Fun Alternatives to Giving Out Halloween Candy

Who doesn’t want to have the coolest house on the block this Halloween? So to make yours memorable try these Halloween candy alternatives. Not only will they be a hit with the neighborhood kids, their parents will love you too!

Sweet Treats that Aren’t Candy

There are a number of non-candy treat alternatives to tempt the little trick-or-treaters in your neighborhood:

  • Chocolate covered pretzels
  • Yogurt covered raisins
  • Cookies
  • Mini muffins
  • Fruit snacks

Many of these sweet treats are available in snack-size packages that can be purchased at your local bulk wholesaler. Why not mix up a few of these packages and put them together in a holiday themed bag?

Again, like Halloween candy, many of these treats are available in individually-wrapped servings, but making your own treat bags is pretty simple, too.

Non-Edible Treats

There’s no law that says all Halloween treats need to be edible, so here are some non-food alternatives that your neighborhood kids will love:

  • Stickers
  • Pens, pencils and erasers with fun designs
  • Party horns/noisemakers (warning: the neighborhood kids’ parents may not like these so much)

A trip to your local dollar store may give you hundreds of other ideas for non-candy treats that don’t break the bank.

No matter what you’re handing out or hoping to get in your treat bag, have a safe and fun Halloween!
