Paleo Halloween Candy to Buy
I get it, sometimes you don't want to make your own candy but still want to enjoy a treat. Or, you plan on passing out paleo friendly candy on Halloween. Here are some of my favorite paleo approved treats to buy:
- Hu Hunks Chocolate Covered Almonds - almonds covered in dark chocolate
- Hu Gems Minty Chocolate Chips - paleo mint chocolate chips
- Cocomels Coconut Milk Caramels - mini caramels made with coconut milk
- That's It Fruit Bars - bars made with dried fruit and no added sugar
- Evolved Coconut Butter Cups - dark chocolate with a coconut butter filling
- Unreal Dark Chocolate Coconut Bars - coconut bars covered in dark chocolate (note: there is a bit of cane sugar in the chocolate, but a small amount and I still consider this paleo friendly)
Depending on the ingredients in the candy, it can be allowed in moderation on a paleo diet. All of the above recipes are paleo, but should still be considered a treat rather than an everyday occurrence.
There are many paleo approved treats that can be enjoyed or given out on Halloween. Here are my top picks: Hu Hunks Chocolate Covered Almonds, Hu Gems Minty Chocolate Chips, Cocomels Coconut Milk Caramels, That's It Fruit Bars, Evolved Coconut Butter Cups, Unreal Dark Chocolate Coconut Bars.
