15 Trick-or-Treat Candy Alternatives for Halloween

October 31st is just around the corner, and you know what that means… CANDY – lots and lots of candy! When it comes to Halloween, it is almost inevitable that kids are going to be consuming sugary treats.  They get it at school parties, doctor appointments, grandma’s house and just about anywhere they go. After a while (though they'd never admit it) it might be a case of too many sweets.
