A non-GMO option that’s also fairtrade, the combination of rich dark chocolate and good-for-you pumpkin seeds, almonds, or coconut makes this Halloween treat higher in zinc, iron, and fiber than a lot of the other choices out there. It comes in 4.7 OZ (133 g) bags.
Coming from a Canadian brand based in the Gatineau-Ottawa region, their dark chocolate comes in bars of 100g designed to just melt in your mouth. You can choose between Bittersweet (71% Cacao), Extra Dark (80% Cacao), Intensely Dark (88% Cacao), Nightfall (90% Cacao) or the minis format. The mini bite-size pieces are sold in counter dispensers of 675g (150 units of 4.g). They’re certified fairtrade, organic, and kosher. They’re also gluten-free, soy lecithin-free, and vegan.
These bars come in a variety of flavours: Cocoa Coconut, Strawberry Macadamia, Vanilla Almond, Double Chocolate, Chocolate Mint, Raspberry Lemon, Cinnamon Pecan, and Blueberry Cashew. Made with an almond flour base, 4g of net carbs, 7g of fiber, and 5g or more of protein, these bars make the perfect guilt-free snack. What’s more, each one has only 2g of sugar or less. Keto-certified, gluten-free, non-GMO, and vegan, they’re good for us and they’re good for our planet.
Available in chocolate chip, strawberry, mixed berry, chocolate banana, and apple cinnamon. Each pack has a full serving of hidden vegetables and vitamins A, C, D, E, and B6. They are gluten-free, nut-free, and non-GMO.
From the field to your snack cupboard, these three farmers offer you yummy roasted green peas. This will be your new favourite snack! Their Pea Pops are bold in flavour, big on crunch, and most of all, you won’t be able to stop until the bag is empty. On top of that, these Pea Pops are peanut & tree nut free, gluten-free, non-GMO, and vegan.
Available in sizes ranging from 150g to 1kg, these snacks are filled with dry-roasted sesame seeds and fairtrade cane sugar bliss. They are vegan, gluten-free, and non-GMO. Can you ask for more?
A healthy Halloween candy alternative for those who love sour gummies, these contain 91% less sugar than other tart gummies, just 3g per bag (50 g). On top of being low sugar and low calorie, the vegan certified buddies are colored with only natural fruit and vegetable juices.
A 336 g variety package, a natural substitute for Fruit Roll-Ups, these are made from real whole fruit (e.g., Strawberry, Wildberry, Raspberry) with no preservatives or additional additives, and are gently baked to preserve the nutrients! As well as being dairy-free, these vegan goodies are also gluten-free, nut-free, and kosher.
Fat-free with no artificial colours, these gummies are the perfect mix of sweet chili heat. That’s right, you’ll find a spicy chili filling hidden beneath the cherry and vanilla cola exterior of each of these spooky skulls. These are only available in 140g bags.
Proudly Canadian, these vegan chocolates are both gluten-free and GMO-free. With fairtrade chocolate that is also certified organic, they’re available in varying chocolate percentages (38% milk, 60% dark, 90% dark) and flavours like banana, raspberry, Himalayan salt, coconut and quinoa, and more.
