The one thing about Halloween that I didn’t fully grasp before becoming a mom was all the sugar surrounding the holiday. Of course I knew a big orange Jack O Lantern bucket would come home filled with candy on Halloween night after a long evening of Trick or Treating.
What I didn’t realize was that there would be school parties and fall festivals and hay rides and trunk or treats that seem to take up the entire month of October. All of these activities seem to center around candy and treat bags and cupcakes. I don’t mind my kids having treats but 31 days in a row seems a little excessive so I created a list of store bought Halloween snacks that aren’t candy.
Some on this list are healthier than others. I think it is important to remember that these are still treats so it isn’t going to be like giving out carrot sticks but they are an improvement from just pure sugar candies. (And your kids will still like you, not sure about that if you start handing out carrots!)
Store Bought Halloween Snacks That Aren’t Candy
When you need something to take to a school class party, there is not always time to whip up some crafty Pinterest masterpiece. This list of store bought Halloween snacks that aren’t candy provides at least a slightly healthier option for your kiddos and their friends.
Also, since candy has gotten so expensive, some of these make economical treats to hand out on Halloween night to your Trick or Treating crowd. All of these items are individually packaged if you want to pass out on Halloween or if your school requires the treat to be packaged by the manufacturer.
Orange Jello Cup – Draw a Jack O Lantern face on with a sharpie if you want to make it extra Halloweenie
Vanilla Pudding Cup – Draw a Ghost face on with a sharpie
Spookylicious Pop Tart – You can probably buy two boxes and give each kid in the class a 2 pack. Now they have a treat for breakfast! (leave it up to their mom to add some fruit, not your problem!)
The kids will still love these choices and you will feel good about adding some variety to the class goody bag, Halloween Party, or the Trick Or Treat bag.

Non-Food Favor Option
These are a bit more expensive to make so they might not be an option for Trick or Treat handouts if you get a lot of visitors. But they are so super cute for favors, Halloween parties, school parties or to “Boo” your neighbors with kids!
