Halloween isn't the same without candy, and there are plenty of options that vegans can enjoy as well. It's so fun to eat Halloween candy while watching a Halloween movie. As a vegan, I don't want to shop for non-vegan Halloween candies to give out to trick or treaters, so you'll find vegan Halloween candy in our candy bowl. This list will help you with what to put in your candy bowl.


Vegan Halloween candy options


1. Airheads

2. Sour Patch Kids

Animal ingredients you want to stay away from


Dairy - this is products from milk from animals, usually mammals.

Gelatin - this is derived from animal parts, like skin, bones, and hooves. It typically comes from pigs and cows. Read what PETA has to say about Gelatin here.

Confectioners Glaze - this is made from secretions of female beetles. It is a hard coating used on many candies, but surprisingly it is not used on Skittles in the US.

Carmine Color - a deep red color obtained from insects.

My favorite items on this list are JJ's Cocomels, Red Vines, and Annie's Fruit Snacks. I prefer things that do not contain artificial colors, so the only Red Vines I eat are the Made Simple ones.
