10 Non-Candy Halloween Treats To Give Out
Let’s face it: candy is the number one thing that kids want when they go to Halloween parties or trick-or-treating. Very few children (and we’d venture to guess none) have ever said that they want somebody to pass out toothbrushes and apples. You already know that kids will get plenty of candy, but some can’t eat it because of food allergies or other medical concerns. They still want to join in the fun of Halloween, though.

They often have baskets and bins full of these kinds of treats that are relatively cheap.
