1. Put fair in the scare!
If you are like us, you love Halloween and want it to be as fun, creepy and scary as possible. But not when it comes to how human and non-human animals are treated!
We want people to buy candy that is vegan (free of animal suffering), union (making sure the workers have some rights) and, of course, any chocolate should be free of child or slave labor.
So if you want to buy Halloween candy, check out the following brands:
Mike & Ike
Please also use our chocolate list:
(The list is updated regularly.)
Help take the scary out of Halloween candy!
