5 Best Not Totally Junky Halloween Candies (That Aren't Embarrassing to Hand Out)

Posted By on Tue, Oct 18, 2011 at 12:17 PM

Halloween is just around the corner, and if you're not looking to spook kids with Type 2 Diabetes, or even worse, boxes of raisins, we've tracked down treats that aren't complete garbage, but at least masquerade as it. After all, if you're passing out individually wrapped prunes, you totally deserve to have demons rain toilet paper upon your house of terror!

5. Yummy Earth's Blood Orange Organic Lollipops

Now, these just look delicious. Blood orange lollipops? Break me off a piece of that! The classiest and yummiest lollipop on the block! Which, we know, isn't saying much but still, you could totally serve these to adults. Semi-proudly, even.


4. Mini Glee Gum Mix

This gum is g-d adorable, and a fantastic treat for kids of every age! It's different than the normal trick-or-treat crap, but not in a "choose your favorite penny from grandma's creepy bowl of pennies" way. The bright colors, cute packaging, and kid-friendly flavors make it a natural fit for All Hallow's Eve.

3. Endangered Species Chocolate's Bug Bites

They're organic, fair trade, and come with INSECT TRADING CARDS -- what could be cuter?? I mean, spookier! Actually, the scariest part is the price but hey, they're available in bulk, and it's not such a big price to pay when you consider the fact that no little kids are hurt in the making or eating of it. Halloween deep thoughts!

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
