They DO exist if you know where to look! A guide to vegan, fair trade Halloween treats.

We live in a very rural area and don't get trick-or-treaters, but for those of you who do, or who just like to have Halloween candy around for your own enjoyment, here are some great sources for fair trade, vegan treats!

Halloween orange bites or Halloween peanut butter bites (about 93 pieces in each tub), $33

Dark chocolate scary skulls, 1.28 oz., $3.25 each

70% Dark chocolate bites, $14.99 per half-pound (about 50 pieces)

Vanilla caramels, $10 for 3.5 oz.

Trick or treat chocolates, $25 for 50 pieces

I tried but was not successful in tracking down any non-chocolate treats that are made under fair trade conditions using only fair trade sugar. If you know of any, please let me know!

And if you need a reminder about why you might not want to buy from the big companies (like evil Hersheys), please check out my earlier write-up about fair trade chocolates, and this recent update on what kind of progress the mainstream chocolate companies are making towards their promised goals of eliminating child slavery from their operations. (I'll give you a hint - not much.)
