Ditch the Candy This Halloween
When it comes to Halloween, maybe nothing tops the California homeowner who answers the door bearing an oversize tray. He offers an unsuspecting child a series of Lemony Snicket-worthy ‘treats’ (think tomato paste, olives, and canned sardines). With each refusal, he acts confused. Meanwhile, older siblings giggle in the dark a few feet away. But he never fails to bring out a second tray, brimming over with scrumptious treats. The kids are thrilled. Or maybe relieved. We’re not 100% sure.
Everyone wants to offer treats that are thoughtful and fun – and most of all, tasty. And every year more people want to get away from all that candy.
You know the drill: If you buy your own favorite candy, anything left over is going directly into your belly within a few days. Maybe hours. If you buy something you don’t like, you’re stuck with leftovers no one will touch (we won’t get into the love-it-or-hate-it candy corn controversy, as we want to stay in your good graces).
You want to do something different. Sure, you could give out a non-food item like a bubble pop sensory toy or colorful pencil, but there’s something about Halloween that just screams for something sweet.
Have no fear: we at Fruit for Thought have scared up tasty treats for you! Our single-serve packages make the perfect Halloween treat. In fact, many parents are surprised to see that their kids love our unsweetened organic dried mango or dried pineapple as much as a candy bar!
Can’t decide which fruit to get? There’s no need to limit yourself to just one – why not pick up our variety pack? It’s chock full of organic mango, pineapple, and cherries, and sure to please.
By the way, there’s no trickery here: we don’t add a thing to our dried fruit – no spooky artificial colors, no creepy preservatives. That would be horrifying any day of the year! And the sweetness you taste is the natural sugar present in the fruit – why would we mask it with added sugar? It’s already perfect.
