Handing out eco-friendly Halloween candy and other edibles seems like a good plan (if you’re rich). However, those bulk bags of candy at the store cost SO much less than green treats and when you’ve got 80+ trick-or-treaters arriving on Halloween night, it just seems insane to pay a $1 or more per trick-or-treater.
That said, it’s still doable to hand out greener Halloween treats, even if you’re not rich. Here are some good, less expensive green treats along with a cost break-down so you can see how affordable green Halloween treats can be. The ONLY way I’d pay more than 50¢ per treat is if I saved money on the costume and wasn’t having a party. Then I might splurge a little, but overall, I don’t think it’s necessary to go over 50¢.
25¢ each – Mini Glee Gum Mix.
40¢ each organic honey sticks or the vegan honey stick alternative for 18¢ each –Organic Pomegranate Agave Nectar Sticks. Remember – babies cannot have honey, so be sure to set aside another treat for wee trick-or-treaters.
8¢ each – YummyEarth Organic Lollipops.
35¢ each – Organic Fair Trade Vegan Chocolate Orange Bites.
25¢ or less – Stretch Island Original Fruit Leather – DO NOT buy these online – I placed the link so you could see them, but I know you can get them cheaper at your local grocery store. Most online stores sell these (even in bulk) for about 35¢ each, but I see them at my local grocer on sale for 4 or 6 for $1.00 often.
Yummy Earth Organic Candy Drops in various flavors, like…
46¢ each – Franny’s Organic Select Raisins – personally I find raisins super dull, and likely would not pass these out at Halloween. However, I know some kids who love them… so, to each his own.
I’ll be back with some less expensive non-edible green Halloween treats soon.
