterfat, carmine, castoreum, confectioner's glaze, eggs, gelatin, honey, I.cysteine, milk, milk powder and whey.



But don't fret. There are plenty of tasty treats to indulge in and hand out to your trick or treaters that are insect and animal-free.


Here's a list of 20 popular picks that are completely animal-free:


1) Nerds

2) Jolly Ranchers

3) Airheads

4) Sour Patch Kids

5) Atomic Fireballs

6) Skittles

7) Individually wrapped Strawberry Twizzlers

8) Fun Dip

10) Annie's Bunny Fruit Snacks

11) Annie's Organic Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites

12) Oreo Minis
