If you thought your trick-or-treaters couldn’t have any candy since you transitioned to a vegan diet, we have great news for you! There are plenty of natural vegan Halloween candy brands on the market in 2020, and not only are they animal and gelatin-free, they are also organic, non-GMO, and most are gluten free!
Many candies that are considered vegan cannot be confirmed as such, since they contain dyes that have been tested on animals, or the infamous ‘natural flavors’, which could be referring to either plant-based or animal-derived ingredients.
Most mainstream candies, however, contain unquestionable non-vegan ingredients like gelatin (animal skin, bones, and connective tissue), carmine (a cochineal insect’s blood), or even egg protein. In fact, even refined sugar can be considered non-vegan, as it is sometimes refined using bone char.
So, if you want to avoid any mishaps or simply are looking for healthier, more natural options this year, you have come to the right place! Keep reading and discover the best organic, natural vegan Halloween candy brands.
