For the past few years, I’ve tried to find sustainable candy choices that are affordable to hand out on Halloween. There aren’t many choices if you’re trying to treat the entire neighborhood without spending a small fortune. One choice that pops up year after year is Endangered Species Halloween Treats.
These treats are bite-sized squares of .35 chocolate that is gluten-free, vegan, kosher and non-GMO. Endangered Species sources its cacao from small family owned properties and they engage in ethical trade that provides humane working conditions and a fair price for the cacao. This is chocolate that you can feel good handing out to the kids that come knocking on your door.
Right now, a bag of 24 dark or milk chocolate Halloween treats sells for $6.99 and a bag of 160 pieces sells for $44.99. However, Endangered Species is offering a special promo-code right now. This is from the email they sent me.
Enter coupon code HLWN15 at checkout and save 15 percent off milk and dark chocolate Halloween treats; place your order by Monday, Oct. 22 to ensure delivery before Halloween night!
I think it’s great to carry your sustainable ethics into holiday festivities, and these treats are a way to do it while still giving kids what they like to get in their trick-or-treat bags — really good candy — and not breaking your budget.
