Spooky Treats Recipe
Alternatives treats to wrapped candy don’t have to be plain! Get creative using Bulk department items to make some snacks that are tasty yet simple. Spooky critters made or dates raisin, goji berries and nuts are a great alternative for those who are looking for alternatives to traditional sweets with processed sugar. Prepare these critters with loved ones or prepare for guests your entertaining using our recipe here.
At Seward Co-op, we go beyond raisins, dental floss and toothbrushes (though we have those, too!) and carry treats from organic, allergy-friendly. Handing out some treats? Consider candies from YumEarth whose mission it is to craft simple sweets without common allergens found in candy. Whether you grab their gummy fruits, pops, or candy corn, you can be assured they can be enjoyed by all.
Trick or treating would not be complete without a bag to gather your goodies. Wanting an upgrade from your pillowcase? Try reusable ChicoBags. They come in festive Halloween designs. Great addition to the family’s Halloween gear so both you and your kids are happy this Halloween.
For us and many of our shoppers, Halloween candy has to be more than sweet. When it comes to chocolate, fair trade certification is one of the easiest ways for our shoppers to know that the cocoa beans used to make it were not farmed using unpaid child labor or by inflicting other human rights abuses. Look for Community Foods logos around the store to support the local, small, cooperative, inclusive and/or sustainable producers that qualify for the program. Community Foods brings an extra level of vetting to our shelves—and helps to tell the story behind our sweet treats so you can feel good about what you put in your basket.
With Community Foods, you can make sure that what you hand out this Halloween not only tastes good but does good, too!
