Every year, we make life changes — whether or not we realize it. And if you've decided to make a big dietary change this year, you might be wondering what Halloween candy is vegan. Sometimes, it's a little tough to tell.
Vegans are slightly different than standard vegetarians. While both stay away from meat (like beef, chicken, and pork) vegans also stay away from products created by animals. That means that eggs, milk, and butter are off the table. Since it's often a little tough to figure out how specific candies are made, new vegans might be a little curious as to what is safe and what needs to be donated to a friend or family member.
Now, a little bit of bad news. Vegans should probably stay away from chocolate fun-sized bars that many homes dish out. While chocolate itself in its pure form is vegan, it often gets processed a bunch while being formed into the Halloween goodies you love. Of course, companies have made chocolate candies that fit vegan restrictions, but let's face it — you probably won't see them if your or your child is going door-to-door. According to UrbanVegan, dark chocolate is the most vegan-friendly type. The least vegan-friendly is milk chocolate — but you probably could have guessed that thanks to the name itself.
That said, here are a few treats that are totally fine to enjoy.
