Halloween and sweets (or candy if you’re American) go hand in hand. Since the late 1920s, it’s been a tradition for children, and those of us who never grew up, to “trick or treat”.
While social distancing may stop us from celebrating Halloween the same way we’ve done every year since its inception, there’s no reason why you can’t make the most of the haunted day/night with plenty of tasty sweeties.

Frequently asked questions
Most sweets and chocolate bars become less appealing to eat after about a year, since they can change in flavour and texture after this amount of time. But since it’s very low in moisture content and usually high in sugar, candy doesn’t necessarily spoil like other foods. You’ll find that expiration dates on sweets are more about quality and less about food safety.
No, it’s very difficult for hard candy to go bad. But it can start to lose taste and change texture after a year, even when stored in a cool, dry place.
Ah-ha! We see what you’re doing here! Dark chocolate and chocolate-covered raisins are some of the healthier sweet treat choices that’ll still satisfy you but beware… you still need to practice portion control and they’re unbelievably moreish!
Fresh or dried fruit, nuts, snack bars, yoghurt drops, chewing gum and mints are healthier alternatives to offer trick-or-treaters, or to enjoy for yourself if you’re watching your waistline.
