Halloween Treats!

Every year for Halloween we take the boys trick or treating and let them gather up big bags of candy that we don't eat. Then when we get back to the house they trade in their artificially colored, high fructose corn syrup for a Haloween goodie bag. This year there's some seriously good stuff in these bags!

Fast and Furless in Minneapolis had Sjaak's Organic, vegan, fair trade extra dark chocolate bites filled with peanut butter. This is the kind of chocolate where you can really taste the cocoa because it's not gobbed up with tons of sugar. I don't even need to tell you how good these are. It'll just make you cry.

I also picked up some Yummy Earth organic lollipops, a Panda raspberry licorice, a chocolate coconut fair trade Larabar, organic strawberry Stretch Island fruit leather, Endangered Species dark chocolate bite, dark chocolate "earth balls", and some Yummy Earth organic peppermint drops for each boy.
Oh, and there's some for the parents, too!

What do we do with all the unwanted candy? We bring it into the Co-op and give it to our coworkers or sometimes we "regift" it to other trick or treaters who come to our door (along with a little organic chocolate, of course)!

Well, this is it- My 31st Vegan MoFo posting. While I did miss a day or two, I made sure to post extra on a couple of days to make up for it. Yay! I did better than last year!

That's so cool that y'all give organic candy out! If I were trick or treating in the states, I would definitely stop at your house for organic goodies!
