Aloha Superfood Chocolate

It’s magic, as far as we can tell, how Aloha crams an entire serving of fruits and vegetables into every bar, plus the usual antioxidant benefits of chocolate (10 times the amount in goji berries, in fact). The cacao is fair trade and organic, and the bars are sweetened only with coconut sugar, which has a lower glycemic index so don’t worry about sugar spikes. Oh, and they’re also gluten, soy and dairy-free, and there’s nothing artificial in their delicious flavors, either. $49 for six full-size bars

TruJoy Organic Fruit Chews

Unlike Starburst, there is no corn syrup, artificial flavors or dyes (they’re colored with turmeric and veggie juices) in these vitamin C-packed chewy candies. They also tick most every health-conscious box: certified organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, vegan, cholesterol-free, and 1 percent of every purchase is donated to environmental causes. Each bag contains a mix of cherry, lemon, orange and strawberry flavors. $1.95 for a 20-piece bag

Justin’s Organic Mini Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

Justin’s all-natural peanut butter cups have been the grown-up version of Reese's for years. This year, they've finally shrunk them down to the bite-size versions if you like better chocolate-to-peanut ratio. You won’t find the cocoa butter replacement PGPR in these cups, which use organic ingredients and non-hydrogenated palm fruit oil. The gluten-free, vegan treats are also available in dark (as minis) and white chocolate (as full-size cups). $36.82 for six packages (4.7 ounces)


SunCups Sunflower Butter Cups

Peanut butter cups just might be the king of the candy world, but not for those allergic to peanuts. SunCups makes theirs with roasted sunflower seed butter, and frankly they taste like a sophisticated version of Reese’s (maybe it’s the hint of sea salt). They’re also gluten-free, made without eggs, soy or corn syrup, and come in dark and milk chocolate varieties. $20 for 24 one-cup packs

Surf SweetsOrganic Spring Mix Jelly Beans

These jelly beans are not only free of artificial colors, flavorings and corn syrup, they are made with organic fruit juice. They’re also tastier than what’s glutting all the supermarket shelves, in flavors like tropical punch, pineapple and watermelon (you may not even recognize the natural version!) $4.99 for an 8-ounce bag

Righteously Raw Cacao Bite Size

No sugar, preservatives, dairy or emulsifiers — these bars contain only the raw power of chocolate. There's the subtly flavored Rose bar, whose purple color comes from raspberries and beets,and Synergy Spice is packed with enough energy-boosting ingredients (cinnamon, lucuma, cayenne) to keep partying all night. They're available as bars or single-serving packs, if you're willing to part with them for trick-or-treaters. $24.25 for 32 squares
