Trick or treat

The healthiest of health nuts love Halloween candy. It’s fun and conjures thoughts of childhood, crazy costumes and pumpkin carving. All those warm and fuzzies fly out the window once you read almost any traditional candy’s nutritional label, though. Hydrogenated fats? Check. High fructose corn syrup? Check. Not all Halloween candy packs an unhealthy punch, though. The following natural candy distributors carry healthy Halloween candy ideal for trick-or-treaters (or you, for that matter!).
