Sure, there are vegan finds at Target and other grocers, but if you’re already getting your groceries and toilet paper delivered, might as well throw in a bag (or five) of vegan Halloween candy to avoid the mad dash come October 30 (or even the morning of Halloween itself). With these unique, sweet vegan treats, you’ll also establish your home as the house to haunt. Unless you live in a particularly vegan-populated neighborhood, it’s likely that your candy bowl will have the best (and only) dedicated vegan candy options. Besides, kids can only eat so much candy corn and fun-sized Hershey’s bars. Here are 10 vegan Halloween candies to add to your virtual shopping cart. 



Jackpot. We’ve seen this vegan-friendly candy company lining the end-of-the-aisle displays at Whole Foods, but online, you can buy in bulk. We highly recommend the Vegan Variety pack—or maybe two of them, if you’re expecting a large trick-or-treating crowd. The pack features fun-sized versions of UNREAL’s nut butter cups, coconut-filled chocolate bars (such as Mounds), and two variations of chocolate gems (such as M&Ms).

2 Raisels

Handing out raisins on Halloween is nearly as bad as handing out pencils—unless, however, the raisins are coated in a sweet syrup or sour powder. For those who just don’t believe that dried fruit is nature’s candy, adding a bit of unexpected flavor is just what they need to become a raisin-lover. These mini-packages of golden raisins come in lightly sweet flavors such as Tropical and Raspberry; super sour options like Orange Burst, Lemon Blast, and Watermelon Shock; and a spicy Chili Limon Pineapple Fiesta variety. Even the raisin-averse will ask if they can take two.

Some people are just not candy people. Offer up a baked good, however, and their dopamine levels rise just thinking about the joy of that first bite. These chickpea-based blondies and brownies are the equivalent of a full-sized candy bar, and thanks to the single-serve packaging, they offer a solution to passing out vegan baked goods on Halloween. Buy a box of each flavor and dole them out to the kids with the most creative costumes.
