Vote: Are Halloween Candy Alternatives the Next Big Thing?

By Tonka Dobreva 10.29.2017 interact


Move over candy! A new Halloween trend is taking the “treat” out of “trick-or-treat” and replacing it with fun alternatives to sweets. Use your creativity and fill up those candy bowls with stickers, glow sticks, mini skeletons, bats, spiders, vampire fangs, even cans of Play-Doh. They may not be as sweet as a piece of candy, but sure last longer — and could be more fun.

    I think yes because kids with gluten allergy or allergys at all can still have fun and enjoy Halloween, but I also say no because the kids that dont have allergys may still want there candy. But for me I love me some Halloween candy!! Thank You Channel One you guys are amazing!

      Halloween is about Candy. They can still have fun, but just not eat candy. Why take the fun away from other kids for a few of the unfortunate.
