Welcome to another round of sp00ky szn, my friends. If you’re planning to hand out candy to trick-or-treaters this year—or just hosting a party and need some sweet treats for guests to snack on—well, mind if we share our recs? Halloween candy doesn’t need to be something you stress over, but with allergies on the rise (and no, we’re not talking about the seasonal kind that makes you sneeze from grass), it’s worth making a point to hand out nut-free Halloween candy this year.
Luckily, there’s plenty of tree nut- and peanut-free Halloween candy to choose from. Many classic Halloween candies happen to be nut-free, while newer brands have also made a point to create choices that are free of nuts and other allergens. You just need to know which ones to look for—and believe us, it can be a real feat to hunt those down. That’s why we’re here to help and keep you from reading the back of candy bags in the name of sp00oky szn!!
Because, yes, you could spend a good chunk of time in supermarket aisles, hoping to find out if the candy was produced in a facility with nuts or not. Or you could just scroll through and see our list of nut-free candy below.
We rounded up 18 popular nut-free Halloween snack options, plus where you can get them on Amazon (and save yourself a trip to the store, all-together).
