Whether it's a chocolate peanut butter cup, a fruit chew, or a classic gumball, everyone loves their sweet treats! Unfortunately, a lot of candies on the market are made with questionable, genetically-modified ingredients and artificial flavors and colorings.
Fortunately, there are a BUNCH of amazing people + companies that have created super yummy candies with safe, high-quality ingredients, as well as options for vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, and soy-free eaters. So this October 31st, fill your kiddies' pillow cases + Halloween bags with these Philosophie-approved chocolatey, coconutty, + fruity treats!
And if you like to create your own spooky treats, bake these Simple 6-Ingredient Raw Brownies (+ use pumpkin cookie cutters) OR pop out these Berry Bliss Philosopops (+ wrap the tops with white fabric squares, tie orange and black ribbon right below the pops, and stick on googly eyes to create Ghost Pops)!
