Sour Patch Kids

You know, the kid-shaped candies that are sour first, sweet later, and all the while vegan? We are hands down team blue raspberry, but would easily settle for any Sour Patch flavor.

Skittles

Tasting the rainbow as a vegan is pretty simple: eat Skittles, repeat. Whether you’re into the Original red bag, the Wild Berry, or Sour Skittles varieties, this fun holiday is a chance to snag all three.

Twizzlers

Fruity licorice twists might just be our love language. We are always happy to see these vegan, berry licorice minis in our Halloween bag.

Charms Blow Pops

Chewy bubblegum surrounded by a sweet hard shell? Sign us up! It’s practically two candies in one. Not a lollipop person? Try the Blow Pop Minis—it’s all the candy goodness without the stick.

Smarties

Satisfy your sweet tooth with the taste of nostalgia. All Smarties candies are vegan, including Tropical Smarties. BRB—adding these to our trick-or-treat candy list!

Now and Later

Opt for the original Now and Laters and you are in for a vegan treat. Steer clear of the Now and Later Chewies and Splits as those contain egg.

Now and Later

Fun Dip

Lick, dip, repeat. This one is an instant throwback to childhood—sticky Halloween night fingers and all. With sweet dipping flavors like RazzApple Magic, what’s not to love?

Airheads

Available in a variety of fruity flavors, the tangy and chewy Original Airheads are vegan and totally calling our name. Team Watermelon over here!

DOTS

These chewy and fruity gumdrops packed up in a mini cardboard box are a Halloween candy must. Find DOTS in Original, Tropical, and Sour varieties.

Dots

Swedish Fish

The red, fish-shaped chewies are a Halloween staple. These gummy candies can also be found in additional fruity flavors.

Dum Dums

Did you know you can find these mini lollipop treats beyond the bank teller’s desk? Yep! And just in time for our favorite spooky holiday. Cream Soda is our go-to flavor.

Dum Dums

SweeTARTS

Great news! This throwback favorite is totally vegan. Choose the Original SweeTARTS for your trick-or-treating fun as the Ropes and other varieties are not vegan.

Sweetarts

Jolly Rancher

Our mouths aren’t watering, yours are! It’s not like we can blame you on this one. These fruit-flavored candies are a must for Halloween and beyond!
