VIDEO: No Tricks, Just 6 Treats That Totally Crush Conventional Candy

Last Update: September 29, 2022

Oh, that sugar high—it’s cast a euphoric spell over us since the first moment we tasted candy. But now that we’re all grown up, we’ve learned that conventional candy isn’t a treat at all—it’s really more like a dirty trick.

But hey, even when we try to be our healthiest selves, we’re not robots. Most people crave sweets sometimes, and that’s normal. Our bodies do need sugar after all. But instead if giving in to candies with artificial sweeteners and flavors this Halloween, here are some real sweet treats that can satisfy any sugar craving, minus the crash part. They’re not just for adults either—kids will love them too.
