15 Trick-or-Treat Goodies That Aren’t Candy

Trick-or-treating at Halloween is usually the part kids most look forward to. But while they’re giddily hauling home whole pillowcases of candy on Halloween night, we often forget that we’re letting our kids eat high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavoring, and who knows what else!

No treats at all is obviously less fun, but to ensure the kids on your block get a mixed bag of goodies this year, here are 15 candy free trick-or-treat ideas kids will love.
